On the Hilltop, An SMU Prof Is Creating a Teensy-Weensy Camera for the U.S. Military
Southern Methodist University
Wired's Danger Room blog this morning visits the SMU campus, where Electrical Engineering Associate Professor Marc Christensen is helping the military create a powerful paper-thin camera that uses low-resolution sensors to create a hi-res image. Notes David Hambling, "troops and unmanned aircraft could be the first to benefit" from the invention, code name "Panoptes" after a figure from Greek mythology. Back in March, SMU provided some details; Wired has much more today, including what "Panoptes" stands for: "Processing Arrays of Nyquist-limited Observations to Produce a Thin Electro-optic Sensor." Duh.
