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. Improved Bearing Compartment Sealing for Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPONENTS & MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: AF071172

    Carbon seals generlly used for bearing compartments will incrasingly become unsuitable for future gas turbine engines with higher buffer air temperatures, higher pressur and rotor surface speeds.Phase I effort will focus on a synergistic approach including advanced materials and design.Three materials including a (Ti,Mo)(C,N) cermet, B-C composite and a current high temperature grade carbon MAT-12 ...

  2. Lab-on-a-chip for multiplexed newborn screening of lysosomal storage disorders

    SBC: ADVANCED LIQUID LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Newborn screening is currently performed by collecting dried bloodspots from infants and then sending them to a lab for analysis. There is an increasing necessity to screen for a number of disease conditions for which therapies are becoming available. Lysosomal storage diseases alone number greater than 40. There is a need to minimize the blood collecte ...

  3. CMC Structures for Exhaust Nozzle Components Based on 3-D Woven Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF071105

    In Phase I of the proposed program we plan to demonstrate the feasibility of manufacturing bladetrack components using an approach that will result in substantial reductions in cost and cycle time compared with conventional 2-D lay-up methods. The approach involves use of a 3-D fiber preform with the shape of the final component, produced by an orthogonal weaving process developed at 3TEX, which ...

  4. Innovative Joining and Repair Methodologies Using Hybrid Textile Preforms

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: N07T021

    Strength, durability and reliability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic properties, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress concentration and premature failure of adhesive bonded joints. The proposed work offers substantial enhancement ...

  5. Interfacial Adapters for Improved Cell Delivery to Tissues

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many human diseases can theoretically be treated by injection of healthy or engineered cells into damaged tissue, where ideally they will engraft and remodel the damaged tissue into healthy tissue. However, numerous obstacles stand in the way of this regenerative technology becoming reality. Perhaps the greatest obstacle is that cells injected into many tissues ...

  6. Point of Care Attachment of Multiple Antibiotics onto Metal Implants

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Infection surrounding metal implants is a common and sometimes devastating cause of implant failure in a number of fields including oral, craniomaxillofacial (CMF), orthopedic, and cardiovascular surgery. These infections, which arise from the establishment of biofilms on device surfaces, not only necessitate new surgeries but in themselves present a significan ...

  7. Bioactive Peptide Coatings for Synthetic Bone Grafts in Dental Applications

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, 86% of adults over 70 years have at least moderate periodontitis and over a quarter have lost their teeth, which has serious repercussion on health and quality of life. Because of bone loss caused by this disease, bone grafting is routinely necessary prior to the placement of dental implan ...

  8. Point of Care Adult Stem Cell Isolation

    SBC: AFFINERGY, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 500,000 bone-grafting procedures are performed each year in the United States (Boden, 2002). Autologous iliac crest bone graft continues to be the gold standard because it provides the three essential elements for bone formation: osteoprogenitor cells, an osteoconductive matrix, and osteoinductive molecules. Iliac crest harvest is however associat ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Photochemical Treatment of Dioxin-Furans Compounds from Industrial Air Emissions

    SBC: Air Control Techniques, P.C.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of a photochemical technique for destroying a highly toxic group of organic compounds known as dioxin-furans and consisting specifically of tetra- through octa-substituted polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans. The photochemical technique is designed to destroy dioxin- ...
