  1. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Vehicle Classification of Thirteen Classes

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on the camera’s field of view. In general, video systems have physical disadvantages related to the ...

  2. CREATE II: Contextually Relevant Exploitation&Analysis Training Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD11CR2

    Imagery analysts face a number of challenges that complicate their ability to gain contextual awareness, particularly when exploiting multiple forms of sensor data. Faced with adaptable adversaries, analysts require advanced training tools that span a variety of mission contexts. Because no analyst can be an expert in every sensor platform, what is needed is a training tool that senses and adapts ...

  3. Solid Waste Destruction System (SWDS) for Small Contingency Base Camps

    SBC: MSW Power Corporation            Topic: OSD12EP2

    Solid waste disposal and/or destruction are problems that cannot be ignored in patrol base camps or combat outposts and are frequently cited as one of the pressing concerns for established camps. MSW Power has developed a Solid Waste Destruction System (SWDS) consisting of a compactor that mechanically and thermally removes moisture from patrol base camp solid waste, a pyrolysis unit in which the ...

  5. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Motorcycle and Bicycle Detection and Classification

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

      In Phase I, we developed a suite of algorithms for the detection and classification of motorcycle and bicycle using IR LED stereo camera, LWIR thermal camera, and microphone.  Test results using real data collected at streets have shown an excellent performance of this system.  In Phase II, we will further improve the system developed and focus on the system performance issues in ...

  6. New Robust Multiple Pedestrian Detection and Tracking System

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 04FH3

          Large Scale Field Tests of MigmaMidblockTM Under FHWA SBIR Phase I/II funding, we have developed a product, MigmaMidblockTM, using stereoscopic technologies for the pedestrian detection at mid-block crossings and signalized intersections. It has been fielded at a mid-block crossing at Phillips Academy located in Andover, MA. This product can trigger the beacon flashers once ...
