Award List:

WITH RECENT ADVANCES IN ROBOTICS AND THE CONTINUING DEVELOPMENT OF MICROPROCESSOR-CONTROLLED SERVO-MECHANISMS, TELEOPERATED SYSTEMS ARE BECOMING INCREASINGLY FEASIBLE FOR APPLICATIONS IN OUTER SPACE.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1983 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Andrew d. lecocq , PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
With recent advances in robotics and the continuing development of microprocessor-controlled servo-mechanisms, teleoperated systems are becoming increasingly feasible for applications in outer space. one of the more advanced interface devices employed for effective teleoperator control is a 3-d… More

BRAIN WAVE MEASURES OF WORKLOAD IN THE ADVANCED COCKPIT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1983 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Richard L. Horst
Award Amount: $50,000.00

BRAIN WAVE MEASURES OF WORKLOAD IN THE ADVANCED COCKPIT

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Richard L. Horst
Award Amount: $425,000.00
Abstract:
It is widely recognized that behavioral measures of workloadare inadequate. event-related potentials (erps) recorded from the human scalp are a promising alternative in that they have been shown to reflect selective attention, expectancies, and decision-making processes. most previous erp studies of… More

INFORMATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1984 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Robert c. munson , INVESTIGATOR
Award Amount: $49,966.00
Abstract:
Polar graphic displays present quantitative information about a system's parameters at the nodes of a geometric figure. by taking advantage of human pattern recognition capabilities, this display concept may enhance operator's ability to rapidly assess system status. the present research addresses… More

AURAL PROCESSED SIGNALS FOR MINE DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1985 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Dr Eugene B Silverman
Award Amount: $49,996.00

CAREER INFORMATION AND GUIDANCE SYSTEMS TO ENHANCE RECRUITMENT AND RETENTION OF ROTC CADETS FOR ARMY CAREERS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1987 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Paul g banikiotes
Award Amount: $49,929.00
Abstract:
Career information and guidance systems are especially important in affecting the perceptions of careers and decisions individuals make regarding the career directions that they pursue. the positive perception of a career as an army officer can greatly enhance the possibilities of attracting and… More

AURAL PROCESSED SIGNALS FOR MINE DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Dr Eugene B Silverman
Award Amount: $271,000.00
Abstract:
The detection and classification of underwater objects, such as mines, by means of acoustic sensors is of considerable practical significance. unfortunately, many recent attemps to develp signal processing techniques to accomplish this automatically have enjoyed only limited success. recently, a… More

EXTRACTION OF EVENT-RELATED POTENTIALS FROM ONGOING EEG

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $50,000.00
Abstract:
The usefulness of event-related brain potentials (erps), both as a research tool for the study of cognitive processesand for applications in clinical and operational settings, is limited by the need to signal average over multiple occurrences of the event of interest and by the consequent need for… More

UNOBTRUSIVE REAL-TIME MONITORING OF PILOT MENTAL STATUS: DEVELOPMENT OF A TEST-BED SYSTEM

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1988 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr richard l horst
Award Amount: $49,981.00
Abstract:
The real-time determination of pilot mental status is a critical feature of the workload monitoring and mindware subsystems that have been envisioned for future fighter aircraft, including the virtualworld super-cockpit. recent laboratory and simulator studies, some conducted by ard, have suggested… More
