System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face RecognitionSBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC Topic: SOCOM18A001
Face recognition performance using deep learning has seen dramatic improvements in recent years. This improvement has been fueled in part by the curation of large labeled training datasets with millions of images of hundreds of thousands of subjects.This results in effective generalization for matching over pose, illumination, expression and age variation, however these datasets have traditionally ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social MediaSBC: SECURBORATION INC Topic: A12aT009
The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseArmy
HIGH STRENGTH AND TOUGHNESS TUNGSTEN CARBIDE (WC) WITH NON-COBALT (Co) MATRICESSBC: UES INC Topic: OSD12T07
Cemented cobalt-tungsten carbide is a material with attractive properties including high hardness and fracture toughness that has found success in a wide variety of applications ranging from drilling bits to armor piercing projectiles. However, with the classification of cobalt as a strategic and critical material that the US Department of Health and Human Services has classified as"reasonably ant ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseArmy
Additive Manufacturing of Multifunctional NanocompositesSBC: Sciperio, Inc. Topic: A13AT010
Sciperio with team members Georgia Institute of Technology and Centecorp have teamed up to develop an Additive Manufacturing Composite using nano and micro fillers. The team will develop multi-scale models that are supported by experimental characterization for advanced 3D Printable materials. Inelastic response of high strength hierarchical structures composed of engineered materials and specif ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseArmy
BRDF Analysis of LADAR-based Target Surface CharacterizationSBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES INC Topic: A10AT006
LADAR light reflection from a target is highly dependent of the spectral reflectivity and texture properties of the surface. Such dependencies could be exploited for target recognition based on surface characterization with appropriate imaging conditions and processing algorithms. Target surface light reflection is characterized by the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF), which ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseArmy
Soft and Elastomeric Intramuscular Electrode with Therapeutic Delivery CapabilitySBC: TDA Research, Inc. Topic: A13AT019
Approximately 5-6% of military injuries involve some form of major peripheral nerve injury with little chance of spontaneous healing. Currently these injuries lead to major impairment of voluntary muscle function in the limbs and extremities, making tasks of walking, reaching, grasping, etc. very difficult or impossible for many patients. It is not enough to focus therapeutic treatment on the se ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseArmy
Narrowband Perfect Absorber for Infrared SensingSBC: SRICO INC Topic: A12aT023
SRICO proposes to combine metamaterial narrowband absorbers and SRICO-proprietary thin film lithium tantalate (TFLT) pyroelectric thermal detectors to produce ultra low cost, size, weight and power (SWaP) room temperature stand-off chemical sensors. Metamaterial narrowband absorber elements will be integrated into the TFLT pyroelectric detector process to provide conversion of radiation to heat, w ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseArmy
Monocular Unmanned Leader-Follower (MULE-F) SystemSBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: A10AT030
The Army has a clear need for a small unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) capable of autonomously accompanying a single soldier or vehicle. Such a UGV would help solve both logistical problems of soldiers needing to transport more equipment and supplies than they can carry in a backpack, and tactical problems of scouting unsafe areas. Multiple designs for such UGVs exist; however, they require active re ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseArmy
Social Media Analysis and Reasoning Tool (SMART)SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: A12aT009
The proliferation of social media technologies has provided a promising new source of information for intelligence analysts. Effective use of this data could provide insight into the evolution of social networks, identification of communication patterns that lead to events of interest, and analysis of relevant socio-cultural factors and trends. However, intelligence analysts frequently have diffic ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseArmy
