  1. Maximizing Sleep Quality and Efficiency using Neurotechnology

    SBC: ADVANCED BRAIN MONITORING, INC.            Topic: SB072006

    Military operations require sustained cognitive performance in challenging environments. Situational awareness, vigilance, memory, decision-making, and other neurocognitive processes are all impacted by poor sleep quality, sleep deprivation and accumulating sleep debt with potentially detrimental consequences. Although efficient amelioration of the effects of sleep deprivation or accumulated sleep ...

  2. Increasing Independence after Brain Injury with Autonomous Sensing, Planning, and Cueing

    SBC: Attention Control Systems            Topic: SB072011

    Our objective is to demonstrate the feasibility and merit of a cognitive aid that monitors the user"s situation to provide cues based on state conditions instead of pre-scheduled cues which are based only on time. We extend a commercially available cognitive aid to use condition-based cues which are responsive to the user"s changing situation. Context-aware cognitive aids which adjust to the user" ...

  3. P-POD and RocketPod on Steroids

    SBC: Ecliptic Enterprises Corporation            Topic: ST061011

    This research leads to improved and enhanced versions of the Cal Poly P-Pod and Ecliptic RocketPod cubesat-class (picosat) carrier/deployment systems designed for frequent, recurring use onboard EELV-class U.S. launch vehicles starting in 2008. Enhancements include more robust environmental qualification levels, standardized interfaces with the host platform, leveraging of available host platform ...

  4. Micro-Actuated Optics for Wide Field-of-View (FOV) Imaging with Random-Access Optical Zoom Capability

    SBC: HOLOCHIP CORPORATION            Topic: SB072025

    Presently, scanning and zooming of imaging optics is achieved with bulky mechanical gimbals or using multiple focal plane arrays and associated optics to cover the wide field of view. These approaches are not only expensive in terms of power, size and weight, but also costly. Alternatively, the use of liquid crystal (LC) lenses, LC spatial light modulators and LC scanners in zooming and scanning s ...

  5. Reliable MEMS Ka-Band Filters

    SBC: Innovative Micro Technology            Topic: SB072026

    Novel design for MEMS RF varactor developed in Phase I is to be used in the design of a tunable filter for the diplexer module of a Communications Data Link (CDL). Presently, the diplexer function is handled by filter banks which are selected based on whether the unit is functioning in transmission or reception mode. The MEMS devices set and select the filter attributes for the diplexer, so that ...

  6. High Fidelity Virtual Reality Driving Rehabilitation After Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: MBFARR LLC            Topic: SB072011

    Development proposal of a concept prototype for a NEW type of high fidelity virtual reality driving rehabilitation trainer is proposed for brain injured military personnel. The TBI Model T3 rehabilitation trainer will teach a graduated difficulty lesson plan of operational, tactical and strategic driving skills wrapped in a NASCAR race simulation to maximize training motivation and trainee attent ...

  7. Very High Altitude Aircraft Propulsion Engines

    SBC: M-DOT Aerospace            Topic: SB072045

    M-DOT Aerospace proposes to team with Mezzo Technologies of Baton Rouge LA and Dr. Hui Wang of the USC, LA and conduct a series of tests and analyses that address all currently perceived critical-path technologies of a 36 kW high-altitude power system design generated in Phase I for the Rapid Eye program. A representative section of the engine will be fabricated and tests conducted to evaluate pe ...

  8. Fatigue Crack Prognostics by Optical Quantification of Surface Roughness

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: SB072003

    Reliable and operationally simple methods that can be used in the field are needed for observationally-based prognosis of remaining fatigue life. Previous work in the fatigue literature and at MetroLaser has shown that surface roughness can be a key indicator of the fatigue state of a component and that light scattering measurement is a convenient method for characterizing this roughness. However, ...

  9. UURC

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: SB072040

    The overall goal of this research effort is to design, develop, and demonstrate an autonomous UURC which mimics a cuttlefish in appearance and movement while providing the capability to carry a useful payload. Based on our Phase I work, we plan to design, build, and test an autonomous UURC with the following nominal characteristics and performance metrics: total weight of ~ 25 lbs; 10 to 15 lb pay ...

  10. Digital Common Operating Picture for Information Operations (DICOP-IO)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: SB072033

    This proposal is for a Phase II continuation of an SBIR Phase I project to develop an innovative cognitive- and decision-based system to provide a Digital Operating Picture for Information Operations (DICOP-IO) in coordination with systems currently being used for Kinetic Operations. The DICOP-IO system will bring needed new capabilities for organization, assessment and visualization to IO, a mil ...
