  3. Novel Structure-Preserving Algorithms for Accurate Rocket Trajectory Propagation

    SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC.            Topic: MDA17T002

    The Department of Defense uses large-scale high-resolution federated simulations to propagate rocket vehicle trajectories. Runge-Kutta methods have served as a de-facto standard while conducting such simulations. However, there are several challenges while using Runge-Kutta methods for this task. Firstly, there should be exact time-step matching between federates, otherwise the states have to be i ...

  5. Lightweight Structural Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: MDA17T004

    The Ground-Based Interceptor (GBI) missile is the weapon component of the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system that consists of a rocket booster and kinetic kill vehicle. Recently, MDA has sought technologies to improve the performance of the booster vehicle (BV). To date, studies have shown that reductions in weight have a direct impact on overall effectiveness. The current proposal aims t ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
