The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. PEDIATRIC BODY LEAD BURDEN BY X-RAY FLUORESCENCE

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THREE TO FOUR MILLION YOUNG CHILDREN FROM ALL LEVELS OF SOCIETY ARE EXPOSED TO ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES OF LEAD AT CONCENTRATIONS THAT PLACE THEM AT RISK FOR ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS. YET, THERE IS NO TOOL AVAILABLE FOR MEASURING TOTAL PEDIATRIC BODY BURDEN OF LEAD. THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP AN X-RAY FLUORESCENCE (XRF) INSTRUMENT THAT WILL ALLOW MEASUREMENT OF BODY LEAD BURDEN IN CHILDREN IN VIVO AND N ...

  2. LONG-TERM CENTRIFUGAL VENTRICULAR ASSIST DEVICE

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CENTRIFUGAL BLOOD PUMPS HAVE BEEN USED EXTENSIVELY FOR SHORT-TERM CIRCULATORY ASSISTANCE AND PERFUSION PUMPS. THEIR UTILITY FOR LONG-TERM VENTRICULAR ASSISTANCE IS LIMITED BY THROMBUS FORMATION AT THE SHAFT SEAL. ABIOMED, INC., WILL DEVELOP A MAGNETICALLY SUSPENDED CENTRIFUGAL BLOOD PUMP THAT WILL HAVE NO SHAFT SEAL AND BE SUITABLE FOR LONG-TERM CIRCULATORY SUPPORT IN EITHER AN IMPLANTED OR EXTRAC ...

  3. AN OPTIMAL LASER SOURCE FOR SMALL-DIAMETER VASCULAR ANASTOMOSES

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH WILL DEMONSTRATE THAT A NEW 1.9-MU M LASER CAN PERFORM LASER-ASSISTED VASCULAR ANASTOMOSES OF SMALL-DIAMETER VESSELS (1 TO 5 MM). THE 1.9-MU M LIGHT HAS OPTIMAL ABSORPTION CHARACTERISTICS TO ENSURE AN EVEN DEPOSITION OF ENERGY IN THE VESSEL WALL. THIS SHOULD RESULTIN A MORE DESIRED TEMPERATURE PROFILE IN THE REGION OF THE ANASTOMOSIS WHEN COMPARED WITH ALTERNATIVE SOURCES. THE PROPOS ...

  4. A PERIODONTAL TEMPERATURE AND DEPTH PROBE

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE IS TO DEVELOP A PERIODONTAL PROBE CAPABLE OF MEASURING SITE TEMPERATURE AND POCKET DEPTH SIMULTANEOUSLY AND AUTOMATICALLY. THE PROBE IS INTENDED TO BE A RAPID SCREENING DEVICE FOR THE STATE OF PERIODONTAL HEALTH DURING ROUTINE DENTAL EXAMINATIONS. STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT THE INFLAMED SULCUS IS ACCOMPANIED BY ELEVATED SITE TEMPERATURES. POCKET DEPTHS ARE ROUTINELY MEASURED DURING DENT ...

  5. ABDUCTIVE NETWORKS FOR SPACE SURVEILLANCE AND CLASSIFICATION

    SBC: ABTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    THE REQUIREMENTS OF SPACE WARFARE DICTATE THE NEED FOR INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES TO SOLVE COMPLEX SPACE OBJECT CLASSIFICATION PROBLEMS. ADVANCES IN COMPUTING SPEED AND EXISTING SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY ALONE ARE UNLIKELY TO RESULT IN A REAL-TIME DISCRIMINATION SYSTEMS CAPABLE OF MEETING THE COMPLEX REQUIREMENTS OF SPACE OBJECT SURVEILLANCE AND CLASSIFICATION. RATHER, AN ALTERNATIVE METHODOLOGY SUCH AS AB ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A NIOBIUM SUPERCONDUCTING RF QUADRUPOLE LINAC

    SBC: Accsys Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUPERCONDUCTING RADIO FREQUENCY (RF) ACCELERATOR STRUCTURES HAS PRIMARILY FOCUSSED ON HIGH ENERGYELECTRON ACCELERATORS AND HEAVY ION BOOSTERS FOR ELECTROSTATIC ACCELERATORS. HOWEVER, SEVERAL GROUPS HAVE SUGGESTED THAT THIS TECHNOLOGY MIGHT BE USED TO ACHIEVE A CONTINUOUSLY OPERATING RADIO FREQUENCY QUADRUPOLE (RFQ) ACCELERATING STRUCTURE. THE NORMALLY CONDUCTING RFQ LINEAR ACCEL ...

  7. LANDFILL GAS RECOVERY FOR COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS VEHICLES AND FOOD GRADE CARBON DIOXIDE

    SBC: Acrion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    LANDFILL GAS (LFG), COMPRISED OF METHANE (CH4) AND CARBON DIOXIDE (CO2) IN ROUGHLY EQUAL PROPORTIONS ALONG WITH MYRIAD TRACE CONTAMINANTS, IS NOW ESSENTIALLY A WASTED RESOURCE THAT COULD PROVIDE LOCALLY SIGNIFICANT SUPPLEMENTALENERGY. LFG HAS BOTH EXPLOSIVE AND TOXIC PROPERTIES THAT MUST BE MITIGATED AT THE LANDFILL SITE; CONSEQUENTLY MOST INSTALLED LFG TECHNOLOGY IS CONTROL ORIENTED AND ADDRESSES ...

    SBC: Active Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FOUR BEARINGLESS, SHAFT MOUNTED GENERATORS WITH OUTPUTS OF 10, 100, 500 AND 1000 WATTS OF 12-15 V DC WILL BE DESIGNED AND COMPUTER MODELED TO BE DRIVEN BY MODEL AIRPLANE SIZE RECIPROCATING ENGINES. DESIGN COMBINATIONS OF IRONLESS DISK AND IRON LAMINATION CYLINDRICAL GENERATORS USING RARE EARTH AND CERAMIC PERMANENT MAGNETS WILL BE MODELED FOR RELIABILITY WITH THE LOWEST WEIGHT AT THE HIGHEST EFFIC ...
