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. Anastomotic Device for Large Vascular Grafts

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposed program is to develop a general purpose anastomotic device for large vessels and vascular grafts, based on a novel stapler design. The use of the device can provide an alternative procedure to the current manual suturing methods, with the potential of yielding anastomoses having better and more reproducible performance, and with r ...

  3. Phased array ultrasonic aircraft fatigue damage inspection

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: AF083246

    The practice of removing aircraft from service and disassembling parts of its structure for periodic inspection negatively impacts readiness and leads to high sustainment costs. Using Acoustic Ideas''''''''s uniquely powerful and versatile phased array technology we will develop a novel inspection method that does not require disassembly. Multiple layers, large thicknesses, dissimilar metals, seal ...

  4. Portable Mid Infrared Analyzer for Onsite Measurement of Nitrate and Organic Matter in Soil

    SBC: WILKS ENTERPRISE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nitrate is an important nutrient for crop production. Soils with excess nitrate amounts and shallow groundwater tables pose a high risk to nitrate leaching into drinking water supplies. A shortage of nitrate decreases agricultural productivity. Measurement of soil nitrate content is a tedious, time consuming, and expensive process. Currently, there are no commercial sensors for in-situ nitrate det ...

  5. A Compact, Efficient Pyrolysis/Oxidation System for Solid Waste Resource Recovery in Space

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: X203

    Both pyrolysis and oxidation steps have been considered as the key solid waste processing step for a Controlled Ecological Life Support System (CELSS). Pyrolysis is more amenable to handling mixed solid waste streams in a microgravity environment, but produces a more complex product stream. Oxidation (incineration) produces a simpler product stream, but the oxidation of mixed solids is a complex u ...

  6. Turbine Inlet Gas Temperature Measurement System

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: AF083260

    Gas turbine engine development requires sensors to measure gas path properties in engines during ground testing.  The data collected with these sensors are critical to the development of advanced engines with high performance, high efficiency, and low emissions.  While instrumentation is available to measure most of the important gas path properties, the drive toward higher turbine inlet tempera ...

  7. Label-free Multiplexed Immunoassay Platform for Diagnosing Liver Disease

    SBC: ZOIRAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of the present work is to demonstrate a label-free multiplexed immunoassay platform liver disease diagnosis. The method is to integrate multiple tests for serum antigens and antibodies onto a single disposable chip that could be used with the instrument for about the cost of one or a few current immunoassays that identify the presence of just one marke ...

  8. Label-Free Protein Array for Alzheimer's Disease Detection and Monitoring

    SBC: ZOIRAY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We propose the development of a single-chip, multiplexed, label-free platform for Alzheimer's disease diagnosis and monitoring of protein markers in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF). The Spectral Reflectance Imaging Biosensor is a label-free protein array technology that can monitor real-time binding label-free at more than 1000 locations simultaneously. A uniq ...

  9. Visualization for Command and Control of Cyberspace Operations

    SBC: VISITREND            Topic: AF083022

    We propose to research, design, and evaluate the feasibility of a Visualization for Integrated Cyber Command and Control (VIC3) system that fuses and displays vast amounts of multidimensional cyber security data from multiple sources to provide a unified view of the cyber battlespace. VIC3 will allow commanders to monitor cyber activity, correlate events, understand information dependencies, evalu ...

  10. STTR Phase I: High Thermal Conductivity Carbon Fibers From Nanotextured Mesophase Pitch Precursors


    This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is for the development of ultrahigh thermal conductivity carbon fiber for use in graphite-metal composites. The use of graphite fiber in a metal matrix produces a composite with high thermal conductivity and controlled CTE, the two key requirem ...
