Abstract:Tuna are among the most highly valued fish worldwide. Due to this value and high demand, tuna are being fished beyond sustainable levels in many parts of the world. Replacing or supplementing wild catch with hatchery raised tuna makes sense, but this is technically difficult with current technology.… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a wideband 2-12GHz Quasi Circulator Microwave Monolithic Integrated Circuit (MMIC) that is less than 40% of the cost of conventional circulators. The Phase I effort will perform the preliminary design of the Quasi Circulator.
Abstract:This phase II effort will build upon the feasibility demonstration of phase I. We will build an electrically tunable absorptive notch filter to enable CREW and Blue Force Communications. Two designs will be built, covering the 225-500MHz and 1350-1850MHz bands.
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This project concerns the research, development and demonstration of a novel MDO methodology that bridges the gap between conceptual and high-fidelity representation of air vehicle design by integrating engineering MDO principles, computer science software engineering, and biological… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to develop a modification kit for the AN/SSQ-53 series of sonobuoys that will enable them to have a precision guidance and glide capability. The quick modification and installation kit will feature a slip on wing and tail assembly along with a precision guidance… more
Abstract:The accurate estimation of real space object (RSO) motion is subject to the complex interaction of gravitational forces, non-conservative drag terms and variable solar radiation pressure. Currently many operational algorithms rely on quasi-linear models with Gaussian-Input-Gaussian Output (GIGO)… more
Abstract:The accurate tracking of resident space objects (RSO)s depends on the rapid estimation of orbits using the knowledge gained from sparsely sampled observations of satellites under the influence of interacting gravitational and drag effects. Examples of scenarios operating within this environment… more
Abstract:A detailed design is proposed to compare one and two mirror, parabolic and aspheric optics to achieve high numerical aperture, high-throughput, sub-micron resolution from 200 to 800 nanometers. An optimization phase will follow for the concept(s) that best satisfy the requirements. Predicted… more
Abstract:Pukoa Scientific proposes developing the "Species and Habitat Environmental Protection through Electro-optical Recognition and Detection" (SHEPERD) system to provide a capability for continuous day/night surveillance of fauna on large expanses of land such as Edwards AFB. SHEPERD is an automated… more
Abstract:Recently, there has been a tremendous worldwide interest in the commercialization of energy efficient, environmentally friendly, hydrogen fuel cell powered vehicles and devices. One of the key challenges in the development of fuel cell technology for these applications is the problem of onboard… more
Abstract:Apple snail (Pomacea canaliculata), a highly invasive pest affecting wetland crops in 18 countries including the U.S., is listed as one of the 100 Worst Global Invaders. One study showed that due to its voracious appetite, present value damage from the snail could cost Philippine rice production as… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase II project will catapult open ocean mariculture far offshore, away from the restrictions caused by competing user groups, site lease requirements and mooring restrictions, by developing the technology for Velella ? an untethered, open ocean… 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:Self-aware systems have three essential properties: they build empirical models of their own performance; they use those models to inform optimal plans of action; and they continually refine their models and plans based on the outcomes of their actions. Although engineers routinely build some degree… more
Abstract:Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration… more
Abstract:The objective of this project is to investigate an emerging spectral imaging technology having the capability of detecting and identifying improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), or landmines; at standoff distances of between 100 meters to 250 meters. Goal is… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project continues the development of an innovative diagnostic technology based on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) through its combination with gold nanoparticle labels, high-speed fluid handling, and sandwich-based immunoassays. This… more
Abstract:Low dissolved oxygen (DO) levels are the most frequent cause of catastrophic fish mortalities in aquaculture farming, resulting in substantial dollar losses of valuable aquaculture crops annually. To address this problem, the U.S. aquaculture industry most often uses floating paddlewheels and/or… more
Abstract:Pongee (Channa sp.) are an esteemed freshwater food fish in Asia, Hawaii, and domestic Asian seafood markets. Traditional customer preference is for a live product. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service banned the import and interstate transport of live pongee in 2002. Therefore, the only… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD) is caused by excessive long term consumption of alcohol via increased oxidative stress, reduction of oxygen to liver tissue (hypoxia), altered fat metabolism, increased pro-inflammatory sig
naling molecules (or cytokines), and… more
Abstract:We are proposing to develop a Doppler radar based portable sleep monitor for assessment and monitoring of sleep disorders associated with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The proposed sleep monitor will include at least two respiratory variable, a cardiac… more
Abstract:Hawaii has year-round growing conditions and abundant agricultural land, yet it still imports more than 85% of its food. More than 2.3 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms, a mushroom family that includes Portobello and Crimini, were imported each year in 2006 and 2007. Currently, these mushrooms… more
Abstract:The scope of this SBIR project is to develop the Kuehnle AgroSystem's technical innovation of live algae preservation to provide room temperature storage options for microalgae that are preferred for specific aquaculture and biofuels applications. A major bottleneck in developing algae biomass… more
Abstract:The challenge has been set to meet Navy"s renewable fuel standard using advanced biofuels. Microalgae, along with other future fuel crops, must be aggressively developed now, not later. Recent dramatic demonstrations with algae based biodiesel and biojet show that it is no longer a question of… 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.
