  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. Manufacturing Assembly Technology for Producing Low-Cost Mini SEMs

    SBC: ZYVEX Corporation            Topic: SB031017

    This program will provide a key manufacturing breakthrough for high-performance inexpensive miniature SEMs. We plan to develop a MEMS, microassembly-based, fully functional mini-SEM having 1/10,000 the volume of current units. Zyvex is a dynamic small firm with a highly qualified technical team, experienced management, and the advantage of a $25M / 5 year NIST-ATP award that is funding the continu ...

  3. Biomolecular Construction of Nanostructures

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Biology provides a vast number of examples of nanostructures produced at a level of precision that is superior to those that we can produce in the laboratory The diversity of naturally occurring S-layers suggests these self-assembled structures aregenetically controlled and can therefore be manipulated though recombinant process. In the Phase I, Agave BioSystems successfully demonstrated that ...

  4. Development of Devices and Subsystems for Application in Future Combat Systems

    SBC: HITRON ASSOC.            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal is a program to develop designs and processes for microwave devices for integration into battlefield microsensor systems and their communication link structures. These devices will incorporate novel materials such as high temperaturesuperconductors (HTS), electro-optics and cryo-cooling features. The devices such as high-Q tunable filters will also achieve ultra-high sensitivity in ...

  5. Novel Method for Ferrate Production

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    New environmental regulations have identified many of the currently used oxidizing agents employed for industrial waste control, disinfection, and wastewater treatment as a caveat that must be addressed. Ferrate has potential for becoming the alternative of choice because of its aggressive oxidation properties and its negligible impact on the environment. However, there has been little industrial ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Novel Single View Passive 3D Face Camera for 3D Face Image Acquisition and Facial Recognition

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Due to the lack of low-cost 3D biometric imaging sensors and effective 3D facial recognition (FR) algorithms, almost all existing FR systems use 2D face images. The result is that they are inherently vulnerable to changes in pose, lighting andexpression. Error rates for existing 2D FR systems in real-world applications are very high when forced to deal with large variations in pose, lighting an ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Mathematical Methods for Video Registration in Autonomous Navigation Applications

    SBC: IMAGECORP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Conventional methods for image registration tend to be restrictive, fragile, and computationally intractable, and not easily applicable to real-time video-to-reference registration. ImageCorp, Inc. proposes a novel approach to this problem, based on thepresent and past work of Prof. Rama Chellappa's group at the University of Maryland and at ImageCorp, Inc. First, an initial alignment is computed ...
