  1. Advanced Image Segmentation for Radar Imagery

    SBC: ELECTROMAGNETIC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: NGA172004

    Implement methods to improve our Phase I architecture for complex SAR imagery collected from different systems and with different collection parameters. Implement techniques to boost performance across all ground features of interest. Reduce the amount of human intervention needed for training our SAR image segmentation architecture.  SAR segmentation can be applied to a number of areas: Intellig ...

  2. AGING PROCESSES IN NUCLEAR REACTORS

    SBC: Pdi Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    AS NUCLEAR PLANTS GROW OLDER, ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS MAY AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE OF PLANT CONCRETE AND STEEL STRUCTURES. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A STRATEGY WHICH CAN BE APPLIED TO CONCRETE STRUCTURES. IT WILL BE DIRECTED TOWARDSTHE DEVELOPMENT OF METHODS TO ANALYZE AND UNDERSTAND AGING EFFECTS, INCLUDING THE COMBINED EFFECTS OF TIME, TEMPERATURE, RADIATION, HUMIDITY, STRESS, CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT AN ...

  3. A Multi-Branch Network for Automated VNIIRS Assessment of Motion Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA191003

    Due to the lack of consistency in existing automated methods for assigning VNIIRS levels to motion imagery, and the overwhelming human resources required to manually assign levels, a new method of automated/semi-automated VNIIRS assessment is needed. In recent years, advancements in deep learning have provided solutions to previously intractable computer vision problems. In many cases, automated d ...

  5. FACILITATE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF FAULT TREES

    SBC: Expert-ease Systems            Topic: N/A

    WORKSTATION AND EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNOLOGIES HAVE A POTENTIAL OF SUBSTANTIALLY FACILITATING THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATIONOF FAULT TREES. INTRODUCING A WORKSTATION PHILOSOPHY WITH AN INTERACTIVE SET OF INTEGRATED SOFTWARE TOOLS ON A LOCAL COMPUTER WILL PROMOTE IMPROVED CONTINUITY IN THE THOUGHT PROCESS DURING A FAULT TREE DEVELOPMENT. THE EXPERT SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY WILL SIMPLIFY THE WAY FAULT TREES AR ...

  6. Faster Optical Modem for Underwater Data Acquisition

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: NGA182001

    SA Photonics’ Optical Navigation and Ranging (ONAR) system is an interrogative system that operate underwater in wavelength range of blue/green (450-540 nm) and enables navigational correction to IMU based dead reckoning navigation. The location based beacons are battery operated and have operational life span of over one year. The system is designed to operate in on demand burst mode so that no ...

  7. 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 ...

  9. Low-Shot Detection in Remote Sensing Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA172002

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes to develop algorithms that improve the precision and recall of neural networks for low-shot object classification and detection. Our approach is based upon developing a descriptive multi-domain feature representation of the low-shot target as well as the surrounding context. A multi-branch neural network merges the various domains of information to perform accur ...
