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. Crowding Information Collection and Dissemination System

    SBC: Arcon Corporation            Topic: 171FT1

    Train car crowding is a key issue resulting in passenger dissatisfaction and degraded transit service. One reason for train car crowding is an uneven distribution of passengers among the train cars which results in overcrowding of certain cars while leaving other cars sparsely occupied. If passengers waiting at a station are informed about the expected crowding levels in the arriving train, they c ...

  2. Detection of THC Use in Drivers

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 171NH1

    Driving under the influence of marijuana, the most commonly used illicit drug in the United States is reported to double the risk of crash involvement. As marijuana decriminalization and legalization measures continue to gain acceptance, the potential number of drivers using marijuana could rise dramatically, necessitating new ways for law enforcement to combat the pursuant increase in drug relate ...

  3. A Robust Railway Track Crack Detection System Using Thermal Signatures

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 171FR2

    In Phase I, Migma Systems propose to develop a robust system for detection of railway track surface cracks. Automated railway inspection is critical for ensuring the safety of public transportation. Rails often break under trains and broken tracks can lead to train derailment. In Phase I, we will make a prototype sensor with low power microprocessor, IR camera, GPS and temperature/humidity sensor ...

  4. Driver breath measurement of marijuana intoxication by infrared spectroscopy

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: 171NH1

    The intoxicating effects of marijuana are of public safety concern. With the expected increase in the use of this substance it is important to provide law-enforcement officials with a simple driver test for its detection. Because of the presence of the intoxication agent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) vapor in the exhaled breath of marijuana users, it is possible to confirm marijuana intoxication via ...

  5. Bee-friendly dust-free seed coating for pollinator health

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Pollinators, typically honey bees, are critical for marketable yields of around 90 crops, including apples, blueberries, cucumbers and almonds. Honey bees, however, have been under considerable pressure from Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), leading to unprecedented and unsustainable colony losses. Pesticide exposure, especially neonicotinoids in seed coating, is one key stressor causing the general ...

  6. Optimized shellfish aquaculture production barge

    SBC: Ward Aquafarms LLC            Topic: 87

    Shellfish aquaculture in the United States has been expanding rapidly; providing jobs, promoting local economies, and yielding sustainable protein sources for a continuously growing human population. However, industry growth is restricted due to several issues which all directly relate to being able to get the food (microalgae) to the shellfish in an efficient manner. The issue is not that there i ...

  7. Biobased BPA-Free Epoxy Coatings for Food and Beverage Applications

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: 88

    In this Phase 1 SBIR proposal, Vuronyx Technologies will develop biobased isosorbide epoxy precursors as replacement to Bisphenol-A epoxy precursors used currently in "can coatings" for food and beverages.Canning of foods and beverages in tin-plated steel or aluminum is extensively used for food preservation and storage because of low material and productions costs and durability of the containers ...

  8. Energy-Positive Wastewater Treatment and Reuse System For Agriculture Applications

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: 84

    The use of recycled water has never been more important than it is today, especially with California and the Western United States experiencing the worst drought in 500 years.To address the severe and persistent shortage of water,growers in California are increasingly looking to recycled water as a way to consistently meet their irrigation demands. The main challenge for water reuse in agriculture ...

  9. Industrial Relevant Microbial Electrochemical Reactor for Wastewater Processing

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 84

    A new reactor technology is being developed that can process agricultural wastewaters economically while also creating a marketable bioproduct. The combined syngeries of efficiently processing wastewater while also creating a biofuel product for resale helps to economically treat wastewater with a positive energy balance.

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

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Nitrogen 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. Understanding the ...
