Built on COTS hardware, the… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The ultimate goal of this Phase II SBIR is to provide the Air Force with a game-based approach to train Air Force maintenance personnel. Sonalysts believes that the most cost-effective solution will include: The continued development of specifications for a SAM-T that uniquely uses… more
Abstract:The Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to address a significant need: aiding parents as they help their children learn to read. In particular, our goal is to develop software that will enable a parent and their child, who are not co-located, to reap the benefits that… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project has the objective of demonstrating thermal interface material (D-TIM paste) at least twice as effective in use in packaging electronics with medium and high power loads as prior material. A major focus is on enabling novel mode of heat… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project addresses the timely need to develop new and robust in silico tools for the prediction of skin sensitization potency of commercial chemicals. Currently, there are no reliable and broadly applicable alternatives to the costly and… more
Abstract:The overall goal of this proposed program (through Phase III) is to build a space-worthy Drug Stability Analyzer that can determine the extent of drug degradation. It will be able to monitor the drug active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and its degradation product concentrations as a function of… more
Abstract:We propose to carry out a three-phase R & D project leading to a scalable, easy-to-use Cohort Builder software tool making it possible for clinical practitioners and quality assurance personnel to carry out comparative health research studies quickly and effectively, without the need for… more
Abstract:Sustainable Innovations has developed an innovative concept for highly efficient, reliable, potable water production based on technology from a commercial line of hydrogen recovery and compression systems the company is developing. This Electrochemical Dehumidification and Life Support System… more
Abstract:Sustainable Innovations, LLC, is developing an Electrochemical Methane Generator (EMG), which comprises a novel method of converting CO2 and H2O to hydrocarbon fuels (such as methane) and O2. When powered by a renewable energy source, such as solar or wind power, it can provide a method for… more
Abstract:Sustainable Innovations is developing a technology for efficient separation and compression of hydrogen gas. The electrochemical hydrogen separator and compressor can actively remove hydrogen from a mixture and compress it to high pressure for storage or use. In applications where helium is used as… more
Abstract:Advanced x-ray observatories such as IXO and GenX will require thousands of thin shell mirror segments produced by replication using convex mandrels. Quality and cost effective manufacturing of these segments is proportional to the speed and effectiveness of the metrology we use in manufacturing and… more
Abstract:Amastan, in collaboration with the University of Connecticut, proposes to make high temperature phase stable and CMAS resistant coatings of lanthane hexaaluminate (LaMgAl11O19) material as a suitable substitute to YSZ top coat for thermal barrier coating applications. These coatings, although… more
Abstract:Historically, operation of the mid-frequency active sonar in littoral regions has presented sonar operators with challenges due to the complex nature of the ocean acoustic environment in shallow waters. Although there are complex reasons for the appearance of clutter, research has shown that… more
Abstract:Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are severe neurodevelopmental disabilities characterized by deficits in social and communication skills and the presence of restrictive, repetitive behaviors. For the 80 percent of individuals with ASDs who speak, prosody—the rhythm, stress, and intonation of… 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.
