Paper Abstract

The objective of this project is to seamlessly integrate multiple spectral-band focal plane detector arrays into a single multi-band imaging sensor. The resulting product can be applied to a telescope or a microscope, as simply as changing a lens on a camera. The video stream output provides a set of co-registered digital images from a multiple of spectral bands spanning the Visible, NIR, MWIR and LWIR radiation regions (.4um to 14um). These images have a format that is suitable both for direct observation by a human operator and as a data feed for Automated Target Recognition (ATR) algorithms.
