Sensor Company to Develop Image-Enhancement Processor for US Air Force
Irvine Sensors Corp. of Costa Mesa, Calif., is developing an electronic image-enhancement processor for the US Air Force's Wright Laboratory Avionics Directorate. The processor will be part of an add-in board for the lab's 50-billion operations per second image-processing system. Researchers want to achieve a resolution of 1024 3 1024 pixels; current systems offer 128 3 128-pixel resolution. The processor will use a custom version of the company's 3-D artificial neural network real-time processor. A Small Business Innovative Research Phase II award is supporting the $737,000 project.
