  1. Strategies for providing evidence-based learning opportunities

    SBC: ANALYTIC FOCUS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop an evidence-based approach to maximize learning for K-12 students and predict learning outcomes. We propose to analyze data at multiple levels, including individual and group assessment data, and characteristics of the student, teacher, principal, and school. Using this data, we will categorize performance levels, determine the strengths and weaknesses of t ...

  2. A virtual launchpad for learning at higher speeds

    SBC: Current Conceptions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal is to develop a Virtual Learning LaunchPad prototype and to compare the learning by students viewing this prototype with a traditional video lecture. The Virtual Learning LaunchPad will merge six delivery methods to greatly compress delivery time of a complex concept in reproductive science. The technologies incorporated will be: 3-dimensional anatomical reconstructions, step-an ...

  3. From Assessment to Action

    SBC: Facet Innovation            Topic: N/A

    Diagnostic assessment is a technique in which a student’s answers to questions are used to identify appropriate further instructional actions, rather than solely to evaluate educational attainment. The technique is difficult to use because the average teacher has difficulty implementing it successfully. We will build an online diagnostic assessment system and use it to offer a unit-level diagnos ...

  4. Fiber laser for advanced guidance research

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF05159

    Three-dimensional laser radar (LADAR) systems have proven to be effective tools for real time 3D image generation enabling autonomous target detection and recognition. They have demonstrated high probability of detection and identification of unobstructed targets; however, the challenges of extracting sufficient target information out of background clutter can limit the usefulness of these system ...

  5. Optical fiber coupled infrared laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF05008

    Mid-infrared laser have been demonstrated to provide unique capabilities in infrared countermeasures systems. It is desired to increase the power output from optically pumped semiconductor lasers to address future system requirements. The proposed work will investigate beam combining technologies and novel semiconductor device mounting that improves the thermal management of the lasers, potentia ...

  6. High Energy Laser (HEL) Beam Combination

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: OSD05D04

    Aculight proposes a new spectral beam combining (SBC) system to utilize higher power, broader linewidth, fiber lasers to meet the demanding requirements of high energy laser (HEL) applications. The system is scalable to up to 100 kW output with diffraction limited beam quality by spectrally combining a number of high power fiber lasers operating at slightly different wavelengths. The proposed ap ...

  8. Damage Identification Algorithms for Composite Structures

    SBC: Aerobotix, Inc            Topic: AF06097

    Current survivability and engineering requirements for airframe platforms necessitate the automated application of specialty coatings to the composite inlet duct OML surface. The specialty coatings have tight specification tolerances for the final thickness. Current equipment does not allow for accurate measuring of the specialty coatings. Measurement techniques and equipment need to be develop ...

  9. High-Speed Headstock with B-Axis for Machining Aircraft Structures

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF05127

    The Air Force needs a compact high-speed high-power spindle to rapidly manufacture complex geometries in aluminum and titanium aircraft structures. We propose to continue developing a compact high-speed high-power spindle to meet Air Force requirements. In Phase I, we designed a pre-prototype spindle and calculated the operating characteristics of the spindle. Our design indicates our spindle i ...

  10. Network Threat Monitoring, Intrusion Detection and Alert System for Distributed Mission Operations (DMO)

    SBC: BRUSHFIRE TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF06018

    Brushfire Technologies proposes to adapt our secure local area network gateway to the unique requirements of the DMO network to detect, analyze and mitigate security threats in real time with no adverse affects on network performance. Security analysis based on real time packet inspection coupled with application awareness and heuristically derived network topology information provides unpreceden ...
