The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Geo-registration of Aerial Imagery Using 3-D Volumetric Models

    SBC: VISION SYSTEMS INC            Topic: NGA11-001

    With the advancement of aerial imaging sensors, high quality data equipped with partial sensor calibration models is available. There is a recent research activity in computer vision community that aims to reconstruct 3-d structure of the observed scenes relying on the content of the imagery in fully automated ways. However the research has not matured into robust systems ready for operational set ...

  2. IMAGINE: Imagery Management through Agile, Geo-Interactive, Natural Embodiment

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: NGA11-002

    Overhead imagery analysts employ computer-based software as Electronic Light Tables (ELTs), to perform detailed analysis of aerial images in search of elements of interest. Conventional display design for ELT software requires analysts to take their eyes away from the image they are analyzing to perform routine functions. This interaction overhead typically leads to losses in visual momentum and i ...

  4. Fully Automated Dense 3D Modeling, Geo-Registration and Error Modeling

    SBC: Toyon Research Corp            Topic: NGA11-001

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes research and development of advanced algorithms and efficient software for performing high-resolution georegistered 3D reconstruction with associated error models. The technology will be capable of processing sequences of 2D images to automatically generate and georegister 3D models, with no user intervention required. Rapid processing will be achieved by levera ...

  5. Novel Methods of Interacting with Overhead Imagery for Broard-Area Search

    SBC: Hadron Industries            Topic: NGA11-002

    We will develop a novel system for interacting with overhead imagery that allows image analysts to use more of their bodies, and to maintain eye contact, during image manipulation and analysis. We will build upon an existing spatially-aware, embodied human-computer interface systemOblong Industries"G-Speakintegrating it with current IMINT tools. G-Speak is the state-of-the-art platform on whi ...

  7. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers for Ground-Users

    SBC: Mayflower Communications Company, Inc.            Topic: NGA07-001

    The overall objective of the HSGR Program is to develop a high sensitivity military GPS receiver to provide reliable GPS navigation, under weak GPS signal conditions, to ground based military GPS users. Mayflower’s approach to meet this HSGR program objective is to design, develop and incorporate “high-sensitivity” signal processing enhancements (namely, Vector Tracking (VT) and Multi-bit GP ...

  8. Alternative PNT Augmentations for Handhelds

    SBC: Yotta Navigation Corporation            Topic: NGA07-002

    During Phase I, Yotta Navigation developed a proof-of-concept version of the MOUTman, envisioned to be a rugged, secure, high-precision, handheld real-time navigation system suitable for military operations. This system took advantage of Yotta Navigation expertise in several areas: inertial and GPS-assisted navigation, user interface design, efficient integration of components from mainstream supp ...

  9. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers for Ground-Users

    SBC: MAYFLOWER COMMUNICATIONS CO., INC.            Topic: NGA07-001

    This proposal addresses the NGA SBIR program objective to develop and demonstrate GPS receiver improvements for ground users to provide significant “high-sensitivity” signal tracking performance over conventional military GPS receivers. The proposed system consists of (i) the Mayflower “NavAssure” SAASM GPS receiver; and (ii) receiver software signal processing enhancements, in order to m ...

  10. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers

    SBC: NAVSYS CORP.            Topic: NGA07-001

    Many military users need to operate in areas where GPS signal reception is impeded by building walls, dense foliage and urban canyon. Current military GPS receivers do not operate robustly in these environments which include multipath and varying signal levels caused by partial blockage/non-penetration of signals through different materials. Some vendors in the commercial sector, however, have b ...
