Electro-Optical/Infrared Surveillance Sensor Technology: The goal of electronic warfare is to control the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum by exploiting, disrupting, or denying enemy use of the spectrum while ensuring its use by friendly forces. To that end, ONR's Electronic Warfare Discovery and Invention (D&I) program invests in science and technology (S&T) initiatives that will provide naval forces (including Navy and Marine Corps) with improved threat warning systems, electronic support measures (ESM), decoys, and electronic attack (EA) countermeasures as well as communication and navigation countermeasures. ONR 312 Electronic Warfare (EW) seeks white papers for efforts that shall develop and demonstrate technologies for the next generation components and systems in Electronic Warfare. White papers should address technology developments in one or more of the following areas. a. Electro-Optical/Infrared Sensor Electronic Field of Regard, Field-of-View (FOV) and Magnification The Office of Naval Research (ONR-312) seeks innovative technology development proposals for small, light-weight electro-optic and infrared sensors and/or technology for dynamically allocatable field of view (FOV)/magnification. The thrust is to develop sensor technology enabling low cost persistent surveillance and targeting. It should be suitable ultimately for small payload, 5 pounds typically, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV). The sensor technology should not be mechanical gimbals or mechanical pan-tilt-zoom. The sensors should be optronically/electronically pointable (ie. optically agile beam steering). The technology should ultimately be capable of up to +/- 90 degrees pointing/steering and electronic magnification (3X to 12X) capable. Electronically addressed active optics should enable optical sensors that can steer quickly between lines of sight and change to multiple fields of view for reconnaissance applications. This includes wide FOV for surveillance, high resolution narrow FOV for target identification and tracking, and fast electronically addressable pointing for tracking of multiple targets. Attention/consideration should be given to knowing where the sensor FOV is directed so image registration and target geolocation can be determined. Passive visible and infrared imaging sensors/technology are of particular interest. b. EO-IR Scene Simulation for Persistent Surveillance Development The objective is to develop a scene simulation capability, in the electro-optical and infrared spectral bands, to use for developing and evaluating automated scene/image understanding and autonomous sensor management algorithms. The effort should be phased and incremental to develop initial capabilities in as timely a manner as possible. Maximum possible use of DoD lab existing simulations/scene generators is encouraged. For example, the NRL TEW Division IR signature and background generation software (IRcruise) and the NVESD Paint the Night software should be considered. The aspect angles from overhead (UAV-based sensors) has not previously been a focus area. The scenario/scene generation should ultimately be capable of generating maritime, littoral, urban and rural scenes. Please see the full announcement for more information.
