  1. Indoor Route Following Tool for the Blind


    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


    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. Modular In-Line Water Purifier for MOLLE Hydration Systems

    SBC: Cascade Designs            Topic: A09161

    Addressing the water purification needs of the Army in a lightweight and compact system is not trivial given the diverse range of waterborne contaminants that could potentially be found on the battlefield. Based upon Cascade Designs expertise at developing individual water purification systems for the military and outdoor markets, we are proposing a novel in-line filter design that is based on inc ...

  4. Lightweight Nanosatellite Deployable Array

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: A09120

    We propose to develop a lightweight deployable array to enable nanosatellite-scale spacecraft to reliably deploy large-area solar arrays and antenna arrays to enable these small satellites to perform missions requiring high power and/or high gain communications. Although launch opportunities for smaller scale spacecraft are becoming much more common, the supporting subsystems required to utilize t ...

  5. Novel Growth and Processing of an Extremely High Performance, Low Defect FPAs Utilizing HgCdTe on InSb Substrates


    HgCdTe based IR detectors are used in critical military thermal imaging systems and free-space communication. A key component for stealth defense is the megapixel IRFPAs used for fighter aircraft. A significant aspect inhibiting widespread use of HgCdTe for LWIR and VLWIR detectors is the difficulty of obtaining suitably matched large-diameter substrates. Czochralski grown InSb substrates show pro ...

  6. Development of a hand-held, field-deployable multiplex assay for the detection of Chikungunya Virus (CHIKV), West Nile Virus (WNV), and Dengue Virus i

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: OSD09H20

    Chikungunya an alphavirus, and the West Nile and Dengue Flaviviruses are carried by mosquitoes. While all three initially lead to febrile illness the subsequent clinical outcomes are very different and in some cases dual infections can occur. All three viruses have the potential to lead to fatal outcomes. Knowledge of the particular viruses carried by mosquitoes in areas of troop deployment would ...

  7. Developing a Point-of-Care Diagnostic Assay for Leptospirosis

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A09105

    The objective of this study is to develop a robust, field deployable, and a cost effective rapid screening assay for the detection of Leptospirosis infection caused by Leptospira pathogens using human blood and sera. The test will utilize a lateral flow based immunochromatographic system (dipstick). The proposed assay would be very useful screening tool to assess leptospirosis infection in the fie ...

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: A10AT009

    A compact and efficient fuel processor that provides clean hydrogen from a high energy density liquid fuel such as butanol will allow fuel cell technology to be realized in military and commercial markets for portable applications. InnovaTek, and its proposal partner Indiana - Purdue University, will build on their combined experience in catalytic reforming to develop catalysts that are optimize ...

  9. Indium Surface Preparation for Improved Flip-Chip Hybridization


    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 ...
