  1. Long-term Patterns of Life from Sporadic Observations

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: NGA192005

    This SBIR Phase-I project will develop novel approaches for unsupervised life-long learning architecture to extract long-term patterns of life from sporadic observations. The proposed architecture models longterm dependencies, learns associations between features from sensory observations and the contexts in which these features occur, identifies sudden changes in the patterns for anomaly detecti ...

  2. GLANCE: Graph Learned Anomalies in Changing Environments

    SBC: Expedition Technology, Inc.            Topic: NGA192005

    While Wide Area Motion Imagery (WAMI) activity analysis has considerably advanced for continuous tracking—particular through adoption of improved machine learning (ML) methods, less research has been applied to using similar quality image sequences over sporadic intervals to characterize site activity. While pure still-image remote sensing collection can characterize basic change detection usin ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  5. Non-Invasive Monitoring of Changes in Intracranial Pressure Due to Infections in the Central Nervous System

    SBC: Fenix Research Corporation            Topic: CBD192005

    Infections of the central nervous system (CNS) are associated with brain swelling and increased cerebral blood volume, as well as focal cerebral perfusion deficits, variable levels of cerebral blood flow and cerebral vasculitis. The net result is increased intracranial pressure (ICP) along with significant risk of brain tissue herniation and ischemic syndromes. ICP monitoring is critical in the ma ...

  6. Development of a Non-invasive Negative Ophthalmodynamometer Capable of Measuring Intracranial Pressure in Humans

    SBC: Equinox Ophthalmic, Inc.            Topic: CBD192005

    Measurement of intracranial pressure (ICP) is essential in the diagnosis and management of numerous life threatening conditions. All current methods used clinically to measure ICP are invasive and require direct access to the cerebrospinal fluid giving them a significant side effect profile. The ability to measure ICP non-invasively would be a major milestone for patients. Spontaneous venous pulsa ...

  7. Development of Small Molecule Therapeutics for Emerging Viral Agents

    SBC: Arisan Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: CBD192006

    Arenaviruses comprise a diverse group of Old (Africa) and New World (Americas) species. Several species are associated with hemorrhagic fever (HF) with case-fatality rates as high as 30%. Arenaviruses infection typically occurs via the mucosal route through contact with excretions of an infected rodents although direct human-to-human transmission may occur in clinical settings. Lassa arenavirus en ...

  8. Development of Small Molecule Therapeutics for Emerging Viral Agents

    SBC: Arisan Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: CBD192006

    Ebolavirus species including Zaire (EBOV), Sudan (SUDV) and Bundibugyo (BDBV) are responsible for severe hemorrhagic fever outbreaks with high case fatalities in Africa. Weaponized pathogens present an additional threat to the health protection of the warfighter and first-generation prophylactic and therapeutic medical countermeasures (MCMs) may prove inadequate in biodefense settings. Ebolaviruse ...

  9. Optimized Platforms for Proper Glycosylation and Sialylation of Recombinant Human Butyrylcholinesterase (rBChE)

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: CBD192007

    The threat of organophosphate (OP) chemical warfare agents (CWA) to United States military personnel is a persistent problem due to the relative ease of manufacturing chemical threats compared to nuclear and biological agents. Human butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) has been identified as a probable bio-scavenger of OP CWAs that could be used to protect individuals that could be exposed to OP CWAs. The ...

  10. Optimized Platforms for Proper Glycosylation and Sialylation of Recombinant Human Butyrylcholinesterase (rBChE)

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: CBD192007

    Organophosphorus (OP) toxins and chemical warfare agents (CWA) are active nerve agents posing significant hazard for both soldiers and civilians. Butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) is a safe and effective bioscavenger that detoxifies OP and CWAs when injected either prophylactically or post-exposure; but a major technical problem has been producing a recombinant form of BChE with acceptable properties f ...
