  1. A system for augmenting training by Monitoring, Extracting, and Decoding Indicators of Cognitive Load (MEDIC)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: DHP13002

    Military medical personnel must act quickly and efficiently in any operational environment. Their success in saving lives depends on their ability to act effectively, both individually and as a team. Therefore, training must address individual skills and knowledge as well as interactions among team members. Currently, trainers must infer competence across these dimensions using only observation of ...

  2. Vector Arthropod Trap Using a CO2 Attractant Source

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: DHP13007

    The military desires an improved trap to capture and hold arthropods that may carry disease causing pathogens. A continuous source of carbon dioxide is needed over an 8 hour period to attract flea and tick species that are subsequently trapped and held alive for five days. Ideally, the arthropod trap will be smaller than a 2"diameter by 4.5"cylindrical shape to fit into burrows while also weighing ...

  3. A software tool to assess injury risk and maximum allowable exertions for repetitive, forceful one hand and two hand shoulder push/pull motions

    SBC: BioSensics LLC            Topic: DHP13008

    BioSensics LLC, in partnership with the Center for Advanced Orthopaedic Studies at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, will develop the shoulder injury risk assessment (ShIRA) software tool for a wide range of activities. The injury risk criteria and exposure assessment models will be developed based on expert opinion from shoulder surgeons, ex-vivo data on the biomechanics of the shoulder joint ...

  4. A Software Tool to Assess Injury Risk Associated with Mechanical Exposures From Wearing Head Supported Mass

    SBC: BioSensics LLC            Topic: DHP13009

    Military helmet systems increase the likelihood of low and high-severity injuries, but the additional risk of neck injuries associated with Head Supported Devices (HSDs) has not been quantified. It is necessary to determine safe and tolerable limits of HSD mass, spatial distribution around helmet systems, and exposure schedule, as they are important design criteria for future military helmets. Bio ...

  5. Visual Evoked Potentials for TBI Diagnosis

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: DHP13011

    War-fighters in forward combat settings are frequently exposed to concussive events (e.g., explosions, accidents, and falls), but resources for diagnosing mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs) in these settings are limited. As such, soldiers with impaired cognitive states are often sent into combat situations, exposing them to unnecessary risk and increasing the likelihood of long-term health cons ...

  6. Portable Multi-Modal TBI (PMT) monitor

    SBC: Vivonics, Inc.            Topic: DHP13011

    Vivonics, Inc., together with clinical experts from the Mayo Clinic and the University of Utah proposes to develop a comprehensive diagnostic tool to detect and quantify mild brain injury (mTBI) in field applications using both visual evoked potentials (VEP) and non-invasive measurement of intracranial pressure (ICP). The combination of VEP and ICP measurement is likely to provide additional info ...

  7. Development of Technologies that Address the Complex Architecture of the Face During the Treatment of Severe Facial Burn Injury

    SBC: Applied Tissue Technologies LLC            Topic: DHP13016

    The overall goal of this project, in response to SBIR topic DHP12-016, is to develop a novel easily deployed device to immediately treat severe facial burns in order to prevent infection and wound progression while the victim is en route to a medical facility. Prompt treatment in the first hours after a burn injury is essential to prevent ischemia, hyperemia and necrosis, which progressively enlar ...

  8. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    "Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic transparent armor removes both these deficiencies and provides a twofold improvement in performance, but costs 6-1 ...

  9. Foliage Propagation Model Development to Support New Communications Concepts

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB122007

    Systems & Technology Research (STR) together with our partner, The Ohio State University ElectroScience Laboratory (OSU/ESL), is pleased to provide this proposal to develop foliage propagation modeling algorithms, measurements and techniques to support new communications concepts. Our innovative approach to this problem will combine efficient computational electromagnetic methods (CEM) that captur ...

  10. Controlling Antibiotic Resistance by Vaccinating Bacterial Populations

    SBC: Ginkgo BioWorks            Topic: SB122001

    Next generation sequencing technologies are allowing researchers to rapidly and accurately interrogate the genomic content of microbiomes. Advances in our understanding of the human microbiome are likely to lead to the use of next generation sequencing as a diagnostic tool to identify the existence and precise genotype of pathogens and virulence genes. Likewise, our ability to engineer microbes us ...
