Abstract:73155-Superconducting particle accelerators require high power radio frequency (RF) couplers, which have high capital and operational costs. The operational costs include power dissipation at cryogenic temperatures and operational down time. New coupler designs are needed that reduce these costs… more
Abstract:The IDS/IDP market will gain considerable traction as more organizations protect each application server instead of relying on network security. Proactive security as embodied in intrusion prevention will take a larger share of the market than reactive security as represented by intrusion detection.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) causes a persistent infection in most humans exposed to the virus. HCV infection in time can lead to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Although the annual number of newly infected patients has dropped significantly over the past… more
Abstract:Aviation Safety Facilitators Corp (ASF) will further the scientific results of a prior PhaseI SBIR using data accumulated from November 2002 to date. Said data includes information from Shock & Vibration Mil Std 810 enviromental test. Altitude & Temperature cycling ranges of -5o to+60C at various… more
Abstract:Soldiers have been called upon to function in progressively more complex and hostile environments resulting, in many cases, in unnecessary loss of lives. While dismounted urban operations have incorporated many new technologies, the need to collect, collate, and convey information effectively in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by investigator): Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is the leading cause of chronic liver diseases such as cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, and liver transplantation worldwide. The co-infection of HCV with other viruses (e.g. HIV) is becoming greater concern due to difficulties in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): With a daily production of 400 to 2500 milligrams of protein per egg, the chicken ovomucoid and ovalbumin gene loci have the potential to synthesize large amounts of biopharmaceutical proteins in transgenic hens. This phase II SBIR project will test the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project is focused on the development of a novel transgenic avian production platform that will provide human therapeutics in a rapid, cost-effective fashion. Specifically, we intend to create transgenic Japanese quail (Coturnix Coturnix sp. japonica) that… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
This SBIR project describes a novel method to create transgenic poultry that will produce biopharmaceutical proteins in their eggs. Poultry, including chickens and quail, are able to produce large amounts of protein in their eggs at relatively low cost. We… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Although the genetic cause of cystic fibrosis (CF), a lethal autosomal disorder, has been known for over a decade, an effective therapeutic method is still lacking. Pulmonary disease remains the major cause of morbidity and mortality in CF. The CF lung is marked… more
Abstract:Avtec proposes a technique that uses the structure of tactical communications systems to provide a reliable and precise relative time and range synchronization between the participating platforms. This technique uses an unbiased balanced timing messaging system to determine the clock offsets and… more
Abstract:For a distributed aperture sensor, especially at infrared and optical wavelengths, the relative position of the aperture components must be known and controlled precisely. When the aperture components are on separate independent spacecraft, determining the relative range and bearing is the challenge… more
Abstract:In Phase II, we plan to scale up our Phase I approach and demonstrate multi color focal plane arrays (FPAs) with minimized spatial crosstalk between adjacent unit cells, minimized spectral crosstalk between detectors in the different spectral bands along with high quantum efficiency and R0A… more
Abstract:In Phase II, we plan to validate our SWIR technology the feasibility of which was demonstrated in Phase I.

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.
