Abstract
"The goal of this Phase I SBIR is to define a unified Maritime ISR processor suitablefor use on the GLOBAL HAWK platform. The Phase I effort will adapt and integratealgorithms developed under a variety of Navy programs, that are suitable for usingwith an imaging EO sensor on a long-duration platform for this mission. Thesealgorithms rely extensively on space-time processing to detect, enhance and/orcharacterize the individual elements that make up the complex scene, with which theMaritime ISR processor must contend. This notional processor will be evaluated withthe existing GLOBAL HAWK EO package. If found to be inadequate due to sensorlimitations, an upgrade to the EO package will be defined and the resultantimprovements to the Maritime ISR mission with this upgraded package will beevaluated. If succesul, this Phase I SBIR will provide a roadmap for the use of GLOBAL HAWKin performing the Navy's ISR mission."
