  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 ...

  3. AlphaBear2

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    This project team will fully develop and test AlphaBear 2, a vocabulary learning game for grade 4 to 7 students. Vocabulary is a prerequisite for academic success, as it is linked to stronger performance across academic subjects and improved reading comprehension. It is more difficult for students to participate in educational activities without understanding the key vocabulary associated with tha ...

  7. Final qualification testing for myoelectric implant to control prostheses

    SBC: RIPPLE, LLC            Topic: SB142006

    The goal of this DARPA Phase II SBIR program is to evaluate an implantable system for recording myoelectric signals from residual muscles of individuals with forearm amputations. The signals will be wirelessly coupled to an external receiver for controlling prostheses. Compared to surface electrodes, this system will provide: more channels for prosthesis control from a larger number of muscles in ...

  10. GHz, Octavespanning Photodetectors for MWIR/LWIR

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: SB153002

    Exploitation of new chip-scale optical frequency comb sources demands improvements in MWIR/LWIR detector performance, including: High speed (5 GHz); high sensitivity (NEP < 1pW/Hz1/2); broad spectral response (Octave); and thermo-electric cooler (TEC) operating temperature. No existing detector meets these demanding performance parameters. Phase I successfully designed and demonstrated an octave s ...
