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

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Scoliosis, a condition where there is lateral curvature of the spine, affects an estimated 6 million people in the United States. There is widespread use of bracing for treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, and recent studies have begun documenting its efficacy. These studies have indicated that user compliance is a large, yet largely unquantified, factor in successful outcomes. There are ...

  2. Therapeutic Intermittent Compression Socket

    SBC: Liberating Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to develop a device that provides rapid intermittent compression to the residual limb of amputees that do not have good blood flow in their limbs. The device will be built into the prosthetic socket to provide the user with portable therapy throughout the day, which will free the user from being confined to a chair for up to six hours each day to receive the prescrib ...

  3. Socrative Learning Network

    SBC: Socrative Inc            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of the Socrative Learning Network, a website for teachers to share information to guide instructional practice. The website will support Socrative’s existing 600,000 registered teachers in creating, sharing, searching, and filtering assessments by content, grade, or user, with a mechanism for commentingedu on and editing questions. Pilot research in Pha ...

  6. Chemical and Laser Damage Resistant, High Performance AR Microstructures For DPALs

    SBC: TELAZTEC LLC            Topic: MDA11008

    Compact, efficient, mega-watt power level lasers are being developed by the MDA for the mission of destroying targets over a range of many hundreds of kilometers. A candidate laser technology with the promise of meeting this mission goal is based on alkali gas that is optically pumped by multiple, electrically driven diode lasers. One current problem limiting the potential operational lifetime o ...

  8. Optimizing Weapons System and Sensor Pairing Through Efficient Binary Polynomial Optimization

    SBC: DYNAMIC IDEAS LLC            Topic: MDA12004

    Exact formulations of weapon-to-threat assignment problems have long been identified as binary polynomial optimization problems which are theoretically difficult (Non-deterministic polynomial-time-hard or NP-hard), thus previous research for implementation in the area has focused on heuristic solution methods or methods which compromise full formulation with limits on assignment. The introduction ...

  9. Ultra-Low Power Sensor for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA12006

    During Phase I, Triton Systems demonstrated proof-of-concept for new methods developed for a near zero power advanced senor to detect X-rays. Triton Systems performed design analysis and limited bench level testing to demonstrate the sensor. During Phase II, Triton Systems will further develop and refine the methods designed in Phase I, and evaluate their effectiveness utilizing relevant prototy ...
