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 Closed-Path Methane and Water Vapor Gas Analyzer

    SBC: Li-cor Biosciences            Topic: 16 b

    A closed-path, methane and water vapor gas analyzer is required to support the widespread deployment that is needed to achieve a better understanding of the global methane budget and to quantify exchanges between the atmosphere and terrestrial biosphere. The analyzer must be robust, portable, consistent with solar powered applications, and suitable for long-term and remote field measurements. In a ...

  2. A Closed-Path Methane and Water Vapor Gas Analyzer

    SBC: Li-cor Biosciences            Topic: n/a

    A closed-path methane and water vapor gas analyzer ¿ which is robust, portable, has low power consumption consistent with solar powered applications, uses room-temperature lasers, and is suitable for long-term and remote field measurements ¿ is not commercially available. Yet, such an analyzer is required to support the widespread deployment needed to achieve a better understanding of the globa ...

  3. A FIBER OPTIC SENSOR TO MEASURE ORTHOGONAL SOIL PRESSURES IN FREEZING AND THAWING SOILS

    SBC: Management Information Resourc            Topic: n/a

    THE FREEZING/THAWING ENVIRONMENTS OF FROZEN SOILS CONTRIBUTE TO THE POOR DATA PERFORMANCE TO PRESENT FIELD TRANSDUCERS THAT MEASURE LOAD PRESSURES IN SOILS. IMPROVING SOIL PRESSURE DATA OUTPUT FROM DIURNAL, FROZEN SOILS, THAT INCLUDES ORTHOGONAL PRESSURE DATA, WILL PROVIDE BETTER ENGINEERING INFORMATION FOR COLD REGION STRUCTURES. NEW DEVELOPMENTS IN OPTICAL FIBER "SMART" SENSING TECHNIQUES PROVID ...

  4. A FIBEROPTIC PROBE TO SIMULTANEOUSLY DETERMINE SOIL WATER CONTENT AND SOIL TEMPERATURE

    SBC: Management Information Resourc            Topic: n/a

    PRESENT SOIL FIELD INSTRUMENTS DETERMINE ONLY ONE SOIL PHYSICAL PARAMETER AT ONE TIME AND AT ONE POINT. THE COMBINATION OF FIBEROPTIC TECHNIQUES WITH INFRARED AND VISIBLE OPTICAL SENSORS PROVIDES A MEANS FOR PROBING, VIEWING AND SENSING SIMULTANEOUSLY IN SITU SOIL PHYSICAL CHANGES. A FIBEROPTIC DEVICE WILL BE DEVELOPED TO INVESTIGATE IN SITU SIMULTANEOUS CHANGES OF SOIL WATER CONTENT AND SOIL TEMP ...

  6. A Laser-based Instrument Platform for Measuring Methane and Other Trace Gases

    SBC: Li-Cor Biosciences            Topic: 08

    78618S Robust and reliable trace-gas analyzers (e.g., for isotopic carbon, methane, nitroxide, ammonia, etc.), suitable for long-term measurements, are not commercially available. Such analyzers are needed to achieve a better understanding of the global budget of these trace gases and to quantify their exchanges between the atmosphere and the terrestrial biosphere. This project will develop a tu ...

  7. A Laser-based Instrument Platform for Measuring Methane and Other Trace Gases

    SBC: Li-Cor Biosciences            Topic: 08

    Robust and reliable trace-gas analyzers (e.g., for isotopic carbon, methane, nitroxide, ammonia, etc.), suitable for long-term measurements, are not commercially available. Such analyzers are needed to achieve a better understanding of the global budget of these trace gases and to quantify their exchanges between the atmosphere and the terrestrial biosphere. This project will develop a tunable d ...

  8. A MULTIPLE INTERFACE MEDIA INTERCONNECT CONTROLLER FOR THE FASTBUS ENVIRONMENT

    SBC: Quartec            Topic: n/a

    THOUGH MUCH HAS BEEN DONE TO IMPROVE THE DATA GATHERING AND MASTER EVENT PROCESSING MODULES FOR THE COLLIDER INSTALLATION EXPERIMENTS WITHIN DOE, VERY LITTLE HAS BEEN DONE TO ADDRESS THE CRITICAL COMMUNICATIONS REQUIREMENTS NEEDED TO IMPROVE INTERCONNECTION AND INTEROPERABILITY WITHIN THE FASTBUS COMMUNITY. PHASE I WILL INVESTIGATE DEVELOPMENT OF A MULTIPLE INTERFACE MEDIA INTERCONNECT CONTROLLER ...

  9. A multispectral imaging system for real-time prediction of beef tenderness and USDA grades

    SBC: GOLDFINCH SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: 8.5

    Beef tenderness is the most important trait influencing consumer satisfaction. Currently there is no method for real-time classification of beef by tenderness. Current beef marketing is based on USDA quality grades (Prime, Choice, and Select). Therefore, the beef industry needs an integrated system that can simultaneously predict beef tenderness and also USDA grades. In the Phase I study, we succe ...

  10. A New Application for Finely Ground Rubber in the Control and Abatement of Odors Emitted from Livestock Manure Storage Structures

    SBC: Tire Recycling Centers USA, Inc.            Topic: n/a

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Most livestock manure storage structures are open-air earthen and formed structures or under-slat structures for liquid manure storage. This manure storage system allows for seasonal manure application on harvested or small growing crops, but has the disadvantage of exposing odors or gaseous emissions to production workers, neighbors, and the environment. Previous research h ...
