  3. Innovative methods for detecting and characterizing electrical grid topologies and induced electrical power transient events from lights

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: NGA191010

    STR is proposing to implement monitoring of power grid state via high-speed, wide-field optical photometry. We will design, test, and implement algorithms on commercially available hardware with the intent of deriving grid topology in addition to detecting, characterizing, and geolocating anomalous events. We will also evaluate fusing the photometry-derived data with other data sources available t ...

  5. ALARM: Adversarially-learned Labels using Activity and Reward Models

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: NGA191006

    Technological advances in navigation and positioning, along with expanding wireless infrastructure and remote sensing technologies, have resulted in an explosive growth of available trajectory data from a variety of moving objects, such as people, cars, ships, or animals. Traditional trajectory mining algorithms do not explain how and why the motion was generated, limiting their utility in GEOINT ...

  7. Monitoring and Inspecting Dirty Nukes Including Generating Heatmaps of Terrain (MIDNIGHT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0191010

    A successful weapon of mass destruction (WMD) terrorist attack against the United States would have a profound and potentially catastrophic impact on our nation. It is imperative to be able to quickly, efficiently, and effectively localize radiological threats in a wide array of unstructured environments to detect and deter such an event. In recent years, man-portable radiation detectors have beco ...

  8. Networked Aerial Vehicle for Automated Radiation Clearing (NAVARC)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0191010

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop the Networked Aerial Vehicle for Automated Radiation Clearing (NAVARC) to perform an autonomous search for radiological threats in a complex 3-D environment. The PSI-developed InstantEye unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) will navigate using a series of optimized waypoints to minimize the time required to fully search an area and inspect objects. Detecti ...

  10. GEOFF: Geo-location from Edges, Objects, Foundational data, and a Filter

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: NGA181007

    Ground vehicles with navigation capability (e.g., GPS) can index into foundation data (e.g., Google Maps) to gain situational awareness abouttheir surroundings. When GPS and RF navigation sources are degraded, maintaining situational awareness requires an alternative navigationsource. One alternative source is the foundation data itself. The data contain objects at known 3D locations, which projec ...
