Abstract:This project addresses the problem of increasing biomass feed to electricity-generating power furnaces with the goal of reducing GHGs. Currently wood pellets are burned, but the ash content and lower energy density limit their use. Lignin pellets have approximately the same energy content as coal,… more
Abstract:This project allows pulp and paper mills to extract a purified lignin stream from their recovery process. By making up the fuel value of this extracted lignin the mill remains carbon neutral. A power company that can replace coal with lignin achieves a significant GHG reduction. The sequential… more
Abstract:The Insensitive Munitions (IM) compliant initiation system uses a unique approach to initiate the TATB. The initiation systems departure from standard approaches is the design uses all the stored energy as compared to standard approaches that use a small percentage of the stored energy with the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Multiple sequence alignment (MSA) is a core element of bioinformatics, comparative genomics, phylogenetics, molecular, and structural biology. Several excellent software tools for MSA construction are heavily used by th
e biomedical community; however,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Renal transplantation has been a clinical reality for nearly 40 years. Transplantation is the only effective solution for organ end-stage renal failure. Long term renal function following transplantation has been shown
to be better when kidneys are not subjected… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In an effort to reduce the use of animals for toxicity testing, companies have developed in vitro skin models or equivalents to replace the Draize skin irritation test. This development has been further pushed by a Euro
pean Union regulation that will prohibit… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Available methods for molecular structure determination, based primarily on x-ray crystallography and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) solution methods, have had limited success on the insoluble proteins that are critic
al to biological function. Various recent… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase I project will demonstrate that a novel thermodynamic cycle could enable a 50% improvement in conversion efficiency from geothermal and concentrated solar sources when the two are synergistically combined.
The broader/commercial impact of the proposed project could be as much as a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): According to the American Diabetes Association, there are more than 16 million people in the United States with known diabetes. Diabetic patients commonly demonstrate impaired wound healing. Approximately 20 percent of
patients with diabetes will develop foot… more
Abstract:Advanced Core Technologies brings 3 advanced competencies together to identify, foster, and deploy technologies promising reliability enhancing materials and manufacturing innovations. Self-learning search methods, sophisticated information association techniques, and stochastic forecaasting… more
Abstract:The availability of ultra-high speed imaging equipment capable of frame rates up to 1 GHz has opened the potential for measurement of full-field three-dimensional deformation data during highly dynamic events by employing the digital image correlation method. However, due to the characteristics of… more
Abstract:A user-friendly software package for rapid fatigue evaluation of specific scalable flaw geometries, as well as stable tearing after crack length reaches a specified size, is being developed. The package will employ modified CRACK3D code and use VCCT with 10-noded tetrahedral elements to determine… more
Abstract:The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility and performance of compact, efficient, radiation hardened laser technology for LADAR detection, ranging and range-gated imaging applications. Traditional laser designs exhibit modest wall plug efficiencies. They are limited in… more
Abstract:Kigre proposes to develop and integrate unique radiation hardened, athermal, 1.5um laser gain materials and pumping architectures into high performance optical laser amplifier devices for SATCOM applications. The approach employs long life radiation tolerant pump diodes configured for direct side… more
Abstract:This SBIR Phase II project will result in Nitek Inc. commercializing high power, large area, UVC-LED Lamps based on a novel vertically conducting geometry that is arbitrarily scalable. AlInGaN based deep UVC-LEDs (Ar
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.
