Abstract

ABSTRACT: SA Photonics is pleased to propose the EagleEye missile warning system for aircraft situational awareness. SA Photonics will team with the University of Arizona Optical Science Center (OSC) and North Carolina State University in the development of the compact, wide bandwidth flight qualifiable systems. The EagleEye combines the OSC expertise in advanced detection systems with SA Photonics expertise in compact advanced lens design, wide field of regard opto-mechanics, and space qualifiable electronics. BENEFIT: The proposed development will enable the Air Force to have significant new capabilities in determining the early detection of surface to air and air to air missiles to enable utilizing counter measure techniques.
