  1. 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 ...

  2. Advanced Signal Processing for Non-Literal Exploitation of Spectral Imagery

    SBC: APPLIED SIGNAL & IMAGE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: NGA04001

    To maximize the utility of spectral imagery sensors it is essential that processing techniques for data from these sensors are highly automated, provide high probability of target detection with low false alarm rates, and offer a reliable confidence assessment capability. The detection and false alarm probabilities required for a hyperspectral sensor to be a useful intelligence asset varies based ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Computational Hypothesis Space for Integration of Geospatial Information

    SBC: COMPUSENSOR TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to develop an attention-guided pattern and geospatial analysis system for imagery exploitation. This new technology will be based on the dynamic receptive field model of visual attention that has emerged from neuroscienceresearch. The attention system holds the key to the success of the vision systems of many higher form animals struggling to survive: They see what they ...

  7. SAR Tomography for Target/Feature Detection in Foliated Regions

    SBC: Epic Sales, Inc. Dba Epic Systems            Topic: N/A

    SAR target/feature detection can be divided into to separate aspects: 1) achieving sufficient energy on target for detection; and 2) discriminating the target from the clutter. Let's assume that there is sufficient target return to overcome the thermalnoise floor. Then target detection is solely dependent upon separating the target from the forest clutter. VSAR offers significant benefits for ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. N/A

    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
