Paper Abstract

This paper describes a Hybrid Mosaic on a Silicon Sandwich (HYMOSS) module with the Dynamic Stare algorithm being investigated for possible application in an air-to-air missile. The demonstration program will consist of a Phase I study and a possible Phase II hardware development program. The programs will determine the guidance characteristics of an air-to-air missile seeker utilizing the HYMOSS module with Dynamic Stare. Dynamic Stare is a combination of a dithered scan mechanism and a staring FPA which can be used to separate moving targets and backgrounds. Increases in acquisition range and processing speed using this technology are illustrated.
