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: Development and Validation of Low-Cost Natural Gas Leak Detection Sensors and Analytics for Drone-Based and Handheld Deployments

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is the rapid, cost-effective detection of natural gas leakage to improve public safety, mitigate global climate change, and decrease product loss. Natural gas is the largest provider of power in the United States. However, more than 80 Tg of leakage occurs at well pads and pipelines during production alone. Such leakage poses a public health ...

  2. STTR Phase I: Rational design of highly sensitive and selective chemical sensors using structural color

    SBC: DrinkSavvy, Inc.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be the development of sensor-embedded "smart" drinkware (i.e., stirrers, straws and cups) to actively alert consumers prior to consumption of a "spiked" beverage, and thus provide a proactive way to prevent drug-facilitated sexual assault. This sensor technology is based on "smart" molecularly im ...

  3. STTR Phase II: Autonomous Landing of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems onto Moving Platforms

    SBC: Planck Aerosystems, Inc.            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project will enable Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS or drones) to safely and reliably operate from moving vehicles and moving vessels at sea. There is an immediate need for this capability in many industries. In commercial fishing, drones will replace manned aircraft for fish-finding operations, radically reducing cost and risk. In maritime security, dr ...

  4. STTR Phase II: Nanostraw-mediated Immune Cell Reprogramming

    SBC: Navan Technologies, Inc.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project will be to develop a new tool to safely and nondestructively deliver genes and other materials into large numbers cells at the same time. New forms of therapies for cancer and other intractable diseases take advantage of a patient's own cells, re-engineered in the laboratory to target a tumor ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Laser-Enabled Massively Parallel Die Transfer for?LED Displays

    SBC: Uniqarta, Inc.            Topic: PH

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to reduce the power consumption of display and lighting products by 90%. It will do so by enabling the pervasive use of light emitting diodes (LEDs) in such products. LEDs consume substantially less power than other display/lighting technologies and also offer benefits such as superior pic ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Using Deep Learning and Action Recognition to Automatically Digitize Human Actions at Scale: Putting Workers at the Center of the Next Industrial Revolution

    SBC: Dristhi Technologies, Inc.            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is to enable the automatic analysis of human motion using visual information gathered at high frequency. Within the manufacturing context?which represents 11% of US GDP [Bureau of Economic Analysis]?the collection and interpretation of this new set of large-scale time-and-motion data enables dramatic improvements in the understanding of assem ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Wireless Leakage Monitoring System for Electrofusion Joints

    SBC: PROPER PIPE, INC.            Topic: I

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is a substantial reduction of leakage in high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipes. HDPE is a type of plastic commonly used for water, oil, and gas distribution pipe systems. Billions of gallons of treated water are lost daily across the US due to leaking pipes, resulting in massive revenue loss, ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Internally Microstructured Optical Films for Natural Lighting of Building Interiors

    SBC: Svv Technology Innovations, Inc.            Topic: PH

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is in enabling additional energy savings in buildings by harvesting natural daylight and using it for illuminating the interior space with high efficiency and without glare, thus offsetting the need for electrical lighting. This will make building operations more sustainable and help improve t ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Achieving a scalable Earthquake Early Warning System (EEWS) with a sub-second response

    SBC: Zizmos, Inc.            Topic: IT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project achieves a widespread earthquake sensor network in the earthquake-prone regions. With this wide prevalence of the sensor network, this smart, real-time earthquake detection system can detect an earthquake within a second near an epicenter and notify the other users away from the epicenter befo ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Robotic Gripper for Fragile Produce

    SBC: Harvest Moon Automation Inc.            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is that it will enable the automated harvesting of fragile produce such as strawberries to help offset a shrinking workforce and increased labor costs. The world population is expected to grow from 7.3 billion to 11.2 billion by 2100, this population growth and a rising middle class will place more demand on the agricultural industry. Present ...
