  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. Plan Recognition for Multi-Source Reasoning Over Sources and Events (PRIMROSE)

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: DTRA162004

    "SIFT will develop Plan Recognition for Multi-Source Reasoning Over Sources and Events (PRIMROSE) to provide high-performance, probabilistic plan recognition to DTRA, addressing the intelligence analysis problem of information overload. PRIMROSE will perform high-performance plan recognition and integrate the results into JIPOE-based intelligence processes. In PRIMROSE: (1) the YAPPR2 plan r ...

  3. ISHIS: Interface System for Human Interaction with Swarms

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: N162126

    SIFT will partner with Katia Sycara and Michael Lewis to develop an Interface System for Human Interaction with Swarms (ISHIS), including a prototype user interface and a simulation and testbed to enable adaptation and experimental validation of its performance in multiple contexts. Our focus will be on human status awareness and commanding abilities to enable behavior shaping and swarm managemen ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Circulator Technology for Full Integration at the Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) Level

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N171057

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will demonstrate a novel chip-scale magneto-acoustic spin wave (MASW) circulator for use in S-band applications. The MASW concept is based on the velocity non-reciprocity of surface acoustic waves in Aluminum doped Nickel-Zinc ferrite. The program will first simulate and demonstrate the necessary concepts in a simpler, but no less critical de ...

  9. Submarine Shipboard Power Unbalance Correction

    SBC: PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N171073

    The Navys submarine fleet uses 3 phase delta power per MIL-STD-1399/300B. The power distribution system operates most effectively when loading per phase is balanced within 3%. COTS data processing equipment used by the fleet typically needs single phase power, so balancing is achieved by manually assigning COTS items to power phases in a manner that equalizes phase loading. Assigning COTS items to ...

  10. Submarine Shipboard Power Supply Bridge

    SBC: PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N171075

    The Navys submarine fleet uses 3 phase delta power per MIL-STD-1399/300B. The power distribution system is driven from two power busses and automatically transfer loads between the busses when one loses power. During bus transfer, a 70 100 msec power interrupt may occur which can create upset in the loads. PDAs proposed rack mounted 40 kW Power Supply Bridge (PSB) is installed between the power d ...
