Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Ultraviolet Resonance Raman Spectroscopy is a powerful technique for detection, identification, and study of a number of chemical and biological species relevant to public health, such as carcinogens and biological warfare agents. The purpose of this SBIR… more
Abstract:The Navy needs a compact extended range underwater imaging system that can image through > 6 attenuation lengths with 0.25" resolution. Present systems are limited by scattering to ~ 5 attenuation lengths. To meet the need, we propose a compact, adaptive raster scanner, using a doubled Yb fiber… more
Abstract:The MDA and other elements of the Department of Defense (DoD) have multiple applications for high power laser sources, including deployment in space where power, size, weight and refueling logistics are issues. Applications include acquisition and identification of missiles or other threats,… more
Abstract:New technologies are required to support MDA requirements in the area of high performance UV/VIS/NIR scene projectors for laboratory closed-loop testing of sensors and their associated control and image processing systems. Plasma display technology, currently popular for commercial television, has… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An accurate physical model of a protein, based on its atomic coordinate data and created by rapid prototyping technology, is an effective new tool to communicate the essential details of a new structure to the biochemists and molecular biologists who are working… more
Abstract:In 2001 the US EPA lowered the maximum contaminant level for arsenic in drinking water from 50 ppb to 10 ppb. This change is expected to impact 10 percent of the nation's drinking water systems; the vast majority of those impacted are small, rural water suppliers. New approaches, particularly simple… more
Abstract:72679-Radioactively contaminated surfaces within Department of Energy and commercial nuclear facilities endanger workers and create problems with waste handling and disposal. Current methods for removing these radiological contaminants are expensive, use hazardous chemicals or dangerous rotating… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In 2001 the US EPA lowered the maximum contaminant level for arsenic in drinking water from 50 ppb to 10 ppb, based on studies indicating the lower limit would prevent a significant number of cancer deaths and other illnesses. The EPA estimates that there are… more
Abstract:72275-With the ever-present threat of terrorist attacks on American soil, it is increasingly important to monitor pre-nuclear-event warning signs and provide post-nuclear-event assessment for use in consequent management and emergency response. In particular, major urban centers are potential… more
Abstract:In this three Phase program, ADA Technologies proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel, active trace explosives sampling system/method that will be easily adapted for use with existing commercially available explosive detection sensors. This will lead to a generic-interface sampling device that… more
Abstract:In a ship's bilge, water mixes with oils, cleaners, and other contaminants to form a complex wastewater that can be harmful to the marine environment. Naval vessels carry oil/water separators (OWS) to prevent discharging oily wastes overboard. These OWS systems can remove oil from water; however,… more
Abstract:NOAA collects meteorological measurements in open ocean and coastal marine environments from research vessels, data buoys and commercial ships for use in numerical weather prediction, global climate change research, and severe storm identification. The current system cost for robust marine… more
Abstract:The release of mercury into the environment via combustion processes has become an issue of concern for the US and the entire world. Major sources either are regulated or are under review to develop regulations to reduce emissions. ADA Technologies has successfully demonstrated the performance of… more
Abstract:Fine water mist has been shown to be an effective fire suppression option in a number of applications, including oxidizer fires, such as could result from an incident with hydrogen peroxide. ADA Technologies, Inc. and the Colorado School of Mines will collaborate in the development of a novel system… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION: The overall objective of this multiphase SBIR project is to develop and market an economical Dental waterline system that prevents biofilm formation and growth. Once a biofilm forms on a wetted surface, microorganisms are continuously released from and recruited to the biofilm,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): At present, children with upper-limb deficiencies have few choices of prosthetic prehensors available to them. For many of these children, body-powered devices offer a better--or in some cases the only--rehabilitative option over myoelectric units, but the… more
Abstract:75570-Coal gasification is a promising technology for reducing U.S. dependence on foreign energy sources. However, the development of efficient and cost effective pollution control technologies will be required before coal gasification can be introduced on a commercial scale. In particular, the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Existing prosthetic shoulder modules control humeral flexion either by applying light frictional drag or by operating in one of two discrete user-selectable modes: free-swing or fully locked. In many cases, limited functionality forces users to move in peculiar… 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.
