  1. Advanced Algorithms and Controls for Superior Robotic All-Terrain Mobility

    SBC: PROTOINNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: T1101

    ProtoInnovations, LLC (PI) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have formed a partnership to research, develop, and experimentally test a suite of methods for significantly improving the safety, mean travel speed, and rough-terrain access of wheeled planetary exploration rovers. We will accomplish this by developing algorithms for all-terrain adaptive locomotion. This will include a ...

  2. Ultrastable and Compact Deep UV Laser Source for Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: T801

    Deep-ultraviolet (UV) Raman spectroscopy is a powerful method to collect chemically specific information about complex samples because deep-UV (?? < 250 nm) excitation shows an over 200-fold greater efficiency compared to commonly used 785 nm excitation and has the ability to avoid fluorescence background in the Raman spectra. The availability of compact, robust, and reliable deep-UV laser source ...

  3. Intelligent Spectrometry for Robotic Explorers

    SBC: Mesh Robotics, LLC            Topic: T801

    Our aim in this project is to apply the state-of-the-art in science autonomy, including the PI's recent work at Carnegie Mellon in areas of automatic spectrometer targeting and spectra collection, science-guided path planning, and orbital terrain classification, to the creation of Intelligent Spectrometry for Robotic Explorers (ISRE). In our vision, ISRE will enable real-time, on-board analysis of ...

  4. Powerful Source of Collimated Coherent Infrared Radiation with Pulse Duration Fewer than Ten Cycles

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A14AT006

    Few-cycle mid-infrared lasers are highly demanded for a variety of practical applications. NP Photonics and University of Arizona propose to develop a wavelength tunable and power-scalable optical parametric laser system at 8-12 micron capable of producing collimated few-cycle pulses with pulse energy>100 microJoule. In this phase I program, we will design the whole laser system and do a feasibil ...

  5. Technology to Regulate Circadian Rhythm for Health and Performance

    SBC: BRAIN STATE TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A14AT009

    We propose a wearable, dual-use neurotechnology device. The Personal Brainwave Headband, driven by tablet or smartphone, is designed for noninvasive closed-loop acoustic stimulation, to permit improved circadian regulation. It will measure brain electrical activity from scalp overlying four key sectors of cortex, perform high-resolution spectral analysis of the signals, and use software algorith ...
