Abstract
PrivaTran proposes to develop a Wavefront/ Wavefunction Sensor 3D Imaging high resolution SCA (Sensor Chip Assembly) for use in coherent 3D imaging of long range targets for Space Situation Awareness (SSA) through turbulent atmosphere. The Wavefront/ Wavefunction Sensor will be composed of a sensor assembly utilizing a SOA (Semiconductor Optical Amplifier) / sensor assembly and a ROIC (Read Out Integrated Circuit) receiver chip to provide amplification and high-speed sample-and-hold pulse shape capture. BENEFIT: By capturing the function coherently at a high repetition rate, both coherent amplitude vs. range and Doppler vs. range can be derived. These functions, combined with angle change between pulses allow a full coherent Inverse Synthetic Aperture image to be constructed of extremely long range targets
