  3. Haptic Feedback Improvements for Prostheses

    SBC: Orthocare Innovations LLC            Topic: N/A

    Haptic feedback improvements for prostheses tactile sensory feedback or haptic is a fundamental element of life.  While vital for interaction with the outside world, current prostheses do not have a mechanism to convey sensory information, making it difficult for users to feel connected to their environments through their prostheses, and to engage in active grasping and exploration tasks.&nbs ...

  4. Periodically Poled Materials for UV Generation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: A09AT008

    Army quantum information researchers have an immediate need for improved stable, narrowband violet and UV laser sources with 10–100 mW output and 10 MHz–10 GHz tuning. These sources are required for numerous ion and atom qubits functions including photoionization, Doppler cooling, state initialization, and detection. The cost and complexity of currently available UV lasers hampers current ef ...

  6. Ceramic Matrix Composite Materials for Arc Light Hypersonic Tactical Strike

    SBC: ANDREWS SPACE, INC.            Topic: NASAX70408

    Andrews Space has shown under a recently completed DARPA study for the Long Range Time Critical Strike initiative that a morphing wing hypersonic vehicle that uses deployable aerosurfaces can very effectively extend the range and decrease the time to target for munitions launched within the constraints of existing launch platforms. The key enabling technology is a composite material that is flexib ...
