  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Optically Based Small Arms Force-On-Force Training System

    SBC: INTER COASTAL ELECTRONICS INC            Topic: N162080

    This SBIR proposes the development of algorithms, methods and devices used to adjudicate small-arms force-on-force training, with emphasis on proper marksmanship and the appropriate use of cover and concealment. We envision a solution with two components: a tiny camera unit for attitude and heading attached to the weapon rail or below the barrel, and a radio/computer that houses all other electron ...

  4. Gravity-assisted Inertial Phase Separator (GIPS)

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: N162127

    Paragon proposes the Gravity-assisted Inertial Phase Separation (GIPS) concept to meet the Navys need for a robust phase separation technology that operates in the dynamic motion environment of a sea going vessel. This compact concept uses an actively driven two-stage approach to separate liquid out of a mixed phase inlet without introducing any additional pressure drop nor complicated supporting ...

  5. Additive Manufacturing Technology for Sonobuoy Applications

    SBC: Hydronalix, Inc.            Topic: N171010

    Hydronalix, a world leader in maritime robotic rescue systems will team with the Materials Department Rapid Prototyping Center at Oklahoma State University to perform this program. The Phase I program will focus on the study to identify, develop, and qualify use of rapid prototyping 3D Printing technologies for reducing the cost to manufacture Navy sonobuoys by at least 10% but most likely a much ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Modular Multi-Platform Rotor Hub Fatigue Test Rig

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N171016

    Rotor system components must be tested prior to flight certification to assess fatigue life. Developing custom test rigs for each different rotor hub due to their varying sizes and numbers of blades is the most costly approach. Safe, Inc. (Safe) has proposed a single test rig design with modular elements that can be reconfigured to address any rotor assembly or component. Hydraulic actuators can b ...

  8. Aircrew-Mounted Self-Adjusting Tether System

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N171026

    The manually-adjusted tethers currently used as the primary restraints for non-seated crew members on rotary wing platforms have several deficiencies, including: the need for manual slack monitoring and adjustment; hindrance of movement due to nuisance locking; annoyance loads on the occupant; and, inconvenient or unrealistic access to the airframe-mounted control points of the systems. The propos ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
