  1. Target Tracking via Deep Learning

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: AF17AT027

    To address the challenge of long-term tracking, through extended occlusions and significant appearance changes, we propose to continue developing DC-CAT, a Deep Convolutional neural network (CNN) based Confuser-Aware high value target (HVT) Tracker.The DC-CAT system combines a state-of-the-art CNN-based adaptive HVT tracker with a CNN-based pre-trained generic target detector, in a deep-feature-ai ...

  2. Smart Baseplate for Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DLA18A001

    Additive manufacturing (AM) has rapidly evolved into a valuable technique for making parts which, at times, cannot be fabricated through conventional machining methods.One challenge in the area of AM is the lack of real-time feedback on the fabrication process and the quality of the part being made.This is especially critical given the relatively long periods of time that complex parts can require ...

  3. Diamond Cathode Coating for Spacecraft Charge Mitigation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF18AT011

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes the development of a composite laminate cathode coating based largely on consumer off the shelf (COTS) industrial materials functionalized to possess a low work function, negative electron affinity surface. The cathode coating is applicable to any surface of a spacecraft, regardless of shape or material, and allows passive one wire operation for spacecraft cha ...

  5. Closed-Loop Extracranial Activation using Reinforcement-learning (CLEAR)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT002

    Increased workloads and operational pressures can degrade human analysts cognitive performance, jeopardizing their ability to safely and effectively carry out mission-critical tasks. To avoid overload and maximize the potential of human operators, a method for conducting real-time evaluation of cognitive state, combined with means to dynamically enhance performance, is required. Novel technologies ...

  9. Application of Hierarchical Memory Models to Automatic Target Recognition Modeling and Simulation

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF18AT014

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes a visual processing system for automated target recognition. Inspired by biological vision systems and hierarchical memory models, the proposed system is capable of learning hierarchical invariant features from unlabeled data that are independent of object labels. The model exploits these learned features to create hierarchical representations of target memories ...
