MARLBOROUGH, Mass., July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Block MEMS, a leading developer of Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) based infrared detection systems, has been awarded a $9.8M contract from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) to develop a system that can detect trace quantities of chemicals at standoff distances of at least 100 ft.

The intelligence community and the private sector have launched dozens of satellites that capture sharp images of Earth from every angle. But two-dimensional photos don’t always give every detail.

The multi-view stereo 3D mapping challenge — hosted by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) — aims to bring the broader research community together in order to find a way to accurately produce 3D mapping from satellite photos.

With the flood of information pouring in from sensors and other sources, the Intelligence Community is looking for algorithms that not only can sift through all that data but use it to think ahead. The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity is seeking proposals in a four technical categories the agency is not currently addressing: anticipatory intelligence, analysis, operations and collection.
