Barron Associates Awarded NIH Grant to Develop Therapy Games for Children with Cerebral Palsy

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has awarded Barron Associates, Inc. a grant titled “Motivating Occupational Virtual Experiences In Therapy for kids (MOVE-IT).” The program will support intensive rehabilitation for pediatric hemiplegia through mixed-reality games that inspire high-dosage, task-directed upper extremity (UE) movements. The […]

Barron Associates Awarded Grant to Study Falls in Hospitals

Fall detection, assessment, and prevention is a challenging issue across the care continuum. Despite wide recognition as a considerable problem, fall-related injuries are still the most frequently reported adverse events in hospital inpatient settings. Diverse factors contribute to falls, including patient factors (e.g., cognitive state, muscle weakness, medications), environmental factors (e.g., bed/toilet positioning, trip hazards), […]

Spatial Link Analysis for Airborne Platforms

Under a Phase I Navy SBIR, Barron Associates, Inc., is developing the Spatial Link Analysis for Airborne Platforms (SLAAP) software tool, which will address the myriad facets of a complex electromagnetic modeling problem. This comprehensive RF propagation modeling tool will exploit three-dimensional antenna patterns, complete platform location and orientation specification, and high resolution terrain data […]

Barron Associates, Inc. awarded contract to develop advanced controls for spacecraft rendezvous

Barron Associates, Inc. has been awarded a Small Business Innovative Research Phase I contract to develop advanced controls for spacecraft rendezvous and proximity operations (RPO) and docking under a project titled, Hybrid Autonomy for Rendezvous and Proximity operations (HARP). The effort will develop computationally-efficient optimal solutions for autonomous spacecraft RPO, employing innovative methodologies including nonconvex […]

Barron Associates Receives Funding to Develop Continuous Blood Pressure Monitoring

Barron Associates’ Cardiovascular Hemodynamics Processing System (CHAMPS) is a reliable, easy-to-use, and comfortable (i.e., non-cuff-based) continuous (i.e., beat-to-beat) ambulatory BP monitor that can operate around the clock, even during activities of daily living (ADL). This new class of BP monitor will be an important addition to clinical practice, accurately and unobtrusively assessing individuals with established […]

Barron Associates Receives Grant to Develop Smart Sensors for Cystic Fibrosis Treatments

Barron Associates has received a grant from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute for the development of sensors that objectively monitor the duration and pattern of adherence to CF airway clearance and inhaled medication therapies. This Phase I SBIR research effort will provide accurate assessment of patient adherence to CF treatments as a tool […]

Hybrid Air/Water Vehicle Prototype Testing

Barron was awarded a Navy STTR contract to develop a hybrid vehicle that could operate both in air and underwater. The goal was to use air travel to rapidly reach a location and then dive underwater to engage submerged targets. Barron Associates designed and built AERODIVER, a collapsible heavy-lift quadcopter transport to carry a Remotely […]

Safe and Intelligent Surveying of Complex Environments with UAS Swarms

Barron Associates has been selected for award of an Air Force Phase I SBIR contract to develop the micro-Swarm Environmental Sensing (µSENS) technology to safely and efficiently gather high spatiotemporal resolution wind data to initialize diagnostic wind models. µSENS includes UAV platforms instrumented with meteorological sensors and swarm / path planning software to coordinate behaviors […]
