Carnegie Mellon wins Navy contract to develop improved biometric surveillance


Carnegie Mellon University has won an $8.9M Navy contract to research and develop new algorithms for the U.S. Navy’s aerial and biometric surveillance efforts.

The one-year contract focuses on “basic and applied research of unconstrained resolution, occlusion, pose, and aging-tracking, surveillance and identification (UROPA-TSI) in support of the Special Surveillance Program,” according to the Department of Defense contract announcement.

The research will provide next-generation algorithms and cutting edge fundamental research to solve difficult scientific problems, such as low-resolution, occlusion, pose, and aging that are typically encountered during aerial and biometric surveillance.

UROPA-TSI will combine existing and emerging technologies to dramatically, but unobtrusively, increase the safety, speed and efficiency of biometric surveillance and identification.

Work will be performed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; East Lansing, Michigan; Warminster, Pennsylvania; La Jolla, California; Menlo Park, California, and; Morgantown, West Virginia, and is expected to be completed in May 2017.
