  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. Disability data management for state and local planning.

    SBC: Integrated Research And            Topic: N/A

    Disability is the nation's largest public health issue; with over 35 million Americans experiencing disability and annual disability-related costs exceeding $170 billion. Planning for the efficient and equitable allocations of state and local rehabilitation services has generally been inadequate, however. Geographic information systems (GIS) approaches have the potential to dramatically improve ...

  5. EMP AND HPM SUPPRESSION TECHNIQUES

    SBC: Integrated Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Survival of present day microelectronic circuits depends on their protection from self generated and external electromagnetic interference. This proposal is oriented toward the class of interference generally referred to as overvoltage transients. Means for mitigating these transients include gas discharge tubes, and various solid state devices. Each of these has their own advantages in particu ...

  6. Gaining Access to the Outdoors: A Wheel Camber Adjustment Mechanism for Use in Nonmotorized, All-Terrain Vehicles.

    SBC: Mobility Engineering            Topic: N/A

    Wheelchair users are severely restricted from participation in outdoor activities due to the inability to traverse rough and sloped terrain. A novel wheel camber adjustment mechanism for hand powered, all-terrain, wheeled vehicles will be designed and evaluated. This system addresses the central technical issue in achieving high stability in such vehicles. The wheel camber adjustment system all ...

  7. 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 ...

  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 Munition Technologies to Attack and Defeat Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

    SBC: Hyperion Technology Group, Inc.            Topic: DTRA143004

    Traditional weapon systems often fail to meet the requirements of close combat typical of the previously discussed engagement, where insurgents often blend in or store weapon amongst friendly or non-combatant forces, to shield them from precision strike munitions of a technologically superior force. This type of warfare has led to an increased focus on the use of less-lethal weapons, to reduce let ...
