Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-090
Budget: 10/15/14 - 04/15/15

The need for human trainers to role-play the participants with whom a trainee must interact limits the effectiveness of both simulators and part task training (PTT) devices for individuals and small groups. The objective of this research is to design and prove the feasibility of our architecture for speech-enabled, synthetic role-players for a g...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-023
Budget: 09/04/14 - 05/27/15

ABSTRACT: ORION will develop and demonstrate voice-enabled intelligent agents to improve the realism of integrated combat operations training and rehearsal. We will implement them in the Joint Theater Air Ground Simulation System (JTAGSS), an Air Support Operations Center (ASOC) simulation, but they are adaptable to a wide range of military an...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Office of the Secretary of Defense
Topic: OSD11-CR3
Budget: 03/20/12 - 09/20/12

To provide effective communication and coordination training to Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) crewmembers, we propose a prototype adaptive training communication environment using our T-BORG simulation and integration framework to incorporate new and pre-existing intelligent agents and synthetic teammates at various levels of fidelity. The pr...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Iowa

Agency: Army
Topic: A06-T030
Budget: 09/01/06 - 08/31/07

The eye is extremely sensitive to laser radiation and can be permanently damaged from direct or reflected beams. In the military environments, laser injuries may be a result of battlefield laser rangefinders, target designators, or enemy action. Individuals involved in high energy laser research or medical therapeutic lasers are also at risk fro...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-016
Budget: 04/27/06 - 02/27/07

The proposed project offers a solution to an important problem faced by logistics planners in their endeavor to optimize defense spending. The problem is that the automation tools that are available to the logistics analyst are not integrated and therefore are cumbersome to run. For example, the Logistics Composite Model (LCOM), a primary tool...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-109
Budget: 09/21/00 - 08/30/01

Our Phase II proposal builds on the successful proof-of-concept in ORION's Phase I effort. The device employed is the IASD (Amtech Systems Division) Intellitagr 500 passive radio frequency identification (RFID) system. We demonstrated that we have a robust and reliable method of determining tag temperature in a complex RF environment. These c...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-109
Budget: 12/17/98 - 06/30/99

Internal temperature of a howitzen prepellant grain mill be measured through the use of a Radio Frequency Identification (RRID) tag and, remote reader. Temperature is calculated from the changing response of the tags normal characteristic return to the reader as a functions of temperature. The resultant system will provide very small (approx. 1 ...
