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. Miniature, point-of-care device for establishing sterile connections in combat environments

    SBC: RemPhos Technologies LLC            Topic: A16055

    The advantages of the proposed device are that it is safe, compact, highly effective, and easy for a field medic to operate. The principal innovations of the device include: (1) the UV device is portable, (2) miniaturized, (3) shielded to allow safe use along with conventional hemodialysis catheters, (4) delivers efficacious disinfection results along the ex vivo catheter lumen that are not techni ...

  5. Defect Detection in Narrow Bore Components with Quantum Dot Liquid Penetrants

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A16010

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will develop a liquid penetrant system based on colloidal quantum dots (QDs) and a high resolution dual-channel fiberscope to enable nondestructive examination of micron sized cracks in the bore evacuator holes of gun tubes. The ligand-free QDs will eliminate hydrocarbon contaminants found in conventional penetrants and mitigate hydrogen embrittlement of steel componen ...
