Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): CD47 has emerged as a novel therapeutic target in hematologic cancers. Leukemias expressing the highest levels of CD47 have the worst prognosis. Increased CD47 expression is thought to protect cancer cells from phagocytic clearance by sending a don't eat me… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Organ transplantation is a lifesaving option for those with end stage renal disease. In spite of many improvements in organ procurement, transplant procedures and immune suppression, the damage done by ischemia-reperfusion injury (IRI) remains problematic,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bone metastasis is common in patients with advanced breast, prostate, and lung cancers as these tumors have a remarkable ability to metastasize to bone. Two-thirds of patients with metastatic bone cancer experience severe pain which is usually described as dull… more
Abstract:An oscillating heat pipe (OHP) embedded substrate made from low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) material(s) will be designed, simulated, optimized, fabricated, and empirically tested to demonstrate the OHP technology's ultra-high heat transfer rates under real-world microchip operating… more
Abstract:ThermAvant Technologies, LLC and University of Texas at Arlington propose to design, model, fabricate and empirically test conformal fitting cylindrical energy storage heat cooling packages. ThermAvant will optimize cylindrical battery array cooling solutions that balance size, weight, coolant flow… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: High Energy X-ray computed tomography (CT) is used to inspect the integrity of solid rocket motors. The purpose of this proposal is to improve the detection of defects when they are obscured due to physical limitations of CT. Lickenbrock has developed an advanced variant of the… more
Abstract:Nuclear power is a key component in the strategy to meet the countrys energy goals and technologies are needed to improve the reliability of current reactors and disposing safely of nuclear wastes. Vitrification is considered the preferred process
for nuclear waste disposal and the U.S. Department… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: Under this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program, Innovative Technology Applications Company (ITAC), LLC and the University of Notre Dame (UND) are working to develop new optical instruments that will enable nonintrusive, off-body measurements of flow parameters in hypersonic… more
Abstract:The objective of the proposed research and development work is to create non-lethal munitions that generate high-power microwave (HPM) pulses to defeat the electronics used to activate Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) or to attack blasting caps to pre-detonate IEDs. To provide the best Phase I… more
Abstract:QM Power will design, build and test a high performance 3kW alternator using Parallel Path Magnetic Technology (PPMT) with no at risk rare earth magnet materials that is smaller, lighter and more efficient than the existing alternator that uses rare earth magnets. The Parallel Path Magnetic… more
Abstract:A major component of airframe noise for commercial transport aircraft is the deployed landing gear. The noise from the gear originates due to complex, unsteady bluff body flow separation from gear components and the subsequent multiple interactions of unsteady wakes with downstream undercarriage… more
Abstract:In this program, Innovative Technology Applications Company (ITAC), LLC and collaborators propose to advance "synthetic phased array" technology to improve understanding of noise from landing gear. The technology, initially developed in a previous NASA SBIR project for trailing edge noise,… 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.
