  1. Social Media Analysis and Reasoning Tool (SMART)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A12aT009

    The proliferation of social media technologies has provided a promising new source of information for intelligence analysts. Effective use of this data could provide insight into the evolution of social networks, identification of communication patterns that lead to events of interest, and analysis of relevant socio-cultural factors and trends. However, intelligence analysts frequently have diffic ...

  2. Nondestructive Concrete Characterization System

    SBC: NLA DIAGNOSTICS LLC            Topic: A12aT013

    During covert operations, the U.S. Army may be required to breach a concrete structure using a controlled explosion. When choosing the most effective charge size and placement, it is vital to perform a rapid field assessment of the material and structural properties of the target structure. However, recent advances in manufacturing high strength concrete materials (such as Ductal) may increase the ...

  4. Preserving Navigation Access for the War Fighter Development of an Acoustic Marine Life Watch System to Support Corps Channel Maintenance and Enhanc

    SBC: SOFAR Acoustics, LLC            Topic: A12aT025

    This effort is focused on establishing U.S. Army Corps leadership in preserving navigation access for the war fighter through the development and implementation of an acoustic-based sensor system to detect, track, and classify large aquatic animals. The proposed high frequency imaging active sonar system is configurable to detect, track, classify, and alert to the presence of threatened and endang ...

  5. Fusion of IR and Radar for Enhanced Threat Recognition and Interception (FIRE-TRAIN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T001

    The proliferation of sophisticated ballistic missile systems threatens the ability of the U.S. to project military power and defend its deployed forces, its allies, and possibly even the homeland. Adversaries continue to improve their ballistic missile technologies, and are expected to incorporate multiple warheads, countermeasures, and decoys. The AEGIS systemthe sea-based component of the U.S. b ...

  6. Feature-Aided RF/IR Track Correlation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA12T001

    Missile tracking sensors such as radar and EO/IR are often called upon to track constellations of multiple closely spaced objects, and recognize pairs of matching tracks from each sensor"s view. The outcome of this track correlation process is crucial for missile defense interceptors, as any failure to identify matches with certainty, for example because of an excessive number of tracks associate ...

  7. IR/RF SPARK- IR/RF fusion using Stochastic Programming And Robust Kinematic features

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    SSCI and MIT team will approach a problem of fusing target data from sensor of different phenomenology using Probabilistic programming technology, Stochastic inference techniques based on Markov chain simulation, and Robust kinematic features. These methods will allow us to estimate the extend of information on metric, material, and kinematic properties of the observed low resolution targets av ...

  9. Modeling Operator Reasoning and Performance for Human-in-Control Simulation (MORPHIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T006

    As the United States makes strides in developing, testing, and deploying missile defense technology, the human element remains core to the integrated, layered ballistic missile defense system (BMDS) architecture. Human operators oversee the command and control at the system, component, and element level across a vast array of networked ground-, sea-, and space-based sensors and interceptors to eff ...

  10. Incremental Learning for Robot Sensing and Control

    SBC: Net-Scale Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A09AT030

    The purpose of this proposal is to build a working prototype of a highly-adaptive, vehicle-independent, compact, low-power, low-cost, autonomous ground robot navigation system that incorporates the results obtained in our Phase I effort and in our earlier DARPA LAGR (Learning Applied to Ground Robots) work. The system will be able to quickly and automatically adapt to changing environments in real ...
