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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Signal Processing for Emerging Wireless Technologies

    SBC: 3DB LABS, INC.            Topic: AF05103

    The advent of third generation (3G) wireless communications is producing exponential growth of wireless information exchange. 3G systems provide increases in bandwidth, data rate, number of users and volume of traffic. Furthermore, complex modern modulation techniques and severe co-channel environments push the envelope of processing requirements. Particularly challenging is the CDMA2000 standar ...

  4. Exploiting Microstructural Evolution for Material and Damage State Sensing

    SBC: ADTECH SYSTEMS RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF06T037

    The objective of this project is to develop a multi-purpose combination type optical fiber sensor that enables simultaneous sensing of microstructural evolutions in the sensor materials and the environmental conditions such as pressure and temperature. It is very well known that materials subjected to fatigue and high temperature will go through microstructural changes such as plastic deformation, ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Photochemical Cyclopolymerization of Polyimides in Ultraviolet Ridgidizing Composites for Use in Inflatable Structures

    SBC: Advanced Coatings International            Topic: X202

    This innovation uses photochemical cyclopolymerization of polyimides to manufacture ultraviolet rigidizable composites for use in RIS (ridgidizing inflatable) structures. Sunlight initiated polymerization (UV polymerization) has been identified as a promising method for ridgidizing composites for inflatable space structures. The use of in-situ polymerized polyimides will provide superior dimension ...

  7. 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. Contoured Array for High Resolution Fetal MRI

    SBC: ADVANCED IMAGING RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A long term goal is to improve the quality of magnetic resonance (MR) examinations of the fetus. Specifically, custom radio-frequency (RF) Fetal Coil Arrays will be developed to permit high-resolution examination of the central nervous system (brain, spine) and major organs (heart, lungs) of the fetus irrespective of its orientation and the pregnant mother (abd ...

  10. Power Source Materials & Subcomponents Manufacturing Improvements

    SBC: ADVANCED MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD05MT2

    Advanced Membrane Systems Inc. (AMS) proposes a 6-month research effort to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a separator for BA-5590 primary batteries. It is proposed to modify the formulation and process condition of an existing separator developed by AMS for lithium ion cells and make it more porous and suitable for BA-5590 batteries and deliver separator samples to DoD labs and battery m ...
