  1. N/A

    SBC: Media Group of CT.            Topic: N/A

    Not Available Virtually every user of launch services is seeking methods to reduce launch costs. A reusable conventional launch vehicle configuration shows the potential to achieve this goal. The LOX/LNG propellant combination shows the potential to enhance both propulsion system reusability and launch system mass-to-orbit capability. This propellant combination also has the performance margins n ...

  2. Smart Automated Reading Assistant (SARA): A Knowledge-Based Authoring Tool for Literacy Instruction

    SBC: Mei Technology Company            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The objective of the proposed effort is to determine the feasibility of squeezing a large schematic or diagram image onto a small physical display using a high-resolution area-of-interest in conjunction with warping of the remaining imagery. The resulting, hybrid image can then be viewed by maintenance personnel as they perform their tasks using portable computers. The specification ...

  3. Inexpensive Multiple-Use Education Communication Network

    SBC: TALKING LIGHTS LLC            Topic: N/A

    Not Available An advanced ceramic matrix composite (CMC) system will be used to develop concepts for a lightweight and economical thermal protection system for hypersonic air vehicles. The concept will be based on COI's oxide-oxide CMC that has been shown to retain its structure properties at extreme temperatures. The low cost manufacturing approach and its inherent resistance to environmental ex ...

  4. CyberSlate: Computer Guided Coaching to Achieve Reading Fluency

    SBC: The Learning Incentive            Topic: N/A

    Not Available The development of advanced communication or electronic warfare systems requires high performance miniaturized microwave filters. Miniaturized high-Q evanescent (EV) is one of the most desirable filters due to its wide stopband and small size, especially for satellite down-converter applications where a few hundred EV filters are used. Currently, EV filters are made using very small ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  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 ...
