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. Hierarchical Grid Referenced Normalized Display (HiGRND)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: HSB062005

    In an Urban Search and Rescue (USAR) scenario, the ability for the rescuers to maintain an accurate and comprehensive situational awareness is critical to allow them to maximize their effectiveness in a chaotic and dangerous environment. Timeliness is, of course, paramount to saving lives, and miscommunications lead to potentially unnecessary deaths. 21st Century Systems Incorporated is pleased to ...

  2. An Artificial Myocardium for Pediatric Support

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate objective of this proposed program is the commercialization of a neonate ventricular assist device (VAD). Although VADs, both implantable and paracorporeal, have become an important surgical option for adult patients with myocardial failure unresponsive to less aggressive therapy, no VADs are commercially available for short-term use in small infan ...

  3. ECM Bioscaffold for ASD Repair

    SBC: ACELL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase I proposal seeks support to evaluate the feasibility of developing an extracellular matrix (ECM) biologic scaffold as a repair device for atrial septal defects (ASD). ASDs are one of the most common forms of congenital heart disease and account for approximately 30-40% of all congenital heart defects seen in adults. Closure of an ASD can be performed ...

  4. Directed Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells using Phage Displayed Ligands

    SBC: OCATA THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ability to culture human embryonic stem cells generated a great deal of excitement about their vast potential for treating a variety of human diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, neurological, retinal and skin disorders to name a few. Unlike adult stem cells, embryonic stem cells have indefinite growth potential and the potential to develop into any t ...

  5. Next Generation Solar Cells Based on Nanostructures

    SBC: ADVANCED DIAMOND SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF06274

    Advanced Diamond Solutions, Inc. proposes the development of a novel high efficiency solar cell design based on amorphous diamond nanotip thermoelectric power generation properties. Amorphous diamond has a unique set of material characteristics stemming from its combination of graphitic, diamond and carbon-nanotube structures. Amorphous diamond inherently possesses numerous discrete energy state ...

  9. Clinical study of GMCI in Pancreatic Cancer

    SBC: ADVANTAGENE, INC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in the US; with less than one-year median survival, it accounts for approximately 30,000 diagnoses and deaths per year. Multimodality therapy, including surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, have not made a significant impact on the outcome and serve mostly as palliation. Thus, new treatment ...

  10. Simulation of Stressing Optical Clutter for Scene Generation


    Infrared sensors play an important role in missile defense systems, and continued improvement in their performance is critical as adversary payloads become smaller, cooler, and dimmer. While there can be no substitute for in-situ performance testing, the risks, cost, and development time for future systems can be reduced through accurate scene and sensor simulations. Current scene simulation alg ...
