Abstract:The US Department of Energy has a stated goal to increase the energy efficiency of turbines, and one well recognized method of achieving this is through the use of ceramic thermal barrier coatings (TBCs). However, state of the art zirconia-based TBCs have a temperature limit of about 1200oC, and new… more
Abstract:The proposed research will look at a combination of low-cost radar, stereo camera, and lidar data to generate a 3D model of the terrain ahead of a vehicle. The resulting terrain model will be automatically segmented, simplified and compressed to produce a reasonable description, which can interact… more
Abstract:Environmental Benefits: The proposed technology relates to Climate change and sustainable energy. Fatty acids are currently produced from palm oil, 80% of which comes from Malaysia and Indonesia. Both these countries have finite land available and often times rainforests are destroyed to make way… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to further develop ATX-Red, an in vivo imaging agent that becomes fluorescent in the presence of the enzyme autotaxin. Autotaxin and its product LPA are involved in numerous biological functions that generally involve cell movement… more
Abstract:There needs to better biomarkers of alcohol consumption and alcohol induced organ damage. PEth is a nonoxidative, long-lasting metabolite of ethanol consumption and alcohol related organ damage. PEth may also play a role in cell and organ damage. In this contract antibodies are made to PEth for… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The Air Force has identified a need for efficient, lightweight, millimeter-wave transmitter development that supports future generations of bandwidth efficient military satellite communications and communications links between Remotely Piloted Aircrafts (RPAs), satellites and terrestrial… more
Abstract:Todays warfighter and NETT Warrior are reliant on small battery operated devices for communication, information systems, enemy detection, and battlefield management. These devices must be recharged on a regular basis to ensure sustained operation. Current charging technologies require the device to… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: ImSAR LLC and Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) propose to leverage ImSAR's proven radar hardware and ground processing capabilities along with SSSC's expertise in radar signal processing, SAR-based GMTI, and automatic/assisted target recognition to advance the state of… more
Abstract:To reduce oxidative stress of patients with sickle cell anemia, the solicitation calls for harvesting hemoglobin-binding haptoglobin from the donated blood and intravenously injecting haptoglobin to the patient to capture and process free sickle cell hemoglobin in the blood. Polymorphic haptoglobins… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this translational SBIR program is to create a small, implantable system for recording myoelectric signals from residual and reinnervated muscles of individuals with forearm and other amputations. The signals will be wirelessly coupled to an external… more
Abstract:The use of Spread Spectrum Time Domain Reflectometry (SSTDR) that has already been proven in aerospace applications will be adapted and optimized for detection and location of wiring faults in shipboard systems.

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.
