Abstract:While research shows there is an increasing incidence of diabetes in Americans, there is also a compelling body of research showing that individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) are even more likely to suffer the effects of diabetes, which include increased risk of heart disease, stroke,… more
Abstract:This is a Phase II project to develop and evaluate the effectiveness of a responsively designed web application, Goal Guide, that enables individuals with intellectual disabilities and autism to effectively manage self-defined goals for everyday living across personal, educational, and vocational… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This Phase I project will be a feasibility study to develop a standard method, new image quality indicators (IQI"s) and software algorithms to automatically verify computed radiography (CR) image quality for nondestructive testing (NDT) of military airframes. Compared to existing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This project will deliver software that integrates information from repeated experiments, disparate imaging and functional sensing to study the physiological response of ocular tissue to laser damage. Imaging and functional testing modalities include the fundus camera, scanning laser… more
Abstract:The increase in extreme weather events over the past several decades has underscored the need for regional planning strategies that will support future preparedness and mitigate climate change impact on local communities across the United States. While existing climate modeling tools for… more
Abstract:Advanced rotary shear technologies from this project will reduce the cost of reactor-ready feedstocks and improve the energy balance for advanced biofuels, thus moving the nation towards import oil independence.
Abstract:GS Engineering has developed through Phase I SBIR efforts, a variable VCI solution to evaluate and characterize vehicle operating terrain, for dynamic selection of CTIS operating modes, with no required operator input. By continually monitoring the terrain and adjusting the operating mode and… more
Abstract:More than 8900 MTVR"s are in service with the Marine Corps and with its proven off road performance and survivable armor package, the MTVR continues to be heavily used in theater for logistics and other missions. The MTVR currently uses mild to medium strength steel or ductile iron components… more
Abstract:GS Engineering is proposing an innovative access system for freight locomotives that will make on-boarding and off-boarding significantly easier and safer by reducing the effort required and assisting workers with the climb up
and down. The proposed solutions would eliminate the large first step and… more
Abstract:This proposal is submitted in response to the SBIR/STTR High Energy Physics Solicitation Topic 33(a).
The need is for strands that operate at a minimum of 15 Tesla (T) field, with preference for production scale ( & gt; 3 km continuous lengths) wire technologies at 15 to 25 T with reduced… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal is aimed at the development of an electrical conductor that is lighter weight and has two- to three-times higher current carrying ability per weight when compared to rated copper (Cu) or aluminum (Al) wires for Air force applications. Our approach will be to generate a… more
Abstract:Hook and loop closures in Army uniforms have been identified as the critical sources of leaks in protective clothing/equipment, which limits the overall protective capability of the ensemble. We demonstrated during Phase I of this project that we can design and fabricate hybrid closure systems which… more
Abstract:Mesa Photonics proposes a new method for online diagnostics at x-ray free electron laser facilities. This diagnostic can be fully automated, switching among alignment, jitter measurements, and pulse characterization. In this SBIR project, Mesa Photonics will develop a new diagnostic for measuring… more
Abstract:Isotopic analysis of suspect materials is an effective tool for identifying and characterizing nuclear. Isotope ratios of uranium, plutonium, lithium, and hydrogen are particularly informative for distinguishing fuel for nuclear power plants from weapons-grade material. Existing instrumentation… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to develop Selective Availability Anti-Spoofing Module (SAASM) compliant GPS receiver for Geosynchronous Earth Orbit (GEO) applications. In this proposal, we explore an approach to design the GEO GPS SAASM receiver based on improved techniques for signal acquisition… more
Abstract:The DOE Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) was envisioned to provide a framework for modeling dynamic cellular processes of microorganisms, plants and metacommunities. The KBase will provide the tools and data to enable rapid iteration of experiments that draw on a wide variety of data and allow… more
Abstract:In the post 9/11 security environment, rapid cargo inspection has become a high priority. Cargo scanning using either radiographic imaging or active interrogation for Special Nuclear Material (SNM) requires high energy and high intensity x-rays. High intensity x-ray sources are especially important… 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.
