Program Information

IARPA-BAA-17-02

The Amon-Hen program seeks innovative, low-cost approaches for passive, ground-based interferometric imaging of GEO satellites. The program is envisioned as a 33-month effort that is intended to begin by March
2018. Phase 1 will last for a period of 15 months and will focus on the development of component technologies, physics-based system modeling capabilities, and image reconstruction algorithms. Phase 2 will be 18 months and focus on further maturation of component technologies and subsystems to bread board capabilities enabling an end-of-phase, open sky measurement.
