  1. A Neck Injury Assessment Tool

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP13009

    The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop new injury criteria, model based risk assessment methodology, and a software tool to assess neck injury risk from head supported mass (HSM) loading. Based on the foundation of Phase I feasibility studies, the proposed Phase II work will focus on model enhancement, extension and validation, risk assessment, and software integration and tes ...

  2. A New High Sensitivity High Resolution Sensor for X-Ray CT

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: OSD11H15

    To address issues of sub-optimal performance of current X-ray CT scanners used by the first re-sponding providers to expedite diagnosis and triage, we are developing a novel scintillator that offers a unique promise to achieve high-sensitivity, high-resolution X-ray imaging through its integration into exist-ing CT detectors. The material we propose is recently discovered, and offers exceptionall ...

  3. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods to discern the differentiation state of stem cells are time-consuming, labor-intensive, costly, invasive, and consequently, ill-suited for clinical applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop a microfluidic stem cell analyzer for accurate, non-invasive identification of the cell differentiation state in conjunction with automated cell sorting at high-throughp ...

  4. A rapid and high-throughput microfluidic stem cell analyzer

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD11H14

    Current methods for stem cell isolation are time-consuming, costly, and labor-intensive, and ill-suited for point of care applications. To overcome these limitations, we propose to develop and demonstrate a high-throughput, non-invasive, microfluidic stem cell analyzer to enable a rapid isolation of high-quality stem cell products from clinically relevant samples. Our technology enables significan ...

  5. A Robotic Avatar Interactive Console Enhancing AVESS User Interface Capacity

    SBC: Hstar Technologies            Topic: OSD11H04

    The current AVESS has targeted to creating fundamental virtual world using tools of Second Life and its user interface is limited to 2D input devices. A wide spectrum of interaction will be needed to enhance this AVESS system to further improve the user"s virtual presence with non-verbal interface such as haptic, visual, kinematic and emotional interaction. Hstar proposes a robotic avatar interac ...

  6. A system for augmenting training by Monitoring, Extracting, and Decoding Indicators of Cognitive workload (MEDIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    US military medical personnel may be deployed to a variety of operational environments where their success saving lives depends on their ability to act quickly and effectively, both as individuals and as teams. Therefore, effective training must go beyond individual skills to include interactions among team members, and how those interactions transfer to operational environments. Currently, traine ...

  7. A System for the Collection, Use, Portrayal, and Interpretation of Data (CUPID)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10HS1

    Tactical command staffs supporting counterinsurgency and counterterrorism missions are faced with the need to collect and consider not only traditional intelligence about adversaries, but also human socio-cultural and behavioral (HSCB) information about t

  8. A system to Predict and Analyze Novel and emerging Diseases Enabled by Models of Infection Conditions (PANDEMIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP15008

    Incidences of infectious disease pose serious threats to armed forces worldwide, risking the success of critical operations and can be responsible for the deaths of Warfighters. Current approaches attempt to reduce severity of disease impact to operational forces by detecting, monitoring, and treating infected personnel after exposure, but this does not effectively maintain and sustain force healt ...

  9. ACLAMATE: Automated Cognitive Load Assessment for Medical StAff Training and Evaluation

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    Although great strides have been made in the development of simulators for training technical and teamwork skills, substantially less progress has been made with regard to their assessment. Typically, skills and performance are assessed by an expert observer using a Likert-type rating scale with anchors ranging from low to high. However, such methods are extremely coarse, and often provide little ...

  10. Anterior Eye OCT-based Profiler for Automating Ocular Surface Prosthetic Fitting

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD11H09

    The use of a Prosthetic Replacement of the Ocular Surface Environment (PROSE) device is a revolutionary treatment for military patients that have lost their eyelids due to 3rd degree facial burns as well as for civilians who suffer from a host of corneal diseases. However, custom manual fitting is often a protracted painful, inexact process that requires multiple fitting sessions. Training for ne ...
