Abstract:In completing the Phase I SBIR, Agave BioSystems and the Universities Space Research Association, have successfully demonstrated proof of concept for the use of novel carbon nanotube (CNT)-based structures as next generation smart adsorbents for the adsorption and destruction of potentially toxic… more
Abstract:Deployed armed forces often have to rely on water that is produced from decentralized sources, which presents significant difficulties for assuring the water is free of chemical toxicants. Analysis of these water supplies often requires complex instrumentation that is not practical for field use. … more
Abstract:The use of explosives over the last 100 years has left up to 16,000 military ranges contaminated with highly toxic compounds. A major challenge to the remediation of these ranges is identifying the location of persistent explosives residues. To meet this challenge, Agave BioSystems in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Severe sepsis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality throughout the world. It is the leading cause of death in non-coronary intensive care units (ICUs) in the United States, with more than 750,000 cases occurring e
very year. This means that in the United… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II reserach develops an innovative biotechnology for commercial production of natural astaxanthin using genetically improved microalgal strain(s) grown in a proprietary large-scale photobioreactor, and to demonstrate the effectiveness of the new… more
Abstract:The proposed project consists of developing a prototype exciter/igniter unit that can operate to a subset of expected flight performance requirements. The main focus of this development effort will be the physical integration of a small, compact exciter with a "flight like" igniter or spark plug. … more
Abstract:Biodiesel is a clean-burning, renewable fuel produced from domestic agricultural sources (such as vegetable oils and animal fats) that can be blended with petroleum diesel and used by most compression-ignition (diesel) engines with few or no modifications. However, the availability of suitable… more
Abstract:For this SBIR Applied Media Analysis, Inc. is teamed with researchers at the University of Buffalo (SUNY Buffalo) to address the challenges of Arabic handwriting Optical Character Recognition (AHOCR). The proposed approach leverages our previous experience developing MATES, a Multilingual Automatic… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project develops a pretreatment process for biomass that will be used as feedstock for making biofuels, thereby solving a significant problem in this process. Before plant and tree material (biomass) can be used to produce biofuels, or… more
Abstract:Fine-scale, well-calibrated probabilistic weather forecasts are increasingly in demand for such weather-critical applications as battlespace management, and accurate prediction of high-value airborne operations. Built upon the Phase I effort we have just completed, the principal objective of this… more
Abstract:X-ray computed tomography (CT) is used to evaluate the integrity of solid rocket motors (SRM's) used in the missile defense fleet. There is a need for better visualization of bondlines of materials, and detection of flaws, especially in the SRM's dome region. This problem is due to partial volume… more
Abstract:"Honey bee pollination is estimated to contribute over $14 billion annually to
agricultural production. Honey bee pollination services in the larger ecosystem are
also of vital importance. However, apiculture in the United States is threatened,
especially by infestations of exotic parasitic mites.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): African Americans suffer a disproportionate health burden from chronic diseases and conditions such as obesity, cancer, hypertension and stroke, diabetes, asthma and cardiovascular disease. Additionally, African America
ns experience significantly more premature… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objectives of this proposal Long-Circulating Targeted Nanoparticles for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma Treatment are to (1) develop a novel, surface-modified PLGA nanoparticle system for the targeted delivery of
therapeutic compounds and (2) use this… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology TransferResearch (STTR) Program project aims to resolve if LEDs can provide properly formed light spectra and identify the appropriate LED control needed to resolve if COTS photodetectors can detect the full spectral character of analytes in-situ and identify the… more

Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project develops the manufacturing process for a cement additive from an agricultural biomass waste to be used in the production of High Performance Concrete (HPC), and blended cement. This additive imparts increased strength and durability to… more
Abstract:Cloud Cap Technology is proposing to develop a stabilized pan tilt zoom camera gimbal system for the Coyote sonobuoy tube launched UAV. Cloud Cap is the maker of the Piccolo autopilot, which is used in many UAV systems, including the prototype of the Coyote. In the spring of 2006 Cloud Cap will… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
