  1. Small, Cheap, Smart, and Simple

    SBC: CORPORA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project develops an electronic mobility aid for individuals with low vision or blindness to prevent collision with overhanging obstacles not detected by standard methods such as the cane. This electronic mobility aid fulfills the criteria of (1) small size, (2) low cost, (3) low cognitive demands, and (4) hands-free operation. Phase I of the project focuses on novel algorithms to minimize cog ...

  2. OPEN

    SBC: One Planet Education Network (OPEN) LLC            Topic: N/A

    Virtual worlds are an emerging form of technology where users can take the form of an avatar and move around within a simulated environment. Such worlds may have potential in the field of education to provide students with new learning opportunities by affording participation in tasks that often would not be possible in the real world due to constraints and restrictions, such as cost, scheduling, ...

  5. Tool to Improve Collaboration between Operators and Reachback Analysts (TICORA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB101005

    Modern full-spectrum operations require that military decision-makers possess an understanding of the human social, cultural, and behavioral (HSCB) dynamics of a region so they can plan effective courses of action (COAs). To ensure that COAs are congruent with the HSCB aspects of an intended audience while effectively achieving military objectives, decision-makers need to engage expert analysts to ...

  6. A System for Automated Real-time Collaboration Assessment for Distributed Environments (ARCADE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB093007

    As mission needs evolve, specialties and resources can be brought to bear through cross-agency or coalition collaborations. Each collaborator who joins the team brings along his or her training, doctrine, and processes, which introduces collaboration challenges. An automated capability to assess the effectiveness of collaboration in real time would help to ensure that command teams are collaborati ...

  7. Special Nuclear Material (SNM) Detection

    SBC: LIGHTLINE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: SB092015

    Nuclear Weapons, or Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) which can be used in fabricating nuclear weapons, are difficult to detect, can be transported in conventional shipping containers, and represent a serious security threat in the hands of terrorists. The detection of SNM is currently accomplished, some say inadequately, by expensive nuclear radiation particle counters that must operate in close p ...

  9. Design and Development of High Performance UV Imaging Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB093011

    Magnolia Proposes to design, optimize and demonstrate small-pixel Gallium Nitride based Ultraviolet (UV) Avalanche Photo Diodes (APD) for solar blind UV imaging and applications. As part of the proposed phase I effort, we will model the sensor performance with detector size of approximately five (5) microns unit cell size and also ranging from as large as 30 um to 5um unit cells. We will model re ...

  10. Re-Entry Energy Scavenging Storage System (REESSS)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SB093014

    PSI proposes an innovative approach to harvesting the large kinetic energy available during the re-entry of flight modules. The ability to capture a significant fraction of this energy depends upon the type of the re-entry trajectory. Energy capture for high Beta vehicles occurs at low altitude whereas the opposite occurs for large, blunt low Beta vehicles. It is also important to capture the e ...
