  1. Intelligent Molecular Model Kit and Software Suite for Improving High School Chemistry Instruction and Student Achievement

    SBC: MolySym, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Model perception and understanding the spatial structure of organic molecules have historically been a source of difficulty for high school chemistry students. The classic ball-and-stick model, developed in 1865, is still used today to convey the fundamental characteristics of a molecular system. This model is an inadequate representation of a dynamic system, which fails to accurately represent ...

    SBIR Phase I 2007 Department of Education

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF071344

    Modern turbine engines undergo extensive ground testing in test cells during development. These engines are instrumented with numerous strain gages for high-frequency dynamic strain measurements. Currently, analog signals from these gages are routed out of the test cell to remote data acquisition equipment over hundreds of feet of wire. With up to 200 gages to be installed, the task of patching ...

  3. Unresolved Resident Space Object (RSO) Characterization Using Time-Frequency Analysis


    Defense of U.S. space assets depends on the successful detection and monitoring of potential threats, including the ability to recognize abnormal spacecraft activities. Although work has been done in this area using resolved images from ground- and space-based sensors, methodologies to characterize unresolved resident space objects (RSO) have received little attention. We propose to develop tech ...

  8. Optoelectronic Analog-Digital Converter

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF07T028

    We propose a novel poly-phase sampling scheme for an optoelectronic analog-to-digital converter (ADC) module which entails parallel sampling of different phases of an input RF signal to realize a 12-bit 10.24GSPS RF signal AD conversion. A unique feature of this approach is that electrical-in to electrical-out signal transfer is maintained for the optoelectronic sampling and demultiplexing circuit ...
