  2. History Maker

    SBC: Schell Games LLC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In this project, the team will develop a prototype of History Maker, a virtual reality (VR) content creation tool, where students and teachers produce digital movies to be used as reports and/or presentations about particular historical topics. Within the platform, students will research primary sources documents, write scripts, and act scenes from history. Student work will be presented in VR to ...

  3. Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder

    SBC: Brandywine Photonics, LLC            Topic: 8212

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: We propose developing a new observational capability for measuring upper atmosphere (20-Km to 200-Km+ altitude) wind and temperature dynamics, based on Doppler imaging of Limb concentrations of NO, N2O, and CO2 called the Doppler Wind Temperature Sounder. The principle of operation is that by measuring the Doppler shift of trace gases created by the differential velocity betwee ...

  4. SuperChem VR: The Immersive Reality Chemistry Game

    SBC: Schell Games LLC            Topic: edIES17R0006

    SuperChemVR is a room-scale VR lab and learning game for high school chemistry students. While wearing a VR headset, students will be immersed in a simulated chemistry 3D-environment where they will be challenged to acquire basic lab and safety skills. Through actual, accurate measurement and experimentation, students will improve their understanding of chemistry practices as they learn using scie ...

  7. Probability Forecasts of Business Impact Variables From CFS2 Ensembles

    SBC: PRESCIENT WEATHER LTD            Topic: 831C

    The value of the subseasonal and seasonal probability forecasts of the National Weather Service (NWS) will be enhanced when the information about standard meteorological variables is converted into information about business impact variables such as degree days, wind and solar power potential, and end-of-season crop yield. Toward that goal, in Phase I we will identify a suite of such action variab ...

  8. 120-X-2 Unmanned Aircraft System-Borne Atmospheric & Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Sensing

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: 84

    To capture critical weather and SST data in the Tropical Cyclone Boundary Layer (TCBL), Piasecki Aircraft proposes to evaluate existing meteorological sensor packages, integrate new off-the-shelf MEMS sensors, and design an air-launched UAS to improve the resolution of observations captured in the TCBL. Capturing latent and sensible heat fluxes can be achieved reliably with a powered UAS (compare ...

  9. Development of Manufacturing Technology for the Practical Application of Specialized and Environmentally Sensitive Nutrients, Enzymes, Immune-Stimulating Compounds and Biologics to Aquafeeds

    SBC: Zeigler Bros, Inc.            Topic: 823F

    In an effort to support the development of a domestic marine aquaculture industry, Zeigler Bros. Inc., (ZBI) proposes to continue its Phase I research by demonstrating the ability to scale up inclusion particle (IP) manufacturing. During Phase II ZBI will also demonstrate the efficacy of IOs for orally delivering phytase and probiotics to marine finfish. These efforts will directly address the p ...

  10. Client-Centered Calibration of the NOAA Climate Forecast System

    SBC: PRESCIENT WEATHER LTD            Topic: 821C

    Prescient Weather proposes four Phase I tasks to increase the value of the new NOAA Climate Forecast System to commercial customers. The capabilities demonstrated and explored in Phase I will be developed and integrated in Phase II as components of a new Seasonal Information and Decision Support System (SIDSS) for our World Climate Service customers. The Phase I tasks are: • Improve season for ...
