Abstract:If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids. Not only is the wild fishery from which these products are extracted… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop of a technology that allows the stabilization of live probiotic bacteria for incorporation into food systems outside the dairy case. A novel microencapsulation solution is proposed that involves pumping viscous liquids… more
Abstract:The aquaculture industry currently consumes 70 percent of the global production of fish oil and 35 percent of total fishmeal. The salmon and trout fish farming sectors alone consume over one half of the world¿s fish oil. And if fish farming continues to grow at the current rate, then by 2010 the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant):
We are developing means to reduce errors in Dipole Source Localization (DSL). DSL is commonly used to analyze brain waves for clinical and research purposes.
It is known from our work and the work of others that the models used to compute the DSL are not… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prenatal exposure to alcohol is the leading causing of birth defects in the United States. Recent studies show prevalence rates in the US may be as high as 1% of live births (Burd L, Cotsonas-Hassler, et al., 2003). This means that each year, as many as 39,000… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The prescription of pharmaceuticals with teratogenic properties has increased rapidly over the past decade, with the heightened use of Accutane, thalidomide and other birth-defect inducing drugs. The CDC found the warni
ng symbol in use at the time of the study… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Digoxin is the first line pharmacologic therapy for CHF and AF. Digoxin increases cardiac contractility and blocks conduction through the AV node slowing the ventricular response to AF and thus slowing the rate of the beating ventricles permitting more time for… more
Abstract:This effort is based on the outcome of a successful Phase I project that demonstrated the feasibility of generating logic pattern-based, OS-platform-independent, signatures for malicious program logic and detecting its presence within much larger binary modules. The detection (and localization) of a… more
Abstract:2LR proposes to develop a malicious source code scanner that can flag sections of potentially `bad' source code that is vulnerable to exploitation or may contain latent malicious content. This effort will evaluate and compare current methods for detecting malicious code with a novel method based on… more
Abstract:This SBIR effort proposes to develop tools that enable a capability in tamper proof source code. The proposed methods will protect against several modes of attack including malicious programmers, source code viruses, and system worms. The tools and techniques proposed are based on the fundamental… more
Abstract:78684 The near-term requirements of scientific visualization and collaboration software, as well as the anticipated demands of multimedia end-users, argue for dramatic advances in workstation throughput. In particular, desktop network interfaces must accommodate the bandwidth available on current… more
Abstract:Accacia International has produced a potentially powerful system for the detection of a wide variety of biothreat agents. Accacia International proposes to design and prototype a compact, handheld fluorescence polarization based sensor capable of detecting biowarfare agents. Accacia International,… more
Abstract:The company's reformable, reusable tooling tooling will be provided within a complete composites manufacturing cell that can substantially reduce the time, cost and effort associated with conventional or alternative tooling while providing the flexibility for repair, design and prototyping, and… more
Abstract:78953 In the fabrication of powder-in-tube (PIT) Nb3Sn superconductors, needed for high energy physics applications, the particle size distribution limits the final filament size to which the strand can be drawn. In previous work, a virtual impactor (VI) aerosol particle sizing process was… more
Abstract:We propose to develop novel hardware-centric "initialization" technology that enables unprecedented computational power for the solution of general optimization problems. In Phase I, we will develop a hardware prototype of an "initializer" equipped with our technology, and conduct simulation studies… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term goal of Healthy Dining Finder is to help reduce the prevalence of risk factors related to obesity and nutrition-related diseases by increasing the availability of, and information about, healthier meals at
restaurants nationwide. With the… more
Abstract:Leishmaniasis has significant impact on military and civilian populations throughout the Asia-Africa region, including Afghanistan and Iraq. There are currrentlly no proper field-deployable diagnostic tools for the key form, cutaneous leishmaniasis. Development of an assay which detects cutaneous… more
Abstract:The proposed research will demonstrate the utility of hydrogel nanoparticle aggregates as bandages for post-debridement vesicant injuries. Dehydrated hydrogel nanoparticles in powder form are applied to the surface of a wound. The nanoparticles aggregate immediately and form a continuous hydrogel… 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.
