NGA tasks DAC to implement machine learning algorithms for analytics programNews
October 12, 2018
ARLINGTON, Va. Officials at the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) awarded DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corp. (DAC) a contract to implement semantic machine learning algorithms for the Advanced Geospatial Analytics program.
Under this effort, by using DAC’s approach the aim is to attain an understanding of a region’s specific terrain and topographical features and then apply additional algorithms to detect change over time.
DAC’s algorithms identify changes in a semantic feature space to provide context and meaning. This approach demonstrates high accuracy and can fuse imagery from different sensors with varying characteristics and environmental conditions. DAC’s machine learning technology will automatically identify significant geospatial changes allowing NGA to prioritize other investigative resources more effectively.
