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.

  2. Wearable Liquid Crystal Based Chemical Sensor Badge for the Identification of Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: HSB0171006

    Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) pose significant dangers to human health upon exposure. Unfortunately, emergency responders are unwittingly exposed to these TICs while responding and containing crisis situations, leading increased risk for disease. To protect emergency responders against dangerous exposure to chemicals, Platypus Technologies will develop a wearable chemical sensor badge that c ...

  3. HTS Assays for Targeting the cGAS STING Pathway in Autoimmune Diseases and Cancer

    SBC: Bellbrook Labs, LLC            Topic: 300

    SUMMARY Cytoplasmic nucleic acids alert the immune system to invading pathogens and trigger a robust type I interferon IFN response via activation of the STING stimulator of interferon genes receptor The sensor for cytoplasmic nucleic acids was recently discovered to be a cyclic GMP AMP synthase which produces a unique cyclic dinucleotide second messenger cGAMP that serves as an agonist fo ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Metal Additive Manufacturing Simulation on a Desktop

    SBC: SciArt            Topic: MN

    This SBIR phase I project will provide a unique computational capability to additive manufacturing (AM) designers, engineers, and technicians for making better decisions with regards to metal 3D printing. Through AM, one can fabricate complex parts that were previously impossible to manufacture. Perfecting an AM process is however non-trivial, entailing time-consuming and expensive shop-floor expe ...
