  1. Variational Object Recognition and Grouping Network

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: NGA181005

    To address the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) need for overhead imagery analysis algorithms that provide uncertaintymeasures for object recognition and aggregation, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (ISS) proposes to develop a new Variational Object Recognition andGrouping Network (VORGNet) system. It is based on the innovation of implementing a Bayesian convolutional neural network (CNN) ...

  2. Ultrafast Gas Curtain and Wire-Reinforced X-Ray Window Debris Shields

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop two components of a three-component, survivable debris shield for large area test exposures to cold (1-5keV) x-rays. These elements also have commercial potential in accelerators and in radiography. The elements are: an ultrafast gas curtain designed to be located close to the x-ray source to deflect plasma debris as well as ~um siz ...

  3. Passive multi-view, multi-channel detection of highly obscured targets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA04001

    The goal of this Phase I SBIR is to define a set of algorithms that will detect and characterize static man-made objects highly obscured by foliage within multi-view, multi-channel optical data collected passively from UAVs or other aerial platforms. The proposed algorithm stream will be constructed so as to comprehend and mitigate real-world interfering effects such as clouds, smoke and haze. Dur ...

  4. Non-Intrusive, Chemically-Specific Detection of Explosives

    SBC: SYAGEN TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    During the Phase I, a lightweight, multilayer coating will be deposited onto copper wire and the wire woven into a mesh. The coating provides a high level of EM shielding, including magnetic shielding, EMP shielding and powers line filtering. The woven mesh will form a flexible shield with similar properties. Draped over existing equipment or used to line the walls, it will provide temporary and ...

  5. Neurobiologically-based System for Object Segmentation and Recognition

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This phase I project will create, for the first time, a dynamic system, based on neurophysiology of the brain, to perfrom image segmentation using high level info. In computer vision, pattern recognition is frequently hampered by poor image segmentation. Segmentation algorithms have not been able to segment an image as a human would, instead they form regions based on mathematically defined crit ...

  6. Neurobiological Approach to Reliable Feature Searching & Change Analysis in Imagery

    SBC: Information Systems Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Laser sources are required to achieve many National Defense requirements for range finders, illuminators, mid-IR sources for countermeasures (IRCM), and solid state optical radars for range gated imaging, autonomous piloting, targeting and guidance. Significant advancements have been made over the last few years in laser capability such as wavelength coverage and output power, but t ...

  10. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA172002

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to research and develop algorithms for low-shot object detection, adapting popular techniques to address the complexities inherent in ATR for remote sensing. Traditional object detection algorithms rely on large corpora of data which may not be available for more exotic targets (such as foreign military assets), and therefore, traditional Convolutional Neural Ne ...
