About Signal Innovations Group

Dr. Paul Runkle and Professor Larry Carin founded SIG in 2004 to continue and extend applied defense research that originated in an academic setting at Duke University. SIG’s initial work focused on radar signal processing for combat target identification, sonar‐based automatic target recognition (ATR), and airborne minefield detection. SIG’s application areas quickly grew to include unexploded ordnance (UXO) detection, IED detection, and video image analysis including target detection, tracking, classification, and activity models. To address a critical customer need across multiple applications, SIG has also developed Analyst‐in‐the‐Loop (AIL) technologies that enable algorithms to utilize operator or analyst feedback to enhance the performance of their models. This approach leverages the speed and consistency of an algorithm, with the accuracy and contextbased decisions that can be provided by an analyst or warfighter.

Why Choose Signal Innovations Group?

SIG continues to evolve its core technologies and apply them to many different problems to national security, public safety, and commercial surveillance. Our solutions help people make sense of vast amounts of data associated with a broad range of disciplines.

SIG innovates new technologies and synthesizes applied solutions that can be transitioned to prototypes for test and evaluation. Such innovation and synthesis is core to SIG’s continued success with an array of government customers and industry partners in National Security, Public Safety, and Commercial Surveillance. SIG engages on government contracts from a wide range of agencies including Office of Naval Research, Air Force Research Laboratory, Naval Surface Warfare Center, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), Army Research Office, U.S. Army Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate, Naval Research Laboratory, and The Environmental Security Technology Certification Program.

SIG is an experienced partner in developing advanced decision systems for multiple sensor and data types. Our senior technical development leadership has significant experience serving on large integration teams to ensure success in joint architecture development, software interface development and integration, and test and evaluation.

Optensity Success Stories


National Security

Airborne ISR: SIG’s Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination (PED) software suite can be deployed on real‐time SWaP (size, weight, and power) constrained platforms. The software has been developed using a multi‐thread parallel architecture to meet processing requirements for both large wide area motion imagery (WAMI) and for full motion video systems.

Tactical Target Recognition: SIG’s target recognition software suite offers a combination of stateof‐ the‐art detection, classification, and identification techniques that can be tailored to anyapplication space. The software contains multiple statistical data models within a flexible and modular architecture that is readily optimized for any sensor modality, including the fusion of multiple sensors. The software can be configured for onboard integration with manned or unmanned platforms to provide real‐time processing or delivered as stand‐alone modules to support analysts and post‐mission objectives.

Cyber Security:SIG’s hierarchical security assessment algorithms can be deployed to determine risk in a variety of security environments. The algorithms scale to the analysis of systems with hundreds of elements, each facing dozens of threats. The resulting probabilistic threat assessments have been found to accurately characterize system risk profiles, allowing an analyst to adjust protections of security domains, including network security, sensor networks and intellectual property protections against reverse engineering.

Multi‐Source Intelligence: SIG’s multi‐source intelligence analysis suite of tools offer a combination of state‐of‐the‐art natural language processing, search, and network modeling techniques that can be tailored to any application space. The suite of tools includes a variety of statistical models in a flexible and modular architecture that can be optimized for any search or knowledge‐understanding problem, including everything from the analysis of text reports to the understanding of cyber‐security threats.

Public Safety

Fixed Camera Security: SIG’s fixed‐camera video analytics software suite can be deployed for real‐time analysis of surveillance video. The software incorporates a multi‐thread parallel architecture to provide a solution that scales well for large multi‐camera video surveillance systems. The alert types (e.g., abnormal motion, checkpoint evasion) are configurable to address the specific surveillance goals of individual customers and camera installations. In addition, the sensitivity of the system can be adjusted to control the frequency of alerts. Depending on the number of simultaneous videos streams, the software can be installed onto a desktop workstation or a rack server for larger systems.

Mobile Analytics: SIG offers real‐time image stabilization, tracking, target classification, and normalcy modeling in a PC‐based form factor. ALPR wide‐field of view multi‐purpose color cameras are used to provide robust license plate recognition in multiple scenarios. The solution is robust to variations in state plates and custom plates. SIG’s mobile analytics platforms can be used with a variety of standard digital camera formats and can be integrated with a wide range of existing mobile platform and back‐office configurations.

Signal Innovations Group Success Stories

SIG Awarded Phase II SBIR contract with the Army to develop a modular data processing architecture
25 August 2011
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Signal Innovations Group (SIG) was awarded a Phase II Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract with the Army. Under the newly awarded effort, SIG will build upon the progress of the Phase I and Phase I Option to develop a modular data processing architecture that provides adaptability to changing operating environments and target and clutter types through the use of semi‐supervised multi‐task learning (MTL) and human‐in‐theloop (HIL) active learning (AL), as applied to both elevated and airborne sensor systems.
Leveraging innovative commercial technology to bring about sophisticated solutions for resolving complex challenges.
