  1. Biomimetic Slope Adaptive Foot-Ankle Prosthesis

    SBC: MOTION CONTROL, INC            Topic: DHP16C007

    The primary objective is to develop a commercially-viable prototype of the slope adaptive prosthesis design and to iteratively improve the design based on ISO standards testing and rigorous use in human subject field trials. The proposed work will build upon knowledge gained in Phase I of the project, which established feasibility for this design approach in a lightweight, passive hydraulic foot-a ...

  3. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: STOTTLER HENKE ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: ST16C003

    We propose to investigate, in collaboration with MGH Voice Center and Altec, Inc., application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience of our partner, MGH (including resea ...

  4. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...

  5. Complex Networks for Computational Urban Resilience (CONCUR)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: ST17C003

    CONCUR develops a computational framework for assessing and characterizing urban environments stability or fragility in response to volatility and stress, identifying specific weaknesses as well as key tipping points which could lead to rapid systemic failure. CONCUR explicitly models urban environments as emergent complex systems, focusing attention on the critical triggers that could lead to rap ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: IREPROGRAM, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
