MK III Upper Extremity ExoskeletonSBC: Ekso Bionics Inc Topic: 739552
As the carry and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the burden on the human body will necessarily increase. In our present TALOS MkIII project, we are developing lower body augmentation to preserve speed and agility while bearing this weight. Yet we cannot ignore the impact of this weight on the upper body: in this project we propose to develop an upper body exoskeleton with p ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Technologies for Rare Earths Enrichment of a Novel Low-Cost Raw MaterialSBC: Physical Sciences Inc. Topic: OSD12T01
A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseOffice of the Secretary of Defense

Recovery of Rhenium from Superalloy ScrapSBC: LYNNTECH INC Topic: OSD12T04
Due to the limited amount of rhenium present in the earths crust (approximately 1-2 part per billion) there is a significant benefit to be realized in recovering for reuse the rhenium from scrap material, spent catalysts, or end-of-life superalloys. Rhenium is found in molybdenum-copper porphyry deposits. If rhenium is present in ore that is processed, it will show up in the resulting molybdenum ...STTR Phase II 2015 Department of DefenseOffice of the Secretary of Defense
Data Driven Intent Recognition FrameworkSBC: OTHER LAB, INC. Topic: NSF13599
A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
