Closed-Loop Extracranial Activation using Reinforcement-learning (CLEAR)SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: AF17BT002
Increased workloads and operational pressures can degrade human analysts cognitive performance, jeopardizing their ability to safely and effectively carry out mission-critical tasks. To avoid overload and maximize the potential of human operators, a method for conducting real-time evaluation of cognitive state, combined with means to dynamically enhance performance, is required. Novel technologies ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
Mentoring and Responsive Learning through Intelligent Nautical Skill-modeling, Prompting, Intervention, and Feedback during Instructor-Controlled ExerSBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: N18AT014
The safety and operational success of the U.S. Navy (USN) depends on expert navigation, seamanship, and shiphandling skills. Tragically, the Navy experienced four major incidents in 2017. The resulting USN Comprehensive Review identified lapses in basic seamanship and safe navigation skills as contributing factors, reinforcing the critical need for rigorous shiphandling training and proficiency as ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNavy
Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current StimulationSBC: QUANTUM APPLIED SCIENCE & RESEARCH INC Topic: AF17BT002
Because of rising demand for human analysts and more efficient processing of increasingly large and challenging amounts of intelligence, human limitations on mental workload, cognitive fatigue, and attentionor task engagement, need to be accurately monitored in real-time in order to provide sensitive detection of impaired cognitive states. It is a challenge to continuously monitor these cognitive ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
Portable Electrochemical Hydrogen Peroxide Generator for Enclosed-Area DecontaminationSBC: GINER INC Topic: A06T004
GES proposes to develop the electrochemical alkaline hydrogen peroxide (HP) generator and integrate it with neutralization and evaporation subsystems to form a prototype HP vapor generator for decontamination of enclosed areas. The focus of GES’s involvement shall be the advancement of our electrolyzer technology and the evaluation of various evaporation schemes. USC will focus on modeling the c ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseArmy
Software Tool for Composite Durability PredictionSBC: METIS DESIGN CORP Topic: A06T027
Durability is the effect of time dependant processes, including fatigue, creep, moisture absorption, thermal-oxidation, abrasion, chemical reactions and physical ageing on mechanical properties. The ability to predict accurately the durability of composite materials and structures is critical to successfully designing for longevity. The existence of models alone is not sufficient; practical soft ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseArmy
Bulk Nitride, Exchange-Coupled MagnetSBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: A06T003
The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of using an innovative deposition process for making Sm2Fe17Nx/á-Fe16N2 magnetic materials in bulk quantities. In addition, exchange-coupled nanostructured composites of these materials will be produced. The advantage of this process is that it allows precise control over the deposition ions so that the morphology of the materials ca ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseArmy
Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Rapid Maneuvering of Space AssetsSBC: BUSEK CO INC Topic: AF06T001
Busek Co. Inc. and Stanford University propose to jointly develop and test a high power plasma propulsion concept called the Coaxial High EnerGy (CHENG) thruster. This high efficiency (> 85%) pulsed system will be capable of average thrust levels commensurate to chemical propulsion (10^4 N/m^2), but with an Isp comparable to electrostatic propulsion (4000-50,000 s). Both thrust and Isp will be va ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseAir Force
A High Current Microfabricated Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Array with BallastingSBC: BUSEK CO INC Topic: AF06T018
High current density carbon nanotube-based field emission arrays with uniform emission will be developed under this program. Working in conjunction with MIT, microfabrication techniques will be used to produce high density arrays of CNT emitters on substrates which incorporate feedback to ensure uniformity of emission between emitters. The feedback techniques employed will minimize thermal effec ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseAir Force
