  1. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: MERCURY DATA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 121FT1

    We propose to develop an advanced navigation solution for public transportation passengers that will guide them from their origin to single or multiple destination points and across multiple modes of transportation. Passengers will simply need to enter their destination (and optionally a starting point) and the system will select optimal and alternative routes. The navigation software will run on ...

  2. Assessment of Asymmetric Social Indicators using Non-Verbal Vocal Cues

    SBC: Mentio, Inc.            Topic: SB121002

    The objective of this proposal is to develop, implement and evaluate a set of accurate and robust algorithms specifically designed to capture and measure multilateral social interactions automatically through audio-based methods based on asymmetric data design. We propose to accomplish this by: 1) Developing a novel method that uses multiple microphones interfaced with a smartphone and placed on a ...

  3. Development of Biomaterial Scaffolds for Use in Regenerating Muscle Tissue

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD11H12

    Injuries to soft tissues in extremities represent a high percentage of battlefield wounds in recent conflicts. Therapies for restoring function to injured muscle are needed for Wounded Warriors suffering from debilitating and sometimes disfiguring musculoskeletal injuries. Regenerative medicine holds promises of new treatment strategies, yet there remains significant need to develop better platfo ...

  4. Anti-Exploitation Software Protection Systems

    SBC: Siege Technologies, LLC            Topic: OSD11IA1

    State-of-the-art software protection and anti-tamper systems move critical software and data"out-of-band"to the adversary, by using a hypervisor or on"secure"hardware. Unfortunately, the systems running this software are built using untrusted commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) parts. Supply chain threats to critical components, such as hardware or firmware Trojans, have invalidated the assumption tha ...

  5. A Scheme to Reduce Dark Current in SLS FPAs

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA11005

    Longwave infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) based on Type-II InAs/GaSb-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes show good performance at the current time. A key remaining challenge is the reduction of dark current, dominated by pixel surface leakage in FPAs and low minority carrier lifetime in the bulk material. We propose to address the former in this Phase I and develop a unique sche ...

  6. Non-Contact Inspection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112C117

    ABSTRACT: Inspection of machined composite laminate parts is currently performed using a precision milling machine (PMM) to maneuver a touch probe. When performed on complex parts, this inspection process is extremely time consuming and ties up the PMM for longer time periods than the actual machining. PMM throughput needs to be increased to achieve the F-35 FY2017 program goal of one aircraft ...

  7. Low-Cost Hybrid Cryocoolers for Next-Generation Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF112136

    ABSTRACT: Future airborne imaging sensors will utilize next-generation focal plane technology that must operate at temperatures from 25 to 30 K. Passive cooling techniques such as stored cryogens are heavy and logistically undesirable. Current airborne cryocoolers are too inefficient in this temperature range and space-borne cryocoolers are prohibitively expensive. On this program, Creare prop ...

  8. High Range Resolution (HRR)-Surrogate SAR Target Identification

    SBC: Signal Innovations Group, Inc.            Topic: AF112137

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force has invested considerable resources into collecting and synthesizing radar data for training and testing ATC/R systems. Significant cost savings may be realized if these existing datasets may be leveraged for training new sensors and modalities. Signal Innovations Group offers a new paradigm for automatically identifying statistically salient features for ATR systems fro ...

  9. Micro-camera Composite Focal Plane Array for Night Passive Persistent Surveillance

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: AF112147

    ABSTRACT: A micro-camera composite focal plane array (CFPA) comprised of a primary optic and an array of camera//lens modules with high sensitivity, low noise CMOS image sensors provides a low cost, compact solid-state imaging system for wide area persistent surveillance across a range of lighting conditions from full daylight to clear starlight. Applied Quantum Technologies Inc. (AQT) in partner ...

  10. High Conductance Thermal Interface Material for Use in Space Applications

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: AF121060

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I Air Force SBIR program, NanoTechLabs (NTL)will develop a space-qualifiable, high-conductance, thermal interface material (TIM) for use in space-based flanged heat-pipe-to-heat-pipe joints or for mounting relatively small area units with stiff baseplates and high power loads. NanoTechLabs will exploit its novel carbon nanotube vertical array material and manufacturing pro ...
