  1. 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 ...

  2. CRISSP- Customizable Recyclable International Space Station Packaging

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: H1403

    The CRISSP Phase II effort will mature to TRL-6 recyclable launch packaging materials to enable sustainable in-space manufacturing on the ISS and future manned deep space missions. Our Phase I effort began by testing the recycling of current launch packaging materials, identifying several that are possible to recycle. We then prototyped concepts for sealable bags made with readily recyclable A.M ...

  3. A Multi-Wavelength Transceiver for In-Situ Validation of Airborne Remote Sensing Instruments

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S107

    The overall goal of this Phase II SBIR effort is to develop a three-wavelength, backscatter transceiver for in situ validation of ongoing High Spectral Resolution Lidar measurements. The key innovation in the effort is the use of a multi-element, non-linear waveguide for highly efficient, three wavelength generation in a collinear geometry ideally suited for use in the backscatter nephelometer at ...

  4. Precision Guided Parafoil System For Sounding Rocket Recovery

    SBC: STARA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: S304

    The primary goal of the proposed STARA innovation is to develop and demonstrate a high altitude precision guided parafoil system that will enable NASA to control the final landing point of the sounding rocket payload, thus reducing system offset, recovery time, and recovery cost. Current recovery methods utilize unguided parachutes, which are susceptible to large uncertainties in recovery location ...

  5. Instrument for Measurement of Oceanic Particle Size Distribution from Submicron to Mesoplankton

    SBC: SEQUOIA SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: S108

    Particle size distribution (PSD) is a fundamental environmental measurement, with diverse biogeochemical applications including carbon cycle science, ecosystem and fisheries modeling, and harmful algal bloom (HAB) detection/prediction. There is optimism that estimates of PSD will be available from ocean color measurements (such as NASA's upcoming PACE mission), and will be able to help constrain g ...

  6. Color-XHDR- A Compact High-Speed Color Extreme High Dynamic Range Video Capability for Rocket Engine Testing

    SBC: INNOVATIVE IMAGING & RESEARCH CORP            Topic: H1002

    Innovative Imaging and Research (I2R) proposes to develop a 21st Century high-speed, color extreme high dynamic range (Color-XHDR) video recording system that will produce calibrated, engineering-grade video to accurately document rocket motor firings, at close range within a test cell, without image saturation. This novel imaging system will include a compact, single camera/single focal plane ar ...

  7. Polarization Maintaining Ho-Doped Fiber Amplifier

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: S101

    The laser absorption spectrometer approach offers the potential to provide the high-accuracy carbon dioxide mixing ratio measurements with the vertical and horizontal spatial resolution that is desired by the carbon cycle research community. It is generally agreed that 2.05 micron wavelength absorption band of carbon dioxide can offer good differential absorption optical depth. An amplifier with o ...

  8. Lunar Spectral Irradiance Monitor

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: S103

    During this effort an instrument for calibrating the lunar irradiance will be designed. Such an instrument will lead to reliable exoatmospheric calibration for past, current, and future earth-viewing instruments and improve the accuracy of their data products, which in turn will improve climate change and weather models. The instrument will measure both the solar and lunar irradiances, which will ...

  9. Compact, Rugged and Low-Cost Atmospheric Ozone DIAL Transmitter

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: S101

    Real-time, high-frequency measurements of atmospheric ozone are becoming increasingly important to understand the impact of ozone towards climate change, to monitor and understand depletion of the ozone layer, to further understand its role in atmospheric chemistry, and to assess its impact on human health and the productivity of agricultural crops. Expansions of tropospheric ozone measurement eff ...

  10. Model-Based Off-Nominal State Isolation and Detection System for Autonomous Fault Management

    SBC: Okean Solutions, Inc            Topic: S505

    The proposed model-based Fault Management system addresses the need for cost-effective solutions that enable higher levels of onboard spacecraft autonomy to reliably maintain operational capabilities. The system will provide onboard off-nominal state detection and isolation capabilities that are key components to assessing spacecraft state awareness. The ability to autonomously isolate spacecraft ...
