  1. Mobile Language Reference for Deaf and Hard of Hearing K-12 Students

    SBC: Vcom3D, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The project is developing and evaluating a proof-of concept American Sign Language and Signed English dictionary for held hand computer and media player devices. The dictionary includes signed animations of English terms that can be difficult for learners who are deaf to master including: idioms, scientific terms, and multi-sense words. Based on Vcom3D signing software, the Mobile Language Refere ...

  4. Nano Structured Flame Retardant Replacement for Pentabde

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unregulated dioxin-like polybrominated diphenyl ether - PBDE, in particular PentaBDE commonly used as a fire retardants in furniture foam and plastic consumer goods are spreading rapidly in the environment with levels in the human system doubling every 5 years. While many European countries have already banned the use of PentaDBE in foams, there is a growing public demand in the USA to replace th ...

  5. Balloon Platforms for Remote Sensing of Water Quality in Mixing Zones

    SBC: MixZon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We hypothesize that lightweight infrared (IR) and video cameras mounted on a unmanned tethered helium balloon and accessed via a wireless network can remotely sense water quality at site scales. We will demonstrate the technical feasibility of a ground based network to monitor and control balloon mounted IP-enabled wireless IR and video cameras for measurement of the spatial distribution of surfa ...

  6. An Integrated Ecoroof Energy Analysis Model

    SBC: Quantec, L.L.C.            Topic: N/A

    Vegetated roof (ecoroofs) offer diverse benefits, including energy savings and stormwater runoff reductions. Installation of ecoroofs in both new and existing buildings has expanded significantly during the past five years, with several local jurisdictions providing incentives for their installation and the LEED green building rating system offering multiple credits for them. However, discussion ...
