Abstract
We propose to further develop a concept for remote passive optical measurement of acoustic target signatures. Potential goals of the measurement are detection, activity assessment, or identification. The measurement concept produces an area image of the vibrational content of the target scene. We propose to build a detector system operating in the thermal infrared band, to field-test the unit, and additionally to extend certain aspects of the theoretical modeling undertaken during Phase I.
