Grants and Contracts Details


Exhibit A Statement of Work GeoTransformer: A Multi-Modal Method for Fine-Grained Land Use University of Kentucky (UKy) will participate as a subcontractor to DZYNE Technologies (DZYNE) in the DOD BAA SBIR/STTR 2021.3 Direct to Phase II project titled “GeoTransformer: A Multi-Modal Method for Fine-Grained Land Use”, for the topic NGA-213-1 “Land Use from Nontraditional Analytics”. The objective of this program is to develop a flexible machine learning framework for classifying fine-grained subcategories of urban land by fusing imagery with non- imagery sources of geospatial information. The Phase II period of performance begins 1/1/2022 and ends 6/30/2023. Dr. Nathan Jacobs, who is a Professor in the Department of Computer Science, will be the PI for this subcontract. The total budget for UKy shall not exceed $300,000. UKy shall perform the following tasks: Task Deliverable Due Date 1.
