Abstract:In this proposal, we have proposed a program for twenty months to build on the basic ideas and feasibility developed in Phase I of this SBIR in order to demonstrate the practical use of DSRC technologies with signal controller for adaptive timing with a goal towards commercialization.
Abstract:Spectral beam combination (SBC) of fiber lasers is the most practical approach to DEW-class HELs using diode-pumped fiber lasers. Use of conventional diffraction gratings to combine wavelengths is limited in that metal is inherently absorbing. Regardless of the metal layer thickness, optical power… more
Abstract:Conventional generation of a high-quality RF carrier (signal) beyond 50GHz requires high precision cavity engineering that inherently restricts contiguous bandwidth coverage. Worse, even if one were capable of fabricating a set of such stabilized, frequency-dense cavities to mimic discrete 30-120GHz… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In contrast to the NIR band, which is supported by an infrastructure of devices developed to serve telecommunication applications, the SWIR band remains out of reach for critical defense and commercial applications. While it is relatively simple to construct a low-noise oscillator within… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this phase 2 SBIR proposal is to position our novel biologic GE2 for human clinical trials in allergic disease though the completion of critical preclinical development research activities. GE2, a genetically engineered human fusion protein… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to develop novel hydrogel drug-delivery systems. We have developed linkers for drug conjugation to circulating macromolecules that release the native drug by beta-eliminative cleavage at predictable rates with half-lives spanning hours to… more
Abstract:MDA plans to use sensors such as PTSS, SM-3, UEWR, and AN/TPY-2 to track and intercept ballistic missiles. In order to be successful, the C2BMC element must: 1) achieve and maintain stereo tracks, 2) perform target characterization, 3) prioritize and assign targets to interceptors, and 4) handover… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Over the last twenty years the United States has become dependent on space technology for communications, precision tracking and many other applications. Globalization of the world"s economy, which has also dramatically increased over the past twenty years, has resulted in this same… more
Abstract:One of the primary research objectives for multi-sensor data fusion within the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) is the development of novel techniques to enable robust target discrimination. While great strides have been made in recent years to advance capabilities through the use of… more
Abstract:Missile Defense Agency (MDA) recently adopted the Phased Adaptive Approach (PAA) to enhance the Ballistic Missile Defense System"s (BMDS) ability to counter emerging threats in the Middle East and Southeast Asia. PAA primarily focuses on fielding new sensor technology (e.g. AN/TPY-2 and PTSS)… more
Abstract:The NASA's PATH mission includes the GeoSTAR satellite that carries aboard a microwave sounder employing an array of 375 microwave antennas with corresponding receivers. Each receiver is tuned to the 180GHz frequency, while the intermediate frequency (IF) reaches 500MHz. The IF signal is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The expense in operating legacy aircraft is reduced if the aerodynamic performance can be improved. Many of these aircraft were designed before modern prediction methods and flow controls were available and it is probable that operating costs could be reduced if recent advances were used.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This SBIR grant application is in response to PA-11-335, from Lab to Marketplace: Tools for Biomedical and Behavioral Research. The intent of PA-11-335 is to help move useful technologies from non-commercial laboratories into the commercial marketplace by… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose an innovative microtechnology-enhanced surgical device that solves a significant therapeutic bottleneck in the treatment of lens cataract in children. As the leading cause of childhood blindness, lens cataract interferes with the optical performance of… more
Abstract:Whole blood remains the cornerstone specimen type used in molecular analysis. Changes in the DNA, RNA, protein, peptide, metabolic, and blood cell analyte levels during pre-analytic specimen handling between collection and eventual molecular analysis impacts testing accuracy and delegitimizes any… 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.
