Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of New Mexico

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT06
Budget: 02/21/13 - 11/22/13

ABSTRACT: Feature extraction and target recognition suffer from a lack of a reliable model for both exploitable target features and the electromagnetic signature they possess. Signature data are often hard to interpret and invert to recover the target robustly. Bayesian learning approaches to statistical pattern recognition are based on the use...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: IC-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a revolutionary approach to the lens and opto-mechanical design and fabrication process for long wave infrared (LWIR) imagers with the goal of reducing cost, size, and weight. To date, the high cost of sensors has made LWIR imagers accessible only in markets where perfo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A10-175
Budget: 06/14/11 - 12/14/11
PI: Hans Wach

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a stereo infrared imaging system capable of simultaneously acquiring panoramic wide field of view for autonomous mapping and navigation, and a rapidly steerable high resolution field of view to improve human perception and collision avoidance for high speed teleoperation. Accur...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-149
Budget: 05/20/11 - 05/20/13
PI: Hans Wach

Accurate Position Location Information (PLI) enables deployment and coordination of ground-based assets, e.g. soldiers and ground vehicles, and is required for safe and effective completion of diverse missions. PLI from computer machine vision, e.g. visual navigation, has the potential to replace GPS in urban, indoor, high cover, and jammed GPS ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop and test real-time process monitoring systems to support manufacturing of miniature digital cameras. Rapid growth in unit volume of digital cameras for cellphones and consumer goods has outpaced the industry?s manufacturing process monitoring technology. Except for simp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: IC-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will research a revolutionary approach to the lens and opto-mechanical design, fabrication process, and image signal processing of infrared (IR) imagers with the goal of reducing cost, size, and weight. To date, the high cost of sensors has made IR imagers accessible only in markets ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB093-008
Budget: 02/22/10 - 09/04/10

There is a strong need for improved panoramic imaging and situational awareness for many military and commercial systems. Security and border patrol systems demand greater panoramic viewing with the ability to zoom into potential threats for identification. Most importantly, improved situational awareness will help to protect our soldiers espe...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: M2-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will address the technical barrier of manufacturing error identification which fundamentally limits the achievable yields in the production of miniature cameras. The methods employed in miniature camera manufacturing severely limit access to metrology data at the component-level. Ade...
