SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC. Topic: NGA191011
The development of sophisticated anti-access/area denial (A2/AD) capabilities by our adversaries requires us to develop long range capabilities to mitigate this A2/AD threat. Extending the range of Over The Horizon Radars beyond their conventional single hop operating mode will potentially provide coverage out to 10000 km and beyond. We propose combining existing state-of-the art HF radar ray prop ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: SONALYSTS INC Topic: NGA182001
To address NGA’s requirements, Sonalysts’ team of world-class experts in underwater optical communication proposes development and implementation of the Precision Optical Navigation Transceiver for Undersea Systems (PONTUS). PONTUS will transfer navigation information from an Underwater Navigation Beacon (UNB) to an Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) in an electromagnetic-spectrum-denied (e.g., G ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: NGA182001
SA Photonics’ Optical Navigation and Ranging (ONAR) system is an interrogative system that operate underwater in wavelength range of blue/green (450-540 nm) and enables navigational correction to IMU based dead reckoning navigation. The location based beacons are battery operated and have operational life span of over one year. The system is designed to operate in on demand burst mode so that no ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: SOCOM182001
Traditional munition guidance packages rely on the Global Positioning System (GPS) or laser designation technologies to target an operator defined location. However, if either of these systems cannot operate, whether they are being actively denied by the enemy or from harsh environmental conditions, the guidance package will fail to function as designed. Toyon Research Corporation proposes to crea ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: Tanner Research, Inc. Topic: SOCOM182003
Tanner proposes to develop a dynamic heat pump system with self-contained, rechargeable battery and driving circuit that operates as a Combination Thermal Recycler (CTR). By utilizing thermal reservoirs coupled with the rebreather mask, heat can be efficiently recycled in proportion to the temperature difference between the exhaled air stream and a target inhaled air temperature. No power would be ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: Sea Star, LLC Topic: SOCOM182003
The objective of this proposal is to develop a robust, lightweight and compact device for re-heating and maintaining the temperature of a divers inspired breathing gas when diving on a closed circuit underwater breathing apparatus for the duration of the dive. As a solution, Simuleer proposes to develop the Hybrid Energy Abiotic Thermoelectric (HEAT) system based on a high-power hybrid (i.e. passi ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: SOCOM182001
OKSI will demonstrate autonomous operations concepts for self-guided munition with Fire-Before-Lock-On-Target capabilities and with obstacle avoidance and anti-defilade targets.We will assess the feasibility of implementing the technology in medium caliber munitions.SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared ImagerySBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: 1
On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: SIGNATURE RESEARCH, INC. Topic: 1
Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) and Michigan Technological University (MTU) propose a Phase I STTR effort to develop a learning algorithm which exploits the spatio-spectral characteristics inherent within IR imagery and motion imagery.Our archive of modelled and labeled data sets will allow our team to thoroughly capture the variable elements that will drive machine learning performance.The overall ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
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 ...SBIR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
