  1. Lightweight, Stable Optical Bench with Integrated Vibration Attenuation

    SBC: SAN DIEGO COMPOSITES, INC.            Topic: MDA13T007

    The goal of this program is to design a lightweight optical bench capable of remaining stable under temperature and moisture changes, while isolating the precision optical array from vibrations such as engine noise and air turbulence. By integrating a customizable periodic stack in the bench, vibrations are attenuated more effectively than commercially available mounts. Additionally, the periodic ...

  3. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  5. System to Evaluate and Assess Holistic Aircrew Workload (SEAHAWK)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N16AT002

    The Navy is continually developing new technologies to improve warfighting effectiveness. These technologies risk overloading Aircrews physical and cognitive capacities, thereby degrading performance. To mitigate that risk, the Navy needs a system to assess Aircrews physical and cognitive workloads unobtrusively and objectively. Such a system must (1) perform real-time data collection in a robust ...

  6. TOME: Tools for Objective Measurement and Evaluation

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: N16AT002

    The introduction of new systems and technologies is critical for maintaining superiority, yet this brings with it uncertainty regarding the impact on users, teams, and organizations. Rigorous test and evaluation (T&E) practices are therefore essential prior to acquiring and instituting new technologies, particularly to assess the workload imposed on end users. Traditionally, workload assessment ha ...
