Abstract:The ability to track small vessels is critical to national security, but not easily accomplished due to the sheer volume of craft and the
range of environments which they operate within. The introduction of smart-phones with location, orientation, camera, and Internet
capabilities is enabling… more
Abstract:Maritime Security is derived from robust Situational Awareness and enabled through a man machine interface which promotes rapid human cognition. The ability to sense threats even in seemingly benign environments is key. Sensing threats early affords Fleet Operators critical timely reaction to set… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project proposes to construct a new microarray platform with high protein binding capacity that allows for enhanced fluorescence detection. Limitations of existing microarray surfaces include platform-based optical interferences and limited or… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop ?BunkerGreen?, a drop-in replacement fuel blend for use in medium and low speed marine diesel engines.~ The pending 200-mile EPA Emissions Control Area off U.S./Canada coastlines will require vessels transiting or operating… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Elevated levels of flammable, explosive and toxic gases in underground mines are well-documented causative factors in the fatalities and injuries associated with mining activities. Sensor Research and Development (SRD)Corporation will advance the current… more
Abstract:Establishing a secure domestic supply of clean energy has emerged as an existential challenge facing the US, given geopolitical threats to global energy supplies and serious risks arising from climate change. Utility-scale wind turbine technology has grown rapidly to supply 2% of US electricity… more
Abstract:Since wild fish stocks began their drastic decline in the early 1990s, the aquaculture sector is the fastest growing food sector in the world. Production from U.S. marine aquaculture accounts for only 1.5 percent of the domestic seafood supply, leaving an enormous growth potential for the production… more
Abstract:Early detection of positive mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) status is difficult in the post-trauma period and efficient, noninvasive screening methods are needed. Brain injury from trauma and other neurological conditions frequently escapes detection using current imaging technology such as… more
This Phase I research effort is to design and develop “seed” nursery methodologies for development of commercial-scale production of young kelp plants, specifically Saccharina latissima (Phase I), Alaria esculenta and Laminaria digitata (Phase… more
Abstract:Maine Blue Stream Power proposes to construct a field scale (2m diameter) prototype of a hydrokinetic energy conversion device, the Breus Rotor (patent pending), and perform in-stream tidal testing. The problem that Main Blue Stream Power addresses in this… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) is effective treatment of Parkinson disease. Because the STN is small (9 X 7 X 4 mm) and it is not well visible using conventional imaging techniques, microe
lectrode recordings (MER) is used to ensure… more
Abstract:Currently the air beam/arc shelters have no protection from mortar fragmentation or other indirect fire. In many cases, customary methods of ballistic protection such as sandbag walls and/or concrete barriers may require more logistical support than is available leaving the military personal… more
Abstract:We have discovered the easternmost commercial population of hard clams, Mercenaria mercenaria (L.), in the U.S., in the waters of Eastern Maine. In 2007, we received permission from the State of Maine to lease a 6-acre tract in the shallow subtidal of Goose Cove (Trenton) to farm cultured hard clams… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The overall goal of this project is to produce a multimedia educational intervention that will support recently returned veterans of Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and their relations
hip partners (spouse, family or friend)… more
Abstract:This project will demonstrate the performance of prototype wireless, passive microwave acoustic temperature sensors in a high temperature lab environment, including demonstration of stable operation at 650oC (1200oF) for more than 250 hours. The proposed sensor technology is based on patented… more
Abstract:This project will advance wireless high temperature harsh environment microwave acoustic sensor technology, whose feasibility was demonstrated by Environetix in Phase I, into a technology readiness evaluation stage through extensive sensor testing in laboratory and engine testbed environments. The… more
Abstract:NASA has a need to develop higher performance ablative thermal protection systems (TPS) than is currently available for future exploration of our solar system's inner and outer planets. Potential missions for these new and/or improved TPS materials include Mars Entry, Descent & Landing, and Mars… more
Abstract:During this program Fiber Materials, Inc. (FMIREG) will develop practical methods for preparing Phenolic Impregnated Carbon Ablator (PICA) materials for joining thermal protection system (TPS) segments and penetrations of the heat shield assembly. Current and future mission flight… more
Abstract:US federally funded research and international research is connecting elderberry (S. nigra and S. canadensis) to the treatment of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, AIDS, herpes simples virus HSV-1 and influenza types A and B. Many of these studies have focused on the presence of high levels 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.
