Abstract:Sensor management of dispersed and disparate EO/IR sensors presents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. Scientific Systems Company, Inc. of Woburn MA and its subcontractor, Lockheed Martin MS2 Tactical Systems (LMTS) of Eagan MN, propose a foundational, control-theoretic approach to such… more
Abstract:The objective of this project is to develop a method(s) for detecting, segmenting, and identifying man made objects from background terrain from sensor fused data using Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs). Phase I will develop proof-of-concept implementation and demonstrate the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this project is to develop a new highly sensitive and cost effective Reverse Transcription Quantitative Bioluminescence Assay (RT-qBLA) for high-throughput detection and quantification of large (mRNA) and small (microRNA) RNAs in diverse biological… more
Abstract:U.S. agricultural producers increasing subsidize raw product or commmodity production with off-farm jobs(90 percent of producers surveyed in Wisconsin) or federal subsidies, and marketing challenges are formidable for individual producers who attempt to add value to production and increase margins… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The incidence of congestive heart failure (CHF) is increasing worldwide with over one million new cases diagnosed annually. Over the past 30 years, counterpulsation with an intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) has been widely and successfully used as a short-term… more
Abstract:Before fuel cells will be adopted by the automotive market, the cost of proton exchange membrane (PEM) materials must be reduced through improved manufacturing quality control and quality assurance. In particular, tools and standard protocols are needed to measure keystone membrane properties: … more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Scripps has developed a proprietary technology for measuring percent hemoglobin A1c (A1c) that is uniquely suited for the development of simple, low cost test systems. Scripps? goal, through low cost systems, is to make testing more widespread in developed… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop an innovative modular oxygen enrichment system. It is accepted that the reduction of cycle time can lead to a concurrent decrease in the mass of a sorptive separation system. However, ultra-rapid-cycle systems invariably… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project investigates the feasibility of modifying three laboratory instruments for the dynamic analysis of ultra-rapid cycle (URC) sorptive processes. Current approaches have functional and/or software characteristics that limit their performance in… more
Abstract:New requirements for modern gun systems have greatly increased the propellant flame temperature and reactivity of the combustion products. As a result, thermochemical erosion can greatly reduced the service life of the gun tubes in these systems. Coatings, liners, additives, and deterred… more
Abstract:The demand for higher performance rocket motors at a reduced cost requires continuous improvements in understanding and controlling propellant combustion. Numerous examples are available where seemingly minor modifications and improvements to existing solid rocket systems have caused previously… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to determine the feasibility of developing a hydrodynamic combustion stability analysis design tool for rockets, gas turbines, and large engines. As combustors are run at leaner mixture ratios to avoid NOx pollutant issues, vortex… more
Abstract:A modeling and experimental program is proposed with the goal of reducing the mean size of metal oxide droplets in the exhaust of solid propellant rocket motors (SRMs). The proposed effort looks at all aspects of metal combustion and discrete phase dynamics which occur in SRMs and offers approaches… more
Abstract:Present sonobuoys allow for the selection of functions such as RF Channel, Depth, etc. by use of a single selector button and LED display along with a second button used for verification located on the side of the sonobuoy. Selection or verification requires access to the buttons and cannot be… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our objective is to develop a new biomaterial, a salmon-derived fibrin gel, which will bridge injured CMS tissue, support and promote axonal sprouting and growth, and deliver neurotrophic factors and cells.

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.
