  1. Geo-registration of Aerial Imagery Using 3-D Volumetric Models

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: NGA11001

    With the advancement of aerial imaging sensors, high quality data equipped with partial sensor calibration models is available. There is a recent research activity in computer vision community that aims to reconstruct 3-d structure of the observed scenes relying on the content of the imagery in fully automated ways. However the research has not matured into robust systems ready for operational set ...

  3. DGPS-Based Trilateration Positioning Receiver

    SBC: Swaszek Peter            Topic: 07FH1

    Positioning and navigation have become a mainstay of everyday life in the U.S.; applications of interest include navigation of vehicles of all kinds, infrastructure mapping, and safety of life systems. Many of these recent applications have become possible through the GPS. With the recognized vulnerabilities of GPS, it is evident that equivalent backup systems must be developed. One possible so ...

  4. Phase II: EcoSod An Alternative Native Sod Solution for Highway Construction

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Surface Transportation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act requires the use of native grasses and wildflowers within highway corridors. A major problem for the revegetation industry has been the ability to predictably establish native vegetation from seed. The production of native sods would allow for the most sensitive period of establishment-germination and initial seedling growth-to be ...

  5. EcoSod: An Alternative Native Sod Solution for Highway Construction Projects

    SBC: Bitterroot Restoration Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Surface Transporation and Uniform Relocation Assistance Act (STURAA) requires the use of native grasses and wildflowers within highway corridors. A major problem for the revegetation industry has been the ability to predictably establish native vegetation from seed. The production of native sods would allow for the most sensitive period of establishment-germination and initial seedling growt ...

  6. Neurophysiological Based Methods of Guided Image Search

    SBC: Veridical Research and Design Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Complex analysis of intelligence imagery is crucial to the missions of intelligence organizations, yet remains constrained by labor-intensive, time-consuming visual search of large volumes of imagery. Many algorithms have been developed to automaticallyidentify regions of interest in large, complex sets of imagery, yet the utility of such algorithms is limited by the fact that human analysts dete ...

  7. Electrical Ground Loops in Heavy Trucks

    SBC: Vehicle Enhancement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    The number of electrical/electronic devices in heavy-duty vehicles are increasing rapidly. Many of these devices require a "clean" source of power, which may theoretically be supplied by a separate ground. Currently, tractors operate on one of three grounding methods, the frame ground being the most common. However, the introduction of a separate ground into the trailer could lead to serious gr ...

  8. LOW COST SMART MAGNETOMETER FOR TRAIN DETECTION/MONITORING

    SBC: KVH INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TRAIN DETECTION SCHEMES RELY LARGELY ON A LOW RESISTANCE THROUGH THE TRAIN'S WHEELS TO PERTURBATE A STABLE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT. WHILE ELEGANT IN PRINCIPLE, THE DESIGN IS PLAGUED BY OXIDE FILMS AND MATERIAL BUILDUP ON THE RAIL, SNEAK PATHS THROUGH THE BALLAST AND OTHER UNCONTROLLABLE VARIABLES. KVH INDUSTRIES PROPOSES TO DESIGN AND DELIVER A "SMART MAGNETOMETER"-BASED SENSOR PACKAGE WHICH WI ...
