Phase 2 STTR Active

Firm: Provivi Inc.

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: CT
Budget: 09/15/17 - 08/31/19

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) project is to establish a broadly applicable, breakthrough biocatalytic technology to produce an important class of compounds called chiral cyclopropanes. Cyclopropanes are key intermediates that are used in the synthesis of drugs, crop protection agents, a...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Chromologic LLC

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.01
Budget: 09/28/16 - 09/27/18

Chromologic (CL) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) propose to continue the Phase II STTR development and demonstration of a Multifunctional Environmental Digital Scanning Electron Microprobe (MEDSEM) instrument that transmits high energy beams of electrons sequentially using a two-dimensional array of multiple, miniaturized el...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Next Dimension Technologies

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T008
Budget: 08/12/16 - 02/14/17

Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. N...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Provivi Inc.

Institution: California Institute of Technology

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

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to develop novel, breakthrough enzyme-catalyzed reactions that can be applied to the production of pharmaceuticals and crop protection agents. By establishing a broadly applicable biocatalytic alternative to produce an important class of compoun...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Telaris Inc.

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: Army
Topic: A14A-T005
Budget: 11/06/15 - 10/31/16

Spontaneous emission is a quantum mechanical process that represents the main source of phase noise in state-of-the-art semiconductor lasers, limiting their coherence, and their suitability for high-speed communication and sensing applications. This proposal aims to develop ultra-high coherence semiconductor lasers on the Silicon/III-V platform ...

Phase 2 STTR

Firm: Protabit LLC

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 09/15/15 - 08/31/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project will combine computational protein engineering (CPE) software, tools and methods into a "platform technology" that enables new products and technologies in a wide range of scientific areas, including industrial enzymes, pharmaceuticals, therapeuti...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Chromologic LLC

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16

Chromologic (CL) and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) propose to develop and demonstrate a Multifunctional Environmental Digital Scanning Electron Microprobe (MEDSEM) instrument that transmits high-energy beams of electrons sequentially from a two-dimensional array of miniaturized electron probes into a planetary atmosphere, and ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Kord Technologies, Inc.

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T002
Budget: 06/09/15 - 01/15/16

Turbulent shear flows in naval applications are characterized by vastly different lengths and time scales associated with rotor tip vortices and the vortical structures shed from the ship, and additional phase from water drops and water vapor. To tackle the modeling challenges, we propose a novel methodology that combines a vorticity preserving ...

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Telaris Inc.

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Phase 1 STTR

Firm: Scientific Systems Company, Inc.

Institution: California Institute of Technology

Agency: Navy
Topic: N14A-T008
Budget: 09/09/14 - 04/09/15

During a mission naval UAS collect large volumes of data but only sub-sections of this data contain information relevant to the mission. In order to find the important information analysts must sift through ALL of the data. FIXATE is a biomimmetic object classification system to automatically pre-process the data and cue the operator to sections...
