The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. 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 ...

  2. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Special Operations Forces (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 fu ...

  3. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    Face recognition performance using deep learning has seen dramatic improvements in recent years. This improvement has been fueled in part by the curation of large labeled training datasets with millions of images of hundreds of thousands of subjects.This results in effective generalization for matching over pose, illumination, expression and age variation, however these datasets have traditionally ...

  4. GEOFF: Geo-location from Edges, Objects, Foundational data, and a Filter

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: NGA181007

    Ground vehicles with navigation capability (e.g., GPS) can index into foundation data (e.g., Google Maps) to gain situational awareness abouttheir surroundings. When GPS and RF navigation sources are degraded, maintaining situational awareness requires an alternative navigationsource. One alternative source is the foundation data itself. The data contain objects at known 3D locations, which projec ...

  5. Generalized Change Detection to Cue Regions of Interest

    SBC: FeatureX, Inc.            Topic: NGA181006

    Generalized change detection is a critical capability to mitigate the need for massive human inspection of the rapidly expanding volume ofglobal overhead satellite imagery. Current optical change detection approaches focus on fully specified systems to detect a predefined set ofchanges, and effective approaches for generalized change detection have not yet been demonstrated. We propose to build a ...

  6. Daytime Marker

    SBC: JGM ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM173001

    Phase I work will combine computer modeling and lab experiments to demonstrate feasibility of a hand-held marker / designator that can generate laser emission at 1064 nm, a wavelength in the 3000 to 4200 nm range, and at a wavelength in the 4400 to 5400 nm range.By improving laser beam quality by a factor of 4 to 16, we will reduce laser output pulse energy requirements by a factor of 10 to 100 at ...

  7. Quantum Cascade Lasers for Multi-Band Daytime Markers

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: SOCOM173001

    The prevalence of precision guided munitions has increased dramatically in the previous decades, with estimates showing nearly 90% of munitions will be precision guided by 2020. Of these munitions over 90% are expected to be laser guided. There still exists a challenge in reliably laser designating a target in full daylight conditions. Expanding the current laser designator abilities to these mid- ...

  8. High Power Daytime Marker with Extremely Narrow Divergence

    SBC: Corcoran Engineering, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM173001

    The goal of this project is to develop a power-scalable laser source suitable for laser designation of targets.The main thrust will focus on power scaling of individual laser elements using passive coherent beam combination technology.Scaling the output power of a single laser element beyond a few 100 mW presents a significant challenge as phenomena such as catastrophic optical damage or heat diss ...

  9. On-the-Fly 3D Modeling

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SOCOM173003

    Systems & Technology Research (STR) proposes to develop automated near real-time 3D reconstruction techniques from narrow field-of-view video imagery for processing on board small unmanned aerial systems.STR will conduct trade studies in Phase I, using our state-of-the-art 3D modeling pipeline, to design a 3D modeling capability that satisfies USSOCOMs requirements and to identify accuracy/efficie ...

  10. Rapid Acquisition Management Platform (RAMP)

    SBC: GURU Technology            Topic: SOCOM18004

    The Government current software development acquisition process takes months or years for technology to reach operational users. The process within the Department of Defense (DoD) is drastically more expensive than available options used in the commercial market space. GURU Technology will demonstrate feasibility of an innovative platform to: 1) drastically lower cost, 2) improve results, 3) signi ...
