  1. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    "Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic transparent armor removes both these deficiencies and provides a twofold improvement in performance, but costs 6-1 ...

  2. Inconspicuous Up-Armoring of Vehicles Using Segmented Ceramic and Metallic Elements

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM14003

    Triton Systems Inc.(Triton), together with our partner Technical Products Inc. (TPI) will conduct a feasibility study to evaluate options for armoring non standard commercial vehicles (NSCV) in an unobtrusive fashion using austere mechanical facilities corresponding to expedient basing in the area of operations. Triton has wide experience in metallic, ceramic and composite armoring solutions and ...

  3. Low Profile Closed Coolant System for High Speed Combatant Craft

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SOCOM14005

    High speed combatant craft utilized by SOCOM, such as the Riverine (SOC-R), use pumped raw water to provide engine cooling for the twin marine diesel engines. While raw water provides an essentially limitless heat sink, it often contains debris which can clog engine strainers, causing the engines to overheat. Thus, engine performance, as well as maintenance, is negatively affected by the use of th ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Representation and Deep Learning for Free Text Applications

    SBC: TEXTICIAN, LLC            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to validate a new way to process textual material, so that computers can better learn applications related to natural language. A goal is to enable computer learning methods to take better account of parse structure in sentences, which is currently difficult. Two experimental prototypes will be constructed. One will focus upon au ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: An Ergosemantic Analogy Problem Solving Platform

    SBC: Innovation Accelerator, Inc.            Topic: EI

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop a novel software platform for conducting analogous search to enhance innovation. The technology is based on the observation that as much as 90% of new innovations are really adaptations of existing solutions. Currently, engineers responsible for innovating new products generally rely on basic brainstorming tools and a hit or miss strategy. This makes i ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: KinderBots: robotics and programming in early childhood education

    SBC: KinderLab Robotics, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop a developmentally appropriate robotic construction kit specifically designed for early childhood education (PreK-2) for teaching the components of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics), especially the "T" of technology and the "E" of engineering, which have been the most neglected for this age segment. Recent research on educational robo ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Beating back bullying: A virtual role-playing simulation that teaches perspective taking using artificially intelligent characters and crowdsourcing

    SBC: Marietta Geoff E            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to create a pro-social simulation to reduce aggressive behaviors in children, using a novel platform for simulated role-playing from crowdsourced data. Through a browser or mobile app, participants enter a 3D virtual school environment where they play the roles of a bullying victim and bystander, and interact with characters controlled by artificial intelligence ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Revolutionary Process for Producing Primary Iron and Ferrochromium

    SBC: Boston Electrometallurgical Corporation            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will focus on developing a cheaper, more energy efficient route to production of important metals including iron and ferrochromium. Economical separation of these metals from their ores by molten oxide electrolysis (MOE) is enabled by the recent invention of an inert anode material. The essential next step in understanding the behavior of the ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Semantically Intelligent Knowledge Hub for Course Authoring

    SBC: Pragya Systems Corp.            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop a system to significantly improve organization and curation of on-line learning content. Majority of educational material used within institutions is stuck in learning management systems and textbooks. However, many of the latest advances are captured in forums outside of these repositories. As a result, many higher-ed courses are obsolete and static. ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Trains of Thought, a novel game-based learning curriculum module to teach STEM and entrepreneurship skills

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to design and demonstrate the feasibility of Trains of Thought, a novel game-based learning curriculum module to teach STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and entrepreneurship skills to high school students. This project has significant intellectual merit. US kindergarten through twelfth grade (K-12) STEM education is falling behind global st ...
