A better eye in the sky

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


Various new technical innovations that provide assistance in battlefield are presented. The Advanced Responsive Tactically Effective Military Imaging spectrometer (ARTEMIS) is intended to supply tactical information, such as the existence of camouflage, disturbed earth, or other signs of enemy activity. Prototypes of digital night-vision goggle, developed by BAE Systems, fuse data from various thermal and low-light sensors to improve situational awareness. A program Super-Resolution Vision System, funded by DARPA, is aimed to develop sighting systems that offer better than diffraction-limited imaging in a field device carried by a soldier. Nasser Peyghambarian, a professor of optics at the University of Arizona in Tucson, has commented on rewritable holograms that could allow three-dimensional rendering of battlefields and other military command-and-control applications.
