  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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Extended Release of Pyridostigmine Bromide for Effectively Combating Nerve Agent Exposure

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: CBD181004

    Chemical warfare agents such as the lethal nerve agent soman are a major source of risk to military personnel. Currently, pyridostigmine bromide (PB) is the only FDA-approved pretreatment to counteract the effects of soman. The rationale behind PB administration is that it acts as a “temporary” inhibitor of AChE. This precludes nerve agents from irreversible inactivation of AChE, thereby mitig ...

  4. Sequential Phase II Proposal for Smartphone Application for Mask Sizing and Projecting Quantitative Fit

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: CBD181006

    To address the Chemical and Biological Defense (CBD) need for a field-portable mass spectrometer for small molecule drugs in clinical samples, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new FiEldable DRug Mass Analysis (FERMA) system based on a combination of portable mass spectrometry technology with laser desorption/ionization for use with aqueous clinical samples. The FERMA system ...

  5. Field-Usable Designer Drug Analyzer

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: CBD181006

    While this solicitation describes the need for better sampling methods and more rugged mass spectrometers to meet this DoD requirement, the topic author agreed to consider our alternative approach, which employs existing DoD Raman spectrometers. The goal of this proposed project (through Phase III) is to develop a Field-Usable Designer Drug Analyzer capable of identifying and quantifying drugs in ...

  6. Faster Optical Modem for Underwater Data Acquisition

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: NGA182001

    SA Photonics’ Optical Navigation and Ranging (ONAR) system is an interrogative system that operate underwater in wavelength range of blue/green (450-540 nm) and enables navigational correction to IMU based dead reckoning navigation. The location based beacons are battery operated and have operational life span of over one year. The system is designed to operate in on demand burst mode so that no ...

  7. Faster Optical Modem for Underwater Data Acquisition

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: NGA182001

    To address NGA’s requirements, Sonalysts’ team of world-class experts in underwater optical communication proposes development and implementation of the Precision Optical Navigation Transceiver for Undersea Systems (PONTUS). PONTUS will transfer navigation information from an Underwater Navigation Beacon (UNB) to an Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) in an electromagnetic-spectrum-denied (e.g., G ...

  8. A Multi-Branch Network for Automated VNIIRS Assessment of Motion Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA191003

    Due to the lack of consistency in existing automated methods for assigning VNIIRS levels to motion imagery, and the overwhelming human resources required to manually assign levels, a new method of automated/semi-automated VNIIRS assessment is needed. In recent years, advancements in deep learning have provided solutions to previously intractable computer vision problems. In many cases, automated d ...

  9. Multi-hop processing for OTHR range extension

    SBC: Decibel Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA191011

    The development of sophisticated anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) capabilities by our adversaries requires us to develop long range capabilities to mitigate this A2/AD threat. Extending the range of Over The Horizon Radars beyond their conventional single hop operating mode will potentially provide coverage out to 10000 km and beyond. We propose combining existing state-of-the art HF radar ray prop ...

  10. Enhanced Canine Performance, Protection and Survivability

    SBC: Metro International Biotech, LLC            Topic: SOCOM172002

    Given the benefits of exercise on general health, orally active compounds that can mimic or potentiate the effects of exercise have been of keen interest as therapeutic and dietary ingredients. Our proposed approach for enhancement of USSOCOM Multi-Purpose Canine (MPC) endurance and sensory performance using an exercise mimetic is based on the observation that age-related decline of nicotinamide ...
