  2. A Computer-based Social Intervention for Students with High Functioning ASD: Using Technology to Improve Special Education

    SBC: 3-C Institute for Social Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Students with high functioning autism spectrum disorders (HF-ASD) face unique challenges with social skills and social relationships, often experiencing heightened levels of social isolation and exclusion from social opportunities. Without intervention, these social difficulties can interfere significantly with students’ ability to engage in and learn at school. However, few social inte ...

  3. Software to Compute Effect Sizes for Cluster-Randomized Trials

    SBC: Biostatistical Programming Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: In education research, the standardized mean difference (symbolized by d) is the predominant effect size index. It is calculated as the difference between the treatment-group and control-group means, divided by the pooled standard deviation. Using d allows the impacts of education interventions to be compared even when they have been evaluated using different measures or study designs. Ca ...

  4. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: MERCURY DATA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 121FT1

    We propose to develop an advanced navigation solution for public transportation passengers that will guide them from their origin to single or multiple destination points and across multiple modes of transportation. Passengers will simply need to enter their destination (and optionally a starting point) and the system will select optimal and alternative routes. The navigation software will run on ...

  5. Stilbene Production for Fast Neutron Detection

    SBC: INRAD OPTICS, INC.            Topic: 111001

    The detection of neutrons is a critical capability for the identification of special nuclear materials in homeland security applications. Both plutonium and uranium can be detected by their neutron signatures. Next-generation detectors should efficiently detect fission neutrons, even in a high background of gamma rays. Neutron detection systems consisting of 3He have found widespread use due to th ...

  6. Low Cost Stabilized Laser Diode System

    SBC: Ceebco, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 1 SBIR project aims to develop a frequency stabilized laser diode system suitable for application in optical metrology and in displacement measurement. The compact design of the semiconductor laser lends itself to many applications where a coherent light source is required, but space is at a premium. Some fields, such as precision optical metrology require a coherent light source whose ...

  7. Porous Membrane Electrode for Quantitative Detection of Toxins

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 816N

    There is a need for a simple, portable, quantitative method to monitor the presence of Harmful Algal Blooms. Electrochemical detection offers some advantages for analysis, but traditional sensors are not practical for routine field use. Adapting colorimetric immunoassays on porous, flow-through electrodes can provide a means for rapid, low-cost, portable quantitative environmental analysis. Thi ...

  8. Social Tutor for Supporting the Transition from Elementary to Middle School

    SBC: 3-C Institute for Social Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A growing body of research underscores the need to prepare students socially—as well as academically—to ensure successful transition to middle school and foster subsequent academic success. This project team is developing a prototype of a series of web-based interactive games to help students practice and learn needed social skills to successfully transition from grade school to middle school. ...

  9. Tunable High Quality Factor Radio Frequency Filters

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SB12A006

    Next generation DoD electronic warfare (EW) and commercial communication systems are currently faced with the challenge of delivering a receiver capable of multi-band reception. The receiver must meet various wireless standards and cover an expanse of frequencies and bandwidths. Traditionally the solution to the multi-band converge problem employed many off chip frequency fixed filters and an indi ...
