  1. Small, Cheap, Smart, and Simple

    SBC: CORPORA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project develops an electronic mobility aid for individuals with low vision or blindness to prevent collision with overhanging obstacles not detected by standard methods such as the cane. This electronic mobility aid fulfills the criteria of (1) small size, (2) low cost, (3) low cognitive demands, and (4) hands-free operation. Phase I of the project focuses on novel algorithms to minimize cog ...

  2. OPEN

    SBC: One Planet Education Network (OPEN) LLC            Topic: N/A

    Virtual worlds are an emerging form of technology where users can take the form of an avatar and move around within a simulated environment. Such worlds may have potential in the field of education to provide students with new learning opportunities by affording participation in tasks that often would not be possible in the real world due to constraints and restrictions, such as cost, scheduling, ...

  3. Planet Energy First World

    SBC: One Planet Education Network (OPEN) LLC            Topic: N/A

    Planet First Energy Worlds will be a 3D virtual environment focused on energy-related topics that address mathematics and science standards for 6th grade. The curricula embedded within the intervention will focus on inquiry scenarios and will leverage disciplinary content to address different situations using a video game format immersed in 3-D technology. The games will take two days of class tim ...

  4. FabLab Construction Station: Engaging Teachers and Students in STEM

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The FabLab Construction Station will allow second grade teachers and students to design and fabricate 2D and 3D geometric shapes, bulletin boards, paper airplanes, pop-ups, and other materials. Student outcomes will include improved math and engineering knowledge in topics including shapes, geometry, pre-algebra, and measurement. Curricular materials for teachers will be designed to integrate ...

  5. A functional and multimodal biofeedback device to treat balance dysfunction in mTBI patients.

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD09H22

    According to existing data, there are more than 1.5 million of Americans sustaining a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each Year. Balance disorders represent one of the main regular problems that patients have to deal with, and thus everyday. Rehabilitation programs do exist but they are dependable of the clinician or physiotherapist and they do not take in account the multimodal aspects of balance co ...

  6. Thermoelectric-Powered Field Kitchen Appliances

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09162

    Cooking appliances in U.S. Army field kitchens are currently heated by burning JP-8 fuel using electrically powered burners. Power is supplied by a separate JP-8 fired generator that serves multiple appliances simultaneously. This is inefficient, as generators are only 20-25% efficient, and unreliable since failure of the generator results in the failure of the entire kitchen operation. This is a ...

  7. Plug & Play Integrated Hybrid Power System for Humanoid Robot

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A10125

    Robotic platforms, such as humanoid robots and unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) are significantly contributing to the capabilities of the U.S. Army. The BEAR humanoid robot offers exceptional capabilities for a robotic platform, but its mission duration is substantially constrained by the low volumetric energy density of rechargeable batteries. For maximum operational flexibility, the power sourc ...

  8. LITE Spectrometer for surface bound CBE Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT022

    A stand-off mid-IR based system offers great promise for the detection of chemical, biological or explosive (CBE) agents. Such a system has yet to be realized due mostly to broad spectral features and interfering substances. In this proposal we will demonstrate the feasibility of a system that collects laser induced thermal emission (LITE) from a substance and identifies it as known CBE agent with ...

  9. Vanadium Oxide Photonic Crystal Thermochromic Optical Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09079

    Agiltron proposes to use patterned metal-vanadium oxide layers as a fast, high contrast infrared optical switch. The desired effect, based upon extraordinary optical transmission, has been demonstrated for visible light and should have greater contrast in the infrared. The effect of grain size, thickness and composition (oxygen content) of VO2 on the phase transition temperature and width of hyste ...

  10. Non-rotating Wind Energy Generator

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A10111

    Agiltron, Inc. and Engineering & Scientific Innovations, Inc. propose a new non-rotating wind energy generator, based upon our extensive R&D experiences on aerodynamics, electromagnetic generators, and power management. The generator will have a total volume less than 9 cubic meters, total weight much less than 300kg, and generate more than 3kW at wind velocity of 10 m/s. The design is highly-mobi ...
