  1. Facial Signature Reduction

    SBC: Bambu Vault LLC            Topic: SOCOM12004

    Reducing the personal signature of the warfighter, while simultaneously allowing him to"see, breathe and hear"is critical to mission success. Methods of concealment that are suitable for the body do not adequately mask the face without hindering the ability to"see, breathe and hear". To address the need for reducing signature in the Visible and NIR/SWIR region Performance Indicator, LLC (PI) pro ...

  2. CREATE: Contextually Relevant Exploitation&Analysis Training Environment

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CR2

    Imagery analysts face challenges that complicate their ability to gain and maintain contextual awareness. On the job training provides some instruction but tends to focus too much on the specificities of the domain. When analysts view imagery that deviates from that domain, they tend to make mistakes such as mis-identifying equipment or failing to recognize patterns of enemy activity. Aptima, Inc. ...

  3. ISR-IT: Adaptive Desktop Trainer for Imagery Analysis Based on Contextual Factors

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: OSD11CR2

    The analysis and interpretation of Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) imagery data is a key driver of actionable intelligence. With the current operations, being primarily in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is important for us to understand the cultural, environmental, behavioral, economic factors in the interpretation of ISR imagery. A number of scenarios exist where the ISR imagery can ...

  4. Simulated Operational Communications and Coordination Integration for Aircrew Learning (SOCIAL) Tool

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CR3

    As the Air Force responds to high demands for Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) operations, devices and strategies for effectively training Pilots and Sensor Operators are likely to increase in importance. While simulation-based training has evolved in recent years, the majority of attention has been directed towards training piloting skills. Current tools and devices for preparing RPA crews lack a ...

  5. Adaptive Training Manager (ATM) system

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD11CR4

    Traditional Learning Management Systems (LMSs) provide many beneficial capabilities to instructors and training organizations, mostly focused on course management in computer based training (CBT) rather than content learning. Similarly, simulation-based training is increasingly implementing the use of adaptive training methods to support more efficient use of valuable trainee and simulator time, ...

  6. Bias Formulation, Characterization, and Learning (BIFOCAL)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11DR5

    A key challenge to higher level information fusion is fusing data originally collected for disparate tasks. Although much data may be available, data collected for a particular task may not be well suited to subsequent tasks because it embodies biases inherent in the original data collection process. A major challenge to applying data to a new purpose is understanding and correcting for biases in ...

  7. Towards Integration of Data for unBiased Intelligence and Trust (TID-BIT)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: OSD11DR5

    To expedite intelligence collection process, analysts reuse previously collected data. This poses the risk of analysis failure, because these data are biased in ways that the analyst may not know. Thus, these data may be incomplete, inconsistent or incorrect, have structural gaps and limitations, or simply be too old to accurately represent the current state of the world. We propose the Towards In ...

  8. Adaptive Deception using Linguistic Inference of Behaviors (AD-LIB)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    As cyber attacks become increasingly and more effectively targeted, so must our cyber defenses become less"one size fits all."We need to develop active defenses that can adapt themselves to an attack in progress. This development will require not only improvements in our detection capabilities but also techniques to engage and out-game attackers. If we can develop robust models of attacks and atta ...

  9. Tangible trustworthiness for mixed-initiative network defense (T2-MIND)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA4

    Cyber defenders must interact with a variety of diverse feeds and explore network information in many abstract contexts. Unfortunately, existing digital tools provide poor affordances for the perception and manipulation of critical metrics of network trustworthiness, unnecessarily complicating the network defense task and increasing cognitive workload. To address these challenges, we propose to de ...
