95 Awards Won

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: BirdBrain Technologies

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: EA
Budget: 12/15/16 - 05/31/17

This project intends to design and develop a programmable electronics and robotics kit that catalyzes the learning of computational thinking, engineering design, and making at a price point that will be affordable for large numbers of elementary school classrooms throughout the nation. Such an educational robotics kit benefits society by positiv...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.02
Budget: 09/28/16 - 09/27/18

Recurring slope linae (RSL), such as those in Newton Crater on Mars, methane plumes in hazardous Martian terrain, and water ice discovered during the LCROSS experiment in the Moon?s permanently shadowed Cabeus Crater drive the need for a new generation of robotic explorers that access, probe, extract, and return resources from extreme terrains. ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Structured Materials Industries

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T023
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

High power switching devices are needed for all manner of weapon and defense systems as well as commercial power intense applications. Monoclinic beta()-Ga2O3 is an attractive material for power devices and is in its infancy with respect to development. It has the advantage of having large area economical substrates for device production. We hav...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Near Earth Autonomy

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N16A-T017
Budget: 07/11/16 - 05/10/17

Military and civilian agencies can benefit from systems that create 4D, spatio-temporal representations of dynamic scenes for target tracking, law enforcement, crowd control, disaster recovery, etc. Proliferation of imaging sensors such as surveillance cameras, car- and body-mounted cameras, and cell phones, provides the opportunity for reconstr...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: ProtoInnovations, LLC

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T11.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 06/09/17

ProtoInnovations, LLC and Carnegie Mellon University propose to research, design, develop, and test software tools and hardware that will greatly increase the performance of planetary robots by manipulating the environment around them. We are specifically interested in developing new planning algorithms and non-prehensile manipulation technique...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Innovalgae

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 01/15/16 - 12/31/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project is to commercialize technology to extract high-value components (e.g., omegea3 fatty acids) from algae. Omega3 fatty acids are an essential part of the human diet and are sourced primarily from fish oil; the fish actually get Omega3 from eating alg...

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BM
Budget: 01/01/16 - 12/31/16

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase I project is to mitigate fall risk among Parkinson's patients and the elderly, which will potentially save families and patients $34 billion annually in fall-related injuries and rehabilitation. Falling is common among individuals age 65 and over, one...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Tier 1 Performance Solutions, LLC

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT14
Budget: 08/18/15 - 05/16/16

ABSTRACT: The proliferation of autonomous- and human-machine systems necessitates the creation of new tools for system design and evaluation. Key among these are simulation testbeds that support interactions between multiple warfighters and systems, and methods for creating and integrating intelligent agent models into simulation environments. W...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T11.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

On-the-ground confirmation of lunar ice will transform space exploration, as ice can provide fuel to support far-reaching exploration and enable commercial endeavors. Evidence from satellite observations strongly supports the presence of polar ice, but driving and excavation are required to confirm presence, measure distribution, and extract re...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Astrobotic Technology, Inc.

Institution: Carnegie Mellon University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T4.02
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

The proposed program innovates subsurface prospecting by planetary drones to seek a solution to the difficulty of robotic prospecting, sample acquisition, and sample characterization at multiple hazardous locations in a single mission. Innovation focuses on a specific, challenging scenario: sub-surface access of multiple lava tubes by drones fa...
