  1. Cyberchase Fractions Quest

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: EDIES17R0006

    The final product is Cyberchase Fractions Quest—a math game based on the storyline of PBS children's television series, Cyberchase. In the game, students in grades 3 and 4 will apply learning fractions within three contexts: areas and regions (such as shapes), sets (groups of objects), and on a number line. The game will identify specific areas where students struggle and will introduce challeng ...

  3. Inexpensive Formaldehyde Sensor for Indoor Air Quality Application

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 16NCER1A

    Formaldehyde is a reactive and flammable aldehyde which is well known as one of the harmful volatile organic compounds. A_x000D_ combination of respiratory disease, allergic dermatitis and other ailments so called Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is associated with chronic exposure to formaldehyde. Therefore, monitoring for formaldehyde is important in residential buildings. In this Phase I_x000D_ dev ...

  4. An Inexpensive Hand-Held Monitor for Measuring Fugitive Methane Emissions

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 16NCER1B

    Methane is the second most prevalent greenhouse gas emitted after carbon dioxide, however, on a pound-to-pound comparison methane has a 25 times greater impact on climate change than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period. Accordingly, the 2014 Climate Action Plan signed by President Obama has directed agencies including the USDA, DOE, and EPA to reduce methane emissions. A significant effort in th ...

  5. Nanostructured Carbon Based Capacitive Desalination

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 16NCER4A

    Capacitive deionization (CDI) is a robust, energy efficient, and cost effective technology for water desalination. In collaboration with Dr. Satish Kumar and Dr. Costas Tsouris at Georgia Tech, we are developing nanostructured carbon material for effective and economical water and wastewater desalination. Our new approach for CDI is enabled by (1) synthesis of nanostructured high surface area acti ...

  6. Real-time Assessment of Antimicrobial Concentrations for Personalized Treatment of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SB162001

    There is an urgent need to optimize antimicrobial dosing in order to address the prevalence of drug-resistant pathogens and the increase of minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of antimicrobials. Antimicrobials typically have a narrow window of effective concentration or therapeutic indices. If the drug is dosed above this concentration window it becomes toxic. Conversely, if under-dosed, trea ...

  7. Platform for Research Optimization and Creation of Experiments in Social Science (PROCESS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162003

    To better understand the world around them, social scientists develop models and theories of human behavior and interaction that they empirically test through a variety of quantitative and qualitative techniques. However, current methodological paradigms often introduce biases through sampling constraints and data analysis techniques that make the results of social science experiments hard to repl ...

  8. Autonomous System Control via Social Insect Models (ASC-SIM)

    SBC: Boston Fusion Corp.            Topic: SB162005

    Boston Fusion Corp. and Arizona State University propose to research and develop Autonomous System Control via Social Insect Models (ASC-SIM). We will develop a unified approach that combines: swarm-based scenarios of national interest; predictive social insect models including an underlying ontology that incorporates insect, model, and scenario features; graph-based search to select the most app ...

  9. Software Workspace for creating and testing Algorithmic Responses based on Meta-heuristic Experimental Designs (SWARMED)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162005

    Military operators are challenged by managing, gaining information from, and reacting to autonomous systems. Additional challenges arise from providing autonomous systems with the means to maintain resilience, be adaptable, and help military operators understand the control strategies employed by autonomous systems, whether those strategies are intentional or arise from emergent interactions. Thes ...

  10. Biologically-Inspired Swarm pErception and Control Technology (BISECT)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB162005

    SSCI, University of Pennsylvania (UPenn, Dr. Amanda Prorok and Prof. V. J. Kumar) and Arizona State University (ASU, Prof. Stephen Pratt) propose to carry out initial analysis, development, implementation and testing of the Biologically-Inspired Swarm pErception and Control Technology (BISECT). The proposed BISECT capability addresses the problem of synthesizing optimal control policies for hetero ...
