  2. Munition Guidance Package for Use in a GPS and Laser Denied Environment

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM182001

    Traditional munition guidance packages rely on the Global Positioning System (GPS) or laser designation technologies to target an operator defined location. However, if either of these systems cannot operate, whether they are being actively denied by the enemy or from harsh environmental conditions, the guidance package will fail to function as designed. Toyon Research Corporation proposes to crea ...

  3. Dynamic Diver Breathing Gas Heat Recycler

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM182003

    Tanner proposes to develop a dynamic heat pump system with self-contained, rechargeable battery and driving circuit that operates as a Combination Thermal Recycler (CTR). By utilizing thermal reservoirs coupled with the rebreather mask, heat can be efficiently recycled in proportion to the temperature difference between the exhaled air stream and a target inhaled air temperature. No power would be ...

  4. Diver Breathing Gas Re-heater for Closed Circuit Underwater Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: Sea Star, LLC            Topic: SOCOM182003

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a robust, lightweight and compact device for re-heating and maintaining the temperature of a divers inspired breathing gas when diving on a closed circuit underwater breathing apparatus for the duration of the dive. As a solution, Simuleer proposes to develop the Hybrid Energy Abiotic Thermoelectric (HEAT) system based on a high-power hybrid (i.e. passi ...

  7. Variational Object Recognition and Grouping Network

    SBC: Intellisense Systems, Inc.            Topic: NGA181005

    To address the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) need for overhead imagery analysis algorithms that provide uncertaintymeasures for object recognition and aggregation, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (ISS) proposes to develop a new Variational Object Recognition andGrouping Network (VORGNet) system. It is based on the innovation of implementing a Bayesian convolutional neural network (CNN) ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
