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. Detect the Lesser Grain Borer in Stored Grain Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase I


    The long term goal of this project is to eliminate insect pests from the US food and feed supply with a sensor device, minimize exposure of humans and animals to residual chemicals or insecticides, and reduce financial losses due to grain damage. The lesser grain borer (LGB) is a devastating, long-lived pest of stored wheat, corn and other cereal grains in the US and other parts of the world. Adul ...

  2. Enhanced Thermal Activity of Vegetable Oil Based Thermal Energy Storage Materials

    SBC: Renewable Alternatives, LLC            Topic: 88

    Phase change materials (PCMs) are a class of materials that use phase changes (e.g., melting) to absorb or release relatively large amounts of latent heat at relatively constant temperature. Applications include such things as clothing, building air conditioning, and medical-related shipping containers. However, the one area that still plagues the widespread use of PCMs is that they have a low the ...

  3. Monitor and Control the Formosan Subterranean Termite in Forest Resources Using an Application of a New Science and Technology Phase I


    The Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus, FST), an exotic, cryptic pest, causes about $1 billion damage in the US annually (Lax and Osbrink). Unlike native species, this aggressive termite attacks living trees, potentially threatening southern forests and the urban/forest interface. Potential forest damage is twofold: direct damage or death to trees and indirect disruption or disp ...

  4. Novel method for improving algae harvesting

    SBC: Phycal LLC            Topic: 87

    Algae are one of the most, if not the most, productive biomass crops known and have a photosynthetic efficiency almost twice that of the most productive terrestrial crop, sugarcane. However, algae are not without disadvantages relative to terrestrial crops, and do require their own novel technical solutions. Characteristically, microalgae are aquatic, very small (1 to 10 micron diameter), very dil ...

  5. Novel Dewatering Method for Cost Effective Harvesting of Microalgae Biomass

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: 87

    A novel process is proposed which will allow continuous dewatering of algae growth culture in a device which is robust (no moving parts) and readily scalable through process parallelization. The process makes use of innovative passive (low energy input) flow control and does not need any chemical pre-treatment or external heat energy input. Microalgal cultivation affords the promise of renewable p ...

  6. Development of effective non-antibiotic dry-off agents for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    This project addresses priority areas of 1) Animal Productivity (in both conventional and alternative production systems), 2) Animal Health and Well-Being, and 3) Food Safety and Environmental Mitigation, as described in the NIFA Program Announcement for Phase I SBIR applications. 1) Productivity: Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, dis ...

  7. A Pelleted sericea lespedeza supplement for control of internal parasites on small farms

    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. I ...

  8. Nano Particle-Decorated Graphene-Enabled High-Efficiency Bifunctional Catalysts for Lithium-Air Batteries

    SBC: Angstron Materials, LLC            Topic: 10c

    The primary objective of this Phase-I research is to demonstrate the technical feasibility and commercial viability of a new generation of high-efficiency bi-functional electro-catalysts for use in the Li-air cathode. The catalyst is based on nano-scaled noble metal and/or transition metal oxide particles uniformly dispersed on the surfaces of nano graphene sheets. The specific goals of Phase-I ta ...

  9. Chirped Electron Bunch Energy Compensation for an X-Ray Light Source

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 13f

    Beam exiting the linac in a soft Xray FEL has an undesirable chirp (head-tail energy spread). We have designed a planar dielectric structure that can remove the chirp by making use of the bunch & apos;s own wakefield. The device is entirely passive, requiring no other external rf power. Using Euclid & apos;s BBU-3000 code, beam dynamics in the device will be studied. A prototype structure ...

  10. Nb3Sn Wound Superconducting Undulators for Synchrotron Light Sources

    SBC: HYPER TECH RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 14c

    In Phase I, we propose to model, design and wind, using state-of-the-art tube-type Nb3Sn wire, a short demonstration undulator in the form of a planar coil set, and to measure its electromagnetic properties in a variable temperature cryostat paying particular attention to temperatures above 4.2 K. Winding schemes will be evaluated best suited to Nb3Sn wire, but a single piece length is favored. Pa ...
