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. Field Deployable Diagnostic Test for Active Cutaneous Leishmania and a Test for Latent Infection

    SBC: ACCESS BIO, INC.            Topic: A04177

    Leishmaniasis has significant impact on military and civilian populations throughout the Asia-Africa region, including Afghanistan and Iraq. There are currrentlly no proper field-deployable diagnostic tools for the key form, cutaneous leishmaniasis. Development of an assay which detects cutaneous leishmaniasis, that is rapid, accurate, field usable, soldier-friendly, and meets regulatory requireme ...

  4. A Device for Measuring Gas Polarization

    SBC: Advanced Liquid Crystal Technologies            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project is to develop an instrument to measure the polarization of a hyperpolarized noble gas, Helium- 3 and Xenon-129, for enhanced lung MRIs in a clinical environment. It is essential to have some means of measuring polarization at various stages in the handling of these gases, e.g. at production, storage, transport and administration to a patient. Th ...

  5. In-situ Smart Corrosion Sensors for Army Missile Systems

    SBC: AGINOVA, INC.            Topic: A04164

    Early detection of corrosion and its severity can help control corrosion initiated failures in wheeled vehicles and aviation assets. Although preventive maintenance and periodic inspections are required to minimize cost of corrosion these routine inspections are limited to external areas and can be subjective. If it was possible to develop a low cost corrosion sensor that would be able to remotely ...

  6. In Situ Training of Robonaut for In-Space Assembly, Maintenance and Servicing

    SBC: AMERICAN ANDROI            Topic: X702

    The goal of the proposed FieldTrainer control system is to enable astronauts to teach Robonaut on-orbit how to perform new complex tasks using EVA tools. Employing a show-and-tell approach to robot training, the control system acquires rule-based task plans through verbal dialog between robot and astronaut, and acquires neural network-based skills incrementally though verbal, visual, and manual i ...

  7. Rugged Electrodes for Mapping Sediment Habitat


    Currently no commercially available voltammetric electrode system exists which can operate in the water column, water/sediment interface or sediment. These electrodes need to sense a variety of electroactive species in the marine environment, which are biogeochemical relevant to understanding the Essential Fish Habitat. More importantly, these electrodes must be able to take the punishment of mu ...

  8. Land Mine Detection by Time Reversal Acousto-seismic Method

    SBC: ARTANN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A03107

    The objective of the proposed research is to develop new technologies and a prototype of the Time Reversed Acoustics (TRA) system of land mine detection. This system provides a high concentration of seismic wave energy at any desired point (e.g., on a land mine). It is the only system that is capable of focusing seismic waves in time and space, which highly increases the detection abilities of lin ...

  9. Microwave remediation of hazardous medical wastes

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Infectious Medical Wastes, e.g. hospital wastes, represent a major component of hazardous wastes generated in the U.S. annually, with > 4.5 million tons generated from > 7,000 hospitals. Incineration remains the predominant disposal method, with continued problems of environmental pollution, severe local opposition, transportation, high costs associated wit ...

  10. Spacecraft Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) Based on Polybenzoxazole (PBO) With Unique UV, Atomic-O and Solar Wind Protective Coatings

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: X603

    Poly(benzoxazole) (PBO) is a new polymeric material extremely promising for external spacecraft structural applications, including, e.g., debris and micrometeoroid shields and crew suits. One of its drawbacks is its reduced resistance to the far-UV and atomic-O. If a well-adhering, protective coating for PBO fibers and sheets could be found, a plethora of space applications would be opened up. In ...
