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. Developing Mango Graph Studio and its Applications for Bioinformatics and Systems Biology

    SBC: Complex Computation, LLC            Topic: 01b

    Modern genomic and post-genomic research produced huge amount of heterogeneous data that must be integrated and analyzed together- Systems biology aims at utilizing these data to help model complex biological systems and further our understanding of living beings, so we may cure more diseases or harvest more renewable bio-energies in the future- However, construction and manipulation of complex gr ...

  2. High-Efficiency 952-6-MHz Power Amplifier for JLEIC


    Accelerators used for nuclear-physics research require megawatts of radio-frequency energy- They currently employ vacuum-tube power amplifiers or conventional solid-state amplifiers that are inefficient and therefore consume a great deal of prime power- Many other applications including semiconductor processing, cellular-telephone base station transmitters, and military communication systems simil ...

  3. Two-Dimensional Surface Emitting Mid-Wave Infrared (MWIR) Interband Cascade Laser Arrays for High-Power Applications

    SBC: Firefly Photonics, LLC            Topic: N181-016

    We propose achieving high power mid-infrared arrays with interband cascade vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSEL). Unlike quantum cascade lasers, optical selection rules in interband cascade lasers allow vertical emission. The massive parallelism of a VCSEL array will allow small, low power lasers to achieve high total output power with no speckle due to spatial incoherence across the arr ...

  4. Optimizing InAs/InAsSb transport using predictive electronic structure code for carrier dynamics including Auger recombination

    SBC: QuantCAD LLC            Topic: AF17-CT04

    A model will be developed and validated for electronic transport calculations using a highly accurate, predictive electronic structure code that currently produces electronic structure, optical absorption, radiative and Auger recombination rates for InAs/InAsSb strained-layer superlattices from 5K-300K. The approach will use the novel formulation of Auger recombination pioneered at U. Iowa which d ...

  5. Identification of Black Cattle that Resist Salmonella

    SBC: PSR Genetics LLC            Topic: 8.3

    The long-term goal of this research is to improve food safety and animal well being by promoting Salmonella-resistant beef cattle. Salmonella is increasingly prevalent in hamburger because this bacteria can infiltrate small tissues of the immune that are unavoidably ground into hamburger. The specific objective of this particular application is to develop a test that identifies black cattle bearin ...

  6. Production of selenium-enriched microalgae as an animal feed supplement

    SBC: GROSS-WEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 8.7

    The primary goal of this proposal is to investigate the potential of generating an alternative source of organically bound selenium from microalgae. Selenium is commonly supplemented into animal feed, nutraceuticals, and human food due to its numerous health benefits. Selenium has been reported to prevent cardiovascular and neurological diseases, aging, infertility, thyroid function, and infection ...

  7. Customizable Science Informational Texts to Support K-5 Teachers Implementing the Common Core and NGSS

    SBC: StarrMatica Learning Systems, Inc.            Topic: 8.6

    Quality schools positively influence the economic development prospects in rural areas. They not only attract business and industry to the area, but they produce the educated labor force that is needed to sustain the economic growth of rural areas. The greatest source of a highly educated population in rural areas is native individuals who attended college locally or return home after completing t ...

  8. Deriving A New Biobased Product From Wastewater: Production Of A Slow Release Algal-Based Fertilizer

    SBC: GROSS-WEN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 8.8

    The goal of this project is to continue the success of our Phase I proof-of-concept work by implementing a full-scale, algal-based treatment system to remove nutrients (such as nitrogen and phosphorus) from wastewater in small rural communities and to produce a pelletized, slow-release algal fertilizer as a value-added byproduct.Problem/Opportunity:Nutrient pollution in our nation's waterways ...

  9. Scaling and Broad Application of PowerPollen: A Reliable Method to Preserve Maize Pollen

    SBC: Accelerated AG Technologies, LLC            Topic: 8.2

    The seed industry generates tremendous value from hybrid crops relative to varietal or self-pollinated crops. For example, while corn (a hybrid crop) and soybeans (a self-pollinated crop) were planted on approximately the same land area in the U.S. in 2017, the total value of the corn hybrid seed industry was greater than 4x the value of the soybean seed industry. However, producing hybrid seed is ...

  10. Design Environment for Educator-Student Collaboration Allowing Real-Time Engineering-centric, STEM (DESCARTES) Exploration in Middle Grades

    SBC: Parametric Studio, Inc.            Topic: none

    DESCARTES is a game-based engineering environment where students design, test, and build projects, including boats, airplanes, and other models. The web-based student-facing environment will include challenges, topic introductions, tutorials, and tools for analyzing and improving projects. Following completion of a concept in the environment, students will then build and test real world prototypes ...
