  1. Algorithms for Look-down Infrared Target Exploitation

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA18A001

    The multidisciplinary area of GEOINT is changing and becoming more complex. A major driver of innovation in GEOINT collection and processing is artificial intelligence (AI). AI is being leveraged to help accomplish spatial analysis, change detection, and image or video triage tasks where filtering objects of interest from large volumes of data is critical. NGA is confronting the changing GEOINT l ...

  2. Pathogen Classification Tool (PACT)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST18C002

    Stottler Henke proposes PACT to address the threat posed by unknown/novel bacteria. Stottler Henke’s solution leverages AI/ML technologies to assess the pathogenic potential of unknown/novel bacteria for DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office. Threat assessment is inferred from phenotype as characterized by a series of assays developed by Harvard University as part of DARPA’s Friend or Foe p ...

  3. Visual Relative Navigation

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C006

    As unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) become more prevalent there is an increasing desire to automate UAS navigation and control. To enable future UASs to perform a wider variety of missions, they must be able to complete autonomous relative navigation to accomplish missions. Current technologies rely heavily on GPS measurements, which are undesirable since GPS signals may be unavailable in many DoD ...

  4. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cell Conversion and Differentiation

    SBC: IREPROGRAM, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  5. A High-Level Operator Abstraction for GPU Graph Analytics

    SBC: Royal Caliber            Topic: ST13B004

    We are proposing a new software framework for analyzing very large graphs using massively parallel processors (GPUs). This framework will be commercialized on a cloud platform that gives users immediate access to highly advanced big-data analytics through a user-friendly web interface, as well as an HTTP API for easy integration. The platform can be deployed on a private cloud if desired. The sy ...

  7. Recovery of Rhenium from Superalloy Scrap

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC            Topic: OSD12T04

    Due to the limited amount of rhenium present in the earths crust (approximately 1-2 part per billion) there is a significant benefit to be realized in recovering for reuse the rhenium from scrap material, spent catalysts, or end-of-life superalloys. Rhenium is found in molybdenum-copper porphyry deposits. If rhenium is present in ore that is processed, it will show up in the resulting molybdenum ...

  8. Heterogeneous Analysis of Group Interactions and Dynamics (HAGID) for Social Media Forecasting

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: ST12B002

    This proposal is to extend into Phase II our development of a new system for Recognition of Communities and Heterogeneous Analysis of Group Interactions and Dynamics (RC-HAGID) for Social Media Forecasting. Social media enables groups, including terroris

  9. Expendable Local Area Sensors in a Tactically Interconnected Cluster (ELASTIC)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST051009

    Obtaining situational awareness in tactical operations often involves high risk to personnel and/or equipment. The ELASTIC concept is to overcome this problem through the use of very low-cost, yet sophisticated, rapidly-deployable imaging sensors. Features of our proposed concept include use of highly portable equipment and support of a range of operational scenarios. Both of these features are ma ...

  10. High Speed Room Temperature IR Camera Based on Plasmon Physics

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: ST051005

    It is desirable to make focal plane arrays (or imaging arrays) with reduced pitch; doing so enables smaller, cheaper and lighter camera systems that provide the same image resolution. Currently, the lower limit on pitch is set by electron/hole diffusion and light diffraction that results in crosstalk between neighboring pixels. Since electron hole pairs generated outside the depletion layer can ...
