  1. SBIR Phase II: Novel Proteolysis-based Tools for Metabolic Engineering

    SBC: Ginkgo BioWorks            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project aims to engineer microbes for the cost-effective production of specialty chemicals. Currently, engineered microbial strains bear mutations that increase the production of chemicals of interest by inhibiting the cell's ability to produce off pathway chemicals. These "loss-of-function" mutations are critical as they effectively channel the ...

  2. SBIR Phase II: Ultra-light,modular wind turbine

    SBC: ALTAEROS ENERGIES, INC.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will develop an ultra-light, modular wind turbine for use in buoyant airborne wind energy systems. Reduced turbine weight has a cascading effect on total airborne system mass, allowing a significantly smaller, lower cost buoyant structure to be used to access high altitude winds. At heights up to 2,000 feet winds are strong and consis ...

  3. SBIR Phase II: Transparent Molecular Photovoltaic Devices

    SBC: Ubiquitous Energy, Inc            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will enable unprecedented freedom for architectural photovoltaic adoption by maintaining the aesthetics of existing building materials and the quality of natural indoor lighting. This unique approach offers to achieve levelized photovoltaic energy costs of 0.05-0.1 $/kWhr by (1) producing 10-40% of DC building electricity at the point ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: High Speed Laser Crystallization of Aluminum Doped ZnO Nanoparticles for High Performance Transparent Conductors

    SBC: Greentech Solutions, Inc.            Topic: NM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project lies in reducing manufacturing costs in the $32 billion touchscreen module market and eliminating use of the rare-earth metal, Indium. Touchscreen modules are used in mobile phones, computers, point-of-sale terminals, and other display products. Existing methods to produce the transparent con ...

  5. SBIR Phase II: Optimization of Tapered Spiral Welding for Wind Turbine Towers

    SBC: Keystone Tower Systems, Inc.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project addresses two roadblocks to reducing the cost of wind energy: the labor-intensive construction process, and size limitations imposed by road or rail transport for turbine components. The former issue drives up manufacturing costs and reduces US competitiveness with countries with inexpensive labor, while the latter forces sub-optimize ...

  6. SBIR Phase II: Production of an Acyl Glycinate Surfactant by Fermentation

    SBC: Modular Genetics, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project is aimed at optimizing production of a bio-surfactant in preparation for commercial launch of the product. During Phase I, the company developed an engineered microorganism that synthesizes the surfactant, and a key customer confirmed the identity and purity of a sample of the surfactant. During Phase II, synthetic biology methods will be us ...

  7. SBIR Phase II: Low Cost Transparent Wireless Mesh Network Node

    SBC: netBlazr Incorporated            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Program (SBIR) Phase II project advances antenna technology and wireless network performance by developing a new kind of wireless mesh network node, i.e. integrated router, radio and antenna, and the software necessary to create a network of such devices. Networking is an important productivity resource, but can come at a high cost especially for high-data rates. Dra ...

  8. SBIR Phase II: Computer Aided Prognosis of Debilitating Disease

    SBC: vascuVis Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project proposes to develop robust and effective imaging techniques for assessment of atherosclerotic disease severity for prognostic and longitudinal use. In the United States alone, approximately 5 million patients suffer pre-stroke symptoms of which 795,000 go on to a stroke annually. About 610,000 of these are first or new strokes, while ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Development of a Media-Rich, Game-Based Social Learning Platform for Improving Math Process Skills

    SBC: Cuethink, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase 2 project proposal refines and scales the project's initial platform for improving mathematics problem solving. Math classrooms today spend most of their time practicing procedures and rarely spend time engaged in deep study of mathematical concepts. In addition, by the time students reach middle school, a number of them have either develop ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: An Innovative Robotic Jamming Gripper

    SBC: EMPIRE ROBOTICS, INC.            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will continue the development of an innovative robotic gripping technology that leverages the unique jamming behavior of granular materials to enable a device that can passively conform to objects of varying shape and then vacuum harden to grip them rigidly. These ?jamming grippers? are a unique solution for the agile gripping and manipulati ...
