  1. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: 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 ...

  2. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: 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 ...

  5. Stratospheric Electrical Environments Applicable To Photovoltaic Arrays On HAA Platforms

    SBC: LIGHTNING TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04T008

    The objective of this program is to characterize the upper atmosphere electrical environment so that the effects of this environment on high altitude airships (HAA) and other platforms intending to operate in this environment can be determined, and protection methods developed. This includes transient luminous events (TLEs), such as red sprites and blue jets and their associated electrical propert ...

  6. High-Strength Carbide-Based Fibrous Monolith Materials for Solid Rocket Nozzles

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: MDA04T024

    Over the past 10 to 15 years, there has been a move towards the integration of ¡§advanced¡¨ materials with improved performance in hostile propulsion environments. Tantalum carbide is stable to very high temperatures (~3900„aC) under non-oxidizing conditions, but is relatively soft and erodes appreciably with aluminized propellants. In an effort to improve the strength and erosion resista ...

  7. Full-spectrum Integrated Reaction Evaluation and Synthesis (FIRES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T017

    Highly energetic chemical processes play a central role in many military and commercial applications. For example, spectral emissions from missile plumes, arising from high-velocity chemical interactions of exhaust gases with the atmosphere, are used to detect, track, and identify threat targets. Detailed, quantitative knowledge of the energy-dependent chemical reaction cross sections and rates i ...

  8. Design and Development of Radiation Hardened ROIC for Multi-color LWIR/VLWIR Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T009

    Radiation Hardened Multi-color infrared (IR) focal planes are required for MDA/SMDC systems applications . Key to meeting these system requirements is to develop multi-color radiation hardened HgCdTe focal plane arrays for LWIR band ( 7-14 microns) and VLWIR band with wavelength of greater than 14 microns with high pixel uniformity, reduced readout noise, improved resolution, and higher temperatur ...

  9. Low Cost Fabrication, Inspection and Test Methods for Hardened Satellite Optics

    SBC: QED Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T015

    Optical systems are continually being designed to meet more difficult and challenging performance specifications and applications. Specifically, airborne and space optics are employing larger diameter surfaces with more stringent figure requirements. In order to meet these demands, individual optical surfaces are being given increasingly strict tolerances. The traditional peak-to-valley (PV) and ...
