  2. MISARO- MeetPeoplePlaces(tm) Inference for Stability and Reconstruction Operations

    SBC: BASHPOLE SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: SB091003

    Several geosocial inference concerns currently limit military stability and reconstruction operations. Contact lists are outdated, vendor history is not maintained, and coordination delays are common. In this Phase I SBIR project for DARPA, Bashpole Inc. will design and demonstrate the feasibility of MISARO, a web-based platform system to improve the process of finding the right people among milit ...

  4. Detecting and Tracking Multiple Moving Objects from a Moving Platform

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082029

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of a novel tracking algorithm that uses spatial context to reason about long term intentions. While it is hard to fully anticipate a person's behavior, we can generate a set of reasonable hypotheses about it by selecting a number of high-level goals for known persons (e.g., a civilian goes to a store or home, a soldier searches for cover, a biker ...

  5. An Advanced Path-Planner for Militarily Relevant Environments

    SBC: RE2, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    A path planner is an integral part of any unmanned vehicle that is intended to autonomously navigate to a desired goal location. Although a great deal of research has been done in the field of path planning, there are still unsolved issues that require additional work. This project proposes several innovations to existing path planning technology that can deal with a number of issues that arise in ...

  8. Transformational Close Air Support

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082061

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of developing an HMMWV based Vertical Unmanned Aircraft System (VUAS) with laser designator and target geo-referencing capability to provide Close Air Support (CAS). Shoulder fired missiles have pushed US aircraft so far away from the CAS customer that he needs to find a replacement for the aircraft. As CAS aircraft stand off farther from the sma ...
