Circle Optics proposes a Phase 1 project for NASA to explore adapting the Circle Optics technology for low parallax, low distortion, panoramic, multi-camera capture devices that provide real-time 360° imagery, to air vehicle sensing. During Phase 1, Circle Optics would work with NASA, the Air Force (Agility Prime) and others in this developing industry to better understand system specifications, including for SWaP-C, resolution, FOV, and spectral content. Circle Optics would also develop more mature optical designs for the Medusa architecture to optimize it for air vehicle sensing. Finally, Circle Optics would produce a Phase II proposal that describes the development of an actual testable prototype optimized imaging system and its’ performance.
Circle Optics will enhance situational awareness to enable intelligent vehicle systems that will allow the development of piloted vehicles augmented with autonomous capabilities and autonomous unmanned air vehicles
