  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 ...

  3. Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB032039

    The Systems and Process Engineering Corporation (SPEC) will develop the Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL) which will use a proven high accuracy phase detected range circuit to determine range profiling to 1/8-inch accuracy. This circuit allows the ISL to operate as a Class I eye-safe device and still achieve the needed range. The ISL also utilizes ultra short pulse lengths, allowing improved signal ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Cognitive Processing Hardware Elements

    SBC: HOPLITE SYSTEMS LLC.            Topic: SB041019

    Hoplite Systems LLC proposes to implement the Soar cognitive architecture within a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). This system, called the RAISE (Reconfigurable Architecture for Improved Soar Execution) will demonstrate that an FPGA's parallel, reconfigurable, multi-clock capabilities enable significantly better Soar processing performance than a traditional CPU. Hoplite will also develop ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. Highly Scalable Low Loss Fast Tuned True Time Delay Module Based on Dispersion Enhanced Photonic Crystal Fibers

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: SB042033

    To provide DARPA with a high-resolution (>8 bits) optical time delay module exhibiting low optical insertion loss (< 3 dB) and fast reconfiguration time (< 10 micro-seconds), Omega Optics proposes a low-loss, fast-tuned true time delay (TTD) module based on dispersion enhanced photonic crystal fiber (PCF) in conjunction with a fast wavelength tunable laser. Low insertion loss of 3 dB is achieved t ...

  9. IQs for Avatars: Testing and Editing Intelligent Agents for Training

    SBC: ONLINE ALCHEMY            Topic: SB041009

    Military training systems require better computer-based modeling and simulation than is currently available. Key to such enhanced training is the use of computer-generated non-player characters (NPCs), or "avatars," exhibiting believable and culturally relevant behaviors in real-time training scenarios. Non-technical personnel must be able to generate such NPCs easily, either as individuals or g ...

  10. 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 ...
