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. Compact Air-cooled Laser Modulate-able Source (CALMS)

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: N152121

    Navy needs UVA laser modules with three wavelengths with >3W fiber coupled power output. Princeton Optronics proposes a frequency doubling approach which they use for high efficiency frequency doubling of VCSEL output. This would work at UVA wavelengths with PPLN and LBO materials as frequency doublers. In phase I, Princeton Optronics wants to demonstrate frequency doubling at 400nm wavelength and ...

  3. Flight Deck Lighting Addressable Smart Control Modules

    SBC: NDI Engineering Company            Topic: N152086

    The Navy has developed an Advanced Flight Deck Lighting (AFDL) solution for DDG-1000. The AFDL is comprised of a suite of Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lights powered and controlled from lighting device drivers called "FLEXDRIVERS." The control panel communicates commands to the FLEXDRIVERS over a network. The FLEXDRIVERS are in a centralized location away from the lights. Each FLEXDRIVER must be ind ...

  4. High-Energy, Long-Life Lithium-Sulfur Batteries

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N152093

    Batteries with multi-electron redox materials offer promise for increased performance relative to state of the art lithium-ion batteries. Lithium-sulfur (Li-S) batteries have two electron cathode materials (in addition to a lithium metal anode) and better than two times the specific energy of Li-ion batteries.However, several issues have prevented Li-S batteries from becoming more commercially via ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Music Education Through Composition on Mobile Devices

    SBC: Edify Technologies, Inc.            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will culminate in an application which teaches beginners to compose their own music. Music is traditionally taught using physical instruments and sheet music, both of which are complex and present imposing financial and practical barriers to creativity. As a result, even though parents value music education highly and research has shown that studying music is beneficial t ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Couragion STEM Career Literacy

    SBC: Couragion Corporation            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project will improve the awareness and perception of careers that require science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) competencies. Career influencers such as parents, educators, and counselors are often not in the position to inform students of potential options and expose unnecessary bias. If kids understood the opportunities, they could pursue academic pathways to amass ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Development of an Intelligent, Emotive, and Perceptive Socially Assistive Robot for Dementia Therapy

    SBC: Dream Face Technologies, LLC            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is the development of a social robot that will provide initial evidence for the feasibility and promise of a new generation of life-like animation-based and emotionally intelligent robots that provide companionship for individuals with cognitive disabilities (e.g. Dementia and AD) and increase their happiness and independence. The application ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Advanced bioeconomic forecasting enabled by next-generation crop monitoring

    SBC: ARABLE LABS, INC.            Topic: I

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will be to empower farmers to capture a greater share of revenue from the marketing of their crops. Agriculture is a significant engine to the U.S. economy, and farming itself is vital to creating economically vibrant rural areas. Farmers are often at a disadvantage when it comes to capturing ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: A Revolutionary Design for a Continuous Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel Continuous Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator (CADR) design by building and testing a prototype. This new technology has the potential to greatly reduce the cost of ultra-low temperature research. Currently, if a researcher needs to keep an experiment below 0.1K for more than a few days, ...

    SBIR Phase I 2016 National Science Foundation

    SBC: Xpeed Turbine Technology Limited Liability Company            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is in the development of a more efficient wind energy production technology. This technology will make wind energy more economically attractive, improve the energy security of the U.S., create hundreds of jobs and help to reduce coal and natural gas emissions by providing an alternative renewable energy source. An expected reduction in the le ...
