Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research project undertakes a major improvement in the cost-benefit equation of learning computer programming. The approach integrates a new programming paradigm particularly suited to real-time, high-interactivity applications, with advances in… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I research project aims to develop a visual interface that allows students to construct and investigate mathematical models. This research is undertaken with the goal of creating a general-purpose environment in which students, teachers, and materials… more
Abstract:This SBIR effort will show feasibility of very thin, lightweight, integrated FPAs on a novel, flexible substrate which can double as the IR transmissive window and be readily transferred onto curved or conformal surfaces, or structural elements of a Micro-Air Vehicle (MAV). Versatilis will build and… more
Abstract:Historically, remediation efforts at DOE contaminated sites have relied on numerical models to integrate laboratory and field characterization data, predict the fate and transport behavior of contaminant plumes, design remediation protocols to mitigate contaminant migration, and analyze data from… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The broad, long term objective of this application is to overcome optical design, ergonomic and cosmetic obstacles standing in the way of innovative ophthalmic lens designs for low vision enhancement, particularly field expansion for Homonymous Hemianopsia. Phase… more
Abstract:UHF radar is used for surveillance from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). A typical transmitter must produce multi-kilowatt pulses, but the efficiency of existing transmitters is only 20 to 30 percent. Low efficiency results in transmitters that are unnecessarily large and heavy. It also taxes the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this application is to develop a comprehensive system for the acquisition and quantitative analysis of focusable (3D) virtual slides. A 3D virtual slide is a complete digital representation of a tissue specimen imaged through a microscope,… more
Abstract:The goal of this Phase II SBIR proposal is to design, build, test, and demonstrate next generation energy harvesting wireless sensors for real time load measurement and structural damage tracking on helicopters. Energy harvesting allows the realization of wireless monitoring systems that do not… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The focus of this Phase II proposal is a computer-based method called the Dynamic Assessment of Hearing Aids (DAHA). The method uses an intuitive graphical interface to record visual analogue ratings of a patient's satisfaction with various facets of his/her… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): For patients with respiratory disease the symptom of breathlessness (dyspnea) is the most frequent reason for seeking medical attention. Current methods for measuring the impact of breathlessness on activities of daily living rely on face-to-face interviews… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ongoing concerns about the management of children's pain and its treatment make pain assessment in children a high medical priority. Currently, the dominant clinical technique has children indicate pain by selecting from among a set of static, stylized facial… 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.
