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. Ultra-Bright Single Photon Source Based on Cavity-coupled Diamond Color Center

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF141009

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a single-photon source based on a diamond nano-crystal coupled to a micro-cavity. Defects in crystalline diamond have demonstrated excellent single photon properties with g^(2)(0) < 0.02. Our diamond nano-crystal will produce single photons in the near-visible transparency windows. By coupling a single nano-crystal to an optical micro-cavi ...

  2. Enhancing Real Time Situational Awareness with Latent Relationship Discovery

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: AF141055

    ABSTRACT: The proposed work, URIEL (Unified Representation and Inference for Exploitation of Links), aims to simplify the work of intelligence analysts in discovering and exploring latent relationships from multiple sources of massive amounts of information. URIEL will support 1) automated extraction, transformation, and load at scale from multiple data sources, including document archives, social ...

  3. Enhanced Fuel Cells for Wastewater Treatment

    SBC: FTL Labs Corporation            Topic: AF141211

    ABSTRACT:Microbial fuel cells (MFC's) use metabolic reactions inside bacteria as a source of electrons. Wastewater treatment processes with MFC's employ bacteria to generate electrical power produced as they anaerobically breakdown organic materials captured from wastewater. FTL Labs Corporation (FTL) proposes a powerful new enabling technology for deployable wastewater treatment using high-capaci ...

  5. Additive Manufacturing of Masking to Support Turbine Engine Sustainment

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF153004

    ABSTRACT:Triton proposes to develop a material system and process to fabricate reusable masks for surface modification of turbine parts. An FDM machine capable of producing complex shaped reusable masks is proposed to be delivered at the end of the program.BENEFIT:Masking materials are critical in virtually all industrial processes. The technology developed will enable low cost and short lead-time ...

  6. Recognizing How Teachers Identify and Support Students Needing Help During Inquiry

    SBC: Apprendis LLC            Topic: 1

    Through previous development grants from IES and the National Science Foundation, researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute developed 16 virtual laboratory simulations and 57 inquiry activities aligned to Next Generation Science standards in physical, life, and earth science. This project will develop Inq-Blotter, a dashboard to provide teachers real-time formative and summative assessment re ...

  7. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: 1

    In prior research and development, the project team and partners developed Cyberchase, a multimedia story-based series for students to practice and learn math. Researchers will develop and test a prototype of a mobile app-based fractions game to be integrated within the multimedia series. The prototype will adjust to students of different skill levels, and will present fractions in different repre ...

  8. Engaging Spanish-English Preschool Teachers to Make Data-Based Decisions in Authentic Settings

    SBC: EARLY LEARNING LABS, INC.            Topic: 1

    This project team will develop and test a prototype app of a screening assessment for children who are Spanish-English Dual Language Learners (SE-DLL) in early education. The prototype will provide formative assessment reports to teachers to guide their decision-making, and will include a series of videos to increase knowledge on core competencies of supporting SE-DLL children. At the end of Phase ...

  10. Prediction of Boundary Layer Transition on Hypersonic Vehicles in Large-Scale Wind Tunnels and Flight

    SBC: VirtusAero LLC            Topic: AF161024

    For a vehicle in hypersonic flight, the natural transition of a boundary layer from laminar to turbulent flow depends on multiple factors including the free-stream conditions, the noise level and frequency spectrum of free-stream disturbances, the geometry of the vehicle and the vehicle surface properties.To predict boundary layer transition for flow over a given vehicle, one or more of these fact ...
