Abstract
Amherst Systems is developing low-power, reconfigurable sensors that reduce video bandwidth but maintain high resolution in real-time surveillance, targeting, and precision strike applications. Our Dynamically Reconfigurable Vision (DRV) technology, through on-chip multiple windowing, seeks to reduce the amount of irrelevant spectral information that is collected, and thus make more effective use of available bandwidth than is possible with conventional imaging technology. Minimization of irrelevant data in the video processing chain reduces processing requirements and allows communication of more information in real-time over bandwidth-limited channels. This leads to a reduction in unit power consumption, complexity, size, and cost. Here we present an experiment that integrated our prototype DRV camera and omnidirectional optics supplied by the Canadian Defence Research Establishment Suffield.
