The Oceanit / John’s Hopkins, Applied Physics Laboratory (Oceanit / APL) team proposes a Foveal IRSTS (FIRST system) that can provide extremely accurate tracking information as well as providing discrimination and kill assessment metrics. Custom algorithms and processing methods will take advantage of a custom dual-format architecture to address and develop new optical processing methods and capabilities. The FIRST system will support high fidelity, high-speed imaging without overwhelming onboard aircraft computers that will process optical data and fuse it with radar to provide high-precision position, velocity and acceleration data. The camera system will be flexible enough to address short, intermediate and long range missiles threats.
