Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Treatment of metastatic tumors is a major health challenge. Recently, antibody-based therapies have been developed that are more specific and have fewer side effects compared with conventional chemotherapy. However, the
potency of most antibody therapeutics is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The market for protein-based biopharmaceuticals is rapidly expanding. However, the clinical utility of many proteins is limited by their short serum half-life, requiring frequent injections. The most common approach to
improve serum half-life is PEGylation. The… more
Abstract:The proposed task creates the design for a robotic system (Unmanned Surface Vessel (USV))to control and conduct unmanned and unsupervised refueling of another USV. The concept uses an optimized boat design, light-weight low profile crane, boom end mounted robotic effector, novel hose end connection… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Hepatitis B is a major global health problem. About 350 million chronically infected people are at high risk for cirrhosis of the liver and liver cancer, resulting in appoximately a million deaths annually. Current va
ccines command a 1 billion annual market.… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Osteoporosis is a serious public health problem faced by an aging US population. Until recently, bone screening was inaccurate and models of fracture risk were relatively crude. A new radiological technique using measu
rements of the X-ray spectrum can perform… more
Abstract:A supported metal hydride with high gravimetric hydrogen density and high volumetric hydrogen density has been proposed for application as a hydrogen generating material for Army soldier-portable fuel cell generator requirements. The hydride is thermodynamically capable of releasing pure hydrogen… more
Abstract:A flameless personal water heater will be developed that is capable of heating small individual volumes of water for meal preparation, sanitation, or hygiene. The heater will react air and JP-8 in an enclosed flow path and transfer the heat generated to water. The device will be packaged into an… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II aims to develop a catalytically active filtration device for the continuous removal of particulate matter from diesel engine exhaust. Particulate emissions from diesel engines are viewed as a significant health hazard. New diesel fuel and… more
Abstract:High temperature superconducting (HTS) cables can strengthen and improve the national electrical distribution infrastructure. These HTS cables require sufficient cooling to overcome inherent low-temperature heat loading. For optimum efficiency, HTS wires should have an operating temperature of 63-83… more
Abstract:A diver's ability to perform dexterity work is greatly diminished in long duration missions if his hands are cold. Research has demonstrated that protecting a diver's torso, arms, and legs in cold water diving without simultaneously providing adequate thermal protection to the hands proves futile… more
Abstract:The push to hypersonic flight regimes requires novel materials that are lightweight as well as thermally and structurally efficient for airframes and thermal protection systems to increase safety and decrease system weight. The materials required must maintain their performance throughout the… more
Abstract:In 2005, President George W. Bush issued a Vision for Space Exploration that included a return to the lunar surface by as early as 2015. This mission is expected to undertake far more ambitious activities than those of the previous Apollo mission, possibly involving medium to long term lunar… more
Abstract:The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of incorporating aerogels into thermoelectric devices to improve their efficiency and lifetime. The proposed work will develop and evaluate aerogel-filled thermoelectric generators for converting waste… more
Abstract:The contractor shall work in concert with the government to research, design, develop, fabricate and evaluate a digital voice technology prototype using an industry standard Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) architecture. In addition, the contractor shall work with the government selected vendor… 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.
