||Electromagnetic Systems, Inc. (EMSI) proposes to apply the TRL 6 moving ground vehicle radar imaging technology that it developed under Air Force SBIR funding to the classification of moving ground targets from Navy ISR and strike platforms. Our moving vehicle imaging technology reliably produces high-quality, wide dynamic range moving vehicle imagery with minimal impact on sensor area coverage rate. EMSI has demonstrated that that these moving vehicle images can support feature-aided GMTI tracking and target classification with extremely high confidence values. We have commenced discussions with a Navy airborne radar vendor and we are confident that a prototype system can be tested within the time and fiscal constraints of a Phase II SBIR. A major emphasis of proposed Phase I effort will consist of planning for this Phase II test.|
||EMSI's moving ground vehicle radar imaging technology has been described as "a key enabler for feature-aided tracking and a game changer for automated target recognition". A successful Phase II flight test demonstration will lead to numerous airborne radar transitions. Non DoD transitions opportunities exist in airborne border security applications and drug enforcement activities.|
