  5. Tracking and Assessing Learner Engagement Toolkit (TALENT)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: AF17AT009

    The U.S. Air Force trains and educates a large and diverse workforce to meet requirements across a complex array of missions. Early-stage training in many Air Force Specialty Codes can consist of large corpora of foundational, static material, so training that motivates airmen is a necessary element in helping ensure a supply of qualified personnel in mission-critical areas like aerospace maintena ...

  6. Learner Engagement and Motivation to Learn Assessment and Monitoring System

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: AF17AT009

    Training can now delivered on a large scale through platforms, but must be engaging to be effectively utilized. Key to providing training that makes a difference in the field is an understanding of how to induce high levels or engagement during learning, and the ability to objectively assess engagement in real-time so that interventions can be tailored during training to optimize engagement and m ...

  7. High-gain Low-excess-noise Linear-mode APD for Small-pitch Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171118

    To address the need for scalable, large-format ladar sensors, a robust, compact, ultra-low-noise avalanche photodiode (APD) technology will be developed. The high-gain low-excess-noise APD is based on a cascade of low-noise gain stages that promote determ

  8. Online Spectroscopic Chemical Diagnostics for Thermally Stressed Fuel Flows


    The limits of high-performance aircraft continue to be pushed, requiring more capacity from thermal management systems as hydraulic, mechanical, and pneumatic power systems are replaced with electrical components. Rejecting this heat to the fuel can lead to composition changes and the production of insolubles and surface deposits via pyrolysis and oxidation at elevated fuel temperatures, especiall ...

  9. Development lightmap rendering technology to advance infrared simulation capabilities for training applications

    SBC: Cornerstone Software Solutions, Inc            Topic: AF17AT012

    Recent technology advances have enabled the simulation community to achieve greater realism in virtual training environments. As new methods for synthetic image generation are developed, the lack of readily available supporting data to populate these specialized techniques limits their implementation. Currently the capability is not available to efficiently generate enhanced temporal energy maps ...
