Abstract:

The overall goal of this project is to utilize existing hardware and model 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-20A and RMS. With maturing sensor technology, like the Aret developed Streak Tube Imaging Lidar STIL, transitioning to the fleet, this effort has been undertaken to evaluate optimal STIL performance, predict STIL performance with advanced imaging models, and to make these EO sensor modeling tools and predictions available.
