Synopsis The DIVA program seeks to develop robust automatic activity detection for a multi-camera streaming video environment. Activities will be enriched by person and object detection. DIVA will address activity detection for both forensic applications and for real-time alerting.
AIM is a set of software tools designed to improve, streamline, and automate certain aspects of the development and maintenance of Navy training materials. The Navy uses three different approaches for the development of training materials: Personnel Performance Profile (PPP), Task-Based, and Competency/Skills-Based. AIM I supports the PPP approach to training material development, AIM II supports the Task-Based approach, and AIM Content Planning Module (CPM)/Learning Object (LO) Module supports a Competency Skills-Based or Integrated Learning Environment (ILE) approach. These tools allow for more efficiency and responsiveness in the production and life cycle maintenance of training materials to Navy training activities and to other organizations external to the Navy. AIM also optimizes the process of instructional development and standardizes the training materials by automating the format and standards promulgated in various military and commercial training design/ development standards. AIM I, II, and CPM/LO Module all operate in the Microsoft MS Windows environment to provide a graphical user interface. AIM access is currently provided from a centralized government hosted environment where users can access the AIM software and database from geographically dispersed locations. This AIM Central Site effort provides AIM software access and related data to an increasingly wider Navy audience while facilitating data integrity and concurrency. For those users who are not able to access the centralized environment, standalone instances of the AIM software are still in use. CPM is web-based and current plans for the AIM project includes the eventual suspension of the AIM I and II applications, and the merging of the LO Module with CPM for a fully web-based AIM application.
ONR has a broad reaching science and technology portfolio supporting autonomous systems. There have been programs related to unmanned air vehicles, underwater vehicles, sea-surface vehicles, and ground vehicles. These efforts have involved fundamental autonomy that is domain agnostic, various sensing approaches, robotics, and kinematics. Research programs have involved both single platform automation and collective behaviors of multiple unmanned platforms. These programs have typically been single domain (air, land or sea) in a relatively homogeneous environment. ONR is now interested in exploring science and technology approaches to support a range of amphibious operations that take advantage of low-cost multi-domain (sea and land) unmanned systems. ONR envision developing autonomous amphibians that will maneuver (individually and collectively) through the surf zone and emerge and navigate ashore. ONR anticipate leveraging the vast body of domain agnostic autonomy research that has been done to date and evolve it to address the stressing multi-domain environment. Moreover, ONR is interested in the unique Science and Technology (S&T) required to autonomously maneuver, sense, and communicate in the challenging sea-land interface in varied shore environments including surf, urban, mud-flats, rocky beach, beach with obstacles, and beach vegetation such as mangroves. Please note - this BAA requires white papers. See attached full announcement for deadlines and further details.
The technologies necessary to achieve the above goal must enable the production of parts with predictable and consistently reproducible mechanical properties, microstructural characteristics, and geometric tolerances. The envisioned system as delivered would include (i) ICME based M&S design tools, (ii) in situ process/inspection sensors and (iii) AM process control system improvements. The intent of the Quality Made program is to advance the technological maturity of the system components from a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3/4 to TRL 6, with the latter including the installation of the system at a Navy Depot and a part production demonstration of the technologies in the Depot Maintenance environment.
