livestock feed.… more
Abstract:This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I research project will develop an innovative method that enables reliable feedback for plant irrigation control by direct detection of impending water deficit stress (WDS) in plants. This technology indicates water deficit stress of living… more
Abstract:"Laboratory plant micropropagation is a principal method of mass
production for many of the ornamental foliage and flowering plants sold in the U.S. The
continued success of commercial production labs is in jeopardy because of the disproportionately
high labor and operating costs compared to… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I research investigates the feasibility of engineering biomass with processing traits for ethanol production. Biomass will be transformed to produce lignin-degrading enzymes, modified with a biological switch to remain inactive during crop growth.… more

The Government is deploying a growing number of radiation detectors at U.S. borders, ports of entry and other key locations, intended to assist in the detection of a potential terrorist`s nuclear explosive device or… more
Abstract:Using manufacturing techniques recently demonstrated at Aguila Technologies, we will develop an inexpensive technology and system for rapidly producing moderate-scale production quantities of re-workable flip chip assemblies with target operating rates up to 100 GHz. The approach involves using… more
Abstract:The improved surveillance of radioactive sources used in hospitals, research centers, food irradiations plants and other fully legal and sanctioned industries is paramount to interrupt the terrorism value chain. This value chain relies on stealing radioactive sources from the legitimate before… more
Abstract:The AhlTek/Cubic Long Reach Drop-in Hotspot (LRDH) concept will revolutionize the manor in which Expanded Maritime Intercept Operations (EMIO) are conducted. With the LRDH enterprise solution, data and voice communications will be conveyed via a mobile airborne wireless mesh network that will allow… more
Abstract:The recent wave of mass casualties plaguing the public safety community showed that the incident commander s situational awareness of the first responders can be quickly and easily overwhelmed. At emergency scenes, with the overburdened first responders and unreliable communication infrastructure,… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): AIKO Biotechnology, Inc. is a start-up biotechnology company focused on developing safe and effective therapeutics for the management of pain and addiction. Opioid drugs are the standard of care in the treatment of pain

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.
