  1. IA 2: Intent-Capturing Annotations for Isolation and Assurance

    SBC: Immunant, Inc.            Topic: HR001120S0019001

    Software and hardware flaws can be exploited to make programs perform unintended computations or leak sensitive data. We propose to counter these threats by isolating libraries and other program units inside a single process. The developer will insert source-level annotations that i) map code and data units to compartments and ii) capture how each compartment is intended to interact with others, i ...

  2. Pathogen Classification Tool (PaCT)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST18C002

    Stottler Henke proposes PaCT, leveraging our related past work in computer vision and machine learning. Drawing from techniques used in ExPATSS, a Phase II SBIR effort slated for transition to the Naval fleet, PaCT will perform bacterial characterization using features derived from the phenotype of the bacteria. PaCT will predict bacterial characteristics such as pathogenicity, antibiotic resistan ...

  3. Development of Autonomous Glycemic Control Mechanism for Patients Suffering Glycemic Abnormalities as a Result of Critical Illnesses

    SBC: PROFUSA, INC.            Topic: ST18C004

    The use of continuous glucose monitors can be an invaluable management tool for patients afflicted by glycemic variability due to critical illness or trauma. Maintaining stable glucose levels enhances health and lowers care costs, and individuals equipped with continuous glucose data have significantly improved outcomes. Profusa has developed highly miniaturized, injectable, tissue-like, glucose s ...

  4. Visual Relative Navigation via Intelligent Ephemeral Relationships (VRNIER)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C006

    As unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) become more prevalent there is an increasing desire to automate UAS navigation and control. To enable future UASs to perform a wider variety of missions, the they must be able to complete autonomous relative navigation to accomplish missions. Current technologies rely heavily on GPS measurements, which are undesirable since GPS signals may be unavailable in many ...

  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. 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 ...

  7. Nonintrusive Detector of Acute Cognitive Strain (DACS)

    SBC: Quantum Applied Science And Research, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    Modern defense systems place high cognitive demands on warfighters, often taxing the limit of human capabilities and causing operators to suffer Acute Cognitive Strain (ACS), wherein performance deteriorates markedly, leading to a loss of situational awareness and control, and decrements in team cooperativity. ACS leads to physiological changes driven by sympathetic system activation, including i ...

  8. Physiology-based Operator Confidence Assessment System (PhOCAS)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: ST16C003

    Investigates and explores the solution space for physiologically-based emotion detection within the design and development of a Physiology-based Operator Confidence Assessment System (PhOCAS). The PhOCAS project uses UCF ISTs experience as experts on augmented cognition and physiological assessment for determining user state (such as workload) combined with SoarTechs intelligent systems capabiliti ...

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

    SBC: Cognionics, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    This STTR project aims to assess the feasibility of using laryngeal EMG to detect operator workload and strain. Phase I will develop a wearable neckband device positioning an array of laryngeal EMG electrodes plus additional sensors for measuring masseter EMG, heart rate variability, GSR and estimated relative blood pressure. The neckband will be optimized to be both wearable, comfortable and resi ...

  10. 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 the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center and Altec, Inc., the 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 o ...
