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. Noncontacting Full-Field Real-Time Strain Measurement System for Air Platforms in Combined Extreme Environments

    SBC: Correlated Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF151069

    ABSTRACT:A cooperative small business and university research and development program is proposed to begin development of a robust, non-contacting, digital image correlation based, full-field strain measurement system for high temperature applications. The Phase I studies will demonstrate that a robust high temperature digital image correlation system (HTDICS) can be developed that is capable of a ...

  2. Rapid Rewarming Reduction of Cryoprotectant Toxicity and Concentration Employing Magnetic Nanoparticles


    We will evaluate a novel warming method, developed by our collaborator John Bischof, that promises solution of one of the remaining barriers for banking of large organs and vascularized composite tissues. The method involves radiofrequency and magnetic nanoparticles to obtain rapid uniform electromagnetic rewarming of biological materials instead of warming from the outer boundary using convection ...

  3. Avoiding the Ice Cryolesion in Tissue Cryopreservation with Ice Modulators


    The long term goal of the proposed research is to develop improved methods for cryopreservation of complex tissues at extreme low temperature. An innovative approach is taken in the proposed line of research, where synthetic ice modulators (SIMs) are combined with established cryoprotective agent (CPA) cocktails to create more favorable conditions for cryopreservation in a process known as vitrifi ...

  4. Automated Visual Location Fix for Submarine Navigation

    SBC: ALTRON, INC.            Topic: N151031

    Submarine navigation teams typically use navigation aids (Navaids), such as lighthouses, smokestacks, and more conventional navigation buoys, to precisely maneuver about potential water hazards and within confined waterways. The Navy seeks to use submarine periscope image data to automatically acquire and maintain visual fixes on various Navaids, in order to reduce operator workload and enhance th ...

  6. Fabrication of T-SOFC via Freeze Cast Methods for Space and Portable Applications

    SBC: Yanhai Power LLC            Topic: H801

    As NASA space missions become longer in duration the need for high efficiency power generator sets that can operate on NASA logistical fuel become critical. Historically NASA has used fuel cells as part of the energy solution. Space bound energy and power systems require rapid start and stop cycle times as well as high power densities. The high operational efficiency, coupled with the use of logi ...

  8. Low-loss Optical Polymer Materials in Multi-kilogram Quantities for Optical Lens Development

    SBC: Tetramer Technologies,L.L.C.            Topic: N132137

    In this Phase II SBIR program, Tetramer Technologies will develop new, commercially attractive, thermoplastic optical polymers that have ultra-low scattering losses for use in diffraction-limited optical lenses. The value proposition to the customer using optical components made from Tetramer polymers will be decreased scattering of light transmitted through the polymer lens, resulting in smaller ...
