The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Graspable Math Activities

    SBC: GRASPABLE INC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through previous grant awards from IES, researchers developed Graspable Math, a tablet-based intervention where middle and high school students create and manipulate complex expressions for basic operations as well as equations and equations systems and inequalities. In this project, the team will develop a prototype of Graspable Math Activities, an app with novel kinds of algebra practice and ass ...

  2. Island-mode Enhancement Strategies and Methodologies for Defense Critical Infrastructure

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: DTRA152006

    An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack could cause widespread outage of the commercial electric power system that could last for weeks to months. Microgrids for defense critical infrastructure (DCI) should thus be equipped to operate in islanded mode for extended periods of time using only local fuel storage and renewable energy sources. The primary difference between operating a microgrid in islan ...

  3. Fully Metallic Self-Fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials Using Composites and Alloys Comprised of Aluminum, Lithium, and Magnesium

    SBC: Adranos Energetics LLC            Topic: DTRA16A002

    While aluminum casing materials provide some enhanced performance and thermal loading to explosive ordinance, their overall effectiveness is highly limited by incomplete combustion and long residence times. In order to reduce these problems, the casing material must be designed to facilitate rapid fragmentation through either specialized casing geometries or greatly refined initial particle sizes. ...

  4. HomePortal – A Universal Home Environment for Individuals who are Blind or Have Visual Impairments.

    SBC: CREATEABILITY CONCEPTS, INC.            Topic: 84133S1

    Ironically people who are blind or have visual impairments that should benefit the most from technology, have great difficulty in interacting with modern home appliances and electronics. This is primarily due to a combination of a lack of accessible features, device complexity, or the lack of a centralized strategy. Current strategies do not incorporate reminders, the possible fixed income status ...

  8. Full Scale Anemometer

    SBC: SKY SIGHT TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: G

    "The ability to determine air pollutant emission quantity and emission rate are extremely important for environmental protection, policy making, and law enforcement. A pollutant emission rate can be determined by calculating the product of the airflow rate from an exhaust fan and the composition of the pollutant in the air. The pollutant may be any number of things, including particulate matters ...

  10. Variable Position Mid-Wheel Drive System for Power Wheelchairs

    SBC: Criterion Health, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project designs, constructs, and evaluates a concept model based on current mid wheel designs. The concept model uses a variable position drive wheel system that can move forward or backward from the mid-wheel position using a simple mechanical system to change the position of the drive wheels. A series of five structured tests for maneuverability and/or stability are used to compare performa ...
