  1. (A-TEAMM) Advanced Team Effectiveness through Automated Model-Based Mitigation

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A11041

    Groups in network-centric environments are faced with many challenges including distributed collaboration, decen-tralized decision-making, and dynamic changes in team membership. The team literature provides evidence that these challenges impede the development of optimal team states (composed of trust, cohesion, shared mental mod-els, etc.), ultimately influencing a team"s ability to share missio ...

  2. A Compact Solid State Infrared Flare

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A09004

    In this Phase II SBIR proposal Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) describes the development a solid-state emitter package to replace the propellant-based candle of the M278 infrared flare. Propellant combustion in the current candle technology is unsteady, resulting in variations in the illumination intensity and also produces a visible signature that limits it usefulness in covert activities. The propo ...

  5. A Protoflight High Specific Power Electric Propulsion System

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: SB101012

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) has demonstrated the ability to ionize, electromagnetically accelerate, and eject a broad range of complex and chemically-reactive molecular gases, including monopropellants. EMPT has the potential to dramatically increase the operational range of existing electric propulsion (EP) systems in both power density, power throttling, and propellant choice. P ...

  6. A System to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AFFECT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A09AT006

    Modern military and security scenarios increasingly demand rapid evaluation of human affective states, accurately detecting stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fatigue (SAUF) to assess warfighter effectiveness or to advance security screening and interrogation objectives. In our Phase I effort, we designed and demonstrated a system to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AF ...

  7. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  8. Actively Compliant Parallel End-Effector Mechanism for Medical Interventions

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD09H09

    Robot-assisted surgery and envisioned diagnostics require the clinician to rely almost solely on visual feedback, pointing to the need for solutions to ensure that contact forces with the anatomy are maintained at clinically safe and effective levels at all times. A 6 degree-of-freedom (DOF) Active Compliance End-effector (ACE) is proposed that is capable of counter-movements in real-time to autom ...

  9. Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR)

    SBC: MZEAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Use of"Smartphones"and cellular networks is becoming an increasing priority for military applications. By placing the source of information directly with the solider on the ground via a Smartphone, the vision of"every soldier a sensor"becomes attainable. mZeal proposes to facilitate this vision with the Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR) system. AMMSTAR will capture photographic ...

  10. ADS FORCE: Assessment and Development Strategies FOr team Rapid Cognitive Effectiveness

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10CR4

    In modern warfare, the knowledge and skills of several individuals must interact with one another for successful mission execution. Therefore, military combat operations emphasize the use of teams, who are often expected to rapidly deploy together. Such teams must quickly become highly functioning, as characterized by high levels of team cognitive readiness and process. To address the need for new ...
