Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many peer-reviewed publications show that Bisphenol A (BPA)-based polycarbonate (PC) and all other commonly used hard and clear (HC) plastics (e.g., polyethylene terephthalate (PET), glycol-modified polyethylene terephthalate (PETG), and polystyrene (PS)) leach… more
Abstract:We aim to develop lightweight and rugged liquid crystal (LC)-based sensors suitable for integration into small unmanned vehicles, including hand-launched UAVs and throwable robots. For Phase I proof of concept, we propose to develop sensors that detect DMMP, H2S, NO2 and NH3. These gases include… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The Institute of Medicine (IOM) strongly recommends that all breast cancer patients who are ending active treatment have a survivorship plan. Such a plan should assist patients in moving back to their primary care physician (PCP), provide advice for reducing… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Management of Type 1 diabetes requires vigilant monitoring by patients who often encounter numerous barriers that can impede proper management. Barriers can include educational, psychosocial, and support issues. PolarisHealth Directions, a small business, and… more
Abstract:The objective of this research is to develop materials that replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low or no flame so that they don't present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient… more
Abstract:We propose an innovative Pedestrian Automotive System for Enforcement and Safety (PASES) that combines commercial-off-the-shelf video or camera components and state-of-the-art microwave(radar) systems with sophisticated software that will not only provide more effective enforcement
through effective… more
Abstract:Spectroscopic ellipsometry is recognized as the gold standard in noncontact characterization of the refractive index and thickness of a thin optical film or film stack on a substrate. However, it suffers from a number of shortcomings, perhaps the most important of which is the time required to… more
Abstract:We describe a revolutionary flight control actuator system for the full range of power from sub-kW to more than 30 kW. The system encompasses the key elements of the actuator, from motor to inverter energy source and control, and sensor signals distribution. Its key feature is the absence of a… more
Abstract:Material joining techniques (especially for dissimilar and novel material joining) have become increasingly important in industrial processes in a wide variety of areas. Major technical challenges are:(i) thermal expansion mismatch, (ii) reduced temperature and load ranges, and (iii) increased… more
Abstract:High energy and high power mid infrared laser is a critical component for next generation X-ray sources. However, current technologies are limited to efficiency, size and price. Breakthrough technologies are needed. PolarOnyx is to develop a 10 mJ 3 micron ultrafast fiber laser system (Sirius laser… more
Abstract:Title: Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-borne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives. The overall goal of this SBIR proposal is to
develop a portable system for stand-off detection of concealed explosives. The system will produce images positively identifying the presence… 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.
