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. Porous Membrane Electrode for Quantitative Detection of Toxins

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 816N

    In Phase I, a novel porous electrode was designed to demonstrate a rapid, simple assay for the detection of domoic acid in marine samples. During Phase II, methods to manufacture porous electrodes will be improved to enable high volume production of low-cost biosensors that can be connected to a potentiostat. These biosensors will be incorporated into a portable test kit for the quantitation of do ...

  3. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Lagrangian pH and pCO2 drifter (SBIR Subtopic 8.3.1C) aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in t ...

  4. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurements in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    This topic requires the capability for enabling high sensitivity/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of a large background calcium concentration. The sensor approach uses the benefits of nano ...

  5. Development of Manufacturing Technology for the Practical Application of Specialized and Environmentally Sensitive Nutrients, Enzymes, Immune-Stimulating Compounds and Biologics to Aquafeeds

    SBC: Zeigler Bros, Inc.            Topic: 823F

    In an effort to support the development of a domestic marine aquaculture industry, Zeigler Bros. Inc., (ZBI) proposes to continue its Phase I research by demonstrating the ability to scale up inclusion particle (IP) manufacturing. During Phase II ZBI will also demonstrate the efficacy of IOs for orally delivering phytase and probiotics to marine finfish. These efforts will directly address the p ...

  6. Size-Selection Aerosol Characterization Instrument

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: G

    We propose to develop anew monitor that provides composition information of particles in the ultrafine (10-100 nm) fine (100 nm– 2.5 µm) and coarse (2.5 – 10 µm) size modes in near real time. Particle monitoring technologies are important for better characterization of the environmental, health and visibility effects of both anthropogenic and biogenic aerosol particles. Current monitoring t ...

  7. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...

  10. Novel Lignin-Based Magnetite Nanocomposites for Removal of Phosphate from Contaminated Waters

    SBC: SYNANOMET, LLC            Topic: B

    Phosphorus (P) remediation is an extremely difficult and costly environmental problem and could cost $44.5 billion dollars for treatment using conventional water treatment plants to meet EPA requirements. Phosphorous runoff can lead to“dead zones” due to eutrophication and can also cause hypoxia, leading to death of aquatic life that thrive in an oxygen-rich environment. None commercial prod ...
