Abstract:Sustainable global economic growth requires the diversification of energy sources and chemical feedstocks away from conventional fossil fuel supplies. One way to meet this need is to convert renewable resources such as cellulosic biomass to fuels and chemicals; however a major roadblock is the high… more
Abstract:Despite a 40 year history of aquaculture production of edible marine mussels in the United States, domestic mussel farmers currently capture only about 10% of the fresh mussel market, valued at $40 million and growing. The growth of U.S. mussel raft culture, which is utilized to protect crops from… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will determine whether integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) can be imported from off-shore salmon farms where the concept is being pioneered into on-land recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS). RAS Corporation, and the University… more
Abstract:This Small Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project seeks to develop an alternate aquafeed that does not rely on the inclusion of captured, oceanic forage fish such as menhaden and sardines for its omega-3 content and is suitable for culturing marine fish in land-based recirculating… more
Abstract:KaZaK Technologies and our program subcontractors and technical associates our proposing several concepts to significantly increase rim rotational velocity and increase storage energy density/ unit as identified by the Navy as a pre-requisite for shipboard integration of flywheel energy stowage… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The steadily rising cost of fossil fuels together with a heightened sensitivity to emissions has created a new backdrop against which the performance of traditional aircraft powerplant technology is no longer acceptable. Thermal efficiencies of current offerings hovering around 30% and… more
Abstract:Nylon fabric is a polyamide that is lightweight, strong and durable. The fabric dries quickly when wet and provides comfort. Nylon is used in multiple applications ranging from apparel, home furnishings, industrial applications and geo-textiles. The cloth specified by this proposal is Mil-C-… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The goal of this Phase I STTR project is to investigate the application of a new class of metallic nanoparticles exhibiting a star-shaped geometry (nanostars) for use as in vivo probes of chemical and biological warfare agents. In contrast to their more commonplace spherical cousins,… more
Abstract:Organophosphates cannot currently be analyzed in the field using existing technologies, due to insufficient sensitivity of currently fielded instruments. This inability reduces the number of analyses that a government agency can perform on a water supply to ensure its safety to humans and the… more
Abstract:The objective of this Phase II project is to design, build, and test a prototype self reporting detection system that utilizes a ruggedized version of M8 chemical agent detection paper for detecting and reporting potential liquid chemical warfare attacks at fixed military sites and installations. … more
Abstract:The ability to track small vessels is critical to national security, but not easily accomplished due to the sheer volume of craft and the range of
environments which they operate within. The introduction of smart-phones with location, orientation, camera, and Internet capabilities is… more
Abstract:When responding to an incident, first responders often do not know what environments they will encounter at the incident scene. Although the
garments that they are wearing may provide protection in their normal working environment, it may not be suited for unexpected conditions they
encounter when… more
Abstract:Wizbe Innovations has developed a fabric with controllable air flow. This system used in parachutes has the potential to reduce opening shock, the time in the air, stability, directional control, and the landing speed. During Phase II, further development of the concepts derived in Phase I will be… 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.
