  1. HUCBC modulation of Alzheimer's-like pathology and behavioral changes

    SBC: SANERON CCEL THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the past years, we have shown that human umbilical cord blood cells (HUCBC, U-CORD- CELL ) provide cognitive recovery in animal models of neurodegenerative disease. Infusion of HUCBC resulted in reduced infarct volume as well as in rescue of behavioral benefits in an animal model of stroke. We further showed that HUCBC infusion proved to be beneficial in ani ...

  4. A Home Exercise Program (DVD) for Women with Infants and Young Children

    SBC: KLEIN BUENDEL, INC            Topic: NIDA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Becoming a mother is a significant transition in a woman's life. This transition can precipitate major changes in health behaviors, like physical activity. Once a woman has a child she is much less likely to participate in regular, moderate to vigorous physical activity compared to women without children. Thus, new mothers are at risk for future weight gain and ...

  6. Development of Low-Cost Augmented Reality Head Mounted Display

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N09T031

    SA Photonics, in conjunction with our teammates at the University of Arizona, have developed LARS, the low-cost augmented reality system. This system is a see-through HMD used for training and simulation. LARS was designed using an innovative freeform prism combiner which is small, lightweight and has very little obscuration of the outside world. We have partnered with Rockwell Collins Optronics ( ...

  7. Visible Electro-Optical (EO) System and LIDAR Fusion for Low Cost Perception by Autonomous Ground Vehicles

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N11AT020

    The Toyon-MST team proposes to perform research and development of a system which fuses multi-spectral EO and 3D data collected with a low-cost LIDAR to enable improved perception for unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs). The scope of the proposed work includes development of algorithms and software, and development, implementation, integration, testing, and delivery of a prototype, to perform EO-LIDAR ...

  8. Planar, High Frequency, Power Conversion Device Technology

    SBC: TRANSPHORM, INC.            Topic: N09T023

    Transphorm proposes to demonstrate a normally off fast high voltage Gallium Nitride power switch solution. The switch would block to 1200V, have a threshold voltage greater than 5 V, and the phase 2 switch will target an on resistance less than 15 ohm-mm and current more than 1 Amp. To accomplish these targets, Transphorm will combine the design requirements of realizing a high (and positive) thre ...

  9. The Bumps ad device for rapid non invasive quantification of touch sensation

    SBC: Neuro Devices, Inc.            Topic: NCATS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our proposal describes an elegant device called the Bumps that quantifies touch sensation on the fingers at low micron levels. The objectives are to diagnose peripheral neuropathy near its onset, when the possibility for reversal is highest, and to monitor either progression or reversal of neuropathy during treatment. Target neuropathies are those related to ch ...

  10. Electro Optic Avionic Advanced Guidance, Navigation and Control (GNC) Algorithm Development to Enhance the Lethality of Interceptors Against Maneuveri

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T003

    This Phase II effort will further develop a technique to improve current seeker discrimination and tracking capabilities using a unique particle filter algorithm (PFA) approach. The advancement represents a significant upgrade to current and future seekers facing advanced threats in stressing environments. Quantifiable improvements over many facets of the current approach have been realized during ...
