System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face RecognitionSBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC Topic: SOCOM18A001
Face recognition performance using deep learning has seen dramatic improvements in recent years. This improvement has been fueled in part by the curation of large labeled training datasets with millions of images of hundreds of thousands of subjects.This results in effective generalization for matching over pose, illumination, expression and age variation, however these datasets have traditionally ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face RecognitionSBC: MUKH Technologies LLC Topic: SOCOM18A001
Recognizing faces in low-light and nighttime conditions is a challenging problem due to the noisy and poor quality nature of the images.Thermal imaging is often used to obtain facial biometric in such conditions. Thermal face images, while having a strong signature at nighttime, are not typically maintained in biometric-enabled watch lists and so must be compared with visible-light face images to ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Human Performance OptimizationSBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC Topic: SOCOM17C001
Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Inhibiting Prolyl Hydroxylase to Mimic Natural Acclimatization to High Altitude to Improve Warfighter Performance at High AltitudeSBC: Research Logistics Company Topic: SOCOM17C001
Acclimatization is the long-term adjustment that humans experience when exposed for weeks or months to high altitude. Acclimatization is important in this context because a warfighter who is acclimatized to high altitude is immune to high altitude illness, has superior work capacity, and has cognitive function approaching that found at sea level. In other words, the acclimatized warfighter is opti ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
