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. 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 ...

  9. Wearable Liquid Crystal Based Chemical Sensor Badge for the Identification of Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: H-SB017.1-006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) pose significant dangers to human health upon exposure. Unfortunately, emergency responders are unwittingly exposed to these TICs while responding and containing crisis situations, leading increased risk for disease. To protect emergency responders against dangerous exposure to chemicals, Platypus Technologies will develop a wearable chemical sensor badge that c ...
