  1. The First Intelligent Wearable Device to Enhance Student Attention Through Personalized Self-Monitoring and Reinforcement

    SBC: FokusLabs Behavioral Solutions, Inc.            Topic: edIES17R0005

    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of a hardware and web-based social and behavioral intervention to improve self-regulation (SR) of students in grades 3 to 5. The prototype will include a wearable wristband that gently vibrates from time to time during the school day to prompt students to indicate their level of SR (e.g. level of focus, attention, self-c ...

  6. Industrial Crystallization Facility for Nonlinear Optical Materials

    SBC: Made In Space, Inc.            Topic: H801

    Made In Space, Inc. (MIS) proposes the development of an Industrial Crystal Facility (ICF) for microgravity product manufacturing and applied research. The ICF is focused on advanced materials engineering, rather than biomedical research, and serves a complimentary role to existing NASA-developed hardware, expanding utilization of ISS. Intended applications include nonlinear optical single crystal ...

  7. Microwave Photonic Imaging Radiometer

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: S103

    Passive Microwave Remote Sensing is currently utilized by NASA, NOAA, and USGIS to conduct Earth Science missions, including weather forecasting, early warning systems, and climate studies. Due to budgetary constraints and lack of reliable access to medium-lift vehicles, the current trend in the space industry is towards smaller, cheaper, and more frequent missions. Nano-satellites, such as Cube ...

  9. Structural-Health Aware Failure-Tolerant Engineered to Respond (SAFER) Additively Manufactured Systems

    SBC: Made In Space, Inc.            Topic: T1201

    Structural degradation and failure can cause malfunctions and long-term problems aboard spacecraft, jeopardizing the crew, especially in deep space missions. On Off-world habitats, this can lead to extensive maintenance procedures and dangerous EVAs to fix malfunctions. Micrometeorite impact and shielding breaches can have lasting impacts that pose a significant hazard to the longevity of mission ...

  10. Design and Process Development of Thin-Ply Composites

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: T1203

    This project evaluates automated tape placement (ATP) processing of thin ply composites, including process and design modeling, test panel fabrication and mechanical performance evaluation. Key to successful transition of standard ply to thin ply ATP processing is the ability to fabricate uniform high fiber volume and fiber distribution composite parts with below 1% void content. Our ATP robotic s ...
