The objectives of this project were to conduct rigorous mathematical and computational research on inverse problems in optical imaging of direct interest to the Army and also the intelligence agencies. Research problems included research on integrated optical systems design, array imaging, and related technologies. Our technique of combining opticalelectronic hardware with digital processing is associated with our work on Pupil-Phase Engineering PPE, for which we have a patent pending. The ARO project was primarily funded over the last three years by supplements from the Biometrics Division at the NSA, the Intelligence Technology Innovation Center at the CIA, and the Disruptive Technology Office. Technology transfer included the transition of our work to the ARL, to the Army Night Vision Lab, and to biometrics groups at the NSA and CIA. Industrial technology transfer took place with Iridian Technologies Co., CDM-Optics Inc., and Sarnoff Corp.
