Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): PROJECT SUMMARY Congenital heart disease patients with functional single ventricle (FSV) anatomy ultimately require a Fontan operation for long term survival. The goal of the Fontan operation is to re-route systemic venous blood to the pulmonary circulation… more
Abstract:Carbon capture and storage is generally considered as a crucial component of any U.S. strategy for addressing the climate change problem. Carbon dioxide can be stored underground in geologic formations, or permanently bound into some abundant minerals via carbonation reactions. These options have… more
Abstract:Prestressing strands are the core constituents of prestressed concrete structures. Steel offers important advantages over the emerging classes of composite tendons in this application; susceptibility of prestressing steel to corrosion, however, is a concern. The market appeal of existing… more
Abstract:The project will develop value-added applications for non-wood biomass combustion ashes, relying upon their typical chemical composition, in inorganic polymers (geopolymers). as sustainable, safe, high-performance and economically competitive binder materials. Biomass ash-based geopolymers promise… more
Abstract:Lithium-ion batteries are being pursued for a variety of applications including electric or hybrid electric vehicles (EVs), consumer electronics, grid energy storage systems and distributed power generation units. The success of Li-ion batteries (LiBs) in such markets strongly depends on the cost,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Wide field of view (WFOV) video capability on unmanned aerial systems (UAS) has outpaced data transmission capability. Identifying regions of interest (often performed through object recognition) enables selective video compression and maximizes the useful content in data transmission.… more
Abstract:In a successful Phase I SBIR research effort the team of Solidica, Inc., Navmar Applied Sciences Corporation-Advanced Acoustics Sector (NASC-AAS), and Fabrisonic LLC identified opportunities for both 41% cost savings and +3 to +4 dB performance improvement in a slotted cylinder projector (SCP)… more
Abstract:PROJECT SUMMARY Biopsy capability is an absolute requirement for imaging facilities planning to provide breast cancer screening services. The limitations of mammography have ushered in several other imaging technologies, such as magnetic resonance (MR), positron emission mammography, and breast… more
Abstract:The nuclear security and safeguards community does not have an effective tool to track the location and quantities of radioactive material within facilities. This effort will result in a sensor that can provide precise locations and quantities of radioisotopes in complex measurement environments.… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a novel and sustainable process to utilize industrial waste materials and energy to prepare high value commercial structural materials. Fly ash from coal power plants will be formulated and reacted with flue gas to develop proppant… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to confirm the performance of a novel, freestanding, nano-structured, multilayered ceramic electrolyte membrane (ML-CEM) design. The ML-CEM will be produced from an anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) membrane in a vapor phase method. The… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this SBIR is to develop an innovative adolescent primary health care delivery model for use in primary care that overcomes barriers of health care provider time, skill and teen engagement when providing effective tobacco use reduction counseling. This… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Once heralded as the holy grail, the capability of obtaining a comprehensive list of genes, proteins or metabolites that are different between disease and normal is routine today. And yet, the holy grail of high-throughput has not delivered so far. Even though… 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.
