Abstract
The Navy requires improved methods for passive rangefinding using imagery obtained from photonics masts. Present passive ranging methods rely on manual measurement of object size requiring some advance knowledge of vessel size. Creare proposes development of a passive rangefinding algorithm that provides fully automated measurement of the range to distant targets. During Phase I, a prototype version of the system will be developed and tested using a variety of image data. During Phase II, we will develop a fully automated version of the system for testing and evaluation by the Navy.
