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. Aerosol Instrumentation Package for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: BRECHTEL MANUFACTURING, INC.            Topic: 8213

    Development of a Compact Aerosol Instrumentation Suite for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

  2. A Universal Commuter Railcar Boarding Device for Use by Both Disabled and Able-bodied Individuals Configurable for all U.S. Railstation Platforms

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I of this SBIR project the proposed commuter railcar loading concept was developed in detail and its operation was simulated in order to demonstrate feasibility and to quantify the reduction in station dwell time compared to other railcar loading operations. Feasibility was demonstrated. The boarding system will enable the loading of all passengers, regardless of mobility, from a wide r ...

  3. Technology for Controlling Net Weight of Fish Fillets

    SBC: Dantec Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Processing of fish into fillets and in further processing into consumer portion packs results a significant amount of fish muscle being discarded. Although the quality of this discarded meat is equal to that of the fillet, the odd shapes and bone content makes it unusable directly in the production of fillets. The discards can amount from 10 to 30% of the produced finished fillet weight, and the g ...

  4. Establishing a New (Cacao) Orchard Industry for Hawaii

    SBC: Great Pacific Chocolate Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Cacao trees grow and produce well in Hawaii but high costs and low international prices for beans would make it unprofitable if farmers had to sell at these prices. By establishing a small-scale chocolat d origin gourmet chocolate factory in Kona that produces a high-value product for a limited target market, we can pay prices for cocoa beans that are well above international market value - prices ...

  5. Innovative Tools and Methods for Mating Disruption of the Carob Moth

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The gypsy moth (GM), Lymantria dispar, is one of North Americas most devastating forest pests, defoliating 75 million acres of northeast forest, and is steadily expanding its range into hardwood forests throughout the U.S. The USDA National Slow the Spread Project (STS) is expected to suppress infestations into new territories. The USDA reports that the current use of two key tools for STS, larvic ...

  6. Development of a Novel Cold-tolerant, Disease-resistant Shrimp by Intraspecific Hybridization

    SBC: Kona Bay Marine Resources            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to develop a new line of cold-tolerant, disease-resistant shrimp which will provide distinct commercial advantages to shrimp farmers in non-tropical climates, such as the United States, where colder water temperatures and pathogens restrict shrimp production. Successful development of this novel shrimp line will allow U.S. shrimp farmers to significantly increase pro ...

  7. Controlling Varroa Mites in the Honey Bee, Apis Mellifera

    SBC: S.A.F.E R&D            Topic: N/A

    Varroa jacobsoni (Oudemans) (=V.destructor) is a parasitic mite of honey bee Apis mellifera (L.), that has had a catastrophic effect in honey bee populations, commercial pollination and the beekeeping industry across the U.S. and worldwide. The objective is to develop alternative methodologies to control Varroa through systemic and contact introduction of essential oils through a unique delivery s ...

  8. An Analysis System for Operations and Environmental Impact of Offshore Tuna Farms

    SBC: System Science Applications            Topic: N/A

    Commercial culture of fish in ocean cages has grown rapidly in the past several years, but the U.S. remains a minor producer despite the fact that it imports over $10 billion of seafood annually. Concerns about environmental impact and the associated difficulty of obtaining licenses have proven a major obstacle. Our software program, AquaModel, provides quantitative estimates of the dispersion and ...

  9. A Cross-Disciplinary Environment for Computationally and Data Intensive Applications in the Geosciences

    SBC: 3dgeo Development Inc.            Topic: 43

    The exploration and production of oil and natural gas is one of the most computationally demanding endeavors, generating terabytes of data. To optimize the management of a producing oil field or to find new reserves, the E and P data must be readily available to a multidisciplinary asset management team. The data must be easy to access, and it must be effectively managed by a team of geologists, ...

  10. High Sensitivity, Low Cost Fluorescence Detection for Beryllium Particulates

    SBC: Ajjer, Llc            Topic: 06

    The unique properties of beryllium (Be) have lead to many applications, ranging from the aerospace and nuclear industry to manufacturing and electronics. Unfortunately, beryllium is a Class A EPA carcinogen and, when inhaled into the lungs, can cause an incurable and potentially fatal lung disease. This project will demonstrate the use of fluorescence to improve the detection limit for beryllium ...
