To do this, the suite will include the Translator tool that translates… more
Abstract:Polytrauma is the leading cause of military casualties and is a potent trigger of the immune response. Tissue damage, infection, burns, hemorrhage, ischemia and reperfusion, and cell necrosis triggers the immune system to produce excessive levels of cytokines, often called cytokine storm, that can… more
Abstract:The problem to be studied is to reduce mortality and morbidity associated with major battlefield wounds and injuries by developing a novel asanguinous, synthetic resuscitation fluid (red blood cell replacement) that can function as a therapeutic oxygen carrier and provide nutrients for the treatment… more
Abstract:Aminoglycosides are an important class of antibiotics for the treatment of aerobic, gram-negative bacteria (Pseudomonas, Acinetobacter, Enterobacter) and mycobacteria (Mycobacterium tuberculosis, M. avium), causes of serious co-infections in HIV-infected persons. Widespread use of aminoglycosides… more
Abstract:Cardiovascular disease is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality and both high LDL-C and low HDL-C remain validated factors that predict and contribute to risk. Reliance on the lipid, cholesterol, as the surrogate marker to measure total LDL and HDL has limitations and provides inadequate… more
Abstract:Princeton Nanotechnology Systems (PNTS) has teamed with researchers from Wright State University, Dayton, OH, to provide a novel, comprehensive response to SBIR Topic A10-104 entitled, Compact Scalable System for Human Identification and State Assessment. In this Phase I SBIR program, we propose to… more
Abstract:Future Skies, Inc., a Woman-Owned Small Business, provided a Phase I approach for Army SBIR 2009.2, Topic A09-081"Identity Management of Biometric Data across the Global Information Grid using a Service Oriented Architecture Framework"entitled"Biometric Integration Throughout Tactical… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The USAF has identified a series of potential problems created by the capability limits of the present ignition technology. These limits are most pronounced at high altitude where low pressure and vitiated air produce an ignition limited condition. Knite"s Kinetic Spark Ignition… more
Abstract:Purpose: Prior research indicates that reading difficulties in childhood become more problematic as students move to middle and high school where increasingly challenging material must be learned. Although some older students still struggle with decoding, many more have difficulty constructing… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fast Track SBIR Phase I and Phase II Exposure to centrally acting military nerve agents and organophosphorus (OP) pesticides are known to cause death and neurological damage (Coupland 2005, Karalliedee 1989, Buckley 2004). Improved countermeasures to intoxication… more
Abstract:Childhood obesity is a complex, multi-faceted problem which has been traced to many preventable risk factors, not the least of which includes; food access, outdoor ads, crime/safety, racial and income disparities, as well as increasing sedentary behaviors caused by excessive screen time. The… more
Abstract:Boron carbide (B4C) ceramic is one of the hardest materials available and, in the form of a fiber composite, it is expected to improve ballistic performance of personal armor and armored vehicles. Due to the nature of its covalent bond, it is very difficult to manufacture full density boron carbide.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is to develop ultra-sensitive ELISA (Enzyme-Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay) methods for quantification of HIV p24 antigen. At present, the p24 antigen test is relatively insensitive, being able to detect only 5- 10 pg/ml. This quantity… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal details an ambitious effort to develop Virtualization-based secure application Containers and Controlled Communication System (VC3S). The VC3S provides secure application/module isolation, mediation of inter-application/module communication, as well as dynamic/intelligent… more
Abstract:Altusys will develop an analytical tool to enable Marines or Soldiers at the company or lower level to assess local economic conditions and develop courses of action to impact the economy. Presuming that rapid re-employment of the host-country civilian labor force and rapid repair of the… more
Abstract:One of the key goals of strengthening maritime security is to increase maritime domain awareness, involving a combination of intelligence, surveillance, and operational information to build as complete a picture as possible to assess the threats and vulnerabilities in the maritime realm. Maintaining… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II proposal to the Department of Defense plans to demonstrate a design of 500 kW modular contaminant resistant high power density fuel cell power system using logistic fuel reformate as the fuel. Tread
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pelvic organ prolapse is a highly prevalent condition affecting at least 50% of women in the US during their lifetimes. Some loss of utero-vaginal support occurs in most adult women; however, the true etiology of prolapse and differences seen among individuals is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Colonoscopy is the preferred method to screen for colorectal cancer, a disease that afflicts 115,000 new patients a year. Several million screening, diagnostic and therapeutic colonoscopies are performed each year in U.S. hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers.… more
Abstract:Variable-emittance materials are in high demand for applications ranging from manned and unmanned space platforms (e.g. in radiators at the Moon's poles where damage could be prevented during times of low heat load) to spacecraft thermal control (especially for micro-, nano-spacecraft where no… 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.
