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. Image-Guided System for Cancer Intervention


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This program will demonstrate the potential for commercial success of a novel approach for tracking and displaying the position and orientation of instruments in image-guided cancer interventions. Prototype systems will be demonstrated in selected pancreatic procedures in human subjects. New clinical applications will be examined and commercialization will beg ...

  2. Head-Lock Mount for Advanced Night Vision Goggle (NVG)

    SBC: Diffraction, Ltd            Topic: AF081011

    Diffraction LTD proposes to develop a novel occipital head-lock system to support advanced night vision goggles (NVG) used by Air Force personnel not wearing typical aviation or combat helmet. Phase I efforts will demonstrate the feasibility of a lightweight, direct head mount that maintains optimal NVG performance in the absence of a helmet, minimizes user fatigue, and reduces the risk of injury ...

  3. Theory of Mind Software for Autism and other Communication Disorders


    DESCRIPTION (provided by investigator): Full participation in the human social milieu requires that one be able to understand that other people have their own goals, intentions, and beliefs (which may or may not be correct) - and that these epistemic state s govern people's behavior. This form of awareness has been called Theory of Mind (ToM). Unfortunately, the development of ToM is severely dela ...

  5. System for comprehensive tracking and analysis of C. elegans behaviors

    SBC: MICROBRIGHTFIELD, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The soil nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans), is a promising model organism to assess the effects of potential developmental and neurological toxicants on multi-cellular organisms. However, to determine the po ssibility of using C. elegans as a practical and efficient model in toxicology studies, medium throughput technologies must be created to monit ...

  6. Rapid In-vivo Cancer Detection via Multispectral Confocal Cellular Imaging

    SBC: Omega Optical Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A fast, cost-effective multispectral confocal imaging capability for high-resolution mapping in vivo will be created during this project. This new approach will be based on fiber Bragg gratings, a technology not utiliz ed previously in biomedical imaging, and will ultimately enable the early in vivo detection and treatment of cancer at the cellular level. The ...

  7. Reagent-less Miniature Wireless Chemical Biological Explosive Sensor

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project will design a miniature wireless reagent-less sensor to detect chemical, biological, and explosive materials in solid, liquid, and vapor form. These sensors are needed to implement a wide area hazard detection network to protect the health and welfare of the public. QuantaSpec will integrate its standoff explosive detector and chemical vapor detector to fit in a cell phone. QuantaSpec ...

  8. Malaria Diagnostic Methods to Replace Microscopy in Clinical Trials

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: A08118

    This project will adapt QuantaSpec's FDA funded research to develop a highly specific and sensitive test to detect malaria parasitemia using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Furthermore, this test will be rapid, automated, inexpensive, reagent-less and highly accurate. Malaria incapacitates a significant number of soldiers in endemic regions and can cause casualties. Better meth ...

  9. Multiplexed Assay for the Detection of Wound-related Pathogens

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: A08122

    This project will develop a bench-top system for the rapid identification of bloodstream infections. Rapid accurate infectious diagnostic systems are needed to identify effective therapy, reduce mortality, morbidity, and treatment costs. QuantaSpec will adapt its FDA funded work to develop a rapid automated accurate infection identification system based on FTIR spectroscopy. FTIR spectroscopy i ...

  10. High Energy Density, Low-Cost, High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Vehicles

    SBC: Sbe Inc            Topic: 05

    Currently, no low-cost capacitors provide an elevated temperature, high reliability solution to the DC Bus Inverter need in hybrid electric vehicles. In previous work, an annular film capacitor design, which showed potential for use in the DC Bus application, was developed. The unique shape of the capacitor enables the potential use of polypropylene film at 105°C, a requirement for this appli ...
