  1. 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 ...

  3. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: CBD18A002

    There are currently no vaccines or therapeutics available for Marburg Virus Disease (MVD). Given the specter of weaponization and the terriblemorbidity and high mortality rate of MVD, this represents a critical threat to the operational readiness of the Warfighter. While traditionalvaccines have proven to be a huge contribution to public health, they do have some limitations especially in the cont ...

  5. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. TALOS User Experience

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A13068

    With the advanced capabilities planned by the TALOS program comes the risk of the operator becoming overwhelmed by the information available and the operation of the suit itself. To effectively employ the suit in the field, TALOS requires an effective situational awareness display and an intuitive, low-impact way of interacting with the suits physical/sensor systems. SoarTech proposes to continue ...

  9. 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 ...
