  1. NGAflix: a cloud-based adaptive bitrate video processing and distribution system

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA181002

    The large volume of full motion video from unmanned aerial vehicles, along with other data from various sensors creates resource andengineering challenges in managing, processing and distributing that data. Law enforcement and intelligence work require videos in locationsfar from where they were recorded, and need multiple sensor streams to be synchronized for search, filtering, and transformation ...

  2. Low-Shot Alternate Viewpoint Analogies

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA181008

    Overhead imagery analysts spend their time scouring aerial and satellite imagery looking for objects based on example images. Collectingexample imagery of our adversaries newest military hardware is often challenging. The only examples we have may be from open sourceintelligence at air shows or military parades or from limited clandestine collections. Often, only a small set of ground-based imager ...

  3. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  4. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  5. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  6. Satellite Low-Shot Augmented Object Detection (SALSA)

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: NGA172002

    The recent widespread use of overhead sensors, and their ability to provide continuous streams of imagery for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions, has generated a critical need for high-fidelity, automated object detection systems. For intelligence analysts, searching large volumes of imagery with vast spatial and temporal extent can be extremely time consuming and tedious ...

  7. Portable Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA08004

    Analysis of nuclear material samples in the field has many advantages over laboratory analysis. Laboratory analyses can be slow, involve increased expense, lead to additional waste generation and disposal problems, and may introduce errors due to sample degradation or mishandling. In situ analysis mitigates all of these problems. The specific aim of this project is the development of a truly por ...

  8. Agent Defeat using a DWA Accelerator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08008

    A new type of compact induction accelerator currently under development at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) promises to increase the average accelerating gradient by at least an order of magnitude over that of existing induction machines. The machine is based on the use of high gradient vacuum insulators and advanced dielectric materials and switches. The system, called the Diel ...

  9. Engineering Models for Damage to Structural Components Subjected to Internal Blast Loading

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08006

    Predicting the response of building components to internal detonations is more complex than the corresponding task for external loads because of the more complex loading waveforms which include multiple reflections in the shock phase followed by a long duration pseudostatic loading that depends upon room venting. Add the possibility of additional impulsive loading from primary debris. We propose t ...
