Abstract:In this proposal Zeomedix proposes to develop a dressing for infected trauma wounds based on its zeolite encapsulating nitric oxide (NO) technology. Nitric oxide has been shown to enhance the wound healing process as well as act as a powerful antibacterial agent. However, delivery of nitric oxide… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Heart failure is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, contributing significantly to global health expenditure. Heart failure patients often exhibit contractile dyssynchrony, which diminishes cardiac systolic function. Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)… more
Abstract:A new type of x-ray microscope is proposed for three-dimensional imaging of integrated circuits, or IC"s. The new microscope can image at resolutions down to 25 nm, and at speeds of over 10 million pixels per second. This imaging rate is over 1000x faster than existing high-resolution x-ray… more
Abstract:This proposed work addresses the needs of a short pulse, tunable and monochromatic extreme ultraviolet and soft X-ray beamline that is table-top, low cost and easy-to-use for advanced material and nano- device studies using photoemission spectroscopy and nano-imaging techniques. The short-pulse and… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to develop a prototype for a commercial two-dimensional infrared (2D IR) spectrometer and its associated mid-infrared laser system. One of the most exciting developments in the field of ultrafast spectroscopy in the last decade has… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project entitled "A sustainable Wavelength Selective Energy Producing Greenhouse" will demonstrate a greenhouse that can utilize land for both food production and electricity production. A cost effective and highly durable greenhouse… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR) Phase I project will utilize patent pending technology that allows direct dissolution and reconstitution of natural biopolymers to prepare chitin/alginate composite fibers with embedded additives for use in wound care products. The technology allows for… more
Abstract:Bio-fouling on ship hulls and other marine structures has become a global environmental and economic issue. There is an urgent need for the development of next-generation marine coatings that are nontoxic, long-lasting, low-cost and effective even under static conditions. This Small Business… more
Abstract:Lack of decontamination in the event of a FAD outbreak amplifies the spread of disease and makes the outbreak even more challenging to contain,
despite strict regulations that enforce sanitation processes. The impact that widespread disease could have on the export market is along the lines… more
Abstract:Building on an existing grid computing platform and DNA origami design automation software that leverages such, this Phase II STTR project will produce a CAD (computer-aided design) application for designing DNA nanostructures for a variety of applications. The application, called inSequio,… more
Abstract:A development program is proposed for a design automation software package that enables the generation of complex surfaces, with user defined or automated definition of point charge and hydrophobic/hydrophilic properties, using DNA origami as a presentation substrate. Building upon existing… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase II project will produce a working prototype of a DNA processing system that will provide the U.S. Department of Defense with a revolutionary new forensics capability, namely, the ability to predict from a human DNA sample the physical traits of its source. The system, code-named… more
Abstract:Future sampling missions to the Moon, Mars and Asteroids will likely involve drilling and in-situ analysis from mobile robotic platforms in low gravity. Past sampling systems like the MER and MSL Rovers have used tool body preloading as their method of stabilization. This method puts high demands… more
Abstract:The open-source network management software ecosystem is currently a collection of loosely-related projects with poor support for long term planning and high-level network information.

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.
