Abstract:This project consists of developing a Vibrating Sample Holder (VSH) for planetary X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) instruments. The principle of this novel sample handling technique relies on vibrations generated in a sample holder to create movements in the powdered sample. The major benefit over… more
Abstract:76063S International initiatives are underway to reduce greenhouse gases in the air. The sequestration of carbon in agricultural soils is a candidate technology for achieving this reduction; however, more rapid and less expensive methods of measuring soil carbon are needed. This project will… more
Abstract:The Air Force has requested research to identify and document an innovative tool-based concept, including alternative solutions evaluated for re-creating aircraft replacement part designs. The recommended solution will be documented along with the benefits and metrics used. The solution must solve… more
Abstract:The overall objective of this proposal is to characterize the molecular mechanism by which variable frequency microwave technology (VFM) inactivates bacterial spores. The long-term practical goal is to produce a device capable of eliminating contamination by microbial/viral/biological based… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): For complex protein mixtures, including cell lysates and serum, containing hundreds and even thousands of proteins, 2-D gel-electrophoresis separation (2D-PAGE) is the standard method used to separate and isolate individual proteins for analysis. In addition to… more
Abstract:Communications applications have utilized the intrinsic broadband characteristics of analog fiber optic links for myriad purposes. Today's transmitter technology of choice for these broadband applications is an InP-based electro-absorption modulator (EAM), because of its record levels of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this application is the development of an ultrahigh sensitivity microarray platform for the simultaneous detection of many NIAID category A-C pathogens or pathogen byproducts. The application centers on the integration of two technologies; the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The concept of islet allotransplantation as a treatment for Type I Diabetes has been demonstrated as feasible by the pioneering work done in Edmonton, Miami, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and other sites during the last five years. However, there still exists a… more
Abstract:A new thruster has been conceived and tested that is based on a high power helicon (HPH) plasma wave. In this new method of propulsion, an antenna generates and propagates a helicon wave in a plasma providing a non-thermal, wave-based mechanism for the subsequent acceleration of the plasma ions to… more
Abstract:75650S For the plasma jet liner approach to magnetized target fusion, a plasma accelerator is required that is capable of launching a plasma jet with a mass of 0.2 mg to 0.4 mg and a diameter no larger than about 20 cm. In addition, the accelerator must be capable of attaining plasma/plasmoid… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Leishmania are typanosomatid protozoans that are transmitted by phlebotomine sand flies causing leishmaniasis. Leishmaniasis affects 12 million people in 88 countries with an estimated 350 million people that are at risk of infection by the different species of… more
Abstract:In this Phase I SBIR project, Nanotherapeutics proposes to utilize its proprietary particle delivery systems to develop an injectable bone paste formulation incorporating an anti-microbial (PHMB) as a bone graft substitute. A solution-based system, GraftonT (Osteotech) and, recently, a dry… more
Abstract:Explosively Formed Penetrators (EFPs) are an important component of today's military. They are capable of penetrating many inches (even feet) of armor. Needless to say, high performance is important and continued improvement requires materials that can perform under severe conditions. Budget and… more
Abstract:Although visual obscurants ("smoke screens") have a long history on the battlefield, use of infrared obscurants (IROs) is comparatively new. IROs are required when the enemy possesses IR based equipment (e.g., thermal sights and heat seeking missiles). Because recent developments have greatly… more
Abstract:The overall goal of the program is to demonstrate optic flow for aggressive, obstacle-avoiding flight, and to develop a vehicle that incorporates the necessary flight capabilities, guidance and control, and hardware for swallow-like flight and landing. The NTC/MIT autonomous helicopter (AHMMH-1)… more
Abstract:Nascent Technology, MIT, and BAE Systems propose to create an embedded system, suitable for installation in low- and medium-cost UAVs, that performs cooperative decision and control in practical communication environments. This effort will extend existing decentralized task assignment tools, test… more
Abstract:79399S The world is becoming increasingly concerned about global warming and the emission of greenhouse gases such as CO2. Therefore, the capture and permanent sequestration of CO2 has become a major goal related to future energy development and use. This project will develop technology for… more
Abstract:Current communications relay satellite systems do not meet validated needs for global ocean observing system data collections. A complete system architecture, including the network for providing access between the data providers and users, and the system for managing the data generated in both… 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.
