Paper Abstract

A unique polarization camera has been fabricated out of a wire grid polarizer attached to the surface of a InGaAs FPA. The wire grid was configured as a Stokes polarimeter. Data has been collected for both space and earthbound applications using both active and passive illumination. A mini-range and scaled targets of representative materials were constructed to simulate space based distances for both resolved and unresolved targets. For the purpose of providing advanced warning for rotorcraft, data has been collected on power lines to test the feasibility and appropriateness of this type of technology to aid in their detection.
