  1. Learning traffic camera locations using vehicle re-identification

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA201005

    In its effort to provide necessary intelligence and analysis, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) utilizes extensive traffic camera systems. However, the large amount of data overwhelms both analysts and existing processing methods. In order to provide a better understanding and reduce the search space for common problems such as target tracking, it is necessary to extract the camera ...

  2. Bounding generalization risk for Deep Neural Networks

    SBC: Euler Scientific            Topic: NGA20A001

    Deep Neural Networks have become ubiquitous in the modern analysis of voluminous datasets with geometric symmetries. In the field of Particle Physics, experiments such as DUNE require the detection of particle signatures interacting within the detector, with analyses of over a billion 3D event images per channel each year; with typical setups containing over 150,000 different channels.  In an ...

  3. Interactive Audio Technology to build Phonological Awareness and Early Childhood Literacy

    SBC: HOOGALIT, INC.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    Phonological awareness, the ability to identify and manipulate sounds in words, is the strongest determinant of future reading ability. The developers have created an interactive phonological audio tool for preschool-aged children to listen to passages and learn and practice the basic sounds that make up words. In this project, they will improve this tool by developing a new prototype software app ...

  4. Sustainable Systems-Level Change for Literacy Outcomes

    SBC: Learning Ovations, Inc.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    Through a series of IES-funded projects, the researchers developed the Assessment-to-Instruction (A2i) tool, including a Phase 1 SBIR project in 2014. A2i is an online platform to provide students with individualized literacy instruction and assessments. This project will develop a digital library for teachers that generates personalized resources for each student. The prototype will include migra ...

  5. AI-Driven Formative Assessments for Hands-on Science

    SBC: MYRIAD SENSORS, INC.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    With Phase I and Phase II funding from prior IES-funded SBIR project, the developer created a wireless device that transmits scientific data from hands-on experiments carried out by middle school students to a dashboard that presents results from student work in real-time. This project will develop an artificial intelligence (AI) assessment system that will provide immediate personalized feedback ...

  6. LoomVue Browser: Supporting Language Learning with a Dynamic Diglot Weave

    SBC: KING'S PEAK TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    This project will develop a prototype of an online program to support students in middle and high school who are English learners (ELs) in reading passages in English. The prototype will present passages as diglot weave texts. These texts are created by blending English and Spanish words together, with passages continually changing as readers gain skill in the target language. The prototype will i ...

  7. Early Reading Diagnastic Profiler

    SBC: Analytic Measures Incorporated            Topic: 91990020R0006

    In a prior SBIR project (EDIES17C0030), the small business developed Moby.Read, a tablet-based speech recognition app that grade school students use to self-administer oral-reading fluency assessments. In this project, the team will develop a new prototype component to extract more diagnostic detail on reading difficulties as students read passages. The Phase I prototype will include a natural lan ...

  8. Learning through a Multi-Sensory Augmented Reality Interface for Physical Manipulatives

    SBC: ALCHEMIE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 91990020R0006

    This project will develop an augmented reality application to generate personalized formative assessment feedback as students interact with physical objects related to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) concepts, such as recognizing the shape of an atom. The prototype will be designed as a multi-sensory tool to support students with visual challenges. At the end of Phase I, in a res ...

  9. Online Music-based Game for Children with Speech- Language Delays/Disorders

    SBC: Iqsonics LLC            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The game, which is used by children alone or in tandem with a special education practitioner or caregiver, supports children in understanding and expressing musical patterns, and in learning to sing songs before speaking. This project will extend the existing version by developing a prototype that includes additional songs for increased speech-language learning outcomes, an animated onscreen singe ...

  10. LabAR: An Augmented Reality Learning System for STEM

    SBC: LightUp, Inc.            Topic: 91990019R0011

    The team will develop a new component of the AR app, a prototype with computer vision and recognition software to present real-world phenomena that are ordinarily not observable in nature. In Phase I, the research team will create a magnetism module would show students the invisible magnetic field all around them and how it interacts with magnetic objects. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study w ...
