Bookmark Buyandsell.gc.ca/tenders now to be ready for June 1! The objectives of the work are: Firstly, the contractor will perform a review on existing literature on automatic target cueing (ATC) in visible and infrared spectrum methodologies and technologies based on imagery. Based on the requirement, to perform studies and analysis to determine the feasibility of performing highly accurate ATC in visible and infrared spectrum in military operations. The military operations are (i) ATC in small arm operations at standoff distance up to 600m; and (ii) short range ATC at standoff distance below 100m. Secondly, the contractor will perform a review on existing literature on in visible spectrum facial recognition methodologies and technologies based on imagery. Based on the requirement, to perform studies and analysis to determine the feasibility of performing highly accurate in visible spectrum facial recognition in military operations. The military operations are short range facial recognition for personnel identification at standoff distance below 100m. Furthermore, DRDC will select at least one product for each of the following: ATC in infrared ATC in visible Facial recognition in visible The contractor will test the performance and truthing of these products against video sequences of various difficulties provided by DRDC. The contractor will also provide software and algorithm development support for implementing an auto target cueing (ATC) application in both visible and infrared for small arms applications. No facial recognition algorithm is developed in this contract. For that purpose, the contractor is to improve, modify and optimize the ATC algorithms that were developed under the "Portable EO Surveillance System with Auto-Targeting Capabilities" project. Some tradeoffs on performance will be considered for achieving objectives. Background Under the mandate of Future Small Arms Research (FSAR) project, DRDC will examine existing and future technologies for small arm capabilities with the objective of identifying technologies which could increase shot placement accuracy and reduce engagement time under various situations. These technologies include weapon, ammunition, positioning systems, optics and electro-optics. A series of studies on these subjects will be performed, some of which may involve literature survey, simulation and modelling, and experiments with modules and systems in lab and field, and user trials, etc. Client department The services will be rendered to Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC-Valcartier).
