January 29, 2013 - NIST, through its Small Business Innovation Research program, invites small businesses to propose solutions to specific challenges in the fields of cybersecurity and manufacturing. SBIR Phase I awards provide up to $90,000 over performance period of 7 months and are intended to determine if proposed research is feasible and how well awardee performs that research. Phase I awardees are eligible to apply for Phase II funding to further develop their technology.

Press release date: January 24, 2013

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), through its Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program, invites small businesses to propose solutions to specific challenges in the fields of cybersecurity and manufacturing.

SBIR Phase I awards provide up to $90,000 over a performance period of seven months and are intended to determine if the proposed research is feasible and how well the awardee performs that research. Phase I awardees are eligible to apply for Phase II funding to further develop their technology.

The NIST 2013 SBIR solicitation names 17 specific technologies for development, including four technology transfer subtopics—inventions and technologies started at NIST that have commercial potential but require more work to be finished products/services for the U.S. marketplace.

In the category of Cybersecurity, the technologies are:
Bragg Grating Enhanced Narrowband Single Photon SPDC Source
Comparison of Privacy-Enhancing Technologies and Features
Development of an SCAP Validation Tool with APIs
Enabling Secure BIOS on Enterprise Systems
Single-Photon Avalanche Diodes with > 95 percent Efficiency

In the category of Manufacturing:
Advanced Tactile Sensing Technology for Robotic Hands
Angularly Sensitive Detectors for Transmission Scanning Electron Microscopy
Electronics System for Microscale Thermogravimetric Nanoparticle Analysis
Flowing Water Optical Power Meter for Laser Measurements
High Temperature Thermocouple and Radiation Thermometer Vacuum Furnace
Highly Multiplexed Spectroscopic Ellipsometer for In-Line Process Control
Life Cycle Impact Analysis Tool for Sustainable Manufacturing
Model-Based Smart Manufacturing of Composite Materials
Nanoparticle Separation: Magnetic Field Opposing a Buoyant Density Gradient
Recirculating Temperature Wave Focusing Chromatography
Three-Dimensional Test Materials for Solid Supports
Workflow Engine for Smart Manufacturing

The SBIR program identifies and solicits proposals in subtopics that fall within NIST’s mission and allow collaboration between NIST scientists and the SBIR awardees whenever possible. In order to ensure a greater strategic alignment between the SBIR program and NIST’s laboratory research program, the SBIR topics are based on the investment priorities identified in the NIST Programmatic Plan (see www.nist.gov/director/planning/planning.cfm).

In the interest of competitive fairness, communication with NIST concerning a specific technical topic or subtopic during the open solicitation period is not allowed, with the exception of the public discussion group at www.nist.gov/sbir. All questions and responses will be publicly, though anonymously, posted on the discussion group webite.

Read the 2013 SBIR solicitation (http://go.usa.gov/4Wf5) for a full explanation of the SBIR process, rules and the specific challenges the proposals should address. Unsolicited proposals, i.e. proposals that do not address the challenges outlined in the SBIR proposal solicitation, will not be accepted. The solicitation closes February 25, 2013.

For general information about the NIST SBIR program, call (301) 975-4188 or send an e-mail to sbir@nist.gov.
