  1. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA172002

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop algorithms that improve the precision and recall of neural networks for low-shot object classification and detection. Our approach is based upon developing a descriptive multi-domain feature representation of the low-shot target as well as the surrounding context. A multi-branch neural network merges the various domains of information to perform accur ...

  2. Generalized Change Detection to Cue Regions of Interest

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181006

    Toyon proposes to research and develop algorithms for generalized salient change detection, and to incorporate these algorithms into software tools implemented on the cloud. Our approach leverages the two most promising methods from Phase I, both based on supervised learning. The first method is the entropy-based feature vector and corresponding neural network, which we will apply at a coarse sear ...

  3. Daytime Marker

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A09AT007

    Pranalytica will develop and provide an integrated target marker that includes marking capabilities at NIR wavelengths and out-of-band MWIR wavelengths, making it backward compatible with existing earlier generation imagers as well as with the newer imagers that provide critical advantage to warfighters by operating at wavelengths where the adversary is not likely to have access to appropriate ima ...

  4. Daytime Marker

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: SOCOM173001

    There exists a challenge in observing laser designated targets in full daylight conditions for currently fielded near-infrared (NIR) laser designators. The visibility difficulty arises primarily from the significant background signal produced by the sun, which closely mimics the spectral signature of a blackbody . By extending the wavelength region in which laser designators/markers operate into t ...

  5. 81mm Mortar Guidance Package

    SBC: Opto-knowledge Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM182001

    OKSI will design and build a Precision Guidance Seeker (PGS) for the 81 mm munition. We will enhance and port our target acquisition and tracking algorithms to a real-time processor onboard the PGS, which will receive target-scene imagery prior to launch or while in flight and will deploy post apogee. OKSI will test the algorithms extensively with a wide range of military-relevant real-world data ...

  6. Tactical Active Anti-Fogging Goggle or Spectacle

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM181003

    The military combat eye protection (MCEP) program is designed to protect our soldiers' eyes from the external threats of fragmentation, electromagnetic radiation, wind, dust, sand, etc. and greatly improve both safety and operational effectiveness. However, the goggles and spectacles on the Military’s authorized protective eyewear list (APEL) are only effective if the soldier is wearing them. Fo ...

  7. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    During altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive and physical capacity degrades, compromising individual and team performance. Cognitive degradation is linked to falling brain energy levels, increased reliance on anaerobic energy production and lactate accumulation. Ketones are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies demonstrated that ...

  8. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Special OperationsForces (SOF)are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S.military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the funct ...

  9. Advanced Image Segmentation for Radar Imagery

    SBC: Electromagnetic Systems, Inc.            Topic: NGA172004

    Implement methods to improve our Phase I architecture for complex SAR imagery collected from different systems and with different collection parameters. Implement techniques to boost performance across all ground features of interest. Reduce the amount of human intervention needed for training our SAR image segmentation architecture.  SAR segmentation can be applied to a number of areas: Intellig ...

  10. Widely-Tunable Distributed-feedback Mid-Infrared Laser for Standoff Chemical Detection

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: A10075

    The Special Operations Forces require the compact capability to rapidly and safely scan an enclosed space and assess the presence of drugs, explosive, or other chemicals in order to support quickly search a room for potential evidence and reduce hostile risks.Pendar is proposing to develop for the current program a handheld standoff chemical detector with a capability for 2-m standoff chemical ana ...
