Abstract:Robust and reliable trace-gas analyzers (e.g., for isotopic carbon, methane, nitroxide, ammonia, etc.), suitable for long-term measurements, are not commercially available. Such analyzers are needed to achieve a better understanding of the global budget of these trace gases and… more
Abstract:This project will demonstrate 3D sensor capability to identify and track maritime targets, collect target characteristics that enable quick development of identification (ID) templates for ID and tracking of new targets, apply the technology to currently deployed naval passive… more
Abstract:Individuals with cognitive disabilities represent one of the fastest growing disability groups in the U. S. The potential for computer technology to increase social integration for this population is well-documented. However, cognitive and financial barriers frequently… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) refers to the enlargement of the prostate gland, which occurs in 50% of 60-year old men with increasing incidence with age. This unchecked growth is most likely caused by dihydrotestosterone (DHT), and it… more
Abstract:… As more proteins are identified from the genome-sequencing projects, there is an increasing need for reliable and cost efficient means for expression and purification of proteins of academic and clinical importance. LifeSensors has developed a novel SUMO-fusion system to… more
Abstract:… yield of expressed proteins because the fusion is cleaved by the host enzymes and/or the tag does not have sufficient chaperoning effects. Although intact SUMO fusion system can significantly improve production of recombinant proteins in E. coli, it is not applicable to… more

Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is designed to develop and optimize a prototype environmentally friendly isocyanate-free solvent-free UV curable hybrid resin system demonstrated in EPA SBIR Phase I research to have properties suitable for commercial… more
Abstract:The purpose of this NASA SBIR Phase I proposal is to develop a novel type of high resolving power diffraction gratings based on volume Bragg gratings technology. The key innovation to be used for creation of these gratings is the patented technology on production of high… more
Abstract:One of the most efficient ways to create narrow band filter is the use of reflective Bragg gratings or which allow increasing of efficiency and decreasing of weight compare to conventional technologies. OptiGrate have proved the concept of high efficiency narrow-band mirrors in… more
Abstract:…. Of particular interest is defense against worms, a highly problematic and dangerous threat because they self propagate and can rapidly debilitate a high-speed network. This project will design a high accuracy Intrusion Detection (ID) system that can scale to… more
Abstract:Over the past three years, Lightning Packs LLC has invented, developed, tested, and patented the innovative Suspended-load Backpack which extracts mechanical energy from the vertical movement of carried loads and converts it to unprecedented levels of electricity during normal… more
Abstract:Humans have become increasingly dependent on technology, particularly electronic devices. In the past decade, electronic devices have become more mobile, enabling people to use medical devices, cellular/satellite phones, laptop computers, and GPS as they move around cities or in… more
Abstract:The purpose of this SBIR is to enable use of lightweight photovoltaic (PV) arrays and associated power conditioning and distribution systems on high altitude airships (HAAs) intended for station keeping over long time periods in the stratosphere, and so mitigate risks to the HAA… more
Abstract:Rapid growth in the markets for dual use IR systems is being hindered by the high cost of the needed optical components. Therefore there is a significant demand for lower cost processes for making these components. To that end, LightPath Technologies, Inc. has recently… more
Abstract:There is a need for lightweight high-density (4000+ lines/mm) novel diffraction grating elements in modern telescopes to advance EUV and X-ray astrophysics. Current grating technologies (ruling and holographic beam interference) do not provide optimal solution for all grating… more
Abstract:LightSpin Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop an innovative solid-state microchannel plate (SSMCP) detector for the focal plane of LIBS instruments. It is a true solid-state replacement for vacuum microchannel plate technologies such as those used in intensified CCDs, and… more
Abstract:LightWorks is fully involved in the next generation kill vehicle telescope design optimization for manufacturability. We understand the future goals of a modular, scalable, low-cost Kill Vehicle, capable of multiple missions, starting from a basic design. We are excited to be… 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.
