  1. Realtime interlinked software for distributed Non-latent N-DOF operations

    SBC: Heron Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB123004

    An architecture for linking geographically disparate N-DOF test beds to facilitate real-time distributed operations is proposed. An industry supported middleware solution, OpenDDS, is proposed as a basis for the required simulation software. A survey of existing laboratory conditions is performed. Adaptation to existing laboratory conditions is provided through the abstraction of simulation requ ...

  2. CNT-Based Electrostatic Supercapacitor for Energy Storage

    SBC: XIDEX CORPORATION            Topic: SB122008

    Qintelix, Inc. proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of a 1 MW scale carbon nanotube (CNT) based electrostatic energy storage system with high charge and discharge rates, high cycle life, and high energy density. CNT based electrostatic energy storage technology will enable a transformational shift from reliance on Lithium Ion battery technology to adoption of a novel electrostatic energy storag ...

  3. Virtual Responder: Blended Reality for Teaching STEM Education and EMT Skills

    SBC: Breakaway, Ltd.            Topic: SB122004

    Our approach is to use the vHealthCare platform to present First Responder training scenarios through a game, Virtual Responder, designed to teach medical diagnostics and procedures. This mobile application will initially be developed for deployment on an Android tablet with a long-term goal of also being available through iOS operating system as well. Both military and civilian presentations of t ...

  4. A Vacuum-Actuated Microneedle Patch with Integrated Reservoir (VAMPIRE) for Minimally Invasive Blood Sampling

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: SB122003

    Blood comprises a comprehensive compendium of biomolecules that is fully representative of human health; identification of specific biomarkers is useful for diagnosis, prediction, and monitoring of health, in real-time, making it the bio-fluid of choice for analytical applications. However, owing to the broad range of biomolecules in blood (10-log orders), the distribution of very low-level bioma ...

  5. High Fidelity Synthesis of Dynamic Social Networks using Measurement-based Calibration

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    We propose to develop a systematic approach of synthetically generating diverse types of large-scale, dynamic and high fidelity social network data via measurement calibration. Social network research needs access to realistic social media datasets for testing social network theory and developing network algorithms. However, the available social network data are either small, static, or cannot be ...

  6. Visual Interaction for Network Information (VINI)

    SBC: Next Century Corporation            Topic: SB12A004

    Next Century and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) propose to demonstrate a combination of theoretically-guided experimental-design, complex data sets, and embodied cognitive models to study and predict design and data factors that influence human performance in complex visualizations of large network data. We will leverage RPI"s Visual Interaction Architecture (VIA) which features an experim ...

  7. Tunable, High-Q Filters for UHF Communications

    SBC: MEMtronics Corporation            Topic: SB12A006

    In today"s dense electromagnetic environment, proper allocation and management of spectrum is an overriding concern for U.S. military forces. The ubiquity of wireless systems places many radiators spectrally or physically near one another, impacting receiver performance through interference or jamming. The dynamic nature of the radio environment prevents precise knowledge of all these interferer ...

  8. Design of Robot Control Interfaces

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    For humans and robots to effectively work together, they must share a common understanding of concepts defining the environment and the relationship of those concepts. In this proposal, we present an approach for dynamic interface creation which takes advantage of a robot-centric ontology. We first define a taxonomy based on perceptions and capabilities of the robot, as well as the input and outp ...

  9. Design of Robot-Operator Interaction for Disaster Situations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    Currently Unmanned Ground Vehicles are teleoperated, requiring operators to be both vigilant and fully engaged throughout the operation. While increasing the level of autonomy of UGVs potentially reduces both the workload and cognitive load on operators, realizing the promise of autonomy is difficult in deployment. Remote operation of UGVs is subject to unreliable communication and mobility chall ...

  10. Microelectrochemical Capillary System for Environmental Analytical Lab on a Chip

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: C

    As part of its mission to protect human health and the environment, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency develops and promotes innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promotes environmental stewardship. Testing and characterization of the environment for potentially harmful contaminants is a costly endeavor. Current technolo ...
