Polaris’ Pyxis is a next-generation sensor that images previously undetectable objects in cluttered and traditionally challenging environments. Pyxis is a short-wave infrared polarimeter containing thermal, polarization and hybrid modes that has an extremely high dynamic range. Polaris specializes in customized electro-optical systems for target detection, identification and tracking. Pyxis will perform route clearance for the Navy’s ground vehicles but also has great potential for water and shoreline target detection. Pyxis outperforms current thermal cameras by added polarization sensing, which clearly distinguishes man-made objects from natural ones that are not detectable in standard visible or thermal imagery. Polaris will license Pyxis’ technology to a well- established, respected camera manufacturer, who will integrate Pyxis into their established manufacturing processes. Polaris will develop upgrades and offer technical support.
