Abstract:This proposed effort focuses on the development and demonstration of an extended short wavelength infrared (eSWIR) micro-camera that is capable of identifying targets at ranges of 100 to 1000 meters with a 40 degree field of view, through a collaborative effort between the proposing small business… more
Abstract:AuraSense Therapeutics is developing oligonucleotide-modified gold nanoparticles called spherical nucleic acid (SNA) constructs, which are a powerful new way of regulating cellular gene expression. AuraSense Therapeutics will use SNAs as genetically programmable antimicrobial agents in a manner to… more
Abstract:This project will bring interferometric synthetic aperture microscopy (ISAM), a powerful new method of computed microscopy, to bear on the problem of quantitative tissue assessment. The promise of tissue engineering, including wound healing, is limited unless the tissue is treated correctly at… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diagnostic Photonics, Inc. (DxP) is a medical device company developing an intraoperative imaging system for surgical guidance and real-time assessment of cancer tumor margins based on interferometric synthetic aperturemicroscopy (ISAM), a novel modality that… more
Abstract:In vivo medical imaging is becoming an indispensable tool in the screening, diagnosis, staging, treatment, and monitoring of cancer and a host of other diseases. However, the full potential of these technologies has been severely limited by image processing time and memory management of large data… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: This proposal presents two novel approaches for the modeling of interface and interphase phenomena in composite material systems. From the computational perspective new developments include integration of Discontinuous Galerkin ideas with the variational multiscale finite element methods… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Acoustic monitoring is very often the most cost-effective approach for the many species that vocalize. Highly time- and cost-intensive animal monitoring tasks include field observation, search for signs of species of interest, periodic field visits to service monitoring equipment, and… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: In an effort to improve nondestructive inspections (NDI), American Science & Technology (AST) is developing wireless capability for specific pieces of NDI equipment in the areas of eddy current and ultrasonic technologies. Traditionally, this equipment requires a cable connection… more
Abstract:This project aims at addressing and remedying the serious limitations of the three-decade old multibody system (MBS) software technology currently used in the analysis, design, virtual prototyping, and performance evaluation of modern vehicle systems. These limitations are well known and are… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): IntelliWheels, the first automatic multi-speed transmission for wheelchairs, is a significant paradigm shift in the way that manual wheelchairs can be used because it uses automatic gear changes to facilitate propulsion. The wheelchair user still pushes the hand… 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.
