The compact and lightweight SkySight Quick Release Connector uses existing methods and hardware to integrate into the infrastructure, and no special… more
Abstract:The proposed SkySight Technologies Downed Power Line Sensor will detect and alert the presence of a downed power line and its energized status
through a sensor on the power line. In the event of a downed power line, an alert message is sent via wireless network to the utility provider regarding
Abstract:The purpose of this multi-phase program is to develop an innovative all-in-one surgical instrument for performing cricothyrotomies and managing airway trauma on the battlefield, with improvements aimed at ultimately reducing mortality rates associated with these procedures. The Wolf QuickCric is… more
Abstract:The U.S.s global leadership position in the manufacture of high value chemicals (HVCs) relies on its ability to produce and utilize simple and useful organic (SUO) building block chemicals, a $400 billion a year enterprise based on nonrenewable petroleum feedstock. To maintain U.S.s leadership… more
Abstract:Domestic US aquaculture is moving toward fishmeal replacement in aquafeeds with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. In our Phase I work we showed the feasibility of modifying the protein quality of several alternate protein sources,… more
Abstract:Model-based image reconstruction (MBIR) has been demonstrated to have great potential value in a variety of DHS applications including baggage and
cargo CT scanning. However, while MBIR has the potential to reduce artifacts and increase resolution, the computational requirements remain a
barrier to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this Phase II SBIR application is to test NTX-1 fiber in patients with constipation-predominant IBS (IBS-C) and determine if it can reduce symptoms, beneficially modify gut microbiota composition, and improve gut milieu in these patients. Our… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Over 8 million Americans have peripheral vascular disease (PAD). Percutaneous transluminal artery (PTA) treatment of severe PAD involves the use of balloons and stents, but delivery of these therapies is often suboptimal due to inaccuracies in angiographic… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Transseptal (TS) access for left heart procedures is an important and rapidly growing space for diagnostics and therapy delivery with an expected total of over 10 million U.S. patients. In the U.S. and/or Europe, TS access procedures are used for atrial… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a national and worldwide epidemic that places the largest clinical and economic burden on the healthcare system of any disease condition. Patients with stable and acute coronary conditions are often treated with percutaneous… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: The program will focus on the design and development of a compact, high efficiency C-Band telemetry transmitter. The transmitter will be capable of transmitting in three separate sub-bands. The user will be able to select the band of operation as well as the desired ARTM waveform. LTCC… more
Abstract:This proposal is focused on the development of very wide bandwidth, high efficiency power amplifiers for next generation EW, radar and wireless communication systems.

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.
