  1. Metallic Grid Application for Green Ceramic Domes

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: A09008

    Multimode seekers are receiving significant attention as a way to provide more capability in the same package. In some cases, laser, optical and millimeter wave sensors are being combined in a way that requires a common aperture. The requirements for such a system place a tremendous burden on the design and production of such a dome. In the phase I program, Surmet has developed and demonstrated a ...

  8. Actively Compliant Parallel End-Effector Mechanism for Medical Interventions

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: OSD09H09

    Robot-assisted surgery and envisioned diagnostics require the clinician to rely almost solely on visual feedback, pointing to the need for solutions to ensure that contact forces with the anatomy are maintained at clinically safe and effective levels at all times. A 6 degree-of-freedom (DOF) Active Compliance End-effector (ACE) is proposed that is capable of counter-movements in real-time to autom ...

  9. A System to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AFFECT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A09AT006

    Modern military and security scenarios increasingly demand rapid evaluation of human affective states, accurately detecting stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fatigue (SAUF) to assess warfighter effectiveness or to advance security screening and interrogation objectives. In our Phase I effort, we designed and demonstrated a system to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AF ...

  10. Coordinating with Humans by Adjustable-autonomy for Multirobot Pursuit (CHAMP)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A08204

    The need to fight and control the urban terrain is not a new concept for the military; however, there are new obstacles, illustrated in the battles fought and won in Fallujah and Haditha, that make the job of the warfighter much harder. Due to the pioneering work of researchers in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence, there exist promising and significant opportunities for the incorpo ...
