  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. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Fast Rise-time High Power Radio Frequency (HPRF) Pulse Shaping

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N172135

    Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc. (EHT) is collaborating with researchers at the Pulsed Power and Power Electronics Center at Texas Tech University (TTU) to develop a high-power microwave switch that is capable of very fast rise times, adjustable pulse width, and high pulse repetition frequency (PRF). EHT has developed solid-state pulsed power systems that has the potential to improve the performanc ...

  8. Multi-sensor ASW Pod System (MAPS)

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N151058

    The Multi-sensor ASW Pod System (MAPS) effort will develop an integrated system for vertical takeoff unmanned aerial vehicle anti-submarine warfare operations. MAPS will be composed of a podded system capable of conducting acoustic search operations, utilizing standard A-size sonobuoys and bathythermobuoys, and localized Magnetic Anomaly Detector (MAD) final targeting operations, utilizing modern ...

  9. Metrology of Visibly Opaque, Infrared-Transparent Aerodynamic Domes, Conformal Windows, and Optical Corrector Elements

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N152105

    There is a growing need to fabricate visibly-opaque, infrared-transparent, high-optical-quality optics that conform to an aircrafts outer moldline shape to reduce drag.However, fabrication of such free-form and aspheric infrared (IR) optics has proven challenging.The current fabrication bottleneck is in the speed and precision of measuring the optical figure and transmitted wavefront error for the ...

  10. Metrology of Visibly Transparent Large Aspheric Optics

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N152106

    There is a growing need to fabricate high-optical-quality optics that conform to an aircrafts outer moldline shape to reduce drag.However, fabrication of such free-form and aspheric optics has proven challenging.The current fabrication bottleneck is in the speed and precision of performing metrology of the optical surfaces because traditional interferometric techniques are not applicable.To meet t ...
