Small Sample Size Semi-Supervised Feature Clustering for Detection and Classification of Objects and Activities in Still and Motion Multi-spectral ImaSBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF15AT35
ABSTRACT: Toyon Research Corp. and the Penn State Univ. propose research and development of innovative algorithms for classifying objects and activities observed in high-dimensional data, including video and hyperspectral imagery. The proposed algorithms include novel feature clustering techniques to enable effective characterization of intra-class and inter-class appearance variations in datasets ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES INC Topic: AF15AT40
ABSTRACT: Electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) sensors are key to the mission success of future hypersonic vehicles. Although EO/IR sensors have been extensively used for subsonic flight regimes, the hypersonic flight regime creates new conditions and complexities with significant impact on optical sensors. These complexities include turbulent, high temperature gas that is in Non-Local Thermodynamic Equ ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc. Topic: AF14AT09
ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting the external surface of manned and unmanned low-observable (LO) aircraft are time consuming and error prone. Technology that can reduce inspection times and minimize human error will benefit the Air Force by significantly increasing aircraft reliability and availability while reducing lifecycle maintenance costs. To address this need, Intelligent Automat ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force

ABSTRACT: In this proposal a Game-theoretic Universal Anti-RFI Defense (GUARD) framework for Satellite Communications is proposed. Key components of the GUARD framework include i) Radio Frequency Interferences (RFI) modeling and impact evaluation infrastructure, which allows the evaluation of the impact of RFI from various sources, and provides a comprehensive RFI knowledge base to SATCOM; ii) RF ...STTR Phase I 2015 Department of DefenseAir Force
Subspace Tracking and Manifold Learning Based Heterogeneous Data Fusion for Unexpected Event DiscoverySBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC. Topic: AF16AT12
We aim to develop data-driven heterogeneous data fusion approaches for unanticipated event/target detection, which will be more robust and immune to model mismatch problems encountered by model-based approaches. Considering the low intrinsic dimensionality of the sensor data, we propose several data-level fusion approaches based on some state-of-the-art dimensionality reduction techniques. For lin ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
