The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. ZnS Scintillator for High Resolution X-ray Imaging at 9keV

    SBC: CERANOVA CORPORATION            Topic: DMEA15B001

    Novel scintillator materials are needed to address the requirements of fast, high resolution x-ray microscopy, including higher stopping power and light yields. Achieving the required high efficiency and high spatial resolution is challenging and depends strongly on the scintillator characteristics. Knowledge of the details of the trap states can lead to significantly reduced afterglow and fast ...

  5. New Sensor for 9 keV HRXM

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: DMEA15B001

    The use of penetrating radiation such as x-rays allows probing materials for their internal structure through direct imaging methods in a non-destructive way. X-rays as more penetrating and with shorter wavelengths than visible light allow imaging internal structures with better resolution. The resolution of details can reach nm sizes. This is realized in High Resolution X-ray Microscopy (HRXM). ...

  6. Quantum Cryptography Single Photon Detector Chip

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: DMEA142001

    AET will perform R&D to develop a quantum cryptographic single photon counting system (or detector) consisting of a high performance integrated circuit chip and detector (such as an avalanche photodiode) for use in a secure fiber optic communications link. Quantum cryptography applies an encryption scheme that uses a series of single, polarized photons that act as the key between the sender an ...

  8. IMAGINE: Imagery Management through Agile, Geo-Interactive, Natural Embodiment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: NGA11002

    Overhead imagery analysts employ computer-based software as Electronic Light Tables (ELTs), to perform detailed analysis of aerial images in search of elements of interest. Conventional display design for ELT software requires analysts to take their eyes away from the image they are analyzing to perform routine functions. This interaction overhead typically leads to losses in visual momentum and i ...
