  1. Alternative Transducers for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: MAYUR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: SB031007

    The DARPA Phraselator currently deployed in overseas military operations is capable of translating spoken English language phrases into audible Pashto, Urdu, Dari, and Arabic language phrases. Although usable, the Phraselator is highly vulnerable to typical military environment noise resulting in significant loss of accuracy due to the limitations of existing microphone technology. Therefore the ...

  2. A Novel Integrated Emotional State Recognition System Using 3D Imaging and Thermal Analysis

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: SB032038

    A critical drawback of existing automatic facial expression classification, gesture analysis, and emotional state recognition technology is the lack of integrated and complimentary measurement modalities to perform reliable cognitive and emotional state assessment in operational environment. The purpose of this SBIR is to develop a novel, integrated sensor that incorporates three sensing modaliti ...

  3. Hardware Architectures for Flexible Component-Based Hybrid Cognitive Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB041019

    Creating a realization of cognitive processes, reasoning, and behavior is a challenging problem due to its size, scope and complexity. Current realizations of cognitive systems are software based and typically implemented on conventional von Neumann processors. However, performance is a constraining factor in applications that require extensive testing, training and learning as well as in the im ...

  4. Multi-GHz InP TFT

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: ST041005

    This project proposes design, construction and demonstration of a new type of thin-film transistor (TFT), based on indium phosphide compound semiconductors. Models predict unity power gain and unity current gain (fT and fmax) above 10 GHz for the new TFTs in a polycrystalline form compatible with large-area deposition & patterning on flexible metal foils or polymer sheets, using low cost, large (> ...

  5. Agile Maneuvering Using Dynamic Control Surface Morphing

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, Inc.            Topic: SB043049

    Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi), in collaboration with ILC Dover, Inc. (ILC) proposes to design and develop deployable control surfaces that can exploit innovative adaptive and morphing structures technology at minimal cost and weight to achieve highly maneuverable munitions that can be retasked to achieve new mission objectives. The deployable control system that will be retro-fit capable to the 155m ...

  6. Optical Time Delay Modules for RF Systems and Telecommunications

    SBC: LITTLE OPTICS, INC.            Topic: SB042033

    Eight-bit optical true time delay devices have been demonstrated on a new low loss high index contrast photonics platform. In this proposal the performance (i.e. loss and speed) of high-index monolithically integrated programmable delay circuits will be optimized and systems research will be conducted to select complementary components to realize practical systems. High index glass planar lightwa ...

  7. Miniature Reaction Wheels an Enabling Technology for High Performance Nanosatellites

    SBC: Maryland Aerospace, Inc.            Topic: SB032051

    Current nanosatellite designs are limited by the lack of small, low cost attitude sensing and control components. Although activities are underway to develop sensor technologies, precision pointing and agility also requires miniature reaction wheels. Presently no such wheels exist. We propose to develop a wheel that fills this void, enabling nanosatellites to perform an array of missions requir ...

  8. Pulse width modulated servo valve enabled by single crystal piezoelectric

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB032033

    Active Signal Technologies and Moog propose to demonstrate a solid state pulse width modulated pilot stage for a servo valve enabled by single crystal PMN-PT. The basic mechanism and labor intensive fabrication processes used to build conventional servo valves remain largely unchanged since the device was launched in 1951, resulting in high cost and limited bandwidth. A digitally controlled valv ...
