  1. Mission US: TimeSnap

    SBC: ELECTRIC FUNSTUFF INC            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test Mission US TimeSnap, a game integrated within a Virtual Reality (VR) headset. This VR environment will provide an immersive exploration and analysis of events in U.S. history. In the most recent National Assessment of Educational Progress, only 17% of grade 8 students performed at or above the proficient level in U.S. history. The discipline o ...

  2. Teacher Dashboard 2.0 for Learning Creative Computer Programming

    SBC: Vidcode Inc.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In previous research and development, the developers created VidCode, a platform for students in grades 4 to 12 to learn computer science skills by using digital media assets (e.g., photos, audio, graphics) to create special effects in videos while learning about the code responsible for the action. In this project, the developers will create a prototype dashboard to provide teachers tools to mana ...

  3. Modernizing the Reading Roots Intervention

    SBC: SIRIUS THINKING LTD            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In previous research and development, researchers developed the Reading Roots, a non-technology delivered intervention for grade school that alternates teacher- delivered instruction with activities where children practice content and skills while working with a peer partner. In this project, the team will create a prototype of a technology-delivered version of Reading Roots, by integrating multim ...

  4. A More Perfect Union

    SBC: GIGANTIC MECHANIC LLC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In this project, the developers will create a prototype of a More Perfect Union, a role-playing game for high school civics and history. The technology-facilitated intervention will provide a library of simulations on a range of topics and historical moments inspired by the AP U.S. History Curriculum and the Common Core History Standards. In the game students will be cast in the roles of leading p ...

  5. Memory Instrumentation and Performance Simulation (MIPS)

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172003

    Next-generation high-performance computing (HPC) hardware, such as the Intel Xeon Phi Knights Landing Many-Integrated-Core processor, provide new deep memory architectures that offer the promise of increased performance. The challenge in taking full advantage of this architecture is selecting which data structures will be placed in the high-bandwidth memory. Optimizing data structure placement in ...

  6. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing of All Solid-State Batteries with Novel Electrode Architectures

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172005

    Supercapacitors have attracted considerable recent attentions due to their high-power density, and long cycle life. Unfortunately, the energy density of supercapacitors is too low to meet these applications requiring an energy supply for longer periods (hours or days). Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a superior all solid-state battery (ASSB) fabricated by additive manufacturing ...

  8. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  9. Novel Methods to Measure Penetrator Dynamics in Multi-Layer Geometries

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07011

    In Phase I of this effort we analyzed the structural response of a BLU 109 during typical penetration events. Based on these finite element results, we proposed and demsonstrated a simple robust concept for a passive penetrator sensor that identifies the material being penetrated and also correlates strongly with its underground trajectory. Such a sensor would obviously provide valuable informatio ...

  10. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (
