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. Producing Shrimp In A Modified Partitioned Aquaculture System Using On-Shore Tanks And Earthen Ponds

    SBC: Greene Prairie Aquafarm, L.L.C.            Topic: 87

    The U.S. is the largest importer of shrimp in the world, and in order to compete with foreign imports, production efficiencies need to be drastically improved. A principle problem that affects profitability, and ultimately, sustainability of inland shrimp farming in Alabama and other regions is highly unpredictable survival. Survival can be affected by stock-out success of post larval shrimp or by ...

  2. Enhanced Radiation Attenuation Medical Gloves

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: 88

    High margin, low volume, specialty rubber product markets are critical to early stage commercialization of guayule natural rubber, a domestic rubber source. Current guayule production is too small to achieve economies of scale and cannot compete in the low cost, high volume, commodity markets. This project exploits the unique mechanical properties of guayule latex to develop the first radiation at ...

  3. Virus-like-particle (VLP) vaccine for chicken infectious anemia.

    SBC: LARAD Inc.            Topic: 83

    The human population relies on food animals as a major source of high quality protein. Maintaining the health of these animals is of critical importance to good human nutrition worldwide. Chicken anemia virus (CAV) is an important immunosuppressive pathogen of poultry. We are proposing to improve vaccines and diagnostics for this pathogen to improve animal health. Chicken infectious anemia (CIA) i ...

  4. A New Nano-Based Detector for the Indian Meal Moth, Both Adult Insects and Larva


    The problem of losses due to insect and microbiological pests does not end in the field or with the harvest. The problem persists into the storage phase where the value of raw commodities is reduced by direct damage. Thus sensing and eliminating insect pests must be accomplished to ensure not only the retention of maximum value of the crop but also to permit the safe movement of agricultural commo ...

  5. A SRF Photogun for MeV Ultrafast Electron Microscopy

    SBC: Euclid Beamlabs, LLC            Topic: 11b

    In order to achieve sharp, high resolution real-time imaging, electrons in a MeV UEM (ultrafast electron microscope) beamline need to minimize instabilities energy spread during generation and acceleration- The stability of the normal conducting photocathode gun which is currently used to produce short electron bunches has been one of main elements limiting the further improvement of beam instabil ...

  6. Phase Correction Plates for X-Rays

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 09b

    X-ray focusing optics regardless of the technology requires extremely high precision of manufacturing, metrology and operational stability- As the x-ray beam is being transported to the experimental area distortions due to misalignments, imperfection of optics, etc- add up and result in beam quality degradation: broadening, appearance of tails and aberrations- Recently it became possible, using pt ...

  7. Inexpensive Electron Beam Optics for Ultrafast Electron Microscopy

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: 11a

    Unlike traditional Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM) Ultrafast Electron Diffraction (UED) and Microscopy (UEM) operate at higher electron energies to preserve the high quality electron beam required for unprecedented temporal and spatial resolution- This however forces stringent requirements on electron- optical components- In particular a set of high field (2 Tesla) solenoids acting as cond ...

  8. GPU-enhanced HPC Design and Optimization Platform for NanoOptical Components

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: 03a

    There is a fundamental need for a high-performance computing (HPC) approach to computational electromagnetics (CEM) modeling tools suitable for designing and optimizing the next generation photonics devices- The dramatic grown of telecommunications bandwidth requirements is fueling demand for advanced manufacturing methods of next-generation devices capable of incorporating new phenomena such as p ...

  9. Functionally Gradient Seals for Solid Oxide Fuel Cells

    SBC: NexTech Materials, Ltd. dba Nexceris, LLC            Topic: 19d

    Seal technology remains one of the most vexing issues in SOFC development- SOFC systems have been shown to provide major improvements in base-load energy generation efficiency from a range of hydrocarbon fuels in distributed and centralized power generation, achieving system efficiencies of more than seventy percent- However, to achieve this potential, these systems must be made robust to harsh op ...

  10. Real-time Monitoring and Speciation of Selenium in Pulverized Coal Power Plant Wastewaters

    SBC: Ohio Lumex Co., Inc.            Topic: 20c

    Ohio Lumex Co- will develop a novel approach to real-time monitoring and speciation of selenium in coal-fired power plant wastewaters- The proposed technology will be developed in response to EPA’s recently issued Effluent Limitations Guidelines pertaining to selenium content in effluent streams from steam power generation plants- The proposed technology will be designed for real-time monitoring ...
