Research Institution
OKSI will assemble a suite of VNIR / SWIR hyperspectral sensors, ancillary sensors for meteorology, spectro-radiometrically calibrated light sources, and panels painted with Navy colors and camouflage. Radiative transfer measurements will be conducted for horizontal path just above the water under various weather / solar / sea conditions, at multiple ranges. Spectral transmission will be characterized and target signature collected. The transmission and ancillary data will be used to generate MODTRAN atmospheres that characterize the over-the-water horizontal-path operations. Target signatures will be used to demonstrate detection and identification performance characteristics such as ROC curves. Real-time target detection analysis performed on a GPU will be demonstrated under an optional task.
