Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-018
Budget: 06/02/16 - 12/12/16

Current Navy radar-based vessel classification relies on the generation of plan- and profile-view images of each target, the extraction of response positions in those images, and the comparison of the positions to a database that contains the locations of prominent vessel structures. However, reliance on just positional information limits the ca...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N141-018
Budget: 05/05/14 - 11/10/14

The goal of this SBIR research topic is to develop an efficient automated 3-D ISAR algorithm that improves classification and tracking of ships and small boats. The solicitation mentions two approaches that have not produced satisfactory results, particularly for small boats: (1) interpretation by analysts of 2-d images selected from a sequence ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-104
Budget: 10/16/13 - 04/16/14

Naval forces conducting transits through straits and other congested littoral operational areas are presented with a challenging force protection requirement. Surface traffic density is often high, with many ferries, fishing, pleasure boats, and large cargo ships maneuvering in a small area. An important technical challenge for maritime wide are...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-130
Budget: 08/21/13 - 05/21/14

ABSTRACT: TRL 9 compact feature set technology that EMSI developed in the 1990s for aircraft targets shall be adapted to the characterization of both moving and stationary ground vehicle targets. Technology for generation of compact ground vehicle ATR feature sets shall be developed and demonstrated. These compact ATR feature sets will be used...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-143
Budget: 04/12/13 - 07/15/15

ABSTRACT: During the Phase I effort, Electromagnetic Systems, Inc. (EMSI) completed a full characterization of the feature association utility of our TRL 6 moving ground vehicle ISAR imaging technology. This air-to-ground ISAR technology is derived from our TRL 9 air-to-air ISAR technology. Our air-to-ground moving vehicle ISAR technology reli...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-143
Budget: 05/04/12 - 02/04/13

ABSTRACT: Electromagnetic Systems, Inc. (EMSI) proposes to apply our TRL 5 moving ground vehicle ISAR imaging technology, developed under ARFL/RIE SBIR funding, to Non-Cooperative Target Identification (NCTI), target classification, and Feature-Aided Tracking of time critical targets from Air Force WAS ISR platforms. Our air-to-ground moving ve...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N112-090
Budget: 09/16/11 - 03/16/12

Electromagnetic Systems, Inc. (EMSI) proposes to apply the TRL 6 moving ground vehicle radar imaging technology that it developed under Air Force SBIR funding to the classification of moving ground targets from Navy ISR and strike platforms. Our moving vehicle imaging technology reliably produces high-quality, wide dynamic range moving vehicle i...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF081-029
Budget: 04/20/09 - 07/19/11

The proposed Phase II SBIR research effort will continue our development and demonstrations of the synergistic use of spaceborne radar for tracking surface targets through fusion of SMTI between spaceborne and airborne radars. During the Phase I SBIR we developed a multiple hypothesis tracker (MHT), integrated HRR feature-aided tracking within ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF081-029
Budget: 04/22/08 - 04/22/09

The proposed effort will implement and demonstrate novel techniques to significantly enhance the ability of space radar to track surface moving targets through the fusing of target HRR profiles with SMTI detections on multiple space radar platforms. This work builds upon our recent space radar simulation and HRR feature-aided space radar ground...
