  1. Inq-Blotter: Revolutionizing How Teachers Identify and Support Students Needing Help During Inquiry

    SBC: Apprendis LLC            Topic: EDIES15R0005

    n prior work, the researchers built a series of virtual physics labs to assess middle school student’s science inquiry practice and understanding. In this project, the team is developing and testing a prototype of Inq-Blotter, a web-based platform intended to provide teachers immediate feedback on student progress while using the labs. The prototype dashboard will alert teachers when students ar ...

  3. Laser Based Secure Component Identification

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA14001

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes the development of a laser-based secure electronic component identification system which specifically addresses the risk of counterfeit parts at all points along the supply chain. The proposed approach non-destructively, covertly, and uniquely identifies each electronic component produced, allowing for retrieval of production time, location, batch/lot number, ...

  4. Conformal Multilayered Passivation for Type-II InAs/GaSb Superlattice Mesas

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: MDA14021

    The unique electronic properties of periodically-arranged indium arsenide/gallium antimonide (InAs/GaSb) mesas in the type-II strained layer superlattices (SLS) make them a superior alternative to the conventional HgCdTe sensors for longwave infrared focal plane array (LWIR FPA) detectors. However, despite the highly promising quantum features of SLS, its performance is currently limited by high ...

  5. Innovative Protective Conformal Coating for Electronics

    SBC: GVD Corporation            Topic: MDA14001

    There is an urgent need for improved coating methods that increase protection while not impacting the weight and thermal performance of electronic boards. Current protective coatings are too thick and heavy, and prevent adequate heat dissipation of underlying electronics. To address this need, GVD Corporation and its team proposes to develop an ultra-thin, highly conformal coating. This coating ...

  6. Course of Action Analysis Support Tool (COAST)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA14004

    Combatant Commands (COCOMs) around the globe develop, evaluate, and refine courses of action (COAs) due to changing operational environments. Decision-support tools are needed to enable (1) flexible scenario creation to support the breadth of potential assets, threat conditions, and situational variations across the full spectrum of integrated air and missile defense, (2) quick COA evaluation at ...

  7. Lightweight Lightning Protection System for Missiles

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA14014

    Triton Systems proposes to leverage its extensive experience in developing lightweight, electrically conductive materials to develop weight-optimized solutions to mitigate direct effect of lightning strikes on missile bodies. Our design will accommodate for the expansion of composite rocket motor pressure vessels and various missile skin structures of large missiles. We will work closely with ou ...

  8. Acceleration Insensitive Heat Sinks for Airborne Directed Energy Systems


    The use of the heat of vaporization of the coolant can significantly reduce the required flow rate, and this reduction flows down throughout the thermal management system. Two-phase systems, however, are subject to buoyancy effects which can make them vulnerable to high-g maneuvers of military aircraft. Two-phase microchannel coolers can be designed such that surface tension effects dominate buo ...

  9. Distributed Radar System for Mapping Debris

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA14008

    Spectral Sciences, Inc., and subcontractors University of Massachusetts (Microwave Remote Sensing Laboratory) and Corvid Technologies, Inc., propose a scalable distributed radar system for mapping debris that will allow high precision tracking inside a fireball created by arena and sled tests. The key innovation of the proposed system is adapting techniques for debris tracking in tornados to trac ...

  10. Post-intercept Cloud Dynamics Post-Processing Tool

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA14009

    Spectral Sciences, Inc., and subcontractor Corvid Technologies, Inc., propose a Cloud Dynamics Post-Processing Tool (CDPPT) that extends with high fidelity the results of first principles hydrostructural code simulations of intercepts to later times. The capability addresses two important weaknesses of hydrostructural codes, i) the inability to model slow fragment deformation dynamics due to the ...
