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. Creating Resilient Structures with Polymer Coatings

    SBC: Optechnology, Inc.            Topic: 819S

      The first goal of our team is to design and develop highly ductile cement mortar composites using novel patent applied for technology which has been shown to produce materials with high energy absorption, decreased modulus, higher tensile strength, and greater toughness than standard or ultra high performance concretes or fibercements. These materials will be used to produce NEMA Class ...

  2. Development of an integrated actuator for real time control of spray nozzle flow rate and droplet size spectrum

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: 813

    Application of agrochemicals is essential to U.S. production of food, fiber, biofuels and ornamentals. However, it can also create environmental contamination if pesticides reach non-target areas through airborne displacement of spray, i.e., "spray drift". Drift is a concern for agriculture, especially for specialty crops grown in sensitive areas. Spray drift mitigation, through use of larger drop ...

  3. Next Generation Energy Efficient Supplemental Lighting for Plant Production

    SBC: CYCLOPTICS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 813

    Greenhouse farming is an absolute necessity to revive and create local agriculture industries in northern climatically challenged regions with short growing seasons. Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) has made significant strides in greenhouse farming technology. State of the art CEA farming utilizes direct control of lighting, temperature and CO2 in a hydroponics environment. Key advantages ...

  4. In-Field Soil Phosphorus Measurement System

    SBC: VERIS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 84

    Crop growers in the United States, and in developed countries worldwide, apply large amounts of phosphate fertilizers to their fields. In the US for example, growers annually apply over 4,000,000 tons of phosphate fertilizer. Fertilizer rates are typically applied in excess of the crop need, since the cost of fertilizer is low relative to the loss in crop yield if a given nutrient is yield-limitin ...

  5. Automated, in-field measurement system for soil nitrate and other properties

    SBC: VERIS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 84

    Nitrogen affects proteins, enzymes and metabolic processes and is essential for crop growth. While annual usage varies based on world economic conditions, approximately 80,000,000 metric tons of fertilizer N are applied annually in the world, of which more than 10,000,000 tons are applied annually in the United States. If crops don?t have an adequate supply of nitrogen, significant yield losses ca ...

  6. Improving the stability and concentration of Megasphaera elsdenii NCIMB 41125

    SBC: MEGASTARTER, LLC            Topic: 83

    Acidosis in ruminant animals (beef cattle, dairy cows, and sheep)is a metabolic condition that causes problems for animals fed high-grain diets. Orally dosing animals with a strain of bacteria, Megasphaera elsdenii, has been shown to be beneficial in alleviating or decreasing this metabolic problem. This bacteria is very sensitive to environments containing oxygen and to date has a fairly short sh ...

  7. Pelleted sericea lespedeza diet for control of internal parasites and pathogens in goats and sheep

    SBC: SIMS BROTHERS INCORPORATED            Topic: 83

    Internal parasites are the greatest health and production challenge for sheep and goats in southeastern states and others during warm, humid conditions (including Northeastern, Midwestern and irrigated pastures in Western US). Haemonchus contortus or barber pole worm thrives in warm, humid climates and is a voracious blood feeder that can cause anemia and death to the animal if left untreated. Dew ...

  8. High-Efficiency Microalgae Biofuel Harvest and Extraction Using Ionic Liquids

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: 18b

    Producing renewable fuels from algae does not use agricultural lands and could make the US energy-independent while drastically reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, biomass processing steps are currently too energy-intensive and cost-prohibitive.We are exploring new chemistry to obtain an energy- and cost-efficient way to dry algae biomass and extract energetic substrates for conversion int ...

  9. Quantum Mechanic Based Reactive Potentials for Rapid and Reliable Prediction Of Material Properties for Advanced fossil Energy Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 23c

    This Phase I SBIR project will develop Quantum Mechanics (QM)-based reactive interatomic potentials for computer-aided development of novel materials for advanced fossil energy systems such as slagging gasifier and ultrasupercritical steam plant. Currently, the development of novel materials remains slow because it is driven by trial-and-error experimental approach. Atomistic Molecular Dynamic ( ...

  10. A New Quarter-Wave Coaxial Coupler For1.3 GHZ Superconducting Cavity

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 37b

    The current design for the rf couplers for the ILC cavity introduces unacceptable emittance growth in the beam. We have developed two new couplers designed to mitigate the emittance growth problem by preserving the axial symmetry of the cavity fields. Optimization of the design of the coaxial coupler units. Complete analysis of the ILC structure with the new coupler units was performed to confi ...
