  1. Handheld Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: TRX SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Military personnel often operate within urban, cavernous, foliage covered or indoor environments. In these areas, position navigation and time information becomes difficult and in some cases impossible to deduce from GPS signals alone. Under the proposed effort TRX will develop and implement an Android-based application that delivers GPS-denied navigation and mapping for tactical battlefield use. ...

  2. High Fidelity Synthesis of Dynamic Social Networks using Measurement-based Calibration

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    We propose to develop a systematic approach of synthetically generating diverse types of large-scale, dynamic and high fidelity social network data via measurement calibration. Social network research needs access to realistic social media datasets for testing social network theory and developing network algorithms. However, the available social network data are either small, static, or cannot be ...

  3. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  4. Realtime interlinked software for distributed Non-latent N-DOF operations

    SBC: Heron Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB123004

    An architecture for linking geographically disparate N-DOF test beds to facilitate real-time distributed operations is proposed. An industry supported middleware solution, OpenDDS, is proposed as a basis for the required simulation software. A survey of existing laboratory conditions is performed. Adaptation to existing laboratory conditions is provided through the abstraction of simulation requ ...

  5. MyASL Quizmaker

    SBC: Institute For Disabilities Research & Training Inc            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: American Sign Language (ASL) is a visual and gestural language that is distinct from English, has its own grammar, syntax, vocabulary, and no text representation. Despite the differences between the languages, students who use ASL are typically assessed with protocols for English-speaking students, as few exist specifically for students who use ASL. Not surprisingly, prior research shows ...

  6. Design of Robot Control Interfaces

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    For humans and robots to effectively work together, they must share a common understanding of concepts defining the environment and the relationship of those concepts. In this proposal, we present an approach for dynamic interface creation which takes advantage of a robot-centric ontology. We first define a taxonomy based on perceptions and capabilities of the robot, as well as the input and outp ...

  7. Visual Interaction for Network Information (VINI)

    SBC: Next Century Corporation            Topic: SB12A004

    Next Century and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) propose to demonstrate a combination of theoretically-guided experimental-design, complex data sets, and embodied cognitive models to study and predict design and data factors that influence human performance in complex visualizations of large network data. We will leverage RPI"s Visual Interaction Architecture (VIA) which features an experim ...

  8. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this SBIR effort we will design (Phase I) and demonstrate (Phase II) an integrated silicon electronic-photonic upconversion receiver that when used with our photonic backend will allow for a highly sensitive, real-time, and economical millimeter wave (mmW) imaging system. The development of this chip leverages recent progress in CMOS and SiGe HBT high speed analog circuit design and integrates ...

  9. Virtual Responder: Blended Reality for Teaching STEM Education and EMT Skills

    SBC: Breakaway, Ltd.            Topic: SB122004

    Our approach is to use the vHealthCare platform to present First Responder training scenarios through a game, Virtual Responder, designed to teach medical diagnostics and procedures. This mobile application will initially be developed for deployment on an Android tablet with a long-term goal of also being available through iOS operating system as well. Both military and civilian presentations of t ...

  10. Handheld Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB102002

    This Phase II project will extend prototypes and algorithms developed in Phase I for software-based modules for multi-modal command and control of robots using the various sensors and camera hardware on modern handheld devices, i.e. smartphones. Phase I work saw the successful development of new gesture and speech-based control interfaces for driving, manipulation, and surveillance. Phase II work ...
