The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Vessel Launched Unmanned Aerial System for Marien Debris Detection and Tracking

    SBC: Airborne Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 843

    Airborne Technologies, Inc. Phase I effort will be to design and demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low-cost, marinized Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that can be operated easily from small or large vessels and is capable of reliable and repeatable operations in an ocean environment. The UAS will be utilized for the detecting and tracking of marine debris, sea-life or other objects in the ...

  2. A miniature aerosol nephelometer for deployment in dropsondes or UAVs

    SBC: Droplet Measurement Technologies, LLC            Topic: 822

    Two, complementary techniques are proposed that are deployable on dropsondes or mobile measurement platforms and measure the scattering coefficient of atmosphere aerosols. The Phase I activity will be a proof of concept study that evaluates the relative strengths and weaknesses of the two measurement systems and combines a detailed analysis of the optical and electronic systems with a laboratory ...

  3. Lightning Probability Nowcasting and Forecasting with PRA Strike Insight Technology

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 841

    There is a strong correlation between cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning and the altitude of the 40-dBZ radar reflectivity levels with respect to the height of the -100C level. T he proposed Phase I effort will develop an algorithm for lightning probability based upon these studies, perform basic assessment, prototype a web page for dissemination of the lightning probability or threat risk, and assess ...

  4. A Web-based Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2)

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    Water managers are increasingly recognizing climate change as a significant issue and are requesting detailed information about potential hydrologic impacts suitable for inclusion in planning. Available studies, however, are most often academic in nature and have the added limitation of being incompatible with agency specific water management models or the streamflow period of interest. Commissi ...

  5. A Novel CO2 Sensor for Closed Circuit Mixed Gas Rebreathers

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 819S

    A new, solid-state, carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor for use with closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers is proposed. This novel, polymer composite sensor will be small, low power, and low cost. This sensor will be incorporated with closed circuit rebreathers, allowing the NOAA Advanced Diving Program to perform longer, deeper dives. The use of closed circuit rebreathers provide many advantages over d ...

  6. Locking Mechanism for Rotating Seats

    SBC: Kustom Seating Unlimited Inc. (KSU)            Topic: 07FR1

    Research is proposed to develop a locking mechanism for intercity (Amtrak) rotating seats that can be retro-fit to existing seats. Current intercity rail seats, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), present a safety hazard to the riding public. Post accident investigations show that passenger rail seats were found to have been uncontrollably rotated even though current se ...

  7. Advanced Truck for High Speed Freight Operations

    SBC: Sharma & Associates, Inc.            Topic: 01FR1

    During Phase 1 of the project, Sharma & Associates, Inc. developed a concept for high speed freight truck intended for 70-ton, regular freight and bi-modal operation, at speeds up to 150 mph. The truck uses a rigid frame and an indpendent, compliant, primary suspension for its basic architecture. Constant contact side-bearings and yaw dampers were also added to improve dynamic performance. Vehi ...

  8. New Crop Opportunity for Semiarid Dryland Production Systems

    SBC: BLUE SUN BIODIESEL LLC            Topic: N/A

    Situation More than 63% of the petroleum we need daily is imported, with steady increases projected. Our national security is threatened by this growing dependence on foreign oil, and we need to reverse the trend. A key segment of the nation's farmers in the Central High Plains region of the western U.S. (with access to nearly 6 million marginal dryland acres) can play an important role in this ef ...

  9. CycloForming of Crude Glycerol

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), 68% of the petroleum oil consumed by the U.S. is used for transportation. Diesel fuel constitutes over 25% of the nation's total fuel use. The U.S. consumes 90,000 gallons of diesel fuel every 60 seconds, producing significant greenhouse gases in the process. The increased use of biofuels such as biodiesel benefits Americans by creating a n ...

  10. Development of a Novel Feral Hog Toxicant

    SBC: GENESIS LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    Feral hogs, European wild hogs, Russian wild hogs, wild boars, razorbacks, rooters, or hybrids of these are all names for the same species, Sus scrofa. Feral hog populations are spreading across the United States with little resistance from the private and public sector, causing considerable damage in their wake. We are suggesting control by a means not currently used in the United States, but has ...
