Conventional back… more
Abstract:The proposed DoE STTR project will provide a pathway for terrestrial CPV (500 to 700 Suns) multi- junction solar cells that will maintain extremely high efficiencies at realistic operating temperatures. The thrust of the proposed project will adapt an integration approach from MEMS to III-V… more
Abstract:The proposed SBIR project will provide a pathway to dramatically reduce the cost of multi-junction solar cells. The project leverages a TRL6 micropackaging process with ~100% yield for cell assembly. Cost savings are critical as space-qualified multi-junction cells render large panel applications… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The primary sequelae resulting from radical mastectomy and sentinel lymph node removal during the treatment of breast cancer is the development of lymphedema in related limbs. Estimates of the frequency of post-cancer lymphedema range from 20%-90%, depending upon… more
Abstract:The main objective of this proposal SBIR Phase II project is to scale-up and demonstrate the low-cost formation of 15-35 kg/yr of nanothermite-nitrocellulose composite granules for propellant ignition and as additives to explosive materials. All of the reactants used for the energetic composites… more
Abstract:In 2007, wild captured fish accounted for about 15.7% of the animal protein consumed by humans on a global basis, and per capita consumption of fish and shellfish products is increasing, parallel with the global human population. Unfortunately, harvest rates of wild fish have decreased by ~0.7 mmt… more
Abstract:The goal of the project is to genetically engineer photosynthetic cyanobacteria that will synthesize farnesene from carbon dioxide. The work will then involve shutting down pathways that compete for carbon in an attempt to maximize the amount of farnesene that can be produced. Then we will do… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a process to produce high quality soy protein concentrate (HQSPC) as a fish meal replacement in aquaculture feeds, while providing a binding agent for extrusion and an immunostimulant for disease control. The proposed… more

Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project plans to refine and test prototype facilities for commercialization of on-farm algae production and harvesting. Algae will be utilized initially for livestock feed and in future for bio-fuel. The project targets an emerging global… more
Abstract:Enterotoxigenic Escherictia coli causes diarrhea (E. coli scours) in young weaned pigs. There currently are no licensed killed vaccines for the disease, and the available living vaccines do not express toxins which should be a major target of a vaccine. This lack of toxin antigens may affect how… more
Abstract:Development and production of materials to serve as quality control standards during evaluation of candidate materials for IPE and ColPro Acquisition Programs will be accomplished utilizing advanced nanocomposite technology. In our process, polymeric membranes serve as the building blocks for the… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project proposes development of a technologically feasible batch process for making nitrocellulose-nanothermite composites in a granular form for the ignition of propellants. The R & D will focus on the determination of burn rates, dynamic pressure profiles and ESD… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a costeffective butanol production and purification process. The specific aim of this project is to scaleup a butanol production system from a small, ?laboratory scale? ,2 liter volume, to a 200 liter culture volume in order… more

An article in InformationWeek highlighted the problem: "More electronic records were exposed in 2008 than in the previous four years combined and most of those breaches -- nine out of 10 -- could have been easily avoided with… 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.
