Camgian Microsystems earns SBIR project
Published: April 5,2010
STARKVILLE — Camgian Microsystems Corporation been awarded a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase 1 project by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA’s) Information Processing Techniques Office (IPTO). The amount of the contract was not disclosed.
In this program, Camgian, teamed with BAE Systems Advanced Information Technologies, will aim to develop a multi-tiered intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) network architecture comprising both small unmanned aerial vehicles (sUAVs) and long-endurance unattended ground sensors (UGS) that will provide persistent detection, classification and tracking of ground targets over very large operational areas of interest.
“In today’s asymmetric warfare, the warfighter relies significantly on advanced ground and airborne sensor assets to identify, track and monitor critical targets,” said Dr. Gary Butler, Camgian president and CEO. “As stand-alone platforms, UAVs and UGS have operational limitations such as endurance, coverage and target resolution. The focus of this effort is to fully exploit the fusion of these assets in an automated network architecture that supports cross cueing and data fusion to provide the warfighter with a revolutionary ISR capability.”
The program will leverage Camgian’s expertise in developing advanced, ultra-low power electronic sensor systems with BAE’s innovative image fusion and mining technologies.
“In an ongoing government funded program, Camgian and BAE Systems are developing a multi sensor testbed that combines Camgian’s UGS expertise with BAE’s innovative image fusion and mining technologies,” said Ryan Jorgenson, Camgian’s Vice President of Advanced Systems. “Results from this testbed will be used as the baseline to enable a unique fingerprint of the target to be developed that a UAV can use to reacquire and discriminate potential targets.”
