Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA05-059
Budget: 04/12/06 - 10/31/06

Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) maintenance costs are high, making up as much as 60-70% of the total system life-cycle cost. Moreover, inefficient maintenance policies and procedures can have adverse national security ramifications. We propose a Global visibility and Central Command approach to meet the maintenance and inventory managem...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF05-T002
Budget: 08/01/05 - 05/01/06

Auditory displays that encode spatial audio cues have advanced significantly in recent years, yet, their ability to convey the distance between a sound source and the listener remains limited. This Phase I SBIR project proposes to investigate algorithms capable of adding distance cues to natural and synthesized speech. The particular approach...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Army
Topic: A04-T013
Budget: 07/12/04 - 01/31/05

The ability to determine the direction and characteristics of sounds they hear is one many birds and mammals are endowed with. This biological ability evolved over millions of years, and if one can understand the mechanisms, one expects, we can copy and mimic the capability to some extent in practical applications. Audio cues are also essen...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-T012
Budget: 07/01/04 - 04/30/05

Two obstacles to expanding speech technology application domains are the limited discrimination of intentional speech from (i) background noise, and (ii) incidental interfering speech, or background chatter. Since 1997, our company IC Tech has been engaged in developing technologies and solutions for speech enhancement towards better speech ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Michigan State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N04-T014
Budget: 07/01/04 - 04/30/05

The quality of the training experience provided by virtual reality (VR) systems is directly related to the degree to which the range of human sensory modalities is stimulated. Audio cues are an essential for immersion in virtual environments, and also vital for situation awareness for soldiers. Therefore, realistic auditory cues should be par...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2003
Budget: 01/01/03 - 12/31/03

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project aims to develop custom signal processing algorithms and embedded software for arrays of tiny neural probes that are currently being manufactured for simultaneously recording the activity of multiple neurons. Most of the effort expended to date on neural probes has focused on the formidable ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-010
Budget: 08/09/01 - 08/08/03

This Phase II SBIR project will design and implement visual object recogniton modules based on Hidden Markov Models (HMM). HMM is a technique that has worked very well for speech recognition and genetic discovery. HMM's success with these problems can be attributed to its flexibility and ability to solve two problems at once, namely segmentatio...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-010
Budget: 04/18/00 - 10/18/00

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate and implement a low power motorless camera pan/tilt mechanism and control. The platform, as well as the image processing and control modules will be tailored for single chip and miniature cameras that can be readily interfaced with personal computers. A wide expanse of fi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-010
Budget: 04/13/00 - 10/12/00

Visual object recognition has been an active research topic for decades, but a robust solution to this difficult problem is yet to be identified. During this Phase I SBIR project, we propose to approach object recognition from a different point of view, by applying to it a technique that has worked very well for speech recognition, namely Hidde...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF97-104
Budget: 07/13/98 - 09/26/00

Contemporary computing platforms failt to deliver the computational efficiency required for real time image processing. Such computational power is essential for the realization of truly intelligent and autonomous behavior in today's weapons systems and computers. In contrast, the simplest of living systems are able to perceive and interpret t...
