U.S. Navy contracts for portable camouflaging technology for vehicles

ARLINGTON, Va. Machine-learning engineering company Decisive Analytics Corporation (DAC) has won a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I contract from the Office of Naval Research (ONR) to develop what DAC calls the Computer Learning Obfuscating Adversarial Kit (CLOAK) system, a portable camouflaging kit for vehicles that uses state-of-the-art adversarial imagery though physical-world manipulation and data synthesis.

Under the Phase I effort, is set to select and train two modern classifiers on and commercial vehicles, develop an advanced data-synthesis pipeline, and develop an algorithm for learning camouflage configuration.

DAC’s algorithms will combine advanced 3D with a constrained adversarial generation process that will generate physical-world robust computer-vision camouflage for vehicles.
