Research Institution
3 Phoenix, Inc. proposes to build, integrate, test and deliver a modular non-rotational high definition compact periscope system for use on submerged or surface vehicles. Our design is compliant with the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) as it is based on commercial interface standards and commercially available electronics. The system will provide instantaneous 360-degree field of view in an exceptionally low profile form factor. The proposed system will provide day and night operations from full direct sunlight to star light background illumination. The unique high dynamic range multi-spectral sensor architecture provides over 120 dB of dynamic range at 30 frames per second. The proposed system is very rugged and requires no moving parts to image the entire scene. Our design incorporates RF antenna capabilities for L1/L2 Band GPS signals and can be extended to include other RF communications bands. The system incorporates a unique permanent super-hydrophobic window modification that prohibits accumulation of water, ice, or debris on the window. The multi-spectral sensor system incorporates image stabilization. The system is comprised of a range of commercially available modules that are integrated and can be adapted to multiple applications. The entire mast system only requires DC power and Ethernet.
