  1. Program for Estimating Whale Migration Statistics

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 816F

    Toyon proposes to develop software that can process infrared video streams to automatically detect gray whale blows. Additionally, the software will count the number of blows and estimate the speed and the number of whales that are present. We will make use of a novel technique for whale blow detection that Toyon has demonstrated on infrared video of humpback whales. The approach makes use of b ...

  2. Automated Detection of Whale Blows in Infrared Video

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: 816F

    The gray whale migration generates many hours of video that must be examined carefully to identify passing whales and get an accurate count of their numbers. Unfortunately, humans lack the necessary attention span. To solve this problem, a detector will be developed that can process hours of video, detecting whale blows while minimizing false positives and negatives. With an accurate record of ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Efficient Digitization of Nuclear Fireball Film

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The objectives of the proposed work are to develop the technical feasibility and detailed requirements for new methods and technology to decrease, substantially, the cost and time required to digitize and store high-speed, high-resolution film without sacrificing the spatial and grayscale depth of the original film. The work will be aimed at improvements that would make it practical to digitize a ...

  6. Attention Guided Pattern and Geospatial Analysis System

    SBC: Fetch Technologies            Topic: N/A

    With the large amount of geospatially-referenced material available, an important problem for NIMA is how to organize and present that information to their customers. We propose to address this problem by building a geospatial catalog system that will notjust tell you which products are available, but also allow the user to see the actual products and the relationship to other products. This wil ...

  7. 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 ...

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

    Not Available This innovative concept will develop a model for determining the fraction of neutral outgassed or vented molecules that leave a spacecraft, are then ionized by solar photons, and then return and deposit on spacecraft charged surfaces. Electrostatic Retur

  9. High Repetition Rate Microwave Modulation

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Several important emerging applications require efficient, high-speed high-duty-cycle, amplitude modulation of high levels of microwave power, with low cost and small size-and-weight. The modulation frequency and average power required for these applications are far beyond the capabilities of existing technology. MRC proposes to research and develop two alternative methods of achieving square-wa ...

  10. Multi-level Frame Technology for Digital Elevation Data Generation

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "The National Imagery and Mapping Agency is seeking new and innovative technology for generating Digital Terrain Elevation Data Level 2 (DTED-2) for territories above 60 degrees N. Important criteria include vertical accuracy of 16 m and horizontal accuracyof 20 m, and identification and selection of available cost effective imagery sources that will require a minimal number of ground control poin ...
