  1. High Repetition Rate Microwave Modulation

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Several important emerging applications require efficient, high-speed high-duty-cycle, amplitude modulation of high levels of microwave power, with low cost and small size-and-weight. The modulation frequency and average power required for these applications are far beyond the capabilities of existing technology. MRC proposes to research and develop two alternative methods of achieving square-wa ...

  2. Passive multi-view, multi-channel detection of highly obscured targets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA04001

    The goal of this Phase I SBIR is to define a set of algorithms that will detect and characterize static man-made objects highly obscured by foliage within multi-view, multi-channel optical data collected passively from UAVs or other aerial platforms. The proposed algorithm stream will be constructed so as to comprehend and mitigate real-world interfering effects such as clouds, smoke and haze. Dur ...

  3. Multi-level Frame Technology for Digital Elevation Data Generation

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "The National Imagery and Mapping Agency is seeking new and innovative technology for generating Digital Terrain Elevation Data Level 2 (DTED-2) for territories above 60 degrees N. Important criteria include vertical accuracy of 16 m and horizontal accuracyof 20 m, and identification and selection of available cost effective imagery sources that will require a minimal number of ground control poin ...

  4. Blending Ground View and Overhead Models

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA181008

    We propose to build ARGON, the ARet Ground-to-Overhead Network. The network will ingest analyst-supplied ground-level imagery ofobjects and retrieve instances of those objects in overhead collections, providing tips back to the analysts. A proprietary method of trainingthe network, leveraging in-house capabilities, data sources, and tools, will be critical to its success. During Phase I, we will p ...

  5. Ultrafast Gas Curtain and Wire-Reinforced X-Ray Window Debris Shields

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes to develop two components of a three-component, survivable debris shield for large area test exposures to cold (1-5keV) x-rays. These elements also have commercial potential in accelerators and in radiography. The elements are: an ultrafast gas curtain designed to be located close to the x-ray source to deflect plasma debris as well as ~um siz ...

  6. Alternative PNT Augmentations for Handhelds

    SBC: YOTTA NAVIGATION CORPORATION            Topic: NGA07002

    Yotta Navigation proposes to develop the MOUTman, a rugged, handheld, secure, high-precision real-time navigation system suitable for military operations. This system will take advantage of Yotta's existing expertise in several areas: inertial and differential GPS-assisted navigation, user interface design, efficient integration of components from mainstream suppliers, and our deep knowledge of r ...

  7. Improving Uncertainty Estimation with Neural Graphical Models

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: NGA181005

    Building interpretable, composable autonomous systems requires consideration of uncertainties in the decisions and detections theygenerate. Human analysts need accurate absolute measures of probability to determine how to interpret and use the sometimes noisy resultsof machine learning systems; and composable autonomous systems need to be able to propagate uncertainties so that later reasoningsyst ...

  8. Advanced Geospatial Computing

    SBC: REPLICUS SOFTWARE CORP.            Topic: NGA05001

    Our primary concept is a distributed storage system capable of supporting organizations which scale from the small to the very largest. The goal is to build a distributed self-configuring; self-managing and self-healing file storage system which exhibits modular upgradeability and dynamic adaptation to an organization's evolving needs. Our strategy to do this is to exploit a unique scientifically ...

  10. Efficient Digitization of Nuclear Fireball Film

    SBC: CARPENTER RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The objectives of the proposed work are to develop the technical feasibility and detailed requirements for new methods and technology to decrease, substantially, the cost and time required to digitize and store high-speed, high-resolution film without sacrificing the spatial and grayscale depth of the original film. The work will be aimed at improvements that would make it practical to digitize a ...
