Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Indocyanine Green (ICG) and Sodium Fluorescein (SF) are fluorescent dyes used clinically in eye fundus imaging, primarily for detecting vascular abnormalities in the retina and choroid, which is the layer behind the ret
ina. It is used with the Heidelberg Retinal… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diabetes mellitus afflicts 20.8 million people, or 7% of the population, in the United States. Fifteen percent, or 2.4 million people, will develop diabetic foot ulcers in their life time. Diabetic foot ulceration and i
nfections are a major cause of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. Despite its prevalence, current treatment options are limited and surviving stroke is still associated with serious morbidity issues. The most recent ther
apy for ischemic stroke, Alteplase, was… more
Abstract:Superconducting radio frequency (SRF) power couplers are used to introduce RF power into evacuated accelerating cavities typically operating at a few degrees Kelvin. These couplers are historically a problematic component that adversely affects the cost and reliability of the entire accelerator… more
Abstract:This proposed project is for the experimental operation and performance review of a pilot-scale anaerobic digester and effluent treatment system for small dairy farms. This would be one of the first digesters built on a dairy farm with a herd size of 50-100 heads. Although digesters are considered… more
Abstract:Avenda Systems proposes a voice over IP security architecture and solution called VoIP Inter-domain Security Architecture (VISA). VISA system will provide the architectural foundations to secure voice traffic within a security domain (intra-domain) and across a security domain (inter-domain). This… more
Abstract:AVID LLC, in partnership with Dr. Rick Lind of the University of Florida, proposes development of an integrated design suite for flapping wing MAVs. Such a tool fills a void present in the existing MAV development process, where new concepts are rarely subject to rigorous engineering analysis and… more
Abstract:AVID LLC and Profs. Neu, Philen, and Stilwell of Virginia Tech propose development of an artificial fish using Flexible Matrix Composite actuator technology for propulsion and control. This innovative approach to fin actuation uses structurally integrated hydraulic actuators to avoid the losses… more
Abstract:The focus of this proposal is the aftermath of a successful missile intercept, where the resulting fragments fall toward land or sea. This study will develop an approach to quantify shape parameters in a useful way to feed to a designed algorithm set governing lift and drag. The goal will be to… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia in the elderly, with more than 4.5 million Americans currently suffering from the disease. Clinical management of AD is complicated by lack of effective meth
ods for early and accurate diagnosis of the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Dementia, with its most prevalent subforms Alzheimer's disease (AD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), and vascular dementia, is a very substantial medical and societal problem. The emergence of many drugs and drug can
didates that interfere with the disease… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Dementia associated with PD (PDD) is common (affecting up to 80% of patients long-term) and highly disabling. Informative biomarkers are urgently needed to understand the pathology of PDD, to improve the early detection
of cognitive deficits and to facilitate… more
Abstract:While Strike Force Interoperability (SFI) has long been a complex and challenging task that complexity is dramatically increasing. A number of factors account for this including the increasing integration and intercommunication of warfare systems components, the ad hoc and dynamic composition of… more
Abstract:U.S. Army helicopter fatigue sensitive dynamic components are required to maintain structural integrity throughout their operational life cycle. Typical metal alloy fatigue sensitive dynamic components require the presence of surface compressive residual stresses to inhibit the initiation and… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The proposed study utilizes novel electronics and microfabrication techniques to create scalable, in-vitro Multielectrode Array (MEA) technologies. This research will enable rapid advancements in the study of neural int
eractions and in the understanding and… more
Abstract:The proliferation of small, unmanned systems has established a nascent market for small, lightweight power plants, including both internal combustion engines and turbine systems. Recently, researchers have successfully developed breakthrough technologies in this market, such as the Meyer Nutating… 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.
