  2. Integrated Cookstove-Heating-Electricity Generation for Small homes- Integrated cooking, heating, and electric power generation

    SBC: ASAT, INC.            Topic: 15NCER02

    _x000D_Currently available biomass heating/cooking stoves in Asia and in the USA do not efficiently cook food or heat houses while consuming too much fuel and emitting pollution, resulting in respiratory illnesses and premature death. ASAT specializes in the development and manufacturing of clean burning biomass stoves. In SBIR Phase I, ASAT developed a low emission, fuel efficient Integrated Heat ...

  3. Mobile Analytical Platform for Lead Detection in Drinking Water

    SBC: NANOSAFE, INC.            Topic: 16NCER4C

    As recent crises in Flint, Michigan and Washington D.C. have demonstrated, elevated lead levels (ELL’s) can very suddenly and unexpectedly be introduced to water supplies through seemingly unrelated water system alterations. Ingestion of even trace amounts of lead can have detrimental permanent health effects, especially in children; the public is rightly concerned about lead content in the wate ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Vacuum Arc Control using Arc Position Sensing and Induced Magnetic Fields

    SBC: KW Associates LLC            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will provide the first technical advancement in the specialty metals industry (manufacturers of titanium and nickel) in more than 4 decades. Specialty metals are ubiquitous in our lives, with applications from aircraft parts to medical implants, yet the vacuum arc remelting (VAR) process, the work horse for this industry, has remained relativ ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Nanotechnology enabled point of care diagnosis for pneumonia and sepsis

    SBC: Sympano, Inc.            Topic: BM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will apply the novel nanotechnology to the problem of pneumonia and sepsis. Pneumonia is the second worldwide cause of death and first among children under 5 years old, and is the number one cause of sepsis. The mainstay of treatment is empiric antibiotic selection, which increases multidrug resistant organisms and may not appropriately addre ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Development of an innovative software architecture for co-robots and smart devices to augment human capacity with regard to mundane tasking in the service sector

    SBC: Service Robotics & Technologies            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project will be to create a user-friendly, universal control system for robots and sensors that for the first time would make it possible for nontechnical service industry professionals to task and control co-robots deployed in their facility. This simplification of software for an end-user will make systems of robots as easy to control as a single r ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: A Co-creation, Cross-curricular, Standard Aligned Computer Science, Engineering, and Cybersecurity Education Technology Platform

    SBC: Codecraft Works, LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project provides student access to computer science curriculum and computational thinking skills to better prepare for college and the workforce. Unfortunately, no organized computer science curriculum is offered in majority of schools in the United States and only 1 out of 4 public high schools in the United States offer even one computer science class. Educators and administrat ...
