  1. STEM Solar Explorations

    SBC: Diversified Painting & CO            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: The need for all students to be well prepared in science has been well documented. The purpose of this project is to develop a solar learning lab platform to apply learning in the area of energy science. Project Activities: The researchers will design curricula materials, multi-media video clips, lesson plans, student activities, assessments, and a back-end system to house data generated ...

  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. Ultra-stable Frequency Reference Based on Spectral Hole Burning

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SB12A001

    Highly stable, ultra-narrow linewidth frequency references are required for current and next generation timing systems. Timing systems with improved accuracy from primary clocks to fieldable references all require laser oscillators with improved inherent stability (time scales shorter than ~ 1 second). This proposal describes a novel frequency reference based on spectral hole burning in rare-ear ...

  5. Design of Robot Control Interfaces

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB12A002

    Boston Engineering"s Advanced Systems Group and Dr. Holly Yanco"s team at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell propose to develop a design science for robot operator interfaces and demonstrate its application through existing design tools and prototype systems that reduce operator training time, maximize the ability of an operator - robot team to maintain synchronization, and provide a baseli ...

  6. Design of Robot-Operator Interaction for Disaster Situations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    Currently Unmanned Ground Vehicles are teleoperated, requiring operators to be both vigilant and fully engaged throughout the operation. While increasing the level of autonomy of UGVs potentially reduces both the workload and cognitive load on operators, realizing the promise of autonomy is difficult in deployment. Remote operation of UGVs is subject to unreliable communication and mobility chall ...

  7. Non-invasive Continuous Hemodynamic Monitor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: SB12A003

    Emergency departments, trauma centers, and military field physicians have a critical need for a simple, easy-to-use, and reliable method of monitoring the onset of hemorrhagic shock that is able to predict onset during the compensatory phase, before syncope and cardiac collapse signaled by a rapid drop in blood pressure. In collaboration with Dr. Michael Joyner"s laboratory at the Mayo Clinic, RMD ...

  8. Visualization, Human Systems, Information Systems

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB12A004

    We propose to develop and evaluate a social media visualization testbed, using a novel first-principles design approach based on visual thinking algorithms(VTA"s). Much like software design patterns, VTA"s are reusable blueprints for design of new interactive visualizations. VTA's describe the steps in the visual thinking process that capture both operations occurring in a computer and in the ...

  9. Tunable, High-Q Filters for UHF Communications

    SBC: MEMtronics Corporation            Topic: SB12A006

    In today"s dense electromagnetic environment, proper allocation and management of spectrum is an overriding concern for U.S. military forces. The ubiquity of wireless systems places many radiators spectrally or physically near one another, impacting receiver performance through interference or jamming. The dynamic nature of the radio environment prevents precise knowledge of all these interferer ...

  10. Broad photonic-based Tunable High Quality Factor RF Filter

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB12A006

    Leveraging Agiltron"s industrial leading developments and production of high speed fiber optical components and modules as well as commercial photonic devices, we propose to develop a new class of high performance tunable RF filters and filter banks for advanced RF systems. The approach is closely coupled with recent progress in photonic devices and fiber optic devices to push the filter performan ...
