  2. Dynamic Robot Operator Interface Design (DROID) Assessment, Guidance & Engineering Tool (AGENT)

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    The overarching objective of this research and development effort is to advance the current state of human-robot interaction (HRI), developing a theoretically and empirically-based design science that is grounded in best practices and validated principles of human performance and human-systems integration (HSI). The resulting scientific methodology and design process will support improved methods ...

  3. Improving the Physics of Applied Reverberation Models

    SBC: Ocean Acoustical Services and Instrumentation Systems, Inc.            Topic: N13AT026

    The proposed work will address the core physics underlying acoustic reverberation as related to properties of the ocean environment and properties of the acoustic sources, receivers and waveforms that make up ocean-going acoustic systems of interest to the U.S. Navy. Present day active acoustic system performance models, which contain reverberation models as an essential component, are over twenty ...

  4. Preserving Navigation Access for the War Fighter Development of an Acoustic Marine Life Watch System to Support Corps Channel Maintenance and Enhanc

    SBC: SOFAR Acoustics, LLC            Topic: A12aT025

    This effort is focused on establishing U.S. Army Corps leadership in preserving navigation access for the war fighter through the development and implementation of an acoustic-based sensor system to detect, track, and classify large aquatic animals. The proposed high frequency imaging active sonar system is configurable to detect, track, classify, and alert to the presence of threatened and endang ...

  5. Light-Weight Atmospheric Diving Suit

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N13AT029

    The Navy is seeking a new light-weight Atmospheric Diving Suit (ADS) design. This suit must be less than 400 lbs; at this weight a diver will be able to self-propel using his legs and fins. The system must ensure the divers safety at a working depth of 1000 ft of sea-water; protecting the body from the high external pressure at depth, while providing a sustainable 1 ATM internal pressure. Mide in ...

  8. Visualization, Human Systems, Information Systems

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: ST12A004

    We propose to develop a toolkit and environment for social media visualization, exploiting scientifically grounded design principles embodied in visual thinking design patterns (VTDPs). Much like software design patterns, VTDPs are reusable blueprints for design of new interactive visualizations: they describe the steps in the visual thinking process that capture operations occurring in a computer ...

  9. A Flexible and Extensible Solution to Incorporating New RF Devices and Capabilities into EW/ ISR Networks

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: ST13A004

    The objective of this project is to evolve the RF device ontology developed in Phase I, design and implement a run time prototype system, develop a test environment and perform an evaluation of the approach developed in Phase I. Based upon the findings and success of Phase I, we propose to continue the work on the Dev2WALDO ontology, augment it with necessary concepts, design and develop a prototy ...

  10. Effective Cyber Situation Awareness (CSA) Assessment and Training

    SBC: Sandia Research Corporation            Topic: OSD12T08

    The recent increase in cyber attacks against United States critical assets has greatly expanded the need for effective cyber defenses. Human cyber analysts are an essential element in these efforts. Information overload and a concomitant lack of comprehensive cyber situation awareness are common problems that hamper the effectiveness of analysis. Systems that can carry out human-in-the-loop simula ...
