  1. STTR Phase I: Hydrogen Storage in Catalytically-modified Porous Silicon

    SBC: Green Fortress Engineering, Inc.            Topic: CT

    This STTR Phase I project will study the storage of hydrogen on a novel material produced from silicon - the same substance used to make solar panels and computer chips. This unique and patented approach has the potential to eclipse all prior methods of hydrogen storage in terms of pressure, temperature, safety, cost, and convenience. Silicon is earth-abundant and benign to humans - it is even pro ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Interest-Aligned College Degree Planning within an Optimized Multiplan Framework

    SBC: IDP Interactive Degree Planner, LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a web-based application that assists prospective and new college students in the challenging decision of the major/minor choice for their college degree. Studies have shown that 20 to 50 percent of students enter college as undecided in terms of intended majors, and subsequently an astonishing 75 percent actually change their major at least once before gradua ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Novel Plasma Actuator for Improved Wind Turbine Performance

    SBC: AQUANIS, INC.            Topic: MI

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is the reduction in the cost of renewable energy. The dramatic decline in the cost of wind energy over the last several decades has been fueled by the ever increasing turbine size and the introduction of new manufacturing methods and materials. However, the industry is approaching the limits of this trend due to the increased wear and tear of ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Validation and optimization of balance and gait assessment technology in order to identify fall-risk in older adults

    SBC: SMARTGAIT LLC            Topic: BM

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is the ability to quickly and easily identify fall-risk in an aging population. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries in older adults, resulting in loss of independence and financial burden (predicted to exceed $54 and $101 billion in 2020 and 2030). There is a critical n ...
