Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Heart disease frequently leads to cardiac fibrosis. In almost all cases of chronic heart disease, the myocardium exhibits fibrosis developed by activated cardiac fibroblasts. These fibroblasts are quiescent in the healthy heart. Interstitial fibrosis due to… more
Abstract:Crop growers in the United States, and in developed countries worldwide, apply large amounts of phosphate fertilizers to their fields. In the US for example, growers annually apply over 4,000,000 tons of phosphate fertilizer. Fertilizer rates are typically applied in excess of the crop need, since… more
Abstract:Nitrogen affects proteins, enzymes and metabolic processes and is essential for crop growth. While annual usage varies based on world economic conditions, approximately 80,000,000 metric tons of fertilizer N are applied annually in the world, of which more than 10,000,000 tons are applied annually… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The specific aims of the Phase II research are the development and testing in an animal model of minimally invasive microwave balloon catheter instrumentation for producing biological stents in pancreatic ducts and bile
ducts and for producing biological… more
Abstract:The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) is a revolutionary electric propulsion thruster and power processing (PPU) system that will allow a dramatic decrease in system mass and increase in thrust efficiency over traditional 500-1000 W propulsion systems. The high specific power (>700 W/kg) and… more
Abstract:A new thruster technology, the Electrodeless Lorentz Force (ELF) thruster, has been designed and tested at MSNW that has the capability to address the demanding combined requirements of high specific power, high efficiency, a large Isp range, and T/P in a single, lightweight device. The ELF thruster… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant) Typhoid fever is a major cause of morbidity worldwide with an estimated incidence of 16 to 33 million infections and 500,000 to 600,000 deaths annually. It is caused by Salmonella typhi (S. typhi). The Vi capsular polys
accharide of S. typhi is the protective… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This application is a Phase I SBIR grant application. One of the major causes of morbidity and mortality of low birth weight neonates relates to injury, inflammation, perforation and obstruction of the lower GI tract, w
hich can be manifest in the related… more
Abstract:NuGen Mobility, Inc. (NuGen) is proposing an innovative solution for future combatant craft generators based on its patented axial flux PM motor technology and a novel high efficiency three-chamber internal combustion engine. While it has been recognized that permanent magnet motors offer higher… more
Abstract:Command and control battle maps and mission planning can be greatly enhanced by the representation of the battlefield in 3 dimensions. Showing perspective views, depth and occlusions allows for a better understanding of the situation, and assists in avoiding error when interpreting the terrain. Such… more
Abstract:As the power demands of airborne sensor platforms increase there is a growing need for improved capacitor technologies for compact energy storage. While progress has been made on electrolytic supercapacitors as well as nanocomposite composites, an ultrahigh dielectric strength capacitor with high… more
Abstract:The Numerical Technology Company and North Star Imaging (NSI) team in this project to develop and verify a Computed Tomography (CT) based technology for accurate three-dimensional measurement and characterization of fiber waviness (wrinkles) in fiberglass/epoxy and carbon/epoxy composite structures.… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to develop innovative highly reliable High Power Optical Amplifier (HPOA) modules for optical satellite communications (SATCOM) operating over broad ranges of temperatures (i.e. from -40 to +80 0C) and of radiation environment (i.e. total dose of 300krads with a… more
Abstract:Active phased array radars are expensive and solid state power and low noise amplifiers are a major component of that expense. Sharing these amplifiers amongst many antenna elements is a strategy for reducing expense. However, in order to maintain independent phase control, the phase shifter and its… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Desirable drug ADME (Absorption, Disposition, Metabolism and Elimination) properties are key determinants of a drug's to safety and efficacy. Unfortunately, poor ADME and Toxicity attributes have caused more drug failur
es than any other factors. There is a… more
Abstract:Risks associated with possible medical events during space missions are challenging to identify and manage. Resources must be applied judiciously and risk must not be ignored. NASA's researchers need the capability to identify the risks that arise from the potential medical events, gather all of… 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.
