  1. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: SB103001

    We propose to develop an exoskeleton device that significantly reduces the load the user bears while introducing a negligible metabolic impact. The proposed device employs a novel approach to the issues associated with excessive loading and represents a significant deviation from previous attempts to meet this need. We will develop a lightweight lower extremity exoskeleton for load carriage assis ...

  2. Ka-band Spread Spectrum

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: SOCOM12001

    SATCOM On-The-Move (OTM) is one of the greatest operational and tactical advantages our troops have. The SATCOM terminals available pose a number of practical constraints resulting in less than universal usage. Traditional reflectors are high profile and difficult to integrate on aircraft and ground vehicles. The ability to maintain link during high-g maneuvers such as travelling over rough terr ...

  3. Optical Wave Guide Integrated Weather Sensor

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: SOCOM10006

    ABSTRACT: Physical Optics Corporation (POC) seeks to meet the need of an Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) deficiency by fielding a capable remote expendable reporting environmental sensor that will greatly enhance the AFSOC Special Operation Weather Teams (SOWTs) ability to provide timely, accurate and critical deep battlespace weather reconnaissance and intelligence. SOCOM SBIR 10 ...

  4. Dual Speed Read Out Integrated Circuit (ROIC)

    SBC: NU TREK INC            Topic: SOCOM12003

    Typical imager speeds (30 Hz to 60 Hz) are usually too slow to detect and track hostile fire. To achieve higher speeds, windowing and clustering are used. However, these methods reduce the field of view and the spatial resolution. Nu-Trek is proposing to develop a 2-speed SWIR imager, with optional range finder and real-time hostile fire detection algorithms. The SWIR imager will provide high dyna ...

  5. Digital Storyteller: A Cognitively Accessible Literary Compositioning Tool


    Students and adults with intellectual and other cognitive disabilities have a critical need for accessible technologies that can enable them to speak for themselves in all arenas of life, including academic settings, vocational settings, for leisure activities and for therapeutic purposes. There are, however, a significant number of people in the U.S. whose literacy deficits effectively prohibit o ...

  6. S3: A Game Based 3rd Grade Math Curriculum

    SBC: Virtual Learning Technologies (Sokikom)            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Children who do not learn foundational mathematical concepts during elementary school generally get further behind in math as their math deficiencies compound over time. Through a prior IES SBIR Fast-Track award, the project team developed a series of supplemental math games designed to provide elementary students with engaging, adaptive, and personalized or team-based learning opportunit ...

  7. Soy-Capped Polycarbonate Dendrimers for Tough, Sustainable Water-Based Wood Coatings


    The environmental impact of wood coatings has become a pressing issue as the manufacturing of wooden products such as flooring, cabinetry, furniture and doors moves back to the United States amidst rising labor costs overseas. For 30 years, the bulk of these products have been painted in countries with lax environmental regulations, allowing the use of inexpensive but environmentally hazardous oil ...

  8. Handheld microfluidic device for cyanobacteria toxin detection and monitoring

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: A

    There are approximately 7,000 flares in operation at industrial facilities across the United States. Flares are one of the largest volatile organic compounds (VOC) and air toxics emission sources. Based on a special emission inventory required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in 2007, highly reactive VOC emissions from 28 flares located in Harris County, Texas were 1469.5 tons in a ...

  9. Vertical GaN Substrates

    SBC: Sixpoint Materials, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0000941

    SixPoint Materials will create low-cost, high-quality vertical gallium nitride (GaN) substrates using a multi-phase production approach that employs both hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) technology and ammonothermal growth techniques to lower costs and maintain crystal quality. Substrates are thin wafers of semiconducting material needed for power devices. In its two-phase project, SixPoint Mate ...

  10. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: SB103001

    We propose to develop a lower body exoskeleton device that will enable the wearer to perform super-human running with a reduced metabolic cost. As the carry load and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the soldiers agility is significantly limited and their metabolic cost of movement increases. The proposed exoskeleton will allow the soldier to perform dynamic movements such as ...
