Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-026
Budget: 09/13/06 - 12/30/08

New and improved image processing algorithms are developed for application in Electro-optical (EO) sensors suitable for use in a cruise missile defense system. The algorithms achieve higher levels of background clutter suppression than have been reported previously, leading to improvements in target detection probability, target tracking accura...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-026
Budget: 04/22/05 - 02/28/06

This program evaluates the feasibility of a spaced-based infrared sensor for detecting, tracking, and spectrally classifying cruise missiles that fly over a structured earth background. Recent advances in image processing technology, by SAGE and subcontractors Boeing and DRS, have shown improved suppression of (time varying) structured earth bac...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-061
Budget: 05/25/04 - 11/25/04

This program defines (and evaluates) a new and improved multispectral infrared imaging sensor for use on an Exo-atmospheric Kill Vehicle. The sensor includes processing algorithms for discriminating between threat targets and decoys despite the presence of countermeasures, such as a chaff/aerosol cloud. The sensor uses a pair of fast-sampled...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-010
Budget: 09/22/03 - 03/22/03

This program defines, and evaluates, new and improved infrared-sensor image processing algorithms for assisting in ballistic missile target/decoy discrimination. The sensor uses a fast-sampled large-mosaic detector array to allow long image integration times that attenuate the rms value of sensor electronic noise. Other sensor and system nois...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-003
Budget: 09/17/01 - 09/16/03

This program develops a method for improved hyperspectral infrared measurements on sub-pixel targets that move through heavy (or light) background clutter. Thd basis for our new approach to hyperspectral measurements arises from a currently active BMDO SBIR Phase II program that has developed algorithms for (single spectral band) infrared senso...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-003
Budget: 04/04/00 - 10/31/00

On a current SBIR Phase II program (Reference 1), SAGE Technologies Inc.has developed infrared sensor signal processing algorithms that promisesignificant improvements in BMD infrared sensor performance whendetecting and tracking target objects that move relative to a strongbackground clutter. The findings show that best performance is obtainedu...
