25 Ultrasonic Assessment of Tooth Health Objective Dental health care and research workers require a means of imaging the internal structure of teeth in vivo detection of poor bonding or voids between restorative material and dentin detection of tooth decay in the early stage visualization of periodontal defects Conventional x-ray techniques have difficulty detecting cracks and visualizing interfaces between two hard media (due to silhouette image)

26 Office of Technology Transfer Panel Discussion: Concrete Structure Characterization and Ultrasonic Assessment of Tooth Health D.W. Blodgett Air Defense Systems Department Electro-Optics Group (A1F) Co-Inventors: Kevin C. Baldwin (A1F) Donald D. Duncan (A1F) George Vojtech (ST1) June 10, 2003

27 Develop non-destructive, portable sensing capabilities for reinforced concrete structures such as bridge pilings, bridge decks, support walls, docks, piers, etc… The final goal being to determine overall structural integrity and the presence (level) of re-bar delamination. Delamination may be caused by corrosion or any natural or man-made processes. Concrete Structure Characterization Objective

28 Operational Theory Generation Acoustic speaker excites resonant modes in embedded re-bar re-bar acts as “buried” source in concrete and re-radiates acoustic energy as speaker drive frequency approaches re-bar resonance, re-bar vibration amplitude increases and vibrations are carried to the surface of the concrete Detection Accelerometer/ laser vibrometer provides broadband detection of re-bar vibrations on concrete surface lock-in detection of vibrometer signal provides very high SNR requires no special surface preparation of concrete Location and amplitude of detected vibrations related to degree of disbond (corrosion) of re-bar Concrete Piling Audio speaker Accelerometer Re-bar Lock-in amplifier Audio Speaker Accelerometer Acoustic waves

29 Funding Milestones Originally funded under JHU/APL Transportation IR&D Program in 2000 Additional funding received under OTT Prototype Development Fund in 2001 Applied for but did not receive funding from Federal Highway Administration IDEA Program in 2002 Miscellaneous Milestones Invention disclosure submitted in 2000 Patent application filed in 2002 Finalist for OTT Invention of the Year in 2001 Presented work at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Nondestructive Evaluation (CNDE) Annual Meeting in 2002 Presented work at SPIE Smart Structures/NDE Conference in 2003 Licensed signed by the BiTH Group in 2003 Technology assessment performed by John Fraser (OTT consultant) in 2003 Concrete Structure Characterization Timeline

30 Ultrasonic Assessment of Tooth Health Dentin-Enamel Junction Characterization Al Section Cu Section Comparison of tooth phantom and sectioned tooth cross sections with corresponding measured ultrasonic waveforms tooth phantoms and tooth sections prepared to characterize the effects of the DEJ on one- dimensional acoustic wave propagation measured waveforms very similar indicating close match of acoustic reflectance (0.18 vs ) Wave propagation direction

31 Funding Milestones Original work performed “on the side” starting in 2000 Received funding under OTT Prototype Development Fund from 2001 to 2003 Received funding under Air Defense Systems Department Technology Development Fund in 2002 Miscellaneous Milestones Invention disclosure submitted in 2000 Finalist for OTT Invention of the Year in 2001 Presented work at SPIE BIOS from Technology assessment performed by Fran Meyer (OTT consultant) in 2001 Met with Gendex Dentsply in 2002 to explore technology transfer Ultrasonic Assessment of Tooth Health Timeline

32 Reinforcing Human Interaction Skills Through Simulations Tim Frey Program Manager Strategic Systems Department 10 June 2003

33 Potential Applications Recruiting Suicide intervention Courtroom testimony US Customs interview Informant management Parent-child discussions Rape-victim interview Forensic testimony Physician interviews Census interviews Employee coaching Employment interviews Sexual Harassment Sales, diversity Risk communication Cultural sensitivity Conflict resolution Bedside manners Courtroom ethics Spousal interactions Already built

34 Timeline Detection of Deception Trainer for FBI IR&D Funding OTT Funding Army Suicide Intervention, Marine Recruiting, US Customs Airport Interview Trainer Products developed US provisional patent app. filed Full patent app. filed in US, 11 foreign countries Divisional patent application filed Start-up company launched Attempts at multiple license deals began TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER

35 The Start-Up Company APL licensed technology start-up company (Simmersion, LLC) in Fall 2002 –Exclusive license –Cash + Equity deal APL currently subcontracting remainder of projects to Simmersion –Will direct all new business in this area to them

36 What does this mean for you? OTT has strong history of successful technology transfer to private industry –License deals and start-ups –Founded on intellectual capital of talented APL staff Your innovation could be marketable! –Explore options with OTT –Creative ways to stay involved with your technology after it’s been licensed

37 Value of Practice Training can be viewed as a three-level process “Practice” is often skipped or insufficient in human interaction training Classroom/Lecture “On-the-job” Simulation  Practice

38 How did we get into this? APL relationship with FBI already in place FBI has need to teach new agents detection of deception techniques APL built simulator (Mike Simmen) to help agents practice correct techniques Success in the field –Used by 74 Federal law enforcement agencies and thousands of state/local agencies –Over 20,000 copies in circulation US Army (Army Materiel Command) wanted technology applied to suicide intervention

39 Simulation Features Customized for sponsor Realistic interactions –Multiple responses for any given question –Selection of responses based on simulated brain –Memory –Opportunity to ask almost any question at any time Feedback –Specific –Immediate and overall

40 Simulation Features (cont.) Opportunity for hundreds of different interactions with variations of virtual person Reinforce the classroom “model” Opportunities to make mistakes… and learn from them Tool for trainer to evaluate student performance Help to internalize techniques learned
