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. Improving Hearing Aid Satisfaction Through Remote Feedback and Settings Adjustments

    SBC: Innovative Design Labs Inc.            Topic: n/a

    This project develops a system that improves communication between a patient and their audiologist, simplify the fitting and tuning process by allowing patients to remotely record their hearing aid (HA) experience via a smartphone application. Currently, only 28.5% of individuals who could benefit from a HA actually wears one. The goal of this project is to improve patient satisfaction with their ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Lipoleosomes as Carriers for Topical Ibuprofen

    SBC: DYNATION L. L. C.            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase I project addresses a critical need in medicine ? the ability to deliver drugs selectively to parts of the body that need medication. Targeted drug delivery improves patient outcomes by treating tissues locally while reducing overall exposure and side effects elsewhere. For example, a cream or lotion type product which moves anti-inflammatory drugs through skin specifically to an a ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: Novel Defibrillator

    SBC: Medicool Technologies            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project lies in its potential to develop a new mechanism for painlessly terminating atrial fibrillation. Cardiac arrhythmia is one of the leading causes of death and debilitation. A common means of terminating harmful rhythms is delivering a shock via an external or implantable defibrillator. The pain ...

  7. ISABEL- Integrated Secure Automated Bug Extraction List


    The ISABEL program will create symbolic execution signatures to classify bugs in the NIST Bugs Framework. Using the symbolic execution signature ISABEL will find a program input to trigger the bug using fuzz testing. ISABEL will integrate its bug categorization and bug triggering capability with a software development environment using a flexible framework that will allow both open source and comm ...

  8. Hierarchical Zeolite Catalysts for Renewable Surfactants Platform

    SBC: SIRONIX RENEWABLES            Topic: 09d

    Current catalytic routes to surfactants used in the $12 billion cleaning products industry are energy intensive and inefficient, producing molecules with limited function and high energy cost. There exists an opportunity to significantly reduce the energy intensity of laundry detergents production and transportation through the design of a hierarchical catalyst material that can be used to precise ...
