Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cell Cures' technology utilizes easily isolated and well characterized adult human skeletal muscle stem cells (satellite cells or myoblasts). These striated muscle progenitor cells provide an expandable source of prolif
erating cells which have already been… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a unique style of communication that has demonstrated success with very resistant clients, such as those recovering from drug and alcohol addiction. A growing number of experienced trai
ners in MI now provide training workshops… more
Abstract:The founders of CES have identified three shortcomings of the proposed Integrated Fight Through Power (IFTP) system. The system's lack of galvanic isolation will lead to ship-wide ground fault problems. The system's inability to incorporate alternative power sources (fuel cells or energy storage… more
Abstract:Dust loadings at or above the minimum explosive concentration (MEC) can lead to catastrophic
loss of life and destruction of property. This proposal is to initiate the development of a mass
loading monitor (MLM) that will provide a warning signal when the MEC is approached. The
proposed MLM will… more
Abstract:We propose to use a Holographic Stokese-Meter (HSM) integrated with a conventional focal plane array (FPA) to develop an eye-safe, polarimetric ladar (PLADAR). The HSM is based on angularly-multiplexed volume holographic gratings, first demonstrated by our company, DOT. Incoming optical signal is… more
Abstract:Digital Signal Corporation (DSC) will adapt its current operational Bio-LIDAR 3D face imaging system to SOCOM's application set and 100 Meter range requirements. The Bio-LIDAR is a highly evolved extension of an industrial metrology lidar that produces eye-safe precision 3D measurements at 60 meters… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obtaining complete genome DNA sequences of organisms from bacteria to man is a hallmark achievement of 20th century science and has had a huge impact on the biological sciences as well as the practice of medicine. Sequ
ence assembly software played a critical… more
Abstract:Energy Research Company (ERCo) and the University of Texas, Dallas (UTD) propose the development of a novel and highly sensitive eye-safe laser-based standoff sensor technology for detecting films and residues of explosive materials. This sensor detects improvised explosive devices (IEDs), car bombs… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate result of the proposed approach will be treatment for rheumatoid arthritis and possibly other diseases caused by the hyperactivity of TNF-a. The approach is to manipulate the alternative splicing pathways o
f the TNF-a receptors (TNFR) pre- mRNA… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): One of the most challenging problems in clinical Dentistry is the loss of alveolar bone. The primary causes of alveolar bone loss are periodontitis and tooth loss. There is also substantial evidence suggesting that ther
e is a link between alveolar bone loss and… more
Abstract:The Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) project will develop environmentally friendly composite panels from recycled aluminum cans for beams, frame, roof sections, and floor sections in low cost construction industries. The specific objectives include: specific construction… more
Abstract:The proposed STTR will develop a shock-hardened, autonomous, miniature, wireless multi-channel data acquisition system that is installed in payloads launched from various platforms. The system will be designed to survive impact loads at least ten times higher than those specified in the program… more
Abstract:A sensor is proposed that will allow the robotic system to "see" the frame mounting flange through the inlet duct wall. The ability to directly perceive the location of the flange circumvents the stackup of a number of metrology errors, alleviating the problem of holes in violation of edge margin… more
Abstract:DNA aptamers are promising highly-specific, environmentally-stable threat-detecting molecules. Unfortunately, the current method for generating these materials yields a product frought with a high concentration of ballast aptamers. A laborious, yet automated process is required to isolate 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.
