Human Performance OptimizationSBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC Topic: SOCOM17C001
Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Inhibiting Prolyl Hydroxylase to Mimic Natural Acclimatization to High Altitude to Improve Warfighter Performance at High AltitudeSBC: Research Logistics Company Topic: SOCOM17C001
Acclimatization is the long-term adjustment that humans experience when exposed for weeks or months to high altitude. Acclimatization is important in this context because a warfighter who is acclimatized to high altitude is immune to high altitude illness, has superior work capacity, and has cognitive function approaching that found at sea level. In other words, the acclimatized warfighter is opti ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face RecognitionSBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC Topic: SOCOM18A001
Face recognition performance using deep learning has seen dramatic improvements in recent years. This improvement has been fueled in part by the curation of large labeled training datasets with millions of images of hundreds of thousands of subjects.This results in effective generalization for matching over pose, illumination, expression and age variation, however these datasets have traditionally ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
AeroQUEST: Aeromedical Quantified Understanding via Experimental Standards ToolkitSBC: APTIMA INC Topic: DHA17C001
Adverse physiological events (PEs) have plagued warfighters piloting military aircraft, in particular PEs involving hypoxia and cockpit cabin decompression. Though there has been a large variety of research performed in trying to understand the problems and why theyre caused, there are inefficiencies due to the lack of standardized cross-laboratory protocols, procedures, and metrics. To address th ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
System for Nighttime and Low-Light Face RecognitionSBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: SOCOM18A001
The objective of this proposal is to develop instrumentation and algorithms for acquiring facial features for facial recognition in low- and no-light conditions.We will use cross-spectrum matching by exploiting infrared polarimetric imagery which tends to show features that match more closely visible imagery than conventional infrared.In addition to thermal infrared, we will also test subjects in ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Novel Circulating RNA-based Markers as Diagnostic Biomarkers of Infectious DiseasesSBC: CFD RESEARCH CORP Topic: CBD18A001
In resource limited settings, rapid and accurate diagnosis of infections is critical for managing potential exposures to highly virulent pathogens,whether occurring from an act of bioterrorism or a natural event. This is especially important for hard to detect intracellular bacterial andalphavirus infections, that overlap symptomatically and often treated empirically due to a lack of reliable and ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseOffice for Chemical and Biological Defense
Low-Cost Diagnostic Platform for Rapid Biochemical DetectionSBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: DHA17B004
Triton Systems will develop a novel approach to field-based disease and biochemical diagnostics through innovative use of extremely low cost bioanalytical devices.The proposed platform will provide a low cost, portable, and reliable diagnostic test for on-site use in austere and resource-limited environments.The devices will be highly durable, rugged, and easy to use without user-induced variation ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
Underwater Blast Injury MonitoringSBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: DHA17C002
Triton Systems, Inc. proposes to develop a piezo-textile that can capture underwater explosion pressure wave patterns to ultimately establish and monitor for injury risk severity. We propose to use a state-of-the-art piezo-textile to which we will apply our own proprietary treatments.We will assess our textiles pressure detection performance and durability against a non-textile piezoelectric array ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
Characterization of Piezoelectric Fibers for Sensing Shock Waves from Underwater ExplosionsSBC: ADVANCED MATERIALS & 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. ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseDefense Health Agency
