  1. Multi-Function In-Ear Probe

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA18001

    The nature of military operations leads to high noise levels, exposing personnel to the possibility of noise induced hearing loss (NIHL). Individual hearing monitoring is conducted yearly which can only provide a record of the progression of irreversible hearing loss with limited options for intervention and mitigation. Furthermore, there is limited data that links actual, real-world noise exposur ...

  2. Compact System for Sound Field Testing of Hearing Performance

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA18007

    Hearing loss is the third most common chronic physical condition in the U.S.more prevalent than diabetes or cancer. Globally, in 2015, about one half billion people had disabling hearing loss, or roughly 6 to 8% of the world population. Occupational hearing loss is one of the most common work-related illnesses and the most common service-related disability among veterans. As a result, more individ ...

  3. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  4. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  5. Development of an Automated Vascular Access Device

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA173003

    Vascular access is among the first and most critical steps in the stabilization and treatment of critically injured soldiers and civilians. In the field, where patients are volume-depleted from blood loss or dehydration, vasoconstricted, or hypothermic, traditional peripheral venous access and CVC access becomes exceedingly difficult. We propose a self-contained device that significantly simplifie ...

  6. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  7. Development of a Wearable Bladder Monitoring System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DHA172012

    Soldiers with spinal cord injury (SCI) face a lifetime of bladder dysfunction.Although the type and character of this dysfunction depends on the severity and level of spinal injury, many of these soldiers and veterans suffer from renal insufficiency, frequent and severe antibiotic-resistant bladder infections, and the emotional and social stress of unexpected bladder leakage.We propose that signif ...

  8. MARS, a Maintenance Application for Remote Systems

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DHA172004

    System maintenance is time consuming, expensive, and can cause extensive downtime if done improperly. To avoid improper system maintenance, extensive training is often required for existing systems, with additional training required for new capabilities before they can be deployed. This training often slows the deployment of new capabilities. To address issues with system maintenance, the ATC-NY t ...

  9. Portable Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA08004

    Analysis of nuclear material samples in the field 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 a truly por ...

  10. Agent Defeat using a DWA Accelerator

    SBC: Brookhaven Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA08008

    A new type of compact induction accelerator currently under development at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) promises to increase the average accelerating gradient by at least an order of magnitude over that of existing induction machines. The machine is based on the use of high gradient vacuum insulators and advanced dielectric materials and switches. The system, called the Diel ...
