  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 ...

  2. Advanced Fast Shutter for Debris Mitigation

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143007

    In an effort to development more robust optical system coatings DTRA, in collaboration with Sandia National Labs, is working to characterize the degradation of optical materials for space systems when exposed to high intensely EUV/ cold x-rays. The experiments utilizes the Double Eagle z-pinch facility which generates high current, high voltage arc pinch plasma to produce an intense EUV and cold x ...

  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 ...

  4. High Performance Actuators for Solid Propulsion Control Systems

    SBC: Electric Drivetrain Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA16010

    The US Missile Defense Agency is seeking to develop innovative architectures and/or high temperature electronics for increasing the temperature capability of actuators used with proportionally controlled valves/thrusters. Solid propellant exhaust gases are commonly 2,000-4,000F while the actuator to valve/thruster interface commonly must be limited to less than 200-300F. This relatively low temp ...

  5. Improved powder characteristics and manufacturing processes of thermal batteries

    SBC: Binergy Scientific Inc.            Topic: MDA16T001

    We are proposing characterization and development of binder/separator and Cobolt Disulfide (CoS2) cathode for thermal batteries. The proposed solution addresses significant market segment, and supports projected markets growth. Along with our development in Phase I and Phase II, we will aim for fully functional prototypes and field tries, and market of our technology to DoD agencies. Approved for ...

  6. Interactive Administrator Dashboard for Improving School-Wide Behavior Supports

    SBC: Liveschool Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    In prior research and development, the project team developed LiveSchool, an online platform to track student behavior. With this Phase I funding, the team will develop and test a prototype of an administrator dashboard. The dashboard will generate reports on individual student behavior patterns across classes and on the prevalence of behavioral issues across different teachers. The dashboard will ...

  7. Lithium Oxyhalide Battery Separator Material

    SBC: eSpin Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA15027

    eSpin Technologies will design the scale up machine to produce novel high performance separator for lithium primary batteries. The process will be developed to produce novel separator and a variants which has the potential of a significantly higher volumetric efficiency for electrolyte storage capacity and kinetics to distribute electrolyte flow within nanoporous channel efficiently. This new sep ...

  8. Lithography Cost Reduction for Rad Hard Integrated Circuits

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA143008

    The DoD faces mounting costs for integrated circuits built with advanced technology. Our proposal addresses mixed-signal ASIC design costs and fabrication costs, notably photomask costs and photolithography costs. The ADONIS 1D design methodology has been demonstrated at technologies ranging from 130nm to 16nm. In Phase I of the program, we used ADONIS to design a reference circuit a high-speed c ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Novel nanostructure anode and cathode for new class of high energy and power thermal batteries

    SBC: Binergy Scientific Inc.            Topic: MDA15021

    Thermal batteries are single discharge reserve batteries that provide very long shelf life, minimal self-discharge, wide storage temperature range, fast thermal activation under power demand, and wide range of operating and storage temperature conditions. We are proposing development and optimization of novel anode and cathode materials and demonstration of advanced thermal batteries (TB) that sig ...
