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. SBIR Phase I: Smart Diagnostic Cleaning/Sensor Balls for Use in Heat-Exchanger Monitoring and Maintenance

    SBC: Innovas Technologies, LLC            Topic: MI

    The broader impact/commercial potential of this project lies in the creation and test of a submersible micro mobile-sensor platform intended to measure fluid flow rates and precise temperatures inside shell-and-tube heat-exchangers. This research will empower follow-on capability for tube health and vibration measurement, creating the potential to save millions per employing facility by preventing ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...
