Abstract:Advanced Materials Technology, Inc (AMTI) responds to the Topic X9 entitled "Propulsion and Propellant Storage" under subtopic X9.01, "Long Term Cryogenic Propellant Storage, Management, and Acquisition". The proposed program will focus on developing new multifunctional insulation materials that… more
Abstract:Helium plays several critical rolls in spacecraft propulsion. High pressure helium is commonly used to pressurize propellant fuel tanks. Helium cryocoolers can be used to sub-cool and thereby densify cryogenic propellants such as liquid hydrogen (LH2) and liquid oxygen (LO2). The use of densified… more
Abstract:This proposal presents a Phase II SBIR project to produce prototypes of the automated high precision, low disperse rate powder disseminator for the US Army, that has been successfully designed and analyzed in the Phase I project. In the development of the sensitive detecting agent, we need to… more
Abstract:Voice transformation is altering one person's voice such that it sounds like from another speaker. This can be done by mapping the voice quality and speaking style of the source speaker to that of the target speaker. In this proposal for Phase I, we will investigate state-of-the-art technologies… more
Abstract:In Phase I of the proposed program we plan to demonstrate the feasibility of manufacturing bladetrack components using an approach that will result in substantial reductions in cost and cycle time compared with conventional 2-D lay-up methods. The approach involves use of a 3-D fiber preform with… more
Abstract:Strength, durability and reliability of commonly used bonded and bolted composite-to-metal structural joints suffer from sharp geometry variations, mismatch of elastic properties, coefficients of thermal expansion and thermal conductivity of the adherends, altogether causing high stress… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This competing continuation SBIR application proposes to complete a regulatory approvals program on a set of next-generation sleep disorder monitoring sensors. Advanced Medical Electronics (AME) completed in June of 200

Abstract:This project develops a device which performs optimal face recognition in a miniature unobtrusive device that is built around a common aperture imaging camera with a convenient visible light camera.
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): As the population ages, chronic care becomes increasingly important. The contrast to acute care is significant: a physician can often address acute problems with prescriptions and/or procedures, but this is often not th
e case for chronic problems that persist… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Advanced Medical Electronics Corporation (AME) proposes to develop a miniature portable electroencephalograph (EEG) recorder that can be easily used in the home to collect data for longitudinal surveys of the elderly. T
he device will be capable of using new dry… more
Abstract:Lightweight portable biometrics screening tools are needed to accurately and rapidly screen and manage the identities of individuals at the scene of an incident. Such tools are preferably not dependant on local infrastructure, which may be compromised, and should operate in both land (e.g. border… more
Abstract:This Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer research develops a device to allow a blind person or individual with significant vision impairment to sense the location and movements of people in the immediate area. The device will utilize a new low cost and miniature thermal imaging sensor… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Advanced Medical Electronics Corporation (AME) proposes to develop a tool for pulmonologists and respiratory therapists specifically designed for the care of home ventilator-dependant pediatric patients. Following a cri

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.
