Abstract:There are numerous fields in which fast pulses of supersonic gas jets are useful. One such application is for the laser wakefield acceleration of electrons. Currently, valves with opening times on the order of hundreds of microseconds and closing times that are even longer are used to supply the… more
Abstract:Nerve agents (NA) such as sarin, soman, tabun or VX are organophosphate compounds similar to those used as pesticides but with much higher toxicity that can cause death within minutes. Use of NA weapons of mass destruction has become a real threat since the Iraq-Iran war in the 1980s and the sarin… more
Abstract:Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive… more
Abstract:Nitrate is an important nutrient for crop production. Soils with excess nitrate amounts and shallow groundwater tables pose a high risk to nitrate leaching into drinking water supplies. A shortage of nitrate decreases agricultural productivity. Measurement of soil nitrate content is a tedious, time… more
Abstract:Research is proposed for the development and implementation of state of the art, reduced order nonlinear aeroelastic models for multidisciplinary/multi-fidelity optimization problems. Highly efficient and accurate aeroelastic simulation tools will be constructed based upon the mathematical formalism… more
Abstract:The proposed research program will develop a physics-based identification, modeling and risk management infrastructure for aeroelastic transonic flutter and limit-cycle oscillations (LCO). This capability will be built upon high fidelity state-of-the-art theoretical/computational methods as… more
Abstract:The proposed work aims at developing techniques that will address the current limitations of Cartesian-based Navier-Stokes CFD schemes by exploring three promising methods of implementing improved wall boundary conditions. The three methods are based on: (1) the diamond stencil approach of Delanaye… more
Abstract:This SBIR aims at developing a high-fidelity, yet efficient and easy-to-use, composite rotor blade and wing section design environment to facilitate rapid and confident aeromechanics assessment during conceptual design stages. A well-known technical barrier for composite rotor blade and wing section… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will assess the performance of autonomic-healing concrete asphalt through large-scale testing. Each year, about 500 million tons of hot mix asphalt is produced in America, with an average price of $80 per ton. Compared to concrete, hot… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to demonstrate the high-density feasibility of a novel memory, which has both volatile and non-volatile functionality. Such memory combines the non-volatile memory's ability to retain information in the absence of power (such as Flash… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I research proposal will develop nano-porous carbide-derived carbon electrodes for improved super-capacitor performance. The high power charge/discharge rate of current super-capacitors is offset by a low storage capacity compared to batteries. The capacitance of activated carbon… more
Abstract:This proposal presents a Phase I SBIR project to develop high-energy, high-power supercapacitor-battery hybrid energy storage systems. Batteries are widely used, but have limited power capability and cycle life. Supercapacitors, also called ultracapacitors or double-layer capacitors, are… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to develop an online system for the creation and distribution of rich media content - video and computer animation. The system will provide a service to both non-professional consumers interested in the creation and distribution of… more
Abstract:Within the Nuclear Physics community, grid computing has been established as paradigm for data sharing and computational analysis on a massive scale. In addition, cloud computing has recently emerged as a paradigm in which users lease the resources required to maintain and create virtual storage… more
Abstract:This application describes the Phase I commercialization by Virginia Cobia Farms (VCF) of a combination of unique technologies including proprietary technology involving molecular salinity nutrient sensors in fish, use of intensive land based recirculation systems (RAS), novel dietary fish feed… more
Abstract:Concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) continue to experience every increasing pressure regarding nutrient overloads and air and water environmental concerns on their farms. Additionally the producers are subject to every growing and skyrocketing fuel and fertilizer costs. This USDA SBIR… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a cell and blood compatible, non-clotting drug-eluting prosthetic artery that can release, in a controlled manner, drugs or other small compounds that can inhibit scarring and clotting. Potential drug candidates will be… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In the United States, it is estimated that 8 million people suffer from peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is characterized by a gradual reduction in blood flow to the muscular arteries of the lower extremities caused
by atherosclerosis. For those with severe… more
Abstract:Agve BioSystems in collaboration with Carl A. Batt propose to develop decon-nanoparticles which will leverage ongoing opportunities in enzyme engineering and the fabrication of functionalized magnetic nanoparticles. Enhanced performance will be engineered into the system to improve the catalytic… 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.
