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 I: Develop an Autonomic-Healing Hot Mix Asphalt

    SBC: Advanced Engineering Research, LLC            Topic: AM

    The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of developing autonomic-healing hot mix asphalt. A major objective of this proposed study is to develop self-healing hot mix asphalt (by means of phase-dispersion of healing agent) that would actively arrest microcracks. This study will involve mechanical tests to determine the healing efficiency of auto ...

  3. Novel Approach for Fast and Economic Manufacturing of Human Antibodies

    SBC: ALPHA UNIVERSE LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A growing number of potential native and engineered biothreat agents effectively limit the proactive protection of public health through vaccination. An alternative approach relies on the use of corresponding protective antibodies that are pre-made and are used as injectable drugs in reactive rather than proactive mode. The implementation of this approach, how ...

  4. A GIS Software Toolkit for Monitoring Areal Snow Cover and Producing Daily Hydrologic Forecasts using NASA Satellite Imagery

    SBC: Aniuk Consulting, LLC            Topic: S604

    Aniuk Consulting, LLC, proposes to create a GIS software toolkit for monitoring areal snow cover extent and producing streamflow forecasts. This toolkit will be packaged as multiple extensions for ArcGIS 9.2 and provides users with a means for easily ingesting NASA EOS satellite images (for snow cover analysis), preparing hydrologic model inputs, and visualizing streamflow forecasts. Primary pro ...

  5. Miniature Ambulatory Hot Flash Monitor

    SBC: BAHR MANAGEMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We were originally awarded SBIR grant R43AT003183-01 in September 2005 to develop a miniature, wireless skin conductance monitor to measure hot flash frequency and severity. A prototype monitor was developed that measur es changes in sternal skin conductance and uses pattern recognition software to recognize the frequency, and timing of hot flashes. The electro ...

  7. Generic Fluorescent HTS Assay for Oxidoreductases

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): There is a high level of pharmaceutical interest in targeting enzymes that catalyze oxidation and reduction reactions for therapeutic intervention. Validated redox enzyme targets include HMG-CoA reductase, the target of statin drugs like Lipitor that are used to treat hypercholesterolemia, and 51-reductase, the target of drugs used to treat benign prostatic hy ...

  8. Microfluidic Viral Infection Assay

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In less than one year the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic claimed over 20 million lives worldwide, killing 675,000 Americans, more than 10 times the number of deaths to US servicemen in World War I. A similar strain of the vi rus that caused the 1918 pandemic could today kill 2 million Americans and force 10 million to be hospitalized. Although anti-viral drugs are k ...

  9. Development of a Highly Automated Microarray Data Analysis System That Allows

    SBC: BIOINFORX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Though microarray experiments are very popular in life science researches, managing and analyzing microarray data are still challenging tasks for many biologists. Most microarray programs require users to obtain sophist icated knowledge of mathematics, statistics and computer skills for usage. There are very few programs providing highly automated data analysis ...

  10. A novel process for converting wood chips into improved composite boards, chemcials, and fuels.


    The Medium Density Fiberboard or MDF industry in North America is facing many challenges, largely as a result of the weak housing market. Residential construction is 20 percent below 2006 levels and it is not likely that an improvement will happen before mid 2008. Rising imports of secondary wood products from China and other low costs countries also have a detrimental impact on the North American ...
