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. SBIR Phase I: Use of Dynamic Electric Field Gradients for the Crystallization of Proteins

    SBC: BioCrystals, LLC            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is for the development of technology to crystallize proteins using less sample and with higher speed and success than current high throughput protein crystallization methods. Protein crystallization is an intermediate step in determining the precise three-dimensional shape of a protein, and proteins are involved in virtually every cellular pr ...

  2. STTR Phase I:Video Analysis Techniques for Computer-Aided Quality Control for Colonoscopy

    SBC: EndoMetric, LLC            Topic: BT

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop algorithms for a quality control system for colonoscopy (a procedure where the mucosa of the large bowel is inspected via a flexible tube with a camera on it) that has contributed to a marked decline in the number of colorectal cancer related deaths. However, recent data suggest that there is a significant miss-rate for the detec ...

  3. SBIR Phase I: Reducing Diesel Fuel Consumption in Recovering Woody Biomass

    SBC: Fleenor Manufacturing Inc.            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 project develops a technology by which diesel fuel consumption can be significantly reduced while increasing productivity in recovering woody biomass. Diesel fuel is the number one operating cost of an industrial grinder and it is estimated that the diesel fuel consumed in processing the millions of tons of woody wastes each year in the United States ...

  4. SBIR Phase II: Structurally Integrated Organic Light Emitting Device-Based Sensors for Dissolved Oxygen in Water

    SBC: Integrated Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: EL

    This SBIR Phase II project aims to develop and commercialize a novel, next-generation photoluminescence (PL)-based, palm-size and miniaturizable dissolved oxygen (DO) sensor. DO sensors are primary monitors of water quality in industrial wastewater treatment. The new sensor is based on a pioneering platform for PL-based biochemical sensors where the excitation source is a pulsed organic light emit ...

  5. SBIR Phase I: The Novel Technology Beyond Bt Era to Help Plant Self-defense

    SBC: MSTRS Technologies Inc.            Topic: BT

    This Phase I SBIR project develops a novel technology to help plants defend themselves against aphid attack. The currently available insecticidal control methods have the risks of killing beneficial insects and polluting the environment. Plants are capable of using aphid-induced volatile signals for self-defense. Many aphid predators use these signals to increase their foraging efficiency. This pr ...

  6. STTR Phase I: Process to Produce Powder Metal Fluorides

    SBC: Nano-Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: MI

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project aims to develop a novel chemistry to prepare metal fluorides by the direct reaction of metals with fluorocarbons. The new process is highly suited to the manufacture of: (1) wires for optical communications; (2) high-surface-area metal fluoride catalysts used in the generation of fluoropolymers; and, (3) optical thin films such as an ...

  8. SBIR Phase I: Advanced Materials- Nano-diamond Coatings for Light-Weight Engine Components

    SBC: Photon Energy Technology            Topic: AM

    This SBIR Phase I project aims to develop a novel surface modification technology for aluminum alloys used in automotive internal combustion engines to improve resistance to friction. The related energy loss due to wear of components directly impacts the fuel efficiency of the automobile. The process to be used is a CO2-laser-based technique, combined with a fluidized-bed method to coat the compon ...
