  1. MathMonsterMystery

    SBC: Triad Interactive Media, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Classroom teachers need formative assessment tools that give them easy and accurate information on student perfomance. Large scale assessments provide accountability data useful in evaluating progress across states and within school districts, but are not designed to directly impact classroom practice. Research shows us that student performance on standardized test can be impacted by test anxiet ...

  2. Snapshot Raman Spectral Imager

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: A09AT009

    Applied Quantum Technologies along with its university partner Duke University propose a coded-aperture, multi-aperture snapshot Raman imager. By combining an innovative optical design and advanced compressed sensing algorithms, a snapshot system provides dwell times much shorter than conventional slit-based or tunable-filter based spectral imagers. A short-wave infrared excitation source allows f ...

  4. Graph-Matching Accelerator (GMA)

    SBC: EXOGI LLC            Topic: SB082024

    We propose to explore the applicability of COTS general-purpose graphics processing units (GPGPU) to approximate graph matching problems, in order to dramatically improve the speed and utility of DoD-relevant processing areas such as machine vision, target recognition and social network analysis.

  5. Energy Rejection System for Very High Altitude Aircraft

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB082063

    High efficiency engines that reject waste heat to the atmosphere are needed for high altitude (85,000-100,000 ft), low speed aircraft that are envisioned for DoD applications. Often, a heat exchanger is required to reject the waste heat. The challenges of heat rejection are associated with the fact that because the density of the high altitude air is low and the velocity of the aircraft is low (t ...

  6. Electrically-Pumped III-Nitride Intersubband lasers

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB082049

    Kyma Technologies together with the two subcontractors at Princeton University and Lehigh University aim to develop III-Nitride QCL at near 1.55 µm based on native GaN substrates and strain-compensation heterostructures engineering. We intent to employ new approaches, aiming to overcome the challenges in realization intersubband emission in III-Nitride structures. High quality native GaN substrat ...

  7. HVPE-grown InGaN Materials for Aggressive Cost Reduction of Solid State Lighting Technologies

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB082053

    Kyma Technologies will develop InGaN growth technologies using the hydride vapor phase epitaxy (HVPE) process, and will combine this with a proven GaN epitaxial growth technology to enable aggressive cost reduction for InGaN-based devices. This approach will enable a reduction in the required MOCVD growth steps in the fabrication of LEDs for solid state lighting, leading to a significant reductio ...

  8. Ink Jet Printing of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Thin Film Integrated Circuits

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: SB082014

    The goal of the proposed work is to evaluate the viability of printing integrated circuits using Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (SWNTs) as the base material. Commercially, the impact of advanced printing electronics technology is significant. These technologies have the potential to reduce manufacturing costs and ultimately lead to an industry- wide improvement in manufacturing time efficiency. ...

  9. Preparing New Internet Reading Courseware: READY 2000

    SBC: Interactive Knowledge, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available We propose a comprehensive program to develop a mathematical characterization of clutter environments in SAR imagery. In contrast to conventional characterizations of SAR clutter, which use simple statistical models for targets and background to predict the receiver operation characteristics of front-end detectors (e.g., CFAR algorithms), we develop a more general notion of clutter ...

  10. Interactive Multimedia Math Instruction for Elementary School Children with Hearing Impairments

    SBC: Technology International Incorporated of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Structural responses to gust and buffet load excitation encompass a wide range of frequency spectrum. Any load alleviation system must be able to function well beyond this range to provide necessary damping to suppress vibrations. The proposed load alleviation system has the following unique qualities: 1. It uses aerodynamic damping property to suppress the structural responses, 2. ...
