Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-015
Budget: 07/15/05 - 01/15/07

We propose to implement image-processing algorithms that greatly enhance resolution of closely spaced objects (CSOs), sensitivity, and tracking accuracy in real-time missile-guidance systems. These enhancements are accomplished without prior knowledge of the number and composition of the targets within a CSO cluster. The proposed capabilities ar...

Phase 1 SBIR

Topic: MDA04-015
Budget: 06/03/04 - 12/02/04

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02-003
Budget: 01/26/04 - 01/12/06

The Pixon method enables reliable and accurate imaging well below the diffraction limit. It therefore offers to missile defense two wholly new options for detection and tracking of closely-spaced objects (CSOs): (1) Pixon processing can increase resolution by a factor of four beyond the diffraction limit. It thus can resolve targets at ranges...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

75339-Annular-dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy (ADF-STEM) makes possible the formation of incoherent electron images with atomic-scale spatial resolution. However, two sources of error degrade the quality of these images: (1) electron counting noise and (2) blurring, which results from either geometric aberrations in the el...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA03-045
Budget: 07/23/03 - 01/22/04

Vision systems of guided munitions must contend with these critical issues: 1. Distant targets, which give intrinsically low signals, 2. Strong backgrounds (visible or infrared), which elevate sensor noise and reduce target contrast, 3. Atmospheric turbulence and instrumental diffraction, which blur tracker images, further reducing signal-to-no...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY02-T010
Budget: 07/21/03 - 07/20/05

Phase I R&D demonstrated feasibility and usefulness of the Pixon-method image reconstruction algorithm for a restricted class of MRFM images. The technical objectives of Phase II research are (1) to optimize data acquisition strategies and reconstruction methods for general images, (2) to incorporate into the reconstruction regimen provisions fo...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 01-1
Budget: 01/01/01 - 12/31/01

The astronomical community recognizes the Pixon(TM) method as the highest performance image reconstruction method ever developed. In addition to tremendous performance gains relative to competing methods (factors of several in resolution, orders of magnitude in sensitivity and robust artifact rejection), the Pixon method is much faster than stan...
