Research Institution
Solid State Scientific Corporation is pleased to propose a CPP Phase II program to develop an uncooled hostile fire indication system with hostile fire identification. Algorithm concepts using bands in the visible through the (uncooled) SWIR will be explored for identifying threats and their angle of arrival while rejecting false alarm sources in clutter environments. The band pass of the narrow-band filters in the prototype will be selected and demonstrated for optimum hostile fire identification capability. In addition, a unique spectral imaging sensor prototype for threat warning will be developed. This CPP Phase II approach will capitalize on the design concepts created during previous efforts, and will complement other hostile fire indicating system development efforts, including a Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD) program. Development of this sensor represents a unique opportunity to enhance aircraft survivability equipment with a pre-production prototype that will transition to US DOD airborne assets.
