Abstract:78242S Long-term and continuous monitoring of heavy metal contaminants in DOE tanks or DOE landfills has long been of great interest to DOE. Existing technologies either have the required detection sensitivity but are not field deployable, or are field deployable but lack the detection sensitivity… more
Abstract:75684S The evaluation of radionuclide and metal contaminants, found in the groundwater during the monitoring of DOE sites, is typically done off-site, using plasma mass spectroscopy or optical emission spectrometry. These analysis techniques are not suitable for automated field use because they… more
Abstract:Air particulate has been identified as a souce of primary and secondary health risks. Even small, short-term increases in the amount of air particulte contamination in the atmosphere can produce significant increases in both mortality and morbidity from respiratory and cardiovasulare diseases.

Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Measurements of the composition of body fluids (urine, blood, plasma) are among the most important tools for disease detection and control. One class of measurement, less routinely applied but of increasing importance, is determination of trace element… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bioessential metals operate at a delicate interface in biological systems between their essential functions and the destructive havoc they cause when they escape their normal control mechanisms. This is especially true for the so-called redox metals (Iron, Copper… more
Abstract:Directionally solidified nickel superalloys are commonly used in turbine blades for high temperature aircraft and space propulsion engines and land-based, high-efficiency power generating plants. The surfaces of these parts are mechanically treated to provide compressive residual stress for… more
Abstract:Directionally solidified nickel superalloys are commonly used in turbine blades for high temperature aircraft and space propulsion engines and land-based, high-efficiency power generating plants. The casting of these parts does not always assure perfect crystal grain orientation which is critical… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The high cost ($0.8 - $1.7 billion) and long time frames (about 13 years) required to introduce new drugs to the market contributes substantially to spiraling health care costs and diseases persisting without effective cures. A major factor is the high attrition… more
Abstract:The goal of this project is to create bioinformatics software that will rapidly and accurately search and mine proteomics-related information from multiple databases and relate the expression of proteins to upstream or downstream events. The proposed product will link upstream and downstream data to… more
Abstract:The widespread use of GPS-guided ordinance (e.g. JDAM) requires mission planning tools to detect space weather events that might adversely affect GPS targeting accuracy, navigation and HF communications. Essentially, lack of real time knowledge of space-weather induced electromagnetic disturbances… more
Abstract:DoD requires an affordable tactical weather measurement solution capable of delivering surface and near-surface meteorological data, especially wind beyond treetop levels, from any location on earth. This proposal describes a highly portable, extremely rugged approach for real time meteorological… more
Abstract:The Navy's need for innovative sensors and measurement techniques to obtain Meteorological and Oceanographic (METOC) variables exists in an environment of strongly interdependent operational, tactical, modeling and forecast requirements, particularly as applied to the operationally critical lower… more
Abstract:The sophistication of weapons and the advances in protective armor in recent years has resulted in a change in typical injuries in combat situations. More and more soldiers sustain and survive catastrophic injuries to their extremities. Regional anesthesia is highly valuable in this context,… more
Abstract:79758B Safety concerns over the susceptibility of large Li-ion cells to thermal runaway during overcharge are one of the problems preventing the commercialization of these cells. This problem will be addressed by developing new materials that will be substituted for the cell component believed to… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will advance an efficient and high energy density Lithium/(CF)x battery, using LithyleneT technology, for off-board sensors by developing a pressure tolerant cell design. Specifically the project advances lithium carbon monofluoride batteries… more
Abstract:The innovation (AGATE, for Autonomous Go And Touch Exploration) will enable single-sol "go and touch" instrument placement from distances of up to five meters for scientific exploration rovers. It will reduce the number of sols required to examine objects of scientific interest, while increasing the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This STTR proposal describes collaborative research between Zdye LLC and Montana State University (MSU) to synthesize and demonstrate innovative ultrasensitive, fluorescent dyes for multicolor (multiplex) detection in proteomics. The resulting "Zdyes" are… more
Abstract:The projected expansion of the corn processing industry over the next decade will likely result in severe oversupply conditions for the related animal feed co-product markets. Today, the proteins of processed corn are sold either into ruminant feed markets that place little value on amino acid… more
Abstract:Zel Technologies proposes an important subset of the full capabilities requested in this topic. We offer to augment Joint Intelligence Preparation of the Battlespace (JIPB) tools, Automated Assistance to IPB (A2IPB) and Intelligence Preparation of the Information Battlespace (IPIB), with a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The US is experiencing an epidemic rise in obesity and related co-morbidities such as type II diabetes. Epidemiological studies demonstrate that these co-morbidities are specifically correlated with visceral (intra-abdominal) fat deposition. To elucidate this… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this research is to develop an innovative portable human / computer interface system for performance monitoring / performance prediction based on eye movement. The system will be capable of capturing gaze, pupil, and saccadic movements in each eye individually,… more
Abstract:ZIN Technologies in collaboration with the Cleveland Clinic Foundation will use their combined experience and research and development expertise to develop a new compact ambulatory biometric data system for space and commercial terrestrial use. This design will improve on the existing design… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our phase I work addressed one of the major current trends in HPLC - the development of materials for improved chiral chromatography. In response, we prepared two new classes of chiral stationary phases (CSPs). We prepared 10 different examples of the class… more
Abstract:In this Phase I SBIR proposal, Ziva proposes to investigate the feasibility of developing an optical connector between a board and a backplane which not only provides optical regeneration but is alignment tolerant, scalable in bandwidth to >40Gbps, operates with very low interchannel crosstalk,… more
Abstract:ZnO has many inherent advantages over current materials used to fabricate UV LEDs and lasers. It is a highly efficient light emitter due to the excitonic nature of the emission. The recent development of p-type doping enables many devices to be fabricated based on ZnO. The availability of… 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.
