Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-024
Budget: 08/02/16 - 02/01/17

Covert and robust recognition of individuals is a goal for military check points and entry control points overseas and for law enforcement and border control domestically. Face recognition in the visible spectrum is an important biometric modality and while it has increased in maturity, there are situations in which imaging in different spectra...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-057
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

The SWIR polarimetry has potential applications for target detection, discrimination, and tracking for land and maritime. In recent years, researchers have applied imaging polarimetry to a number of applications including detection of disturbed earth, detection of objects and swimmers in water, and target detection with background clutter. SWIR ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-070
Budget: 02/18/16 - 02/17/17

The Sky Polarization Azimuth Sensing System (SkyPASS) exploits naturally occurring sky polarization to measure absolute heading and offers significant performance enhancement over current azimuth sensing systems such as digital compasses or ring laser gyros. The SkyPASS system is a passive optical sensor that can operate at 10s of Hz, has no war...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-082
Budget: 09/21/15 - 03/20/16

The High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator has been demonstrated to be an effective system to counter rockets, artillery, and mortars (RAM) and has the potential to address threat unmanned aerial systems. The system effectiveness is limited by the supporting acquisition and tracking systems that place the kill laser on the target. In particular, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-071
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

We propose to investigate the benefits of imaging polarimetry in multiple wavebands with the goal to reduce the workload of the Apache crew, focusing on the task load of the gunner. Imaging polarimetry has shown significant advantages under several conditions to outperform standard broadband radiometric imagers in locating targets and suppressin...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-101
Budget: 07/24/14 - 09/13/15

ABSTRACT: The next generation of precision guided munitions (PGM) need to have highly capable and multi modal sensors that offer the potential for both autonomous as well as man-in-the-loop target designation, ideally in the same munition with multiple modes accessible and switchable on demand within a single fly out. Such a sensor would offer ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-007
Budget: 05/22/14 - 11/21/14

Polaris Sensor Technologies proposes to use an innovative range imaging technique for characterizing the blast effects of a warhead. The proposed effort will integrate highly sensitive image intensifier technologies with pulsed LED emitters designed to capture high-speed volumetric events. The proposed technique will leverage the unique gating ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-008
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The US Army employs Semi-Active Laser seeker (SAL-seeker) sensors on several missile platforms to provide precision guidance to targets. The sensor for a SAL-seeker is typically a narrow FOV quad-cell based sensor integrated onto a gimbal, providing a wide Field of Regard to acquire and lock onto a laser designator beam for guidance to the targ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-070
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This proposed effort directly addresses the stated need of the solicitation, which is to develop a low cost (less than $2k) sensor that can accurately measure angular rate and position of a weapon system, which is ultra low power, capable of determining absolute heading, and requiring no initial or sustainment calibration. Polaris proposes a no...
