  2. A Multi-Waveform Visceral Neuromodulation Device with a Translational Visceral Electrode Foundry

    SBC: Micro-Leads, Inc.            Topic: SB142006

    Asthma, hypertension and diabetes impact one half of the world's civilian and military population resulting in premature death for many people. The sympathetic and parasympathetic visceral nerves which enervate the dysfunctional end organ may represent a neural stimulation target to reduce the impact of disease. However, the development of visceral nerve therapies has been inhibited for many yea ...

  3. Accelerated Low-power Motion Planning for Real-time Interactive Autonomy

    SBC: Dynamic Object Language Labs, Inc.            Topic: SB172009

    The DOD and robotics industry, have a critical need for a motion planning capability that is practical for real-world application of autonomous systems that perform physical motions. Current motion planning systems are too slow; they assume that the environment will be static during motion planning and execution, each of which can take on the order of seconds. Further, these systems typically gen ...

  4. Analysis and Development of Scalable Techniques for Creating Optically Transparent Films with Tapered Resistivity

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM16004

    Conductive films that maintain transparency are a key element in many current products and industries, including electronic devices for touch screens and automobiles as sources for generating heat. Such films are also useful in military applications. By introducing a resistive taper in conductive films or antennas, overall performance can be improved by reducing backscattering and increasing sensi ...
