The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. TheSieve

    SBC: Cyber Point International, LLC            Topic: NA

    We propose to create an advanced forensic analysis tool called TheSieve. This tool will use machine learning techniques that can classify files as malicious or benign as well as suggesting files for closer inspection. Built upon custom enhancements to the National Software Reference Library (NSRL), TheSieve will allow forensic investigators to spend theirvaluable time examining the most significan ...

  3. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: Next Century Corporation            Topic: NGA172002

    Next Century Corporation proposes the development of Muggsy, a low-shot deep learning detection prototype system that learns to recognize uncommon targets in remote imagery. Our Phase I research extends and leverages an image classification system of our own design called EvoDevo. EvoDevo evolves its own neural network architecture before training to meet the complexity of the data. Muggsy uses le ...

  4. GFNet: Gnostic Fields based Low-Shot Learning for Target Detection in Remote Sensing

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: NGA172002

    To detect uncommon targets in remote sensing imagery, it is quite often that very few prior examples are available. This so-called low-shot detection remains a very challenging problem in remote sensing, despite the recent development in state-of-the-art object detection algorithms such as Faster R-CNN and YOLO, and low-shot learning methods such as feature shrinking, model regression and memory a ...

  6. TOFENetTopographic Features Extraction Network

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: NGA181001

    Topographic features found in ground-based natural images contain information that is useful for a variety of applications including locationestimation and navigation. Traditionally these features have been manually labeled by analysts which is costly and time consuming, especiallyconsidering the volume of readily available data. We propose a novel method for extracting topographic features from s ...
