In this work, we present a new vision-based cross-view geo-localization solution matching camera images to a 2D satellite/ overhead reference image database. We present solutions for both coarse search for cold start and fine alignment for continuous refinement.

Cross-View Visual Geo-Localization for Outdoor Augmented Reality
We address the problem of geo-pose estimation by cross-view matching of query ground images to a geo-referenced aerial satellite image database. Recently, neural network-based methods have shown state-of-the-art performance in cross-view matching.
On auxiliary latitudes
The auxiliary latitudes are essential tools in cartography. This paper summarizes methods for converting between them with an emphasis on providing full double-precision accuracy.
Autonomous Docking Using Learning-Based Scene Segmentation in Underground Mine Environments
This paper describes a vision-based autonomous docking solution that moves a coalmine shuttle car to the continuous miner in GPS-denied underground environments.
Ranging-Aided Ground Robot Navigation Using UWB Nodes at Unknown Locations
This paper describes a new ranging-aided navigation approach that does not require the locations of ranging radios.
Geodesics on an Arbitrary Ellipsoid of Revolution
The present paper seeks to extend the treatment to arbitrary ellipsoid (in this paper, the term “ellipsoid” should be understood to mean “ellipsoid of revolution”).
Augmented Reality for Marine Fire Support Team Training
To provide FiSTs with the “sets and reps” required to develop and maintain proficiency, the Office of Naval Research 3D Warfighter Augmented Reality (3D WAR) program is developing an affordable augmented reality (AR) field simulator.
Optimized Simultaneous Aided Target Detection and Imagery based Navigation in GPS-Denied Environments
We describe and demonstrate a comprehensive optimized vision-based real-time solution to provide SATIN capabilities for current and future UAS in GPS-denied environments.
Cross-View and Cross-Modal Visual Geo-Localization for Augmented Reality and Robot/ Vehicle Navigation Applications
We will present methods and results for estimation of geo-location and/ or orientation for dismounts and platforms for wide area, outdoor augmented reality and other applications under GPS denied/ challenged conditions.
