The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. SBIR Phase II: Sketch-based interaction for designing for laser cutters

    SBC: Blank Slate Systems            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop innovative design software that enables people of all ages to easily create blueprints for production with laser cutters, CNC routers, and 3D printers. These machines hold the potential to transform American manufacturing by enabling anyone to design and build physical items. However, design software remains a bottleneck. This project addresses this problem ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Real-Time Biosensor for Measuring Hazardous Chemical Contaminants in Ground Water

    SBC: OptiEnz Sensors, LLC            Topic: BC

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is to increase the efficiency of identifying, mapping, and remediating water sources contaminated with chlorinated solvents. Chlorinated solvents are used in vast quantities as solvents and degreasing agents, and in the dry cleaning industry. The necessity of monitoring chlorinated solvents i ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: A Question of Numbers: Numeracy, Learning, and Learning about Learning

    SBC: Simbulus, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project aims to answer the presidential call to "create digital tutors that are as effective as personal tutors." More than any other subject, mathematical learning is cumulative, and as students fall behind their classmates, new material becomes less comprehensible and they can face an ever-widening gap to their peers. Formative assessment ( ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: Regenerative Freeze Suppression for Thermally Bound Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: REBOUND TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: EI

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project includes peak demand relief for utilities, reduced freezer operating costs for retail stores, and natural refrigerants for regulators. Unfortunately, no state-ofthe- art system simultaneously addresses all these issues. Industrial/commercial batteries remain unaffordable, refrigeration costs account for 60% of a retail store?s electricity bil ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Using microbial genetic data to improve oil production efficiency and reduce environmental impact

    SBC: UC2            Topic: BC

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will be to increase the efficiency of domestic oil production. Using current methods, the oil industry is able to extract only 5% of the known hydrocarbon from shale formation. This represents more than $500B of potential oil and gas that cannot be economically produced for the US economy. Th ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Three-Dimensional Computational Optical Imaging Sensor

    SBC: Double Helix Optics Inc            Topic: EI

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project stems from the possibility of obtaining real-time precise 3D depth information using a miniature robust sensor system opening up a myriad of opportunities for commercial application. Imaging sensors are now widespread and inexpensive, as is computing power, already an integral part of most cameras. The 3D imaging sensor to be developed enable ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Measuring Aqueous Metal Concentrations with the Chemometer

    SBC: Access Sensor Technologies LLC            Topic: BC

    The broader impact/commercial impact of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project is in promoting the protection of human health, the environment, and our nation's natural resources by providing new sensors that enable fast, accurate, cost-effective sampling and analysis tools to monitor pollution and exposure. The innovations developed here will allow for the rapid identific ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Reducing Recidivism Through Technology: Connecting People Released from Incarceration to Resources and Communities in the 21st Century

    SBC: Humboldt Consultants LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to reduce recidivism using a software system developed to elicit positive behavioral changes through an educational training and support system. The United States has the highest rate of incarceration in the world, with hundreds of thousands of people annually released from prison and jail and recidivism rates as high as one out of every two people released retur ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: A Thermal Barrier Coating with Low Thermal Conductivity for use in Turbine Engines

    SBC: Thermatin Industries LLC            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project addresses the need for improved thermal barrier coating (TBC) technology. TBCs are advanced materials applied as a thin layer to the surface of substrates, often metals, to protect them from prolonged heat loads. The avionics industry (representing a TBC market of $715 million) has set benchmark standards for the next generation of gas-turbin ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Robotic System for the Sorting of Construction and Demolition Recyclables

    SBC: COGNITIVE ROBOTICS LLC            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project will be to change the fundamental economics of the recycling process. Analysis suggests that the system can drive the cost of recycling
 to levels competitive with, or below those of, landfilling, drastically changing the waste landscape. No longer will recycling be driven by government mandate, and grow slowly only because of public ed ...
