Several promising… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Advanced Technology & Research (ATR) response to SBIR solicitation AF121-098 is discussed; the title is:"Guided Munition Delivery Accuracy Methodology for Weaponeering Against Moving Targets (GuMDAM-AMT)". The solicitation addresses the extension of JMEMS weaponeering… more
Abstract:ATR has proposed an interface system concept, Compensated Ramp Interface System (CRIS), comprised of a landing platform and a transfer platform. The landing platform provides continuous support to the ramp, and the transfer platform provides a transition interface for a vehicle to cross from the… more
Abstract:ATR has proposed a robotic anchoring system concept, dubbed"RoboAnchor,"which takes advantage of recent developments in robotics, sensing technologies, and control systems. RoboAnchor will work in both soft and hard seafloor conditions. It has three individually controlled legs (i.e.,… more
Abstract:The trend of replacing mechanical drive systems with power electronics and electrical drives has led to significant increases in the on-board power requirements in military aircraft. Although electrical systems are typically highly efficient, still a significant portion of the electrical energy is… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is designed to investigate the feasibility of manufacturing a Lab-on-a-Film? microarray device on a reel-to-reel assembly line. Reel-to-reel manufacturing has the potential to drastically reduce device cost because hundreds of parts per… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Acute respiratory infections are the third leading cause of death worldwide, and account for 4.2 million deaths annually; more than 40% are children under five. Conventional techniques are often either too slow (e.g.,conventional cultures require 5 to 10 days)… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Sample preparation frequently presents a bottleneck for clinical molecular biology workflows. Whereas there are many readout detection modalities, there are only a handful of automated sample preparation workflow strategies. Existing instruments that are built… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of this Phase I SBIR effort is to develop and demonstrate a multifunction, multi-beam X-band subarray that is capable of simultaneously supporting communications for satellite operations and radar for air/space surveillance. Under this proposed effort, Alpha Omega… more
Abstract:For humans and robots to effectively work together, they must share a common understanding of concepts defining the environment and the relationship of those concepts. In this proposal, we present an approach for dynamic interface creation which takes advantage of a robot-centric ontology. We first… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force has the need to advance high speed vehicle technology and experimental flight test methods quickly and cheaply. Heretofore, the Air Force test programs have consumed too much time (up to 5 years) and money ($10,000,000) for a single test flight. This puts too much pressure… more
Abstract:The proposed program is for the design of a multiple-beam electron gun and beam transport system suitable for integration with a novel amplifier capable of generating more than 2 kW of output power over a very broad bandwidth. As part of the proposed effort, beam phasespace from gun design will be… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project addresses the need for new and minimally invasive approaches to the management of dental caries, a microbial infection of teeth. Caries is one of the most widespread of chronic diseases that infects nearly every American during their lifetime.… more
Abstract:Our approach is to use the vHealthCare platform to present First Responder training scenarios through a game, Virtual Responder, designed to teach medical diagnostics and procedures. This mobile application will initially be developed for deployment on an Android tablet with a long-term goal of also… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Standard of care for surgical resection of rectal cancer is the performance of low anterior resection (LAR). After removal of the cancerous segment, a surgical stapler is used to restore continuity by creating an anastomosis between the resulting ends of… more
Abstract:The most up-to-date measurements of astronomical sources are accessible through the Virtual Astronomical Observatory (VAO), which is constantly fed by ongoing modern sky surveys while also having access to older static catalogs. We propose to produce a software package that will leverage the ever… more
Abstract:A continuing and growing threat to US military personnel and civilians is exposure to toxic chemicals and pathogens. Useful detection systems exist, but it remains imperative to investigate new technologies that have the potential to significantly improve the cost, sensitivity, and size of sensor… more
Abstract:A continuing threat to U.S. military personnel and civilians is exposure to toxic chemicals and pathogens.

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.
