PREEMPT Hospital Patient Monitor Clinical Study Successfully Concludes

The negative consequences of immobility during hospitalization are numerous, profound, and well-documented, including pressure ulcer formation, longer lengths of stay, muscle weakness, increased risk of falls, loss of independence, and reduced quality of life. Barron Associates’ wireless Patient/Resident Mobility Tracker (PREEMPT) provides an effective, accurate, noninvasive, and practicable method for automatically documenting patient mobility, providing […]

Barron Associates Work on System Identification Highlighted in Journal of Aircraft Special Edition

Barron Associates was invited to contribute to a special edition on Advances in Aircraft System Identification from Flight Test Data and the special edition is now available ( and has been widely publicized on LinkedIn ( Barron’s work, entitled Deterministic and Probabilistic Approaches to Model and Update Dynamic Systems, presents methods to update aircraft models […]

Barron Associates’ System to help Parkinson’s Patients Completes Feasibility Study

Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder that affects 1 million Americans and 10 million individuals worldwide. One of the most debilitating and impactful symptoms of PD is Freezing of Gait (FOG). FOG decreases quality of life and activity level, and leads to loss of independence and injurious falls. External prompts, such as auditory, […]

Barron Associates Receives NIH Phase II Award for Developing Remote Oxygen Adherence Monitor (ROAM) System

Barron Associates is developing the “Remote Oxygen Adherence Monitor” (ROAM) to reliably assess long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) adherence. LTOT is associated with significant reductions in hospitalizations and improved quality of life in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), but adherence remains a challenge in the majority of patients. The ROAM system uses innovative […]

Barron Associates Awarded SBIR Phase I by the Navy for Development of Artificial Intelligence for Shipboard Machinery Control Systems

Hull Mechanical & Electrical (HM&E) Machinery Control Systems (MCS) for U.S. Navy combatant craft are highly complex systems often with hundreds of actuators and thousands of sensors spread across dozens of shipboard subsystems.  As described in SBIR topic N231-028, Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML) applied to HM&E MCS offers the potential for improving robustness […]

Navy Phase I Awarded for “Automated Knowledge Base Extraction and Student Assessment”

Effective tools for evaluating the proficiency of warfighters at employing complex systems in an operational setting are essential to ensure operational capability within the Navy and other branches of the DoD. Generating exams with answer keys is a time-consuming process, made more difficult by the complexity of both the systems and the operational employment of […]

Paper Presented at AIAA Aviation Conference: Rapid Multi-Objective UAS Mission Planning for Operational Risk Management

Current aircraft operations within the National Airspace System (NAS) rely heavily on the presence of an on-board pilot to safely manage the flight. Integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the NAS requires a high confidence that these unmanned aircraft operations can meet or exceed the safety afforded through manned operations. Specifically, these UAS operations […]

NASA Phase I Selected for Award: Low-SWaP and Low-Cost Autonomous Landing Area Confirmation Scan (AutoLACS) Tool

The air transportation system is on the verge of drastic change.  Companies are envisioning Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) operations, providing “air-taxi” and cargo services.  AAM and other future operations will require new approaches to address long-standing issues that have, to date, been handled by well-trained pilots.  Among the most important is the ability to autonomously […]

Rodent Physiologic Analysis and Recording (RODAR) System Evaluation Concludes

The overall goal of this multi-year R&D program was to design, build, and evaluate the RODAR system. The RODAR system provides the capability to monitor multiple vertebrates simultaneously, with continuous recording, synchronization, and display of physiological and/or environmental data. Physiologic data are collected via miniature, lightweight Remote Physiologic Modules (RPMs) that are worn on the […]
