DARPA is fuding a short wave infrared video that are heavy as two quarters — about 10 grams — and able to pick out child-sized targets from 100 meters away. They would be mounted on helmets or small drones and use less than 200 milliwatts of power. The agency wants an entire featherweight imaging system — including batteries, a goggle-mounted 1280 x 1024 display, and all the signal processing — in a 350-gram package.
