Abstract:Apple snail (Pomacea canaliculata), a highly invasive pest affecting wetland crops in 18 countries including the U.S., is listed as one of the 100 Worst Global Invaders. One study showed that due to its voracious appetite, present value damage from the snail could cost Philippine rice production as… more

Abstract:Early childhood dental caries represents the most common, and possibly the most commonly overlooked, chronic childhood disease in the United States. National health leaders recognize that families with young children living in rural communities face significantly more barriers to sustaining positive… more
Abstract:Self-aware systems have three essential properties: they build empirical models of their own performance; they use those models to inform optimal plans of action; and they continually refine their models and plans based on the outcomes of their actions. Although engineers routinely build some degree… more
Abstract:Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration… more
Abstract:The objective of this project is to investigate an emerging spectral imaging technology having the capability of detecting and identifying improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), or landmines; at standoff distances of between 100 meters to 250 meters. Goal is… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project continues the development of an innovative diagnostic technology based on surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) through its combination with gold nanoparticle labels, high-speed fluid handling, and sandwich-based immunoassays. This… more
Abstract:Low dissolved oxygen (DO) levels are the most frequent cause of catastrophic fish mortalities in aquaculture farming, resulting in substantial dollar losses of valuable aquaculture crops annually. To address this problem, the U.S. aquaculture industry most often uses floating paddlewheels and/or… more
Abstract:Pongee (Channa sp.) are an esteemed freshwater food fish in Asia, Hawaii, and domestic Asian seafood markets. Traditional customer preference is for a live product. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service banned the import and interstate transport of live pongee in 2002. Therefore, the only… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alcoholic Liver Disease (ALD) is caused by excessive long term consumption of alcohol via increased oxidative stress, reduction of oxygen to liver tissue (hypoxia), altered fat metabolism, increased pro-inflammatory sig
naling molecules (or cytokines), and… more
Abstract:We are proposing to develop a Doppler radar based portable sleep monitor for assessment and monitoring of sleep disorders associated with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The proposed sleep monitor will include at least two respiratory variable, a cardiac… more
Abstract:Hawaii has year-round growing conditions and abundant agricultural land, yet it still imports more than 85% of its food. More than 2.3 million pounds of Agaricus mushrooms, a mushroom family that includes Portobello and Crimini, were imported each year in 2006 and 2007. Currently, these mushrooms… more
Abstract:The scope of this SBIR project is to develop the Kuehnle AgroSystem's technical innovation of live algae preservation to provide room temperature storage options for microalgae that are preferred for specific aquaculture and biofuels applications. A major bottleneck in developing algae biomass… more
Abstract:The challenge has been set to meet Navy"s renewable fuel standard using advanced biofuels. Microalgae, along with other future fuel crops, must be aggressively developed now, not later. Recent dramatic demonstrations with algae based biodiesel and biojet show that it is no longer a question of… more
Abstract:We propose to develop an advanced breakwater and causeway system for operation in austere ports, with limited or no facilities, that will provide a complete solution to reliably enable the military to supply forces ashore with needed cargo and supplies. A ruggedly-designed breakwater made from… more
Abstract:Modern warfare is becoming increasingly dependent on high technology and the means to power it. Lithium-ion batteries are a popular power choice due to high energy density and long charge hold. Unfortunately Lithium-ion batteries also have some distinct disadvantages including the possibility of… more
Abstract:The Oceanit-Ys/APL Foveal InfraRed Search and Track (FIRST) prototype is a dual channel cryogenic WFOV optical sensor system. FIRST provides multifaceted support for an airborne IR search and track and uses the unique Multi-target-tracking Optical Sensor-array Technology (MOST) sensor chip, which… more
Abstract:In the proposed effort, Oceanit will employ patented detection hardware and a novel approach to detect and deter avian populations from critical areas. Oceanit's solution will be autonomous, non-lethal, harmless to personnel, and unable to interfere with currently used sensor systems. Such a… more
Abstract:Prodrug-based drug delivery systems have the promise to augment the efficacy of compounds with limited bioavailability to solid tumors. We propose a unique approach for a targeted prodrug delivery system. The system has the potential to deliver other therapeutic agents as well. We propose to… more
Abstract:A low-cost, low-profile, phased-arrray SATCOM antenna with multi-beam and on-the-move capability is proposed for the Global Broadcast System (GBS) with operation in the Ka frequency band. Autonmous real-time beam steering will be achieved through a proprietary beam steering technique.
Abstract:Described herein is a proposal for the development of a novel countermeasure technique against the passive millimeter wave (MMW) sensor. The passive MMW sensor has become an essential device in modern warfare, enabling detection or imaging of a remotely located object or scenery without illuminating… more
Mobile information consumption is evolving alongside mobile computing technology. Mobile media monitoring however, and automated intelligent event alerting services have yet to be developed. We… more
Abstract:The TACOP Phase II effort will research, design, and prototype an instructor / operator-friendly solution for the LVC entity-management problem. The TACOP system will be composed of open source and government software that is compatible with Navy training architectures. The system will focus on… more
Abstract:As the Army transitions numerous capabilities into network-accessible services, available bandwidth is emerging as the most prominent bottleneck. There exists a need for a system to manage the various components and devices that make up the network to efficiently and effectively manage the network… 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.
