Research Institution
OptiMetrics proposes to design a sensor system to provide situational awareness for rotary wing aircraft pilots in visually degraded environments (VDE). The design will capitalize on ten years of experience in the development of algorithms to process LADAR and passive sensor imagery which enhance range resolution, image resolution, image quality and support generation of wide field-of-view images. The technology proposed supports high update rates and has suitable size, weight and power requirements for helicopters and tilt-rotor aircraft applications.
