IFOS SBIR Proposal to NSF

started 27May07 -mrc

NSF Links and Notes

Due date: June 13 via Fastlane.

Link to solicitation document: http://www.nsf.gov/eng/iip/sbir/

Tech section limited to 15 pages Palatino/Arial/Helvetica font.

Brevity will assist reviewers and Foundation staff in dealing effectively with proposals. Therefore, the Project Description (including Results from Prior NSF Support, which is limited to five pages) may not exceed 15 pages. %ENDCOMMENT%

Note that if we are proposing in the "emerging technologies" (3-5 year likey commercialization opportunity) then the proposals total page count must include:

Mandatory Requirement: In addition to the standard criteria of the NSF SBIR/STTR program, a substantive description of the Commercial Potential for the innovation must be part of an EO proposal. The appropriate amount of space within the project description to dedicate toward the Commercial Potential for the EO topic is 3 to 5 pages. If the description for Commercial Potential (part 5 of the Project Description) within the 3 to 5 page range, the proposal will be considered non-responsive returned without review for failing to fall within the scope of the EO topic. %ENDCOMMENT%

Else could propose in the Electronics (EL) area, which includes photononics: http://www.nsf.gov/eng/iip/sbir/el2007.pdf Actually, this looks perhaps more promising as it includes the following subtopics:

  • Sensors/ A.4 Sensors for life sciences, medical applications and systems (I guess we can't say that endoscopic tools are non-invasive, only "minimally"
  • Robotics/ I.4 Medical devices that provide robotic exoskeletons to enhance emphasis on human-centered of augmentation
