Individualized Fatigue Meter for Space Exploration

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Daniel J. Mollicone, Ph.D., Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,993.00
Abstract:
To ensure mission success, astronauts must maintain a high level of performance even when work-rest schedules result in chronic sleep restriction and circadian misalignment, both of which contribute to fatigue and performance deficits unless effective countermeasures are used. We are proposing to… More

Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOT
Principal Investigator: Daniel J. Mollicone, President
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations.  This project… More

PVT Handheld App to Provide Warfighters with Immediate Feedback About Their Readiness to Perform

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Daniel Mollicone, President
Award Amount: $99,000.00
Abstract:
This project will achieve a handheld app to deliver the brief, 3-minute Psychomotor Vigilance Test (PVT) to provide immediate objective feedback to warfighters (and commanding officers) about their ability to sustain attention to mission critical tasks (e.g., route clearance, IED detection). It will… More
