Reduction of Heat-Induced Symptoms in Plants with Micro-Phase Change Materials

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1999 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: D Cartwright
Award Amount: $92,397.00


Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: D. Cartwright
Award Amount: $94,207.00
his Small Business Phase Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate microencapsulation technology, including microencapsulated phase change materials (microPCMs), to improve biological control of soilborne plant diseases. Success in this program would enhance the potential of using… More

SBIR Phase I: Co-Encapsulation of Efficacy Enhancers to Improve a Mycoherbicide

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: D. Cartwright
Award Amount: $96,505.00
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to use innovative co-encapsulation processes to enhance infectivity and efficacy of the biocontrol agent, Colletotrichum capsici, for control of the noxious weed "pitted morning glory". The enhancing components to be examined in this… More

Enhancing Mycoherbicide Storage Capabilities Through Encapsulation Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Kelly Cartwright
Award Amount: $77,281.00
Although biocontrol technology, including mycoherbicides, has been investigated for a long period of time, few products have actually made it into the commercial loop. The reasons for this are varied and include unfavorable environmental conditions, small markets and poor shelf-life. The test… More

Automated Generation of Advanced Test Diagrams to Reduce Test Program Set Life-Cycle Costs

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Geoffrey Ingram, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $79,595.00
The three Key Personnel dedicated to the investigation/analysis for this SBIR N101-029 proposal have already designed and developed a working automatic Test Diagram Generator, which we called TDGen. TDGen generated thousands of Test Diagrams for fifteen C130 METS TPSs. The new version of TDGen as a… More

Development of a Mycoherbicide for Control of Dandelion

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: Kelly Cartwright, President
Award Amount: $90,000.00
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program will evaluate a fungal organism as a mycoherbicide for control of dandelion in the turf. Because of significant growth in the turf grass industry and the subsequent increase in use of chemical herbicides, this technology can have impact to… More
