  1. Graspable Math Activities

    SBC: GRASPABLE INC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through previous grant awards from IES, researchers developed Graspable Math, a tablet-based intervention where middle and high school students create and manipulate complex expressions for basic operations as well as equations and equations systems and inequalities. In this project, the team will develop a prototype of Graspable Math Activities, an app with novel kinds of algebra practice and ass ...

  2. Extended Short-Wavelength Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPA) for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: A16042

    Hyperspectral imaging at full short- and extended short-wavelength infrared spectral band (0.92.5 m) has important military applications. When used for imaging, a SWIR camera can operate at night using light reflected off the subject in the scene, generating high resolution images with details such as shadows and surface roughness. Compared to thermal infrared imaging, SWIR images look more like v ...

  3. Surface Haptic Technology for Geospatial Display

    SBC: Tanvas, Inc.            Topic: A15049

    The goal of this development effort is to provide warfighters with inexpensive methods to view geospatial intelligence information on a hand-held tablet through their sense of touch. This allows eyes-free and silent operation without generating light. This proposal deals with two surface haptic display technologies. Variable-friction displays create haptic effects by varying the coefficient of fri ...

  4. Colloidal Quantum Dots for Cost Reduction in EO/IR Detectors for Infrared Imaging

    SBC: Episensors, Inc.            Topic: A17029

    Technical Abstract (200 word limit):While state-of-the-art microbolometers demonstrate impressive capabilities for low-cost uncooled long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) imaging, there is currently a need for low-cost, mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) imaging systems capable of high performance with fast frame rates at high operating temperatures. HgTe colloidal quantum dot (CQD) focal plane arrays (FPAs ...

  6. Scaling & Supramolecular Engineering of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15AT014

    Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are adsorbents that show promise in toxic chemical remediation, medical oxygen storage, high-value gas recovery, and multiple other military and civilian applications. However, a lack of quality-controlled supply limits these materials to laboratory environments. This work will borrow from industrial Quality practices to ensure supplied material conforms to specific ...

  7. Scalable Manufacturing of Functional Yarns for Textile-based Energy Storage

    SBC: Natural Fiber Welding, Inc.            Topic: A17AT013

    Natural fiber welding (NFW) is a disruptive bioengineering platform that has broad applications to manufacturing high performance materials and composites from abundant natural materials.By careful control of NFW process conditions, native order and structure of biopolymers is retained thus creating strong composites without glue while preserving the impressive native physical characteristics of f ...

  8. Thin Film Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals for Sensor Applications- Phase II

    SBC: Summit Information Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A17AT001

    Deposition of highly conductive, continuous thin film metals has proven to be a significant challenge. There are several techniques that allow deposition of these metals, but their application is limited to planar surfaces and only offer complete line of sight deposition. During a recent Phase I STTR project,Summit Information Solutions, Inc. (Summit), in partnership with University of Alabama in ...

  9. Cluster UAS Smart Munition for Missile Deployment

    SBC: Technology Catalyst LLC            Topic: A17095

    Commercially available quad-copters could provide an innovative smart attack capability to existing military deployment platforms. This proposal demonstrates a plan to develop a payload for the ATACMS or GMLRS missile systems to deploy a "section" of UAS devices on the battlefield. Once there, these quad-copter UAS devices will navigate to and attack a target of interest using explosively formed p ...

  10. Measurement of Force in Personnel Parachute Risers

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: A17127

    The objective of this Phase I SBIR program is to design and build a system that measures the strain of (or the force transferred through) the parachute riser fabric throughout a paratrooper jump.More specifically, a surface applied riser sensor shall provide a non-invasive mechanism to monitor the forces and resulting strain on risers during a jump.These sensors are comprised of NanoSonics patente ...
