  1. Miniature Intelligent Spectral Analyzer

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0181003

    To address the DHS need to rapidly detect radio interference of critical radio frequency (RF) communications channels utilized by first responders, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Miniature Intelligent Spectral Analyzer (MISCAN) device based on a combination of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) electronic components in a custom software-defined configuration along with in ...

  2. Advanced Receiver for Distressed Emitter Localization (ARDEL)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HSB0181002

    A majority of U.S. adults own a cell phone and are inclined to use it in emergency situations to call for assistance. Unfortunately, in areas where the density of cell towers is low, such as in rural and off-shore environments, the ability of the wireless network to geolocate the origin of the wireless signal is poor to non-existent. Under the proposed effort, Toyon Research Corporation will devel ...

  3. Remote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0181002

    To address the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) need for a cell phone location finder for maritime and remote search and rescue (SAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new REmote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue (REPLIER). REPLIER leverages novel techniques recently developed at POC to extend the range of cellular communications and integrate commercial cellu ...

  4. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA172002

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to research and develop algorithms for low-shot object detection, adapting popular techniques to address the complexities inherent in ATR for remote sensing. Traditional object detection algorithms rely on large corpora of data which may not be available for more exotic targets (such as foreign military assets), and therefore, traditional Convolutional Neural Ne ...

  5. Blending Ground View and Overhead Models

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA181008

    We propose to build ARGON, the ARet Ground-to-Overhead Network. The network will ingest analyst-supplied ground-level imagery ofobjects and retrieve instances of those objects in overhead collections, providing tips back to the analysts. A proprietary method of trainingthe network, leveraging in-house capabilities, data sources, and tools, will be critical to its success. During Phase I, we will p ...

  6. Improving Uncertainty Estimation with Neural Graphical Models

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: NGA181005

    Building interpretable, composable autonomous systems requires consideration of uncertainties in the decisions and detections theygenerate. Human analysts need accurate absolute measures of probability to determine how to interpret and use the sometimes noisy resultsof machine learning systems; and composable autonomous systems need to be able to propagate uncertainties so that later reasoningsyst ...

  7. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181010

    The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) ingests and analyzes raw imagery from multiple sources to form actionable intelligenceproducts that can be disseminated across the intelligence community (IC). To effectively meet these demands NGA must continue to improveits automated and semi-automated methods for target detection and classification. Of particular concern is furthering NGA's abil ...

  8. Automated Assessment of Urban Environment Degradation for Disaster Relief andReconstruction

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181004

    Toyon Research Corp. proposes development of a system that automates disaster assessment based on fusion of overhead and ground-basedimages, video, and other data. In Phase I, we will investigate various possible data sources and the benefits of fusing the data in automatedanalysis. We will select and curate data for processing in a Phase I feasibility study. Damage assessment will be performed in ...

  9. Generalized Change Detection to Cue Regions of Interest

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181006

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to research and develop algorithms for generalized change detection, by leveraging and exploringexisting and proven effective traditional and deep learning methods, with a unique 3D reconstruction component. The vast majority of themassive amounts of imagery data will have small pixel level differences due to a multitude of unimportant changes: minor misregistra ...

  10. Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 1

    On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...
