The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until April, 2020.

  1. A functional and multimodal biofeedback device to treat balance dysfunction in mTBI patients.

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD09H22

    According to existing data, there are more than 1.5 million of Americans sustaining a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each Year. Balance disorders represent one of the main regular problems that patients have to deal with, and thus everyday. Rehabilitation programs do exist but they are dependable of the clinician or physiotherapist and they do not take in account the multimodal aspects of balance co ...

  2. Thermoelectric-Powered Field Kitchen Appliances

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09162

    Cooking appliances in U.S. Army field kitchens are currently heated by burning JP-8 fuel using electrically powered burners. Power is supplied by a separate JP-8 fired generator that serves multiple appliances simultaneously. This is inefficient, as generators are only 20-25% efficient, and unreliable since failure of the generator results in the failure of the entire kitchen operation. This is a ...

  3. Airworthy Cable Angle Measurement System For Slung Load Operations

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A09013

    Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS) has developed and demonstrated the Cable Angle Measurement System, a low-cost, accurate system for measuring a helicopter’s load position and motion at the end of an external sling. By using a camera, an LED target, and custom electronics, the AOS system measures the load’s angle with better than 0.1° accuracy across a 150° field of view and with 0.1°/s ...

  4. Plug & Play Integrated Hybrid Power System for Humanoid Robot

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A10125

    Robotic platforms, such as humanoid robots and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) are significantly contributing to the capabilities of the U.S. Army. The BEAR humanoid robot offers exceptional capabilities for a robotic platform, but its mission duration is substantially constrained by the low volumetric energy density of rechargeable batteries. For maximum operational flexibility, the power sourc ...

  5. LITE Spectrometer for surface bound CBE Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT022

    A stand-off mid-IR based system offers great promise for the detection of chemical, biological or explosive (CBE) agents. Such a system has yet to be realized due mostly to broad spectral features and interfering substances. In this proposal we will demonstrate the feasibility of a system that collects laser induced thermal emission (LITE) from a substance and identifies it as known CBE agent with ...

  6. CMR Oxides Based Microbolometer Focal Plane Array with Reduced 1/f Noise

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: ARMY09T014

    We propose to realize a new class of microbolometer FPA technology with significantly reduced 1/f noise by replacing the sensing material (e.g. VOx) with colossal magnetoresistive (CMR) oxides. The program uniquely combines Agiltron's experience in novel IR imager development and leading academic research on CMR at Los Alamos National Lab (LANL). The LANL Team has developed breakthrough process ...

  7. Vanadium Oxide Photonic Crystal Thermochromic Optical Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09079

    Agiltron proposes to use patterned metal-vanadium oxide layers as a fast, high contrast infrared optical switch. The desired effect, based upon extraordinary optical transmission, has been demonstrated for visible light and should have greater contrast in the infrared. The effect of grain size, thickness and composition (oxygen content) of VO2 on the phase transition temperature and width of hyste ...

  8. Non-rotating Wind Energy Generator

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A10111

    Agiltron, Inc. and Engineering & Scientific Innovations, Inc. propose a new non-rotating wind energy generator, based upon our extensive R&D experiences on aerodynamics, electromagnetic generators, and power management. The generator will have a total volume less than 9 cubic meters, total weight much less than 300kg, and generate more than 3kW at wind velocity of 10 m/s. The design is highly-mobi ...

  9. Predicting the Combined Impact of Social and Environmental Models (PreCISE Models)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD09HS1

    While long-term, global climate change has received the attention and concern of the world’s governments and populations, less consideration has been given to the short-term seasonal and inter-annual changes in climate likely to greatly influence the management of water, food, and energy resources. The Office of the Secretary of Defense and the United States Army Corps of Engineers seek to deve ...

  10. Authoring By Cultural Demonstration

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD09HS4

    Modern military missions require soldiers to communicate effectively and at a personal level with people whose cultures, languages, lifestyles, and beliefs are very different from their own. Constructing suitable, game-based, culturally relevant scenarios to prepare soldiers for effective communication is difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Aptima proposes an innovative extension of cognitiv ...
