Research Institution
Solid State Scientific Corporation proposes to develop and demonstrate a unique sensor capable of providing detection and real-time classification of energetic point-target events. The novel dual-band spectral-temporal sensor addresses the specific need to identify rocket-propelled and explosive projectile threats from airborne platforms, as well as provide situational awareness capabilities by classifying energetic sources in the battlefield. The new sensor is designed to unambiguously acquire the spectral-temporal signature of point targets in both the visible and MWIR spectrums for use as the input to current classification algorithms. The sensor will have no moving parts and will be able to sample the data at rates in excess of 200 spectral signatures per second for un-cued events. The development and demonstration of this sensor represent a unique opportunity in spectral-temporal sensing.
