    DARPA Taps Research Teams to Develop Intelligent Event-Based Imagers

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    DARPA has announced three teams of researchers led by Raytheon, BAE Systems, and Northrop Grumman to develop event-based infrared camera technologies under the Fast Event-Based Neuromorphic Camera and Electronics (FENCE) system.

    Event-based, or neuromorphic, cameras are an emerging class of sensors with demonstrated advantages relative to traditional imagers. The systems operate asynchronously and only transmit information about pixels that have changed, meaning that they produce significantly less data and operate with much lower latency and power.

    “Neuromorphic refers to silicon circuits that mimic brain operation — they offer sparse output, low latency, and high energy efficiency,” said Whitney Mason,…
