  1. Advanced Signal Processing for Non-Literal Exploitation of Spectral Imagery

    SBC: APPLIED SIGNAL & IMAGE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: NGA04001

    To maximize the utility of spectral imagery sensors it is essential that processing techniques for data from these sensors are highly automated, provide high probability of target detection with low false alarm rates, and offer a reliable confidence assessment capability. The detection and false alarm probabilities required for a hyperspectral sensor to be a useful intelligence asset varies based ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Climate Impact Visualization Tools Using Virtual 3D City for Community Based Planning and Outreach

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: 931RC

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes an innovative visualization tool that transforms online GIS mappers into a climate impact assessment and planning tool that allows planners to visualize the impact of storm surges with sea level rise and coastal erosion using a 3D virtual city. The goal is to assist planners and emergency services to adapt to climate change at three tiers: i) Tier 3 (Long-te ...

  5. Computational Hypothesis Space for Integration of Geospatial Information

    SBC: COMPUSENSOR TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to develop an attention-guided pattern and geospatial analysis system for imagery exploitation. This new technology will be based on the dynamic receptive field model of visual attention that has emerged from neuroscienceresearch. The attention system holds the key to the success of the vision systems of many higher form animals struggling to survive: They see what they ...

  6. Development of Sustainable, Multi-Seasonal, Multi-Species, Marine Algal Aquaculture in Coastal Maine

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 81

    This Phase I proposal determines the feasibility of growing multiple species of macroalgae in commercial marine aquafarm environments. Marine aquaculture is a logical outgrowth of successful wild harvest seaweed businesses over the last several years. Developing a marine aquaculture prototype will foster the science of sea farming. Extending growing seasons for multi-species would provide year ...

  7. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  8. DNC-GD: Deep Neural Network Compression for Geospatial Data

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: NGA181009

    Following technology advances in high-performance computation systems and fast growth of data acquisition, a technical breakthroughnamed Deep Learning made remarkable success in many research areas and applications. Nevertheless, the progress of hardwaredevelopment still falls far behind the upscaling of deep neural network (DNN) models at the software level. NGA seeks to apply neuralnetwork minia ...

  9. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  10. Extraction of Bioproducts from Algae in Water using Cavitating Jets

    SBC: DYNAFLOW, INC            Topic: 812SG

    One of the most promising biomass sources for fuels and other feedstocks is photosynthetic algae. Algae can produce lipids, proteins, and other compounds, and can be grown in salt water. Current production practices rely on expensive means of harvesting, concentrating, and extracting the algae. This makes the “bio-crude” produced by algae more expensive than petroleum. Recovering the cellular ...
