System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face RecognitionSBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: SOCOM18A001
The objective of this proposal is to develop instrumentation and algorithms for acquiring facial features for facial recognition in low- and no-light conditions.We will use cross-spectrum matching by exploiting infrared polarimetric imagery which tends to show features that match more closely visible imagery than conventional infrared.In addition to thermal infrared, we will also test subjects in ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Inhibiting Prolyl Hydroxylase to Mimic Natural Acclimatization to High Altitude to Improve Warfighter Performance at High AltitudeSBC: Research Logistics Company Topic: SOCOM17C001
Acclimatization is the long-term adjustment that humans experience when exposed for weeks or months to high altitude. Acclimatization is important in this context because a warfighter who is acclimatized to high altitude is immune to high altitude illness, has superior work capacity, and has cognitive function approaching that found at sea level. In other words, the acclimatized warfighter is opti ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Oxygen Production and Delivery on DemandSBC: GLOBAL RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT INC Topic: DHA17B005
This proposal is in response to the Defense Health Agency 2017 Phase I SBIR topic 17B-005.The approach is the use of a membrane oxygen pump using newly developed nano-thickness membranes with all the layers less than 1 micron total.Nanometer thickness membranes enable more oxygen output per surface area at temperatures of 300-600 C than current state-of-the -art 600-800 C membranes that are 50-300 ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
Bio-mathematical Models of Aggregated Tissues & Organ PropertiesSBC: Corvid Innovation LLC Topic: DHP16A001
Realistic surgical simulation requires a combination of representative tissue geometry, accurate tissue material properties and lifelike tool-tissue interaction forces. Recent advances in computational power and imaging modalities have provided the capability to represent the anatomical details required for surgical training; however, the mathematical models which govern the underlying tissue pro ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
Bio-Mathematical Models of Aggregated Tissues & Organ PropertiesSBC: BIOMOJO LLC Topic: DHP16A001
BioMojo LLC and the Departments of Mathematics and Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, will develop a preliminary bio mathematical model framework to represent how human tissues interact and behave at their boundaries. Tissue interaction properties (e.g. tensile, shear, friction, and so forth) of connective, epithelial, muscular, and nervous tissue including su ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical SimulationsSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: DHP16A001
Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
