We propose to produce a software package that will leverage the ever… more
Abstract:A continuing and growing threat to US military personnel and civilians is exposure to toxic chemicals and pathogens. Useful detection systems exist, but it remains imperative to investigate new technologies that have the potential to significantly improve the cost, sensitivity, and size of sensor… more
Abstract:A continuing threat to U.S. military personnel and civilians is exposure to toxic chemicals and pathogens. While there exist methods and systems for vaccine development, agent detection, and assessment of exposure and immune response, it remains imperative to investigate next-generation technologies… more
Abstract:Infection with Acinetobacter baumanni, especially drug-resistant strains, is a serious threat to U.S. military personnel and to the U.S. population. Identification of wound pathogens and their drug susceptibility within minutes to hours, and administration of the appropriate drug, could… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Project Summary: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States and is responsible for more deaths each year than breast, prostate, colon, hepatic, renal and skin cancers combined. Viewed in economic terms, in the United States, the value… more
Abstract:Chesapeake Technology International"s (CTI"s) proposed solution for the Maritime Airborne SOA Integration small business innovative research (SBIR) program provides a comprehensive Services Oriented Architecture (SOA) that will leverage the connectivity of the GIG to enable Network Centric… more
Abstract:ABSTRACT: Identifying the presence of endangered and threatened species is crucial to complying with Environmental Protection Agency regulations. Each year military reservations spend large amounts of resources in time, materials, and manpower in identifying if endangered or threatened species… more
Abstract:Silicon Carbide deep UV detectors can achieve large gains, high signal-to-noise ratios and solar-blind operation, with added benefits of smaller sizes, lower operating voltages, radiation hardness, ruggedness and scalability. SiC UV APDs implementation is challenging due to some material defects,… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project seeks to develop a novel technique and device for high-speed uncooled room-temperature infrared (IR) imaging using micro-antennas and Metal-Insulator-Metal (MIM) rectifiers. These antenna-rectifier structures, called rectennas, will be… more
Abstract:Silicon Carbide (SiC) electronics has the potential for revolutionizing the high temperature high power electronics industry. There is a strong need for tools and models for circuit design using the new SiC power devices that are coming to market. Our work in this project will focus on developing… 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.
