  1. 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 ...

  2. ENHANCING MOTION IMAGERY CLASSIFIERS BY PRINCIPAL COMPONENT FEATURE CLUSTERING

    SBC: Longshortway Inc.            Topic: AF15AT35

    LongShortWay Inc. and Northeastern University propose a family of feature reduction and ensemble classifier methods based on Principal Component and Dynamic Logic feature clustering algorithms. New methods combine feature clustering with non-linear feature reduction via manifold learning, and bagging, boosting, and stacking ensemble algorithms.

  3. Small Team Command, Control, Communications and Situational Awareness (C3SA), SOCOM08-001

    SBC: CEEBUS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM08001

    SOF combat swimmers have a need for the continuous monitoring of each others relative position while diving and for the capability of being able to communicate with each other to help establish a common operational picture (COP).The C3SA system was previously developed under SBIR Topic SOCOM08-001 thru the receipt of both Phase I and Phase II SBIR awards.The C3SA established a stand-alone network ...

  4. Biologically-inspired Integrated Vision System

    SBC: Spectral Imaging Laboratory            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV) imaging sensors that sample the radiation field in multiple modes: spectral, temporal, polarization, and detailed object shape. These multimodal sensors are to be deployed on high altitude drones to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. Smaller versions o ...

  5. Volume Charge Distribution Measurement in Thin Dielectrics

    SBC: Box Elder Innovations, LLC            Topic: AF11BT20

    ABSTRACT:Over half of spacecraft system anomalies attributed to interactions with the natural space environment including - electron upsets, damage to components, power system debilities, and complete satellite failures - are attributed to spacecraft charging.While measurements of electron emission, surface potential, and electrostatic breakdown provide important information, the great need for ma ...

  6. MK III Upper Extremity Exoskeleton

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: 739552

    As the carry and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the burden on the human body will necessarily increase. In our present TALOS MkIII project, we are developing lower body augmentation to preserve speed and agility while bearing this weight. Yet we cannot ignore the impact of this weight on the upper body: in this project we propose to develop an upper body exoskeleton with p ...

  7. Unified sensor for atmospheric turbulence and refractivity characterization

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT008

    In this effort, tOSC and the University of New Mexico COSMIAC (Configurable Space Microsystems Innovation Applications Center) will combine to generate a Target-in-the-Loop (TIL) system concept that can simultaneously measure the strength of atmospheric turbulence and scintillation, as well as the refractivity occurring at the measurement time. For this system concept, we will leverage existing tO ...

  8. RF Microplasmas for Energetic Species Generation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF10BT08

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. and Tufts University propose to apply innovative, ground-breaking RF microplasma technology to the development of devices to generate ozone and other energetic species for a variety of commercial, military, and research applications. The proposed work follows from our successful Phase I effort, which achieved the first implementation of a prototype single-board l ...

  9. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...

  10. New Paradigms in High Pressure Combustion Dynamics Prediction and Control

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: AF12BT15

    ABSTRACT:In this project we seek to transition major recent developments in the mathematics of model reduction to industrial grade computing applications in liquid rocket combustion instability. From the mathematical side, we are interested in unsteady nonlinear dynamical systems which exhibit limit-cycle behavior and large oscillations and potentially discontinuous solutions. From the application ...
