Abstract:

The overall goal of this project is to utilize existing assets to address issues critical to the operational deployment of advanced electro-optic identification EOID mine countermeasure MCM sensors. EO identification of mines is specified as a requirement for the next generation of Navy MCM systems e.g., AQS-20X and RMS. With maturing sensor technology like the Aret developed Streak Tube Imaging Lidar STIL, a concerted effort is being undertaken to evaluate optimal sensor performance, predict sensor performance with advanced imaging models, and to make this EO sensor capability available to the fleet.
