  1. Spotter: Exploiting Large-Format Imagery via Foveated Visual Search

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: AF073076

    The proposed Spotter effort develops the algorithms necessary to exploit large format (LF) imagery in an operational environment with layered sensor platforms by cueing high-resolution sensors in order to reduce downstream data volume. In order to support analysts conducting intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions, image exploitation workstations must have automatic target recogni ...

  2. Impact Modeling and Prediction of Attacks on Cyber Targets (IMPACT)

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: OSD06IA3

    Cyber networks are a critical part of the nation’s security. Not only do cyber networks protect critical and sensitive information, they also enable vital functions both in the U.S. and abroad, in the military as well as in the commercial realm and are therefore a valuable target for international and domestic adversaries. Systems administrators and analysts are faced with a near-impossible tas ...

  3. Global Information Grid Automated Document Classification and Summarization System

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: OSD07I08

    The Department of Defense (DoD) requires an automated process to aid the timely dissemination of information to those with need to know without exposing secure information. Though security requirements often take a higher priority than users’ need for information, it is also imperative that actionable intelligence be received by warfighters, analysts, and agents who actively prevent security thr ...

  4. Human and Unmanned Teams for Tracking Elusive Dismounts (HUNTED)

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: OSD06UM2

    21st Century Technologies, Inc. (21CT) presents the Human and Unmanned Teaming for Tracking Elusive Dismounts (HUNTED) effort. HUNTED gives small units direct control over a coordinated team of two or more unmanned systems (UMS) to perform superior search, detection, and tracking of elusive pedestrian targets in an urban environment. Our novel approach combines 3D environment knowledge with a uniq ...

  5. Theory and Application of Foveated Acquisition and Tracking (TAFAT)

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: AF071155

    Foveated imagery is ubiquitous in nature, and foveating sensors offer the potential for superior performance in artificial vision systems. However, technical and user acceptance barriers caused in part by a lack of mature theory currently hinder the exploitation of foveated imagery on the battlefield. Our TAFAT Phase 1 experiments conclusively demonstrated that under reasonable assumptions and wit ...

  6. AALF: Adjustable Adaptive Language speech Filter

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: AF071079

    The ability to efficiently process intelligence data is critical to fighting the global war on terror. A major source of this data is recorded speech. Therefore, the performance of speech processing applications (speech recognition and speaker identification applications, for example) depends on pre-processing to find the regions in the recording where speech is present. Although current method ...

  7. Software Integration for Computational Cognitive Models in Virtual Environments

    SBC: Adaptive Cognitive Systems            Topic: AF07T020

    Development of a general purpose software interface between cognitive models and 3D virtual environments requires innovation and research in cognitive abstractions and interfaces, as well as a thoughtful application of software architecture and engineering principles. We propose to embed these innovative cognitive abstractions in a middleware layer that offers “plug-and-play” operation for ar ...

  8. Binaural Capture and Synthesis of Ambient Soundscapes

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF081015

    Advanced Acoustic Concepts (AAC) will develop a reliable, validated, and fully documented system for digitally recording ambient soundscapes and resynthesize the desired soundscape for binaural presentation to human listeners via headphones. The system will take advantage of the established acoustical signal processing technology of AAC and the state-of-the-art psychoacoustics research and audio r ...

  9. Biologically Based Non-Language Speech Sound Detection

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF071079

    This proposal addresses the application of new acoustic processing technologies to automatically identify and eliminate non-language speech sounds as a pre-processing stage to improve audio processing. Non-language speech sounds (coughing, breathing, ‘ah,’ ‘uhmm’) make up a large part of natural human language use, but contemporary speech recognition data preparation relies on hand-labelin ...

  10. Terahertz Source and Spectrometer

    SBC: Advanced Energy Systems, Inc            Topic: AF073012

    High power, high frequency (100 GHz to 7 THz) RF sources can provide revolutionary advances in several militarily significant areas. THz imaging, spectroscopy and communications are important emerging applications. A THz spectrometer making use of a high power, tunable source would provide an invaluable tool for exploring these applications and the effects of THz radiation on biological systems. ...
