  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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  8. Handheld Liquid Particle Counter

    SBC: Hal Technology, LLC            Topic: DMEA182001

    The trend of microelectronic processing technology is for more advanced complex devices integrated in smaller size. Particles could become significantly more  prevalent as killer defects and have adverse effect on fabrication yield rate. Meanwhile, clean environment control requirements originally focused on particles in the air have been extended to encompass liquids that come into direct conta ...

  9. Laser Dithering Device for Handheld Liquid Particle Measurements

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: DMEA182001

    We propose a hand-held device that would be capable of measuring particles as small as 20 nm in liquid batches from semiconductor fabrication. The proposed system will overcome the complexities of existing in-line and batch sampling techniques and thus would reduce the operating time and cost of the fabrication process. The device will be small and easily portable and will not come in direct cont ...
