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. SBIR Phase II: Continuous Spray-Capture Production System

    SBC: ABN            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop a technology that allows the stabilization of live probiotic bacteria for incorporation into food products outside the dairy case. ABN proposes a novel microencapsulation solution that involves pumping viscous liquids through a spray nozzle, followed by the capture of the resultant particles in a cross-linking fluid. The ...

  2. Development of Ara Feed Formulation for Improving Growth and Survival of Atlantic Salmon Smolt

    SBC: ABN            Topic: N/A

    In a standard aquaculture practice, smolts are transferred to ocean net pens without sufficient time period for osmotic adaptation, which results in significant losses to the farmer. In addition to high and unpredictable mortality rates, smolts are not able to grow optimally during their first 40-60 days in seawater. We are proposing to supplement salmon smolt feed with ARA, which may help in smol ...

  3. Automated Generation of Maintenance Work Packages

    SBC: 3E TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N05150

    Maintenance related activities represent a substantial portion of the Total Ownership Costs of any system. A significant portion of the total maintenance expenditure can be attributed to both direct and indirect (hidden) costs associated with maintenance planning activities. Automation can play a key role in reducing these costs by minimizing the time currently spent by sailors in the identificat ...

  4. Wireless Pressure Sensors With Built-In Calibration Capability

    SBC: 3E TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N05159

    Embedded sensors are finding widespread use in military systems, demanding that accuracy be assured for the entire life cycles of these systems. The U.S. Navy ensures the accuracy of shipboard sensors via scheduled calibrations and/or maintenance procedures (a manually intensive process). Developing new sensors with automated calibration capability is of primary importance. Leveraging research ...

  5. Autonomous Movement of Containers from Ship to Shore

    SBC: 3E TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N05152

    AEPCO has developed plans for a system that will alleviate the vast majority of difficulties associated with supply and sustainment transfers. The name of the system is the Autonomous Sustainment Cargo Container (ASCC) delivery system and its plans and description are on file with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The ASCC meets the identified needs set forth in the solicitation by pr ...

  6. Maintenance Performance Assessment

    SBC: 3E TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: N05156

    In order to meet reduced manning and cost goals, existing and future Navy ships are utilizing sensors and other automated technologies to monitor equipment health and provide accurate information to end users. Onboard future surface ships, it is envisioned that maintenance planning will be automated and maintenance procedures will be delivered to the technician in an electronic format on interact ...

  7. Auto-antibody profiling of non-small cell lung cancer

    SBC: 20/20 GENESYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Tumor markers, measured in peripheral blood, could assist in diagnosis and management of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and potentially improve historically dismal outcomes. Circulating antibodies, generated to a wide range of tumor-associated proteins, can be translated into a valuable blood test for lung cancer. Preliminary data supports this hypothesis. ...

  8. Cargo Transfer from Offshore Supply Vessels to Large Deck Vessels

    SBC: Advanced Technology And Research Corporation            Topic: N06057

    The Sea Base concept requires innovative means of transferring cargo between ships offshore. Of particular interest is the transfer of cargo to large deck vessels and vessels with overhanging decks. The proposal presents an innovative approach to transferring cargo using autonomous watercraft, automated materiel handling equipment, and automated launch and recovery equipment. The system relies ...

  9. High Performance Point Source LEDs

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: MDA04030

    This project addresses the need for high performance IR LEDs for scene generation in hardware-in-the-loop facilities and for the in situ calibration of IR optics in seekers and reconnaissance satellites. The Ioffe Institute has developed leading technologies to produce LEDs with high output, low operating voltage, and low thermal resistance. These solid-state devices are capable of simulating hi ...

  10. Novel Strategy for BIV Vector Site-Specific Integration


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Lentivirus-based gene transfer systems represent a promising gene delivery technology, as they integrate into the genome of the target cell and mediate sustained expression of the transferred gene. To date, the majority of studies have used vectors based on the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), a human pathogen and the causative agent of AIDS. Advanced Vision ...
