  1. 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. High Bandwidth Hexapod for Hypersonic Flight Simulation

    SBC: Dynamic Structures And Materials, LLC            Topic: AF161224

    Hypersonic flight environments can include motion with high frequency spectral content that is difficult to simulate.This high frequency vibration may adversely affect the accuracy of guidance and control sensors, so it is very important to the Air Force Research Laboratory to be able to recreate the motion in a way that allows sensor performance to be evaluated.Motion platforms such as the KHILS ...

  8. High Performance MWIR/LWIR LED Wafers on Si Substrates for Scene Projectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: AF16AT22

    The state-of-the-art in infrared scene projection uses micro-machined resistor arrays. These arrays have limited frame-rate, dynamic range, and can be cost prohibitive as the array size increases. Alternative technologies are required. The most promising is infrared light emitting diodes (IR LED) based on InAs/GaSb type-II superlattices (T2SL) or W-Quantum Wells, with the ability to tune the bandg ...

  9. Human View (HumV)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF161049

    There is a need to develop a sufficient-fidelity simulation tool to create multi-sensor datasets for human activity detection and recognition. To address this critical need, Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI), Infoscitex Corporation (IST), Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), and Raytheon IDS propose a novel, integrated, high-fidelity simulation tool: HumanView (HumV) of human signatures. The p ...
