Abstract:War fighters face increased risk in the post 9-11 era of expanding terrorist activity and urban military conflicts. The problem is compounded by complex modern urban areas and modern rules of engagement often preclude the use of wide area offensive tactics. Consequently dismounted forces are… more
Abstract:The proposed Phase I SBIR work is focused on development and testing of a continuous process for mixing of binary nanopowders in a micro-mixer system. The main focus will be on safe mixing of aluminum and bismuth trioxide or iron oxide nanopowders in water for their application as percussion… more

Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project aims to develop a microbead-based suspension array product for molecular diagnostics (genetic screening) that can make multiplexed measurements in near-real-time without the need for sample amplification and fluorescent labeling… more
Abstract:Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies are a new class of infectious diseases, as the causative agent appears to be an altered form of a normal cellular protein capable of self-replication. While these diseases originally gained attention as food-borne illnesses, it has become apparent that… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant) A problem exists. The quantity and quality of trained first responders in rural areas is insufficient. EMS first responders in rural areas need better (more accessible, relevant, up-to-date) HAZMAT training that c

Abstract:Homeland Security is often compromised by a lack of inter-communications between citizens
and government agencies by either a lack of access or by traditional communications failure
during natural hazard-disasters. Reliable Communications during Rural Disasters addresses
this critical issue. Talus-D… more
Abstract:Development and production of semi-permeable and permselective polymer membranes can fill a critical need for standard reference materials for AVLAG, CBART, and IPE acquisition programs. Optimizing the permselectivity of tri-block copolymers to specific chemical agents, non-traditional agents, and… more
Abstract:The ultimate goal of this project is to assist school personnel to better understand the balance between classroom technology needs and system security by creating training modules to address specific areas. The first objective is the development of a survey tool, the Education Security Practices… more
Abstract:The rising incidence of obesity in children in the U.S. contributes to obesity in adulthood. A strong correlation has been described between obesity and chronic diseases. Therefore, the overall goal of our project is to prevent the development of chronic diseases by affecting improved nutrition to… more
Abstract:There is a need for an effective, efficient way to monitor the disease status of production facilities while minimizing the stress caused to an animal by blood sampling and other invasive diagnostic techniques. The purpose of this work is to develop an air sampler and collection media that will… more
Abstract:Develop a videogame for the middle school science classroom. Embedd science concepts into a virtual world where students explore the relationships between them. Ensure that game design creates a virtual world where scientific experimentation can be called Â¿play.Â¿ Wrap the videogame in a… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): A science and health curriculum using a video game as a centerpiece of instruction? Is it a risk? Or is it an effective way to reach and teach youth at risk for obesity? This proposal is to design, develop, and test a w

Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project combines nanotechnology and biotechnology to develop a new type of biomimetic sensing structure for monitoring air quality in buildings as a part of a smart system to enhance security by preventing current and future… more
Abstract:The United States Special Operations Command's Special Boat Teams are routinely exposed to an environment prone to injury and the long-term effects of repetitive impact stress. The primary cause for injury and long-term degenerative musculoskeletal effects is the repetitive impacts incurred as the… more
Abstract:The human infectivity of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is unclear. Current diagnostics rely upon post-mortem examination and late-term disease. Migratory B cells are emerging as likely candidates for blood-borne infectivity, and therefore, a logical target for sensitive antemortem diagnosis. We… more
Abstract:Prion diseases are unique, in that their exceptionally long incubation period makes it difficult to diagnose prior to end-stage disease. While many diagnostic assays for infectious diseases rely upon detection of specific immunity, prion diseases apparently provoke no detectable immune response. … more
Abstract:Most state and regional tourism promotion and marketing efforts focus on a few major attractions and well-traveled areas. As a result, most travelers follow the major highways and often miss unique and interesting communities and sites located in more remote areas. Digital documentation of these… more
Abstract:Originally believed to be due to a unique viral infection, it is now believed that prion diseases or Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies (TSEs) are the result of a new, infectious protein (PrPSc). Definitive antemortem tests for TSEs are lacking, primarily due to an inability to expand the… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project will develop and test an electronic field guide for North America that will facilitate bird identification in the field combining images, audio, geographic information, and descriptive data. The system will include 1000 birds of North… more
Abstract:Arsenic contamination of groundwater is a problem facing many areas of the United States and the rest of the world. This problem has been highlighted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency¿s decision to mandate reductions in the acceptable level of arsenic in drinking water from 50 ppb to 10… more
Abstract:NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: There is no inexpensive End-Grain Sandwich Core Material for Composites today. Balsa, as an end-grain cellulosic core, has had no competition since 1945. Balsa core is grown in Ecuador and needs to be imported to the U.S.A as well as all other countries. The introduction of an… 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.
