  1. VOC sensor for Real-Time Physiological Status Monitoring

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHP16C002

    Supplemental oxygen is needed by aircrews and divers. However, oxygen use is limited by the onset of pulmonary oxygen toxicity (PO2T) which can significantly damage pulmonary tissues leading to decreased performance among other adverse effects. A real time sensor that is sensitive and selective with fast response is needed to monitor warfighter breath for trace VOC (volatile organic compound) spe ...

  2. Wearable Medical Electro-textile System for the Warfighter

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A001

    Triton Systems, Inc., teamed with an academic partner, propose to: a) investigate the intensity and shape of the electromagnetic field (EMF) radiated by the human body, and b) develop a simulation of the resulting field to further explore the use of the human EMF to predict warfighter physiological status.

  3. Medic-ART: Medics Augmented Reality Trainer

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: DHA17A003

    Navy corpsmen have helped achieve a remarkable survival rate for the warfighters, civilians, and enemy combatants whom they serve. But this success masks significant challenges. Training corpsmen is costly; it addresses primarily the acquisition of skills (rather than maintenance); it fails to convey the perceptual and cognitive skills to handle complex combat wounds; the design of training techno ...

  4. Wireless Non-Invasive Advanced Control of Microprocessor Prostheses and Orthoses

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A005

    There are several current and imminent orthotic and prosthetic (OandP) fitting scenarios that would greatly benefit from the ability to wirelessly collect and transmit physiological information from the user. Both upper- and lower- limb OandP fittings that: 1) use osseointegration, 2) have cable management issues, and 3) could benefit from physiological information from locations proximal to the ...

  5. Non-contact Tissue Viability Assessment (NTVA)

    SBC: Vivonics, Inc.            Topic: DHA17A006

    Selecting the level of debridement sufficient to minimize inflammation and determining the optimal treatment in a timely fashion is critical given the risks of infection and sepsis. Grafting success is dependent on the removal of all necrotic tissue and requires the presence of highly-vascularized granulation tissue. The goal of early debridement for grafting is to remove all the devitalized tis ...

  6. BATTLE: Battlefield Airmen Training Technologies for LVC, ground-based Environments

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF17AT011

    Effective Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) training methods have been underutilized within ground-based training operations. More specifically, Battlefield Airmen training methods have not fully adopted or incorporated recent advances in augmented reality (AR) technologies into their training due to specialized training requirements. To address this issue, the Aptima team will design and deve ...

  7. Target Tracking via Deep Learning

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF17AT027

    To address the challenge of long-term tracking, through extended occlusions and significant appearance changes, we propose to develop DC-CAT, a Deep Convolutional neural network (CNN) based Confuser-Aware high value target (HVT) Tracker.The DC-CAT system will combine a state-of-the-art CNN-based adaptive HVT tracker with a CNN-based pre-trained generic target detector, in a deep-feature-aided mult ...

  8. Novel Polymer-Derived Carbide and Boride Refractory Ceramics

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT26

    Triton is proposing to continue developing a family of preceramic materials and formulations that will produce group 4 (Zr and Hf) carbides and carbide/boride mixtures in good yield. The target yield for the program is 60 vol%. These materials will be used in a polymer infiltration and pyrolysis process to produce ultrahigh temperature ceramic matrices in ceramic matrix composites useful for hyper ...

  9. Composites Fabricated from High Strength and High Modulus Carbon Fibers

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF16AT27

    In Phase 2 project, Vuronyx Technologies in collaboration with Georgia Institute of Technology, will further optimize the composite panels using high strength and high modulus carbon fibers synthesized from polyacrylonitrile (PAN) precursors, and utilize them for aerospace related components.Results in Phase 1 demonstrated the high strength and modulus of the fibers, higher than anything available ...

  10. Flexible Smart Sensor Network for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: AF16AT03

    Virtual EM INC. in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) proposes to develop a highly expandable, lightweight and flexible sensor network for structural health monitoring (SHM) by directly addressing the roadblocks of high size, weight, and power requirements and high communication bandwidth. CWRU has recently advanced the state-of-the-art by developing and testing a custom fr ...
