Abstract:Agricultural activities produce large quantities of animal wastes in the form of manures. Currently, the accumulation of manures from animal husbandry operations is a serious threat to water supplies and challenges the capacity of existing landfills. However, this potential problem also represents… more
Abstract:In this project, the development of a novel panoramic, stereoscopic video system was proposed. The proposed system, which contains no moving parts, uses three-fixed position cameras equipped with NASA's Panoramic Refracting Optic (PRO) to generate stereoscopic images over a hemispherical work area.… more
Abstract:This project addresses two vital problems for long-term space travel activities: radiation shielding and hydrogen storage for power and propulsion. While both problems have been studied for many years, there is currently no satisfactory technology for providing adequate non-parasitic shielding. … more
Abstract:A number of high-energy laser weapons currently under development by and for the U.S. military will provide our armed forces with capabilities that are unmatched by conventional armaments. Laser weapons allow targets to be destroyed from remote locations without the delays associated with the… more
Abstract:The innovation proposed is a flight-worthy optical sensor that will monitor propulsion system performance and health characteristics, including identifying the onset of combustion instability, in air-breathing engines such as turbojets and ramjets. It is an innovation for three reasons: 1) the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I research project's objectives are to build and validate an artificial star simulation application for the study of astronomical objects, and to assess its commercial potential for the professional and serious amateur astronomer communities. The… more
Abstract:RNA-protein interactions play critical roles in cellular regulatory processes and in the life cycles of many pathogenic viruses including HIV, hepatitis C, SARS, and West Nile virus, and thus represent attractive targets for therapeutics. We have developed novel cell-based assays to identify drugs… more
Abstract:Landing Gear components (LG) are protected from in-service wear by application of hard Chromium (Cr). The porosity and columnar structure of the currently utilized galvanic Cr coatings allow corrosive media to penetrate through dramatically decreasing the life span of the component. For the… more
Abstract:Majority of Aircraft Components (AC) is protected from corrosion by application of galvanic Cadmium (Cd). In some instances, mostly for the non-line-of-site configurations, Cd is replaced by Aluminum (Al) which is applied by Ion Vapor Deposition (IVD). The porosity and columnar structure of the… more
Abstract:Carbon fiber-based brakes are made out of so-called carbon-carbon composite material (CC) that consists of two components: weaved carbon cloth and solid carbon matrix. The limitations of oxidation protection systems for CC, especially in long duration, cyclic and/or reusable applications, have made… more
Abstract:Steel bearings are being used on numerous weapon systems currently employed by many organizations of the Department of Defense including the Air Force. Due to continuous exposure to cruel weather environments, corrosion and lack of maintenance, bearings endure pre-mature failures. Composite… more
Abstract:Numerous power sources are currently in use by the US military. Over 80% of the logistics re-supply is battlefield fuel. Diesel generators have been traditionally employed for both stationary and portable power units. Where weight and volume are presently a major concern the military is seeking to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A system for speech reception training configured around a small portable computer (laptop or notebook computer) will be developed. The system can be used for auditory training without visual cues, as well as for speech reading training with or without auditory… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims at developing video mining techniques for automatically generating customer behavior statistics to help retail enterprises. These statistics can be very valuable for supporting critical decisions in merchandising, in-store… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and is the number one cause of adult disability. It is estimated that this clinical condition results in a cost of $30-40 billion in the U.S alone. While a large number of therapeutic agents have… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
This project is to develop an instrument to measure the polarization of a hyperpolarized noble gas, Helium- 3 and Xenon-129, for enhanced lung MRIs in a clinical environment. It is essential to have some means of measuring polarization at various stages in the… 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.
