  1. FluentBuddy device to enhance the sensory and motor function of individuals with speech communication disabilities

    SBC: AVENTUSOFT L.L.C.            Topic: 84133S1

    This project develops FluentBuddy, a prototype application for iOS and Android platforms to assist in the treatment of speech and communication disorders with a focus on the physiological and anatomical system (i.e. voice disorders, speech sound disorders, motor speech disorders, and other disabilities in children and adults). The project has three goals: (1) enhancing sensory and motor function t ...

  2. Mobile Communications App for Deaf and Hard of Hearing

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: 84133S2

    This product develops and evaluates a proof-of-concept, mobile speech-to-sign translator that integrates continuous speech recognition software with natural language processing and Vcom3D’s Signing Avatar animated American Sign Language technology. This speech-to-sign the application is designed to run on iPhone/iPod or Android smartphones, providing Deaf and hard of hearing (D/HH) learners the ...

  3. Mobile Signing Math Dictionary with Mouth Morphemes

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: 84133S2

    Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing (Deaf/hh) persons rely heavily on facial movements for communication, whether in American Sign Language (ASL), Signed English (SE), or Spoken English. In ASL, signers add “mouth morphemes”, similar to speech movements, to signs to distinguish concepts that use the same manual sign. Hard-ofhearing persons who use spoken communication, read mouth shapes to distinguish si ...

  4. The Characterization and Mitigation of Radiation Effects on Nano-technology Microelectronics

    SBC: Defense Electronics Corporation            Topic: DTRA121002

    Defense Electronics Corporation (DEC) proposes an innovative radiation hardened by design (RHBD) and reliability improvement solution for silicon, III-V compounds (e.g. SiGe, SiC, GaN, InP, GaAs,), carbon nanotubes (CNT), and graphene. The method is based on analyzing chip-partitioned quiescent current signatures associated with failure modes common to these process technologies. Furthermore, the ...

  5. Tactile Awareness Prompting (TAP) System

    SBC: Engineering Acoustics Incorporated            Topic: 84133S1

    This project develops an ambulatory remote operated Tactile Awareness Prompting (TAP) system to be used within educational and clinical environments for students who have social skills deficits. Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) exhibit deficits related to social initiations and conversational skills. Children with such disabilities often do not have the necessary social skills to m ...

  6. Integration of Voice Input and CD-ROM Technology to Provide

    SBC: Computer Multimedia            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Vocational Rehabilitation has determined that efforts to adequately serve Deaf clients could be greatly enhanced by a voice-to-sign translation system (Shalls, 1997; Ward, 1997). It is hard for DVR to hire enough VR Counselors fluent in sign language (Shalls) and very expensive to hire interpreters to handle all communication between Counselors and Deaf clients. Very few prospect ...

  7. Signing Avatars

    SBC: SEAMLESS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Over 500,000 hearing disabled Americans are currently excluded from communicating in their most expressive idiom over long distance communications systems. Although widespread availability of electronic mail (e-mail) and electronic facsimile (fax) provide the means for these individuals to communicate in written English, both speed of communication and the level of personal interaction are signif ...

  8. Radiation Effects Modeling for High Yield, Reliable Integrated Circuits

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Defense Special Weapons Agency (DSWA) has identified a need to improve the radiation hardness of advanced integrated circuit technologies. To be practical, this must be achieved in a cost effective way. This proposal by AET, Inc. directly addresses these concerns. Specifi-cally, this proposal provides a means to achieve significant advance in radiation hardness of large scale integrated cir ...

  9. Nuclear Weapons Effects Phenomenology

    SBC: Applied Physics Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The nuclear weapons community has traditionally focused on the next generation or level of weapon capability complimented by gathering and analysis of actual test data. Now, with the cessation of actual weapons testing, there is an increased need to use the actual test data in modeling techniques to better understand the phenomenology and potential effects of nuclear weapons. The first phase of ...

  10. Laser Turbulence Measurements in the LB/TS

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Turbulence of gas flows by its very nature is one of the most difficult things to model and measure. We propose to develop a new way of measuring the turbulence and to compare these measurements to predictions using the k-epsilon model. Typical measurements, in the past, use smoke, Schlierin or shadow graph techniques to visually infer turbulence characteristics. These features are either motio ...
