  1. Epsilon-near-zero thermal emitter for combat identification

    SBC: Third Floor Materials, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM183004

    The USSOCOM is soliciting a thermal solution for combat identification (CID), which can be distributed to partner forces at low cost. Third Floor Materials (3FM) is proposing an innovative solution based on an emerging class of materials, epsilon-near-zero (ENZ) materials. The proposed approach will leverage the companys experience with these materials and proposes a solution with unique emissive ...

  2. Low Profile Night Vision Goggle Mounting Solution

    SBC: Swift Universal Optical Systems LLC            Topic: SOCOM191003

    The current method of stowing night vision goggles (NVG) on the helmet when not in use is a recognized source of acute and chronic neck injury.A mechanical solution that allows the NVG to be stowed in a position that reduces torque on the operators neck is required. Such a solution would reduce the users fatigue in operation as well as the likelihood of long-term chronic injury by moving the cente ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Developmentally Appropriate Technology for Science Assessment in Early Elementary Grades

    SBC: 3-C Institute for Social Development, Inc.            Topic: 99190018R0006

    In this project, researchers will develop a prototype of Science Quest, a tool to assess the science skills and understanding for students in grades 1 to 3. The prototype will deliver psychometrically validated assessment items in a game-like format. Educators will be able to assign and monitor completion of science assessments, view assessment results in real-time with reports at the individual a ...

  5. 3D Modeling Indoor Space

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM173002

    SOCOM seeks an innovative, computationally efficient, and automated process that uses high-resolution, still-frame images and/or Full Motion Video, collected from handheld devices, to generate 3D models of building interiors.The ability to use handheld inputs for 3D modeling, at its fundamental level, is a core interest for computer vision and photogrammetric engineering. Hence, the solution will ...

  6. Advanced Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    Group 2-3 UAS engines have low mean time between overhauls (MTBOs), often with as little as 200-400 hours before maintenance must be conducted.This leads to significant maintenance cost and logistics tail for deployed operations.Two-stroke piston and rotary engines for Group 2-3 platforms have common maintenance drivers such as carbon fouling, and wear of cylinders, housings and bearings.Phase I r ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Development of a sensor for detecting Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning toxins

    SBC: SeaTox Research Inc            Topic: 842

    Paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) due to consumption of contaminated shellfish is an increasing problem is the coastal waters of the United States, particularly in New England and the Pacific Ocean. The symptoms of PSP include vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, confusion, and loss of coordination in both marine animals and humans. In severe cases, PSP toxins can cause respiratory failure a ...

  9. Advanced Engine Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    UAV engines have a mean time between overhauls of about 400-500 hours, after which the engine is torn down for inspection. One of the primary findings during this overhaul is the presence of abundant carbon deposits in the engines and the combustion areas. There are a number of issues caused by carbon build up. When large carbon deposits are formed, they reduce the smooth air flow which can res ...

  10. Advanced Durability Coatings for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: UNITED PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) engine propulsion reliability is often dominated by failures associated with load bearing, sliding, or rotating components. These durability issues result in frequent overhauls, reducing system availability and increasing operating cost. Overcoming these is dramatically more difficult due to the operating conditions for military applications as well as the major empha ...
