The program objective is to develop and evaluate a prototype spectral polarimeter that could be used as an ISR sensor package on organic UAVs. The sensor employs advanced, visible-band technology to support littoral-zone warfare mission products, such asoceanographic characterization in VSW, including the surf; detection and characterization of stealthy or intrinsically low-contrast targets such as submerged mines; and accurate geo-location of these products, all from tactically relevant standoff ranges.The commercial ariborne survey industry needs advanced sensor packages to support improved performance (response times, accuracy, coverage rates, discrimination, etc.) for numerous emergency situations, such as forest-fire mapping (U.S. Forest Service),oil-slick tracking and coastal storm damage mapping (FEMA, NOAA), and search and rescue operations (USCG).
