Abstract:This project will scale up manufacturing systems based on green nanoscience pathways for optically transparent nanocomposites, leading to window coatings with higher thermal efficiency and photovoltaic cells with higher energy efficiency. VDL will migrate its nanocomposite technology, based on spin… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pancreatic islet transplantation is a viable approach for the treatment of type 1 diabetes (T1D). However, this therapeutic approach suffers from graft rejection. Dr. Shirwan, founder of ApoImmune, has developed a novel immunotherapeutic approach aimed at… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a significant unmet medical need to provide additional pharmacologic treatments for treatment and prevention of opioid overdose. This Fast Track STTR project proposes to apply drug delivery technologies to develop a novel use for a nasally delivered… more
Abstract:In traditional GMAW and modifications, the current melting the wire is the same as the current heating the base metal. To maintain a minimally acceptable productivity, the base metal heat input is typically much greater than the required to control the distortion at an acceptable or desirable level.… 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:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently buprenorphine (BUP) is used in the treatment of opioid abuse and for pain management. It can also be used improperly and abused as an opioid. In the United States, buprenorphine is marketed in sublingual and i
njectable forms. While the drug provides… more

Abstract:CO2 is one of the major components that cause global warming. Current technologies for CO2 separation are too expensive, especially with respect to CO2 capture from post combustion flue gas. This project will develop a low-cost viable process, Phase Transitional Absorption, to capture CO2 from… more
Abstract:Military network environments will be subject to both internal and external threats for the foreseeable future. Internal threats to cyber networks from U.S. personnel receive little attention in comparison to external threats; yet, the consequences can be even more devastating. The lack of tools… 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.
