Abstract
Cyan Systems has designed a new Multimode Superresolution Sensor Technology (MSST). The MSST is a centerpiece of new technology allowing improved resolution over existing sensors, increased range of target ID, improved Noise Equivalent Power (NEP). The MSST is designed to revolutionize the resolution and sensitivity of IR sensors by oversampling the image and using biological inspired small pixel pooling to aid in detecting objects while reducing the False alarm rate. Cyans MSST pixel pooling is a technique to increase effective acuity using super resolution and has been observed in animal and human vision. This pooling has been shown to improve dim target detection, and dramatically reduce false alarms.
