Case Studies

  • GEOINT is a key source of important information about human activity on earth. Policymakers, warfighters, intelligence analysts, and first responders each use this information to make smarter decisions, keep populations safe, and protect our national security. Many Government and non-Government organizations support the collection of this information. Riverside Research is among the organizations proud to orchestrate GEOINT collections from satellites.
  • A critical part of successful space-based missions is ensuring that a satellite can attain and maintain its required orbit and orientation. These maneuvers, known as “station-keeping,” rely on precise and repeatable firings of a satellite’s thrusters. For engineers on the ground, calculating and executing these precise thruster burns requires detailed knowledge of how propulsion technologies will perform in space.
  • Intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance platforms such as satellites, UAVs, and autonomous systems must process data in milliseconds to transmit decision-making information to the warfighter in real-time. Timing is critical to their mission; the faster they are able to receive actionable intelligence, the quicker they can take action. Riverside Research scientists are pioneering algorithms to make this possible.
  • Complex mission systems like swarms of UAVs are charged with important missions that keep our nation and warfighters safe from harm. Protecting these mission systems from cyber-attack is critically important. Riverside Research cybersecurity experts are developing new strategies that provide better whole-system cyber protections.
  • Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques to augment GEOINT analytic processing, Riverside Research has demonstrated that analyst time is refocused on deeper analytics while detection accuracy and sensitivity are increased, enabling more effective and efficient intelligence.
  • By utilizing our custom-made ultrasound transducers, a set of image slices that form a 3D image of an embryo can be acquired in less than one minute.
  • Riverside Research is fundamentally changing the cybersecurity game by developing products with its government sponsors that minimize susceptibility, restrict threat access, and reduce exploitation potential.
  • The QUS-based, prostate-imaging methods developed by Riverside Research biomedical engineering scientists pave the way for QUS-guided biopsies that can more effectively detect prostate cancer and also permit targeted focal treatment that spares healthy tissue and reduces the side effects of therapy.
  • With Cobra King deployed and operational, Riverside Research continues to support the program with performance monitoring, mission assessment, and sustainment.
  • Encryption Wizard enables sensitive files to be securely stored, posted on public websites, and emailed across independent networks.
  • Biomedical engineering scientists at Riverside Research have developed an ultrasonic method that depicts the entire lymph node in 3D, using color to indicate cancerous regions.
  • Using Riverside Research’s expertise across GEOINT program lifecycles, we performed an instrumental role in the design, integration, and deployment of hyperspectral assets to meet US military mission needs.
  • As a result of our proposed software modifications, Cobra Dane now collects an unprecedented quantity of valuable metric observation data on the smallest and most difficult-to-track objects in the satellite catalog.
