The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Information
Exploitation Office (IXO), announces a Briefing to Industry (BTI) associated
with the intended release of Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) 07-13, the
Urban Reasoning and Geospatial Exploitation Technology (URGENT) Program.
The purpose of the BTI is to outline the URGENT Program technical goals and
problems to potential Proposers.  All presented materials will be made
available via Internet when the BAA 07-13 is published, along with a FAQ
including all questions and answers.  The BTI is scheduled for Thursday, 1
February 2007, and will be held in Arlington, VA, from 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM.
Detailed information about the BTI may be found at:
http://www.schafertmd.com/URGENT2007. A no-cost, pre-registration for the
BAA 07-13 BTI is required.  A list of attendees, including name,
organization, phone number, and (optionally) specific teaming interest will
be posted at that URL.  The deadline for the BTI pre-registration is 25
January 2007.  The full BAA 07-13 solicitation is anticipated to be released
on or about 24 January 2007 through FedBizOpps.     Attendance is not
required to propose to the BAA 07-13. Similarly, attendance will have no
direct bearing on proposal evaluations.    (01)

The URGENT program will develop techniques for the rapid exploitation of EO
and LIDAR sensor data at the city scale (100s square kilometers) to
recognize urban objects down to the soldier scale (<1 cubic meters).  URGENT
will apply image processing technology to geospatially registered 2D/3D data
collected from airborne and terrestrial sources, yielding precise
annotations for the objects in an urban area.  Traditional pattern
recognition systems, biologically inspired computer vision technology, and
machine learning algorithms are among the approaches of interest to the
URGENT program.  The URGENT goal is to achieve a 100x increase in analyst
productivity with equal or better accuracy compared to the unassisted human
image analyst.    (02)
