  1. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    We propose to investigate, in collaboration with MGH Voice Center and Altec, Inc., application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience of our partner, MGH (including resea ...

  2. Programmable Multi-Frequency Transmitter for Missile Communciations

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: MDA16T005

    Improving capabilities of telemetry systems for next generation e.g. (MOKV) missile defense launch vehicles, kill vehicles, and test/target vehicles subsystems can transform operational testing of such systems and has the potential to increase capabilities of systems that rely on radio communications. As these systems, and their test scenarios become get more complex they will require unprecedente ...

  3. Integrated system for field, clinic and laboratory preparation of biological specimens for microscopy

    SBC: Microscopy Innovations, LLC            Topic: DHP16C004

    Biological tissues collection is problematic and risky even under ideal conditions; when collection occurs in remote locations, or by minimally- trained personnel, as may occur in response to an emerging disease threat, risks are magnified. This proposal addresses this issue by developing a Field Fixation Unit (FFU) for specimen collection that utilizes single-use capsules pre-loaded with fixative ...

  4. Adaptive Optics for Nonlinear Atmospheric Propagation of Laser Pulses

    SBC: ADVANCED SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N17AT024

    Filamentation of ultra-short laser pulse propagation in non-linear media offers significant potentials allowing to address numerous problems in military and commercial sectors. However, practical implementation of this requires an ability to control the USLP at its propagation through inhomogeneous media, like turbulent atmosphere. On the basis of our approach for combating turbulence effects on p ...

  5. Improved High-Frequency Bottom Loss Characterization

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N17AT026

    We propose development of an improved bottom database suitable for use in the frequency range of 1-10 kHz. Measured transmission loss (TL) and reverberation level (RL) will be jointly processed in building the database. The influence of the rough sea surface, rough seafloor, as well as subbottom heterogeneity will be accounted for during database generation. The rough sea surface will be character ...

  6. Evidence-Based, User-Centered Design Process for Improvement of the Utility of the Surface Electronic Warfare Display Suit

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP INC            Topic: N11AT031

    In Naval, surface electronic warfare (EW), visual displays form critical bridges between warfighters and the complex operational radio-frequency (RF) spectrum they must monitor and interpret. Surface electronic warfare operators and supervisors must monitor and interact with multiple, stove-piped display systems in order to perform their work. Further, the visual displays they employ are not desig ...

  7. Technologies to Target Circadian Rhythm Disruption in PTSD

    SBC: Cognionics, Inc.            Topic: A16AT014

    This STTR project will develop a wearable sensor suite for accurate assessment of circadian and sleep rhythms with the goal to identify abnormalities in PTSD patients and enable personalized therapy to help restore their normal functional and quality of life. Phase I has already demonstrated proof-of-principle hardware. The primary Phase II objective is to successfully carry out a human subjects s ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing for Microwave Vacuum Electron Device Cost Reduction

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT010

    The Department of the Navy has a need for the development of an additive manufacturing (AM) process for key vacuum electronic device components to meet on-demand, flexible, and affordable manufacturing requirements. The goal of this Phase II effort is to develop and validate Electron Beam Melting (EBM) additive manufacturing (AM) technology for the production of vacuum electronic devices meeting t ...

  9. INSPIRE- In-Mask Sensors for Physiological Investigation of Respiratory Exhalation

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DHP16C002

    Makel Engineering, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose to demonstrate an advanced multi-modal sensor system for in-situ analysis of exhaled volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for pilots, divers and field patients. The In-Mask Sensors for Physiological Investigation of Respiratory ExhalationINSPIRE combines a micro-gas chromatograph (GC) and miniature ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) for de ...

  10. Man-Portable and Fieldable Mass Spectrometer for Sequencing Peptides

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: A16AT012

    BaySpec Inc., in collaboration with Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, proposes to develop a new portable multi-order mass spectrometry system that can sequence peptides derived from biological agents including bacteria, viruses, and toxins. During Phase I stage, a fully functional prototype instrument, based on an innovative design concept, was successfully built and the performance evaluatio ...
