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. STTR Phase I: Silicon nanowire arrays for the sensitive detection and identification of lung cancer by a blood sample

    SBC: Advanced Silicon Group            Topic: S

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is the possibility to revolutionize the treatment of cancer through more sensitive and specific cancer biomarker detection. 1.66 million Americans were diagnosed with cancer in 2014 alone, of which 585,720 died. The sum of all health care costs in 2011 for cancer in the US was $88.7 billion. ...

  2. SBIR Phase I: Affordable On-Demand Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: ThinkIncubate            Topic: MN

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a proof-of-concept for a new approach in the field of Additive Manufacturing (AM). Pioneered few decades ago, AM has the potential to enable the manufacture of products from the inside out, enabling the production of lighter products with higher structural integrity than is possible with conventional subtractive manufacturing techniques. However, legacy AM ap ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Development of an electrochemical C-C bond forming reaction

    SBC: SNAPDRAGON CHEMISTRY, INC.            Topic: CT

    This SBIR Phase I project is proposing the development of a new electrochemical method for the manufacture of chemicals of interest to pharmaceutical, agricultural and fine chemical producers. New chemical manufacturing technologies are needed to reduce the environmental costs and the risk posed by traditional chemical manufacturing technologies. Flow technology is reducing the hazard, environment ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Low cost portable system for the rapid detection and drug resistance profiling of Tuberculosis

    SBC: Impedx Diagnostics Inc.            Topic: BM

    This Phase I SBIR project is directed at developing a portable, sensitive, and affordable device to detect M. tuberculosis (Mtb) in sputum samples and simultaneously determine the multidrug resistance profile of the pathogen, all within 3 days of sputum collection (It takes more than 6 weeks using current technology). By significantly reducing the time to detect viable Mtb and obtain its drug resi ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Closed-Loop Lithium Reduction of Pure Scandium Metal

    SBC: INFINIUM, INC.            Topic: MN

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to reduce the cost, and improve commercialization prospects, for new light-weight scandium-containing alloys with extraordinary strength, weldability, fitness for 3-D printing, and new shape memory and other properties. At $3500-4000/kg (6-7 times the price of silver), the price of scandium metal ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Development and Testing of a Mini Wearable Device that Doctors Can use to Know if it is too Soon or Not to Send A premature Baby Home

    SBC: BrainStem Biometrics Inc.            Topic: SH

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project would be to make it safer to send premature babies home after their stay in the NICU. They will be more likely to grow and thrive while they regain valuable bonding time with their parents. The risk of having to readmit babies would go down. Complications and maybe even SIDS could be reduced, ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: Hardness Strength and Ductility Tester for Field Assessment of Structures

    SBC: Massachusetts Materials Technologies LLC            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project will support the technological refinement and concomitant commercialization of the first accurate and portable instrument that can perform in the field nondestructive test for hardness, strength and ductility of existing infrastructure. The material properties measured include yield strength, work hardening exponent and ultimate tensi ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: An embedded and in-context professional learning platform for math problem-solving instruction

    SBC: Cuethink, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This project proposes to develop an innovative approach to improve and sustain math educators' problem solving teaching skills. Despite the expectations placed on math teachers by the Common Core State Standards, most are insufficiently prepared to teach students how to become critical thinkers. Much of this problem is due to limited pedagogical skills of teachers in providing adequate problem sol ...
