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. Personal Heating System

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    While the benefits of auxiliary heating of the human body when exposed to extremely cold temperatures are well known, there is currently no suitable technology developed to provide body heating in a completely autonomous and mobile system. In Phase I of the proposed program Aspen Systems will investigate the various technologies available to provide auxiliary heating to the body and identify thos ...

  2. Advanced ATC for Tactical Information Processing


    The proposed effort is directed at achieving Automatic Target Cueing (ATC) performance at levels which are essential for near term system deployment. The performance required for deployment is beyond the capability of current systems. The design emphasis is to have robust performance under a full range of operating conditions, and to use techniques which lead to efficient real time implementatio ...

  3. Human Dynamics Modeling: The Digital Biomechanics Laboratory

    SBC: BOSTON DYNAMICS            Topic: N/A

    An advanced human simulation system could serve as a digital biomechanics laboratory in which simulated humans perform useful tasks under novel conditions. It will allow us to measure loads, forces, and energy levels in humans that are difficult if not impossible to obtain any other way. It could be used to evaluate the effectiveness of clothing, footwear, equipment or movement strategies. Rapid ...

  4. Cognition-driven Tool for Visual Countermeasure Evaluation

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design a model of visual target acquisition that can predict human performance in detecting low-contrast targets in complex scenes. This model will build on current state-of-the-art computational models of early human vision and visual search, and use proven cognitive modeling methods (belief networks for situation assessment and expert systems for knowledge-based reasoning) to mode ...

  5. C2WARS: Command and Control Warfare Agent-based Reasoning System

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I effort proposes to prototype and demonstrate a Case-Based Reasoning Tool for Command and Control Warfare (C2W) Strategy Development. Our effort is motivated by the need to thoroughly understand and graphically depict vulnerabilities in the information battle space since Intelligence Preparation of the Battle Space (IPIBS) is the fundamental basis for successful execution of C2-attack ...

  6. AVID: Agent for Visualization and Intelligent Decision-Aiding

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a robust, adaptive Agent for visualization and Intelligent Decision-aiding (AVID). The AVID architecture consists off four modules, one each for: decision-aiding, visualization, profile adjustments, and communication and coordination. the structure of the key decision-aiding and visualization modules closely matches a unified cognitive theory, so as to provide assistance at ...

  7. Residual Life Indicator Based on Dye Desorption

    SBC: CHEMMOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a novel type of Residual Life Indicator (RLI) for determining the remaining capacity after prolonged storage of Chemical Protective Garments (CPC). These garments, which are designed for use by troops at risk of exposure to chemical weapons, can be stored for long periods of time in sealed bags. However. if a bag leaks or is punctured, common air pollutants like fuel vapors and p ...

  8. Integrated Vehicle Classification System Using Wavelet/Neural network Processing of Acoustic Emissio


    CYTEL proposes to develop a novel system for robust, high performance identification of ground vehicles from acoustic emissions. Hallmarks of this approach include the identification of an optimal wavelet decomposition for use in extracting robust multidimensional features from the acoustic emission. These wavelet-based features will be processed by additional feature post processing algorithms ...

  9. Thin Film Conductive Matrices for Electrochemical Biosensors

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proliferation of nuclear, biological and chemical (NBC) weapons presents a continuing need for the Army to develop sensors that are "faster, cheaper and better". The requirement is for "multi-agent sensors and detectors providing real-time detection and identification of chemical/biological agents". As a result, the tri-services have had an ongoing interest in biosensors, a class of point se ...

  10. Drug Discovery Through Geration of Gene-Sequence Tags of the P. Falciparum Genome

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Eikos LLC will carry out research designed to address the shortage of drug discovery research for malaria. Using a genes first approach to sequencing the genome of P. Falciparum, Eikos will produce a library of over 2,500 gene sequence tags of P. Falciparum and analyze the resulting database with state-of-the-art bioinformatics tools. In addition, computational folding and initial analysis of pro ...
