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
Information SalienceSBC: DISCERNING TECHNOLOGIES, LLC Topic: OSD11TD1

TALOS User ExperienceSBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC Topic: A13068
With the advanced capabilities planned by the TALOS program comes the risk of the operator becoming overwhelmed by the information available and the operation of the suit itself. To effectively employ the suit in the field, TALOS requires an effective situational awareness display and an intuitive, low-impact way of interacting with the suits physical/sensor systems. SoarTech proposes to continue ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
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
