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. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Smartphone-based Automated External Defibrillator

    SBC: Altrix Medical LLC            Topic: MD

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to save lives through the proliferation of miniaturized automated external defibrillators that attach to smartphones. Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) will kill more than 325,000 Americans this year outside of the hospital. An SCA can cause death if it is not treated in minutes. If an AED is ava ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Real-Time Pose and Grasping Affordance Estimation for Vine Crops

    SBC: ROOT AI, INC.            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project affects one of the most critical problems facing the United States agricultural industry, a shortage of available labor. This shortage has had a particularly pronounced effect on the fruit and vegetable industry, where even a brief loss of labor can result in a total loss of harvestable products. More recently, U.S. produce suppliers have bee ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Positive Effects of Feedback and Intervention for Engagement in Online Learning

    SBC: Riff Learning Inc            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase 1 project will study how communications feedback loops effect online learning, especially in group settings. The explosion of online learning experiences in recent years, in which many courses fail to engage learners or help them achieve their academic and professional goals, has put focus on the problem of engagement. Interest in online learning remains high, as it presents an opp ...
