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. Compliant Brush Shroud Casing Development for Aircraft Engine Compressors

    SBC: ADVANCED COMPONENTS & MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed Phase II program will optimize the design and manufacturing process of a compliant brush shroud casing. Recent tests at Wright Laboratories with staged brush seals have demonstrated significantly increased blade to shroud rub tolerance of acompliant casing. Phase I of the program is expected to demonstrate the feasibility of two innovative brush shroud designs with lower cost and we ...

  3. Implantable Noise-Based Sensory Enhancement Devices

    SBC: AFFERENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Stochastic resonance (SR) is a counterintuitive phenomenon in which slight amounts of noise imparted to a system actually increase its sensitivity to weak stimuli. SR has been shown to produce a demonstrable effect in human sensory cells. In both healthy young and clinical subjects - elderly, diabetics, and stroke sufferers - a notable increase in tactile and proprioceptive sensitivity is seen whe ...

  4. ENHANCING THE TACTILE SENSE USING MECHANICAL NOISE

    SBC: AFFERENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Stochastic resonance (SR), a counterintuitive phenomenon in which slight amounts of environmental noise actually increase the discernability of signals or stimuli, produces a demonstrable effect in human sensory cells. In both healthy young and clinical subjects- elderly, diabetics, and stroke sufferers-a significant increase in tactile and proprioceptive sensitivity is noted when electrical or me ...

  6. Method for Control of Biting Midges Using Odor-Baited Traps

    SBC: American Biophysics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a method of trapping biting midges including Culicoides. Biting midges are economically important insect pests. Their presence in large numbers can have a detrimental impact on land development and tourism. In addition, these insects are the vector of bluetongue, an arbovirus which is transmitted in cattle and sheep during repeated blood-feeding by biting flies. Our approach ...

  8. Electronic Warfare Adaptive Spatial/Spectral Cancellation

    SBC: DEEGAN RESEARCH GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed for development is an escape trunk cofferdam that is made of a set of rigid (composite sandwich) cylindrical sectors joined by longitudinal sealing joints. The cofferdam is attached to the escape trunk's bubble skirt by an attachment ring whichallows the sections of the cofferdam to be staged below the hatch before it is opened. When the hatch is opened, the sectors are raised through t ...

  9. Epitope driven HPV Vaccine Targeting Dentritic Cells

    SBC: EPIVAX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) types 16 and 18 are detected in roughly 70% of all invasive cervical tumors. Among cytologically normal women, detection of HPV infection by PCR has been shown to increase the subsequent risk of cervical cytologic abnormalities by 12 fold, suggesting that effective vaccines (preventive/therapeutic) for HPV infection would be a useful medical advance in the battle agains ...

  10. Diagnostic Reagents for Emerging Infectious Diseases

    SBC: EPIVAX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): West Nile virus (WNV) is a flavivirus commonly found in Africa, West Asia, and the Middle East. The virus was introduced into the United States in 1999. Case-fatality rates during the 1999-2000 U.S. epidemics ranged from 3 percent to 15 percent and were highest in the elderly. The virus is expected to over-winter during ...
