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. High-Spatial and Hyperspectral-Resolution Imaging for Bridge Inspection

    SBC: Aware Vehicles, Inc.            Topic: 180FH2

    High-Spatial and Hyperspectral-Resolution Imaging for Bridge Inspection 3/12/2018 Four out of 10 national bridges have been in service for 50 or more years which have undergone different levels of structural deficiency; other relatively newer bridges are constantly exposed to natural and artificial hazards and are likely structurally deficient in their life cycles. This SBIR project aims to de ...

  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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Development of a low-cost natural pigment production in a GRAS yeast

    SBC: ARCH INNOTEK, LLC            Topic: 88

    Carotenoids, the basic source of yellow, orange and red, are among the most common, naturally occurring pigments. Because of their antioxidant properties and colors, currently, carotenoids are used commercially as feed additives, natural food colorants,??dietary supplements and cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Currently, most of carotenoids used industrially are chemically synthesized from ...

  10. Optimization of a unique freezing system for boar sperm

    SBC: MEMBRANE PROTECTIVE TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: 83

    The ability to freeze boar semen provides several advantages including disease reduction, more rapid genetic transfer, genetic banking, and more precise correlation with optimum female fertility. Although freezing is routine technology in many livestock species, it is not so in teh swine industry. Unfortunately, in boars, sperm quality inconsistencies and poor fertility make this technology commer ...
