Abstract:

Referentia Systems Incorporated proposes a new and unique technology for real-time all-weather combat identification. The SBIR solicitation suggested a feature-based solution, but our technology delivers superior performance because it is not feature-based. Instead of using templates, and instead of extracting features from sensor data, Referentia's technology fits 3D models of objects directly to the sensor data, bypassing feature-extraction and all of its pitfalls, such as feature explosion in visually complicated scenes. After fitting known objects to the data, our technology can then perform the reverse operation: convert the remaining unfitted data to 3D models, for immediate classification by a human operator (e.g. friend/foe/neutral). It can then save new objects in a local or global knowledge base for immediate use by any linked systems. Our Phase I technical objectives are to research, implement, test, and demonstrate the core technologies needed to successfully complete the entire project.
