Abstract:There is potential for a vast expansion of wind-power production in rural America. However, US sales of small wind turbines are still relatively limited, amounting to fewer than 7,000 units in 2006. The major reason for these limited sales is the high system cost and long payback period of current… more

Abstract:Improved observations of the battlespace are of key and growing importance in today's combat environment. UAVs are making key contributions in this area, and sensor improvements are a key part of increasing UAV capabilities. However, all sensors are subject to degradation under detrimental… more
Abstract:There is a growing need to develop improved technologies for precise airborne measurements of carbon dioxide, CO2. CO2 measurements are of great importance to many areas of research, including climate change, global carbon budgets, and geological research in relation to volcanic activity. At the… more
Abstract:Accurate observations and forecasts of meteorological conditions in the battlespace are of extreme importance to the most effective employment of military assets. In many instances, it is not possible to gather in-situ meteorological data by routine means such as sounding balloons carrying… more
Abstract:Critical large bearings in the F-35 thrust vector system must operate with absolute reliability under high loads, high heat and corrosive attack from salt air and fluorinated lubricant at elevated temperatures. A unique patented Filtered Arc Plasma Source Ion Deposition (FAPSID) process developed… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant) This SBIR project is in response to the call for the development of field-deployable or wearable personal sensors for monitoring point-of-contact exposures to airborne chemicals through biosample testing. The broa

Abstract:This project is aimed at helping protect crop productivity by providing a means of rapidly assessing the health of bee colonies used for pollination. We propose research leading to the design of a hand-held device that could scan a honey bee colony, and quickly indicate the condition of that colony.… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses the need for improved block trading capabilities in the financial markets. Block trading, or sell-side trading, involves transacting large blocks of stock (for example, 450,000 shares of IBM), while trying to minimize market… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I research project addresses the need for sensitive, portable, low-cost, laser-based remote sensing devices to detect chemical effluents of illicit methamphetamine (meth) production from a distance. The proposed project will develop an innovative… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project will determine the feasibility of a novel holographic wave front sensing device. The advantage of this modal holographic wave front sensor is that it optically processes the incoming wave front, automatically generating the coefficients… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project focuses on the porting a proprietary voice interface to a low-power wearable platform. A major challenge of this development is the elimination of hardware support for floating point calculations that are not typically included… 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.
