Paper Abstract

We have successfully developed an innovative, miniaturized, and lightweight PTZ UCAV imager called OmniBird for unmanned air vehicle taking off and landing operations. OmniBird is developed through a SBIR funding from NAVAIR. It is to fit in 8 in3. The designed zoom capability allows it to acquire focused images for targets ranging from 10 to 250 feet. The innovative panning mechanism also allows the system to have a field of view of +/- 100 degrees. Initial test results show that the integrated optics, camera sensor, and mechanics solution allow the OmniBird to stay optically aligned and shock-proof under harsh environments.
