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. Ko's Journey: Empires

    SBC: MidSchool Math, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project team is developing a prototype of a web-based pre-algebra math game for middle school students for use on tablet and personal computer platforms. The game, called Empires, will be story-based, strategic, and will enable peer-to-peer interactions. The games will be integrated within classroom practice. Pilot research in Phase I will seek to demonstrate that the gaming prototype functio ...

  2. Volume Charge Distribution Measurement in Thin Dielectrics

    SBC: BOX ELDER INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: AF11BT20

    ABSTRACT: Over half of spacecraft system anomalies attributed to interactions with the natural space environmentincluding electron upsets, damage to components, power system debilities, and complete satellite failuresare attributed to spacecraft charging. While measurements of electron emission, surface potential and electrostatic breakdown provide important information, the"holy grail" ...

  3. Development of a Robust, Highly Efficient Oxygen-Carbon Monoxide Cogeneration System

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: X102

    This small business innovation research is intended to develop a long-life, highly efficient O2-CO cogeneration system to support NASA's endeavors to pursue extraterrestrial exploration (Moon, Mars, and Asteroids/Phobos). The cogeneration system will be built using a Tubular, Negative Electrode-supported Solid-Oxide Electrolysis Cell (Tune-SOEC) employing MSRI's most promising degradation-resista ...

  4. Preclinical Development of JS-K, a Novel NO-Generating Prodrug for Cancer

    SBC: JSK THERAPEUTICS INC.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Despite notable achievements over the past two decades, cancer remains a challenging 21st century epidemic demanding new, more effective drugs. Nitric oxide (NO) is well known to kill cancer cells without harming normal bone marrow cells, but until now has not been used directly to treat cancer because of its effect to lower blood pressure. JSK Therapeutics (J ...

  5. Implantable Myoelectric Recording Array for Control of Prostheses

    SBC: RIPPLE, LLC            Topic: NINDS

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The goal of this translational SBIR program is to create a small, implantable system for recording myoelectric signals from residual and reinnervated muscles of individuals with forearm and other amputations. The signals will be wirelessly coupled to an external receiver for controlling prostheses. Compared to conventional surface electrodes, this system will p ...

  6. Novel Process for Production of Fatty Acids from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 88

    Environmental Benefits: The proposed technology relates to Climate change and sustainable energy. Fatty acids are currently produced from palm oil, 80% of which comes from Malaysia and Indonesia. Both these countries have finite land available and often times rainforests are destroyed to make way for palm plantations. This activity puts tremendous strain on ecological balance. Moreover, a signific ...

  7. Solid Oxide Fuel Cell Cathode Enhancement Through a Vacuum-Assisted Infiltration Technique

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 21c

    SOFC technology promises to provide an efficient method by which electricity can be generated from coal-derived syngas, biofuels, and natural gas, while increasing energy security and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The large capital costs attributed to the cathode low performance and long-term stability issues are a current limitation of SOFC technologies that must be addressed before commerci ...

  8. The Memory Care Navigator: A Proactive Guide

    SBC: Proactive Memory Services            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's disease (AD) is an irreversible neurological disease that progressively causes a tremendous toll in disability and societal cost. As our population ages, AD and other memory disorders will become increasingly prevalent. Patients and their families often find themselves lost in a complex web of multiple providers, receiving conflicting recommend ...

  9. In-situ Gelling Protein Polymer Intravascular Embolic Agent for Hepatic Carcinoma

    SBC: TheraTarget, Inc.            Topic: NCI

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Phase I proposal addresses the significant need for improved treatment options for patients with liver cancer, the fifth highest incidence of cance in the world. Because of the lack of symptoms, hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is detected at advanced stages in 84% of cases, for which the 1-year survival rate is 22% and at 5 years it is 5%. The only curativ ...

  10. SBIR Phase I: Through-Building Device-free Localization for Emergency and Tactical Operations

    SBC: Xandem Technology LLC            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate the rapid deployment of wireless networks for the purpose of device-free localization (DFL) in tactical through-building surveillance applications. DFL locates people inside of a building using only simple radio devices deployed on the outside of the building. In a police or military operation, these devices are thrown ...
