  5. Cooperative Group Management Software to Improve Communication between Students with Disabilities and their Peers

    SBC: Imagen Multimedia Corp.on            Topic: N/A

    Learning, which is far more than merely an associational complex of facts, requires a synthesis of ideas into something new. Contemporary cognitive scientists agree that learning is embodied in the fluid medium of language; it is through language that we understand the world. Language development can only occur in a rich social environment, where ideas are transformed, reformed, and dynamically ...

  6. Preparing Disabled Students for the Technology-Rich Workplace

    SBC: Onef Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ONEF Inc. proposed to research and develop computer-based interactive curriculum which immerses mainstreamed disabled students in a technology-rich workplace where they perform tasks and produce products similar to those prevalent in the business world. This project will be based on the concept of Workplace Interactive Tutorials(WITs) developed by ONEF Inc. to help students "see" what certain car ...

  7. High Voltage, High Power Diamond Solid-State Switch for Pulsed Power and Other Applications

    SBC: Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corporation (AASC) proposes a three phase effort with the ultimate goal of producing a marketable diamond switch suitable for several pulsed power and other applications in the defence arena. The presently used spark gaps have several drawbacks including switch jitter, large and variable inductance, lifetime and physical size. A low inductance solid-state switch capable ...

  8. Feasibility of Using Impulse Radar to Detect and Identify Concealed Weapons

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to demonstrate the feasibility of using impulse radar techniques to detect and identify concealed weapons. It relies on the fact that a radar impulse will excite natural electromagnetic resonances which characterize the size, shape and material composition of an object. These resonances are present in the scattered transient return from the object and can be extracted by algo ...

  9. Embedded Sensor System to Provide Superior Structural Health Monitoring of Fairing Panels

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SOCOM08003

    Swimmer delivery systems, externally mounted on submarines, are subject to hydrodynamic flow and irregular wave-slap loads. These result in unsteady, alternating impacts that can damage exposed surfaces. It is important to track the cumulative stresses imposed on the fairing panels to provide operators with a sense of the remaining service life of the panels. Fairing Panel failure could be catastr ...

  10. MEMS/NEMS High Temperature Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: SB072027

    The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) and Nano-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (NEMS) technologies to create high performance thermal barrier coatings (TBC) that will improve the performance, efficiency and lifetime of gas turbine engines. The goal is to produce TBCs that have better thermal barrier properties, lower diffusion rat ...
