  2. Innovative IEP Goal Creation: Equipping Special and General Educators

    SBC: EDUCATION MODIFIED INC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through previous research and development, the team created a teacher platform that suggests research-based strategies for supporting students with special needs or targeted skill gaps. This project will develop a prototype of a dashboard for teachers to create, access, and track student's Individual Educational Plans (IEPs). At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study with six middle school special e ...

  3. Mix Libris

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through a previous grant award from the U.S. Department of Education, researchers developed Read for Success, an intervention designed to stem the summer slide among struggling readers. This project will develop a prototype of Mix Libris, an Augmented Reality (AR) enhanced mobile literacy platform designed to support and motivate grade 3 students in acquiring and improving literacy skills. Mix Lib ...

  6. Rapid Tox-Based Wearable Sensing Badge for Solid Aerosol and Contact Exposure to Fentanyls

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: HSB0181001

    Nano Terra proposes to develop a low-cost and wearable detector badge that quickly and selec-tively alerts the user to the presence of solid fentanyl aerosols with an audible and visual alert. Current commercial fentanyl and opioid detectors are bulky and costly and have unsuitably-high limits of detection. Nano Terra will leverage their expertise in ultra-sensitive dosimetric detection of threat ...

  7. PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: HSB0171009

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a PCS-Enabled Unattended Radiation Detection and Attribution System (PURDAS) that will be able to detect, identify, and attribute radiological sources to specific source carriers or conveyances. The PURDAS will include a COTS gamma and neutron detection capability as well as a visible camera, onboard processing, and wireless radios. PURDAS units wil ...

  9. A Robust Biofilm-Biomat Reactor for Conversion of Mission-Relevant Feedstocks to Products

    SBC: Sustainable Bioproducts LLC            Topic: T7

    Sustainable Bioproducts (SB) proposes to develop an encapsulated biofilm-biomat reactor that will efficiently convert mission relevant feedstocks to usable products under zero gravity conditions. The bioreactor will be based on SB’s proprietary fermentation platform for converting a wide variety of waste streams into a multitude of usable products. SB’s bioreactor platform is simple, d ...

  10. Regeneratively Cooled Ceramic Matrix Composite Nozzle Assembly for Reduced Weight

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: T9

    All rocket missions benefit from having lower structural mass and higher specific impulse, both of which contribute to larger payload fractions and therefore lower mission cost. High temperature materials such as ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are an avenue to lower engine mass because of the low density and high specific strength of the material. They also have a high maximum temperature and so ...
