  1. Advanced Tracking Techniques for FOPEN GMTI Radars

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The utility of continuously tracking vehicles in a battlefield has been demonstrated during the Gulf War and other recent conflicts. However, the ability to achieve reliable continuous tracking in many environments will require the use of FOPEN radar andefficient use of sensor resources. In this effort we extend current research to include heterogeneous terrain and apply this model to simulations. ...

  2. Video Analysis for Nighttime Surveillance and Situational Awareness

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Interpretation of video imagery is the quintessential goal of computer vision. The ability to group moving pixels into regions and then associate semantic labels with those regions has long been studied by the vision community. Only recently have thecomponent technologies matured sufficiently to make this goal attainable for well-defined scenarios. We propose a system for semantic interpretation o ...

  3. Real-time Adaptive Classification Environment using Rules (RACER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) algorithms must be able to identify the conditions under which they are operating and tune their parameters accordingly to ensure robust accuracy and low false-alarm rate. For example, the signature of a target imagedunder ideal weather conditions (overcast skies) is fundamentally different from the signature of a target imaged when raining. Therefore, a single A ...

  4. New SVM Hierarchical Classifier Fusion

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal is aimed at the investigation, development and implementation of a hierarchical multi-class target classification system suitable for dynamically changing conditions in the battle field. New support vector representation and discriminationmachine (SVRDM) classifiers are proposed. Each classifier is a separate classifier that distinguishes one class from all of the rest. This architec ...

  5. Dynamic Perimeter Surveillance by Swarms of Small Robotic Vehicles

    SBC: NEKTON RESEARCH LLC            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the proposed effort is the development and demonstration of an underwater plume monitoring tool. We propose to do this using a team of small underwater vehicles and an algorithm borrowed from the image processing literature. This system isexpected to provide vital support in three critical areas: drinking water supply surveillance, harmful algae blooms monitoring, and diver-based mi ...

  6. A Multiband Wide Area Fluorescence Detection System

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Nomadics has been working with landmine detection technologies since 1998. During that time we have established the extreme sensitivity of an amplifying fluorescent polymer (AFP) that has been employed in the direct detection of ultratrace quantities ofchemical signature compounds of explosives and effective methods of fluorescence measurement including standoff detection. These methods have the ...

  7. Detection of Infectious Bacteria in Water

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase II proposal, Nomadics in a collaborative effort with the Keck Graduate Institute proposes to develop assays and devices based on amplifying fluorescent polymer (AFP) technology for the rapid identification of biological warfare agents inwater. The rapid, sensitive detection and identification of biological agents in water will have a dramatic impact on the adoption of intervention s ...

  8. Inducible Surface Hydrophobicity of Microbial Consortia for Biofilm Remediation

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Microbial degradation is an effective method of decontaminating pools of free-phase pollutants, such as chlorinated solvents and explosives, in groundwater. The formation of microbial consortia capable of residing on free-phase contaminants has been shownrecently by the proposer. The population obtained in a continuous selection process exhibited increased surface hydrophobicity, considered to b ...

  9. ADVANCED DIRECT METHANOL FUEL CELLS WITH ELECTRON BEAM-PROCESSED POLYPHOSPHAZENEMEMBRANES

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells are candidates to fill the Army's need for high-energy lightweight power sources. Methanol is a more convenient fuel source than gaseous hydrogen, but requires advanced membrane materials and alternativeprocessing. SRL with partners Tulane University and Northeastern University has demonstrated Electron-Beam-crosslinked polyphosphazene membranes with ...

  10. Advanced Computational Algorithms for Nonlinear Filtering for Real Time Environment

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The techniques of linear filtering have contributed tremendously in missile guidance and modern radar technology. However, they can only serve as a first order approximation to the infinite-dimensional nonlinear filtering problem. Solutions to theseproblems are known in theory, and with the explosive growth of high performance computing, they have also increasingly become available in terms of ...
