Automated Pixel Geo-Registration for Precise Imaging

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: James L. Carr, President & Executive Scientist
Award Amount: $99,993.00
We study the problem of sensor calibration as it might be applied to a tactical UAV system where operability and robustness are paramount. A large number of airframes and diversity of sensor types argues for an approach that is low cost (exploiting calibration targets in the field) and applicable… More
