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. Deep Learning-based Vehicle Tracking with Multiple Sensors

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: 180FH3

    Deep Learning-based Vehicle Tracking with Multiple Sensors 3/19/2018 The DOT is seeking an integrated unit that is capable of identifying and tracking individual vehicles with high accuracy using multiple vehicle detection inputs, including video images, radar-based detection, and wireless signal inputs (including DSRC, cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth signals), with a deep learning-based engine ...

  4. Crowdsourcing variety performance data to boost performance, variety adoption and farmer empowerment

    SBC: SEEDLLINKED LLC            Topic: 812

    In today's tight agriculture economy, one of the most important decisions a farmer makes throughout the year is what type of seed to plant. Optimum yield, maturity, and disease resistance for a specific environment will secure farm revenue by creating better production and decreased use of inputs. However, in a highly consolidated industry where the top 3 players control 60% of the seed market ...

  5. An Autonomous Pallet-Stacking Robot for Field Use

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    We propose to develop a lightweight and affordable one-armed autonomous robot to transfer produce from a wheeled transport robot to a pallet. In-field automation improves efficiency by increasing production and/or reducing labor costs by up to $35M/year for California strawberries alone. Our robot will improve health and safety by reducing worker injuries from repeated lifting and by minimizing ch ...

  6. An Accessible Microfluidic Protoplast Selection and Isolation Tool for Transformation and Gene Editing Workflows

    SBC: Nodexus Inc            Topic: 813

    Improvements in genome engineering tools have enabled unprecedented control over genetic material, allowing for tremendous potential for creating new crop varieties. As the world population climbs, there are increasing demands to efficiently produce and distribute food. This challenge, as well as higher temperatures, drought, flooding, pests, and disease place food security among the top of worldw ...

  7. Rapid, Multiplexed Detection of Algal Toxins in Shellfish

    SBC: Mbio Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: 87

    MBio Diagnostics is developing a highly sensitive, inexpensive, easy-to-use test system that will allow growers and regulators to more tightly manage shellfish harvests before, during, and after HAB blooms (see Figure 1). The Interstate Shellfish Sanitation Conference (ISSC) is a primary industry/regulatory cooperative body in the United States, tasked with fostering and improving the sanitation o ...

  8. SPLAT FAW: An inexpensive mating disruption solution to effectively protect row crops from damaging insecticide-resistant fall armyworms.

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 82

    Summary:The objective of this project is to develop SPLAT FAW, a formulation to disrupt the mating of FAW in corn and other row crops, suppressing the pest's population in the treated area as well as the damage inflicted to the crop. An infestation by FAW can cause 15-73% reductions in corn crop yield, leading to losses between $0.5B and $2B a year. This makes FAW a serious liability for agric ...

  9. Economic Electrochemical Denitrification of Recirculating Aquaculture Systems

    SBC: Skyhaven Systems, LLC            Topic: 87

    Skyhaven Systems, LLC intends to develop a novel water treatmentsystem targeted for use in removing nitrogen fromrecirculating aquaculture systems. Limitations of currentsystems include sensitivity to low temperatures, require a multi-step processfor effective nitrogen removal, have long start-up times, produce turbidity during recycling, and are expensive to scale in size/capability. The proposed ...
