The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 provid ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 perf ...

  6. Sequential Art Authoring and Layout Toolkit for Therapeutic Storytelling (SALTS)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB112003

    SSCI will develop a toolkit for assisting people with limited previous writing experience to write and illustrate a graphic novel as part of a program of treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. This project will include built-in therapeutic aids for Art Therapy, Therapeutic Storytelling, and Narrative Therapy. In Phase I, we will analyze requirements and develop a detailed project plan for P ...

  7. Multifunctional Stabilization Matrix for Biological Samples

    SBC: Spectrasilk, Inc.            Topic: SB112005

    The need for improved biological sample collection and processing for diagnostic applications has grown with the advent of new assays based on small sample sizes and high performance analytics. In contrast to the advances in these analytics, the ability to collect, stabilize, ship and utilize such samples has lagged in terms of development. We offer a relatively simple platform based on recent dis ...

  8. Design and Development of Wafer-Level Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Micro-Camera

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB113002

    Low cost SWIR Micro-Sensors are needed for a variety of Defense and Commercial Applications. Magnolia proposes to investigate packaging and optics integration for short wave infrared focal plane arrays. This will include assessment of materials and manufacturing approaches amendable to the manufacture of wafer level camera. We will determine optimum array format and pixel size for imaging at a t ...

  9. A System to Observe and Classify Interactions for Assessment and Learning (SOCIAL)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB121002

    Military personnel are asked to interact effectively, under stress, with individuals from both similar and dramatically different backgrounds and cultures. The desire for automated, operationally deployable capabilities to improve such interactions has created an interest in the development of technologies to sense and report in real-time on the properties of interaction. To address this need, we ...

  10. INTERACT: Inspection of Normal and Typical Encounters Requiring Asymmetric Collection and Tracking

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB121002

    Because social interactions are ubiquitous for both the police and the military, it is crucial to improve their outcomes. However, assessing the success or failure of social interactions can be rather cumbersome. In order to capture and measure these interactions, video, sound, movement, and other forms of data must be collected and analyzed. However these methods require that comprehensive dat ...
