The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency will conduct a Proposers Day on Sept. 30 in Arlington, Virginia, to discuss the Reconfigurable Imaging program that aims to develop a single camera sensor designed to simultaneously perform several imaging functions within its field of view.
“What we are aiming for is a single, multi-talented camera sensor that can detect visual scenes as familiar still and video imagers do, but that also can adapt and change their personality and effectively morph into the type of imager that provides the most useful information for a given situation,“ Jay Lewis, ReImagine program manager, said in a statement published Friday.
Under the four-year program, potential proposers will build software-configurable applications based on a common reconfigurable digital circuit to be developed by MIT-Lincoln Laboratory, a federally-funded research-and-development center.
Selected awardees will then design analog interface and megapixel detector layers as well as related machine learning algorithms and software that will work to convert various signals into digital data and configure the imaging sensor to function in various imaging operations based on the context in the scene.
The agency said in a notice posted Friday on FedBizOpps the Proposers Day will feature overview presentations by government staff and team-building opportunities for event participants.
Registration for the event is open until Sept. 27, according to the notice.
