Award List:

Standalone Multiple Anomaly Recognition Technique

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Bill Cardoso, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $149,913.00
Abstract:
Threat materials can take many shapes and therefore this software tool must be able to perform anomaly detection instead of specific shape detection. The problem of solely relying on a database of images and a matching algorithm is that objects in the image may be shifted, rotated, or the image… More

Sintered Conductive Adhesives for HB-LED Thermal Management

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Matthew Wrosch, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,889.00
Abstract:
Continuous improvements in high-brightness light emitting diode (HB/LED) technologies have opened up the possibility for utilization of these devices for general illumination. However, before HB/LEDs can replace traditional lighting sources, improvements to their thermal management schemes,… More

SBIR Phase I: Lead-Free Sintering Adhesives for Electronics Thermal Management

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Matthew Wrosch, MS
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop and characterize lead-free adhesives with very high thermal and electrical conductivity for wide bandgap semiconductor packaging. The company will build on its IP portfolio of fluxing adhesive binder systems to formulate polymer… More

MVR - Medical Voice Recorder

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Principal Investigator: Bill Cardoso, President
Award Amount: $98,495.00
Abstract:
It is well known in the medical community that information is paramount to save lives. In the battlefield scenario, information can be the difference between life and death. The correct and timely collection of data in the event of a casualty imposes serious challenges to medical person-nel in the… More

Sintered Conductive Adhesives for High Temperature Packaging

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Michael Lee, Dr.
Award Amount: $99,990.00
Abstract:
Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and future plug-in HEVs (PHEVs) offer an alternative to traditional gas engine vehicles by providing considerably more fuel efficiency. Because the main hurdle inhibiting the widespread acceptance of these vehicles is economic, a concerted effort is underway to… More

Standalone Multiple Anomaly Recognition Technique (SMART)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Bill Cardoso
Award Amount: $968,958.56
Abstract:
Threat materials can take many shapes and therefore this software tool must be able to perform anomaly detection instead of specific shape detection. The problem of solely relying on a database of images and a matching algorithm is that objects in the image may be shifted, rotated, or the image… More

MVR - Medical Voice Recorder

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Bill Cardoso, President – (760) 752-1192
Award Amount: $749,976.00
Abstract:
It is estimated that only 1% of combat casualties arrive at the point of care with data from the point of injury. The main objective of this program is to enable evidence-based medicine by reducing the void of data. The enabling technology explored in this program leverages new developments in… More
