Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-193
Budget: 04/21/00 - 12/31/02

Polarization imaging holds promise for providing significant improvements in contrast in a number of target detection and discrimination applications. It has been demonstrated that manmade objects have a significantly stronger polarization signal than natural backgrounds. There is also strong promise for improved target-background contrast wit...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-120
Budget: 12/17/99 - 12/17/01

Polarization imaging, particularly in the LWIR, holds promise for a number of target detection applications. Polarization sensing takes advantage of geometry and material differences that enhances conventional IR imagery and potentially surpasses its performance in low contrast situations. Previous systems developed for polarization imaging ha...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-021
Budget: 11/23/99 - 11/23/01

There is a need for Spatial Light Modulators (SLM)'s that have a few nanometers phase resolution, have> 128X128 pixels, are fast (>500Hz), have at least 2-pi range of modulation, and have continuous phase capability. Devices of this type would have applications in the areas of displays, simulators, photolithography, optical interconnects, wave f...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-148
Budget: 11/18/99 - 11/18/01

SY Technology, Inc. proposes to design, build and demonstrate a smart camera capable of screening a 512X512-correlation surface or an image to identify, enhance, rank and output only regions of interest (ROI) for further processing. A processing rate in excess of 60 frames per second will be achieved by implementing an array of smart pixels at t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-174
Budget: 05/03/99 - 02/03/00

SY Technology, Inc. can develop the ability to design and fabricate surface microstructures that function as anti-reflective coatings in infrared materials including the III-IV and group IV semiconductors and ceramics. Through experiments, SY has developed lithography processes for InSb, InAs, GaP, Ge, Si, TiO2, SrTiO2, and YSZ. We propose to us...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-193
Budget: 04/23/99 - 01/24/00

Polarization imaging holds promise for providing significant improvements in contrast in a number of target detection and discrimination applications. It has been demonstrated that manmade objects have a significantly stronger polarization signal than natural backgrounds. There is also strong promise for improved target-background contrast with ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-148
Budget: 12/18/98 - 06/18/99

SY Technology, Inc. proposes to develop a smart camera to automatically identify regions of interest (ROI) in imagery. The camera has two target recognition applications. First, to process a correlation surface (obtained by correlating an image with a filter) to identify, enhance and output ROIs for storage and further processing. The same camer...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-120
Budget: 12/16/98 - 08/09/99

Polarization imaging holds promise for providing significant improvements in contrast in a number of target detection and discrimination applications. In several recent development efforts, it has been demonstrated that manmade objects have a significantly stronger polarization signal than natural backgrounds resulting in good contrast that comp...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF98-170
Budget: 05/14/98 - 02/14/99

High-speed computer and high resolution display technology have advanced to the point that two dimensional (2-D) display technologies present more information than can be efficiently used. Advanced computer and display technologies have been combined with advances in spatial light modulation (SLM) technology to provide the user 3-D image cues. ...
