ZONA proposes to… more
Abstract:Conventional air-vehicle designs are subjected to a well-set system/operational requirements. Scramjet-powered vehicle (SPV) design however enters an unprecedented level of multidisciplinary synergy to achieve its operational requirements. Through a convoluted and inverse design strategy for SPV,… more
Abstract:ZONA Technology, Inc. (ZONA) proposes a R&D effort to develop a Parameter-Varying Estimation (PVE) Toolbox that will rapidly evaluate and predict parameters that are required to certify an aircraft during flutter envelope and flying qualities programs. The work carried out successfully during the… more
Abstract:New approaches and techniques are required to effectively monitor and track radiological sources that are currently in use. We are proposing to develop a new class of monitoring and analysis methods that incorporate sensing information collected from zone-aware compact radiation detectors with… more
Abstract:In the production of ethanol from corn, the current process utilizes only the starch. Left unused is a significant amount of by-products, which also are produced during ethanol production. If these byproducts, which are rich in pentose and other sugars, could be made into a valuable product, the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The emergence of compact, high-quality digital X-ray imaging detectors, together with nearly exponential growth in computing power and corresponding price reductions, allows for the potential of dedicated 3D breast ima
ging. X-ray mammography (XRM) has… more
Abstract:A novel microbolometer focal plane array is proposed for use at 8-14 m having very low noise, no required thermoelectric stabilization, contrast over a very wide range of object temperature, and projected low cost in manufacture.
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A major concern regarding drugs in development is cardiac toxicity. Commonly, drugs in development can cause changes to cardiac contractility, the force with which the heart beats, and cardiac rhythmicity, resulting in
toxic side effects. The purpose of this… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Our long term aim is to develop a galactosylated and sialylated platelet product that can be stored in the cold in order to prolong shelf life and minimize risk of bacterial growth. Currently, platelets can only be stor
ed at room temperature as platelets stored… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project aims to develop a point-of-care assay for creatine kinase, an important toxicity biomarker, to screen for adverse drug reactions (ADRs) using whole blood. The assay will utilize bioluminescent resonance energy transfer (BRET)… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Bacterial and viral meningitis and encephalitis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in all societies of the world. The rapid progression of symptoms and potentially devastating effect of these diseases necessita

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.
