Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Gerald F. Denny
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Scientific Fishery Systems, Inc. (SciFish) recently completed a Phase I SBIR that used neural networks to learn the relationship between temperature and the spectra of broadband returns for a fixed location during a fixed time of the year. This approach relaxes the assumption of the consistency of… More
