  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Thermal Stability Enhancement of JP-5

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Additive technology has been developed which will extend the operating temperature of common aviation fuels like JP-5. However, the currently available additive packages cannot extend the operating temperature high enough to meet the anticipated requirements of future gas turbine engine designs. In addition, these additive packages usually deteriorate other performance properties of the fu ...

  5. Advanced Cable Connector Concepts

    SBC: Alden Products Co.            Topic: N/A

    Existing materials used for marine cable connectors each have drawbacks in terms of cost or performance. Alden Products Company proposes a program to develop a family of cable connectors and adapters that lower the present cost/performance barrier in two ways; through the use of alternative materials and through new manufacturing methods using the existing materials. The main goals of P ...

  6. Optical Rotman Beamforming Lens for Multi-Function RF/Microwave/Millimeter Wave Antenna Systems

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

    In this six-month Phase I program, ANRO Engineering, Inc. proposes to investigate the properties of compact, low-cost, two-dimensional fiber optic and integrated optic Rotman lenses for application to wideband, multi-function RF/microwave/millimeter wave antenna (MFA) systems. The photonic Rotman lens will enable the reception and transmission of simultaneous, multiple frequency, independent ...

  7. Low Cost, Fiber Optic Array, Using Continuous Component Construction

    SBC: Applied Measurement Systems,            Topic: N/A

    Significant advances have been made over the past few years in all optical arrays. Low cost optical sensors have been produced and demonstrated along with optical telemetry capable of multiplexing many sensors onto a single optical fiber. Although the new optical sensors and telemetry designs have come a long way toward making optical arrays an economic reality, the array construction they ...

  8. COMPUTER-BASED ADAPTIVE TUTOR FOR ADULT READING COMPREHENSION

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a computer-based adaptive tutor to improve the reading comprehension skills of adult readers. Our instructional strategy is based on the Reciprocal Teaching method, demonstrated to improve reading comprehension. The "scaffolded" Reciprocal Teaching method demonstrates strategies for full reading comprehension, then gradually withdraws instruction, encouraging learners to pra ...

  9. Laser Beam Delivery in a Fiberoptic with Corrected Phase by a Phase Conjugate Mirror

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aspen System proposes an innovative technology for correcting the phase of a high power laser beam delivered via a multimode fiberoptic. The proposed system has an architecture lending itself to a broad variety of applications that range from ladars to medical catheters. Keeping the commercial applications in perspective, the laser source and other bulky components are positioned at the back-e ...

  10. Automatic Registration of Forward-Looking Imagery

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Atlantic Aerospace Electronics Corporation proposes to develop an automatic image registration sufficiently accurate to deal with images exhibiting differences in scale and perspective. The algorithm consists of a global step aimed at registration of features on the ground, followed by a local step to accommodate objects with vertical extent. The global component will be based on Harris Informat ...
