Award List:

Automated Auditory Cueing and Spatialization System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Insook Choi, Research Scientist
Award Amount: $64,085.00
Abstract:
The proposed innovation is a back-end/front-end integration of an authoring system for data-driven audio cues and a delivery system for simulated spatial audio display. The innovation includes adaptive incorporation of the integrated system with existing speech communications, in a real-time… More

Improving Binaural Simulation of Structural Acoustics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Agnieszka Jost
Award Amount: $69,952.00
Abstract:
The proposed innovation is an implementation of an improved, more efficient method for processing individual Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF) data during the process of rendering audio in a structural acoustic simulated environment. Binaural or 3D-simulated audio has been identified as a useful… More

Improving Binaural Simulation of Structural Acoustics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Joel Storckman, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $573,453.00
Abstract:
Phase I showed that the Singular Value Decompostion (SVD) technique significantly reduces processing requirements for 3D binaural rendering using Head Related Transfer Function (HRTF) datasets. Equally important, the Equivalent Source Reduction (ESR) experiments completed show a dramatic… More

Biologically Inspired Acoustic Source Localization System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: University of Wisconsin-Madison
Principal Investigator: Agnieszka Jost, Audio Technologist
Award Amount: $96,012.00
RI Contact: Diane Barrett
Abstract:
Situational awareness is a critical factor for the soldier in the field. An acoustic source localization system can greatly benefit the soldier by detecting threat and displaying its location. The goal of this proposal is to study a promising algorithm based on a biologically inspired technology… More

Biologically Inspired Acoustic Source Localization System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: VIRGINIA TECH UNIV.
Principal Investigator: Agnieszka Roginska, Chief Acoustic Scientist
Award Amount: $749,903.00
RI Contact: Natalie Hart
Abstract:
This proposal is to develop the acoustic source detection and localization algorithms identified as optimal in Phase I into a wearable prototype that integrates a networked sensor array, digital audio processing, position and orientation tracking of the wearer, and aural/visual displays of the… More
