Optimized multifunctional performance of these newly developed meta-materials includes enhanced mechanical, acoustic… more
Abstract:A bi-stable meta-material which rejects high amplitude harmful sound but transfers sound levels needed for the situation awareness is proposed. A threshold intensity of the sound is determined by the material design and is set to 90 dBA all signals exceeding this level will be attenuated at least… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is aimed at developing an integrated system to stabilize a conventional high-end, inverted optical microscope to the precision required to routinely achieve the imaging power of emerging super-resolution (SR) microscopy techniques. These… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) phase I aims to demonstrate the feasibility of constructing a novel machine for manufacturing low-cost glass-to-metal seals for insulating window glazing. Applications include vacuum glazing which insulates as well as a wall (R11 to R20), representing a… more
Abstract:Vacuum glazing requires a scratch-resistant Low-E coating. Microscopic pane spacers are required to prevent the two panes from touching under external pressure, but create high contact stresses which can scratch glass and existing Low-E coatings during pane movement with temperature change. Hard… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to investigate the feasibility of new game-based software in which youth play the roles of adult professionals. This approach has demonstrated the potential for raising knowledge of and interest in civics and the local community for… more
Abstract:Computation of the radiative transfer model for a hyperspectral sounder with thousands of spectral channels is very time-consuming. Consequently, operational data assimilation systems can assimilate only a few hundred channels. The radiative transfer model is very suitable for GPU implementation to… more
Abstract:Purpose: Prior research demonstrates that younger students who are low- or non-verbal often have difficulty independently practicing skills that provide a foundation for early literacy. The proposed product will provide support to students who are low- or non-verbal to independently practice phonics… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Estrogen receptor a (ERa) is the major therapeutic target for breast cancer, and ERa binding at target genes in breast cancer cells is guided by DNA binding pioneer factor proteins such as FoxA1. Although tamoxifen is asuccessful therapeutic for suppressing… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A critical unmet need in implementing personalized medicine is the ability to sort through the millions of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) present in the human genome and to pinpoint which of these DNA variations are causative in disease. A key… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Harmful metals not readily detoxified naturally are discharged from numerous industrial activities and pose lasting environmental hazards requiring expensive remediation efforts. This project targets profitable dilute metal removal and reclamation. Creating an… more
Abstract:Copper is a commodity essential to modern society and its production is very energy intensive. Half of U.S. copper consumption goes to electrical, heating, and plumbing infrastructure in building construction and energy use for copper production topped 43 trillion BTUs in the early 1990s. Currently… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this SBIR Phase I proposal is to establish the measurement reliability and the clinical feasibility of the RGR-GAIT instrumented gait analysis system. Gait dysfunction can dramatically affect a person's ability to perform activities of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Patient socket performance is a critical barrier to progress in rehabilitation, the most common source of patient dissatisfaction and part of a growing medical and socioeconomic problem. Poor socket performance is a greatly uncharacterized multi-factorial… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prosthetics Our goal is to create a transtibial prosthesis in a kit that can be inexpensively manufactured using modern technology and advanced polymer materials. This system will be immediately fit on the residual limb and aligned for optimal gait without… more
Abstract:Obesity is a growing epidemic that continues to threaten the health of both adults and children around the world. Additionally, challenging economic times and increasing food costs puts pressure on consumers to purchase lower priced meals. While there are many ingredients available that can lower… more
Abstract:USDA secretary, Tom Vilsack recently urged the Forest Service to "develop new markets" for forest by-products, which encourage healthy timber management. Small-diameter round timber is an abundant by-product of healthy timber management and could serve emerging green commercial markets if… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to analyze existing patent-pending nonpneumatic tires ("NPTs") to determine which designs and materials are best scalable across the full suite of the Family of Special Operations Vehicles Program. Resilient Technologies has produced functional NPT… more
Abstract:The Modulated Rotor Tip Light (MRTL) system provides greatly enhanced visibility because blade tip light paths appear very large, intensity and narrow field of view LED optics are used and lateral separation between red and green lights can be as much as five times larger than the fuselage width.… more
Abstract:The emergence of new generations of munitions and others military systems has created demand for adaptable high energy density power sources.

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.
