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: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
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Mustang Technology Group, LP is proposing a Phase I SBIR study that will expand the capability of air delivered weapons by providing a low cost, small form factor, multi-function radar seeker which has a flexible architecture which supports multiple radar modes and high speed data link… more
Abstract:Attaining rapid transportation of samples 50-1000 miles in an austere environment requires air transportation. Past applications have included UAV"s which transport the sample to selected location and drop the sample via guided parachute These systems can be quite accurate but they are… more
Abstract:The benefits of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) systems with regard to total system efficiency are well known in commercial applications and operate at system efficiencies near 30% with some demonstration systems operating above 40%, compared with 15-20% peak efficiency for conventional PV. Because… more
Abstract:Anti-Tamper systems are designed to prevent and/or delay the exploitation of critical technologies. One of the major tools for reverse engineering is x-ray imaging, often used with computer-aided tomography to enable 3-dimensional information gathering of an IC structure. Thus, a device which can be… more
Abstract:Diagnostic characterization of tailpipe emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx) is becoming increasingly important as environmental concern and government regulations are requiring the use of complex NOx monitoring and destruction schemes, especially in diesel fueled engines. As these… more
Abstract:Selection of the Plasma-Facing Component (PFC) material composition is a primary consideration in future fusion reactor design. The PFC materials must not only withstand the harsh operating conditions of the reactor, but the amount of tritium uptake experienced by the PFC during… more
Abstract:Rapid evaluation of ocular injuries in austere environments requires the acquisition and transmission of visual examination data by relatively unqualified individuals due to the lack of qualified ophthalmologists or optometrists in many remote, hostile, or disaster regions. In order to be useful for… more
Abstract:Mitigation, correction, or cancellation of the deleterious effects of atmospheric turbulence on wide field of view (WFOV) imagery is desired to increase the efficiency and accuracy of visual tasks performed at a distance. With recent advances in optical components, coatings, microfabrication, and… more
Abstract:Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) energy conversion produces electrical power from heat energy using, in its most basic form, a thermal emitter and a photovoltaic converter. Since these systems typically have no or few moving parts, they provide a long term maintenance-free power generation. Key factors… more
Abstract:US troops and equipment are increasingly at risk for irradiation by lasers, whether it be from enemy targeting and ranging systems, designators, or high-energy lasers as weapons themselves. Countering the threat requires detection of the incident laser radiation, the direction from which it is… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Military space assets can have special constraints in form factor and function. For example, fluid cooling systems normally used for electronics and sensor cooling suffer numerous drawbacks in space applications. Conversely, compact, solid-state thermoelectric devices provide many… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to print full-scale tissue analogues with realistic look, feel, and material properties directly from medical imaging data would have wide application in the MedSim market including planning and rehearsing patient-specific surgical cases,… more
Abstract:The feasibility of development and production of lightweight nonwoven fabric for parachute cloth application was clearly demonstrated during the SBIR Phase I project. The nonwoven fabrics made during the Phase I project had comparable strength and air permeability as that of the current woven nylon… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We will build a portable instrument for quick, easy, and non-invasive, assessment of dietary zinc deficiency. Our proposed diagnostic measurements can be done in just 2-3 minutes per subject, with spectroscopic readings taken off one of the subject's … more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal sets out a plan to continue the method development for selective chemical oxidization of one amine of a polyamino, multi-heterocyclic class of energetic materials. The approach is based on screening one substrate (DAAzF) with many different oxidants under a variety of… 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.
