The power electronics market segments include high current carrying semiconductor devices such as IGBTs, MOSFETs, power transistors, and modules. … more
Abstract:Complex mixtures encountered in biomass derived process streams include components which can inhibit fermentation. This can have a negative impact on the production capacity of the biorefinery as it can greatly decrease the output from the conversion of the biomass derived sugars to fuels and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The U.S. CDC estimates that each year roughly 1 in 6 Americans (or 48 million people) gets sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die of foodborne illnesses. The costs in lost productivity and increased health carecosts are enormous, in addition to the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop a new biosensor platform to simultaneously detect multiple contaminants (adulteration chemicals, antibiotics, and pathogens) in food and dairy products. The biosensor products are in a portable configuration, consisting… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The counterfeit drug business originated with lifestyle drugs, such as the erectile dysfunction drug. Now, however, counterfeits in almost any therapeutic category may be purchased by Americans through internet pharmacies. In fact, the Pharmaceutical Safety… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Flying animals achieve good attitude control using a combination of optical and strain sensors. Strain sensors have much lower latency than optical sensors, leading to the hypothesis that strain sensors are what make good attitude control possible. A Phase I program is proposed to create… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: To address the needs of the Air Force regarding improved flight control room tools, Systems Technology, Inc. (STI) proposes the development of a software toolbox suite for real-time aeroelastic aircraft system identification and modal extraction using flight test data. Modal extraction… more
Abstract:Sea clutter, surface traffic, sensor motion, and contact motion can present challenges to an operator monitoring the ASW picture. When multiple sensors enter the operator's scan, it can become extremely difficult to synthesize the information. Different reference frames, resolution, sensor… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is hypothesized that the use robotic rehabilitation tables coupled with virtual reality games with elderly stroke survivors residents in skilled nursin facilities (SNFs) will: 1) improve and maintain upper extremityuni-manual and bimanual function, reach,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): It is hypothesized that it is possible to use virtual reality such that it simultaneously: 1) provides non-medication analgesia for women with chronic shoulder pain following breast surgery; 2) improves their upper extremity strength/range of movement; and 3)… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): With recent radiation release from reactors in Japan and increasing probability of nuclear detonation somewhere in the world, there is a critical need for development of effective medicinal counter-measures that can bedelivered after exposure to prevent… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pathogens responsible for many of the common human infectious diseases such as urinary tract infection (UTI), gastroenteritis, pneumonia, and wound infections have proven to be highly adept in acquiring mechanisms of antimicrobial resistance. Widespread… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cachexia-anorexia syndrome is a life-threatening aspect to many diseases, in particular many forms of cancer or therapies for cancer. The obvious symptoms of this disease include lack of appetite, and a loss of lean body mass disproportionate to the reduction in… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT Conventional culture vessels are not designed for physiological oxygen delivery. Both hyperoxia and hypoxia - commonly observed when culturing cells and tissues in regular plasticware- have been linked to reduced cellular function and death. An adequate means to provide oxygenation is also… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Current NIGMS-SBIR funding supported InvivoSciences LLC's (IVS) launch of several product lines in 2010. IVS generated revenues from the sales of three-dimensional (3D) cell culture tools (MC-8TM and IVS InsertsTM) thatcan grow various hydrogel tissues… 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.
