Abstract
The Multispectral Super-Resolution Sensor Technology (MSST) FPA is the centerpiece for a potentially revolutionary technical break-through required in the successful development of simultaneous sensing in 3-5 bands with improved FPA formats goals of achieving resolutions of greater than 10,000 x 10,000 pixels. The MSST’s innovative technology will attempt breakthroughs to a high sensitivity super-resolved detectors with multispectral resolution in SWIR- MWIR- LWIR band detectors. Using a biologically inspired architecture for MSST, we plan to demonstrate enhanced NEP, improved resolution, on FPA target extraction, and agile spectral processing.
