  3. 81mm Mortar Guidance Package

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM182001

    OKSI will design and build a Precision Guidance Seeker (PGS) for the 81 mm munition. We will enhance and port our target acquisition and tracking algorithms to a real-time processor onboard the PGS, which will receive target-scene imagery prior to launch or while in flight and will deploy post apogee. OKSI will test the algorithms extensively with a wide range of military-relevant real-world data ...

  4. Innovative Methods for Correlating Physiological Measures of Pilot Workload to Handling Qualities

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N192071

    In 1969 George Cooper and Robert Harper published their seminal report on the use of pilot ratings in aircraft handling qualities evaluations that produced the pilot rating scale that remains in use today. The scale features key innovations that revolutionized handling qualities testing including the decision tree that guides pilots to the handling qualities level and the individual ratings that a ...

  9. Generalized Change Detection to Cue Regions of Interest

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA181006

    Toyon proposes to research and develop algorithms for generalized salient change detection, and to incorporate these algorithms into software tools implemented on the cloud. Our approach leverages the two most promising methods from Phase I, both based on supervised learning. The first method is the entropy-based feature vector and corresponding neural network, which we will apply at a coarse sear ...
