  1. Multi-Functional Nanotube-Based Sensor Array for Detecting Blood Coagulation Defects

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: DHA19A001

    Defense Health Agency (DHA) is seeking a multi-functional diagnostic to determine blood coagulopathy in real time at point-of-care (POC). Blood coagulopathy, resulting in uncontrolled bleeding, is implicated in 80% of operating room deaths and 50% of trauma deaths. There are many types of coagulation defects, which need distinct interventions. Therefore, DHA wants prompt monitoring of the underlyi ...

  2. Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 1

    On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...

  4. Griffon Test Suite

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: DHA17C001

    In this proposal we support the development of a hypoxia test battery by designing and developing a domain general tool suite for processing, synchronizing, and evaluating data from cognitive, behavioral, and physiological measures.The proposed Griffon Tool Suite addresses many of the practical requirements demanded by a flexible test battery. The effort falls into three major thrusts.First, we pr ...

  5. Handoff Training for Combat Casualty Care (HTC3) Framework

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: DHA17B001

    This proposal is to develop a Handoff Training for Combat Casualty Care (HTC3) Framework.Training is the crux of the handoff problem today. Patient handoffs are a crucial part of casualty care, both in military and civilian environments; and today handoffs are being performed in less than optimal fashion, with ineffective communications accounting for 80% of the handoff errors. Our new HTC3 Framew ...

  6. Combat Casualty Handoff Automated Trainer (CCHAT)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: DHA17B001

    Combat casualty handoffs are critical communication moments during which responsibility for the patient and important casualty information is transferred between providers. The nature of these handoffs requires specialized training, for which no standardized framework currently exists. The proposed effort aims to develop a capability, compatible with current DoD systems, that provides caregivers w ...

  7. CCHAT Handoff Protocol

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: DHA17B002

    Research has identified that handoffs are particularly important communication processes, during which communication error can lead to patient safety situations. Organizations have created standard practices and training materials to encourage teamwork communication for handoffs, however these do not necessarily capture the needs of military medicine of combat casualty care. Combat casualty handof ...

  8. Real-time Modulated Imaging for Assessment of Tissue Viability Prior to Skin Grafts

    SBC: Modulated Imaging Inc.            Topic: DHA17A006

    There is a lack of quantitative tools to accurately map tissue viability in a rapid and quantitative manner so a surgeon can properly excise tissue prior to grafting. Spatial Frequency Domain Imaging (SFDI) is an optical method that has been shown to be a reliable method for physiology assessment - particularly for burn depth. SFDI measures of tissue structure (scattering) and function (hemoglobi ...

  9. Biomimetic Slope Adaptive Foot-Ankle Prosthesis

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: DHP16C007

    Biomimetic Slope Adaptive Foot-Ankle Prosthesis This project will develop an innovative mechanical/hydraulic foot-ankle system that will help lower extremity prosthesis wearers to walk or run in a wider range of environments with close to normal walking biomechanics. The proposed system will have a unique combination of features, all mechanically implemented without electronics or external powe ...

  10. In-Mask Sensors for Physiological Investigation of Respiratory Exhalation- INSPIRE

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DHP16C002

    Makel Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose to demonstrate an advanced multi-modal sensor system suitable for in-situ analysis of exhaled VOCs for pilots, divers and field patients. Our proposed system will combine a micro-gas chromatograph (GC) and miniature ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) for detection of trace amounts of exhaled breath VOCs with miniature solid state sensor ...
