  1. Automated Camera Orientation Recovery Software

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: NGA201006

    To address the NGA’s need to fully automate recovery of camera orientation parameters from ground-level imagery, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop new Automated Camera Orientation Recovery Software (ACORS). It is based on a new, multicue combination of algorithms for finding true horizon lines in images. Specifically, the innovation in locating occluded true horizon lines bel ...

  2. Structured Stories for MOVINT

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA203001

    Arete will integrate the Mover Intelligence Extraction Engine with the Social Structured Framework (SSF) to produce a capability to generate narratives of MOVINT track data with context derived from associated Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other foundation data. The Extraction Engine will be derived from the Arete Cognitive Behavior Classifier (CBC) to characterize MOVINT tracks into co ...

  3. A Multiphysics Approach to Radio Frequency Modeling of Ablators in Ionized Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: NGA203002

    ATA Engineering, Inc., (ATA) proposes to develop and demonstrate a multiphysics framework for the radar cross-section (RCS) analysis of an ablating hypersonic vehicle in an ionized plasma flow field. ATA has developed a software toolset, known as the Multiphysics Engine, capable of modeling many of these hypersonic phenomena. It couples state-of-the-art solvers for CFD (Loci/CHEM), ablation (CHAR) ...

  4. Topological Data Analysis for Automated Annotation of EO/SAR Datasets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA203005

    In recent years, it has become increasingly important to conduct Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) operation via commercial and government persistent sensor systems, which have produced a copious amount of data relevant to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). As the supply of data expands, it is necessary to employ automated analytics to exploit the data efficiently. We cannot rely on ...

  5. Handheld Celestial Navigation System

    SBC: BRIGHT SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM203002

    CelNav systems are currently deployed in aerospace systems, but they depend on unobscured views and relatively smooth and predictable motions over long periods of time. Using these systems for SOCOM ground operations defined by highly variable viewing angles and motion profiles goes well beyond simple adaptation, requiring fundamentally new approaches for select sub-systems associated with primary ...

  6. Handheld Celestial Navigation System

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: SOCOM203002

    Modern navigation systems are heavily reliant on satellites (e.g., GPS, GNSS, GLONASS, etc.) to maintain positional awareness and orientation. These signals are susceptible to intentional disruption, such as jamming or spoofing, and unintentional interruption due to radio frequency interference, signal attenuation caused by local terrain, or satellite malfunctions. Under Phase I of this SBIR, Aret ...

  7. Handheld Celestial Navigation System

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: SOCOM203002

    Optical Physics Company (OPC) has developed and matured an interferometric star tracker technology which can provide the accuracy required for a Handheld Celestial Navigation System (HCNS) to serve as an alternate when primary GPS systems are denied. Innovative research and development is needed to incorporate this technology with other components into a HCNS which can address the eleven (11) desi ...

  8. High-Performance Multi-Platform/Sensor Computing Engine

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM203003

    Over the last decade there has been increasing advances in image processing applied to binoculars and scopes. For instance, hunting and military scopes can allow the user to designate, track, and provide lock indication on a target. However, with advances in neural networks, and associated processors, there are a wide range of additional capabilities that could be incorporated into these optical s ...

  9. Man Portable Starlink System

    SBC: Higher Ground LLC            Topic: SOCOM212001

    In response to SOCOM212-001, Higher Ground proposes to develop a man-portable battery powered Starlink user terminal. Convenient handheld terminals connecting to a very large network of LEO satellites (such as Starlink) could provide the necessary ‘always-on’ reliability that one expects from using GEO satellites along with an additional advantage that we refer to as ‘The LEO Advantage’. T ...

  10. Man Portable Starlink System

    SBC: Canyon Consulting, LLC            Topic: SOCOM212001

    Manifold Analytics and business partner, Lockheed Martin, are proposing an automated microservice pipeline to automate the process of data discovery, source preparation, and conversion of geospatial data into CDB layers for USSOCOM. This toolset is designed to integrate into directly into the existing microservice platform used by the Common Operating Picture (COP) and will leverage two decades of ...
