  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 ...

  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. Computerized Psychological Techniques to Teach Knowledge and Increase Skill Levels Quickly

    SBC: La Valle, John J            Topic: N171066

    OBJECTIVE: Result in immediate mental/physical state of a sailor to attend to readiness to engage arms from any other state of un-readiness. In essence, to increase sailor learning speed, comprehension, and performance. This is done through human behavior/development techniques.DESCRIPTION: While resting or engaging in recreational activities, etc. there is always the chance of having to be in the ...

  9. Novel Composite for High Performance Thermal Interface Material

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N171081

    Navy operational needs dictate that thermal interface materials (TIMs) have high thermal conductance, high dielectric strength, form non-permanent bonds, and be resilient to vibration and abrasion. Available TIMs each satisfy a portion of these requirements, but not all of them.Glacigen Materials will develop a new class of TIM by creating a novel composite material. This material will be embodied ...

  10. Pilot Centric Motion Cueing Framework for Rotorcraft Shipboard Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N172109

    The effectiveness of rotorcraft flight simulation in handling qualities assessment and pilot training is enhanced by the presence of high-fidelity motion and body force cues, which can be particularly important for simulation of shipboard launch/recovery operations. Continuum Dynamics, Inc. (CDI) proposes to develop a model-based pilot-centric framework for the development and analysis of rotorcra ...
