Abstract
Dual mode seekers can increase lethality, particularly in GPS denied environments or in situations where precision targeting is required, for example in areas where collateral damage must be minimized. The objective of this proposal is to provide a dual mode sensor that provides the greatest utility to the government in understanding the unique opportunities and tradeoffs of an operational capability. Arete proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of unique aspects of dual mode operation. Utilizing data from collocated ladar and radar sensors Arete and its teammate Colorado Engineering Inc. will demonstrate signal and image processing based approaches to navigation and targeting using a dual mode sensor. Processing to extract targets from camouflage and concealment will also be demonstrated. The team will produce an extensible sensor design, to be produced in Phase II which can then serve as an operable technology test and demonstration platform.
