  1. Speaking and Listening Learning System

    SBC: Language Learning Partners LLC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In this project, researchers will develop a prototype of a web-based tool through which English Learners (EL) can practice conversation with an automated avatar. The Speaking and Listening Learning System will provide support, feedback, and will adapt to the conversational level of students. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study with 20 EL students in grades 1 and 2, the researchers will examine ...

  2. Graspable Math Activities

    SBC: GRASPABLE INC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through previous grant awards from IES, researchers developed Graspable Math, a tablet-based intervention where middle and high school students create and manipulate complex expressions for basic operations as well as equations and equations systems and inequalities. In this project, the team will develop a prototype of Graspable Math Activities, an app with novel kinds of algebra practice and ass ...

  3. A Robust Biofilm-Biomat Reactor for Conversion of Mission-Relevant Feedstocks to Products

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: T7

    Sustainable Bioproducts (SB) proposes to develop an encapsulated biofilm-biomat reactor that will efficiently convert mission relevant feedstocks to usable products under zero gravity conditions. The bioreactor will be based on SB’s proprietary fermentation platform for converting a wide variety of waste streams into a multitude of usable products. SB’s bioreactor platform is simple, d ...

  4. Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing of a deep throttling methane injector.

    SBC: T G V Rockets Inc            Topic: T9

    Design and manufacture of a Liquid fuel injector optimized for Ultrasonic Additive Manufacturing. UAM delivers aerospace parts today at 97% of bulk material property and foil laydown rates at speeds significantly better then powder or filament process. UAM has traditionally been applied to 2-D planar surfaces. We will extend UAM into complex geometries and constructs suitable for rocket engine inj ...

  5. Integrated Adaptive Route Capability

    SBC: CGH TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A3

    This SBIR provides advanced, automated mechanisms for ANSPs and the flight operators to enrich and interact with IFR Preferred Routes in the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS). The FAA’s Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) Preferred Route Program was developed to allow air traffic facilities to identify select routes for use into and out of busy airports and airspace.  We apply automation to ...

  6. ARCSTONE Improvements

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S1

    This SBIR Phase I effort will be devoted to exploring possible improvements for the NASA ARCSTONE instrument. One possible improvement will be to utilize total internal reflection optics for the fore-optics of the system. Possible benefits include reduced polarization and smaller size. A second possible improvement will be to use an optical design that requires only one focal plane array for the e ...

  7. Low-Cost Mixed-Phase Cloud Characterization Sensor Suite

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S1

    Radiative transfer properties of clouds play an important role in the energy balance of the Earth.  Numerous NASA programs and experiments are directed to measuring these effects.  In-situ measurements are critical for supporting satellite-borne instruments.  While research aircraft carry the best in-situ instruments, the aircraft and instruments are too expensive to provide suffici ...

  9. Frequency Agile Seed Laser for Orbital Doppler-Shift Compensation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S1

    The overall goal of the SBIR effort is to develop a frequency-agile, stand-alone, space-hardened diode-based seed laser with options for locking and frequency agility to compensate for doppler shift during orbit. This US-manufactured platform will be applicable for seeding next generation Nd:YAG lasers currently being developed for high-priority-designated aerosol missions (single- and multi-chann ...

  10. Ceramic-Metal Interfaces by Functional Grading

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: A107

    Glacigen Materials proposes a novel technique for producing large-area sheets of functionally graded materials (FGM), which yield robust ceramic-metal interfaces capable of withstanding harsh environments that include high temperatures. Propulsion systems offer some of the harshest possible design conditions from a materials perspective and the demands placed on engineering materials will become m ...
