  1. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations.  This project will deliver an individualized Fatigue Management Program (FMP) technology for trucking operations th ...

  2. Mission Assured Networking (MAN)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB082058

    Daniel H. Wagner proposes to explore and develop the method and the mathematics by which information and networks can be dynamically evaluated to minimize the transmission or display of redundant, low-value data while assuring that high-value information and subsystems are available. To do this, we propose to develop a non-probabilistic measure of value that encompasses all possible aggregates of ...

  3. Transformational Close Air Support

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082061

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of developing an HMMWV based Vertical Unmanned Aircraft System (VUAS) with laser designator and target geo-referencing capability to provide Close Air Support (CAS). Shoulder fired missiles have pushed US aircraft so far away from the CAS customer that he needs to find a replacement for the aircraft. As CAS aircraft stand off farther from the sma ...

  4. Detecting and Tracking Multiple Moving Objects from a Moving Platform

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082029

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of a novel tracking algorithm that uses spatial context to reason about long term intentions. While it is hard to fully anticipate a person's behavior, we can generate a set of reasonable hypotheses about it by selecting a number of high-level goals for known persons (e.g., a civilian goes to a store or home, a soldier searches for cover, a biker ...

  5. GPU-Based CFD Analysis for Modeling Complex UAV Flight Scenarios

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Recent advances in computing have produced special-purpose hardware comprised of vector processors streamlined for high-performance computations. Development of these devices, such as graphics processing units (GPUs) and the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell Processor), has been advanced by the videogame industry. In an effort to increase flexibility and enter new markets, vendors have increased platf ...

  6. Graph-Matching Accelerator (GMA)

    SBC: EXOGI LLC            Topic: SB082024

    We propose to explore the applicability of COTS general-purpose graphics processing units (GPGPU) to approximate graph matching problems, in order to dramatically improve the speed and utility of DoD-relevant processing areas such as machine vision, target recognition and social network analysis.

  7. MISARO- MeetPeoplePlaces(tm) Inference for Stability and Reconstruction Operations

    SBC: BASHPOLE SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: SB091003

    Several geosocial inference concerns currently limit military stability and reconstruction operations. Contact lists are outdated, vendor history is not maintained, and coordination delays are common. In this Phase I SBIR project for DARPA, Bashpole Inc. will design and demonstrate the feasibility of MISARO, a web-based platform system to improve the process of finding the right people among milit ...

  8. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology

    SBC: MILSYS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SB082007

    The material science and fabrication aspects of photo-sensitive materials has undergone a revolution in sensitivity and capability. These improvements have taken place in lock step with technology developments in the IC industry. The basic technology of cooling of focal plane arrays (FPA) has been around for the past forty years. It breaks down into two methodologies; mechanical (Stirling) and ...

  9. An Advanced Path-Planner for Militarily Relevant Environments

    SBC: RE2, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    A path planner is an integral part of any unmanned vehicle that is intended to autonomously navigate to a desired goal location. Although a great deal of research has been done in the field of path planning, there are still unsolved issues that require additional work. This project proposes several innovations to existing path planning technology that can deal with a number of issues that arise in ...

  10. Multiferroic Approach to Heat Pumps

    SBC: Strategic Polymer Sciences, Inc.            Topic: SB091001

    Recently, it was reported by Prof. Zhang at Penn State that a giant electrocaloric effect can be achieved in the polar-fluoropolymers near room temperature. In this SBIR Phase I program, Strategic Polymer Sciences, Inc., teaming up with Prof. Zhang at Penn State, will further optimize this class of polar-fluoropolymers to meet the operation requirement for the heat pumps used for the cooling for ...
