Department of Defense: Office of Naval Research Deadline: September 12, 2013
The past decade has seen an explosive growth in the capabilities of imaging sensors operating in visible and infrared bands of the electromagnetic spectrum. Recent research programs from Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) have led to imaging systems that are capable of capturing images with over a billion pixels (Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Imaging Sensor (ARGUS-IS), Advanced Wide FOV Architecture for Image Reconstruction (AWARE)). Mid wave and long wave infrared imaging systems have not achieved comparable performance yet but, spurred by detector array developments under tri-service Vital Infrared Sensor Technology Acceleration (VISTA) program, systems that can capture several hundred megapixel imagery are being attempted, such as Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Infra Red (ARGUS-IR).
