  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. Model Annotation Tool

    SBC: COHESIONFORCE, INC.            Topic: A09131

    During the process of using Model Based Design and Implementation (MBDI), challenges have been identified with the loss of traceability between the higher level model of the system and the lower level implementation. This results in difficulty to optimize the system since feedback from the system is related to the lower level constructions. CohesionForce proposes a Model Annotation Tool (MAT) that ...

  4. Passive Infrared Detection of Aerosolized Bacterial Spores

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: A10AT019

    deciBel Research and our university partner, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)-Center for Imaging Science, propose to develop a dual MWIR/LWIR imaging polarimeter for the detection and discrimination of aerosolized biological spores. The system will exploit spectral absorption and MIE scattering-induced radiometric and polarimetric phenomenon exhibited by clouds of aerosolized biological spo ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. SLeep Assessment Monitor (SLAM)

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: OSD09H15

    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 mild Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) during deployment. The identification of affected or at-risk sol ...

  10. Medical Capability Simulator Interface Tool for OneSAF

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: OSD09H16

    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 can be used to assess or evaluate the effectiveness of a new medical technology or treatment techniq ...
