Award List:

A Novel Infrared Tag for Accurately Tracking Multiple Targets in Six Dimensions

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr. Yong-sheng Chao
Award Amount: $99,918.00
Abstract:
The technique for accurately measuring the positions and orientations of targets in relation to a fixed reference is of fundamental importance to a number of military and commercial applications. For example, in the simulation experiments for testing of installed, integrated avionics, the… More

Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Yong-Sheng Chao, Chief Scientist
Award Amount: $69,957.00

Laser discrimination of unresolved space and airborne targets based on the effects of surface correlations on the backscattered state of polarization

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Brian G. Hoover, Owner / Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,937.00
Abstract:
Changes in the state of polarization of scattered laser radiation can be utilized to discriminate among targets according to surface microstructures on the wavelength scale. Newly-developed rigorous electromagnetic coherence theory is applied to the inverse problem of laser discrimination of… More

Optimization of Active Polarimeters for ATR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Brian Hoover, Chief Scientist – (505) 250-1685
Award Amount: $99,968.00
Abstract:
Use of polarization signatures can dramatically improve the performance of active or laser sensors for automated target recognition (ATR) and other applications. While their potential has been widely recognized, laser polarimeters have been limited by technology gaps in two areas: utilization of… More

Optimization of Active Polarimeters for ATR

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Brian G. Hoover, President – (505) 250-9586
Award Amount: $497,542.00
Abstract:
Despite its sensitivity to diverse shape, surface, and material properties, laser polarimetry is one of the primary remaining remote-sensing modalities yet to be effectively utilized. The traditional limitations of laser polarimetry in a field sensor have been 1) making efficient use of… More
