  1. XpressRules-PM: Commercial Implementation of PM/NGAC

    SBC: XpressRules LLC            Topic: NA

    New Generation Access Control (NGAC)—because of its “neutrality by design”—represents the most effective and scalable approach for deploying “smart” access control and consent solutions in large dynamic scenarios. NGAC however presents with its own problems: (1) it has miniscule recognition and uptake in the workplace, (2) it is unusable by non-technical policy officers and (3) its doc ...

  2. A Blubber- or Dorsal Fin-Piercing Tag Attachment System for Remotely-Deployed Cetacean Tags

    SBC: American Benchmark Machine Works            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Animal-borne electronic instruments (tags) are critical tools for monitoring the behavior and ecology of cetaceans, providing data needed for managing their populations and mitigating the threats they face. Although remote-deployment of tags onto cetaceans that cannot be captured has provided valuable data, attachment durations have been frustratingly short and variable. Our Ph ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. XpressRules-PM: Commercial Implementation of PM/NGAC

    SBC: XpressRules LLC            Topic: NA

    This proposal represents a collaborative response by XpressRules and NIST to a two-fold demand from the information security marketplace. The business requirement (for true policy governance) is that asset owners and steward themselves-and not IT—become directly accountable for the life cycles of their rules and policies. The technical requirement (for an adequate data model) is that the policie ...

  6. Absolute Distance Interferometer for Manufacturing Metrology Applications

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Bridger Photonics, Inc. proposes to develop an absolute length metrology sensor that will simultaneously provide >1,000 measurements per second, 0.5 m maximum measurement distance. Bridger’s solution is will fill a gap in precision measurement technology for applications that require rapid monitoring of macroscopic distances such as positioning and calibration of surface metrology systems (CMM, ...

  7. Monitoring Active Region Development on the Far Side of the Sun

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 841

    Magnetic regions in the Sun’s outer atmosphere exert major impacts on space weather in the near-Earth environment. Near-term impacts at Earth are predominantly due to magnetic regions in the Sun’s near hemisphere; however, because the Sun rotates, mag- netic regions in the far hemisphere cross into the near hemisphere with little warning—except for our ability to monitor the Sun’s far hemi ...

  8. AlphaBear

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the team developed AlphaBear, a mobile gaming app where students are challenged to spell words which are then used to create humorous sentences. This project will develop and test a prototype for use specifically by English Learners. The prototype will formatively assess students' vocabulary, adjust gameplay to the skill levels of individual students, and provide ...

  9. Absolute Distance Interferometer for Manufacturing Metrology Applications

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: 90101

    Bridger Photonics, Inc. will develop an absolute length metrology sensor that will simultaneously provide >1,000 measurements per second, 0.5 m maximum measurement distance. Bridger’s solution is will fill a gap in precision measurement technology for applications that require rapid monitoring of macroscopic distances such as positioning and calibration of surface metrology systems (CMM, AFM, SE ...

  10. Pre-concentrator for Capture of Trace Fluorocarbons

    SBC: XPLOSAFE, LLC            Topic: 90108

    While fluorocarbons are released in relatively small amounts, they can have half-lives in the atmosphere as long as 50,000 years. However, they have extremely high global warming potential relative to other greenhouse gases, so that even small atmospheric concentrations can have large effect on global temperatures. For this reason, monitoring atmospheric concentrations of these compounds, identify ...
