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. An Analytical Technology Platform to Identify Symbiotic Interactions Between PGPR and Root Microbiome Members from Biofuel Feedstocks

    SBC: Powers & Zahr, LLC            Topic: 22a

    The overall goal of this STTR proposal is to establish a commercial microwell technology for high-throughput screening and characterization of interactions that are critical to plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) survival and function. PGPR can be used to improve crop stress tolerance by enhancing root function; providing nutrient uptake, nitrogen fixation, hormone regulation, and suppress ...

  4. CPS: Creative Problem Solver

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: N16AT002

    Military systems operate in complex, adversarial environments where their initial planned operations are often overcome by events, but soldiers use those systems in creative ways to achieve their mission objectives. For example, complex ground robotic systems that were initially deployed for surveillance and explosive ordinance disposal have instead been used as decoys, ammunition carriers, and ot ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Dual-pH Water Splitting Device Comprising Earth-Abundant Electrocatalysts

    SBC: Avium, LLC            Topic: CT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will assess the commercial viability of using new non-precious metal catalysts to produce hydrogen by splitting water. Electrolyzers made with these new catalysts have the potential to deliver higher efficiencies and lower capital costs than currently available systems. The market for hydrogen today is $115 billion per year. Currently, hydrog ...
