Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-032
Budget: 09/18/12 - 09/18/14

Despite its sensitivity to diverse shape, surface, and material properties, laser polarimetry is one of the primary remaining remote-sensing modalities yet to be effectively utilized. The traditional limitations of laser polarimetry in a field sensor have been 1) making efficient use of multi-dimensional polarimeter data, and 2) achieving requi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-032
Budget: 06/08/11 - 12/08/11

Use of polarization signatures can dramatically improve the performance of active or laser sensors for automated target recognition (ATR) and other applications. While their potential has been widely recognized, laser polarimeters have been limited by technology gaps in two areas: utilization of high-dimensional data and operation in a real-ti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-002
Budget: 04/14/05 - 04/16/06

Changes in the state of polarization of scattered laser radiation can be utilized to discriminate among targets according to surface microstructures on the wavelength scale. Newly-developed rigorous electromagnetic coherence theory is applied to the inverse problem of laser discrimination of unresolved space and airborne targets based on the ef...
