There is a need to assess whether different strategies can be evolved for developing EO/IR systems to support the generation of space-variant multi-domain, signature discriminating imagery without the penalty imposed by the generation and communication of large datasets. In addition it would be beneficial if such strategies could avoid challenges in relation to complexity and the cost of manufacture for both the defence and medical arenas. This paper revisits some of the constructs exploited in biological imaging systems, notably those found in the family of stomatopod crustaceans and assesses the feasibility of pursuing some of the ideas generated from that study using novel comb filter technologies in the context of emerging focal plane and optical system technologies.
