Award List:

SNP-based Desktop Biometric Device for Rapid, Low-cost Verification of Identity and Kinship and Confirmation of Identity by Physical Traits

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Steven L. Armentrout
Award Amount: $99,037.00
Abstract:
DNA has the potential to provide vast amounts of biometric information. However, the current method of analyzing DNA - which produces biometric signatures from sequences of "junk" DNA called short tandem repeats (STRs) - falls far short of realizing this potential. STR signatures are… More

SBIR Phase I: Nano-scale Engineering via Grid-scale Computing: Designing, Optimizing and Manufacturing Cancer Therapeutics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Steven L. Armentrout, PhD
Award Amount: $99,890.00
Abstract:
This award is funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111-5). This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of engineering a new class of cancer therapeutics. They will be constructed from DNA nanostructures that can be… More

Componentized Models as a Service (CMaaS)

Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Steven L. Armentrout, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,419.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project, which will conclude with a Technical Readiness Level of 3-4, will demonstrate the feasibility of the Componentized Models as a Service (CMaaS) system, a web-centric software service architecture that will dramatically improve the manner… More

Software Infrastructure to Enable Modeling & Simulation as a Service (M&SaaS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Steven L. Armentrout, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $599,993.00
Abstract:
This SBIR Phase 2 project will produce a software service infrastructure that enables most modeling and simulation (M&S) activities

Virtual HPC Cluster Provisioning in the Cloud

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Steven Armentrout, Dr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
Because the Department of Energy (DOE) must address questions of national importance that do not admit to direct experimentation, high-performance computing (HPC) clusters provide critical simulation capability for the DOE mission. Indeed, HPC clusters are the primary computing resources used by… More
