  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Plasmonic Metamaterial Approach to Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: Truventic LLC            Topic: AF17AT022

    Truventic proposes a novel MEMS-based plasmonic infrared scene projector to support hardware-in-the-loop testing of missile seekers, forward looking IR cameras (FLIR), counter measure simulation and tracking systems. The approach avoids known limitations of resistive arrays and provides high dynamic range, unprecedented high apparent temperature, high modulation rates, high pixel to pixel contrast ...

  4. Plasmonic Metamaterial Approach to Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: AF17AT022

    As both the response speed and sensitivity of thermal imagers have improved significantly over recent years, new IRSP systems are needed to provide greater dynamic range and faster response speeds. Addressing these issues, as well as producing a cost effective and modular IRSP system will be critical for providing quality scene projection for the next generation of infrared imagers. To address the ...
