The Compressive Optical MONTAGE Photography Initiative (COMP-I) is an initiative under DARPA's MONTAGE program. The goals of COMP-I are to produce 1 mm thick visible imaging systems and 5 mm thick IR systems without compromising pixel-limited resolution. Innovations of COMP-I include focal-plane coding, block-wise focal plane codes, birefringent, holographic and 3D optical elements for focal plane remapping and embedded algorithms for image formation. In addition to meeting MONTAGE specifications for sensor thickness, focal plane coding enables a reduction in the transverse aperture size, physical layer compression of multispectral and hyperspectral data cubes, joint optical and electronic optimization for 3D sensing, tracking, feature-specific imaging and conformal array deployment.
