  1. A Collaborative Interface for Teacher-Student Interaction in Virtual Environments

    SBC: STRANGE LOOP GAMES INC.            Topic: edIES17R0005

    In prior projects, including a 2015 ED/IES SBIR award, the team developed two immersive multiplayer virtual game environments. In Eco and Colony, middle school students collaboratively apply scientific practices within the virtual worlds to address challenges, such as the availability of resources and energy and maintaining clean water. With this Phase I funding, the team is developing a prototype ...

  6. Bioinformatics: Data Integration for Biomonitoring Applications

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: DTRA162002

    Aret Associates and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) propose an interdisciplinary effort to meet the challenges of developing a soil microbiome-based nuclear activity biomonitoring application. Our approach combines Arets expertise in decision theory and bioinformatics with ORNLs subject matter expertise in microbial ecology and contaminant signatures. We will adapt and extend our high featu ...

  7. Machine learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (SNM)

    SBC: Clostra, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    "Deep Learning for standoff detection of Special Nuclear Material (DLeN) applies the same deep learning techniques that allow computers to beat human performance in image recognition and the game of Go to detecting Special Nuclear Material. Spectral analysis and signal processing can in some cases be augmented by the use of much larger neural nets that conduct much deeper analysis of features of t ...

  8. Bioinformatics: Data Integration for Biomonitoring Applications

    SBC: Reference Genomics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162002

    To effectively counter Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) we must be able to accurately and sensitively detect the sites of WMD development. While the reagents and byproducts of nuclear activity may be rapidly depleted from environmental sites, those transient perturbations leave a lasting mark on the resident microbial communities by promoting and restricting the growth of different microorganisms ...
