Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System (CT2WS)darpa.mil
Warfighters need to be able to see and identify threats at as great a distance as possible. Binoculars have not yet integrated the technology or biology that could help maximize this capability. The Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System program will bring these technologies to develop soldier-portable visual threat detection devices. These systems will provide greater visual information about a warfighter's surroundings while providing tools to initiate an early response when threats emerge. This program will integrate areas of technology such as flat-field, wide-angle optics, large pixel-count digital imaging, and cognitive visual processing algorithms. Other features include ultra low-power analog/digital hybrid signal processing, operator neural signature detection processing, and operator interface systems. Success from this effort will result in a composite software/human-in-the-loop system capable of high-fidelity detection with extremely low false alarm rates without adding to already significant warfighter combat loads.
