  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. Photonic Switch for Laser Power Distribution

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: N171013

    A very fast 1xN optical switch capable of handling high-optical power is proposed. It is designed for switching laser power from a central source to multiple outputs using photonic switch technology that does not have any mechanical moving parts. It is designed to have a very compact size and high-reliability operation suitable for airborne environment. The switching speed will be >10 W of optical ...

  3. Lightweight Self-Start System for T56 Engine Driven Aircraft

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N171028

    The Navy needs a small, self-contained, lightweight system for starting E-2D T56 engines to allow for remote field operations. We propose to develop a Rocket Fuel Starter (RFS) to meet Navy needs. Our RFS uses a liquid-fuel rocket engine to drive a turbine that generates shaft power to start the T56 engine. We project our RFS will fit in available spaces and will weigh significantly less than 200 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Cyber Threat Insertion and Evaluation Technology for Navy Ship Control Systems

    SBC: Amida Technology Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N171054

    We will create a proof-of-concept evaluation environment where white-hat hackers can create and test known and suspected Trojan circuits, evaluate their behaviors and impacts, and assess the Trojan circuits against various countermeasures. The appliance will be able to replicate or emulate, in hardware, a Trojan and its trigger in the context of a predetermined design; to discover methods to exerc ...

  6. Fast Rise-time High Power Radio Frequency (HPRF) Pulse Shaping

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N172135

    Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc. (EHT) is collaborating with researchers at the Pulsed Power and Power Electronics Center at Texas Tech University (TTU) to develop a high-power microwave switch that is capable of very fast rise times, adjustable pulse width, and high pulse repetition frequency (PRF). EHT has developed solid-state pulsed power systems that has the potential to improve the performanc ...

  8. Warden- Cyber Threat Anomaly Detection for Combat Systems

    SBC: STAR LAB CORP.            Topic: N162115

    The DoD currently deploys combat systems that contain both known and unknown software vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities make it possible for hackers to execute cyber attacks that result in system corruption or disruption and diminish confidence in Americas critical warfighting capabilities.While efforts have been made to enhance security through improved software development practices and the ...

  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 ...
