Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 09
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17

For remote or isolated communities, resources and supplies such as fossil fuel must be shipped in to generate power and produce potable water, causing logistical issues and increases in greenhouse gas emissions. It would be ideal to have a combined technology integrating green energy harvest (wind, solar, and geothermal) and energy efficient des...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H3.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

In response to NASA SBIR Topic H3.01, Polestar Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a miniaturized sensor array platform for simultaneous monitoring of calcium, conductivity and pH in urine brine suitable for the international space station (ISS). The sensor platform will incorporate three different types of sensors: i) molecular recognition s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD14-102
Budget: 07/24/14 - 01/23/15
PI: Yufeng Ma

Polestar Technologies Inc. proposes a Phase I Small Business Innovation Research project to develop a chemical sensor for detection of chemical-warfare agents. The designed sensor combines selectivity of Molecularly-Imprinted Polymer (MIP) with sensitivity of single-layer graphene sheet. Detection will be based on radio frequency (RF) based impe...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB132-001
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

In this Phase II program Polestar Technologies Inc. will fabricate a prototype system based on the principles demonstrated in Phase I and demonstrate its capability for specific and sensitive detection of both the 9-aminoacid and the 12-aminoacid forms of Oxytocin. During Year 1 of our Phase II program, a first generation prototype will be fabri...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB132-001
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

This SBIR Phase I Proposal aims to develop a detection method for enabling sensitive and specific measurement of oxytocin, particularly to discriminate between the 9- and 12- amino acid versions. It aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel hybrid molecular imprinting device that can accomplish the overall goals of the program. The technica...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Rutgers University

Agency: Army
Topic: A12A-T011
Budget: 10/30/12 - 04/24/13
PI: Yufeng Ma

The overall objective of this program is to enhance significantly charge transfer from biological molecules to nanostructured electrode surfaces. To achieve this objective, we plan to use combination of three approaches: 1) Develop an effective means for integrating the biological molecules onto the anode and cathode surfaces of the nanostructur...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB012.1-003-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

The overall goal of this SBIR proposal is to develop a portable system for stand-off detection of concealed explosives. The system will produce images

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB012.1-003-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Title: Portable Imager for Stand-off Detection of Person-borne Bulk Military and Homemade Explosives. The overall goal of this SBIR proposal is to

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-159
Budget: 02/01/11 - 01/31/12

Polestar Technologies, Inc. proposes a Phase II SBIR project to complete the development of a unique rapid response transcutaneous CO2 sensor to address the need for a noninvasive sensor that is capable of providing the type of rapid accurate readings required to effectively control mechanical ventilation during ambulatory care. The new sensor w...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Rutgers University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT03
Budget: 04/30/10 - 01/30/11

The overall objective of this program is to develop an effective means for integrating enzymes onto an electrode in order to improve electron transfer and enzyme loading and stability. The approach is based on conformably coating a layer of functional polymer onto an arrayed multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) electrode. The immobilized enzym...
