  1. Indoor Route Following Tool for the Blind

    SBC: KORONIS BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: N/A

    This project develops an effective, indoor low-vision navigation aid, the KBT Indoor Route Following Tool, for individuals with low vision and age-related visual disorders. Individuals who are blind or have low vision can navigate outdoors using a cane, guide dog, or their own low vision as an aid; however, indoor navigation in large or unfamiliar buildings can be very challenging. The use of a GP ...

  2. Improved Hearing Aid Connection to Public Induction Loops

    SBC: KORONIS BIOMEDICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: N/A

    This project seeks to improve on the old hearing aid telecoil technology by replacing wire-wound receiver coils (telecoils) within the hearing aid with new solid state sensors. Improvements in size, orientation, sensitivity, and noise rejection are possible by replacing these existing telecoils with new three axis thin film Giant Magnetoresistive (GMR) sensors. Telecoils in hearing aids have serve ...

  3. Indium Surface Preparation for Improved Flip-Chip Hybridization

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: A10017

    For IR sensors, the sensing detector and readout circuitry (ROIC) are commonly joined on a pixel by pixel level in a process referred to as Hybridization. Hybridization requires bonding an ROIC die and a detector die on a pixel level, where the total number of pixels required to bond and form interconnects ranges from 1,000,000 to 16,000,000 individual pixels. The material of choice for Hybridi ...

  4. Lightweight EMI Resistant Wiring Solutions

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: A10122

    Wiring and connectors are particularly vulnerable to electromagnetic interference. This is in part due to the harnesses that place both power and signal wiring in close proximity. For many applications, the solution to such a problem might be increasing the amount of shielding on the wires. However, for aviation platforms solutions that add weight are typically not viable. Because they form conduc ...

  5. Modular Perfusion Bioreactor for Tissue Engineering

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09H11

    This project will develop and demonstrate a prototype Modular Perfusion Bioreactor (MPB) for tissue engineering applications. While many unique styles of bioreactors have been proposed for various types of stem cell and tissue cultures, there is not a single, easy-to-use device that accommodates the multiple diverse needs of multiple tissue culture types.. In order to take advantage of recent ad ...

  6. Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) Physical Unclonable Functions

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: OSD10A02

    Randomness is required for a variety of computational, statistical, testing, and security related applications. Of particular interest are future commercial high-speed encryption applications, such as high-speed cryptographic key exchange for quantum cryptography. This encryption technology is expected to be coming to market in the near future, and there are currently no commercially available t ...

  7. Bedlam OCU™: Adversarial Reasoning System for Unmanned Platforms

    SBC: Primordial, Inc.            Topic: A10091

    Primordial, Carnegie Mellon University, iRobot, and AeroVironment propose Bedlam OCU™—an adversarial reasoning system for unmanned platforms. Team Primordial will start with our existing state-of-the-art Surveyor OCU, which already fully or partially meets 78% of the topic’s requirements including enabling UAV/UGV collaboration, autonomously tracking targets, predicting adversary movement, ...

  8. SoldierVision: Visual Measurement Based Autonomous Navigation

    SBC: Primordial, Inc.            Topic: A09149

    Primordial, Evolution Robotics and Professor Clark Olson propose SoldierVisionTM: a vision-based autonomous navigation system for soldiers in the GPS-denied battlefield. Existing wearable dead-reckoning devices, relying on inertial measurement units (IMUs) and stride estimates, rapidly lose accuracy as the soldier moves and are currently of limited value for the dismounted soldier. However, recent ...

  9. A Validated Hemorrhage Control Simulator

    SBC: SIMULUTION, INC.            Topic: A09122

    Simulution, the National Capital Area Simulation Center and Combat Medical Systems Inc., propose to produce a realistic simulator for training combat medics to control hemorrhage from the chest, abdomen and groin. This simulator will consist of a mannequin that has a durable base with replaceable blood vessels, organs and skin pads. Organs will be created with pre-made injuries or the trainer can ...

  10. Random Number Generation for High Performance Computing

    SBC: Silicon Informatics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT012

    Highly scalable parallel random number generators (RNGs) will be developed, evaluated and implemented for use in high performance computing on thousands of multi-core processors and general purpose graphics processing units. The main contributions are: (a) design and implementation of new parallel test methods that capture the inter-stream correlations exhibited in practice and complement the curr ...
