Research Institution
"The U.S. Navy has aggressively pursued the implementation of Smart Ship technology initiatives to achieve Total Ownership Cost (TOC) savings primarily through reduced manpower requirements. These reductions are enabled by innovative adaptation ofCommercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) technologies, substantial changes in Policy and Procedures and new Maintenance methods such as Condition Based Maintenance (CBM). The team also brings a wealth of technical experience in state of the art spatial phase videodevelopment, passive 3D reconstruction, shadow penetration, hardware prototyping, and other applicable video sensing technologies. Photon-X team offers a new innovative video technology, which is capable of breaking down and recording the phase elements of the light in a revolutionary manner. Photon-X has developed a patented imaging process, which has demonstrated initial proofof concept for passive shadow/fog/haze penetration, passive 3D video processing/reconstruction, measurement of the structural changes in materials and enhanced biometric recognition and tracking. The Photon-X's innovations are: (1) Passive real-time personnel identification (Biometrics) and tracking using invisible passive tagging techniques. (2) Enhanced vision through rough environmental conditions, such as fog, haze and shadowed low light areas. (3) Visually detect structural changes in materials and automation of the machinery conditions
