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 I: Modular Tensioning Cartridge


    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a disruptive tow tension control technology specifically designed for the unique processing variables of composite material manufacturing to solve the limiting factor of tension control the industry currently faces. In composites manufacturing multiple materials with different tensile strengths and elasticity are combined to make ...

  2. Technical and market feasibility of kelp meal as a nutritional supplement in low-moisture foods

    SBC: VitaminSea LLC            Topic: 8.12

    The purpose of this SBIR Phase I effort is to prove the feasibility of kelp meal (latissima or "sugar kelp") as a viable, cost-effective and nutritious additive for low-moisture foods (specifically bread). Once commercialized, the manufacture and distribution of VitaminSea's kelp meal product will support local suppliers and the Maine seaweed industry.

  3. Fractal Graph Framework for an Evolving Grid Architecture

    SBC: Introspective Systems, LLC            Topic: 08a

    Enable a new electrical grid control architecture that is decentralized and flexible, allowing increased Distributed Energy Resources (DER) (generation) AND Demand-Side Management (usage) to be managed on the last mile of the grid or the ‘grid edge’. Using autonomous distributed edge intelligence software is a radical new approach to increasing the control of DER in the grid providing rea ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Thermal Insulation from Paper Mill Wastes


    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is the potential to produce superior, cost effective thermal insulation using paper mill short fiber residuals (SFR) alone or in addition to pulp from increasingly available old cardboard cartons (OCC). This will be an important step in eliminating thousands of tons of paper mill wastes being dispose ...

  7. Low mass, modular, river hydrokinetic system

    SBC: Ocean Renewable Power Company, LLC            Topic: 15

    Ocean Renewable Power Company has developed hydrokinetic technology and projects that are at present commercially viable in isolated communities with high cost of energy. These project sites are typically remote, rural communities in Alaska, which obtain all their electricity from diesel microgrids. Alaska contains 40% of the US river energy resource, and the largest recoverable river hydrokinetic ...

  8. Airfoil Controlled Glide and Directional Control

    SBC: WIZBE INNOVATIONS            Topic: S3.04

    There is a growing desire for recovery systems that provide extended cross range capability and are steerable to enable precision landing of payloads. Using a recovery system that enables landings to specific coordinates can dramatically reduce suborbital flight recovery costs, future space return flight costs in the Earth's atmosphere. It also has potential in the Mars' atmosphere where a lightwe ...

  9. Manufacturing Design of Bio-based Ceiling Tiles using Nanocellulose

    SBC: REVOLUTION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 15-NCER-06

    Suspended ceiling tiles are widely used in commercial and residential construction because they offer flexibility and easy access to utilities. Most of the available tiles absorb water, resulting in sagging, staining, and mold/mildew growth. They also contain potentially hazardous chemicals and release airborne fibers when broken or cut. Existing tiles are not durable, requiring frequent replaceme ...

  10. Guided Missile Submarine SSGN Seawater System Antifouling

    SBC: HOWELL LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N161-041

    Howell Laboratories, Inc. (HLI) is proposing a seawater Electrolytic Chlorine Generator (ECG) and will leverage our considerable experience developing and qualifying ECGs for the Navy to meet the high integrity standards of submarine sea water systems, and environmental standards. The cost savings will be compared to the current cost of cleaning SSGNs and methods used on the Virginia class and is ...
