  1. Multi-hop processing for OTHR range extension (MOHAIR)

    SBC: Expedition Technology, Inc.            Topic: NGA191011

    Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR) has been a deployed capability for over 3 decades and uses the ionosphere to reflect HF radar signals in order to illuminate objects (potential targets) beyond the horizon, giving it a potential effective range of several thousand kilometers. This range is impressive, but it assumes/takes advantage of only one bounce off of the ionosphere. The capability to take advan ...

  2. Automating Procedural Modeling of Buildings from Point Cloud Data

    SBC: Dignitas Technologies, LLC            Topic: NGA183002

    Newer techniques in data collection such as Lidar and photogrammetry can provide large quantities of accurate and up-to-date source data models in operational areas, but transforming this often massive amount of raw source data into a lightweight 3D representation that can be quickly consumed by defense customers using a web browser or mobile devices remains a challenging problem. While point clou ...

  3. Improving Uncertainty Estimation with Neural Graphical Models

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: NGA181005

    Building interpretable, composable autonomous systems requires consideration of uncertainties in the decisions and detections theygenerate. Human analysts need accurate absolute measures of probability to determine how to interpret and use the sometimes noisy resultsof machine learning systems; and composable autonomous systems need to be able to propagate uncertainties so that later reasoningsyst ...

  4. Deep-False Alarm Suppression Technique (D-FAST)

    SBC: Deep Learning Analytics, Llc            Topic: NGA181003

    Deep Learning Analytics (DLA) will develop the Deep-False Alarm Suppression Technique (D-FAST) algorithm that uses state of the art and

  5. A User-Centric Gamified Crowdsourcing System for Geospatial Analysts

    SBC: 361 Interactive, Llc            Topic: NGA191007

    Creating comprehensive geospatial datasets requires that National Geospatial Agency (NGA) analysts spend large amounts of time searching for, delineating, and labeling non-moving features in overhead imagery. This tiresome and tedious task can negatively impact not only the analysts’ work satisfaction but also the resulting data quality. Fortunately, recent advances in gamification and crowdsour ...

  6. Boost- A System to Suppress False Alarms from Automated Target Recognizers

    SBC: Seed Innovations, LLC            Topic: NGA181003

    Seed Innovations and subcontractor BIT Systems, a division of CACI International, apply our experience in machine learning, data analytics andimage processing to accomplish the research for the SBIR topic: Suppression of false alarms in Automated Target Recognizers (ATR) that useMachine Learning. With the amount of available imagery data increasing and adversaries vehicles and tactics becoming mor ...

  7. Automating the Semantic Labeling of Trajectory Data

    SBC: Intelligent Models Plus Inc.            Topic: NGA191006

    Advances in location-acquisition and mobile computing techniques have generated massive spatiotemporal trajectory data, which represent the mobility of a diversity of moving objects, such as people, vehicles, and animals. Moreover, recent research has tabbed learning of how to automatically explain and anticipate both the observable and abstract trajectories as one of the likely keys to building t ...

  8. Blending Ground View and Overhead Models

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA181008

    We propose to build ARGON, the ARet Ground-to-Overhead Network. The network will ingest analyst-supplied ground-level imagery ofobjects and retrieve instances of those objects in overhead collections, providing tips back to the analysts. A proprietary method of trainingthe network, leveraging in-house capabilities, data sources, and tools, will be critical to its success. During Phase I, we will p ...

  9. Improved detection sensitivity, geolocation accuracy, and create novel GEOINT products for OTHR radar systems (IGOR)

    SBC: Expedition Technology, Inc.            Topic: NGA191008

    Over the Horizon Radar (OTHR) has been a deployed capability for over 3 decades. OTHR uses the ionosphere to reflect HF radar signals in order to illuminate objects (potential targets) beyond the horizon, giving it a potential effective range of several hundred to a few thousand kilometers. Understanding how the HF radar signals interact and reflect off the ionosphere is crucial to accurate target ...

  10. Multi-hop processing for OTHR range extension

    SBC: Decibel Research, Inc.            Topic: NGA191011

    The development of sophisticated anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) capabilities by our adversaries requires us to develop long range capabilities to mitigate this A2/AD threat. Extending the range of Over The Horizon Radars beyond their conventional single hop operating mode will potentially provide coverage out to 10000 km and beyond. We propose combining existing state-of-the art HF radar ray prop ...
