  1. Development of Spatial Skills: Linking Software and Physical

    SBC: ChainWave Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This research will explore the use of a virtual polyhedron modeling environment which creates nets, or patterns, for a polyhedron created on the screen, in the teaching of geometry and spatial skills. When the net is printed, cut, folded, and glued together, a 3-dimensional model of the original polyhedron is created. We propose to examine the use of this tool in an instructional setting, to dete ...

  2. Thin Buried Oxide Densification for Radiation Hardened 80nm BOX SIMOX Substrates

    SBC: IBIS TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SIMOX (Separation by IMplanted Oxygen) technology achieves total dielelectric isolation of active device regions from the substrate and reduces the collection path for ionized charges via the built-in buried oxide which restricts charge movement. Advances in SIMOX technology include radiation hardened memories and gate arrays for space applications, ULSI DRAMS for low voltage operation, thin film ...

  3. Development of a Highly Realistic, Fine-Grained, Low-Cost

    SBC: Knowledge Matters, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Today's extremely powerful, low-cost computer systems offer tremendous potential as learning tools. However, development of high quality educational software, particularly simulations, lags behind. This research will explore the issues in creating highly realistic, very detailed simulations directly targeted for educational purposes. The domain simulated will be a small retail business. This do ...

  4. A Megapixel Gamma Camera for Arms Control Verification

    SBC: Lexitek Inc            Topic: N/A

    Lexitek proposes to develop an imaging gamma-ray detector with 1024 x 1024 pixels for arms control verification. The proposed detector significantly enhances the resolution of fissionable material distribution without compromising energy resolution. The detector consists of a scintillating crystal and associated sensors which determine the energy and position of the scintillation with high spat ...

  5. Web Places: Project-Based Activities for At-Risk Youth

    SBC: Mei Technology Company            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes an effort to improve the education of at-risk youth through web-publishable, project-based activities. These activities might include electronic journalism on community issues, natural science projects, or digital art Galleries. Activities such as these are particularly appropriate for at-risk youth through their power to integrate school and home or street life, to give ...

  6. Large Dynamic Range Shock Wave Measurements

    SBC: VISIDYNE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An optical sensor capable of producing 3-dimensional time resolved density maps characteristic of shock wavefronts at Mhz sampling rates is proposed. Each map is obtained from simultaneous measurements obtained with a novel refractometer capable of measuring integrated density fluctuations in air to better than 1 part in 3500 per centimeter path length at 1Mhz with good signal to noise (S/N=10). ...

  7. AN OPTICAL FIBER INTRUSION LOCATION (FIBLOC) SENSOR FOR SURFACE AND SUBSURFACE PERIMETER PROTECTION

    SBC: Anro Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED FIBLOC SENSOR PROVIDES AN ECONOMIC MEANS TO PROTECT, LITERALLY, MILES OF A PREFERRED PERIMETER REGION AGAINST UNAUTHORIZED INTRUSIONS. THE OPTICAL FIBERS EMPLOYED INT HE FIBLOC SENSOR PROPAGATE CW OR PULSED INFRARED LIGHT SIGNALS WHOSE TRANSMISSION AND/OR REFLECTION SENSITIVITY IS AFFECTED BY MECHANICAL PRESSURE SUCH AS WOULD BE PRODUCED BY THE DISTENSION OF SURFACED MOUNTED FIBERS AL ...

  8. INDIVIDUALIZED INTERACTIVE VIDEO

    SBC: Duffy Engineering            Topic: N/A

    PROVIDING INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION FOR DISABLED STUDENTS IN SPECIAL EDUCATION PLACEMENTS IS A TIME-CONSUMING PROCESS FOR EDUCATORS AND THUS COSTLY. COMPUTERIZED AND INTERACTIVEVIDEODISK EDUCATIONAL FORMATS MAY NOT BE READILY CUSTOMIZED FOR THE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT. HOWEVER, COMMONLY-AVAILABLE IN PERSONAL COMPUTERS AND HAND-HELD CAMCORDERS ARE TOOLS AVAIL ABLE IN MOST SCHOOLS. IF A PERSONAL COMPUTE ...

  9. FIBER OPTIC GROUND MOTION SENSOR

    SBC: GEO-CENTERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PHASE I EXPERIMENTAL EFFORT WILL DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF A FIELD WORTHY GROUND MOTION SENSOR TO REPLACE PIEZO-ELECTRIC ACCELEROMETERS FOR CONVENTIONAL EXPLOSIVES AND NUCLEAR TESTING. THE OUTPUT SIGNALS OF PIEZO-ELECTRIC ACCELEROMETERS MUST BE INTEGRATED TWICE TO DETERMINE GROUND MOTIONS. THIS PROCESS REDUCES SYSTEM ACCURACY AND MEASUREMENT BANDWIDTH. ADDITIONALLY, AS PIEZO-ELECTRIC SENS ...

  10. EDUCATING INFORMED CONSUMERS: A NATIONAL SURVEY OF FAMILIESKNOWLEDGE CONCERNING RESPITE SERVICES

    SBC: Human Services Res Inst            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON THE PREMISE THAT PRIMARY CARE- GIVERS SHOULD PLAY A MAJOR ROLE IN DESIGNING, MANAGING, AND MONITORING SERVICES WHICH SUPPORT CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIESAND THEIR FAMILIES. RESPITE SERVICES OFFERS BUT ONE FORUM FROM WHICH THEY CAN EXERCISE THESE ROLES. THROUGH THE USE OF AN ADVISORY BOARD, MADE UP LARGELY OF PRIMARY CARE GIVERSAND A NATIONAL SURVEY THIS PROJECT SEEKS TO DETE ...
