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. An eddy covariance system for simultaneous flux measurements of total reactive nitrogen, ammonia, and nitrogen oxides (NOx).

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 84

    SummaryNitrogen balance plays a critical role in agricultural food security and biodiversity. While some nitrogen addition, such as fertilization, is highly beneficial to agriculture, too much can result in lower crop yields and plant loss. Air pollution can tip the nitrogen balance toward unhealthy soil and poor growing conditions and affect a plant's ability to cope with drought. Understandi ...

  3. Innovative IEP Goal Creation: Equipping Special and General Educators

    SBC: EDUCATION MODIFIED INC            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through previous research and development, the team created a teacher platform that suggests research-based strategies for supporting students with special needs or targeted skill gaps. This project will develop a prototype of a dashboard for teachers to create, access, and track student's Individual Educational Plans (IEPs). At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study with six middle school special e ...

  4. Mix Libris

    SBC: FABLE VISION, INC.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    Through a previous grant award from the U.S. Department of Education, researchers developed Read for Success, an intervention designed to stem the summer slide among struggling readers. This project will develop a prototype of Mix Libris, an Augmented Reality (AR) enhanced mobile literacy platform designed to support and motivate grade 3 students in acquiring and improving literacy skills. Mix Lib ...

  5. Real-Time Formative Assessment of NGSS Mathematics Practices for High School Physical Science

    SBC: Apprendis LLC            Topic: 99190018R0006

    Through previous grant awards from IES and the National Science Foundation and an ED/IES SBIR award, researchers developed a virtual laboratory with performance-based simulations aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in physical, life, and earth science for middle school, as well as a dashboard to provide teachers real-time formative and summative assessment reports on students doing ...

  6. On-Farm Conversion of Solar Energy, Water, and Carbon Dioxide to Hydrocarbon Fuel

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 812

    Fossil fuels are the dominant energy source in the agriculture sector, comprising a large fraction of farming operational expenditures and emitting CO2 as a greenhouse gas. Despite recent market penetration, renewable energy adoption on farms remains low. Large capital costs, intermittency, and immobility of renewable energy prevents adoption on small and mid-size farms. A particularly detrimental ...

  7. Small and Mid-size Farm Efficiency Ecosystem

    SBC: Boston Labs Design and Development LLC            Topic: 812

    Small farms are critical to the futureof America. Small farms promote and sustain communities, create jobs, improve the health of the land and of the people who live on it. Currently small to mid-sized farms raising pasture-based livestock have been left to invent/build their own feeding/watering systemsand are at a disadvantage to large, fully automated, high-efficiency systems on large scale far ...

  8. Combined Fermentation-based Biosynthesis and Whole-Animal Screening Platform for Biobased Nematicide Discovery & Commercialization

    SBC: MANUS BIOSYNTHESIS, INC.            Topic: 813

    Plant parasitic nematodes cause over $125 billion USD a year in food production losses, or over 12% of all crops. Regulatory changes are resulting in fewer options for nematode control for farmers and requiring that new products be more sustainable in use. Optimized through evolutionary processes for biological activity, natural products (NPs) are a rich source of bioactive molecules that are biod ...

  9. Cloud Effects Correction Of Drone-Collected Crop Imagery For Precision Agriculture

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 813

    The effect of cloud shadows on aerial imagery is an unsolved problem that has been identified by many operators of unmanned aerial vehicle (drone)-based remote sensing systems for agriculture. Shadows affect the ability to compare imagery, including multispectral and hyperspectral imagery (MSI and HSI), taken over periods of time, and the ability to quantify image data analytics, including NDVI an ...

  10. "Wide-Area and Local-Area Water Characterization in Underlying Soil Using Cost-Effective, Directional Detectors and Novel Moderation Designs"

    SBC: Silverside Detectors Inc.            Topic: 84

    The Cosmic-ray Neutron Sensing (CRNS) method can measure the water content of soil with 2% accuracy (under optimal conditions) for agriculture-sized (ie., hectometers) scale. The method uses a neutron detector situated above ground in the center of the measurement area, monitoring in real-time the emission of cosmic-ray produced neutrons from the soil. The simple, non-invasive measurement can prov ...
