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. Handheld Multianalyte Biosensor Platform

    SBC: TIRF Technologies            Topic: HSB052001

    The overall goal of this project is to develop a handheld biosensor for rapid and sensitive detection of multiple biological analytes. The project primarily addresses the needs of first responders for detection of bioterrorism agents directly at the site of suspected attack. TIRF Technologies proposes to develop such handheld biosensor based on total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) combine ...

  2. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: 9050868TT

    Currently, there are over 10,000 MRI scanners used in the US alone. US citizens today are mobile and many times medical treatments may require MRI scans from several different facilities. Images from MRI scanners can also drift over time. There is a tremendous need for all medical imaging scanners to be on the same level. Sigma-K will develop the commercialization of the ISMRM/NIST MRI Calibration ...

  4. SBIR Phase I: A Controlled Cavitation Reactor for Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis

    SBC: Maverick BioFuels, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project offers a completely new and novel approach to convert biomass to a gasoline-replacing mixed alcohol biofuel. The new approach uses a unique reactor called a controlled cavitation reactor (CCR). Specifically, the CCR provides a uniform source of heat by use of small bubbles in a non-reactive liquid; thus, facilitating heat transfer and ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Preventing Biofilms on Indwelling Medical Devices with Novel Anti-Biofilm Small Molecules

    SBC: AGILE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project describes a new approach for reducing infections associated with indwelling medical devices. Bacteria on medical devices are particularly challenging to treat because they form a protective matrix called a biofilm on the surface of the device. It is very difficult to access bacteria in the biofilm state, and systemic use of antibiotics ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Manufacturing of Double-Walled Carbon Nanotube/Rigid Rod Polymer Advanced Structural Fibers

    SBC: NanoTechLabs Inc.            Topic: NM

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will employ innovative processing technologies to incorporate highly crystalline ultra-long double wall carbon nanotubes (DWCNTs) into poly(p-phenylene terephthalamide) (Kevlar) to prepare advanced structural fibers for ballistic protection for our law enforcement and soldiers, and structural materials for commercial and military aircraft. Cu ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Heat Pipe for Ground Source Heat Pump

    SBC: Forthright Engineering LLC            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will develop an earth heat exchanger that has a lower installation cost, lower operating cost, and smaller footprint than the currently available ground source heat pumps. High ground loop installation costs are the primary barrier to broader acceptance of ground source heat pump technology despite its efficiency advantage. By replacin ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Improving the healing of problematic skin wounds with topical application of growth factors derived from choroid plexus.

    SBC: CYTOSOLV INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will focus on the development of a therapeutic gel containing the full complement of naturally occurring growth factors secreted by the choroid plexus (CP) for use in the active wound care market, including problematic superficial skin wounds such as diabetic ulcers. High doses of single recombinant factors have shown limited value in ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Investigating the Feasibility of a Real-time Cloud Computing Application Performance Management Tool

    SBC: Altometrics, Inc.            Topic: IC

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project seeks to enable the global acceptance of cloud computing. Infrastructure outsourcing has become increasingly profitable and efficient for IT departments, but it has also birthed a new problem. Online application developers are left almost entirely unable to manage or even track the real-time performance of their applications as a user would e ...

  10. An Interactive Social Tutoring System to Improve and Measure Social Goals for Students Related to Academic and Other School-Related Outcomes

    SBC: 3-C Institute for Social Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: Elementary school is a time of growth and development in students' social skills and peer relations. Prior research shows that students who are able to establish and maintain positive peer relations are more successful in school (including higher levels of achievement) and better able to cope with stressful life events. In contrast, students who have difficulty navigating the socio-develo ...
