The Light Microscopy Module (LMM), which… more
Abstract:Rechargeable batteries self discharge while in storage, and when allowed to remain at an extremely low state of charge for a long period of time, can be damaged permanently and then must be discarded. The USMC finds it far too costly and impractical to perform manual maintenance recharges every 3 to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Techshot, Inc. has successfully completed SBIR Phase I and Phase II research demonstrating that magnetically labeled porcine islets of Langerhans can be isolated from contaminating exocrine tissue by flow sorting usinga quadrupole magnetic separator ( Quadrasep )… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Computational electromagnetics and inverse methods are the foundations of modern methods of eddy-current nondestructive evaluation (NDE). In this project, we apply these methods to the problem of characterizing, in three dimensions, damage in complex aircraft structures. As the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: To achieve the objectives of condition-based maintenance plus prognosis (CBM+), and realize its potential, the location and size of damage at any length scale, e.g., either a crack or a microstructural perturbation, needs to be determined with statistical metrics to feed prognostic… more
Abstract:Wolf Technical Services, Inc. (Wolf) is developing a Modular Anthropomorphic Test Device (ATD) that is specifically designed for use in blast and ballistic testing. The ATD offers improved biofidelity compared to existing ATDs, with a frangible skeletal system and soft-tissue covering that simulates… more
Abstract:The purpose of this multi-phase program is to develop an autonomous system that is capable of aligning probes for eddy current inspections on steam condensers. The system aligns the eddy current inspection probe over the appropriate condenser tube based on a provided positional information and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project addresses the unmet needs for effective analysis of protein phosphorylation, a process where a phosphate group is added to a protein to change its function. Protein phosphorylation is a crucial modification of proteins; its… more
Abstract:Fuel cell technology as a clean and efficient energy source has several advantages for military applications, including lower weight, better safety, shorter down time (no recharge time, unlike secondary batteries), and lower heat signature (as compared to combustion engines). Ethanol has the… more
Abstract:There are many different RF devices used in military networks. It is highly desirable to have scalable networks, where new devices can be readily installed without hardware or software changes elsewhere in the network. It is known that achieving this goal
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Although some gene mutations can predict response to certain targeted therapies, single-gene testing has limits. Multiple important signaling pathways that may be the causes of human malignancy have continuously been discovered and dissected. Pathway and network… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to develop novel hyperosmotic nanoemulsions for the prevention and treatment of infected wounds. Wound infections, whether acute or chronic, affects millions of Americans and have significant monetary and physiologic impacts on… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Inhibitors of Mycobacterial Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase B (mPTPB) for therapy of tuberculosis Aarden Pharmaceuticals Project Summary/Abstract The need exists for a new, breakthrough therapeutic for tuberculosis (TB). Current treatment regimens with toxic… more
Abstract:The Phase I program is directed at defining a buoy configuration that will capture the improved signal-to-noise ratios of surface or near-surface targets-of-interest when the acoustic sensor is located below the critical depth and as close to the ocean bottom as possible, capitalizing on the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Improvements such as increased array size and better non-uniformity correction have been made to resistive emitter arrays fabricated on silicon (Si). There exist additonal wavelengths of interest whose emitter devices require fabrication in other materials, such as gallium arsenide (GaAs)… 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.
