Abstract:The goal is to develop a specific software and hardware system that will integrate with current video Laparoscopic surgical devices and provide for improved recognition and identification of relevant anatomical structures. In Phase I, we will characterize the color properties of key anatomical… more
Abstract:The goal is to develop a software product which can indicate the onset of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) in computer keyboard operators. This software will apply pattern analysis methods to keystroke time series data acquired during normal typing at a microcomputer keyboard. The specific Phase I… more
Abstract:The goal is to develop an improved vaginal speculum that will incorporate a magnifying lens permitting a more detailed inspection of the cervix during routine pelvic exams. This improved speculum will potentially have a significant impact on reducing the number of false negative cervical cancer… more
Abstract:The goal of this research project is to explore the feasibility of developing a powerful new visible light imaging array for use in a camera system and potentially applicable to a variety of medical and biotechnology uses. This innovative imaging technology involves use of Visible Light Photon… more
Abstract:The ultimate goal is to develop and commercialize a functional, low-cost system for machine reading and recognition of chemical structure diagrams. The specific Phase I goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing such a system by using a knowledge-based approach which provides a logical… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS TO DEVELOP A NEW PROSTHESIS FOR THE REPLACEMENT OF VESSELS SMALLER THAN 6 MM DIAMETER. THE PROSTHESIS EMPLOYS A POLYURETHANE FIBRIL MICROPOROUS TEXTURED SURFACE AT THE BLOOD INTERFACE DESIGNED TO GENERATE A PSEUDONEOINTIMA (PNI) FROM BLOOD FLOWING OVER THE SURFACE.… more
Abstract:THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROGRAM IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW PROSTHESIS FOR THE TREATMENT OF TOTAL URINARY INCONTINENCE. THE PROSTHESIS IS MAGNETICALLY OPERATED WITH AN EXTERNALLY WORN PERMANENT MAGNET. THE MAGNET COMPRESSES AN IMPLANTED METAL BELLOWS, WHICH PRESSURIZES A URETHRAL CUFF TO STOP THEFLOW… more
Abstract:The purpose is the development of an improved dental floss incorporating a medicated lubricant for the prevention of gingivitis and other periodontal diseases. Gingivitis is largely caused by bacterial activity. Efforts to control intraoral flora by the use of antimicrobial agents, particularly… more
Abstract:We will develop methods that cause the de novo synthesis of biologically active allelochemicals by encrusting marine organisms. We will test these "tag metabolites" (=allelochemicals) for antitumor activity. These methods are designed to determine the potential for "tag metabolite" production within… more
Abstract:The study addresses the need for better physician training by providing specific accurate clinical descriptions of pigmented lesions including malignant melanoma. In Phase I, we will develop clinical algorithms to precisely describe malignant melanoma. In this phase, our aims include 1) location of… more
Abstract:A PROTOTYPE OF A NEW TYPE OF CAMERA WILL BE CONSTRUCTED FOR USE IN COMPUTER-BASED LOW-VISION AIDS. THE CAMERA WILL BE CAPABLE OF CLEARLY IMAGING BOOKS AND CURVED OBJECTS WITH NO PATIENT ADJUSTMENT REQUIRED FOR FOCUS, ILLUMINATION, OR CONTRAST. IMAGES WILL BE DIGITALLY ENHANCED IN BOTH LOW RESOLUTION… more
Abstract:WIZDOM SYSTEMS, INC., A PIONEER IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF CIE/CIM SOFTWARE AND INTEGRATED METHODOLOGIES, PROPOSES FOR PHASE I TO DETERMINE SOFTWARE DESIGN REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR WIZARD, A SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT FOR INTEGRATED DESIGN AND MANUFACTURABILITY ANALYSIS (IDMA). WHEN COMPLETE, THE… more
Abstract:THIS RESEARCH DEVELOPS A FRAMEWORK FOR IDENTIFYING THE CRITICAL STRUCTURAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS AFFECTING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF CALS TECHNOLOGIES AT SPOS AND ALCS. IT COMBINES A BOTTOM-UP VIEW OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS AFFECTING WORK GROUPS' ACCEPTANCE OR REJECTION OF THOSE TECHNOLOGIES WITH… more
Abstract:TELEPHONE NUMBER: (313) 995-2780 AWARDEE NUMBER: 1 R43 GM49582-01 We will manufacture improved affinity or activated membranes. These microporous membranes will be made by the phase inversion process from a structural plastic material which also has aldehyde functionality. This material, to be… more
Abstract:SMOKING IS THE LEADING PREVENTABLE CAUSE OF DEATH IN THE UNITED STATES. IT IS A MAJOR CAUSE OF CANCER AND OTHER SERIOUS DISEASE, AND IS BY FAR THE LEADING CAUSE OF LUNG CANCER. THE STUDY WILL TEST A STATE-OF-THE-ART CORPORATE SMOKING CESSATION CLINIC SUPPLEMENTED BY EITHER ACTIVE OR PLACEBO NICOTINE… more
Abstract:Here we propose the development of a "Two-Color" Integrated Infrared Sensor that will have Military applications in the areas of Surveillance, Target Detection, Acquisition and Tracking, Non-Cooperative Target Recognition, Missle Guidance, Thermal Imaging, Navigational Aids, Night Vision, and Sensor… 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.
