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. Transportation Autonomous Device

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR4

      Railroad yards are in constant movement with potentially thousands of train cars moving over miles of track compressed into a limited area.  The harsh environment presents many safety hazards for railroad workers who must move through this environment and perform assigned tasks.  Job related injuries cost he railroads over $1 billion annually and from 2008 30.3% of those injuries ...

  3. Crossing Hazard Intelligent Alert System (CHIAS)

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ELECTRONIC MACHINES CORPORATION            Topic: 101FR2

      Railroad grade crossings remain one of the primary locations for fatal or near-fatal accidents involving rail vehicles.  Multiple attempts to prevent such accidents by means such as signals and gates are severely hampered both by expense of installation and by the fact that many accidents are caused by vehicle drivers or pedestrians deliberately or through inattention ignoring or evadi ...

  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. Optimizing an inexpensive trap and lure for monitoring and management of green june beetle

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 812

    Green June beetle (GJB), Cotinis nitida, is an important pest of grapes, peaches, apples and all brambles. The beetles feed on the ripe fruit and inoculate it with fungi which cause fruit decay. As much as 80% of the fruit can be destroyed. Mass GJB outbreaks occur when the fruit is ready for harvest, thus the growers cannot use insecticide sprays (Pre-harvest and re-entry intervals extend beyond ...

  6. Simplified synthetic pathway of citrus leafminer pheromone

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The citrus leafminer (CLM), Phyllocnistis citrella, Stainton (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae), is an exotic pest of citrus originally found in Florida in 1993 followed by Texas in 1994. Feeding damage by CLM predisposes trees to citrus canker. Loss of citrus crop caused by canker is estimated at 10% of a total $1.3 billion on-tree value for all citrus in the U.S. Until recently, only pesticidal spray ...

  7. Attract and Kill Technology to Control Citrus Leafminer in Citrus Nurseries and Orchards

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The citrus leafminer (CLM) is an important pest of citrus originally found in Florida in 1993 and in Texas in 1994; currently, CLM has spread through most citrus growing regions of the US. Larval-stage feeding results in serious damage to leaves and predisposes trees to citrus canker. Female CLM release their pheromone to attract males for mating. Alpha Scents Phase I research has proved the techn ...

  9. A Novel Catalytic Reactor for Biodiesel Production

    SBC: UNITED ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 88

    700 million gallons of biodiesel were produced by 144 biodiesel plants in the U.S. in 2008, representing only a tiny fraction of the roughly 40 billion gallons of petroleum diesel used for on-road transportation. Batch process biodiesel production plants are commonly used for biodiesel production. However, the upper average overall volumetric throughput of a batch reactor is relatively low; conseq ...

  10. One-step Biodiesel Production from Yellow Grease

    SBC: UNITED ENVIRONMENT & ENERGY, LLC            Topic: 88

    To make biodiesel production profitable, the biodiesel producers are forced to turn to lower cost, waste-based yellow grease. However, the problem with yellow grease is that it contains high concentrations of free fatty acids that pose significant processing problems in the alkali-catalyzed processes. The current two-step commercial processes used to convert yellow grease to biodiesel incur added ...
