  1. SBIR Phase I: Web Application to Host Individual-based, Online Academic Competition

    SBC: Interstellar Inc.            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project represents a new approach to online academic competition, one that may perhaps incite a shift in the market-based reform movement's present focus on increasing competition at the institutional level toward cultivating it at the grass roots level, that is, at the level of the individual student. Prevailing academic theory suggests that academic competition, well-structured ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Personalized Wearable Device that Learns, Adapts to Users, and Provides Enhanced Metrics and Assessments

    SBC: RITHMIO, INC.            Topic: SH

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project lies in addressing a long-standing roadblock to widespread consumer adoption of wearable tech devices for Smart Health use-cases. The primary barrier is that the current devices are woefully inaccurate when it comes to converting body-worn sensor data into activity/gesture data. A second barri ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Novel, point-of-service device for use in diagnosing the severity of anterior eye injures with an objective measure of the ocular tear film

    SBC: InnSight Technology, Inc            Topic: BM

    The broader impact of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is a paradigm shift in the initial evaluation and triage of anterior corneal injuries, through the development of a new medical device that can be used to evaluate a patient with an eye trauma. There are 2.4 million eye injuries per year in the United States. The most serious eye injury is called an open globe inj ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Simplified Pneumatic Otoscopy

    SBC: PhotoniCare, Inc.            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project, if successful, is an improvement in diagnosis and treatment of middle ear infections, a disease that affects greater than 90% of the world's population. Middle ear infections are the leading cause of hearing loss in children and responsible for more surgeries than any other childhood disease. ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Ushering in a New Paradigm of Real-Time Tactile Graphics for Visually Impaired Students

    SBC: JLG Innovations Inc.            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to create a new form of tactile (touch) graphics for blind and visually impaired (BVI) students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education. To illustrate, consider learning in a traditional mathematics classroom without being able to see the graphics presented on the board. This is the challenge that BVI students face on a daily basis in STEM clas ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Debugging Smart Cyberphysical Systems

    SBC: Rational CyPhy, Inc.            Topic: IT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is based on two trends: (a) software is quickly becoming the most complex and expensive part of engineering products like cars, medical devices, and drones and (b) existing testing and simulation techniques are inadequate for finding software bugs in early design. This leads to expensive recal ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Designing High-Strength Thermally-Stable Aluminum Casting Alloys for Cylinder Head Applications

    SBC: NANOAL LLC            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project involves development of a new family of thermally-stable, high-strength aluminum casting alloys for engine cylinder head applications. There is a strong push globally to improve internal combustion (IC) engine efficiency, through down-sizing, turbo or supercharged boost, and through the use of alternative fuels. All of these approaches increa ...
