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. A Multi-Sensor Hybrid System for Vehicle Classification of Thirteen Classes

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 081FH4

    Image processing methods have been studied and implemented for the vehicle classification over the past decades. The most dominant approach is the use of vehicle dimension, which requires complex processes of sensor calibration as the vehicle dimensions shown in the imagery are heavily dependent on the camera’s field of view. In general, video systems have physical disadvantages related to the ...

  2. Application of Direct Filtration Utilizing Floating Bead Filters and Flocculation Aids for Fine Suspended Solids and Phosphorus Removal

    SBC: AQUACULTURE SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, L.L.C.            Topic: 87

    As aquaculture, particularly marine aquaculture continues to expand worldwide environmental regulations pertaining to waste discharge from fish farms are also becoming more stringent having an environmentally sound waste management, recovery and disposal plan are thus becoming increasingly more important, particularly in marine aquaculture. Two of the primary concerns for extending water reuse and ...

  3. On-board Electrochemical Oxygen Generator for Live Shipments of Wild Seafood and Aquaculture Products

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 87

    U.S. live fish exports are growing and have further potential for growth. In 2009 live fish U.S. exports were on the order of $44 million. In 2012, there was unique opportunity in the live eel export market and there were reports of $100-150 million in exports in that species alone. The overall goal of this project is to provide active oxygenation during the transportation of live aquaculture prod ...

  4. Superior Nutrient Availability, Reduced Metabolic Waste and Increased Energy Efficiency in Aquafeeds

    SBC: NAVITA PREMIUM FEED INGREDIENTS            Topic: 87

    In November 2011 the worlds human population reached 7 billion. Concurrent role shifts in world economies (e.g., competition for seafood products with China) make it necessary for aquaculture to grow at a pace much faster than previously estimated. In addition, the American seafood trade deficit now exceeds $10 billion per year. Clearly, we are at a point when new technologies are desperately need ...

  5. Wide Area Hydrogen Sulfide Monitoring System for Agricultural Enterprises

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: 84

    This sensor development project is responsive to the societal challenge areas of 1) Climate Change and 2) Sustainable Bioenergy. Hydrogen sulfide emissions from agricultural enterprises, especially those associated with large animal feeding lots, can impact the climate. A monitoring system to better map the spatial and temporal distribution of hydrogen sulfide emissions can be factored into local ...

  6. Electrochemical, Multi-gas Air Quality Monitor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 84

    Animal agriculture is a $100 billion per year industry in the United States (Copeland, 2010). Livestock and poultry are raised on an estimated 1.3 million farms throughout the nation. About 238,000 of these farms are considered animal feeding operations (AFO)-agricultural enterprises where animals are kept and raised in confinement that result in emissions to the air of particles and gases such as ...

  7. Web FluidMath

    SBC: FLUIDITY SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of WebFluidMath, a software programto support students who are learning basic algebra principles. To use the Web FluidMath program, students will write math expressions and make drawings on the screen of apen-enabled tablet computer (e.g., iPad, Android, Microsoft Surface). The software will recognize the handwritten math formulae and generate solutions ...

  8. High Power Igniter for Vehicles

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 08b

    Lean-burn engines have the potential to provide more efficient and cleaner operation. However, extremely lean mixtures are more difficult to ignite than the near-stoichiometric mixtures used in todays combustion engines. Reliably igniting extremely lean fuel-air mixtures requires more energy be efficiently delivered to the fuel charge than present-day spark ignition systems typically supply. A mor ...

  9. Combustion of liquid fuels in the air core of rotating water for application in a downhole steam generator

    SBC: HYDROFLAME TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 18a

    HydroFlame Technologies, LLC (HFT) is proposing to study the feasibility of combusting liquid fuels in the air core of rotating water for application in a downhole steam generator (DHSG). Deep reserves ( & gt;2500 ft) can be accessed by application of DHSGs. DHSGs increase the efficiency of steam generation and injection by eliminating heat losses via pipeline, wellbore and vent gases. The op ...

  10. In-line LBIC

    SBC: Janoch Engineering LLC            Topic: 07b

    Problem statement: For low cost manufacturing of high efficiency solar cells and solar modules, manufacturers are ever looking for effective tools to measure the problematic defects and performance variations in their critical processes. Approach to addressing the problem: The light, or laser, beam induced current (LBIC) technique has been used in the laboratory to produce detailed images of the o ...
