  2. Near-infrared Optical Biosensor Brain Injury Evaluation

    SBC: Electrical Geodesics, Inc.            Topic: OSD04DH4

    Near-infrared light (NIR) can detect intracranial hematomas with good sensitivity and specificity. However, commercial systems have not proved clinically useful. Early detection of hematomas is important for emergency head injury evaluation. The resulting pressure can cause significant brain damage or death, yet the pressure can be relieved if detected. We propose to create a portable NIR system ...

  3. Speech recognition with built in noise and chatter immunity

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: N04T012

    Two obstacles to expanding speech technology application domains are the limited discrimination of intentional speech from (i) background noise, and (ii) incidental interfering speech, or background chatter. Since 1997, our company IC Tech has been engaged in developing technologies and solutions for speech enhancement towards better speech intelligibility and speech recognition accuracy in no ...

  4. Trainable 3-D Audio Rendering for Enhanced Immersion in Virtual Training

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: N04T014

    The quality of the training experience provided by virtual reality (VR) systems is directly related to the degree to which the range of human sensory modalities is stimulated. Audio cues are an essential for immersion in virtual environments, and also vital for situation awareness for soldiers. Therefore, realistic auditory cues should be part of a virtual training system. Our company IC Tech ...

  5. Microwave Data Telemetry for Marine Container Security

    SBC: INFRARED TELEMETRICS, INC            Topic: HSB041005

    IR Telemetrics builds microwave telemetry systems for transmitting sensor data through narrow metallic passages within automobile engines. IRT devices can interface with sensors and transmit their data to a local receiver network through complex passages as small as four centimeters. Research will adapt IRT core technology to enable continuous communication with marine containers. The performance ...

  6. New High Temperature Pavement Joint Sealants


    We propose to develop and test a new, non-silicone polymer product to resist short term heat exposures in the range of 700°F or higher. This formulation shall be equal to or better than silicones or polysulfides in chemical resistance to both jet fuels, and hydraulic fluids. The material will be weather resistant and will maintain flexibility in all climates. The joint sealant will be designed an ...

  7. Solution for Unmanned Underwater Vehicle Interfaces

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: N04092

    As autonomous undersea vehicles become more widespread in their use for complex missions, the difficulty inherent in deploying versatile autonomous systems at long range becomes more challenging. Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes a system of small autonomous undersea vehicles that are deployed from a larger autonomous vehicle, thereby greatly extending the effective range. To aid in the de ...

  8. Energy Finite Element Analysis System


    New Naval initiatives, like the DD(X) program, impose stringent noise and vibration targets, and require assessment and reduction of noise due to machinery, flow, and propulsion. A typical surface ship structure exhibits thousands of normal modes below 30Hz. Thus, the frequency range of interest from signature and hull vibration objectives extends far beyond what existing finite element based me ...

  9. Probabilistic Error Estimation In Model-Based Predictions


    Modern ship designs can only be successful if the ship can survive in a hostile environment. External threats for a ship can originate from underwater detonations, anti-ship missiles, and even low tech weapons like in the terrorist attack of USS Cole. These threats become even more important as the focal point for naval operations has shifted towards littoral areas, where ships are exposed to a ...

  10. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04004

    Special Operation Forces personnel require a rugged, miniature receiver that is capable of monitoring RF energy while deployed on a mission. The RF receiver will give a better picture of the electromagnetic threat environment enabling a heightened situational awareness, yet the device must be small enough that it does not hamper the SOF warfighter during missions requiring stealth and rapid mobil ...
