Abstract:Dark Matter accounts for nearly 90 percent of all matter in the universe, yet its identity remains one of the biggest mysteries of modern science. Although Dark Matter is invisible to telescopes, astronomers know it is there from the gravitational influence it exerts over galaxies. Using sensitive… more
Abstract:Current radiation detectors used in nuclear physics are typically capable of detecting only one type of radiation well. Therefore, the systems in use require a number of individual detectors for each type of radiation. Furthermore, fast neutron spectroscopy is often very challenging. The research… more

Abstract:ABSTRACT: Modern electronics used for military space communications are susceptible to highly energized charged particles such as electrons and protons originating from coronal mass ejections that create geomagnetic storms. There is a need for advanced protection measures that can help minimize… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Eddy current testing (ECT) is a widely practiced and critically important nondestructive evaluation (NDE) method used in aerospace, yet it relies on decades-old, wire-coil sensors. Flexible sensors are needed to inspect curved surfaces near the edges of components including wheel bead… more
Abstract:Phase I demonstrated the feasibility of fabricating cost-competitive intermediate band light-harvesting solar cells with high conversion efficiency, through a combination of intermediate band physics and the unique structure of our proposed material. Phase II will continue the research, produce… more
Abstract:While many applications may have access to harvestable energy in the form of solar radiation (or other ambient light), wind, environmental vibration, or wave motion, not all do. In this proposal, RMD targets the most challenging applications, sensors that must operate for many months or years and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Radionuclide-guided intraoperative probes increase the specificity of tissue biopsies, enable minimal- access incisions, reduce inpatient hospital utilization, and contribute to improved patient recovery. At present, most such probes on the market are non-imaging… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Discovery research in the pharmaceutical/biotech industries utilizes high throughput, label-free drug binding cell-based assays, many of which are functional assays. In such instances, the receptor-ligand interaction isonly an indirect measurement of binding and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): DNA damage threatens the longevity and functionality of cells, and is common to the pathogenesis of many diseases. Better tools are needed for clinical identification and research into mechanisms underlying DNA oxidation, deamination, and hyper/hypomethylation,… more
Abstract:Global analysis of serum lipoprotein subclasses requires a platform that measures size distributions of lipoprotein particles identified by apoprotein content. We propose to employ an innovative methodology based on superparamagnetic and birefringent nanoparticles that bind to supramacromolecular… more
Abstract:This proposal for a Ka-band Spread Spectrum terminal presents a unique affordable design approach for On-the-move satellite communications. Over the past 5 years Alico Systems has been involved in the design and development of low cost phased array antennas for the DoD. Our most recent product for… more
Abstract:The overall objective of the program is to develop innovative concepts for more efficient and reliable clutch plates for the JSF Fan Duct Clutch. Carbon-carbon composite clutch plates can meet a 1,500 engagement life requirement for a lift fan clutch, but this is at least two times less than the… more
Abstract:Advanced ceramic matrix composites (CMC) are required for various components in the propulsion system along the hot gas path, where pressures up to 3000 psi and flame temperatures from 4000 degrees F to 5000 degrees F are encountered. In order to achieve the lightest possible and optimal component… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of the proposed research is to develop a novel quantitative particle agglutination technology for improving the performance of assays for detection of allo-antibodies to red blood cell antigens. Theconventional hemagglutination blood typing… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): According to the National Survey of Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) of 2008, 7.2 million Americans are in need of treatment for Substance-Related Disorders (SRDs), and a large proportion of those need treatment for opiate pain reliever, heroin, and alcohol addiction.… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The objective of this Phase I SBIR effort is to develop and demonstrate a multifunction, multi-beam X-band subarray that is capable of simultaneously supporting communications for satellite operations and radar for air/space surveillance. Under this proposed effort, Alpha Omega… more
Abstract:The Phase II STTR technical objective will update, expand, and validate the excellent results achieved in the Phase I"Analysis and Modeling of Foreign Object Damage (FOD) in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC"s)"program. The program will evaluate CMC component life capability before and… 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.
