  1. Automated Support of Robotic Surgical Training, Operations, and Outcomes

    SBC: Spi Surgical, INC            Topic: A10AT029

    Background: Surgical error reduction requires addressing rapid adoption of new surgical technology. We propose development of a networked surgical assessment platform able to collect performance and outcomes data from multiple surgical platforms and sites for dynamic metrics analysis. Goal: Provide surgical signature ("Surgome") of each surgeon by delivering automated performance feedback to ...

  3. Integrated High-Complexity Systems in Silicon Photonics

    SBC: Portage Bay Photonics            Topic: AF10BT34

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and validate (in phase I) detailed designs for highly scaled silicon photonic-electronic chips for applications relevant to the DOD in high-bandwidth data communication. This effort will be closely coordinated with the OPSIS (Optoelectronic Systems Integration in Silicon) project being led at the University of Washington, an effort to create an open foundry process ...

  4. POSS TCP Resin System for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Shipboard Applications

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: N11AT014

    The proposed effort will utilize lithiated POSS in synergistic combination with commercial phosphates to achieve comparable processing characteristics and superior flame retardancy, smoke and toxicity to that of Derakane 510A. The POSS-phosphate synergist package will be formulated into a Hydrex nonhalogenated vinylester resin and superior mechanical properties (interlaminar shear strength and car ...

  5. Low-Power Arctic environmental sensors for UUVs

    SBC: BlueView Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N11AT025

    BlueView Technologies, working with the Applied Physics Laboratory at the University of Washington propose to research and develop the application of high frequency imaging sonar to the problem of sea ice thickness and morphology. The use of compact, low power sonar systems in modern Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUV) can deliver a significant advance in the measurement of sea ice characteristics ...

  6. Compact, Light Weight, Low Cost, Precision, Non-inertial Underwater Navigation Sensor

    SBC: Marport Stout, Inc            Topic: N11AT027

    Doppler velocity logs (DVLs) are an essential component of any integrated autonomous underwater navigation system but the size, weight and cost is not compatible with the small AUVs foreseen for riverine and coastal surveys. The research objective is to develop a small wideband DVL (WB-DVL) which offers a step change in functionality and performance over current acoustic navigation systems and whi ...

  7. Surgical Cockpit-- Multisensory/Multimodal Interfaces for Robotic Surgery

    SBC: Spi Surgical, INC            Topic: A09AT028

    The ongoing military conflicts demonstrate the need to deploy skilled personnel equipped with advanced technology to provide medical and surgical attention as close as possible to the point of injury. A major problem is the occasional mismatch between the type of injury and the type of surgeon available to treat it. Telerobotic surgery is a means to mediate the narrow spectrum of available front l ...

  8. CATALYTIC MEMBRANE REACTOR FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HYDROGEN FROM BUTANOL

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: A10aT009

    A compact and efficient fuel processor that provides clean hydrogen from a high energy density liquid fuel such as butanol will allow fuel cell technology to be realized in military and commercial markets for portable applications. InnovaTek, and its proposal partner Indiana - Purdue University, will build on their combined experience in catalytic reforming to develop catalysts that are optimize ...

  9. Fully autonomous retrieval, turnaround, and launch for a long-endurance UAV with VTOL capability

    SBC: Aerovel Corporation            Topic: N09T001

    We propose to develop techniques and equipment for fully automated retrieval, refueling/ recharging, and relaunch of Aerovel"s Flexrotor. Our method would be suitable for use on a small platform such as a boat in a choppy sea. It would allow the ground-handling cycle to be performed remotely with no manual intervention, and so enable extended missions through remote unattended sites. Planned work ...

  10. Remote Release Device for Marine Mammal Electronic Tags

    SBC: Wildlife Computers, Inc.            Topic: N09T029

    Wildlife Computers presents a remote release device for use with marine mammal data-logging tags proposed with three variations to suit cetaceans and large and small pinnipeds. The device uses innovative approaches such as ElectRelease epoxy for the releasing mechanism and an Argos-based signaling system. Preliminary testing of device components are reviewed in summary from Phase I efforts. Outlin ...
