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. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  3. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  4. Large Field of View Microscope for Rapid, High-Resolution Imaging

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: NA

    In this SBIR effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop and deliver a high-resolution (< 1.2 micron) microscope that can rapidly (< 60 seconds) image a large field of view (> 1 cm2). The instrument will provide a wide array of imaging modalities, including brightfield, darkfield, fluorescence, quantitative phase, and Rheinberg imaging. In Phase II, Nikira Labs will fabricate, test, and deliver a ...

  5. Space weather-based position error maps for TEC- OnLine (SpoT-On)

    SBC: Space Environment Technologies            Topic: 831

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The Space weather-based Position error maps for TEC - On-line (SpoT-On) project will use GPS-GNSS based TEC data, integrated into the Global Assimilation of Ionospheric Measurements (GAIM) operational system at the Utah State University Space Weather Center to produce an order of magnitude improved TEC position correction maps. These will be publicly and globally accessible. A ...

  6. Single-Mast Transmit-Receive Antenna for Long-Range 4- 5.5 MHz Coastal HF Radars

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The U.S. High Frequency Radar (HFR) network contains more than 140 coastal stations that provide hourly two-dimensional coastal surface currents. Approximately one-third of these are Long Range (LR) systems that transmit in the 4–5.5 MHz frequency band with offshore ranges and resolutions of 160-220 km and 6 km, respectively. Currents provided by this network have numerous ap ...

  7. Low Cost, High Precision Water Monitoring System

    SBC: Swift Engineering, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: This paper proposes development of a low-cost water monitoring system wirelesslynetworked to upload data to FieldKit for cloud based data visualization and validation. This will enable citizen scientists to collect a variety of parameters including conductivity, temperature, depth, and ocean noise measurements on an adhoc basis while contributing to a large data repository whic ...

  8. Adaptive mask flow photometer

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used t ...

  9. Air Movement Efficiency Monitor

    SBC: XCSPEC, Inc.            Topic: NA

    The Air Movement Efficiency Monitor is composed of small, inexpensive Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) sensors, connected wirelessly to the Internet, and distributed through a building to measure pressure readings at key points. We consider this a “FitBit” for a building’s air-movement efficiency, employing many of the sensors used by a fitbit – temperature, humidity, acceleration. We ...

  10. Visual Part Identification, Localization, and Manipulation with Deep Networks

    SBC: SYMBIO ROBOTICS, INC.            Topic: NA

    During Phase I, Symbio Robotics conducted initial development of a robust, real-time, high-performance, low-cost perception engine made possible by recent advances in deep learning. This system identifies parts in 2D or 3D images and determines their six degree-of-freedom poses, producing a full description of a scene in a fraction of a second. For this technology to be practically useful in manuf ...
