Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop a suitable prototype based on the Active-Passive Natural Fiber Composite (APNFC0), the technical feasibility of which was demonstrated in the Phase I program. This innovative composite material concept is bio-based… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal describes a Phase I research study to test feasibility of using an ultra-miniaturized protein NanoArray for analysis of premalignant conversion and therapeutic monitoring in human cancer biopsy samples. BioForce Laboratory, Inc. will conduct this… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this SBIR Phase I feasibility study is to create a novel instrument called a BioProfilometer (BioPro) for label free detection of biomolecular interactions. The instrument measures the surface profile of a planar chip designed to capture biological… more
Abstract:The proposed effort will actively reduce noise from flight operations at watchstander stations below the flight deck to levels that do not require hearing protection. Long-term hearing loss of personnel is projected to cost the Navy on the order of $12.6 billion over a 30 year retirement period. … more
Abstract:76035-As the U.S. becomes increasingly dependent on foreign energy sources, environmental concerns with CO2 emissions may stifle increased development of domestic coal energy. The prominent methods of carbon dioxide capture, using pressure and temperature swing processes, have thermodynamic… more
Abstract:There exists in the market an unmet demand for soy-based meat analogs to satisfy the North American consumer preferences for the texture and mouth-feel of the meats they grew up eating. Current commercial products derived from solvent extracted soybean flours do not meet market expectations. This… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The market for oxygen sensors is extremely large and continues to grow. Millions of medical patients in the U.S. alone require oxygen monitoring every year. Unfortunately, the current oxygen monitoring technology suffers from key drawbacks that limit the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Age-related muscle loss is a major public health issue affecting over 30 million Americans, with no viable treatments available to stem about an 8% loss in muscle mass every decade. Preliminary studies with beta-hydroxy-beta-methylbutyrate, arginine, and lysine… more
Abstract:76181-This project will develop a cost-effective, programmable signal processor for the triggering of nuclear and high energy physics experiments. Arrays of latest generation Field Programmable Gate Arrays(FPGAs) will be configured so as to efficiently solve for real-time vertex location in nuclear… more
Abstract:An ad-hoc networking method is proposed for use over existing power lines in large commercial buildings. The network is minimally sensitive to lossy elements such as distribution transformers and tripped or OFF circuit breakers and hardware may be made interoperable with existing power line… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will develop a non-transgenic approach for genetic improvement of crops by using a zinc-finger nuclease strategy for homologous recombination in plants and a strategy for selection of non-selectable phenotypes.

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.
