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 Automated Aerosol Lidar for Air Quality Assessment and Prediction

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Oceanit showed the feasibility of a low-cost, compact, lightweight, eye-safe LIDAR suitable for aerosol gradient detection in a Phase 1 effort. The system is based on an eye-safe laser being developed at Oceanit as part of a 3D scanning ceilometer. The laser can operate at greater power than other systems using non-eye-safe wavelengths, thus it eliminates many of the problems associated with low ...

  2. Development of All-Female Populations of Striped Bass


    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Striped bass culture has become the fourth largest form of fish production in the U.S., trailing only catfish, trout, and salmon in terms of market value. Unfortunately, this promising new industry faces considerable market pressure from foreign competitors who often enjoy lower labor, water, and utility costs and fewer environmental regulations than encountered in the U.S. ...

  3. Development of an Organic Hawaiian Herbal Tea Industry

    SBC: Kini Po-Po Creations, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The market for "organic" Hawaiian herbal teas is limited by the fact that most ingredients are wild-crafted. This project examines the possibility of the organic production of Hawaiian herbal products and the associated processing and marketing required to develop a significant market for "organic" Hawaiian herbal teas.

  4. Use of Arabidopsis Transcription Factors to Increase Rubber Yield in Guayule

    SBC: Mendel Biotech Inc            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Natural rubber is a vital and irreplaceable raw material. The United States uses approximately 20% of the global supply for its industries and is completely dependent on imports from developing countries. A dependable rubber supply is endangered by many factors, including susceptibility to pathogen attack, diminishing acreage as growers move toward higher value crops, increa ...

  5. Production of High-Grade Germline Chimeras for Genetic Manipulation of Chickens

    SBC: ORIGEN THERAPEUTICS            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The rate of germline transmission of chicken ES cells is usually low. This project examines the use of Stage VIII-IX embryos as recipients in the production of chimeras with ES cells to increase the rate of germline transmission.

  6. Synchronized Multimedia E-Book Development for Reading Fluency and Comprehension

    SBC: US Teach, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this project is to study the relation between the use of computer-based multimedia e-books and children's reading fluency and comprehension. The researchers are carrying out the project in three phases. In the first phase, the researchers are observing 3rd grade students' use of e-book materials over a 15-week period and are developing a model of fluency and comprehension change bas ...

  7. An Inexpensive, Efficient Neutron Monochromator

    SBC: Adelphi Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70585S02-II The most favored techniques for monochromatizing neutron beams, needed for medical, industrial and scientific purposes, are mechanical reflection and diffraction methods, both of which have limited efficiency and great cost. Furthermore, neutrons can be used for imaging, particularly for objects that are invisible to x-rays, light, or other techniques; however, neutron imaging has ...

  8. Speciated Organic Composition of Atmospheric Aerosols: A New In-Situ Instrument

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70753B02-II Energy production and the combustion of fossil fuels are sources of organic aerosols that have been linked to environmental degradation, human health problems, and changes in the radiative transfer properties of earth¿s atmosphere. New techniques are needed for the time-resolved in-situ characterization of the organic composition of atmospheric aerosols in order to understand thei ...

  9. Micro-Java Building Environment Controller

    SBC: Broadata Communications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70114S02-II Because lighting in the U.S. uses 20 quadrillion BTU's annually, any incremental improvements in lighting efficiency could yield major national savings. Therefore, this project will develop a Micro-Java Building Environment Controller (MJBEC) for real-time intelligent lighting management, using existing AC power lines for communications. The MJBEC will be suitable for the control ...

  10. Development of a 50 MW Multiple Beam Klystron

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    70188 For the ultra high-power, X-band klystrons required by the Next Linear Collider (NLC) and future high energy particle accelerators and colliders, the Department of Energy, in 1988, established the goal of achieving a radio frequency (RF) peak output power of 100 MW at a pulse width of 1 s. This goal has not yet been realized. In 1995, the goal was relaxed to a peak power of 75 MW and a ...
