Bayesian Belief Network Used in an Early Warning System for Disease Outbreaks

With recent terrorist actions such as the anthrax delivery through the US Postal Service, there is an urgent need for an early warning system for disease outbreaks. Charles River Analytics has created the Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed Information (ALADDIN) Early-Warning System for Epidemics or Bio-terror Attacks. ALADDIN is a system employing a […]

Charles River Analytics Develops Document Image Enhancement System for Army Research Laboratory

Charles River Analytics is developing a document image enhancement system for the Army Research Laboratory. The Autonomous Intelligent Document Analysis (AIDA) system is designed to enhance the performance of optical character recognition (OCR). Although OCR is critical in document management, it is still far behind human accuracy. When low quality documents are imaged in adverse […]

Sensor Management Tool Developed for the Battlefield

With changing operational requirements and mission objectives in modern warfare, sensor management is an increasingly crucial factor on the battlefield. Charles River Analytics has developed the Mobile Sensor Task Optimization and Real-time Management (STORM) system to meet the demands of a rapidly changing battlefield environment. STORM was created for the US Navy’s Space and Naval […]

Scientists Publish Research on Sensor Fusion

Scientists at Charles River Analytics recently published their research on sensor fusion in the book, Frontiers of Remote Sensing Information Processing. In their chapter entitled, “Multisensor Automatic Target Segmentation,” Mark R. Stevens and Magnús Snorrason present a series of algorithms for detecting and segmenting targets from their background in passive millimeter (PMMW) and laser radar (LADAR) […]

Charles River Analytics Develops Truthing System for Evaluating ATR Algorithms

Charles River Analytics received funding from the Air Force Research Lab to develop the Scoring, Truthing, and Registration Toolkit (START) for video analysis. START is a truthing system that addresses problems associated with evaluating ATR algorithms, which can be being time-consuming, tedious, and prone to error. The Department of Defense’s Automatic Target Recognition efforts require […]
