Abstract:The primary focus of Phase II is to undertake a disciplined product development of a new Anti-Tamper technology of very thin foils that can detect both physical tampering and a broad range of magnetic/EM/RF based (non-contact) probing. This program will conclude with affordable and reliable… more
Abstract:The proposed solid-state PMAD systems with its much smaller/lighter/higher efficiency solution approach could have major impacts to reducing launch weight/volume thereby both reducing launch costs and increasing equipment (sensor) deployment. Ceramic power management offer enormous benefits to… more
Abstract:The new technology of AT-PCB's will significantly enhance multi-level anti-tamper protection of military electronics. The design is neither physically or functionally accessible to an adversary, yet it is flexible as to support protection for multiple devices or entire circuit board (rack mounted)… more
Abstract:The Phase I program will demonstrate, at hardware level, a prototype digital dc-dc converter that is subcompact and very high efficiency converter technology. It introduces advantages of very low weight/volume/component count, very low output ripple voltage, voltage isolation, negligible RFI/EMI… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is growing recognition that tumor vasculature plays an essential role in tumor growth. This has led to considerable interest in therapies that target tumor blood vessels. Our previous research has shown that low-i

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The high risk of infection posed by the use of paracorporeal and implanted mechanical circulatory support systems (MCSS) continues to create significant clinical complications. In this Phase I proposal, Ension will deve
lop and assess the feasibility of a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As an increasing number of DNA and RNA-oligonucleotide-based drugs are moving through clinical trials, the pharmaceutical industry is focusing on ways to bring these novel therapeutics to market at a competitive prices.
The primary goal of this project is to… more
Abstract:FBS, Inc. and The Pennsylvania State University propose the development of a novel ultrasonic structural health monitoring (SHM)/nondestructive testing (NDT) technology. The goal of our work is to bridge the gap from the short time transient ultrasonic guided wave analysis to the long time modal… more
Abstract:This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop new sustainable, biodegradable polyester materials that will replace many currently-used petrochemical polymer plastics. Polymer… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is directed towards adaptation of atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) to industrial scale production. ATRP is among the most powerful controlled/living radical polymerization techniques, and it is anticipated that many new products… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this proposed research effort is to develop an unconventional broadband infrared (IR) optical system for the advanced multi-functional, lower scattering loss, higher discrimination capability LADAR seeker and IR imager. The key innovation of the proposed system is… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this proposed research effort is to develop a novel laser eye protector (LEP) for visors, which can not only offer a high transmittance (over 85%) in the visible spectral range and a high blocking rate (OD 4) in the near IR spectral range but also be angular insensitive so… more
Abstract:Low visibility rotary aircraft decoys are needed to protect vehicles against heat seeking missile attacks without illuminating the target which exposes the aircraft to small arms fire and potentially compromising the mission. The novel approach to this challenge is to produce a decoy which emits… 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.
