Multispectral Imaging, Detection and Active Reflectance (MiDAR)

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

Multispectral Imaging, Detection and Active Reflectance

MiDAR is capable of imaging objects from kilometers away in complete darkness, or with ambient light, at 4 MP with 90 color channels or up to 1500 color channels per second at reduced resolution. Such a system enables multispectral video at high frame-rates and has broad applicability to remote sensing from aircraft as well as robotic explorers operating in light-limited environments, such as those beyond Earth orbit. The goal of the project is to enable a 5-Channel TRL6 UAV demonstration of MiDAR and a 32-Channel TRL4 demonstration of MiDAR in laboratory.
