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. Release Chondroitinase Systems for Spinal Cord Injury

    SBC: Acorda Therapeutics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Spinal cord injury (SCI) inflicts trauma to the cells and tissues of the central nervous system and causes a severe and debilitating condition in the individual. Following SCI, limited regeneration of injured neurons results in permanent disability characterized by some loss of sensation, paralysis and autonomic dysfunction. One reason that neurons fail to rege ...

  2. Application of Cortical Processing Theory to Acoustical Analysis

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc. (AAC) proposes to implement a computational model of human auditory processing based upon cortical theory and to demonstrate its utility to evaluate and improve systems for speech communication and automated recognition ofspectro-temporal patterns. Specifically, AAC believes that unusual brain representations and processing strategies are largely responsible for th ...

  5. Vacuum Windows for Third Generation Syschrotron Radiation Beamlines

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Improving the quality and intensity of the x-ray beam is an important design goal for every synchrotron installation. Although small, the effects of vacuum windows on x-ray absorption and phase contrast cannot be neglected. Synchrotron x-rays have wavelengths on the order of one Angstrom (1 x 10-10m), the same order of magnitude as inter-atomic distances. These x-rays are used to study many differ ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Bulk Production of Passivated Metallo-Carbohederenes utilizing Laser Assisted Molecular Beam Synthesis

    SBC: AMBP Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop a process to generate bulk quantities of Metallo-Carbohederenes (met-cars). The project will use a particle and deposition technology, called Laser Assisted Molecular Beam Deposition, which is ideal for producing met-cars on the nanoparticle size scale. The unique structure of the met-cars makes them applicable for a vari ...
