Abstract
The Air Force requires a low-cost, accurate Thermal Mapping Device (TMD) to quickly detect a fire and precisely pinpoint its location. Currently, the TMDs in use are quite expensive and are sometimes at risk of loss when used to instrument general tests conducted by the 46th Test Wing. Cost reduction is the main goal of the effort while maintaining detection speed, location accuracy, and the ability to monitor the fire’s progress. Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc. plans to build on previous and ongoing SBIR efforts that developed the basic sensor technologies as well as the wireless data transfer technology. We believe that a gated approach to fire detection and localization using two different detector technologies will offer the best price and performance.
