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. IMAGINE: Imagery Management through Agile, Geo-Interactive, Natural Embodiment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: NGA11002

    Overhead imagery analysts employ computer-based software as Electronic Light Tables (ELTs), to perform detailed analysis of aerial images in search of elements of interest. Conventional display design for ELT software requires analysts to take their eyes away from the image they are analyzing to perform routine functions. This interaction overhead typically leads to losses in visual momentum and i ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Extracting Valuable Information Automatically from Objects with Surface Impressions via Photographs and Interactive Digital Surrogates

    SBC: Learning Sites, Inc.            Topic: EI

    The innovation, CUNAT (CUNeiform Automated Translator) attacks significant problems in a discipline wedded to conservative manual methods. Ancient Mesopotamian legal treatises, Egyptian medical records, and Roman political accounts--telling us exactly what happened in the words of the very people whose actions formed our history - languish untranslated, because there are too many of them, translat ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Making and programming robots in early childhood education

    SBC: KinderLab Robotics, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase II project focuses on robot systems designed for early childhood education (preK-2). There is increasing research and applications for educational robotics, but little attention are focused on the foundational years. The early childhood segment is underserved because there are few available platforms for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education that are developmen ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: Integrated Voltage Regulators for Small Footprint, Efficient Power Delivery in Mobile Electronics

    SBC: Lion Semiconductor            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project seeks to develop integrated voltage regulators (IVR) that are 10 times smaller than existing solutions. Power management ICs (PMICs) are chips in mobile electronic devices that deliver power from the battery to different chips (e.g., processor, memory). Existing PMICs use discrete board-level inductors to efficiently deliver power, bu ...
