  1. Real-time Modulated Imaging for Assessment of Tissue Viability Prior to Skin Grafts

    SBC: Modulated Imaging Inc.            Topic: DHA17A006

    There is a lack of quantitative tools to accurately map tissue viability in a rapid and quantitative manner so a surgeon can properly excise tissue prior to grafting. Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging (SFDI) is an optical method that has been shown to be a reliable method for physiology assessment - particularly for burn depth. SFDI measures of tissue structure (scattering) and function (hemoglobi ...

  2. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    We propose to investigate, in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center and Altec, Inc., the application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience o ...

  3. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Sonalysts, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    In this project, Sonalysts will team with the University of North Dakota to establish the feasibility of a deployable, unobtrusive suite of sensors and data processing approaches collectively known as Cognitively-Oriented Physiological Indicators of Load, Operational performance, and Tension (CO-PILOT). CO-PILOT will provide real-time indicators of operator state that can be used to inform adaptiv ...

  4. Nonintrusive Detector of Acute Cognitive Strain (DACS)

    SBC: Quantum Applied Science And Research, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    Modern defense systems place high cognitive demands on warfighters, often taxing the limit of human capabilities and causing operators to suffer Acute Cognitive Strain (ACS), wherein performance deteriorates markedly, leading to a loss of situational awareness and control, and decrements in team cooperativity. ACS leads to physiological changes driven by sympathetic system activation, including i ...

  5. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Cognionics, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    This STTR project aims to assess the feasibility of using laryngeal EMG to detect operator workload and strain. Phase I will develop a wearable neckband device positioning an array of laryngeal EMG electrodes plus additional sensors for measuring masseter EMG, heart rate variability, GSR and estimated relative blood pressure. The neckband will be optimized to be both wearable, comfortable and resi ...

  6. In-Mask Sensors for Physiological Investigation of Respiratory Exhalation- INSPIRE

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DHP16C002

    Makel Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose to demonstrate an advanced multi-modal sensor system suitable for in-situ analysis of exhaled VOCs for pilots, divers and field patients. Our proposed system will combine a micro-gas chromatograph (GC) and miniature ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) for detection of trace amounts of exhaled breath VOCs with miniature solid state sensor ...

  7. Mask integrated Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) sensor for real-time warfighter physiological status monitoring in extreme and toxic environments

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: DHP16C002

    BaySpec Inc., in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, proposes to develop an innovative orthogonal sensor systemthat would be able to detect, identify and quantify the inorganic components of breathing mixes, (i.e., nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, argon, helium, and water vapor), as well as individual detectable VOCs within the exhaled breath in real-time. The Phase I resear ...

  8. Multimodal imaging system for burn injury assessment

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: DHP16C005

    The goal of this STTR effort is to design a portable, multimodal, non-contact imaging system for burn depth diagnosis and tracking of wound healing. UC and Vanderbilt University will build upon our previous efforts demonstrated via porcine model studies to combine results from structural B-mode optical coherence tomography (OCT) images and functional data (pulse speckle imaging- PSI) to classify d ...

  9. Novel Mixed-mode TCAD-Commercial PDK Integrated Flow for Radiation Hardening By Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Cost-effective application of advanced commercial electronics technologies in DoD space systems requires early development of radiation-hardened-by-design (RHBD) techniques, and use of simulations is critical to the efficiency of this process. CFDRC has developed an integrated, mixed-mode simulation approach allowing their NanoTCAD device physics simulator to interface with commercial circuit simu ...

  10. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...
