  6. Game-based Architecture for Mentor-Enhanced Training Environments (GAMETE)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: A12025

    The widespread use of serious games for military training has been accompanied by a growing concern that too little attention is paid to the underlying instructional design or pedagogical theory. Even in objective-driven game design, serious games with cognitive learning objectives can lack effective, customized feedback. Tutoring systems, such as AutoTutor, create opportunities for learners to ...

  10. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...
