Abstract
Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc. is proposing in the Phase I to demonstrate the feasibility of polarization imaging by developing target detection and recognition algorithms that exploit the information contained in polarization imagery. Once the feasibility is established, Polaris will develop concepts and a sensor design for integration into the F/A-18. The Phase I Option deliverable will be a sensor design that meets the SHARP SWAP requirements with complete design documents ready for implementation in the Phase II. In the Phase II, Polaris will build, calibrate, and test the polarimetric sensor and make it ready for integration onto a Navy platform.
