Abstract:ABSTRACT: Caldera Pharmaceuticals proposes to develop physiologic biomarkers requested by the US Air Force to quantify workplace exposure to hexavalent chrome (Cr+6). Exposure to Cr+6 is dangerous and unwanted, because it is a primary carcinogen (class 1 International Agency for Research on Cancer… more
Abstract:Center pivot irrigation systems are widespread across the Nation's critically water short regions. A common bias for irrigators is to give crops more water than is actually needed in order to cover uncertainties and ensure enough water is present. This practice leads to profound waste of water… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The annual healthcare costs of heavy drinking in the U.S. are estimated to be 24.6 billion (Bouchery et al., 2011). Effectively intervening with hazardous, risky, and problem drinkers would reduce both their morbidityand their healthcare costs. One way to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Preterm infants (lt 37 weeks gestation) have difficulty with oral feeding due to immature suck, swallow, respiration, and low endurance. As the ability to feed by mouth is a criterion for hospital discharge, it is oftendelayed, leading to increased medical cost,… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The process of readying a satellite for its operational service role once deployed from the launch vehicle can be an extremely time consuming process when employing traditional approaches particularly for complex imaging sensors that require the manipulation of many controls to converge… more
Abstract:The objective is to provide a robust thermal control subsystem (TCS) design focused on overcoming the unique challenges of Responsive Space (RS). The proposed TCS design will be based on state-of-the-art technologies including: variable emissivity devices, variable heat transfer layers, and advanced… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Membrane proteins are an essential component of intercellular signaling pathways. The overwhelming majority of small molecule drugs, either directly or indirectly, target membrane proteins. Arrays of membrane proteins would be important tools in drug screening… more
Abstract:Defiant Technologies builds and markets chemical detectors and it is developing a portable system to measure trace amounts of perchloroethylene (PCE) and trichloroethylene (TCE) in ground water. This GC-based system will provide onsite results and reduce the need for time consuming and costly… more
Abstract:In the proposed effort, SK Infrared LLC (SKI), a spin-off from the Krishna INfrared Detector (KIND) laboratory at the University of New Mexico (www.chtm.unm.edu/kind), in collaboration with Raytheon Vision Systems (RVS) and Intelligent Epitaxy Inc (Intelliepi) is proposing a systematic study with… more
Abstract:In the proposed effort, SK Infrared LLC, a spin-off from the Krishna INfrared Detector (KIND) laboratory at the University of New Mexico (www.chtm.unm.edu/kind), in collaboration with Raytheon Vision Systems (RVS) is proposing to develop a dual band based imager using a novel unipolar… more
Abstract:Despite tremendous potential cost advantages, there is one very serious obstacle in the path of successful, widespread adoption of Direct Digital Manufacturing as a viable aerospace manufacturing technique: namely qualification and certification of processes, materials, and components. This… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Research using Xenopus (frog) embryos, a model system of major importance in many areas of biomedicine, is hampered in a fundamental way by their opacity. No device for non-destructively imaging the interiors of these specimens is generally available. The… more
Abstract:Outdoor wood-fired boilers (OWB) are gaining in popularity for heating homes. As energy prices have risen, sales of OWBs are doubling each year because they provide a lower cost solution and use renewable fuel. There is concern about their air emissions, however. OWBs typically emit 18 times the… more
Abstract:Use of polarization signatures can dramatically improve the performance of active or laser sensors for automated target recognition (ATR) and other applications. While their potential has been widely recognized, laser polarimeters have been limited by technology gaps in two areas: utilization of… more
Abstract:Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes the development of the stable platform for a new Optical Inertial Reference Unit (OIRU) titled the Space Qualified MSTAR Inertial Reference Unit (MIRU-SQ). The components and functions of an OIRU can be easily split between the stable platform and… more

Abstract:The Air Force is exploring and developing several aircraft mounted high energy laser (HEL) systems for precision strike and self- defense missions such as the Air Force"s new HEL demonstration program, Electric Laser on a Large Aircraft (ELLA). All HEL systems require accurate pointing and… more
Abstract:Under the support of an Army sponsored Phase I SBIR effort, Applied Technology Associates (ATA) has designed an Embedded Miniature Motion Imagery Transmitter (EMMIT) based on the latest FPGA technology. The purpose of this effort was to address the need for remotely captured motion imagery in a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a major public health hazard. In the U.S. there were 13,846 deaths in 2008 caused by alcohol-impaired drivers (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 2009a). The New Mexico Dept. of Transportation reported the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase II project continues the successful Phase I discovery of novel decorporation agents that are selective for radioactive strontium (Sr).

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.
