  4. 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 ...

  5. A Superior All Solid State Battery Based on Highly Conductive Solid Polymer Electrolyte

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N162092

    Conventional Li-ion batteries (LIBs) have significant safety problems due to the flammable organic solvent electrolytes. An all-solid-state lithium battery (ASSB) utilizing a solvent-free solid electrolyte (SE) can potentially address the above issues. Storagenergy Technologies Inc. (STI) proposes a superior ASSB based on a highly conductive solid polymer electrolyte (SPE). The goal of this Phase ...

  6. Cavitation Peening for Improved Ballistic Performance

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: N171037

    A need exists to improve the ballistic response of armor for Littoral Combat Ships. Simply increasing armor thickness is unacceptable because the associated increase in weight and space would reduce vessel performance speed and range. Surface treatment techniques for current armor materials such as steel, aluminum and ceramic may improve armor performance significantly without an associated weight ...

  7. Development of Explosive Feedstock for Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) 3D Printers

    SBC: E&G Associates, Inc.            Topic: N171060

    Traditional manufacturing methods for producing warheads, propellants, and pyrotechnic systems are timely and costly. Additive manufacturing (AM) approaches offer one path of alternative manufacturing technologies. Among various technologies, powder bed fusion (PBF) is one promising approach. Hewlett Packards Multi-Jet Fusion printers utilize a unique PBF process that presents a desirable solution ...
