DEFENSE

HNu Defense is developing advanced hyper-dimensional imaging and laser technologies with important military, aviation and scientific applications. These include state-of the-art electro-opto-mechanical systems for the Department of Defense, aerospace companies and universities. HNu Defense is currently in the process of commercializing a laser zoom designator beacon to be used in aircraft and unmanned vehicles. For the U.S Air Force and Navy HNu is also perfecting flash hyper-dimensional imaging technology for situational awareness.

When a missile launch or intercept event occurs, there is a critical requirement to provide an accurate assessment as quickly as possible to determine the status of the threat. However, the quantity, quality, and timeliness of threat data are currently limited by the techniques available, which presently are capable of evaluating a very small segment of the event data. HNu has developed advanced multi-dimensional imaging systems to provide more rapid and more percise data to support instant evaluation of events for both anti-missile testing and ballistic missile defense. HNu’s breakthrough “FLASH” technology will enhance and expedite the capture and evaluation of event data, significantly expanding DoD’s testing capabilities, thus optimizing defense readiness.

To rapidly and accurately complete a threat assessment and to evaluate the threat after a capture event, risk mitigation requires real time information. Currently, DoD components utilize two types of hyperspectral imaging: a “passive scanning” of a narrow band of time or spectral bandwidth, or, alternatively, an evaluation of four disparate temporal data points across various spectral bands. These imaging techniques, which afford only sparse data sampling, are unable to track and capture the thermal, spectral, and spatial changes that occur in the moments before and after time-critical events, thus limiting the capability to collect and evaluate valuable data. Passive scanning is also a relatively slow technique that cannot quickly determine composition of material or discriminate among multiple targets or events.
