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. Porous Membrane Electrode for Quantitative Detection of Toxins

    SBC: Mercury Science Inc.            Topic: 816N

    There is a need for a simple, portable, quantitative method to monitor the presence of Harmful Algal Blooms. Electrochemical detection offers some advantages for analysis, but traditional sensors are not practical for routine field use. Adapting colorimetric immunoassays on porous, flow-through electrodes can provide a means for rapid, low-cost, portable quantitative environmental analysis. Thi ...

  2. Improved Transit Rider Experience

    SBC: MERCURY DATA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 121FT1

    We propose to develop an advanced navigation solution for public transportation passengers that will guide them from their origin to single or multiple destination points and across multiple modes of transportation. Passengers will simply need to enter their destination (and optionally a starting point) and the system will select optimal and alternative routes. The navigation software will run on ...

  7. Robust and Sustainable Utilization of Biofuel Co-Products to increase Biorefinery Diversification

    SBC: Piedmont Biofuels Industrial            Topic: 88

    Reducing foreign dependence on petroleum-based materials is a key to enhancing the US agricultural economy in the long-term. In recent years with the rising costs of petrochemical prices, there has been an increasing interest in renewable sourced specialty chemicals. Presently, less than 4 percent of U.S. chemicals sales are biobased in origin. A recent USDA analysis puts the potential biobased ch ...

  8. Enriching Rural American Farmers and Their Communities By Enabling Broadcasters To Power Transmitters With Wind Energy

    SBC: ROBERT MILLER CONSULTING LLC            Topic: 86

    Regions in the US with wind levels suitable for producing substantial renewable energy are located in the predominantly agricultural center of the country where population density and therefore demand for electrical power are low. Transport of power from wind farms in this section of the country to the coastal regions where population and the need for power are high is limited by the capacity of t ...
