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. A Cognitive Approach to Promoting Cross-Cultural Perspective Taking Skills

    SBC: 361 Interactive, Llc            Topic: OSD06CR1

    Cultures differ in cognition. These cognitive differences naturally result in expectancy violations and perceptual mismatches between people of different cultures. And while they are, by nature, difficult to observe, a culture’s cognitive attributes significantly influence individual perceptions and overt behaviors. A training program that addresses general cross-cultural perspective taking s ...

  2. Measuring Learning and Development in Cross-Cultural Competence

    SBC: 361 Interactive, Llc            Topic: A07050

    Contemporary operational environments are often characterized by ambiguous, multi-cultural contexts, where Army Soldiers must rapidly adapt without extensive prior knowledge of a region or its people. Ongoing training development efforts are addressing the need for general cultural competence, but this broad competence must be clearly defined and assessed in order to determine if our Soldiers are ...

  3. A Novel Method to Isolate Islet Cells


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goals for this Phase I proposal are: 1) construction and bench testing of a novel device to dissociate tissue from donor pancreas using ultrasound for the recovery of pancreatic islet cells for transplantation, and 2) marked improvement in yields and viability of islets recovered using this approach as compared to the existing, standard method. Pancreatic i ...

  4. Enhancing Homologous Recombination in Plants Through the Use of Custom Endonucleases

    SBC: Advanced Genome Technologies, Llc            Topic: 48

    Homologous recombination (HR) permits the precise insertion, deletion, or substitution of genetic material in the genome of an organism. HR offers numerous opportunities for modifying plant genomes to enhance our understanding of plant gene function and regulation, especially with respect to enhancing the production of biofuels. Although HR normally occurs at very low frequencies, approximately ...

  5. Physiological-based Tools for Virtual Environment Fidelity Design Guidance

    SBC: ADVANCED INFONEERING, INC.            Topic: N07T028

    We propose to use physiological sensors to measure the quality of a trainee's interaction with a virtual environment (VE) as a function of VE fidelity to enable design improvements in VEs and to enhance training effectiveness through feedback of physiological-based performance information. Currently, VE design is guided by subjective design models that involve multiple design iterations and focus ...

  6. Automated Bin-Picking and Package Delivery System

    SBC: AGILE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N02031

    In its SBIR Phase I, Agile Systems Inc. developed concepts for new shipboard automated material handling technologies that address important opportunities to reduce crew size and generally increase logistics efficiency on Navy surface combatants—present and future—as well as on aircraft carriers and the CLF supply vessels that serve Carrier Battle Groups. NAVPAK is a system that automates the ...

  7. Develop High-Temperature, Low-Humidity Aromatic Hydrocarbon-based H2/O2 Membranes for Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cells

    SBC: AKRON POLYMER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF071130

    The development of proton exchange membrane (PEM)(also known as polymer electrolyte membrane) fuel cells has been limited by the availability of suitable membrane materials. In order to achieve acceptable performance at low cost, such fuel cells are required to work at elevated temperature and low (near 0) relative humidity (RH) for extended periods of time. For example, the U.S. Department of Ene ...

  8. Physical Improvements in Exciter/Igniter Units

    SBC: Alphaport, Inc.            Topic: X903

    The proposed project consists of developing a prototype exciter/igniter unit that can operate to a subset of expected flight performance requirements. The main focus of this development effort will be the physical integration of a small, compact exciter with a "flight like" igniter or spark plug. This exciter/igniter prototype will represent the exciter/igniter units used to generate sparks that ...

  9. Novel Membrane-Mimetic Media for Brain Derived GPCRs

    SBC: ANATRACE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The importance of brain-derived G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) in mental function and health can hardly be overstated. However, our knowledge of the molecular biophysical basis for how GPCRs bind to their cognate agonists and antagonists to elicit function is limited by the lack of high resolution 3-D structural information for these proteins. In this p ...

  10. Unresolved Resident Space Object Characterization Using Time-Frequency Analysis

    SBC: Applied Optimization, Inc            Topic: AF071283

    Applied Optimization, Inc., in working with Boeing-LTS and Space Dynamics Laboratory, proposes to demonstrate that full-feature characterization of small and faint unknown RSO in real-time is feasible by using the spectral-temporal features of its signature. Time-resolved spectrometer data in the visible or infrared will be considered as the input. In addition to enhancing existing methods for RSO ...
