The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. 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 ...

  2. Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT002

    The increased use of sensing systems and large scale networked nodes with a variety of embedded sensors and imagery is creating a plethora of varied data that needs to be fused and interpreted for applications such as surveillance, reconnaissance, and air traffic controls. The need for persistent human analysis with high levels of proficiency is taxing human resources and cognitive abilities. In t ...

  3. Bayesian Inference of Spacecraft Geometry and Pose

    SBC: Vision Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT007

    Space platforms are complex dynamical systems and there are many reasons to model them from ground telescope imagery as well as from space-based sensor platforms. One key motivation is to determine the operational state and configuration of the vehicle. Key questions such as did the solar panels fail to deploy, did the object begin to tumble unexpectedly may be addressed by a sufficiently detaile ...

  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 ...
