  1. Advanced Geospatial Computing

    SBC: REPLICUS SOFTWARE CORP.            Topic: NGA05001

    Our primary concept is a distributed storage system capable of supporting organizations which scale from the small to the very largest. The goal is to build a distributed self-configuring; self-managing and self-healing file storage system which exhibits modular upgradeability and dynamic adaptation to an organization's evolving needs. Our strategy to do this is to exploit a unique scientifically ...

  2. Advanced Geospatial Computing

    SBC: TRUSTWORTHY SOFTWARE CORP.            Topic: NGA05001

    This proposal outlines the scope and prospective directions of research into the architecture, technology, methods and algorithms necessary for the building of the practically usable distributed system for dissemination, high-volume transportation, storage and management of large data files in heterogeneous world-wide networks, such as needed by the advanced geospatial computing. The specific topi ...

  3. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) and Michigan Technological University (MTU) propose a Phase I STTR effort to develop a learning algorithm which exploits the spatio-spectral characteristics inherent within IR imagery and motion imagery.Our archive of modelled and labeled data sets will allow our team to thoroughly capture the variable elements that will drive machine learning performance.The overall ...

  4. Alternative PNT Augmentations for Handhelds

    SBC: YOTTA NAVIGATION CORPORATION            Topic: NGA07002

    Yotta Navigation proposes to develop the MOUTman, a rugged, handheld, secure, high-precision real-time navigation system suitable for military operations. This system will take advantage of Yotta's existing expertise in several areas: inertial and differential GPS-assisted navigation, user interface design, efficient integration of components from mainstream suppliers, and our deep knowledge of r ...

  5. An Advanced Algorithm for Radar Derived Bathymetry

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: 913N

    NOAA can reduce costs and improve efficiency by remotely monitoring harbors, navigation channels, and coastlines for bathymetric changes. This will aid NOAA in its mission to maintain waterways and assure maritime safety. This remote sensing can be accomplished by implementing a new radar derived bathymetry capability. Areté Associates proposes to demonstrate an advanced algorithm to derive ba ...

  6. Attention Guided Pattern and Geospatial Analysis System

    SBC: Fetch Technologies            Topic: N/A

    With the large amount of geospatially-referenced material available, an important problem for NIMA is how to organize and present that information to their customers. We propose to address this problem by building a geospatial catalog system that will notjust tell you which products are available, but also allow the user to see the actual products and the relationship to other products. This wil ...

  7. Automated Analysis of Fisheries Information from Digital Stills

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 82

    Toyon proposes development of a system which performs automated analysis of images for fish population monitoring and fishing regulation enforcement applications. The proposed system is capable of processing images collected from aircraft, including unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as images collected using boat-mounted or handheld cameras used to observe fish catches landed on the decks of vess ...

  8. Automated Assessment of Urban Environment Degradation for Disaster Relief andReconstruction

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181004

    Toyon Research Corp. proposes development of a system that automates disaster assessment based on fusion of overhead and ground-basedimages, video, and other data. In Phase I, we will investigate various possible data sources and the benefits of fusing the data in automatedanalysis. We will select and curate data for processing in a Phase I feasibility study. Damage assessment will be performed in ...

  9. Automated Detection of Whale Blows in Infrared Video

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: 816F

    The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video, detecting whale blows while minimizing false positives and negatives. With an accurate record of ...

  10. Automated Image Analysis for Fisheries Applications

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 921F

    We propose to develop software that is capable of automatically classifying and measuring the length of fish observed in video. We will focus initially on underwater video, but much of the software will also be applicable to fish onboard commercial fishing vessels as well. Our approach is to first segment fish based on their motion in the water. For this purpose, we will make use of existing au ...
