  1. Learning traffic camera locations using vehicle re-identification

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA201005

    In its effort to provide necessary intelligence and analysis, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) utilizes extensive traffic camera systems. However, the large amount of data overwhelms both analysts and existing processing methods. In order to provide a better understanding and reduce the search space for common problems such as target tracking, it is necessary to extract the camera ...

  5. Radioactive Anomaly Detection and Identification Algorithm Suite (RADIAS) for Enhanced Radiological Search

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: NGA192002

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop an advanced machine learning (ML) algorithm to detect threat-based anomalies in gamma-ray spectra in real-time. If a network of distributed R/N sensors is employed, the algorithms will also be capable of tracking such anomalies through the network. The Radiation Anomaly Detector (RAD) will be packaged with PSI’s award winning Poisson Clutter Spli ...
