Abstract:Achieving robust autonomy by demonstration is challenging for several reasons. First, it is important to be able to provide demonstrations in a way that they capture the key aspects of robot interaction with environment. Second, the interface for providing demonstrations needs to be friendly enough… more
Abstract:The Climate Change Information System for Business and Industry (Climate Biz) will translate information derived from climate model simulations into industry-specific formats that will assist private sector executives and their firms to meet the challenge of climate change and thereby prosper in the… more
Abstract:Discovery of frozen volatiles at the lunar poles is transformative to space exploration. In-situ resources will provide fuel to support far-reaching exploration and enable commercial endeavors. While satellite data supports presence of polar ice, driving and drilling must confirm presence, determine… more
Abstract:Fixed wing UAVs such as the Predator, Global Hawk, and Shadow have become invaluable C4ISR and force projection assets. They have acted as force multiplers, have reduced risk to human personnel, and have enabled new tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs). Use of Vertical Takeoff and Landing… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Confronted by a vast quantity of data, presented piecemeal, sporadically and at varying levels of detail, the human analyst is often overwhelmed when trying to effectively monitor even medium-sized areas of interest. Offline, there is a wealth of data, resolution, and time to pick through… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The production of 3D models from aerial imagery has been an active research area for many years. Given sufficient image texture and a variety of divergent camera viewpoints, camera pose and scene structure are fully recoverable. Further, software for fully reconstructing a scene from an… more
Abstract:Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) is a new emerging technology that is energy efficient and environment friendly lighting replacement for current lighting technologies such as incandescent bulbs and fluorescent tubes. As performance of OLEDs has improved over the last several years it has… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase II SBIR will develop Continuous Real Time (CRT) ShuntCheck, the first portable, non- invasive device for real time, continuous monitoring of changes in flow in CSF shunts. This device will result in improvedclinical management of hydrocephalus by… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A large body of evidence indicates that the cognitive impairment and delayed neurodegeneration in traumatic brain injury (TBI) is caused by increased accumulation of tau, phosphorylated tau (p-tau) and other neurotoxic proteins including APP and… more
Abstract:Washburn Therapeutics Inc. is developing biologically active gels that control inflammation by selectively neutralizing pro-inflammatory cytokines based on a technology being licensed exclusively by the company from Carnegie Mellon University. Preliminary results demonstrated that conjugates of… more
Abstract:In an effort to support the development of a domestic marine aquaculture industry, Zeigler Bros. Inc., (ZBI) proposes to continue its Phase I research by demonstrating the ability to scale up inclusion particle (IP) manufacturing. During Phase II ZBI will also demonstrate the efficacy of IOs for… more
Abstract:The innovation is a new approach to structuring, collecting and using historical geospatial data that will make it possible to rapidly assign a geographic location for text descriptions appearing in historic documents. Geospatial location is a critical element of most documents, and historical… more
Abstract:E. coli are common bacteria and part of the normal flora of the GI tract. Some strains, including the Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC) are able to produce a toxin (Shiga toxin), which can lead to serious human illnesses from mild diarrhea to life threatening conditions, such as hemolytic uremic… more
Abstract:Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes to develop a thermal management system for cabinet cooling that focuses on the use of silent and primarily passive cooling methods. The passive cooling methods selected have inherently low thermal resistances and will allow the ultimate heat sink to… more
Abstract:This proposal describes a program by Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) that will develop a missile engine waste heat recovery system for recharging the batteries of a missile. The proposed system will use heat pipes to transfer the waste energy from the insulation around a missile engine. … more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The purpose of the proposed SBIR program is to develop a thermally enhanced, separable thermal mechanical interface (STMI) that aims to significantly enhance heat transfer by providing a direct thermal path from the high power density components to the heat sink. In the current… more
Abstract:Solar water heaters are an efficient means to harvest energy from the sun to heat water for domestic use (i.e. bathing, washing dishes, etc.). However, the current solar water heating systems cost approximately $133/ft2 and have a payback period of 7-10 years, including incentives and rebates,… 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.
