  1. Development of a web-based system to build capacity for adolescent literacy and content-area reading

    SBC: Center for Resource Management            Topic: N/A

    This research and development effort will produce two empirically-derived Web-based applications designed to build school and teacher capacity to improve student literacy in middle schools and high schools: 1)a School-Wide Literacy Audit and Planning Process incorporating research-based indicators of school practices that support literacy development; and 2)a Content- Area Literacy Professional De ...

  2. Lab science through distance learning: certification for in-service teachers

    SBC: Ergopedia, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will create and evaluate a coordinated program of curriculum, equipment, software, and instruction that makes hand-on, lab-based, science content accessible through distance learning. The program is designed for in-service teachers to become highly qualified in science content areas, such as physics. Teachers registering for an online course can do labs because they will rece ...

  4. Long Wavelength Acousto-optic Tunable Filters for Multispectral Imaging Applications

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA04061

    Utilizing recently available exceptional mercurous chloride (Hg2Cl2) acousto-optic material having the largest known optical filter figure of merit, we propose to develop a state-of-the-art high speed and wide-bandwidth long-wavelength acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF). The proposed device has the desirable performance attributes of wide operating wavelength range, low optical loss, low power c ...

  5. Photonic Broad Band IR Scene Generator

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA04031

    This proposal addresses a novel photonic approach to the high performance IR scene generator. The revolutionary design has intrinsic advantages of broadband, high apparent temperature, compactness, high spatial resolution, low background temperature and noise, high reliability, and low cost, as compared with the competitive approaches. The device design overcomes the major shortcomings of the curr ...

  6. Continuous Wave Terahertz Source Photonic Band Engineering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The terahertz wave region of the electromagnetic spectrum offers exciting and unique attributes for security imaging and secure broadband communications. However, THz signal generation is difficult and current applications are rare. Existing THz sources utilize large and expensive lasers operating in pulsed mode. Practical application of THz radiation requires the development of THz source techn ...

  7. Optimized Management of Networked Sensors in the Presence of Communication, Collection, and Processing Latencies

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: MDA04023

    We propose to develop algorithms to manage multiple networked sensors embedded in a system with significant latencies. Sources of latency can include limited bandwidth in communication channels; limited capabilities for processing collected data, especially imagery; and data collection times. Latencies must be accounted for by the sensor manager so that it can appropriately hedge. By using sens ...

  8. Dual-Band Infrared Image Fusion & Target Detection

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: MDA04021

    A boost-phase intercept (BPI) system aims to destroy attacking intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) while the booster rockets are still burning and before they have deployed mid-course decoys or released their munitions. Detection and tracking of the incoming missile under changing atmospheric conditions is a significant challenge for the BPI system. Including a dual-band mid-wave infrared ...

  9. Distributed Object Discrimination for BMD

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: MDA04011

    Object discrimination is one of the most important functions in ballistic missile defense since successful engagement and intercept of the warhead requires timely discrimination of lethal objects from decoys and other non-lethal objects. Multiple sensors exploiting diversity in phenomenology and viewing geometry can provide better discrimination information than a single sensor but exploiting this ...

  10. Infrared (IR) Multispectral Imager for the Next Generation EKV

    SBC: Bodkin Design & Engineering, LLC            Topic: MDA04061

    We propose a new hyperspectral imaging technique based on a novel optical processor to enable the mid course characterization of a ballistic missile. The optical processor allows for the unprecedented capture of all three dimensions (two spatial and one spectral) of the data cube simultaneously. This device uses a 2-dimensional hyper-pixel array (HPA), that records the 2-D image and the spectrum ...
