  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. Multiple Engagement Autonomous Neutralizer (MEAN) System

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: A10048

    Accurate Automation will design and build a Multiple Engagement Autonomous Neutralizer (MEAN) System that will allow an EOD team to quickly and safely engage multiple IEDs from a safe area. This design exceeds capabilities of any current system because it will allow the technician to preload the system with at least 8 shots, attach it to a robot, drive the robot down range where the device can be ...

  4. High Power Laser Triggered Carbon Nanotube Switch

    SBC: ACCURATE AUTOMATION CORPORATION            Topic: A09179

    Accurate Automation Corporation proposes to develop a high power switch with a laser trigger to minimize pulse-to-pulse jitter. The switch will incorporate carbon nanotube electrodes for long life and high current capacity. The initial design of the switch will provide switching of up to 25 kV DC. The integral control of the switch will allow multiple switches to be triggered simultaneously or in ...

  5. Parallel Kinematic Actuator with Reduced Size and Improved Performance

    SBC: DYNAMIC STRUCTURES AND MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: OSD09H09

    Applications for ultrasound are expanding beyond medical imaging to include new functionality, with the potential to halt internal bleeding or provide an alternative to manual suturing. These types of functions are in some ways suited to a surgical robot, offering the potential for teleoperation or perhaps even autonomous functionality. However, the requirements for positioning an ultrasound dev ...

  6. Weather/Climate Variability Impact on Energy, Water and Food Resources and Implications for Regional Stability

    SBC: Information International Associates, Inc.            Topic: OSD09HS1

    Military planners, humanitarian organizations, and international investors face an increasing level of uncertainty regarding geopolitical areas considered critical to their respective interests. Aside from the normal factors impacting geopolitical instability the nature and pace of climate changes being observed today and the consequences projected by the consensus scientific opinion are grave and ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
