  1. Automated Behavioral Health Triage

    SBC: Activity Research Services            Topic: A04T025

    The overall objective of this project is to develop an automatic adaptive testing system that rapidly identifies specific cognitive deficits to aid in medical and operational decision making. The Phase I effort produced a prototype adaptive triage system. ANAMts, designed to automatically focus testing on specific cognitive domains. ANAMts consists of a 4-level adaptive cognitive testing system ...

  2. Ducted Fan Model for Real-Time Rotorcraft Flight Simulation


    The ducted/shrouded fan has become widely adopted in modern rotorcraft as a safe,low noise, and effective anti-torque device. Ducted fans have also found popular applications as the main VTOL lifting device for recent uninhabited air vehicle (UAV) and flying automobile developments because of their compact structure and high lifting performance. The proposed research is dedicated to developing a h ...

  3. Neuromorphic Control System for Powered Limb Splints

    SBC: Advensys, LLC            Topic: A04T009

    AdveNSys will develop a suite of products to provide new orthotic and prosthetic options for people with lower limb dysfunction or lower limb amputation. We will enhance our biologically-inspired adaptive neuromorphic control systems technology and integrate it with biomorphic compliant actuators, advanced sensor systems, and lightweight orthotic/prosthetic components to produce a suite of produc ...

  4. Light Weight Material for Ballistic Armor

    SBC: Aegis Technology Inc.            Topic: A02072

    Weight reduction has become a primary concern in the development of future ballistic armor systems, which are beyond the capability of existing materials. Thus novel lightweight, ultrahigh strength materials are needed to meet the ever-increasing challenges of weight reduction. The proposed SBIR Phase II program will involve: (1) designing, developing, and manufacturing a novel class of lightweig ...

  5. Advanced Military Hybrid Technology

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: A04249

    A hybrid energy storage (HES) system that combines lithium batteries and ultracapacitors can provide both high energy and high power. The proposed work will develop a prototype HES system that will target the Phase I SBIR objectives of 110 Wh/kg energy along with 1000 W/kg power, economically. HES technology is key to charge-depleting Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs), also known as plug-in hybrids, ...

  6. Obstacle Display for Hover in Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Anacapa Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A04078

    The objective of this topic is to develop a Rotorcraft Obstacle Avoidance Display (ROAD) that alerts pilots to hazards in confined areas, especially at night and in degraded visual environments. The Army loses an average of $58 million and 14 lives each year to obstacle strikes and the civilian helicopter industry is similarly devastated. The ROAD is designed to provide pilots with an easily und ...

  7. Robotic Mules Using Leg Pairs as Virtual Wheels

    SBC: Applied Minds, LLC            Topic: A03242

    Applied Minds, Inc. (AMI) will prototype a transverse two-virtual-wheel robotic mule that will carry a diesel generator and a small rechargeable battery, and which will be capable of carrying additional loads. AMI’s concept is to build a legged robotic vehicle by replacing the wheels of a conventional vehicle with leg pairs, effectively providing a set of very large diameter virtual wheels. ...

  8. Nanoscale Chemical Analysis using Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (nano-LIBS)

    SBC: Applied Spectra, Inc.            Topic: A04T011

    As nanotechnology fabrication develops internationally, the availability of tools for ensuring that materials and systems abide by their design characteristics becomes essential. In order for nanotechnology to mature, diagnostic instruments must be developed to detect and analyze physical and chemical properties with spatial resolution much less than the dimensions of the nanostructures (materials ...

  9. Biologically Inspired Acoustic Source Localization System

    SBC: Ausim, Inc.            Topic: A04T013

    This proposal is to develop the acoustic source detection and localization algorithms identified as optimal in Phase I into a wearable prototype that integrates a networked sensor array, digital audio processing, position and orientation tracking of the wearer, and aural/visual displays of the detected sounds. Advantages of our approach over competing algorithms include noise tolerance, power eff ...

  10. Identification and Characterization of Molecular Inhibitors of Cognitive Performance

    SBC: CIPHERGEN BIOSYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A04063

    We will use Proteinchip© Arrays/SELDI-TOF-MS (Ciphergen) to obtain a large-scale profiling of the brain proteins affected by sleep loss. Fruit flies, rats and sparrows will be sleep recorded and sleep deprived in the laboratory of Dr. Chiara Cirelli (UW–Madison). Rats will be studied after acute and chronic sleep deprivation and sleep restriction. Wild-type flies and sleep-deprivation resistant ...
