  • Publication number: 20200012881
    Abstract: A real time video analytic processor that uses a trained convolutional neural network that embodies algorithms and processing architectures that process a wide variety of sensor images in a fashion that emulates how the human visual path processes and interprets image content. Spatial, temporal, and color content of images are analyzed and the salient features of the images determined. These salient features are compared to the salient features of objects of user interest in order to detect, track, classify, and characterize the activities of the objects. Objects or activities of interest are annotated in the image streams and alerts of critical events are provided to the user. Instantiation of the cognitive processing can be accomplished on multi-FPGA and multi-GPU processing hardware.

  • Publication number: 20190072383
    Abstract: An imaging LIDAR that can observe varied size scene areas with varied resolution as range to the observed scene changes and as the need for information to be extracted from the LIDAR sensor data evolves. The LIDAR operates at a fully eye-safe spectral wavelength, operated under all conditions of natural illumination and operate in conditions of clear and degraded visibility. The LIDAR is built of materials that can operate in the radiation environments experienced in space. The disclosed LIDAR sensor system has small size, low weight, and consumes minimal power, thus enabling its deployment on platforms that are constrained by size, weight or power limitations.

  • Publication number: 20180308243
    Abstract: A cognitive tracking system for objects of interest observed in multi-camera surveillance systems that are classified by their salient spatial, temporal, and color features. The features are used to enable tracking across an individual camera field of view, tracking across conditions of varying lighting or obscuration, and tracking across gaps in coverage in a multi-camera surveillance system. The invention is enabled by continuous correlation of salient feature sets combined with predictions of motion paths and identification of possible cameras within the multi-camera system that may next observe the moving objects.

  • Publication number: 20180275676
    Abstract: A system and method for enabling a plurality of vehicles to be operated as a convoy with the lead vehicle driven by a human and one or more subsequent follower vehicles operated autonomously. The capability is enabled by, 1) the use of a 3D Imaging LIDAR that provides high resolution observations of the preceding vehicle and the surrounding area with sufficient fidelity and timeliness to allow the autonomous navigation of the follower vehicle bearing the disclosed invention, and, 2) the use of a 3D Image Exploitation Processing Appliance that, using techniques that emulate how the human visual path processes and exploits imaging data from the eye, detects, classifies, and labels objects within the observed LIDAR field of view, in a manner to enable autonomous navigation of the follower vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20180128922
    Abstract: The LIDAR system disclosed herein consists of a wide area search LIDAR subsystem and a narrow field of view 3D Imaging LIDAR subsystem that detects, tracks, and recognizes small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles at ranges that enable interference with the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle mission if desired. The disclosed LIDAR system discriminates the detected small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles from similar, but different, observed objects. The disclosed LIDAR system uses eye safe SWIR lasers for both the search and imaging modes of operation. A signal processor analyses the LIDAR sensor system outputs and provides precision range estimations of observed objects.
