  1. AlphaBear

    SBC: Spry Fox LLC            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the team developed AlphaBear, a mobile gaming app where students are challenged to spell words which are then used to create humorous sentences. This project will develop and test a prototype for use specifically by English Learners. The prototype will formatively assess students' vocabulary, adjust gameplay to the skill levels of individual students, and provide ...

  2. Detection of Hostile Fire from the Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA)

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT:Recent technical demonstrations in hostile fire sensing and classification have highlighted the use of costly cryogenically-cooled electro-optical sensors.While capable, these types of sensors come with a higher initial purchase price as well as high life cycle costs per platform.This activity will implement a broad area hostile fire sensing architecture that uses lower cost discrete sens ...

  3. Adaptive antenna structures

    SBC: BerrieHill Research Corporation            Topic: AF141109

    ABSTRACT:Unwanted RFI is a growing concern due to the ever expanding RF world around us. Not only are the number of RFI sources increasing, so too is the frequency usage across the RF spectrum. As a result, RF systems, like the AFSCN, are expected to become more susceptible to disruptions in coverage and service. Additionally, these systems must maintain a small RF footprint and not contribute to ...

  5. Guest-host Liquid Crystal Dimmable Visor (GHLC-DV)

    SBC: ALPHAMICRON, INC.            Topic: AF06019

    ABSTRACT:There is interest in developing an electronically controllable variable transmittance for fixed wing visor applications. Guest-host liquid crystal technology developed by AlphaMicron, namely e-Tint, has demonstrated the ability to meet the optical requirements for this application. However, implementation on large area, complex curve visors has not been attempted.AlphaMicron proposes to i ...

  6. Non-Silicon and Non-Boron based Leading Edges for Hypersonic Vehicles

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF141001

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II SBIR program involves a novel process to produce new hybrid ultra-high temperature (UHTC) ceramic composites that can survive hypersonic flight conditions. The new process will produce a very unique grain and graded microstructure that can offer high strength (> 100 kpsi), high fracture toughness (> 10 MPam), high thermal shock resistance, and high oxidation resistance o ...

  8. Arc jet Test-Article Surface Recession Rate Monitor

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF141228

    ABSTRACT:Quantitative ablation recession rate measurements of heat shield surfaces are essential for evaluating the performance of heat shield materials. Currently, these measurements are limited to two-dimensional images that focus on the nose tip regression rate. For wedge testing, recession rate is determined by comparing pre- and post-test measurements, and therefore, recession rate as a funct ...

  9. Aptamer-based Nanofunctionalized OFET Biosensors

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: AF14AT11

    ABSTRACT: Researchers are identifying new biomarkers to help monitor, diagnose, and treat growing threats to the human body and enhance human performance. Recent sensor work combining biorecognition elements with field effect transistors (bio-FETs) has been shown sensitive and selective to biomarkers in the picomolar range with continuous detection; however device-to-device performance variability ...

  10. Terahertz Spectroscopic Chemical Sensor for Analysis of Fatigued Human Breath

    SBC: Advratech            Topic: AF14AT21

    ABSTRACT: Sleep deprivation, exercise, or continuous mental tasking are fatigue-related contributors in DoD mishaps. Therefore, a critical need exists for fatigue detection technologies which are real-time, non-invasive, compact, portable, and accurate to aid decisions to replace or rest an individual as a preventative measure. Certain compounds in human breath have been linked to disease states ...
