Phase 2 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-07-041
Budget: 09/01/09 - 08/31/11

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This program will demonstrate the potential for commercial success of a novel approach for tracking and displaying the position and orientation of instruments in image-guided cancer interventions. Prototype systems will be demonstrated in selected pancreatic procedures in human subjects. New clinical applicat...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-04-94
Budget: 05/01/05 - 04/30/06

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall objective of the proposed cooperative research and development project is the implementation and validation of an advanced instrument tracking technology to be used by the surgeon, the radiologist, the gastroenterologist, and other physicians to better enable image-guided cancer treatment, thro...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-059
Budget: 09/15/04 - 09/15/06

A critical military requirement exists for a fast, cost-effective, six-degrees-of-freedom (6DOF) technology that can track a pilot's helmet though rear-projection screens and is immune to distortion and interference from scatterers of magnetic/electrical energy. Building upon Phase I research that demonstrated feasibility of projecting ligh...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: PHS91-002
Budget: 12/11/03 - 12/31/06

A critical constraint in computer-assisted robotic procedures is limited 3D visualization. Besides presenting health risks, X-ray and fluoroscopy permit 2D vision only and cannot always meet precise localization requirements. A real-time 3D tracking device is needed to solve key localization issues in robotic and image-guided procedures. A DC ma...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: DARPA92-176
Budget: 10/27/03 - 07/30/05

Ascension Technology proposes to develop a fast, six degrees-of-freedom tracker, phasorBIRD, immune to cockpit and helmet scatterers of magnetic/electrical field energy. It will integrate seamlessly with helmet-mounted displays in tactical aircraft, tracked ground vehicles, and combat air operations centers (CAOCs). Design features will enable i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 08/04/03 - 01/31/04

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ultrasound is widely used for imaging of blood vessels because it is non-invasive, real-time, and relatively inexpensive. Reliable quantitative evaluation of blood vessels plays a pivotal role in cardiovascular disease diagnosis and follow-up intervention to avoid progression to life or limb-threatening st...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-059
Budget: 07/14/03 - 04/14/04

Ascension Technology proposes to develop a fast, new six degrees-of-freedom tracker, phasorBIRDTM, immune to cockpit and helmet scatterers of magnetic/electrical field energy. It will integrate seamlessly with training simulators, aircraft, tanks, and combat air operations centers (CAOCs). Design features will enable it to exceed static accuracy...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 07/15/94 - 07/14/95

The objective is to complete development and undertake clinical testing of a miniaturized six degrees-of-freedom (6D) spatial locator for use in acquiring multiplane medical imagery. In Phase I, we proved the feasibility of extrapolating a miniaturized locator from our pulsed DC magnetic field generation and sensing technology. We now propose en...
