  1. App for Speech Development for Students with ASD

    SBC: Handhold Adaptive, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are severe neurodevelopmental disabilities characterized by deficits in social and communication skills and the presence of restrictive, repetitive behaviors. For the 80 percent of individuals with ASDs who speak, prosody—the rhythm, stress, and intonation of speech—is among the most noticeable and chronic impairments. Prosodic speech deficits impede social int ...

  2. Socket Pressure Monitoring System

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84133S1

    The goal of this Phase 1 project is to identify changes in residual limb volume in amputees and to warn the user when these changes may lead to potential problems. One cause of residual limb pain in amputees is improper prosthetic socket fit, causing a range of mild to unbearable pressures. Residual limbs can change shape over long timeframes which can change the interface between the socket and s ...

  3. The Intelligent Brace: A Compliance Monitoring System for Scoliosis

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 84133S1

    The goal of this project is to provide real-time monitoring and data logging to help both the patient and clinician determine if and when a scoliosis brace is being worn effectively. Despite widespread use of bracing for treatment of scoliosis, its efficacy remains unproven. Studies have indicated that user compliance is a large factor in the efficacy of scoliosis brace treatment. Two factors comp ...

  4. Intelligent Adaptive Needs Characterization for M&S Systems Engineering

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: MDA11T003

    System requirements elicitation is a time consuming process with an extremely high penalty for errors. Mistakes made in the requirements phase will cost 50 times more to fix while they are uncovered in the production phase as compared to fixing them in the requirements phase. VIStology and Northeastern University are proposing to develop an approach for supporting the requirements elicitation phas ...

  5. Advanced Infrared Focal Plane Arrays with Strained Layer Superlattice Detectors on Digital-Pixel Readout Integrated Circuits

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA12T003

    We propose to combine QmagiQ's strained layer superlattice (SLS) sensor technology with MIT Lincoln Laboratory's novel digital pixel readout integrated circuit (DROIC) to realize an advanced longwave infrared digital focal plane array (DFPA) with high quantum efficiency, dynamic range, and operating temperature. In Phase I, we will develop the SLS DFPA. In Phase II, we will optimize th ...

  6. Accurate Simulations of Clouds and Optical Turbulence

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA11001

    Target detection and tracking by missile defense sensor systems on an airborne platform is affected by clouds and atmospheric turbulence. Clouds interfere with detection and tracking for viewing scenarios when clouds are in the foreground of the target. Turbulence phenomena can interfere with tracking throughout ascent. In addition to turbulence induced image dancing and blurring effects, turbulen ...

  7. Advanced Hybrid Methods for Complex Target Plumes

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA11002

    We propose to develop a new and innovative capability to model complex target plumes by upgrading the SOCRATES-P Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) high altitude plume signature code. This capability will enable SOCRATES-P to simulate 3D plume flowfields in a unified manner, from inside the nozzle to the far field, and include plume-plume, plume-body, angle-of-attack, and other complex target ef ...

  8. Large Format Membrane Mirror Light Modulator for Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: Optron Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA11003

    This Phase I SBIR program will initiate the development of a large-format mid-wave infrared (MWIR) scene projector based on the Company's existing membrane-mirror spatial light modulator technology. The scene projector is based on a VLSI membrane-mirror light modulator (VLSI-MMLM) that uses a deformable membrane mirror to modulate an off-chip light source. Prototype infrared scene projectors ...

  9. A Scheme to Reduce Dark Current in SLS FPAs

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA11005

    Longwave infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) based on Type-II InAs/GaSb-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes show good performance at the current time. A key remaining challenge is the reduction of dark current, dominated by pixel surface leakage in FPAs and low minority carrier lifetime in the bulk material. We propose to address the former in this Phase I and develop a unique sche ...

  10. Development of line-narrowed diode pumps sources for DPAL systems

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: MDA11007

    The diode pumped alkali laser (DPAL) allows for a potentially scalable approach towards a MW-class high energy laser system. By using an alkali vapor gain medium, one overcomes the intrinsic thermo-optical limitations of more conventional diode-pumped solid state laser (DPSSL) media. High spectral brightness diode pump sources are proposed by TeraDiode as the enabling element for efficient, kW-c ...
