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. A Bioactive Polymer Designed for Cardiac Assist Devices

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate objective of this proposal is the development of a novel, bioactive polymer for use in ventricular assist devices (VAD), and other long-term blood contacting implantable devices. Although VADs are becoming an important therapeutic option for patients in heart failure, serious problems persist secondary to thromboembolic complications and continue t ...

  2. An Artificial Myocardium for Pediatric Support

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The ultimate objective of this proposal is the commercialization of a pediatric 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 children or smal ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Electronic Stethoscope for Use in Helicopter Noise Environment

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the high noise environment of fixed and rotary wing aircraft used for casualty evacuation, a critical need exists to detect normal vs. pathologic heart and breath sounds and discriminate among their components. Evaluations by the Army staff at theU.S. Army Aeromedical Research Laboratory has demonstrated that no such capability exists whether in standard acoustic stethoscopes or electronic no ...

  5. Wear-and-Forget Electrocardiogram and Ventilation Sensor Suitable for Multi-day Use in Physically-Active Warfighters

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Active Signal Technologies proposes a thoroughly planned systematic development effort to produce a system that will meet the requirements of rugged operational monitoring to provide continuous electrocardiogram (ECG) and ventilation data on activelydeployed personnel. The program starts with a comprehensive literature survey across a broad range of life sciences, technology and government resear ...

  6. Brain Trauma Assessment System

    SBC: Active Signal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): With over 1.5 million persons suffering head injury annually in the U.S., and approximately 50,000 dying from these injuries, a need exists for early direct assessment of brain injury. Currently, injuries must be inferred from Glascow Coma Scores (GCS), low blood pressure, and/or low pulse oximetry, but there is no direct method of measuring brain condition at ...

  7. Environmental Assessments and Mitigation of Naval Operations (Air and Surface)

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objectives of this research are to fully design and develop a prototype of an environmental impact assessment and mitigation software suite, focusing on the impact of active acoustic emissions on marine mammals. This software will be: web-enabled,cross-platform capable, and be applicable throughout the life cycle of active source programs. Databases of biological data, environmental regulat ...

  8. Robust Towed Array Beamforming

    SBC: ADAPTIVE METHODS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Even when built to exacting standards, towed arrays invariably suffer acoustic sensor failures. A relatively small number of sensors can have large negative impact on beamformer side-lobe levels. This SBIR program will develop, implement, and integrate atowed array beamformer shading algorithm that provides robust performance as hydrophones fail. The selected algorithm must provide better acoust ...

  9. New Agents That Inhibit Fatty Acid Accumulation

    SBC: ADIPOGENIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obesity is a well-established risk factor for a number of diseases, including type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease. Although weight loss is the most effective treatment for type 2 diabetes, current methods for reducing weight typically are insufficient for long-term weight loss. The mission of AdipoGenix, Inc. is to discover, develop and license novel the ...

  10. Activators of Adipocyte Fatty Acid Oxidation

    SBC: ADIPOGENIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Obesity is a well-established risk factor for a number of diseases, including type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease. Existing drug and dietary treatments for obesity are only modestly effective. An approach that is very likely to be effective in treating obesity and with a good side effect profile is a drug that acts directly on lipid metabolism in the fat ...
