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. Intravascular Cardiac Assist System for Decompression and Recovery

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is to develop a less invasive long-term copulsation device to treat patients in late Class III and early Class IV stages of heart failure (HF). Chronic congestive heart failure is the largest unsolved problem in cardiac care today. There are over 5.5 million people in the United States with this diagnosis and the number of patient ...

  2. A Novel Polymeric Percutaneous Heart Valve Prosthesis

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this SBIR program is the modification of a polymeric trileaflet heart valve to a valve prosthesis that can be delivered percutaneously as a transcatheter aortic valve replacement. Key innovations include improved durability and hemodynamic properties, lower manufacturing costs, and simplified delivery over existing transcatheter bioprosthetic v ...

  3. Minimally Invasive Pediatric VAD for Treatment of Acute Heart Failure

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: NHLBI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall objective of this proposed program is the commercialization of the Pediatric Impella system, a minimally invasive ventricular assist device (VAD) for treatment of acute heart failure in pediatric patients. The device will be a less traumatic alternative to extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), the current standard of care for these patients. T ...

  4. Demand Driven Healthcare Scheduling using Flexible Shifts and Monte-Carlo Simulat

    SBC: ACME EXPRESS, INC.            Topic: NINR

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The shortage of nurses and medical technologists is accelerating. Shortages can be reduced by scheduling staff to precisely meet the hour-by-hour demand for medical service. Think of bank teller scheduling, where more staff are scheduled at peak demand. Current attempts to schedule to demand are relatively primitive: a small number of quantized fixed shifts, fo ...

  5. Digital Analysis Computing Software Solutions for the Supply Chain

    SBC: AltaSim TechNologies, LLC            Topic: SB092006

    Electrical circuit designers at Tier 2-4 suppliers to the Department of Defense (DoD) are currently using desktop computing to design their products. To improve the circuit design in the DoD supply chain, designers will need to be able to analyze their circuits with High Performance Computing resources. Designers seeking to innovate their circuits must have access to HPC facilities that maintain c ...

  6. Modeling and Simulation for Robust Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: AltaSim TechNologies, LLC            Topic: AF081038

    Increasing the power density of current jet aircraft engines requires the replacement of conventional high temperature materials by new materials capable of operating at higher temperatures. Ceramics and ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) represent excellent candidates for increased use in hot engine parts due to their ability to withstand temperatures in excess of 2000 C. Due to the complexity of t ...

  7. A functional and multimodal biofeedback device to treat balance dysfunction in mTBI patients.

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD09H22

    According to existing data, there are more than 1.5 million of Americans sustaining a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) each Year. Balance disorders represent one of the main regular problems that patients have to deal with, and thus everyday. Rehabilitation programs do exist but they are dependable of the clinician or physiotherapist and they do not take in account the multimodal aspects of balance co ...

  8. Thermoelectric-Powered Field Kitchen Appliances

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09162

    Cooking appliances in U.S. Army field kitchens are currently heated by burning JP-8 fuel using electrically powered burners. Power is supplied by a separate JP-8 fired generator that serves multiple appliances simultaneously. This is inefficient, as generators are only 20-25% efficient, and unreliable since failure of the generator results in the failure of the entire kitchen operation. This is a ...

  9. Visualization for Command and Control of Cyberspace Operations

    SBC: VISITREND            Topic: AF083022

    Cyberspace superiority is a prerequisite for effective operations in all other warfighting domains. To maintain cyberspace superiority, there is a need for effective Command and Control (C2) tools to observe, plan, and execute cyber operations. Visualization is a key enabler of C2 but new approaches are required to address cyber security data sets. A principal challenge is the complexity of this d ...

  10. Aerosol Plasmon-Enhanced Laser Desorption Ionization

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT34

    Aerodyne Research, Inc. (ARI) and The University of Massachusetts at Amherst will collaborate to develop a novel technique for efficient mass spectrometric analysis of high molecular weight analytes such as proteins and polymers. Laser desorption and ionization with minimal analyte fragmentaton will be carried out on metal nanoparticle substrates in a particle beam sampled by Aerodyne’s proprie ...
