  • Overview

    This Statement of Work covers the need for student services to provide technical analytical support in the fields of Computer Science, Information Systems, Math, or Statistics (focus on data analysis) for projects within the Naval Information Warfare Center’s (NIWC) Advanced Imagery Analysis (AIA) lab. The purpose of this project is to develop synthetic images of ships in realistic maritime environments using Unity program.



    This work supports the development and training of automated, maritime surveillance systems using modern deep neural networks. These networks require massive amounts of training data (images). Since it is impossible to collect all possible target types that one might encounter under all possible environmental conditions, we augment real-world data with synthetically generated data. In Unity, we can create thousands of synthetic images of these targets in varying environmental conditions. Using larger datasets increases the accuracy of these networks when applied to Navy problems.
