  1. 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 ...

  2. High Hesitivity Magnetic Materials for Magnetic Toroid and Flat Dipole Antennas

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT001

    Novel approaches are needed to improve the performance and reduce the size, number and signature of antennas with significantly enhanced efficiency in HF-UHF. It has been shown recently hesitivity, which is able to characterize the performance of the material and categorize the radiation efficiency of magnetodielectric wire antennas; the higher the hesitivity, the higher the attainable antenna eff ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Perovskite Solar Cells

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N16AT006

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop light-weight, flexible, high efficiency solar cells made from perovskite halide light-harvesting materials for use on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), for use in conjunction with an energy storage system. Solar cells have historically been heavy, costly, and inflexible. In this research, low-cost manufacturing methods will be used to make high effici ...

  9. Embedded Space Analytics

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: N16AT020

    Navy needs a real-time graph embedding tool for analyzing huge graphs (millions of nodes and billions of edges) from diverse sources. However, current approaches cannot provide dynamic and scalable graph analytics to show the military value of tactical data. In this project, InfoBeyond advocates EStreaming (Embedding & Streaming) for scalable and efficient graph streaming. EStreaming promotes big ...

  10. Hybrid Unmanned Air / Underwater Vehicle for Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Mine Countermeasures (MCM)

    SBC: Greensight Agronomics, Inc.            Topic: N16AT025

    A particularly challenging task for the US Navy today is that of Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) of underwater mines; the Mine Countermeasures (MCM) mission. The semi-submersible Remote Multi-Mission Vehicle (RMMV) has emerged as an unmanned solution to handle MCM missions. While the RMMV is groundbreaking, the basis of the technology is a relatively slow-moving watercraft.GreenSight Agronomics, ...
