Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The threat of exposure to ionizing radiation from a nuclear reactor accident, nuclear attack, or deliberate terrorist actions including the detonation of dirty bombs is a significant public healh concern. The lung is particularly susceptible to ionizing… more
Abstract:This Phase II proposal addresses a current need relevant to the US military: a lightweight and durable electromagnetic interference (EMI) and radio frequency interference (RFI) shielding fabric, with EMI/RFI shielding across a wide frequency range. To address this statement of need, a scale-up… more
Abstract:The company is commercializing a mobile social computing system named Tiramisu (“pick me up” in Italian) that is intended to connect riders and transit service providers. It supports a variety of collaboration mechanisms designed to improve the experience of riders in a transit service and… more
Abstract:In this SBIR Phase II research, we propose to i) improve robustness and efficiency of the algorithms and techniques, which we developed in Phase I for wall parameter estimation, detection of metallic-backed walls, and characterization and near real-time imaging of wall"s interior structure, ii)… more
Abstract:We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for tunnels, urban"canyons", inside buildings and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system includes mobile Sensor Nodes (mobile robots in our Phase I) that wirelessly supply compressed… more
Abstract:Although global pose is essential for success in certain vehicle missions and tasks, when GPS is denied there is no single technology (source) that can robustly estimate global pose without suffering from one or more failure modes. We propose to design an architecture that provides robustness by… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a capability to provide integrated acceleration, vibration, and shock testing using a state-of-the-art centrifuge, allowing for the test of synergistic effects of these combined environments. By installing a shaker table on the centrifuge, the test setup can provide both… more
Abstract:In this phase I proposal we propose development studies for a vaccine targeting diseases caused by infection with Streptococcus pyogenes. This vaccine utilizes a recombinant fusion protein comprising of SpeA, a secreted toxin, and SpeB, a surface bound and secreted cysteine protease. Combination of… more
Abstract:We propose a comprehensive software tool called ModelTime(TM)for the design, analysis and construction of multi-core software for distributed real-time systems using a model-based design methodology. ModelTime will use UML-like diagrams to capture networked multi-core platforms, software components… more
Abstract:Overwhelming heat and clocking considerations have led to the accelerating rise of multicore processors. The number of cores per chip is expected to increase rapidly in coming years. In fact, chips with 100 cores and prototypes with 128 cores are already available. As the number of cores increases… 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.
