  1. Brain-Based Prediction of Influence Message Effectiveness (BB-PRIME)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A12AT009

    Behavior change is a common objective across the Defense community. Recent studies suggest that neuroimaging can improve our ability to predict what messages are effective in changing behavior in individuals and at scale (Falk & Scholz, 2018). However, current neuroscience results have not established definitive causal relationships between specific types of messages and behavior change. In BB-PRI ...

  2. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    During altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive and physical capacity degrades, compromising individual and team performance. Cognitive degradation is linked to falling brain energy levels, increased reliance on anaerobic energy production and lactate accumulation. Ketones are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies demonstrated that ...

  3. Human Performance Optimization

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    Special OperationsForces (SOF)are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S.military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the funct ...

  4. SWIFT ARROW STTR Phase 2

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: OSD12AU3

    In Dense Urban Environments (DUEs), a new and evolving battlefield, the ability to detect and respond quickly to multiple threats in complex environments (e.g., snipers on rooftops or in windows) is critical and is extremely important to both civilian and military tactical needs. Response latency in the critical moments after the beginning of an attack can significantly increase casualties. SWIFT ...

  5. Teammate Aware Autonomy (TAA)

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: N17AT025

    As systems become more heterogeneous and distributed, determining optimal actions for each “teammate” within the system becomes increasingly complex. A particular difficulty in guiding the actions of these teammates is the fact that they are not guaranteed to follow suggestions provided by a supervisor, especially when those suggestions are inconsistent with the teammate’s tendencies, prefer ...

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

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    We propose to investigate, in collaboration with MGH Voice Center and Altec, Inc., application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience of our partner, MGH (including resea ...

  7. Multiplexed Biofiltration of Volatile Organic Compounds

    SBC: WARNER BABCOCK INSTITUTE FOR GREEN CHEMISTRY LLC            Topic: ST16C001

    Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in air, especially in closed environments pose a major health threat. There is a critical need to remove these pollutant, and biofiltration is a promising solution to this need. This is a Phase II STTR proposal is to develop a novel, modular and scalable approach to biofiltration for effective management of air pollutants in closed environments. We propose a novel ...

  8. Group Dynamics Modeling, Forecasting, and Validation

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: ST12B002

    Building on our prior research in group discovery and tracking, we propose to develop new algorithms for predicting future behaviors of social media groups. These algorithms will be based on emerging social interaction theories and new computational models of group dynamics at multiple levels, from individual roles and interactions to aggregate trends within and across groups. Our approach takes a ...

  9. Memristor-CMOS Analog Co-Processor for Efficient Computation of PDEs

    SBC: SPERO DEVICES, INC.            Topic: ST15C002

    Spero Devices is proposing the development of an analog co-processor to accelerate computation of partial differential equations (PDEs) prevalent in scientific simulation. Examples include Navier-Stokes equations for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) an...

  10. Context-driven Active-sensing for Repair Tasks II (CART II)

    SBC: DYNAMIC OBJECT LANGUAGE LABS, INC.            Topic: ST14B003

    Existing machine perception systems are too inflexible, and are not robust enough to environmental uncertainty. In existing systems, perception components are statically (and manually) configured to process sensor data. The parameters of components in such a system are also statically tuned to operate optimally under very specific conditions. Information flow in such systems is bottom up, and gene ...
