Abstract:This Navy SBIR Phase II program looks at the updating (both structural and electronics) of the current Controlled Towed Vehicle (CTV) and the fabrication of a new mount/enclosure that will allow for the mounting of the CTV system on a standard military style wing plyon. The vehicle is primarily for… more
Abstract:Yields and operability of high performance infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs), particularly those fabricated in HgCdTe, are severely impacted by material defects introduced during growth and/or processing. Amethyst Wafer Mapping (AWM) is a materials characterization technology which when fully… more
Abstract:Type II strained layer superlattice (SLS) p-n diode arrays fabricated on domestic-source GaSb substrates are a promising route to meet the critical need within DoD for large area, large format array infrared detectors. However, current SLS material quality is limiting detector performance. A… more
Abstract:While the initial application will be for cattle, the systems developed in this project will be applicable to feeders used for other domestic species including sheep, goats, and domestic hogs. In addition, the systems developed could be used to control gates or other access for animals or objects… more
Abstract:The Anautics CourseBook Project will address three national critical issues in mathematics education the need to support standards based instruction, the need to raise student achievement scores through effective teaching, the need for instruction management through electronic curriculum guidance,… more
Abstract:The Global War on Terrorism is increasing pressure for DOD depots to expedite the return of serviceable weapon systems to the warfighter while maintaining or decreasing maintenance costs. Each military service has responded to this challenge by undertaking enterprise-wide logistics modernization… more
Abstract:Many Department of Defense (DoD) weapon systems are operating beyond their original design specifications, resulting in failures requiring unplanned parts, materials and sustainment procedures. Such U.S. Air Force weapon systems are collectively denoted as aging aircraft. A large number of aging… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will examine the feasibility of a novel synthesis process for the creation of a composite hydrophobic nano-photocatalyst. The innovation is expected to allow enhanced volatile organic chemicals (VOC) and organic pollutant adsorptions in… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Linomide is a known anti-inflammatory drug. Recently we have synthesized a new analog of Linomide, linomide-5. The objective of this proposal is to develop linomide-5 as a therapeutic for treating diabetic retinopathy (
DR) and age-related macular degeneration… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is to develop a service for the high-throughput drug screening of compounds to treat Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD). In our preliminary studies, we have identified a genetically-mo
dified mouse (Vldlr-/-) that presents with… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The objective of this proposal is to examine the efficacy of CLT-005, a novel small molecule inhibitor of Stat3, for treating inflammatory and vascular leakage of the retina of diabetic retinopathy. Retinal blood vesse
l formation is known to be mediated by the… more
Abstract:Technological advances in energy harvesting (EH) offer significant benefits to powering micro aerial vehicles (MAVs) by extending mission length and range. Currently, batteries limit the range and mission time of MAVs since the batteries contain a finite supply of energy. The proposed research is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Most cancer deaths occur from metastatic tumors rather than from the primary tumor alone. Although many of the new drugs in the past decade are directed against tumors , changes in overall cancer survival have only been
modest. Most cures of cancer are still… 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.
