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. Cannula System for "Bridge to Recovery" Cardiac Assist

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Cardiac failure is the, largest single cause of mortality in the United States today. With an increase in the use of long-term cardiac assist devices, there is also a need for the short-term "bridge to recovery" application. This application is intended to provide a low-cost temporary support for patients whose heart is capable of recovering. This "patient scr ...

  2. Heated Thermoplastic Fiber Placement Head for NASA Langley Research Center

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A404

    Reduced-mass polymer composite materials are crucial to the success of aerospace systems for reducing vehicle weight. But, composite material adoption is inhibited because the autoclave consolidation required is prohibitively expensive for the large tanks and skins contemplated in the Next Generation Launch Technology (NGLT) Program. To remedy this, NASA-LaRC has been developing cost-effective, ...

  3. Optimal Composite Materials using NASA Resins or POSS Nanoparticle Modifications for Low Cost Fabrication of Large Composite Aerospace Structures

    SBC: ACCUDYNE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: X602

    Reduced mass composite materials are crucial to the success of aerospace systems, but their adoption is inhibited because they require autoclave consolidation, a process that is prohibitively expensive for large aerospace structure. To remedy this, NASA-LaRC has been developing cost-effective high-performance thermoplastic composite processing equipment that enables out-of-autoclave tape placemen ...

  4. Molecular Evolution of Chondroitinase ABCI for SCI

    SBC: Acorda Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating event affecting approximately 11,000 individuals each year in the US alone. Although most victims survive, the individual is often paralyzed for the rest of his or her life. Sixty percent of injuries occur in individuals between the ages of 16 and 30. Life-time medical costs average about $1.5 million dollars per patie ...

  5. Effects of Chondroitinase and Training in Acute SCI

    SBC: Acorda Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Spinal cord injury (SCI) inflicts trauma to the cells and tissues of the central nervous system and typically results in debilitating loss of function below the level of injury, for which no effective treatment exists. Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycans (CSPGs) an important component of the glial scar. The majority are potently inhibitory for axonal growth and ...

  6. Chimeric proteins for the treatment of spinal cord injury

    SBC: Acorda Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Spinal cord injury (SCI) inflicts trauma to the cells and tissues of the central nervous system and causes a severe and debilitating condition in the individual. Following SCI, limited regeneration of injured neurons results in permanent disability characterized by some loss of sensation, paralysis and autonomic dysfunction. One reason that neurons fail to rege ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Advanced Phased Array Ultrasound Instrument for Nondestructive Evaluation (NDE)

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase II research project strives to develop an Advanced Ultrasonic Beamformer that is unparalleled in its scalability and signal processing features. The ultrasonic beamformer architecture will be unique in its breadth of features. The architecture was developed as the superset of features across several fields including medical imaging, medical therapy, bone density measurement, vascul ...

  8. Application of Cortical Processing Theory to Acoustical Analysis

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: AF03T006

    Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc. (AAC) proposes to extend its Phase I work in Auditory Cortex based sound classification. During Phase I AAC demonstrated the feasibility and accuracy of a computational model of human auditory processing based upon this cortical theory. AAC also demonstrated the concept by collecting a large number speech sounds and bird calls of various species and appling the cor ...

  9. Development of a Supportability Performance Assessment System for Training Systems

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N03074

    In order to win the war for recruitment and retention, the CNO has stated that sailors of today and tomorrow must be well trained and equipped. Given the diverse needs of training communities, acquisition managers, and curriculum developers it is ultimately important to provide accountability and ownership in any mechanism or process that intends to enhance performance. This SBIR project will de ...

  10. Distributed Buoy Vessel Detection System

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Protection of U.S. coastlines must begin with a front line situated significantly far enough seaward that potential threats to the Homeland can be detected and tracked, allowing enough time to interrogate and intercept if the threat is verified. The team of ACC and Sparton Electronics proposes a low-cost networked buoy vessel detection and tracking system based on the Navy?s low-cost directional A ...
