Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-034
Budget: 05/31/11 - 05/31/13

ABSTRACT: The doctrine of battlefield Information Dominance has led to a proliferation of imaging platforms, especially in UASs, leading to a deluge of image/video gathering capability. Yet burgeoning sensor data acquisition is dramatically outpacing downlink capability, which voids the utility of sensor data. Methods to improve the performance...

Topic: N09-T019
Budget: 07/14/09 - 04/30/10

The relatively opaque and inhospitable ocean medium presents unique and formidable challenges for the task of sensing & recognizing underwater objects. Impenetrable to most forms of electromagnetic radiation, the sea yields a glimpse of its hidden structure mainly through acoustic and optical means, which is the reason that sonar sensors and opt...

ATR has traditionally been the domain of expensive, one-of-a-kind, high-resolution sensors (whether EO/IR, SAR, HSI, HRR, or other) - along with distinctly high-performance, one-of-a-kind processing capability (racks of workstations/boards). Examples include JointStars, WarHorse, and SHARP. With planned deployment of swarms of smaller (or miniat...

Topic: N04-112
Budget: 04/24/06 - 03/17/10

It has long been known that (aided) target recognition based on imaging sensors is fundamentally limited by the number of pixels on the target imaged. Very roughly, at least 10 pixels are needed for detection, at least 100 are needed for generic classification, and perhaps 1000 are needed for recognition. While the details of this structure depe...

Topic: N03-173
Budget: 09/12/05 - 09/12/07

Video data compression is a powerful enabling technology for surveillance applications. It permits the transmission of high data-volume video surveillance data in real-time or near real-time, by encoding the data in an efficient compressed format, to be reconstructed at the receiver. We use the latest generation ITU/ISO H.264/AVC standard to a...

Topic: N02-053
Budget: 03/12/04 - 03/11/06

FastVDO will continue undertaking the research and development of advanced mathematical algorithms for electro-optical and infrared target recognition for insertion in the Navy Shared Reconnaisance Pod (SHARP). The suite of algorithms being developed on this contract will exploit a variety of advances in the fields of signal decompositions, shap...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N03-173
Budget: 12/19/03 - 06/19/04

Transmitting voluminous image/video signals over channels orders of magnitude lower in data rate thus requires the latest advances in compression technology as a fundamental enabler. This is especially true for video communications over wireless links that often support data rates as low as 16 kbps - one needs more than 50,000:1 compression! For...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-095
Budget: 11/21/03 - 11/21/05

FastVDO LLC will research and develop advanced mathematical algorithms for electro-optical and infrared sensor-fusion based target recognition. We will further investigate the value of acoustic sensor ATR and information fusion with the video sensors. The objective is to develop a helmet-mounted sensor-fusion ATR system. The suite...
