Award List:

Data Reduction and Rapid Analysis of Hyperspectral Data Sets

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Paul Cox, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $69,944.00
Abstract:
Hyperspectral sensors offer great opportunities for increasingly sensitive automated target recognition (ATR) systems though a common problem is the lack of sufficient training data. Also, the inherent high dimensionality of hyperspectral signatures requires the design of a hyperspectral ATR to have… More

Expanded Speech Recognition to Include Foreign Accents

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Paul G. Cox, Senior Engineer
Award Amount: $99,983.00
Abstract:
PERL Research, LLC proposes to design and implement a computationally efficient algorithm to recognize a particular foreign accent. This algorithm will map the input speech on to a normalized speech that is highly recognizable by one of the most widely used off-the-shelf speech recognition… More

A Continuous Intelligent Health-Status Monitoring Device

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Paul G. Cox, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $69,946.00
Abstract:
Real time monitoring of patients with traumatic injuries is essential for determination of triage categories, evacuation priority, and required interventions. A portable, non-invasive monitoring device can provide significant field information for first responders and significantly improve… More

Automated Learning Video Analysis (ALVA)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Paul G. Cox, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
Post-mission processing of video data in support of aircraft flight test poses an ever increasing challenge due to the enormous volume of digital data. The enormous data is a resultant of multiple sensors, increasing frame size and video rates. The analysis of video data requires an engineer to… More

Standoff Remote Triage Sensor Array for Robotic Casualty Extraction Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: THE UNIV. OF TEXAS AT SAN ANTO
Principal Investigator: Paul Cox, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $99,912.00
RI Contact: William H. Cooke
Abstract:
Each week, the U.S. Department of Defense provides an online update of American military casualties Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. [DefenseLink] According to this update, as of March 16, 2007, a total of 3,566 have been killed in action and 25,173 soldiers have been wounded… More

Standoff Remote Triage Sensor Array for Robotic Casualty Extraction Systems

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: UNIV. OF TEXAS AT SAN ANTONIO
Principal Investigator: Paul Cox, Senior Scientist
Award Amount: $750,000.00
RI Contact: Bill Cooke
Abstract:
From anecdotal reports of the United State's involvement in the Vietnam conflict, it was concluded that the kill rate for medics was substantially higher than that of regular infantrymen. Although to our knowledge quantifiable data do not exist, it seems likely that the situation is similar today… More

SLeep Assessment Monitor (SLAM)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Paul Cox, CEO
Award Amount: $99,869.00
Abstract:
According to a recent RAND report, of the 1.64 million deployed to date, the study estimates that approximately 300,000 veterans who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan are currently suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or major depression, and about 320,000 may have experienced… More

Medical Capability Simulator Interface Tool for OneSAF

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator: Paul Cox, CEO
Award Amount: $99,975.00
Abstract:
Despite these advances, simulation models have lacked advancement for emerging medical technologies within the operational simulation system most prevalent at Army Battle Labs, i.e. OneSAF (Simulated Autonomous Forces). In addition, there are no combat casualty or patient models within OneSAF that… More
