U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Following are examples of projects funded in FY2016 that illustrate the beneficial impact that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) SBIR/STTR programs have on U.S. manufacturing: Outreach The USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) administers the USDA Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. The USDA SBIR program works closely with the Small Business Administration (SBA) to ensure that upcoming National SBIR conferences highlight the importance of manufacturing to the U.S. economy. In addition, opportunities will be emphasized to submit appropriate R&D proposals to the different USDA SBIR topic areas that deal with manufacturing issues of significance to the mission of the USDA. A similar effort will be made to highlight this focus on manufacturing R&D in talks that are presented at the various State SBIR meetings. Funding Opportunities The USDA SBIR program issues a request for application or program solicitation each fiscal year that lists 10 broad topic areas that encompass the full range of research and development priorities for USDA. From the beginning of the USDA SBIR program, topic areas have been discipline-specific, not technology specific. The 10 topic areas contained in the program solicitation are; Forests and Related Resources; Plant Production and Protection – Biology; Animal Production and Protection; Air, Water and Soils; Food Science and Nutrition; Rural and Community Development; Aquaculture; Biofuels and Biobased Products; Small and Mid-Size Farms; and Plant Production and Protection – Engineering. Technology-specific topics such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, or manufacturing technology are not listed separately, but may be submitted to one of the ten topic areas. Numerous projects in all of these technology areas have been supported and will continue to be supported. The USDA SBIR Phase I and II Program Solicitation contains a statement that encourages applicants to include Agriculturally – Related manufacturing technology as an area of focus. The inclusion of this statement has resulted in an increase of applications that deal with manufacturing issues that are relevant to the USDA mission and the SBIR topic area. Award Selection The USDA SBIR external review panels will be instructed to consider the existence of manufacturing-related proposals as a tie breaker during the evaluation process. When two proposals are considered approximately equal in merit and one proposal has a focus on manufacturing, that proposal will be given priority in both the Phase I and Phase II selection process. Reporting As required by the SBIR Policy Directive, the USDA SBIR program will provide manufacturing-related SBIR data in the annual report that is due to SBA by March 15th of each year. Future Years USDA SBIR staff will coordinate with SBA and if there are any additional requirements, the USDA will update this plan to accommodate the changes.

Department of Commerce (DOC) Following are examples of projects funded in FY2016 that illustrate the beneficial impact that the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) SBIR/STTR programs have on U.S. manufacturing: NIST The NIST SBIR program supports manufacturing-related research projects through its solicitations and awards. In FY 2016, NIST’s annual SBIR solicitation contained 10 manufacturing-related research topics. More than 50 percent of NIST’s Phase I awards were related to manufacturing. Four Advanced Manufacturing Phase II awards were made. The solicitation included a notice describing Executive Order (EO) 13329 and encouraged innovation in manufacturing by giving high priority, where feasible, to projects beneficial to the manufacturing sector. A Manufacturing-related R&D Emphasis in SBIR web page is available. The NIST SBIR Program Office provides proposer contact and project information to NIST’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) as authorized by applicants. NOAA Like NIST, the NOAA SBIR program supports manufacturing-related research projects through its solicitations and awards. In FY 2016, roughly 16 out of the 27 Phase I awardees provided projects related to manufacturing. Also, the FY2016 SBIR Phase I Solicitation included a notice describing Executive Order (EO) 13329 and encouraged innovation in manufacturing by giving high priority, where feasible, to projects beneficial to the manufacturing sector. Lastly, in order to promote manufacturing in SBIR projects, NOAA utilizes them as tie-breakers during the evaluation of proposal. Per the FY2016 SBIR Phase I Solicitation (Page38, Section 4.3),” In the event of a “tie” between proposals, manufacturing-related projects as well as those regarding energy efficiency and renewable energy systems will receive priority in the award selection process.”

Innovation in manufacturing, through small businesses, is the key to improving the United States economy. This is why, on February 26, 2004, President George W. Bush enacted Executive Order (EO) 13329, to ensure that Federal agencies properly and effectively assist the private sector in its manufacturing innovation so as to sustain a strong manufacturing sector. EO guidelines state that all government agencies with one or more Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) programs or one or more Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs give high priority to manufacturing related research and development (R&D) processes, systems, and workforce protection. This includes manufacturing processes, equipment and systems; or manufacturing workforce skills and protection. The DoD SBIR/STTR program has worked to integrate manufacturing related projects into their program since EO 13329 was signed. In the pages that follow please find a full report of the DoD’s findings of the implementation of EO13329 across participating DoD components.

Procedures and Mechanisms Used to Give Priority to Manufacturing Related Projects DoD SBIR/STTR releases three solicitations per year; included in these solicitations are topics related to and promoting manufacturing technology. Some examples of promoting manufacturing related projects by participating DoD components are as follows:

a. The Air Force identifies manufacturing technology as a tie-breaker in solicitations, stating the Air Force will evaluate proposals in descending order of importance with technical merit being most important, followed by the Commercialization Plan, and then qualifications of the principal investigator (and team) and that, where technical evaluations are essentially equal in merit, and the cost and/or price is a substantial factor, then cost to the Government will be considered in determining the successful offeror. The next tie-breaker on essentially equal proposals will be the inclusion of manufacturing technology considerations.

b. The Army collaborates with the U.S. Army Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) Program to integrate and align SBIR efforts directly into ManTech projects. The ManTech Program Management Office (PMO) reviews, evaluates and endorses manufacturing-related topics for manufacturing-relatedness against the following five categories:

1. Core Manufacturing Innovation Topic. 2. Addresses manufacturing process, technique or innovation. 3. Addresses manufacturing development, application, and tools used in advanced processes. 4. Targets manufacturing manufactures for related equipment, systems or production lines. 5. Addresses the affordability, and reproducibility of demonstrated technology.

c. Of specific concern to the Chemical and Biological Defense Program is unit cost of technologies having the potential for distribution to individual Warfighters. Therefore, SBIR topics that address the affordability, producibility, or manufacturing of an innovative technology are of particular importance and given greater priority for inclusion into future SBIR solicitations. CBD SBIR topics are assigned to one of the following seven categories:

1. Research for a process or product that has significant manufacturing implications, although not the sole purpose of the topic.

2. Topic addresses the development or application of advanced technologies for manufacturing

processes, tools, and equipment.

3. Topic includes manufacturing issues associated with technology under development.

4. Research Topic that has Product or System Focus, Addressing Manufacturing Aspects of that

Product.

5. Primary objective of topic is to develop a system or weapon-specific capability.

6. Manufacturing, producibility, cost and yield are referenced but not the primary objective of the

task.

7. Manufacturing-related activities may be part of Phase II.

d. DARPA leverages their Open Manufacturing program to solve this problem by building and demonstrating rapid qualification technologies that comprehensively capture, analyze and control variability in the manufacturing process to predict the properties of resulting products. Success could help unleash the potential time- and cost-saving benefits of advanced manufacturing methods for a broad range of defense and national security needs. DARPA hosted a Gee Whiz session at the 2015 Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC) to improve manufacturing opportunities between small businesses and industrial partners the following SBIR firms participated as panelists:

1. Clearmark Systems, LLC W911NF-15-C-0009 Electronic Component Fingerprinting to Determine Manufacturing Origin

2. Diamond Nanotechnologies Inc. HR0011-14-C-0018 Super-Resolution Magnetic Field Microscopy [SRMFM] Using Multifunctional Diamond Nanosensors

3. Indiana Microelectronics LLC W31P4Q13C0167 Closed Loop Frequency Control for Tunable High Quality Factor Filters

4. Land Sea Air Autonomy W911NF-14-C-0033 Hybrid Off-Road Motorcycle

e. DLA seeks drastically lower unit costs of discrete-parts support through manufacturing revolutions that also have applicability to low and high volume production from commercial sales. This will result in an improvement in the affordability of these innovations to DLA and its customers and the development of cost effective methods to sustain existing defense systems while potentially impacting the next generation of defense systems. Actions Taken Toward Promoting and Supporting Manufacturing-Related Research Projects DoD continues to take an active approach to promoting and supporting manufacturing-related research projects. This is done through attending outreach event, collaborations with various organizations and offices such as ManTech, etc. Some examples of this promotion are: a. The Army and Air Force SBIR/STTR programs publish and advertise success stories for outstanding manufacturing related projects. These websites bring together the small business communities, component researchers, Program of Record, prime contractors, and the ManTech community for possible collaboration on new and ongoing SBIR/STTR projects. b. Transition assistance is offered by various DoD components in support of their manufacturing related projects. Army SBIR/STTR employs transition assistance to firms whose proposals have met and/or exceeded all Army SBIR criteria. Transition assistance is available through Phase II Commercialization Readiness Program (CRP). Similarly, the DARPA Small Business Programs Office has contracted with Strategic Analysis, Inc. Technology Transition and Commercialization team (T2C Team) to implement the Transition and Commercialization Support Program (TCSP). The T2C Team is providing high level review companies’ transition and commercialization strategy, transition and commercialization strategy, transition and commercialization planning support, identification and introduction to potential collaborators, potential partners and potential sources of Phase III funding, and identification of thought leadership opportunities. c. Several components, including Army, OSD, DLA, work closely to incorporate the ManTech program during topic writing and Phase I and Phase II source selection processes. d. DoD Components regularly participate in manufacturing related conferences including: Beyond Phase II, Defense Manufacturing Conference (DMC), and Nanotechnology for Defense (NT4D). During these conferences one-on-one discussions were conducted between SBIR program personnel and small business representatives to investigate application of their technologies to the mission and requirements of the DoD community. e. Almost the entire DoD community promotes EO 13329 through posting various links to manufacturing related documents and websites including:

1. The Department of Commerce (DOC) “Manufacturing in America” article. 2. Establishing a link to EO13329 on their respective SBIR/STTR public website.

An Assessment of the Effectiveness of the Actions Taken at Enhancing the R&D of U.S. Manufacturing Technologies and Processes The DoD is extremely interested in continuing to improve the effectiveness of the R&D of U.S. manufacturing technologies and processes. DoD SBIR/STTR programs are a few of the ways in which the R&D of U.S. manufacturing technologies and processes are successfully enhanced as it represents a direct investment in the development of this essential focus area. Through the advancement of grand ideas,

innovative technologies and processes that would never before have been nurtured are discovered and developed, improving U.S. manufacturing’s standing throughout the world. Much of the DoD community conducts internal evaluation to assure topics are apportioned to manufacturing innovation. For example, MDA continues to experience success in soliciting manufacturing technology proposals. MDA’s primary focus has been on improved manufacturing of structural components of missiles, manufacturing of light-weight batteries, and manufacturing of focal plane array sensor systems. All developed products are manufactured in the U.S. Description of Efforts Undertaken by Vendors Selected to Provide Discretionary Technical Assistance to help SBIR/STTR Business Concerns Manufacture in the U.S. When applicable DoD components makes use of the additional $5,000 dollars allotted per year to SBIR awardees for discretionary technical assistance through contractors with expertise in this area. This caveat can be found in the 2012 SBIR Policy Directive, Amendment III H. Section 9(c). Recommendations from the Agency’s SBIR and STTR Program Manager of Additional Actions to Increase Manufacturing Activities in the U.S. The DoD recommends utilizing resources available to increase manufacturing activities in the U.S and encouraging organizations to focus on topics that will highlight manufacturing. Closer collaboration regarding topics at the very beginning stages of topic development should kindle an increase in the successful transition of future projects to the commercial market. Further, coordinating activities with manufacturing technology programs already existing within the Services, such as U.S. Army ManTech program must continue. ManTech focuses on transitioning projects from Phase II to Phase III, the ultimate goal of the SBIR program. Some additional component recommendations are as follows: a. CBD SBIR recommends OSD Office of Small Business Programs continue to facilitate a relationship between SBIR/STTR and the Defense Manufacturing Conference; this is a synergist outreach event that will improve manufacturing opportunities between small businesses and industrial partners. b. DLA SBIR suggests streamlining the contracting process to increase timely investment in U.S. manufacturing. Long procurement times negatively impact the small business concern’s ability to form and maintain commercialization partnerships necessary for manufacturing invests to be successful. Consolidating contracting activities that can focus on understanding SBIR contract awards will expedite manufacturing based awards. c. MDA states that the key to increasing manufacturing activities in the U.S. is worker productivity. Productivity must exceed the high financial liability of labor overhead to be successful. If we are to make a contribution in this area, some portion of the research budget must be set aside for component design simplification and process automation. Each worker must be empowered to produce products more economically and at a faster rate. Further, simplified designs will enable faster and more reliable assembly techniques. Relevant systems must also rely on common components for common functions. This will increase the scale of production for individual parts and make manufacturing more economical. d. Navy SBIR supports providing vendors with training on manufacturing risks and mitigation strategies.

U.S. Department of Education (ED) The U.S. Department of Education (ED) operates its SBIR program at the Institute of Education Sciences (IES). The ED SBIR Program uses a contracts mechanism to provide up to $1,050,000 in funding ($150,000 for Phase I; $900,000 for Phase II) to small business firms and partners for the research and development (R&D) of commercially viable education technology products for use by students and teachers in education and in special education settings. Broadly speaking, ED’s SBIR program is designed to support and encourage R&D in manufacturing through “environment or societal, and systems level technologies” (as defined by SBA, 2005). These projects encompass a range of manufacturing topics, such as artificial intelligence, information technology devices, software, systems, devices, and product design. Examples of ED manufacturing‐related SBIR/STTR projects In 2016, attention was paid in identifying projects that were manufacturing-related. Of the 14 contracts awarded, many are conducting R&D of software and hardware components, which if feasible could potentially be manufactured and commercialized on a broader scale during Phase III of the SBIR program. Examples of ED SBIR Manufacturing-Related Projects:

With a 2015 Phase II award, Schell Games is developing Happy Atoms, a set of physical models paired with an iPad app to cover high school chemistry topics in atomic modeling. The modeling set (which is manufactured to bring the product to market) includes individual plastic balls representing the elements of the periodic table. Students use the iPad app to take a picture of models they create. Using computer-generated algorithms, the app then identifies the model and generates information about its physical and chemical properties and uses. The app also informs students if a model that is created does not exist. Happy Atoms replaces or supplement lesson plans to enhance chemistry teaching. The app includes teacher resources suggesting how to incorporate games and activities to reinforce lesson plans and learning. For more information, see: http://ies.ed.gov/funding/grantsearch/details.asp?ID=1598.

In FY2016, ED SBIR implemented the following procedures to give priority to manufacturing related projects:

1) Placed a notice in FY2016 SBIR program solicitations that details Executive Order 13329; 2) Placed a forced-choice question in the 2016 SBIR program solicitations for applicants to

indicate (yes or no) whether their proposed project is “manufacturing-related;” 3) Placed language in the solicitation advising potential applicants that ED SBIR offices will give

priority to manufacturing-related projects in the event of a tie in the award selection process. (Note: This “tie-breaker” specification allows the ED SBIR program to apply an additional preference without compromising the quality standards or established criteria of the program).

Specific actions ED has taken toward promoting and supporting manufacturing ‐ related research projects In FY2016, ED SBIR used the following procedures and mechanisms to promote and support Executive Order 13329:

1) Maintained the notice on the ED SBIR website that describes Executive Order 13329, provides a definition of manufacturing-related projects in education, and provides a web-link to the Executive Order

2) Continued tracking and reporting success stories demonstrating the impact of the SBIR

Procedures/Mechanisms Used to Give Priority to Manufacturing-related SBIR Projects The EPA SBIR Program continues to make manufacturing a priority in its annual solicitations. Manufacturing is very important to the EPA’s mission of protecting human health and the environment as it can impact many areas that have large environmental impact including water and energy use, toxicity, pollution, waste disposal, etc. The EPA considers all of these impacts when evaluating proposals for selection. SBIR program solicitation includes a “Manufacturing” topic shown below:

Executive Order 13329 directs the EPA to properly and effectively assist the private sector in its manufacturing innovation in order to sustain a strong manufacturing sector in the U.S. economy. These innovations often involve engineering and technical solutions that make the manufacturing operation and/or the manufactured product both more environmentally and economically sound. The EPA is seeking the development and commercialization of innovative technologies that, when compared with currently available technologies, have dramatically better performance, decreased cost of production, and reduced environmental impacts in both production and use. The production, use, recycle/reuse, and disposal of plastic materials and products still pose significant environmental and human health problems. Toxic fumes that affect workers and neighbors of manufacturing facilities and that off-gas in the home are one type of problem. Another is portrayed by the very graphic pictures of ocean wildlife fatally caught in plastic holders for soda cans. The EPA is seeking innovative plastics that are less hazardous in both their production and use. This means that technologies proposed for this topic must achieve both of these goals in order to be successful, as follows:

(a) The EPA is seeking more sustainable ways of manufacturing plastics that eliminate the use of toxic chemicals in their production, greatly reduce the amount of energy used, and eliminate toxic pollutants that result from the manufacturing process, and (b) the plastics that are manufactured using these improved processes should not emit toxic fumes, should not be toxic if ingested, should rapidly biodegrade in soil and water, and should be easily recycled/reused.

These considerable improvements should result in the following:

Topic Code 3. Non-toxic and biodegradable plastics: Manufacture and use of the next generation of non-toxic and biodegradable plastic materials and products. Other solicitation topics also cover manufacturing-related needs including the cook stoves topic which focused on integrated cooking, heating, and electric power generation, and the building materials subtopic which focused on less toxic coatings.

Outreach to promote Executive Order awareness EPA’s SBIR Program has emphasized manufacturing-related topics and priorities at National, regional and state SBIR conferences and webinars. Emphasis has been placed on opportunities for businesses to submit new critical manufacturing technologies that improve both the process efficiency and the environmental impact of the technology. Many of EPA’s success stories have been in the area of manufacturing (including multiple Tibbetts awards) and EPA frequently publishes these success stories and other communications pieces on its SBIR website, www.epa.gov/sbir

Project Title: A Novel Image Guided System to Mount Micro Targeting Platform for Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery to Treat Parkinson’s Disease Related Award: 1 R43 NS093875-01A1 Technology Developed: Xoran is on the quest to improve patient care and reduce waste and inefficiency in healthcare by developing innovative medical imaging devices for use at the point of service. Xoran creates innovative products and services by leveraging its core competencies in Medical Imaging, Information Technologies, and Customer Service. Xoran's innovations support the global and domestic healthcare trends: migration of medical procedures from more to less complex and expensive settings, medical procedures becoming less and less invasive, need to reduce the cost of healthcare in the US, and increasing readiness in non-US healthcare markets for technical innovation. Public Health Relevance: Deep brain stimulation (DBS), a surgical procedure, has become a standard of care for Parkinson's patients and is a more effective treatment than other nonsurgical ones for Parkinson's disease in its advanced stages. Current available stereotactic methodologies used for DBS have shown some deficiencies that make many patients become intolerant to the treatment. This project proposed a novel system that can potentially reduce patients' discomfort and decrease the medical cost on DBS procedure.

National Science Foundation (NSF) SBIR/STTR Manufacturing Related Project Examples Covalent LLC 4616 W. Sahara Ave., Ste 562, Las Vegas, CA ZIP: 89102-3654 Award Title or Description: SBIR Phase I: Manufacturing Nanomembranes for Water Applications - In Process Analysis Abstract at Time of Award The broader impact/commercial potential of this project relates to the critical issue of the nation’s and the world’s water quality and quantity. Abundant, pure, low cost water is the basis of health and prosperity. The project will produce one-atomic-layer thick membranes capable of delivering high purity water for domestic use, industry and agriculture by purification, wastewater remediation and desalination at the lowest energy possible under physical law from any water source, no matter how contaminated. With water scarcity and contamination growing issues domestically and internationally, conventional technologies either cannot perform the necessary cleanup or can only do it at costs prohibitive to agriculture, industry and daily living. By delivering an ultra-low energy solution in a small package that replaces large plants, everything from large municipalities to small towns and rural agricultural areas can benefit from high volume, low cost, high purity water at affordable prices. The technology will first be deployed in California's Central Valley to create new sources of agriculture water. At large scale for environmental remediation, it can remedy problems such as the neurotoxins that shut down Toledo, Ohio’s water or eliminate the nitrates and phosphates that caused the problem. This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project represents the cutting edge of nanotechnology design and manufacturing: complete precision at the atomic scale. This membrane is made by pharmaceutical-style organic chemistry to create the most precise material ever built. It incorporates an unprecedented constellation of biomimetic techniques: using Nature's methods to reach a new level of performance in the vitally important and technically challenging area of water purification and desalination. It also represents the long-sought goal of the community of membrane researchers: ultra-low energy filtration at "high specificity", i.e., the ability to separate out very small pollutants such as removing salt from seawater, arsenic or other contaminants from freshwater. The EPA describes the relationship between water and energy as the Water/Energy Nexus. The technology takes energy requirements to the lowest energy possible under the laws of physics by working with a single atomic layer membrane. Precise construction of the pores that form the membranes enables unprecedented control over filtration and selection. Precise control over surface chemistry allows unprecedented control over issues of fouling and scaling. Successful demonstration of this technically challenging high quality manufacturing will be a game changer opening a new era of single atomic layer membranes. Betula Extractives, LLC. 4505 County Road 92, Waconia, MN 55387-9303 Award Title or Description: STTR Phase I: Semisynthetic Manufacturing of Core Natural Triterpenoids from Outer Birch Bark Extract Abstract at Time of Award

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Technology Transfer Research Phase I project is to facilitate the manufacturing and commercialization of natural and semi-synthetic products namely core lupane triterpenoids (betulin, betulinic acid, lupeol, betulinic aldehyde) as precursors for drug development and other industrial applications. Research shows that these triterpenoids can be useful agents for prevention and treatment of cancer, chronic inflammation, HIV/AIDS, type 2 diabetes, tuberculosis, metabolic disease, as well as next generation antimicrobials, and vaccine adjuvants. Unfortunately, the complex isolation and/or chemical synthesis of these compounds has resulted in low scale yields at costs of more than US$10,000/kg. The fundamental potential of this project lies in the demonstration of the use of certain selective organic reactions to produce these high value compounds straight from the complex composition of the natural extract found in the outer bark of the birch tree, a renewable, natural resource found extensively throughout the northern climates. This approach is novel and if successful, can result in significantly higher yields while eliminating multiple complex synthesis steps, thus providing a large diversity of triterpenoids that were previously not available in commercial quantities. The technical objective in Phase I research project is the development of a principally new way of pure natural and semi-synthetic chemical manufacturing from the triterpenoid extract found in the outer bark of the birch tree. The specific objectives of this project are to develop the methods and processes to 1) provide commercial quantities of outer bark, free from impurities and foreign matter, 2) develop the processes to extract the natural triterpenoids (BBE) from the outer bark and remove unwanted contaminants. 3) Develop the synthesis processes to convert the triterpene extract to the semi-synthetic precursors necessary with the quality and purity to be used for drug development. This research will provide specially designed processes of bark screening, separation and densification to provide a pure material that can be efficiently and economically processed. Extraction methods will be developed to remove traces of tannins, pigments, suberin, and other unwanted materials. Innovative new ways for the straight semisynthetic production of the triterpenoids directly from BBE, will be developed to lead to the creation of a large scale production process for triterpenoids as fine chemicals. Ecolectro, Inc. 201 Eastman Hill RD, Willseyville, NY 13864 Award Title or Description: SBIR Phase I: Polymer electrolyte membrane synthesis to enable low cost, durable fuel cells through novel material innovation Abstract at Time of Award The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to develop alkaline anion exchange membranes (AAEM) to enable lower cost and durable fuel cells. Widespread adoption of fuel cell technologies has been difficult due to high costs, which are mostly due to use of precious metal catalysts and the expensive polymer electrolyte components. Using AAEM technology allows the use less expensive non- precious metal catalysts (e.g. stainless steel, nickel, cobalt, and their alloys). Non-precious metals have facile electrochemical reaction kinetics and are stable under alkaline operating conditions making them prime candidates as catalysts. Moreover, the polymer electrolyte, in this case the AAEM, when manufactured at scale should be less expensive than the current technology. This technology has the potential to enable the widespread deployment of fuel cell systems by reducing cost and making fuel cells more economically competitive. The technical objectives of this Phase I research project are to decrease the number of steps in the synthesis pathway of AAEMs, while simultaneously reducing time and increasing yields. These reductions in the number of steps will provide time and raw materials savings in the overall synthesis of the polymer. The increased yield of the reaction will ensure more efficient use of raw materials that in the end will provide a more sustainable pathway to make the AAEMs, while providing some added cost benefits. Increasing the reaction yields and decreasing the number of steps will provide reductions in production time that can be directly related to increasing

manufacturing efficiency and lowering labor costs. The technical objectives will provide necessary information to scale-up production of AAEMs. Proving these technical development milestones is of crucial importance for the further development, specifically scale-up, and commercialization of our technology. Clairvoyant Technology LLC 3622 Lyckan Parkway, Suite 2006, Durham, NC 27707-2564 Award Title or Description: SBIR Phase I: Polar Transmitter for Ultra High Frequency Radio Identification Readers Abstract at Time of Award The broader impact/commercial potential of this project is of such scope and diversity it can be difficult to capture. Over the coming decades passive UHF RFID will become a pervasive technology, not just in industrial, manufacturing, commercial, and retail operations but in the everyday lives of ordinary people. As passive UHF RFID makes its way into homes and appliances to help automate and simplify peoples' lives, the Gen2 readers must simultaneously have excellent dense reader performance and be small, inexpensive, and low power. The impact of this project includes a deeper understanding of polar transmitter application in UHF radios, in particular the achievable efficiency, linearity, and spectral purity in a pure switch mode envelope amplifier with no linear assistance. By focusing on GaN devices for all class-D envelope switching and class-E RF switching this project may be used as a step toward a true single chip, high output power UHF RFID reader using GaN-on-Si integrated circuit techniques. Such a low power, high performance reader chip would be an enabling component needed for the ubiquitous deployment of passive UHF RFID in the IoT. This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project focuses on improving the power efficiency of the radio frequency power amplifier (RFPA) for ultra- high frequency (UHF) radio frequency identification (RFID) readers. In particular, the passive UHF RFID protocol known as Gen2 constitutes a substantial percentage of the Internet of Things (IoT), since most of the network’s endpoints do not have radio capabilities and will rely on Gen2 tags to be part of the network. A pervasive deployment of Gen2 infrastructure in retail, manufacturing, and distribution centers may require hundreds of readers in a single facility. Current technology requires expensive, bulky, power hungry RFID readers. The objective of the research is to develop a proof of concept for a new polar transmitter demonstrating nearly 85% reduction in the dissipated heat of the reader RFPA. The new RFPA architecture will employ a novel modulation format with continuously differentiable amplitude and phase signals enabling a pure switch mode polar RFPA while maintaining full time and frequency domain Gen2 dense reader compliance. The anticipated results are efficiency, linearity, and spurious noise performance tradeoffs given design parameters of the class D switch mode envelope amplifier and class E switch mode polar RFPA output stage. Software Motor Corporation 1295 Forgewood Avenue, Sunnyvale, CA 94089-2216 Award Title or Description: SBIR Phase I: Designing High Efficiency Small Scale Motors using Switched Reluctance Technology Abstract at Time of Award The broader impact/commercial potential of this project are that 1 to 5 hp motors represent 58% of the total number of installed motors in the United States due to the prevalence of heating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. A 10-15% improvement in efficiency in these systems is expected to save more than $1000 in electricity over the 10- year lifetime of each motor. As such, installing this motor in just 1% of applications would translate to $500M / year in electricity savings and result in a reduction of more than

1 million tons / year of carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. alone. In addition, since the device uses internet of things microprocessors it can potentially be connected to a broader network, allowing monitoring and tuning to efficiency to be done in a manner not possible with traditional motor designs. This means that changes can be made in motor software, or learning algorithms can be applied in industry-specific settings to further improve performance over time. This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will aim to address a number of unsolved research problems with switched reluctance (SR) electric motors at small scale (1 to 5 hp). Specifically, the proposed research will develop optimization and control algorithms for a novel high pole HR-SR motor utilizing low-cost microprocessors of the type used in internet of things applications. These algorithms will address control issues that remain unsolved for such motors including torque ripple, high speed real-time control, and non-linear performance. This is an unsolved issue since 1? 5 hp motors have low angular momentum and require high speed sensing and adjustment as well as real-time optimization to achieve high efficiency. (There are no such designs commercially manufactured today.) This research will also perform analysis of the physical design of HR-SR motors using finite element analysis to optimize the mechanical design of the motor, reduce noise and heat levels and increase efficiency. The proposed approach will produce a low-cost design that has better efficiency than high-cost ECM motors, but at the price point of low- cost low-efficiency induction motor designs.
