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. Improved Tele-Control for Manipulator Equipped Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: Autonomous Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A09186

    Under the Phase I program, ASI will examine the available technologies for improving manipulation, create preliminary designs of how to integrate these technologies on current platforms (the Talon and Packbot), and simulate the effects of improved dynamic modeling and sensor feedback on manipulator performance. The deliverables for Phase I will thus be: • Preliminary design of retrofit packa ...

  2. Semi-Autonomous Manipulator Control Using 2D and 3D Scene Recognition

    SBC: Autonomous Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A09187

    Current mobile manipulators require extensive operator involvement to perform even simple tasks, such as opening a door, picking up an object, or emptying a container. “Fly-the-gripper” algorithms have been implemented to free the user from specifying joint velocities when a desired x, y, z gripper path is desired (Berkemeier, Poulson, et al. 2008), (Johnston, et al. 2008). Further, â ...

  3. A Superior Energy Storage Device Using Lithium Anode and Thermally Stable Cathode

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N101070

    This SBIR Phase I proposal from Technology Holding LLC seeks to develop an advanced energy storage system to integrate with renewable energy systems. The high energy density can be achieved by using lithium anode and thermally stable cathode materials. Solid electrolytes are expected to be far less reactive with any cathode material compared to liquid, organic electrolytes. Research in Phase I wil ...

  4. STTR Phase II: A Simple and Innovative Approach to the Synthesis of Metal, Alloy, Metal Oxide, and Mixed-Metal Oxide Nanoparticles

    SBC: Cosmas, Inc.            Topic: AM

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase II project aims to develop a manufacturing process to synthesize metal oxide, sulfide and other nanoparticles. The subject method simply involves mixing of common dry chemical starting materials and heating the resulting precursor material to a modest temperature. The objective is to demonstrate feasibility and scalability of this low-cost man ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: Near Infrared Substrates for Imaging Autotaxin Activity In Vivo

    SBC: ECHELON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to synthesize ATXRed, an in vivo imaging agent that is specifically activated by the enzymatic activity of autotaxin. Autotaxin is an extracellular enzyme that generates the phospholipid growth factor lysophophatidic acid (LPA). LPA is involved in a variety of biological functions, such as angiogenesis, wound healing, brain develo ...

  6. Anti-Phospholipid Multiplex For Pathologic Epitopes


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This project will help delineate the true nature of antigens in antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Application of this knowledge would accelerate the pace of basic and clinical research as well as benefit tens of thousands of U.S. patients each year. Primary APS in some severe cases leads to death via emergency venous thrombosis/embolism; and secondary APS com ...

  7. Development of Astrocyte-Restricted Precursors for Cell Therapy and Drug Screenin

    SBC: Q THERAPEUTICS, INC.            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The long-term objective of this research is to develop a cell therapy for the treatment of neurological disorders that are due to dysfunctional astrocytes. Current approaches to cure or manage these diseases by small molecule drugs are limited due to the polygenic and multifactorial nature of the disease. In addition, the blood brain barrier creates a significa ...

  8. Highly Linear E-Band Traveling Wave Tube Amplifier

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF093147

    The Air Force has identified a need for an advanced traveling wave tube amplifier (TWTA) that supports future generations of broad bandwidth, efficient and linear military satellite communication. To address this need, InnoSys proposes to develop innovative solutions for advanced TWTAs that operate from 81 to 86 GHz, deliver high efficiency greater than 30% with a relatively high saturated gain g ...

  9. Soft Hydrogels for Expansion of Quiescent Human MSCs


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An unmet need for expansion of primary cells and progenitor cells in three dimensions (3-D) is an extracellular matrix (ECM) substitute with user-controllable composition and compliance to which ECM proteins or synthetic peptides can be covalently attached by the end user. Glycosan BioSystems currently markets HyStem, an in situ-crosslinkable, semi-synthetic EC ...

  10. Deeply Integrated GMTI Radar/Laser/IR and EO and SWIR Payload for MAV

    SBC: IMSAR LLC            Topic: A08086

    A major problem faced by our warfighters utilizing a Micro Air Vehicle is its limited capability to provide wide area situational awareness and sense combatants under low visibility conditions such as night, rain, fog, dust, snow and sand. The other issue is that once a combatant is identified the warfighter must personally engage the combatant exposing the warfighter to enemy fighter. If the MAV ...
