  2. SBIR Phase I: A Novel Method for Atmospheric Correction of Earth Observation Satellite Data

    SBC: HYDRO BIO            Topic: CT

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project is to provide software service to correct Earth observation satellite (EOS) data to at-ground reflectance. EOS must look through the Earth?s atmosphere that induces systematic error in measuring the actual reflectance of ground targets through scatter and attenuation of light. Atmospherically-induced ...

  6. SBIR Phase I: A chemical assay kit for the high-throughput screening of chiral amine enantiomeric excess

    SBC: Enantiosense LLC            Topic: CT

    This SBIR Phase I project seeks to commercialize new sensor technologies that enable the rapid measurement of the handedness of molecular mixtures. Like screws and keys, many molecules possess a certain handedness that can be important when interacting with living systems. This issue is vital to pharmaceutical research, where one handed form of a drug may result in benefits while the opposite form ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Non-blood contacting, less invasive device for restoration of ventricular diastolic recoil

    SBC: CorInnova Incorporated            Topic: MD

    This SBIR Phase I project seeks to address the lack of approved device therapies available for the almost 4 million patients in the U.S. who suffer from diastolic heart failure (DHF) - a disease for which the potential market is estimated to be approximately $5B worldwide. In DHF, the chambers of the heart become stiff and cannot relax completely, reducing the amount with which they fill with bloo ...

  9. STTR Phase I: Wireless Vibration Micro-Sensors for None Intrusive Real Time Monitoring

    SBC: LORAND TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: EW

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is mainly in the area of machine condition monitoring. Vibration monitoring is an integral part of any machine condition monitoring regimen. All equipment that comprise belts, gears, bearings, drive motors, or other moving components have a specific vibration signature during normal operating cycles. Change in equipment vibration serves as an ...
