Phase II proposal for SBIR topic A14-039. Per the Phase II solicitation, CoVar Applied Technologies, Inc., proposes to utilize the novel features for the reliable detection and classification of explosively formed penetrators (EFPs) that were developed in Phase I to construct an autonomous EFP detection algorithm and planned EFP detection system. The proposed Phase II effort focuses on the development of algorithmic components to enable robust detection and classification of EFPs in the presence of camouflage, enable adaptive standoff detection, and to implement the autonomous algorithm in a modular real-time framework. The resulting novel algorithms and associated real-time implementation will serve as the software for a system integration effort moving forward into Phase III.
