  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. Venus Imaging Camera

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: S4

    The ability to image in harsh environments such as Venus is of interest and use including for missions to the surface of Venus. Today overwhelmingly almost all video cameras are based on silicon charge coupled devices (CCDs); however CCDs are not suited for and not capable of functioning at high/extreme temperature environments such as surface and atmosphere of Venus. Vidicons and similar types of ...

  4. Deep Learning Based Real-Time Engine Prognostics and Health Management (DL-RTEPHM)

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S5

    Testing and verifying rocket engines requires the careful placement, calibration, and analysis of dozens of sensors to measure important system characteristics such as temperature, density, flow, vibration, etc.Due to the volume and complexity of the raw outputs of these sensors, most are not monitored live and require extensive amounts of time from engineers to analyze and verify tests in an offl ...

  5. Bendable Electrodynamic Dust Shields

    SBC: Hedgefog Research Inc.            Topic: Z13

    Hedgefog Research Inc. (HFR) proposes to develop new, thin-film, Bendable Electrodynamic Dust Shields (BEDS) that allow for continuous dynamic bending over compound curvatures such as the joint regions of a spacesuit, e.g., ankles, knees, elbows, etc. The BEDS technology is based on a combination of customized rigid and bendable plastic sheet forms with thin film electrode arrays fabricated from c ...

  10. Absolute Navigation for Ground Vehicles for Planetary Exploration

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: S3

    The Problem: There is no GPS (absolute positioning) on Mars ndash; nor on any other extraterrestrial body of scientific interest. All existing navigation solutions for rover/robotic platforms provide only relative navigation capabilities, which drift off over time and are not sufficiently accurate for many scientific missions of interest.nbsp; Future autonomous robotics missions will require an ab ...
