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. Large Scale Production of Sex-Selected Embryos by In Vitro Fertilization In Cattle: A New Opportunity for Global Business


    In natural reproduction, the sex ratio is approximately 50:50. In the dairy industry, only female animals (and very few male stud bulls) are productive and most male calves are slaughtered with little financial return to the farmers. This natural limitation costs the dairy industry billions of dollars around the globe. Selecting sex of offspring has long been a dream in the livestock industry. The ...

  2. Partial Saturation Ebb and Flood Watering System

    SBC: Green Growth Properties dba Geremia Greenhouse            Topic: N/A

    Conventional watering uses hose or boom irrigation systems to apply excess water to ensure complete coverage of the entire crop to the point of full saturation of the root medium. This method is costly in terms of water and nutrients. Water falls outside the area of the pots and is lost to the environment. Excess water may leach up to 75% of the fertilizer from potted plants. It may be necessary t ...

  3. Social-Simentor: Interactive Simulation e-Learning Tool to Develop Interpersonal Skills for Individuals with Cognitive Disabilities to Improve Hiring and Retention

    SBC: Access Tech            Topic: N/A

    An interactive application that employs social interactions to teach key social conventions, including appropriate responses, reacting to body language and facial expressions, and the ability to ask for help to facilitate functioning in society

  4. Development of Marine Turbine Using a Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Generator

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: 28c

    79729S Ocean currents constitute a potentially enormous renewable energy resource; however, existing technologies for capturing this energy are only in the prototype stage, are small in scale (less than 1 megawatt), and are not grid-connected. Although there is a considerable overlap in technology with the more mature field of wind energy, new robust technologies will have to be developed that ar ...

  5. Sectional Permanent Magnet Generator and Power Electronics For Multi-Megawatt Direct Drive Wind Turbines

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: 29

    79659S As direct drive wind turbines increase in size, the diameter of their generators increases to the point where it is no longer possible to ship them as a single unit. While some companies have addressed this issue by using wound rotor generators that can be assembled on site, this approach suffers from the inherent lower efficiency and reliability of the wound rotor technology. To date, no ...

  6. A Novel Growth Technique for Large Diameter AlN Single Crystal

    SBC: Fairfield Crystal Technology            Topic: 22

    78072S III-V nitride-based, high brightness, UV and visible light emitting diodes (LEDs) are of a great interest for general illumination, but the low light output efficiencies of current high brightness LEDs are still inadequate. A key material issue preventing the achievement of higher light output efficiency in LEDs is the poor crystalline quality of the nitride epitaxial layers that result fr ...

  7. Ferroelectric Switch for a High-Power Ka-Band Active Pulse Compressor

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 37

    78276S Sources of high-peak-power millimeter-wave radiation are needed for development and testing of components and structures for a future multi-TeV electron-positron collider. A pulse compressor must generate the 200 MW pulses needed to develop structures for the CERN two-beam accelerator, or for a similar high-gradient millimeter-wave accelerator. This project will develop high-power switch ...

  8. High-Power Ka-Band Window and Resonant Ring

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 37b

    78728 A stand-alone 200 MW radio frequency (RF) test station is needed for developing accelerator structures and components for a future high-gradient multi-TeV collider, such as CLIC. In addition, a high-power RF window will be needed to isolate the test station from a structure element under test. This project will develop such a window for use in the frequency range 30-35 GHz, along with a h ...

  9. 20-MW Magnicon for ILC

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 37b

    78413SThe international high-energy physics community has decided to develop superconducting radio frequency (RF) technolgy to be the basis for the International Linear Collider, a 0.5 - 1.0 TeV electron-positron collider that is intended to complement the Large Hadron Collider. The 1.3 GHz RF power needed to drive this accelerator is now planned to be supplied by 600-1200, 10-MW peak power multi ...

  10. Dielectric-Lined High-Gradient Accelerator Structure

    SBC: Omega-P, Inc.            Topic: 37

    78070S The realization of a future multi-TeV electron-positron collider rests, among other factors, upon the development of structures that can sustain high acceleration gradients. This project will develop a rectangular waveguide containing planar dielectric slabs as a high-gradient accelerator structure. This Ka-band, dielectric-loaded rectangular accelerator structure will have high shunt i ...
