  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. High Density Solid Hydrogen Storage for Long-Duration Soldier Power

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A10099

    Providing power for dismounted soldiers on long-duration missions remains a critical technical challenge. Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells convert hydrogen fuel directly to electric power and offer a lightweight and efficient power source for individual soldiers. However, technology for storing the hydrogen fuel is still too heavy to meet the Army’s mission requirements. We propo ...

  4. Compact Microclimate Control System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A09160

    Protective garments that isolate a dismounted soldier from the environment can also build up excessive internal heat and humidity, impairing performance and possibly leading to heat casualties. We propose to develop an innovative microclimate control system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside protective garments. There are two key innovations: (1) a novel cooling process that enables ...

  5. An Advanced Battery Management System for Lithium Batteries

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A09200

    Lithium batteries have excellent capacity, although they require careful management to avoid catastrophic damage. As a result, there is extreme interest in developing a Battery Management System (BMS) to take advantage of the positive attributes of lithium chemistries. Most of the lithium battery manufacturers have developed various forms of BMSs, each with individual strengths and weaknesses. The ...

  6. Thin-Film Sensor Suite for Measuring Detonation Properties

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A09129

    The dynamics during the early stages of detonation of energetic materials determine the development path of the explosion. These dynamics are extremely difficult to measure, however, since the entire event may last of order a microsecond and the temperature and pressure conditions are characteristic of extreme shock. Fast, high-resolution diagnostic tools are needed to characterize these early sta ...

  7. Portable Mass Spectrometer with Disposable Mass Analyzer

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A09144

    Analysis of chemical samples in the field and in confined areas has many advantages over laboratory analysis. Laboratory analyses can be slow, involve increased expense, lead to additional waste generation and disposal problems, and may introduce errors due to sample degradation or mishandling. In situ analysis mitigates all of these problems. The specific aim of this project is the development of ...

  8. Continuous Voice Analysis of Warfighters at Risk for PTSD

    SBC: RESPONSE APPLICATIONS, LLC            Topic: OSD09H18

    The need for remote, daily or possibly near-real-time psychological assessment of injured warfighters, at risk for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), during their recovery period, is critical given the preverlance of this condition and the need for a rapid and effective medical response. The goal of this project is to characterize changes in human voice characteristics as the psychological sta ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
