TABA Funding Assists Commercialization Efforts 

Squishy Robotics has been awarded TABA (Technical and Business Assistance) funding as a follow-on to our current National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation and Research (SBIR) Phase II award titled “Rapidly Deployable Mobile Sensor Robots for Disaster Response and Monitoring.” TABA grant funding supports commercialization assistance activities and services. Squishy Robotics will leverage this funding to widen our commercialization focus to the emerging Smart Cities and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) markets.

Squishy Robotics has selected and engaged Dawnbreaker, a New York-based consulting firm that has worked with more than 9,600 SBIR/STTR-funded projects over the last 30 years. As part of its strategic planning and research work for our company, Dawnbreaker will support strategic planning efforts by providing primary and secondary market research and conducting risk assessments. Dawnbreaker will also supplement business planning efforts by developing marketing materials as well as identifying and facilitating introductions to beta site strategic partners.

In addition, TABA funding will pay for services to be provided by National Technical Systems (NTS) for regulatory testing, inspection, and certification services for ingress protection (IP) certification as we prepare to make our first sensor platform commercially available. The international IP certification rates the degree of protection that an encasement or enclosure provides against dust, water, or accidental contact.

“We are delighted that the NSF approved our TABA funding, as it will greatly enhance our commercialization efforts,” said Dr. Alice Agogino, Squishy Robotics CEO. “Contracting with Dawnbreaker as our TABA partner will help us obtain in-depth market research and better understand the current landscape, enabling us to strategically plan entry into additional emerging markets.”

Squishy Robotics COO Deniz Dogruer added, “We were extremely pleased with the commercialization support we received during our prior work with Dawnbreaker during our NSF SBIR Phase I award and look forward to charting future steps for Squishy Robotics as we expand into new markets.”
