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. Optimization of a unique freezing system for boar sperm


    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 ...

  2. Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) for Wildland Fire Management

    SBC: Unmanned Experts Inc.            Topic: 81

    Unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and small UAS (SUAS) technology hold great promise for facilitating the management of wildfires on forest lands. However technology is only a small part of the problem of integrating UAS into fireground operations. Significant concerns must be addressed about the coordination of air assets in the high-risk operational wildland fire airspace environment, which can be ...

  3. Development Of A Microbial Metabolite-Based Biostimulant To Enhance Profitability And Competitiveness Of Controlled Environment Agriculture

    SBC: GROWCENTIA, INC.            Topic: 813

    Tomato growers face multiple challenges: low profit margins, increased crop stress, and strong global competition. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) is an increasingly important component of a sustainable supply chain for tomatoes and other specialty crops, but incurs high capital costs. New technologies are needed to increase the competitiveness of US tomato growers, whether in CEA or fiel ...

  4. A Compact, Low Cost, Broad Range, Hyperspectral Imager for Precision Agriculture

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: 813

    Hyperspectral imagery produces images that include colors both within and beyond the range of colors that can be seen by the human eye. Hyperspectral Imagery allows for the classification, identification, and detection of vegetation phenomena that relate to the agricultural industry, including: plant species identification, insect and disease detection and monitoring, stress detection, soil qualit ...

  5. Novel Oxidant Product Formulation for Greenhouse Disinfection

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The greenhouse requires an environment that has optimum nutrients, temperature, water and light so that it is conducive to rapid, healthy plant growth. Undesirable organisms also grow in such an environment, including disease-causing microbial plant pathogens and slimy microbial biofilm organisms that are difficult to remove and can cause worker hazards. Growers need a universally effective antimi ...

  6. Honeybee Health Monitoring and Management System to Improve Survival Rates and Colony Strength

    SBC: HiveTech Solutions, LLC            Topic: 82

    The demand for pollination services from honeybees is expected to increase from 1.7 to 2.5 million colonies by 2027. However, beekeepers are continuing to see an average of 40% losses each year. Most of these losses occur during winter, before the almond bloom in February. Varroa mites continue to be the biggest problem for beekeepers. Dozens of products are on the market, yet with variation in be ...

  7. High-Resolution Cloud Probe for the ArcticShark UAV and Tethered Balloon Systems

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: 20a

    The Arctic is warming at a rate that is nearly twice the global average. Low, shallow, stratus clouds are persistent from spring through early winter in the Arctic and are strong contributors to warming and ice melt in the Arctic. These clouds allow visible sunlight to penetrate to the surface, but trap long- wave radiation emanating upwards from the surface. The result is a cloud blanket that war ...

  8. RemoteSTREAMM: A Web Application for Running HPC Materials Simulations in the Cloud

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: 13a

    Computation plays an important role in materials science, engineering, nanotechnology, pharmaceutical research and many other research fields. Faster time to market, increased return on investment, and enabling new products are common reasons computation is used in product development. However, surveys have shown that moderate sized companies are only slowly adopting materials simulations and taki ...

  9. Simulation of nanoscale high-efficiency thermionic converters

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 02b

    The design and fabrication of vacuum nano-electronic devices is essential to the present and future US economy and energy sources. Highly-resolved 3D electrostatic particle-in-cell (PIC) simulations are required to correctly model and optimize their fabrication and operation; however, the associated run-time and complexity of such HPC codes is prohibitive. The Scientific Discovery through Advanced ...

  10. Accurate Spin Tracking on Modern Computer Architectures for Electron-Ion Colliders

    SBC: RadiaSoft LLC            Topic: 25e

    Electron-ion colliders (EICs) are the best microscopes for studying the structure of nuclear matter, particularly the nature and origin of spin in nuclei. To be effective, such machines require electron and ion beams with polarizations as high as 80%. Comprehensive end-to-end simulations to study the spin dynamics and optimize the beam polarization require exorbitant computational effort. Technica ...
