  1. Heterogeneous Data Discovery Using Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: KickView Corporation            Topic: AF16AT12

    Improving feature extraction, event detection, and target classification in multi-sensor systems requires new mathematical methods and processing techniques. In addition, previous research and experience suggests that leveraging sensor data that has not experienced significant dimensionality reduction can preserve subtle features when processed jointly with other relevant data. However, traditiona ...

  2. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: Analysis and Applications Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the visible to mid-wave IR. EO/IR sensors have been very successful for terrain imaging from subsonic aircraft and from satellites. Imaging using these platforms has been studied extensively. EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the v ...

  4. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    Automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated into a number of applications. Although there are also many potential applications for automatic speaker identification (SID), SID accuracy rates are generally not sufficient for widespread use in practical applications. For high accuracy ASR and SID, the microphone must be located near the talk ...

  5. ROBUST MOVING TARGET HANDOFF IN GPS-DENIED ENVIRONMENTS

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT34

    Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) are increasingly seen as a cornerstone in developing the future Defense infrastructure and it is critical that they collaborate efficiently and execute complex missions in denied environments. Although great progress has been made in GPS-denied navigation, the target handoff problem in GPS-denied environments has not been extensively studied. In this problem, a trac ...
