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. Development of a biological insect control agent using a sterilizing virus

    SBC: Lepidext L.L.C            Topic: 82

    In 2016, the U.S. planted 94,004,000 acres of corn with a value of $51.5 billion. Unfortunatelyhalf of the sweet cornplanted in the U.S. is unsalable due to corn ear damage caused by insect pests. Because of insects, $30 per acre of corn was spent on pest management or lost to damaged crops in 2003. If that figure is currently accurate, then over $3 billion was lost to insect control or damage in ...

  2. USDA SBIR PHASE II- SCICAST: Stimulating Community Involvement by Cultivating Screencast Technologies

    SBC: Inquiry Technologies, LLC            Topic: 86

    Rural educational systems continue to show alarming trends with regard to lower student achievement, higher drop-out rates, a declining tax base, less parental support, and fewer school resources. Consequently, rural students typically have less access to lab facilities, fewer Advanced Placement (AP) and distance-learning course offerings, and fewer opportunities to get additional academic help at ...

  3. Novel Remediation Technique for PFAS contaminated Soil and Sediment

    SBC: QMetry Corporation            Topic: 17NCER3A

    Both chemicals Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) are very persistent, toxic, and bio-accumulate in the environment and human body. PFAS can end up in soil from multiple sources, often mixed with other pollutants. Because of their unique lipid- and water-repellent characteristics, PFOS and PFOA are used as surface-active agents in various high-temperature applicatio ...

  5. Determining Students' Academic Engagement while Completing Learning Activities and Assessments

    SBC: Tutorgen, Inc.            Topic: edIES15R0005

    With this Phase I funding, the project team will develop and test a prototype of D-TECH, a system to determine students' level of academic engagement while completing computer-based learning activities and assessments. The prototype will integrate within existing third party computer-based programs (e.g., online courseware, educational games, simulations, intelligent tutors) and will consist of a ...

  6. Development of a simple and rapid on-site veterinary fecal egg count test

    SBC: MEP EQUINE SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: 83

    Internal parasites of livestock result in a retardation of weight gain and sigificant economic losses. The main methods for the diagnosis of parasites are almost a centrury old, laboratory-based, time-consuming, laborious and notiriously unreliable. As a result, many animal owners have resorted to treating their animals prophylactically with deworming drugs instead of diagnosing the presence of pa ...

  8. Development of an effective non-antibiotic dry-off agent for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, discarded milk, chronic morbidity, and prophylactic antibiotic use in the dairy industry. The majority of new infections are associated with the dry period, during which the udders are temporarily engorged with milk that often leaks from the teat ends. Furthermore, the three major agencies of the U.S. ...

  9. Cost Effective Seawater Desalination With ICP Element Arrays

    SBC: Okeanos Technologies, LLC            Topic: A

    Lack of fresh water hinders economic development, devastates human health, leads to environmental degradation and foments political instability. We obtain our water from limited and unevenly distributed surface and underground fresh water sources. Over withdrawal from these quasi-renewable sources causes myriad environmental, economic, political and human health problems. In the developing wor ...

  10. Cost Effective Seawater Desalination With ICP Element Arrays

    SBC: Okeanos Technologies, LLC            Topic: A

    Okeanos Technologies is developing a desalination system that used Ion Concentration Polarization (ICP) elements and modular arrays. ICP can separate water from solutes and contaminants far more efficiently than Reverse Osmosis (RO) or Electrodialysis(ED) because no extreme hydraulic pressures or heat sources are needed. The improve efficiency translates into order of magnitude savings in operat ...
