  • Patent number: 10317532
    Abstract: A laser is used to emit a diverging laser flash configured to illuminate a detection zone. A pseudoimaging optical receiver system is used to detect reflections from objects in the detection zone. The receiver system includes a time-gated photodetector array that is used to record signatures in a voxel array. A voxel processing module receives the voxel array and detects a reference clutter signal within the array. Potential targets are then detected according to target signals in relation to the reference clutter signal.

  • Patent number: 9711833
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for tunable band pass filtering for Tunable RF Anti-Jamming Systems. A tunable notch filter includes a transmission line coupled to an antenna, a splitter, a band-stop filter, a polarity inverter, and a combiner. In operation, the band-stop filter suppresses predetermined frequency bands of a received signal creating a filtered signal, the polarity inverter creates an inverted signal, and the combiner combines the filtered and inverted signals to create a pass band including the predetermined frequency bands and suppressing frequency bands adjacent the predetermined frequency bands.
