National Harbor, MD
SciTec exhibited its Atmospheric Infra-Red Transmittance Calculator (AIRTraC) application at the Department of the Navy’s 2018 Forum for SBIR/STTR Transition (FST) held in conjunction with the Navy League’s Sea-Air-Space Exposition. SciTec participated in the Navy’s year-long SBIR/STTR Transition Program (STP) which helps small businesses transition Navy SBIR-funded technologies to Department of the Navy or commercial programs.
This program culminates in the annual FST exhibit and opportunity for Principal Investigators to present the results of their research to government and industry. SciTec’s Atmospheric Infra-Red Transmittance Calculator (AIRTraC) application provides Navy Test & Evaluation personnel with a robust, highly automated and user-friendly means of determining atmospheric transmission to characterize infrared sensor performance. AIRTraC leverages sophisticated weather models combined with state-of-the-art statistical techniques to produce a 4D model atmosphere that is accurate over large distances and times. AIRTraC is an integrated system combining a ground meteorological station with a java-based application to calculate the time-dependent transmittance over a sensor-to-target optical path. AIRTraC is currently undergoing further research and development under a Small Business Innovative Research Phase II Enhancement program.
