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. Advanced Fiber Optic Connectors for Condition Based Maintenance

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N06151

    Leveraging on our extensive production experience on glass ferrules and micro-optic components, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new class of fiber optic connectors with built-in stress relief and special fiber optic components of miniature beam splitters and 90 degree reflectors, targeted for structural health monitoring applications of military assets. These connectors and components are very ligh ...

  2. High Transparent Metal Oxide / Polyimide Antistatic Coatings

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: X207

    Through this Phase I program, Agiltron has successfully produced an innovative transparent conductive nanocomposite paint that holds the promise of meeting space application requirements. The paint can be easily applied to many surfaces and forms a clear conductive coating at temperatures as low as 130 oC. These coatings exhibit high visible transparency of ~ 85 % (> 95% with additional AR co ...

    SBIR Phase II 2006 National Aeronautics and Space Administration

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB061002

    We propose a new trace explosive collection and detection technique comprising Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) sampling chip and cell design of permeable/porous polymer matrix embedded with multi-layered gold nano-particles. The approach leverages the leading-edge micro-optical component development and manufacture at Agiltron and extensive experience in nano-material engineering within t ...

  4. High Quantum Efficiency Fast Detectors for the Readout of Scintillators for Gamma Ray Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: HSB062007

    Agiltron proposes to demonstrate a breakthrough detector for readout of scintillators for gamma ray detection that overcomes the quantum efficiency and high voltage limits of current PMTs and APDs. It holds the promise to improve the current scintillator detector resolution by at least 30 percent without the need for a high voltage power supply, and can be fabricated at a low cost. This new photom ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Development of Novel, Inducible Processing Traits in Corn for Ethanol Production

    SBC: Agrivida, Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project will produce corn with processing traits optimized for ethanol production. The corn will be modified by embedding inactive amylase enzymes into the crop that can be activated during processing steps. The polysaccharide degrading activity of the enzymes can be switched on after harvest, resulting in controllable, accelerated li ...

  8. Solid State Beta Imaging Sensor for Radioguided Surgery

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Advances in radiopharmaceutical have dramatically escalated the use of intraoperative gamma probes in surgery. Such probes provide benefits of increased tissue specificity obtained for biopsy, minimally accessed incisions, and the reduction of inpatient hospital utilization with an improved patient recovery. At present most of the probes on the market are non-i ...

  9. NearIR Photon-counting Camera for Diffuse Optical Tomography

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Early detection and routine clinical screening represent the first line of defense for managing cancer, a disease that claimed over 570,280 lives in the U.S. during the year 2005. Significant advances have been made in the medical imaging of tumors; however, many of these techniques are too expensive to be implemented for routine screening. Diffuse optical tomo ...

  10. Species Level Identification of Pathogenic Viruses on a Microfluidic Platform

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) proposes to develop a field-portable instrument for the detection and identification of pathogenic viruses that are collected by an aerosol concentrator. It will incorporate modular, microfluidic platforms designed to capture and concentrate the sample for a rapid, two-stage analysis. The first employs pathogen capture o ...
