  1. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: SecureMarking, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    Reconfigurable authentication unit for reading security codes printed onto parts. Our technology uses upconverting nanoparticles (UCNPs) to print durable security codes onto authentic products. We have developed a working reading apparatus that can scan codes printed onto objects with the dimensions of a credit card. This proposal will support development of a reader apparatus that is versatile en ...

  2. Rapid construction of 3-D Satellite models from limited amounts of 2-D imagery

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF181020

    Increases in space traffic have caused an ever-growing need to recognize, track, and determine the operational state of both known and unknown satellites in-situ. Imagery from ground and/or space-based observation platforms provide a convenient and versatile data source for such characterization but is often limited in both quantity and quality. Rapid and automated 3D reconstruction of satellite m ...

  3. Deep Sea Vision AI: Deep Learning-Based Real-Time Marine Animal Detection for Entanglement Mitigation

    SBC: Synthetik Applied Technologies LLC            Topic: 832

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to develop and implement a real-time detection and warning system to mitigate marine entanglement events in offshore aquaculture operations. In order to achieve this, we leverage the latest advances in computer vision, deep learning, and real-time object detection to develop a real-time marine life detection, classification and tracking pipeline ...

  4. Global Surveillance Augmentation Using Commercial Satellite Imaging Systems

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF153001

    ABSTRACT:A system is proposed to access, collate and process imagery from multiple small satellite constellations. The imagery is fused and registered to a common reference so that exploitation algorithms, such as change detection and event monitoring, are reported with accurate geographic coordinates. The system, called SatTel, is implemented as open source software that is designed to run on the ...

  5. SIGMA: Speedy Imagery Geo-registration and Motion Analysis

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131151

    ABSTRACT: VSI proposes the development of the SIGMA (Speedy Imagery Geo-registration and Motion Analysis) system, which will address three key requirements by the end of Phase II: (i) adapt to different type of sensors, sensor-configurations and sensor operating conditions, (ii) handle large amount of data in real-time or close to real-time using limited resources, and (iii) operate under conditi ...

  6. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  7. Speedy Sparse Bundle Adjustment for Video/Image Sequences

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131151

    ABSTRACT: VSI proposes a flexible sensor estimation framework for airborne calibration processing of image streams over long time periods. The components of the framework will consist of existing software and libraries. The plugin-based framework provides flexibility to switch the components easily. The core of the framework is a belief propagation engine to globally optimize the sensor parameter ...

  8. Long-distance 3-D Reconstruction from EO/IR Imagery

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF131133

    ABSTRACT: While the state of the art in both single-image reconstruction algorithms and multi-view structure from motion algorithms have advanced considerably in recent years, little work has been performed which leverages the constraints relied upon by both approaches. When an area of interest is imaged from a long distance with little angular diversity in viewpoint, multi-view constraints alon ...

  9. Uncertainty-based 3-d Fusion of Multi-Sensor Aerial Imagery

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF121165

    ABSTRACT: Multi-sensor fusion is a key capability required for effective inferences for timely and accurate strategy and tactical planning. A multi-sensor fusion technology needs to appropriately weigh different image streams according to the uncertainties and errors across different inputs and parameters such as GPS and INS measurements, sensor model parameters, inherent ambiguities of the data ...

  10. Passive Airborne Radar Using Opportunistic Signals (PASSAROS)

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: AF121138

    ABSTRACT: A key requirement for a practical/scalable airborne passive radar system using opportunistic ground emitters such as broadcast TV is the ability to effectively isolate the high-powered direct-path signals from much weaker target reflected ones. Previous passive radars rely on array antennas complemented by multistatic techniques and dedicate/agile decoders for every-possible-type of opp ...
