AIS Division Partners with UHV Technologies on DoD Contracts

Dr. Nick Gans, Principal Research Scientist and AIS Division Head, and his team have continued to partner with local small business UHV Technologies on government funded projects through DoD sponsored Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. The first, sponsored by Air Force and completed earlier this year, focused on the use of artificial neural networks to perform target identification between UAVs. The second is wrapping up its Phase I this fall. Also sponsored by the Air Force, it involved applying novel image segmentation methods for analysis of airborne objects. This collaborative team is looking forward to a new project starting soon sponsored by the Army to use novel imaging systems to detect and classify objects in water.
