  1. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: iReprogram, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...

  2. Griffon Test Suite

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: DHA17C001

    In this proposal we support the development of a hypoxia test battery by designing and developing a domain general tool suite for processing, synchronizing, and evaluating data from cognitive, behavioral, and physiological measures.The proposed Griffon Tool Suite addresses many of the practical requirements demanded by a flexible test battery. The effort falls into three major thrusts.First, we pr ...

  3. Characterization of Piezoelectric Fibers for Sensing Shock Waves from Underwater Explosions

    SBC: Advanced Materials and Devices            Topic: DHA17C002

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of using piezoelectric fibers to detect shock waves from underwater explosions (UNDEX) and sensing physiological measures such as heart and respiratory rates on warfighters. Piezoelectric fibers will be characterized for their ability so sense different amplitudes and frequencies of shock and vibration. ...

  5. Explainable AI to support Veterans Transition Assistance Programs (XAI-VTAP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB163007

    A challenge for Artificial Intelligence recommenders is explaining their reasoning to users. Humans tend to explain concepts with symbolic narratives, which contrasts the way non-symbolic machine learning represents concepts. This research addresses this challenge by grounding the research in the problem of helping transitioning veterans find relevant careers. The developed prototype will provide ...

  6. Combat Casualty Handoff Automated Trainer (CCHAT)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: DHA17B001

    Combat casualty handoffs are critical communication moments during which responsibility for the patient and important casualty information is transferred between providers. The nature of these handoffs requires specialized training, for which no standardized framework currently exists. The proposed effort aims to develop a capability, compatible with current DoD systems, that provides caregivers w ...

  7. CCHAT Handoff Protocol

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: DHA17B002

    Research has identified that handoffs are particularly important communication processes, during which communication error can lead to patient safety situations. Organizations have created standard practices and training materials to encourage teamwork communication for handoffs, however these do not necessarily capture the needs of military medicine of combat casualty care. Combat casualty handof ...

  8. Enhanced Canine Performance, Protection and Survivability

    SBC: Metro International Biotech, LLC            Topic: SOCOM172002

    Given the benefits of exercise on general health, orally active compounds that can mimic or potentiate the effects of exercise have been of keen interest as therapeutic and dietary ingredients. Our proposed approach for enhancement of USSOCOM Multi-Purpose Canine (MPC) endurance and sensory performance using an exercise mimetic is based on the observation that age-related decline of nicotinamide ...

  9. Cognitive Bias in Online Communication Activities (C-BOCA)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N13AT024

    This effort will analyze publicly available online communication data, uniquely applying empirical results from the cognitive bias literature, to quantify the impact of cognitive biases on exposure to, use of, and propagation of online information. SoarTech, with its partners, will develop and evaluate methods to identify and measure cognitive biases in online information environments. The team wi ...

  10. Group 2 (<55lbs) Unmanned Aerial System for Special Operations Forces Tactical-Level Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance Operations

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM172005

    SeaLandAire Technologies, Inc. (SLA) proposes to meet this Group 2 need with an electric drive concept that will be capable of a 20-30 lbs. modular payload, with comparable range and endurance to current grp 2 ISR UAS, while still maintaining sufficient ISR capabilities. This UAS concept is able to covertly and safely deliver payload to within 1 meter accuracy, then extract a different payload an ...
