Abstract:ABSTRACT: ADI and ASU propose to develop a novel methodology for blade peak stress prediction from limited strain gage/tip-timing measurements when multiple vibratory modes are present. The current protocol assumes that only one mode is present and only provides upper and lower bound estimates of… more
Abstract:Research on utilizing inexpensive and personal-level parallel computing architectures to speed up the implementation of the class of particle filters is proposed. This study will leverage NVIDIA Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and multi-core CPUs that are quickly becoming commonly available for… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal targets a specific mission of NIOSH and the current SBIR solicitation: hearing loss prevention for mine workers. The main objective of this work is to reduce the noise radiated by Continuous Miners (CM). Since CMs are responsible for about 30% of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The success of drug development and clinical research is heavily dependent on the quality of data, patience compliance, and statistical analysis. Traditional data collection via paper-pencil is labor- intensive and inconvenient, often leading to missing, noisy or… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Drug abuse and addiction have been closely linked with HIV/AIDS since the beginning of the epidemic. Although injection drug use is well known in this regard, non-injection drug abuse plays a greater role in the spreadof HIV than is generally recognized. Drug… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over a million people in the United States are infected with human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS), with one out of five unaware of their infection status1. Although the overall number of new infections has remained… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): ClotFoam(R) , is a novel adhesive sealant composition and second-generation hemostatic agent. This biological agent was designed to arrest moderate to severe blood loss arising from intracavitary traumatic injury orintraoperative hemorrhage without compression… more
Abstract:This small Business Innovation Research Phase² project proposes the research of advanced Bio-cathode Microbial Fuel Cell (BcMFC). Microbial Fuel Cell (MFC) generates power from renewable energy sources. However, the performance of MFC is mainly limited by cathode. ElectroChem has isolated a novel… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The next generation of hypersonic and reentry vehicles being designed for the Department of Defense (DoD) applications will require advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS). While new TPS shields are under development, a key difficulty is the ability to predict and diagnose TPS… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The proposed Phase I efforts seek to develop a dual-mode Hybrid ChemicalElectric Propulsion thruster concept design based on the extensive microwave torch/arcjet experience of PSU and Hall and ion experience of EDA. The primary focus of the Phase I effort will be demonstrate the… more
Abstract:IT systems today are static and allow the adversary time to plan and launch attacks. Endeavor proposes to create a Multi-layer, Ever changing, Selfdefense
Service (MESS) that is both resilient and manageable. MESS significantly hinders an attacker's ability to exploit a target system by removing
Abstract:Today's static IT systems allow adversaries time to plan and launch attacks. Endeavor proposes a Multi-layer, Ever changing, Self-defense Service
(MESS) that is resilient and manageable. MESS prevents attackers from exploiting a target system by removing the static network & system attributes
Abstract:This STTR phase I project aims to develop a novel material system for muti-Watt level, Room Temperature 3.0 to 3.5 micron Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) utilizing our state-of-art in house Mod Gen II molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) system. Due to their bi-polar nature and the exponentially increasing… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Currently, more than 60 % of end-stage renal diseases patients who require chronic hemodialysis are accessed through a native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) or synthetic graft (AVG). Unfortunately, primary failure rates were as high as 60 % at 6 months after AVF… more
Abstract:Breast cancer is a leading cause of malignancies in women, resulting in almost 200,000 new cases every year. In approximately one third of breast cancer patients, malignant cells spread to distant organs and cause metastatic tumors. Tumor progression, metastatic spread and patient prognosis depends… more
Abstract:GreenWood Resources proposes to develop hybrid poplar growing stock of improved water-use efficiency using a strategy of species selection, inter-specific hybridization, and varietal selection. The proposed work will lead to an increase in the cost-efficiency of current sawlog production and future… more
Abstract:Biomass to biofuels can provide solutions for energy independence, lower cost of fuels and global climate change mitigation. However, to achieve the goal of converting biomass into biofuels, the biomass must be broken down into its component sugars so they can be fermented into fuels. Cellulases are… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
