plasma, and cell lysates. We propose a dual… more
Abstract:The development of a procedural and computational framework for improved prediction of damage accumulation caused by cyclic loading in metallic airframe components is proposed. This framework will be based on the idea that models formulated for the prediction of crack nucleation, i.e., for the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project proposes to further investigate use of a body-mounted, inertial sensor motion analysis system as a field-ready, objective evaluation technique to detect and evaluate locomotion disturbances in the horse. Research objectives involve… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mitochondrial disease caused by point mutations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) can be a formidable diagnostic challenge. Because clinical presentation is variable, multisystemic, and mimics many other neurological disorders, ruling out a mtDNA etiology is… more
Abstract:Rural college students have a significant need for improved quality and efficiency mental health services for Major Depressive Disorder. Iconic Health proposes to address this need by building upon the HomePsych communication platform, integrating a process whereby mobile symptom reporting is… more
Abstract:For this Phase I program, MO-SCI Corporation and Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) will develop reactive fusion and reactive plasma welding techniques that are capable of joining ultra-high temperature ceramic (UHTC) composites. Past work at Missouri S&T demonstrated the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to develop a novel, radiation delivery device as a safe and effective microbrachytherapy for the treatment of cancer. The radioactive gold labeled bio-microspheres will offer several advantages over the currently available systems.… more
Abstract:As part of the SBIR Phase I effort, Nanoparticle Biochem Inc has successfully completed detailed therapeutic efficacy studies of NBI-29 (GA-198AuNP; GA = gum arabic) in prostate tumor bearing mice and toxicity studies of the non radioactive surrogate of NBI 29 in pigs. In order to clinically… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The main objective of this project is to develop a miniature atmospheric cold plasma brush (m- ACPB) for dental clinical applications. The innovation of this project is the utilization of the recently developed novel no
n-thermal atmospheric plasma technology for… more
Abstract:Test facilities such as wind tunnels require stringent control of test parameters such as wind speed, temperature, pressure, etc., in order to satisfy the objectives of the simulation. Control of test facilities can be significantly improved using mathematical models for the facility behavior that… more
Abstract:Undersea acoustic sensors are a critical need for U.S. Navy surveillance applications. They are used for measuring acoustic energy originating from distance source to help detect and classify quiet threat targets, as in sonar applications. To expand their field of regard, large sensor arrays are… more
Abstract:The noise from turbulent, hot, supersonic jets during take-off and landing, as well as high-Mach cruise at altitude, dominates noise emanating from other powerplant components (e.g., fan, combustor). This intense noise has significant safety implications for launch personnel as well an environmental… more
Abstract:Innovative Technology Applications Company and Drs. P. Morris and K. Brentner will make improvements in noise prediction and measurement methods for subsonic and supersonic vehicles. Possible areas of application for the finished product include aerodynamic noise from fans, jets, turbomachinery,… more
Abstract:Prediction of the noise from impinging turbulent, hot, supersonic jets from real flight systems in an operational environment is an extremely challenging problem. The broad ranges of both temporal and spatial scales that affect the results make a conventional large eddy simulation impractical. To… 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.
