  1. Automated, Drone-Based Grade Crossing Inspection

    SBC: MTRI, Inc.            Topic: 190FR6

    Drone–based assessment of rail grade crossings offers a great potential for rapid assessment of hang-up condition, visual sight line analysis, and crossing infrastructure. Through the Phase I SBIR, a proof-of-concept system was demonstrated at highway-rail crossings near Chelsea, MI with partner review. The collected imagery was processed through 3D photogrammetric software to produce high resol ...

  2. Driver's Assistant for Intelligent SafetY (DAISY)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 151FH1

    With the introduction of Level 2 (L2) vehicle automation technologies, a core challenge facing drivers is to remain engaged in the driving task and aware of the vehicle environment despite not playing an immediate role in the low-level driving control loop. To overcome this challenge, SoarTech developed DAISY, an innovative vehicle sub-system that maintains internal and external situation awarenes ...

  3. (4) Deep Defense of Distributed Deep Learning (D4L)

    SBC: EH GROUP            Topic: N193A01

    This project aims to achieve trustworthy deep learning (TDL)-based distributed computation among wireless connected Naval devices (sensors, UAVs, mobile phones, ships, etc.) through the seamless integration of cryptography, a complimentary classifier, and communications (C4). Distributed Deep Learning (DDL) runs in a distributed Naval network setting and is vulnerable to attacks that have knowledg ...

  5. NAVY TECHNOLOGY ACCELERATION- Advanced Technologies (including AR/VR) for Manpower, Personnel, Training, and Education

    SBC: IMMY INC            Topic: N193A03

    In order to be able to develop and validate a mixed reality tool for extraction and preservation of expert domain knowledge the information MUST be visible. This requires that the Optical see-through HMD has the ability to maintain a specified contrast ratio of the augmented material in all lighting conditions. This requires a specialized lens, which covers the whole usable region of the field of ...

  6. 2- AWARE-Perception

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N193A02

    Soar Technology, Inc. and Northrop Grumman propose AWARE – Perception, a self-aware architecture for improving underwater perception through motion. An unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV) equipped with AWARE-Perception learns from experience to accurately perceive its surroundings through judicious use of perception-oriented behavior. Leveraging prior episodic memory and behavioral adaptation deve ...

  7. 2- Trafalgar-Tailored, Focused, LVC Generalized AAR

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N193A03

    After Action Review (AAR) systems today are often tied to a particular training or deployment system. This approach is not effective for today’s Navy and Marine missions, which span multiple warfare domains and include many different types of platforms and mission capabilities. Stovepipe technologies require instructors to gather data from many systems to perform an AAR. As a result, effective A ...

  8. Automated, Drone-Based Grade Crossing Inspection

    SBC: MTRI, Inc.            Topic: 190FR6

    There is a need and opportunity for an easily deployable, flexible, high-resolution system that can increase the speed, safety, and ease of evaluating grade crossings wherever they are found. Advancements in the capabilities of unmanned aerial systems (UAS or “drones”), combined with more flexible flight rules from the Federal Aviation Administration have been enabling more widespread testing ...

  9. TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C.

    SBC: The Associated Corp            Topic: N/A

    TAC PROPOSES TO CONDUCT A STUDY TO EVALUATE THE COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS FORWARD-LOOKING AUTONOMOUS SENSORS AND ALGORITHMS FOR TLAM-C. THE CURRENT TLAM-C USES A TERRAIN MAPPING RADAR ALTIMETER AND CORRELATES THE SENSED AREA AT KEY WAYPOINTS WITH A STORED DIGITAL REPRESENTATION OF THE TERRAIN AREA AT THE WAYPOINTS TO PROVIDE MID-COURSE AND TERMINAL GUIDANCE CORRECTION TO THE INERTIAL NA ...
