Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-02-71
Budget: 09/01/06 - 08/31/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): For those with high-level physical disabilities, communication, a very fundamental and essential need, is challenging. For many it can even be frightening if they have no way to express their most basic personal and medical requirements. For those with Locked-in -Syndrome (LIS) and those in the advanced stage...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-02-71
Budget: 03/01/06 - 02/28/07

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bioptic telescopes are the most successful and effective visual aid for distance vision. This proposed project will demonstrate a new approach to designing bioptic low vision telescopes. By using mirrors to fold the optical path into the eyeglass lens, all the elements necessary to provide magnification can ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: RFA-EY-02-02
Budget: 05/01/03 - 12/31/04

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of the program proposed here is to create a head mounted binocular electronic magnifier which will be highly effective, attractive, lightweight, and which will offer minimal interference with the user's other activities. MicroOptical has developed binocular viewers with up to 16 degrees field of view...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 09/01/02 - 08/31/06

DESCRIPTION (From the Applicant's Abstract): This phase 2 SBIR application proposes to continue development of an electronic video-based low vision enhancement system that promises to improve on earlier versions of this technology by making the system smaller, lighter, and more cosmetically accepta...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB002-043
Budget: 01/16/01 - 09/10/01

The use of optical rather than electronic switches can help resolve bottlenecks in fiber-optic data networks. MicroElectroMechanical (MEMS) components offer an opportunity to reduce the size and cost of these switches. However, assembly, optical performance, and packaging considerations can still limit the price/performance point of the switches...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic:
Budget: 02/04/00 - 11/15/00

The objective of the proposed work is the creation of an aid for the visually impaired, based on the use of an electronic camera, computer and electronic display. The unique and innovative aspect of this engineering development program is the integration of the display and viewing optics in ordinary spectacle frames and lenses. Our hypothesis i...
