The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  2. Explainable AI to support Veterans Transition Assistance Programs (XAI-VTAP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB163007

    A challenge for Artificial Intelligence recommenders is explaining their reasoning to users. Humans tend to explain concepts with symbolic narratives, which contrasts the way non-symbolic machine learning represents concepts. This research addresses this challenge by grounding the research in the problem of helping transitioning veterans find relevant careers. The developed prototype will provide ...

  3. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: iReprogram, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  4. Transgenic Black Soldier Flies for Sustainable, Improved Nutrition

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: SB163002

    We propose to continue our project generating transgenic insect with improved nutrition for humans and livestock, building on the milestones we have reached and will continue to develop in phase I. We have already demonstrated insertion of exogenous reporter DNA into the insect, and continue to develop genetic engineering tools and techniques. We have expressed the biosynthetic pathway of interest ...

  5. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...

  6. Final qualification testing for myoelectric implant to control prostheses

    SBC: RIPPLE, LLC            Topic: SB142006

    The goal of this DARPA Phase II SBIR program is to evaluate an implantable system for recording myoelectric signals from residual muscles of individuals with forearm amputations. The signals will be wirelessly coupled to an external receiver for controlling prostheses. Compared to surface electrodes, this system will provide: more channels for prosthesis control from a larger number of muscles in ...

  7. Tactical Crossload Planning Tool for Airborne Operations

    SBC: Monterey Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A03070

    The Airborne Planning Application (APA) provides an architecture and framework that enables the incremental addition of automation and electronic decision support to the airborne operations planning process, which is currently largely manual. The develop...

  8. Transgenic black soldier flies for sustainable, improved nutrition

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: SB163002

    We propose generating transgenic insects with improved nutrition for humans and livestock. The primary deliverable for Phase I will be expression of a genetic marker in the host insect and demonstration of enhanced essential nutrients in insect cell line...

  9. Physiology-based Operator Confidence Assessment System (PhOCAS)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    Investigates and explores the solution space for physiologically-based emotion detection within the design and development of a Physiology-based Operator Confidence Assessment System (PhOCAS). The PhOCAS project uses UCF ISTs experience as experts on augmented cognition and physiological assessment for determining user state (such as workload) combined with SoarTechs intelligent systems capabiliti ...

  10. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: ST16C003

    In this project, Sonalysts will team with the University of North Dakota to establish the feasibility of a deployable, unobtrusive suite of sensors and data processing approaches collectively known as Cognitively-Oriented Physiological Indicators of Load, Operational performance, and Tension (CO-PILOT). CO-PILOT will provide real-time indicators of operator state that can be used to inform adaptiv ...
