  2. 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 ...

  3. Automated Microscopic Malaria Diagnosis

    SBC: Diagnostic Vision Corporation            Topic: A08T036

    This SSTR research project will develop a computerized microscope based imaging system that will allow location and quantization of malarial parasites. The system will automatically scan a blood smear, locating the red cells and parasites. A digital image display will allow interaction with an operator to confirm or reject objects. In Phase II the initial effort to identify trophozoites will be ...

  4. Bio-Inspired Copolymer Membranes for Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    Implementation of new technologies for soldier survivability often requires lightweight and reliable power sources. Direct-Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFCs) are attractive both in military and consumer electronics applications where their energy density, power output, and lifetime make them ideally suited to address weight and power limitations. DMFCs have been slow to materialize especially due to dras ...

  5. Cell Culture Approaches to Generating Brown Adipose Tissue for Autologous Transplantation

    SBC: ENERGESIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: A11aT034

    Obesity and its associated metabolic complications including diabetes are becoming increasingly prevalent in the general population as well as in military personnel. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a major site of energy expenditure through thermogenesis, which is mediated by the mitochondrial uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1). Studies in animals over the last 30 years as well as recent data in humans str ...

  6. Cloud-based Autonomous Real-time Malware Analysis (CARMA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT020

    The amount of new malware encountered daily is accelerating at an unprecedented rate, an explosion that is also reflected in target and attack vector diversity. There has also been a dramatic increase in the use of malware kits, a problem in its own right because kits allow adversaries to easily create one-time-use malware variants for which generic signatures and general solutions are neither pra ...

  7. Compact, Rugged, and Low-Cost, Wavelength-Versatile Burst Laser

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: A11aT009

    Q-Peak Inc., in collaboration with The Johns Hopkins University (JHU), proposes to develop an extremely compact, air-cooled, lightweight, multi-wavelength, burst-mode laser based on the combination of a Q-switched, Nd-doped, oscillator-amplifier laser, and efficient, robust nonlinear optical frequency converters.

  9. DYNAMICALLY PROGRAMMABLE AND ADAPTIVE MULTI-BAND COMPRESSIVE IMAGING SYSTEM

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT007

    Bridger Photonics and the University of Arizona will develop a passive multi-band compressive sensor for imaging and object recognition applications. The Army has identified a need for multi-band imagery for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions among others. Multi-band systems offer enhanced discrimination capability and the ability to perform in adverse conditions (at night, smo ...

  10. Electrochemical Generation of Hydrogen from Methanol

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A11aT012

    The US Army has identified limitations of the DMFC (poor efficiency) and RMFC (complex system, high temperature process) approaches, and is soliciting innovation that will enable high efficiency hydrogen generation from methanol in a simple approach that has minimal thermal signature. It is the objective of this project to address these needs through the development of a novel hybrid electrochemic ...
