  1. 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 ...

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

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DHP16C002

    Makel Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose to demonstrate an advanced multi-modal sensor system for in-situ analysis of exhaled volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for pilots, divers and field patients. The In-Mask Sensors for Physiological Investigation of Respiratory Exhalation – INSPIRE combines a micro-gas chromatograph (?GC) and miniature ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) ...

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

    SBC: HVMN 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 ...

  4. Handoff Training for Combat Casualty Care (HTC3) Framework

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: DHA17B001

    This proposal is to develop a Handoff Training for Combat Casualty Care (HTC3) Framework.Training is the crux of the handoff problem today. Patient handoffs are a crucial part of casualty care, both in military and civilian environments; and today handoffs are being performed in less than optimal fashion, with ineffective communications accounting for 80% of the handoff errors. Our new HTC3 Framew ...

  5. 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 ...

  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. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
