  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. Processes for Fabrication of Atomically Precise Strongly Correlated Materials

    SBC: Xallent LLC            Topic: ST17C002

    Developing knowledge-driven nanoelectronics for military applications requires understanding the fundamental physics that governs the behavior of the underlying materials. Strongly correlated materials have very desirable properties such as interfacial superconductivity, ferroelectricity, ferromagnetism, and huge magnetoresistance, which make them an ideal set of candidates to integrate with semic ...

  3. Complex Networks for Computational Urban Resilience (CONCUR)

    SBC: PERCEPTRONICS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: ST17C003

    CONCUR develops a computational framework for assessing and characterizing urban environments stability or fragility in response to volatility and stress, identifying specific weaknesses as well as key tipping points which could lead to rapid systemic failure. CONCUR explicitly models urban environments as emergent complex systems, focusing attention on the critical triggers that could lead to rap ...

  4. Human Performance Optimization: Ketone Esters for Optimization of Operator Performance in Hypoxia

    SBC: HVMN Inc.            Topic: SOCOM17C001

    In the setting of altitude-induced hypoxia, operator cognitive capacity degrades and can compromise both individual and team performance. This degradation is linked to falling brain energy (ATP) levels and an increased reliance on anaerobic energy production from glucose. Ketone bodies are the evolutionary alternative substrate to glucose for brain metabolic requirements; previous studies have sho ...

  5. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: ST13A005

    We propose to design, fabricate and test turbine blade configurations in a flow driven by a continuous detonation wave engine with a goal of understanding the physics and efficiency of such an integrated device. Analysis based on CFD models and cycle perf

  6. Generation and amplification of gravitational waves for military communications

    SBC: SLS, GR LLC            Topic: ST13A003

    We propose to construct a parametric amplifier and oscillator system for generating and detecting gravitational microwaves using a moving, impermeable superconducting membrane as its active element. A configuration of three adjacent, high-Q SRF cylindrical cavities will be constructed, consisting of a single pump cavity separated from a double signal and idler cavity by means of this membrane, ...

  7. Adaptive Visualization of Social Networks (ADVIS)

    SBC: PERCEPTRONICS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: ST12A004

    This proposal is to extend into Phase II our development of a new system for Adaptive Visualization of Social Networks (ADVIS). Recent years have seen a dramatic increase in the collection and study of social network data. Numerous social network visualizations have been developed to support user exploration and understanding of these data. However even in the few best systems, cognitive and de ...

  8. A High Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    In Phase I MER demonstrated the superior performance and power-to-weight ratios of the VS-Rotary engine. In Phase II MER will team with the University of Arizona who will provide engine modeling, simulation, and analysis along with advanced precision machining and fabrication. MER will also team with NCE of Tucson to provide test and systems integration development of the engine to the applicatio ...

  9. Low Control Voltage, Thin Film Multiferroic Tunable Devices for RF Applications

    SBC: QUINSTAR TECHNOLOGY, INCORPORATED            Topic: ST13B003

    We propose a novel suspended multiferroic thin film structure fabricated by semiconductor processing technologies as the basis for the approach to designing the multiferroic microstrip-based circuit elements such as tunable filters. The proposed approach

  10. A High-Level Operator Abstraction for GPU Graph Analytics

    SBC: Royal Caliber            Topic: ST13B004

    We propose to build a framework around an operator formulation to enable rapid development of massively parallel solutions to large graph problems. Graph algorithms are expressed by a small number of operators that are applied to components of the graph.
