The Ministry of Defence (MOD) Competition for High-Resolution Imaging, 2016 is a Centre for Defence Enterprise (CDE) themed competition for new electro-optical/infrared (EO/IR) technologies and concepts for high-resolution imaging in poor weather conditions.
- In the competition for High-Resolution Imaging, 2016, the Ministry of Defence is looking forward to passive and active optical imaging through clouds.
- Light Detection And Ranging (Lidar) and Laser Detection And Ranging (Ladar) are active imaging techniques that give enhanced capability through obscuration.
- Technologies like single photon counting and ballistic photons can improve the performance to provide a change in capability.
- The Ministry of Defence is interested in proposals like polarization effects or novel spectral to improve contrast in bad weather conditions.
- Passive techniques are less effective and more easily exploited.
- Proposals like new sensors to amplify the low-contrast images or advanced image processing techniques can be included.
Value of the competition
- £500,000 is awarded towards the 1st phase of the competition.
- The proposals should not exceed £100,000 or 6 months for phase1.
- The Ministry of Defence might fund several projects between £50,000 and £100,000 lasting 6 months.
