As is well known, conventional passive imagery data (2D) can be substantially compressed because the object space often contains redundant information.  Conventional cameras take measurements using a pixel-basis and form image-like representations of an object.  Whereas, Feature Specific Imagers (FSI) take measurements using non-image-like basis sets.  These basis sets are often times optimized for the… Read More


NSF Phase IB funding can be used to enhance investment capital that a small coompany brings to the table.  Under this project, Bridger Photonics and its collaborators at Montana State University will benchmark their innovative focus-control technologies based on deformable MEMS mirrors.  The goal is to show that this technology substantially outperforms conventional techniques for… Read More
