The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Infowriter: A Student Feedback And Formative Assessment Environment For Writing Information And Explanatory Texts


    The project team is developing a prototype of InfoWriter, a Web 2.0 concept mapping tool and writing environment to support students in writing informational and explanatory texts. The product will be used in middle and high school English Language Arts classrooms, and others as appropriate, to supplement traditional writing assignments. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the ...

  2. Fast-Running Physics-Based Models for Intercept Debris Aero-heating and Aero-thermal Demise

    SBC: Shearwater Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA12009

    Accurate prediction of aero-thermal demise of post-intercept debris is a high priority for the United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA). Predictive tools for assessing the aero-thermal demise of intercept debris are needed to support BMDS effectiveness evaluations, flight test and range safety operations, and consequence mitigation assessments. During this Phase I effort, Shearwater Technology ...

  4. Detection of Liquid Contaminants on Surfaces Using Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: CBD12104

    Quick detection of Chemical/Biological (CB) agents in the field can provide critical reconnaissance and contamination avoidance. CB agents pose a serious threat to both civilian and military sectors, and present techniques rely on dangerous collection methods, active measurement through external infrared (IR) sources, and/or are time-consuming. EPIR proposes to provide critically needed improvemen ...
