The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. NIR Dyes for Enhanced Analyte Sensing In Vivo

    SBC: PROFUSA, INC.            Topic: SB12A003

    Continuous monitoring of body chemistries for metabolic monitoring, monitoring concentration of biothreats, early detection of sickness, and stress monitoring has the potential to enhance warrior performance. Currently available sensors are inaccurate and have short lifetimes, primarily due to the body"s foreign body response (FBR) to implanted materials. PROFUSA"s tissue-integrating sen ...

  2. First Principles Selection of Social Media Visualizations

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: SB12A004

    Current visualizations of social networks, such as node-link diagrams, can be ineffective because they often do not clearly demonstrate key patterns or anomalies. Meanwhile, new advances in social network visualization continue to emerge and we would like to employ these tools when applicable - by leveraging cognitive first principles, we can better determine applicability. As a solution, we pro ...

  3. A High Stability, Monolithic, Spiral Reference Cavity&Integrated Source for Application to Ultra-stable Microwave Generation

    SBC: HQPHOTONICS INC.            Topic: SB121001

    Frequency division of a stable optical reference using frequency combs is a proven technique to create the highest stability microwave signals, especially for close-to-carrier offset frequencies. The prospects for miniaturization of these systems are good based on recent progress in microcombs, high-Q microresonators, and coherent sources. However, there remain technical issues that must be solv ...

  4. Design of Robot Control Interfaces

    SBC: Anthrotronix, Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    For humans and robots to effectively work together, they must share a common understanding of concepts defining the environment and the relationship of those concepts. In this proposal, we present an approach for dynamic interface creation which takes advantage of a robot-centric ontology. We first define a taxonomy based on perceptions and capabilities of the robot, as well as the input and outp ...

  5. Design of Robot-Operator Interaction for Disaster Situations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    Currently Unmanned Ground Vehicles are teleoperated, requiring operators to be both vigilant and fully engaged throughout the operation. While increasing the level of autonomy of UGVs potentially reduces both the workload and cognitive load on operators, realizing the promise of autonomy is difficult in deployment. Remote operation of UGVs is subject to unreliable communication and mobility chall ...

  6. Adaptive Visualization of Social Networks (ADVIS)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: SB12A004

    This proposal is to develop a new system for Adaptive Visualization of Social Networks (ADVIS). Numerous social network visualization systems have been produced in recent years. But even in the few top systems cognitive science and design principles have been applied in an ad hoc and non-systemic manner. Accordingly, each visualization system is a one-of, which may be fine-tuned to a particular ...

  7. Broad photonic-based Tunable High Quality Factor RF Filter

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB12A006

    Leveraging Agiltron"s industrial leading developments and production of high speed fiber optical components and modules as well as commercial photonic devices, we propose to develop a new class of high performance tunable RF filters and filter banks for advanced RF systems. The approach is closely coupled with recent progress in photonic devices and fiber optic devices to push the filter perf ...

  8. Frequency Stabilized Laser for use in Microwave Generation

    SBC: Boulder Precision Electro-optics            Topic: SB121001

    We construct a frequency stabilized laser which will generate 10 GHz microwaves with Phase noise -100 dBC/Hz at 1 Hz, or equivalently, an optical frequency with an Allan Deviation of 8e-16 and a drift rate of<1 Hz/s. This is achieved with a silicon reference cavity (for short-term stability) which is disciplined at long times with a lock to a saturated absorption feature in an acetylene line. ...

  9. Biometrics-at-a-distance

    SBC: VAWD APPLIED SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: SB121004

    VAWD Applied Science and Technology is pleased to offer the following proposal in response to DARPA"s Small Business Initiative SB121-004, Biometrics-at-a-Distance. VAWD"s experience with development and testing of stand-off range Sense-Through-the-Wall (STTW) and Foliage Penetration (FOPEN) radars for detection and tracking of human motion in last five years enable VAWD to propose the ...

  10. Low Visibility Decoy Flare

    SBC: General Sciences, Incorporated            Topic: SOCOM09002

    Low visibility rotary aircraft decoys are needed to protect vehicles against heat seeking missile attacks without illuminating the target which exposes the aircraft to small arms fire and potentially compromising the mission. The novel approach to this challenge is to produce a decoy which emits only in the bands of interest utilizing techniques such as containment and composition selection to op ...
