Abstract:The goal of the Curriculum Solutions for Instruction in Middle Mathematics (CSI-M2) Project is
to improve mathematics understanding and performance of students in the middle grades by
developing and providing Education Data Management System (EDMS) software. The software
will generate an individual… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant) Increased vascular permeability or vascular leakage in the retina is an early and common feature of diabetic retinopathy and can result in diabetic macular edema. Vascular leakage is also responsible for cystoid macular edema (CME) secondary to cataract surgery,… more
Abstract:The CAMS/GO-81 databases contain massive amounts of historical maintenance data that is unusable in the present form. The primary barrier to effectively using this data for troubleshooting purposes is the "free form" nature of the text fields that describe discrepancies and corrective actions. These… more
Abstract:In order to assure accurate detection of exposure to biological warfare agents or any environmental agents, it is necessary to exclude a variety of common conditions that may confound proper diagnosis. Many groups, including ours , have found that biological warfare agents can stimulate… more

Many groups, including ours, have found that biological warfare agents can stimulate inflammatory… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will develop a laser based breathmeter for detecting and monitoring asthma in children and adults. The Phase I work proved the feasibility of constructing a machine, based on infrared laser absorption spectroscopy, that is capable of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An innovative instrument for measuring exhaled compounds was demonstrated in Phase I of this project. The novel breath monitor (Breathmeter TM) consists of a tunable mid-IR diode laser, a long optical resonator, and electronics modules for detecting select… more
Abstract:Continued advancements in wireless technology have led to an environment that is increasingly littered with stray radio frequency energy. The utility of a system that is capable of reclaiming this stray energy for future use is unlimited. We propose the use of a genetically engineered… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Antibacterial resistant Staphylococcus aureus, in particular methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), infections constitute a serious worldwide health problem. MRSA infections are usually hospital-acquired, although the incidence of community-acquired infections… more
Abstract:Nomadics is currently working with a novel chemical weapon indicating chromophore (CWIC) that can make CW agent contamination literally glow in the dark. Developed by Professor Tim Swager at MIT, CWICs will allow equipment to be quickly and easily examined to show any areas of contamination, making… more
Abstract:75948-It is important to determine the fate and transport of contaminants generated from past weapons production and from current energy production activities. In support of this goal, this project will develop technology for the highly sensitive real-time detection of radionuclides in the… more
Abstract:None of the current chemical warfare (CW) agent sensors or field test kits has sufficient sensitivity to detect nerve and blister agents at allowable exposure level (AEL) concentrations. Thanks to a remarkable chromophore developed by Professor Timothy Swager at MIT, Nomadics believes that we can… more
Abstract:Nomadics proposes development of a system consisting of an Entrant Safety Unit (ESU), carried by the worker, and an Attendant Interface Unit (AIU) stationed at the entrance to a confined space. The units are in constant communication through a wireless link. The ESU periodically determines if the… more
Abstract:In this Phase I SBIR, Nomadics will build on our past experience with micro-structure resonators and quartz-based sensors to develop a pressure sensor suitable for high pressure applications such as oil and gas industry applications. In the Phase I work, the outstanding measurement resolution of our… more
Abstract:Modern flight line engineers are faced with a large variety of sensor configurations. Different types of vehicles, and sometimes even different individual vehicles of the same type, have widely varying sensor loadouts. With current Instrumentation Support Systems (ISSs), each sensor configuration… more
Abstract:Short range line-of-site communication is an integral part of the SOF mission. In nearly all regions where SOF operations take place, there is little if any short-range line-of-site communications infrastructure that can support these missions. The objective of this project is to design and… 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.
