  1. A Low Work Function Thermionic Conversion Electrode for Space Power Generation

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB171004

    The conversion of heat to power has proven to be vital in flight missions where solar power generation is not an option. Radioisotope thermoelectric generators that converted heat produced by a decaying nuclear source to power have been used on numerous ...

  2. A Multi-Waveform Visceral Neuromodulation Device with a Translational Visceral Electrode Foundry

    SBC: Micro-Leads, Inc.            Topic: SB142006

    Asthma, hypertension and diabetes impact one half of the world's civilian and military population resulting in premature death for many people. The sympathetic and parasympathetic visceral nerves which enervate the dysfunctional end organ may represent a neural stimulation target to reduce the impact of disease. However, the development of visceral nerve therapies has been inhibited for many yea ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Accelerated Low-power Motion Planning for Real-time Interactive Autonomy

    SBC: Dynamic Object Language Labs, Inc.            Topic: SB172009

    The DOD and robotics industry, have a critical need for a motion planning capability that is practical for real-world application of autonomous systems that perform physical motions. Current motion planning systems are too slow; they assume that the environment will be static during motion planning and execution, each of which can take on the order of seconds. Further, these systems typically gen ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Automated Collaboration Collection&Relationship Understanding Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB093007

    Operations centers for tactical military activities, incident response, and other domains all involve multiple teams of individuals interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable continuous mission success. In these organizations, effective coordination and collaboration is critical. To improve collaboration, an end-to-end sensor and analysis technology is n ...

  8. Automation Support using non-Invasive Measures of Operator Vocalization (ASIMOV)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    Human-machine teams are increasingly prevalent across the DoD. These teams unite human operators with advanced automated teammates to execute complex, mission-critical tasks. Unfortunately, this collaboration between automated and human teammates can increase operator strain, because operators must complete their own tasks while also monitoring teammates and distributing tasks; one specific strain ...

  9. Autonomous Detection of Near-Surface Marine Mammals

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SB162015

    STR is teamed with Sercel Incorporated to address the challenge of automated mammal monitoring. Sercel has developed a commercial product, QuietSea, evolved for use by the oil industrys seismic community for mammal monitoring. Sercel complements STRs considerable experience in fielding advanced prototype sonar systems. With this combined experience, the STR team will design and develop a mix of ac ...

  10. Autonomous System Control via Social Insect Models (ASC-SIM)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: SB162005

    Boston Fusion Corp. and Arizona State University propose to research and develop Autonomous System Control via Social Insect Models (ASC-SIM). We will develop a unified approach that combines: swarm-based scenarios of national interest; predictive social insect models including an underlying ontology that incorporates insect, model, and scenario features; graph-based search to select the most app ...
