Abstract:The inability to dynamically image solid-state materials at atomic resolutions and perform spectroscopy at the same time in changing liquid and gas environments is a significant impediment to the advance of multiple areas of science. Recently Hummingbird Scientific has developed commercially viable… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal addresses the need for solutions that enable higher levels of spacecraft autonomy to reliably maintain operational capabilities. Random hardware faults and hostile threats necessitate autonomous systems capable of responding quickly and effectively to these threats and… more
Abstract:Converting biomass to biofuels and bio-based chemicals using efficient, sustainable, environmentally benign, and economical production methods has proven to be economically challenging. Biomass generally needs to be broken down and separated into its various components, however, biomass is highly… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Three novel uncharged silver microbicides have been shown to be effective against a wide variety of pathogens have been shown to spontaneously form amorphous hydrogels when combined with glutathione will be formulated into two different ointment formulations and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop a dual-mode PET/x-ray mammography scanner (PET/X) to improve the way in which breast cancer therapies are matched to patients by providing early evaluation of therapy efficacy through 'window' studies on an… more
Abstract:Incorporating hypervisor-based software virtualization into spacecraft architectures offers the capability to integrate payload software in a plug-and-play fashion, enabling more flexible and reconfigurable platforms. The hypervisor allows the payload software to be implemented in an abstracted,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: While the detection and characterization of intact proteins and protein complexes is an exciting prospect, current proteomics measurement capabilities are lacking in a variety of crucial aspects such as measurement throughput, detection of low abundance proteins, and substantial issues… more
Abstract:Traditional chemical sedatives for the processing of farm-raised fish are considered animal drugs that are subject to specific regulations and usage constraints (as well as chemical-bath disposal concerns). As an alternative, we propose to evaluate the use of mild, non-lethal electrosedation… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop innovative optical materials with the potential to revolutionize fried food production and numerous other industries. A new technology is needed to solve health and safety risk problems that are associated with oil immersion… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In phase I of this program, we proposed to develop and validate detailed designs for highly scaled silicon photonic-electronic chips for applications relevant to the DOD in high-bandwidth data communication. This effort has been closely coordinated with the OPSIS (Optoelectronic Systems… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common geriatric dementia, has become a major threat to aging baby boomers and presents one of the leading, long-term economic and health burdens to our society. The estimated cost ofAD in the US for health care and hospice… more
Abstract:The Dietary Data Recorder (DDR) system developed at the University of Washington already demonstrates much of the requested functionality. The system collects and records video, voice, and text annotations, and transfers this information into a dietary rich media database. The goal of this project… more
Abstract:This Phase II SBIR project will develop a full color, 720P, wide field of view (90 degrees ), see-through head mounted display (HMD) prototype based on Innovega"s eyeborne optic concept. This new eyewear architecture is a radical departure from traditional near eye displays. Rather than… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate a more effective and economical process for extracting the chemical and energy resources from lignocellulosic biomass. Existing lignocellulosic pretreatment technologies use any of a variety of chemicals, heat, and mechanical… more
Abstract:Bio-fouling on ship hulls and other marine structures has become a global environmental and economic issue. There is an urgent need for the development of next-generation marine coatings that are nontoxic, long-lasting, low-cost and effective even under static conditions. This Small Business… 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.
