The energy… more
Abstract:Autonomous systems acquire massive amounts of sensor and communications data over the course of their potentially lengthy missions. Ideally, such systems would incorporate current and historical data into their decision making processes to generalize from experience and avoid repetitive errors.… more
Abstract:Perching is an essential tactic for extending the duration of Small Unmanned Aerial System (SUAS) missions. Sustained flight is energetically costly and largely unnecessary during a passive Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) mission. Data can be collected quietly for extended… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: There are a growing number of military (and civilian) applications for unmanned aircraft. To extend their mission capabilities, unmanned aircraft can incorporate solar panels onto their structure to generate electrical energy from the sun. Solar cell efficiency is inversely proportional… more
Abstract:Methanol crossover of commercial Nafion membranes is a major issue that results in lowering of the efficiency of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs). A biomimetic approach for the membrane design using either proton conducting nanochannels and/or nanothin barrier layer can produce DMFC membranes with… more
Abstract:Leveraging biological waste, such as biogas, as feedstock for fuel cell application is a key focus area for both Department of Defense (DOD) and Department of Energy (DOE) and is in line with the Department of Navy's vision of increasing the use of renewable energy and alternative power sources… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Arthritis (AR) is the leading cause of disability in the United States, with 50 million Americans (22%) suffering from some form of the disease or chronic joint symptoms. The CDC estimates that, by the year 2030, 67 million adults will have AR and the economic… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of the proposed effort is to develop a new anti-HER3 therapeutic for concomitant administration with approved anti-HER2 therapies in HER2+ breast cancer (BCa) patients. Trastuzumab (TZMB), a monoclonal anti-HER2 antibody, and lapatinib, a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: Despite extraordinary advances in proteomic technologies, we are still very far from realizing the full potential of protein biomarkers for clinical diagnostics. The FDA-approved list of clinically useful protein biomarkers numbers in the low100s, and the rate of FDA approval has… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Advances in molecular technologies over the past few decades have led to the development of very powerful tools to purify and analyze nucleic acids. Current processes to study RNA transactions such as transcription, translation and processing (e.g., Northern blot… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: Vapor intrusion is the migration of volatile organic chemicals from below ground into overlying buildings and is a major cause of large population exposure to hazardous chemicals. To assess health impacts of exposure to vapor intrusion compounds, monitoring of indoor air is required. … more
Abstract:Folic acid is a water-soluble vitamin that serves as a cofactor in 1-carbon transfers required for DNA replication. Humans lack the enzymes to synthesize folate, so dietary intake is necessary. Its deficiency is associated with neural tube defects (NTDs) in fetuses. The global burden of folate… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Improving statistical methods to provide better inferences and new analytical capabilities for categorical regression models would be invaluable to the medical and health-related research communities. Presently, singleregression models are used extensively to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: During the course of the Phase I project, the university partner Lehigh University invented a unique and highly efficient phase shifter concept based on metamaterial design concepts. This novel phase shifter unit cell allows switching between left-handed and right-handed transmission… more
Abstract:There is a clear gap between commercially available UHF tunable filters and the technology needs of current military communication systems. MEMtronics Corporation, teamed with Purdue University, intend to develop and commercialize technology that fills this gap. The intent of this Phase II project… more
Abstract:We will develop and demonstrate the key elements in a novel alternative method of fabrication of the heaters for dispenser types cathodes. The current methods depend on a wire that may soon not be manufactured anymore. The proposed method, radically alters the manufacturing approach introducing a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Specific Aim of this proposal is to test the feasibility of using a novel method of enhancing neuroplasticity for the purpose of producing clinically significant improvements in the ability of stroke patients to perform their activities o daily living (ADLs)… more
Abstract:Roll to Roll (R2R) printing, or web printing involves the patterning of flexible materials such as plastics or metal foils. R2R processing is in use today by industry and many R2R processes already exist for etch and deposition. However R2R patterning of arbitrary patterns with thin residual layer… more
Abstract:This Phase I SBIR program will define the requirements and the development plan for a broadband monolithic microwave transceiver integrated circuit which will enable the production of the next generation of precision end-game proximity sensors suitable for deployment on low-cost high-volume… more
Abstract:Mustang proposes to develop innovative, low Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) Digital Receiver Exciter (DREX) technologies needed for simultaneous operation of the U.S. Navy Fire Scout Radar Autonomous Collision and Avoidance System (RACAS) and Coherent Automatic Radar Periscope Detection 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.
