  2. SBIR Phase I: Antibacterial Nanotopography for Orthopedic Fixation Devices

    SBC: Tyber Medical LLC            Topic: BM

    This SBIR Phase I project addresses the unacceptable incidence of orthopedic device-related infections, as well as the dangerous rise of antibiotic resistant bacteria. More than 100,000 implanted orthopedic fixation devices (pins, plates, and screws) acquire bacterial infections each year in the US, accounting for approximately $1.5 trillion in associated medical and surgical treatment costs. Furt ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Interactive Podcast Platform For Listening Comprehension

    SBC: Tinkercast, LLC            Topic: EA

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project intends to enhance listening comprehension skills via an innovative interactive learning platform that aligns with Common Core State Standards for listening comprehension and uses best practices in game-based learning. In 2017, 63% of U.S. 4th graders were reading below proficiency. Improving a students' level of listening comprehensio ...

  4. STTR Phase I: Sustained Delivery of Peptides with Inverse Flash Nanoprecipitation

    SBC: Optimeos Life Sciences, Inc.            Topic: BM

    This STTR Phase I project aims to pioneer a novel approach for the sustained delivery of peptide therapeutics using nano-composite microparticles. Peptide therapeutics tend to suffer from rapid enzymatic degradation and clearance, with half-lives on the order of minutes, and require frequent injections. The goal of a sustained release formulation is to reduce the frequency of injections by slowly ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Development of a Transparent, Near-Ultraviolet Photovoltaic Power Source for Wireless Operation of Smart Windows and IoT Devices

    SBC: Andluca Technologies Inc.            Topic: PH

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is a transparent photovoltaic technology that converts near-ultraviolet (NUV) light into point-of-use power for dynamic 'smart' windows. Energy use in buildings represents roughly 40% of total U.S. energy demand. It is projected that over half the buildings that will be in use in 2050 are alre ...

  6. TTDAQ: A Continuous Flow, Timing and Trigger DAQ System

    SBC: Telluric Labs LLC            Topic: 28b

    The nuclear physics data acquisition systems are challenged by the increasing demand for flexibility, accuracy, volume of data and processing speed, massive scalability, upgradability, and lower acquisition operations and maintenance costs. General precision timing synchronization for all Detector and DAQ components provides novel and original solutions to these problems especially if it can be ac ...

  7. Asynchronous Many Task Fast Exascale Visualizer- AMT FEVER

    SBC: JMSI INC.            Topic: 07a

    The simulations on which we depend must adapt to changing hardware to run at exascale. The Asynchronous Many Task (AMT) model is a viable alternative to existing techniques and has numerous advantages. In situ data visualization and analysis remains an important fixture of computing for exascale so these algorithms must be expressed in terms of AMT so they will be compatible with emerging computin ...

  8. Mixed Metal Oxide Catalysts for the Production of Aromatic Derivatives

    SBC: Exelus, Inc.            Topic: 22a

    Aromatics are the main building blocks for petrochemical products and intermediates. With the majority of US crackers switching to natural gas liquids, aromatics supply from crackers has fallen in recent years. In 2017, US imported more than 1.8 million tons of benzene mainly due to the shift to a very light feedstock (mainly ethane) in steam crackers. As a result, the aromatics industry will be i ...

  9. Non-destructive, Functional Metabolic Imaging of Plant and Microbial Systems

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 27a

    Functional metabolic imaging of plant and microbial systems requires a sensitive, high spatial resolution microscopy method that can image metabolically important compounds in situ. This will require new chemically sensitive imaging methods to be developed. In this SBIR/STTR, we will develop a new coherent Raman-based microscopy technique that will improve ensitivity over existing stimulated Raman ...

  10. Ground-based Water Vapor Atmospheric Vertical Profiler

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: 25b

    Detailed accurate data on temperature variations and water vapor concentration distributions are needed for weather and climate forecasting. Water vapor is particularly important for predicting precipitation amounts from storms. Measurements are needed from the ground to the top of the troposphere at about 10 km altitude. Existing ground-based instruments often have measurement uncertainties due t ...
