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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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, ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: Democratizing Computer Science Education through a Sustainable Peer Tutoring Community

    SBC: ACTIMATOR LLC            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project seeks to create an effective peer-tutoring platform for Computer Science (CS) education. Currently, the software industry in the United States is suffering from a shortage of 100,000 CS professionals per year. The root can be traced to the lack of CS preparation in K-12 education, where the majority of students do not receive proper CS education at school. While there is ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Breaking the Cycle of Poverty, Unsupported Educational Pathways and Stagnant Social Mobility via Mobile Apps

    SBC: CyclusBreak            Topic: EA

    This SBIR Phase I project is targeted to support two end users; one being, first-generation college students who do not have the resources or college knowledge to get them through degree completion; and two, college advisors/counselors whose caseloads have reached insurmountable proportions making it impossible to provide quality attention to students with numbers spiking at rates not seen before ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Development of a radiometric receiver for 183 GHz.

    SBC: Boulder Environmental Sciences And Technology, LLC            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is in improving and simplifying weather observations from various platforms, such as an unmanned aircraft, small satellites in orbit, a buoy in the middle of the ocean or from the ground, even in a remote location. The targeted customer for the radiometer receiver is anyone who desires a more detailed, localized, short term forecast. Such cus ...

  9. SBIR Phase I: Science-Based Networked Tools for Effective Design and Manufacture of Green Buildings and Green-Building Products

    SBC: LIGHT FOUNDRY, LLC            Topic: MN

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project relates glare in the design of buildings. The construction industry is currently stifled by the problem of glare, given the limited ability of tools to provide immediate and rigorous analysis that could help users understand where, when, why, how much and how to remedy glare in their buildings. This SBIR project will create the first tool tha ...

  10. STTR Phase I: Commercialization of Synthetic Metabolic Valves

    SBC: DMC Biotechnologies, Inc.            Topic: BT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project will be the development of technology to decouple growth from product formation in microbes used for biomanufacturing. The goal is to address current limitations in the field of metabolic engineering for the production of high value products. Current approaches must balance the complex requirements of ...
