The Seeker is developing a multi-spectral visual system; however, fusing the inputs of offset optical sources results in parallax - a perceived change in the position of an object due to the offset positions of the optical sensors. This Challenge seeks a system and/or algorithm that provides near real-time parallax correction for multiple, offset optical sources.
This is a Reduction-to-Practice Challenge in two phases that requires a written proposal and algorithm (Phase I) and experimental proof (Phase II).

Plates of body armor can effectively protect the wearer from sustaining injury from small arms fire, but only in covered areas. The head, neck, and groin are some of the areas that remain uncovered because the ballistic materials in use are thick and not inherently flexible, thus hindering mobility. The Seeker desires a new approach for providing maximum ballistic coverage without range of motion limitations.
This is an Ideation Challenge with a guaranteed award for at least one submitted solution.
