  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Development of Advanced Military Prosthetic Shoulder System

    SBC: Sarcos Group LC            Topic: A05161

    A new dual pump hydraulic supply designed to enable energetically autonomous exoskeleton robots will be developed, tested and demonstrated. This new hydraulic supply will be integrated with a high performance hydraulically actuated full body exoskeleton robot and used to test and demonstrate the overall performances of such systems. New control policies that include: (i) an assist mode, where the ...

  7. Technologies for Rare Earths Enrichment of a Novel Low-Cost Raw Material

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD12T01

    A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...

  8. Information Salience

    SBC: DISCERNING TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: OSD11TD1

    Empirical-based mathematical framework and computer algorithms, for representing human perception and cognition processes and limitations, which influence the recognition of salient information about rapidly changing events.

  9. Human-Centric Training and Assessment System for Cyber Situational Awareness

    SBC: Scalable Network Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD12T08

    The goal of the proposed work is to develop a human-centric training and assessment system for cyber situation awareness. The envisioned system will enable instructors to define training goals, design lesson plans, assign students roles in teams, and observe students performance, record events and interactions for scoring. The instructor/students can place tags (time or event) to roll back or repl ...

  10. System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face Recognition

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: SOCOM18A001

    Face recognition performance using deep learning has seen dramatic improvements in recent years. This improvement has been fueled in part by the curation of large labeled training datasets with millions of images of hundreds of thousands of subjects.This results in effective generalization for matching over pose, illumination, expression and age variation, however these datasets have traditionally ...
