The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Advanced Algorithms for Tomographic Imgaging

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: A03-195

    Current LIDAR-based ATR systems generally fail to exploit orientation information preserved in multi-view image datastreams. We propose to transition and adapt a novel technique that FTI developed in 1998 for Air Force high-range-resolution (HRR) radar signature classification to the LIDAR ATR problem. The approach is based on comparative analysis of the temporal LIDAR (or HRR) signatures obtain ...

  2. Automatic Target Detection and Tracking (ATD&T) Algorithms for Small Autonomous Projectiles

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Given a projectile with an onboard imaging device undergoing smooth motion, we can estimate the displacement between the focal plane cen-troid and the desired aimpoint via models customarily employed in video compression to support target detection andmeasurement within small predicted areas (AOIs) of each image frame. Our Phase-I re-search has shown that (1) a prefilter/processor can be applied ...

  3. Automatic Target Detection and Tracking (ATD&T) Algorithms for Small Autonomous Projectiles

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    Given smooth motion of a projectile with an onboard imaging device, the displacement between focal plane centroid and desired aimpoint can be estimated via motion models customarily employed in video compres-sion. This supports target detection andmeasurement within a small predicted area of each image frame. Sensor output compression using an MPEG hardware codec would obviate potentially costly ...

  4. Comanche Survivability and Tactics Expert Planner (C-STEP)

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    "Given the amount and rate of information flow from multiple sensors, other rotorcraft systems, and the complexity of the modern battlefield, the Comanche pilot's ability to accurately correlate these multiple sets of data and make correct decisions will bedifficult if not impossible without automated expert advisor assistance. It is difficult enough for human beings to take into account all relev ...

  5. Computer Algorithms and Models/Simulations

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    "With pressure to shorten acquisition cycles, provide more capability, and reduce costs, the Department of Defense (DoD) has initiated acquisition reforms. One effort that supports these reforms is known as Simulation Based Acquisition (SBA) - a process inwhich DoD and Industry are enabled by robust, collaborative use of simulation technology integrated across acquisition phases and programs. The ...

  6. Enabling Affordability in Science and Technology

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    "The environment within the Department of Defense for acquiring weapon systems is rapidly changing. The defense procurement budget has fallen more that 50% from its peak, and DoD and the services are demanding more performance for less cost. Gone are thedays when new systems could be developed and produced simply for reasons of greater payload, better reliability, more weapons on target, improved ...

  7. Enabling Affordability

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    "The environment within the Department of Defense for acquiring weapon systems has been rapidly changing. Even with the recent terrorist activities, the defense procurement budget has dramatically fallen from its peak, and DoD and the Military Services aredemanding more performance for less cost. Gone are the days when new systems could be developed and produced simply for reasons of greater paylo ...

  8. Analysis and Characterization of Pattern Classifiers

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    "Frontier Technology, Inc. (FTI) and University of Florida (UF) propose to develop designs for automatically-generated statistical pattern recognition systems (GASPs) that can classify uncooperative targets among time-varying natural and manmadebackgrounds. We also propose to analyze the performance of the envisioned GASPs to:(a) covertly acquire feature data (e.g., statistical, spectral, and spat ...

  9. Dual-Use Visualization Tools For Aircraft System/Subsystem Performance Assessments

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    "Modeling and simulation are being utilized extensively for prediction and analysis of aircraft performance, at both the system and subsystem levels. Primary among the challenges of utilizing M&S is that analysis of simulation data requires substantialtime, manpower, and cost to translate the results into meaningful information for rapid system/subsystem design and performance assessment. Since ...

  10. Passive Terrain Following

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: n/a

    "Special Operations Forces (SOF) MH-47E and MH-60K rotorcraft must use the terrain following tactic to minimize their detectability and maximize their survivability when ingressing or egressing on an operational mission. The current terrain following radarfor these rotorcraft can be detected by passive detection systems, does not always display obstacles accurately, and adds 300 hundred pounds to ...
