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 Native Kelp Culture System Technologies to Support Sea Vegetable Aquaculture in New England Coastal Waters

    SBC: Ocean Approved, LLC            Topic: 817

    This Phase I research effort is to design and develop “seed” nursery methodologies for development of commercial-scale production of young kelp plants, specifically Saccharina latissima (Phase I), Alaria esculenta and Laminaria digitata (Phase II). The project objectives include: (1) Establishing unialgal cultures from wild-collected material, (2) Determining the key culture condi ...

  3. Construction and Tidal Current Testing of Field Scale Model of Breus Rotor

    SBC: Breus, Sergei            Topic: 815

    Maine Blue Stream Power proposes to construct a field scale (2m diameter) prototype of a hydrokinetic energy conversion device, the Breus Rotor (patent pending), and perform in-stream tidal testing. The problem that Main Blue Stream Power addresses in this proposal is the extraction of energy from a wide range of marine current speeds with low impact on the marine environment. In prelimi ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Developing elderberries as a specialty crop by supporting a growers` network and by conducting prototype development of nutraceu

    SBC: ELDERTIDE LLC            Topic: 812

    US federally funded research and international research is connecting elderberry (S. nigra and S. canadensis) to the treatment of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, AIDS, herpes simples virus HSV-1 and influenza types A and B. Many of these studies have focused on the presence of high levels of antioxidants present in the berries of these perennial shrubs. Today, consumers understand the important r ...

  6. NE shellfish farming candidate: Factors regulating survial & growth of Arcitc surfclam & Mactromeris polynyma in experimental field studies

    SBC: Pemaquid Oyster Company, Inc.            Topic: 87

    The Arctic surfclam, Mactromeris polynyma, is a relatively large bivalve (75 - 125 mm) that is similar in appearance to the more common Atlantic surfclam, or hen clam, Spisula solidissima. Its major distinguishing feature, and one that makes it particularly appealing as a culture candidate for consumption in both domestic and Asian markets, is a purple foot and mantle that turns red when cooked, s ...

  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. Hard clam farming in eastern Maine: field experiments to evaluate biological & economic efficacy of field-based nursery and grow-out phases

    SBC: LEACH, JESSE            Topic: 87

    We have discovered the easternmost commercial population of hard clams, Mercenaria mercenaria (L.), in the U.S., in the waters of Eastern Maine. In 2007, we received permission from the State of Maine to lease a 6-acre tract in the shallow subtidal of Goose Cove (Trenton) to farm cultured hard clams. This is the first-ever lease of this type in eastern Maine. Working with our research partners fro ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ( ...
