  1. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: Nootrobox Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  2. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...

  3. Inhibiting Prolyl Hydroxylase to Mimic Natural Acclimatization to High Altitude to Improve Warfighter Performance at High Altitude

    SBC: Research Logistics Company            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Acclimatization is the long-term adjustment that humans experience when exposed for weeks or months to high altitude. Acclimatization is important in this context because a warfighter who is acclimatized to high altitude is immune to high altitude illness, has superior work capacity, and has cognitive function approaching that found at sea level. In other words, the acclimatized warfighter is opti ...

  4. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    Face recognition performance using deep learning has seen dramatic improvements in recent years. This improvement has been fueled in part by the curation of large labeled training datasets with millions of images of hundreds of thousands of subjects.This results in effective generalization for matching over pose, illumination, expression and age variation, however these datasets have traditionally ...

  5. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: MUKH Technologies LLC            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    Recognizing faces in low-light and nighttime conditions is a challenging problem due to the noisy and poor quality nature of the images.Thermal imaging is often used to obtain facial biometric in such conditions. Thermal face images, while having a strong signature at nighttime, are not typically maintained in biometric-enabled watch lists and so must be compared with visible-light face images to ...

  6. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    The objective of this proposal is to develop instrumentation and algorithms for acquiring facial features for facial recognition in low- and no-light conditions.We will use cross-spectrum matching by exploiting infrared polarimetric imagery which tends to show features that match more closely visible imagery than conventional infrared.In addition to thermal infrared, we will also test subjects in ...

  7. An integrative multi phenotype pipeline for drug evaluation pharmacogenomics and attribute prediction

    SBC: PHENVOGEN LLC            Topic: 300

    PROJECT SUMMARY The process of drug discovery is costly and many promising compounds fail during clinical trials By then expenses upward of $ million dollars per failed drug may have incurred and these financial risks hamper research efforts and ultimately reduce the availability of treatment options In this research proposal we are using systematic approaches to map the relationships be ...

  8. Application of PPODA QT for embolization of aneurysms

    SBC: Aneuvas Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 101

    A cerebral aneurysm is an abnormal enlargement or pouch that forms from a weakened vessel segment in the brain Often going unnoticed and untreated an aneurysm can cause a sudden and catastrophic hemorrhage or stroke Approximately of patients die from an aneurysm rupture even before receiving medical attention and of patients die despite medical treatment Patients that survive typical ...

  9. Oligonucleotide Inhibition for cardiac regeneration in Ischemia

    SBC: Jaan Biotherapeutics LLC            Topic: NHLBI

    PROJECT SUMMARY Ischemic heart disease IHD is the single largest cause of death worldwide A heart attack or myocardial infarction MI results from limitation of coronary blood flow to the heart causing ischemia and ultimately irreversible death of cardiomyocytes The size of a myocardial infarct correlates with the degree of deterioration of heart function compromise of contractile reserve ...

  10. Development of CaSR nutrient therapy for childhood diarrhea

    SBC: Medosome Biotec, LLC            Topic: NICHD

    Project Abstract Acute infectious diarrhea is a worldwide problem especially among infants young children and immune compromised patients Sadly million children die each year not because of the infections causing diarrhea but due to the associated dehydration The pro absorptive Oral Rehydration Solution ORS is the only recommended oral therapy for children with acute diarrhea yet it ...
