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. Low-Cost Transportable HF Skywave Radar

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: N/A

  2. N/A

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This is a Phase 2 proposal to develop an instrument to simultaneously measure particle size, velocity, and concentration in applications characterized by a large size range and high particle concentration. The instrument will be based on the Pulse Displacement Technique whose feasibility was demonstrated during Phase 1. Experiments performed during Phase 1 demonstrated a high accuracy in meas ...

  3. N/A

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As ever more of industry and commerce moves onto electronic networks, there is a growing appreciation for the usefulness of expressive general models of enterprise activities, such as design and manufacturing. Ontologies are commitments to formal declarative multi-purpose representations with clear semantics that can serve as a solid foundation for such models. While there has been much work ...

  4. Development of Real-Time PCR Assays for the Detection of Viruses in Penaeid Shrimp

    SBC: Super Shrimp, Inc.            Topic: N/A

  5. N/A

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: N/A

    As flip-chip bonding becomes the predominant standard in the electronics industry, the increased proximity between dice surfaces and packaging materials will require a significant reduction in the latter's alpha particle activity in order to avoid soft errors. Emission rates at or below 0.001 a/cm2/hr are desirable, which is well below the 0.0050 a/cm2/hr capability of today's best detectors. ...

  6. A Device to Package a Semi-Solid Diet for Rearing Arthropod Predators

    SBC: Beneficial Insectary, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A new semisolid artificial diet enclosed in membranes that allow feeding by the predacious green lacewing, Chrysoperla rufilabris, has been invented by USDA/ARS scientist A. Cohen. Phase I studies conducted by Beneficial Insectary showed that the Cohen diet in the Cohen food pack was superior in several key areas to the live insect diet currently used for commercial mass rearing of C. rufilabris. ...

  7. Improvement of a Bio-PCR Test for Routine Detection of Watermelon Fruit Blotch Pathogen

    SBC: CalSPL            Topic: N/A

    Fruit blotch is a serious seedborne disease of watermelon. In an attempt to control this disease, the seed industry has adopted a zero tolerance of infected seeds. Available tests for detecting infected seeds include grow-out, liquid plating, classical PCR tests. These tests are either not sensitive enough, resulting in false negative, not specific enough, resulting in false positives, or are very ...

  8. Filters to Provide Potable Water from As-Contaminated Waters

    SBC: CHK GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the recent EPA ruling, published in the Federal Register (January 22, 2001), to lower the As levels in drinking waters from the current Maximum Contaminants levels (MCL) of 50 ppb to 10 ppb. Furthermore, it has reported that 2,300 groundwater systems in small communities ranging from 25 to 500 (which make up 67% of the groundwater systems) will be out of compliance; whereas ...

  9. Maximizing Nutrient Utilization of High-Energy Feeds in Striped Bass Aquaculture


    We will conduct research on nutrition and food intake regulation mechanism in hybrid striped bass. We will determine: 1) how dietary energy density, satiated feeding, energy-to-protein ratios, fish size, and temperature affect food and energy consumption rates; 2) how "high-energy" diets can improve growth and feed conversion; and 3) how these diets affect fish health, effluent water quality, and ...

  10. Development of a Closed Recirculating Viral-Pathogen Free Postlarvae Production Center for Native Species

    SBC: Lone Star Farm            Topic: N/A

    Increased restrictions on wild live-bait shrimp catches combined with significant annual increases in demand suggest that the supply problem of this industry will continue if no alternative source of live bait shrimp is established. The major obstacles in the development of the farm-raised live bait shrimp industry are the need for domesticated pathogen-free postlarvae (PL), the lack of reliable m ...
