To demonstrate technical feasibility,… more
Abstract:The use of Biodiesel in the U.S. is presently hampered by a lack of suitable feedstocks that do not compete with the food industry. The original biodiesel feedstock was food grade soybean oil, and became a significant problem: 1) politically, because of the impact on food pricing and 2) economically… more
Abstract:This proposal's primary technical objective is to develop core mateials, to build and test a high temperature manufacturing and engineering demonstration article using inVision's cellular core technology, and to fulfill the solicitations specific objectives of proposing full scale concepts… more
Abstract:In order to improve situational awareness in high-density urban areas and complex terrains where threats can come from different elevations, three-dimensional mapping and visualization systems could prove to be very effective. Building systems that can integrate dense, live sensor data with existing… more
Abstract:Spatial Cognition, LLC is nearing the completion of work on Phase I research and development effort entitled"Immersive Vision, Data Fusion and Threat Awareness for Enhanced Sensor-to-Shooter Engagement/Targeting". The major goal of this effort is to leverage advances in sensor technology,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Autodissemination is a novel technique for insect control whereby target insects spread insecticide to their own habitats through their innate behaviors: a small treatment area results in far wider and target-specific coverage. This concept shows high potential… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Each year, an estimated 1.7 million patients in the U.S. experience a hospital infection (CDC). Approximately 750,000 of these infections lead to severe sepsis, with over 200,000 patients dying . As a result, 16 billion (40% of all intensive care unit… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 22 million people in the US suffer from asthma (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute). As a result, the annual economic cost of asthma is 19.7 billion. Globally, an estimated 300 million people worldwide have asthma, with 250,000 annual deaths… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is an urgent need for novel therapies to treat malignant astrocytomas, the most common and aggressive primary tumor of the nervous system. Using current standard of care, patients diagnosed with these tumors havean average life expectancy of 18 months and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this Phase 1 SBIR application is to identify and structurally characterize compounds in chocolate that could be used to treat tissue inflammation associated with gingivitis and periodontitis. Previous studies have demonstrated that water soluble… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Magnetic beads have gained increasing use as a convenient separation technique for many forms of cell, nucleic acid and protein isolations and analyses. In particular, the manufacturers of clinical immunoassays utilizemagnetic beads both as a solid support for… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Conducting and completing clinical trials relies on successful recruitment of enough patient volunteers, who are appropriate matches, for any given study. Corengi, Inc. has developed a technology platform that supportsa dedicated website with a matching engine… more
Abstract:Tumor Paints for real-time intraoperative visualization of solid tumors enable more complete resection while sparing surrounding normal tissue. For brain tumors this is of paramount importance, since removal of additional tissue can unnecessarily increasecognitive and functional impairment. The… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and validate (in phase I) detailed designs for highly scaled silicon photonic-electronic chips for applications relevant to the DOD in high-bandwidth data communication. This effort will be closely coordinated with the OPSIS (Optoelectronic Systems Integration in… 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.
