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. Body Orientation Sensor System (BOSS)

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: 07NH1

    The objective of this work is to develop a low cost 6 DOF body tracking system to monitor the orientations of an occupants and pedestrians as well as vehicle kinematics in vehicular impact tests. This tracker system can be standalone or part of a subsystem that can communicate with other trackers and external computer via serial, USB and/or Bluetooth interface. The proposed tracker coined Body O ...

  3. Design, Development and Testing of Optimized Composite "Soft Crack Arrestors"

    SBC: ENGINEERING MECHANICS CORPORATION OF COLUMBUS            Topic: 07PH1

    Emc2's proposal provided to DOT in response to SBIR Research topic 07-PH1 on "Design Optimization for Soft Crack Arrestors" focuses on the development of key material property data needed to design "soft crack arrestors". This testing will be done over a range of temperatures to cover extreme conditions for future pipeline designs. It is also essential to develop this data at the loading rates t ...

  4. Dynamic Non-contact 3D Measurement System for Rollover Testing

    SBC: Photon-x, Inc.            Topic: 07NH2

    Photon-X is proposing to develop an innovative dynamic 3D roof imaging system to monitor vehicle roof deformation during vehicle rollover testing. The 3D imaging system will capture real-time dynamic motion of the roof and vehicle occupants for playback analysis or modeling to enhance overall safety in rollover crashes. The system will provide photographic resolution 3D imagery with the ability ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Development of an Integrated Anaerobic Digestion System for Methane Production from Lignocellulosic Biomass

    SBC: QUASAR ENERGY GROUP, LLC            Topic: 88

    The proposed project builds on prior research that has shown the potential for energy recovery from lignocellulosic biomass through an integrated anaerobic digestion (iADs) process. A 2005 USDA report places the current production of corn stover at 75 million dry tons per year and stated that this represents a major untapped source of agricultural biomass. The innovative anaerobic digestion proces ...

  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. Improved microbial formulations, strains and systems to increase crop yield and control disease.

    SBC: ADVANCED BIOLOGICAL MARKETING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Today, the American farmer and consumer is looking for nontoxic products to control pests. Biological control and related technologies have the potential to provide these nontoxic solutions for the control of plant pests and to increase plant growth and yield. Among the direct effects of biocontrol agents are: (a) disease control through induced resistance, (b) increased growth of roots and shoots ...

  9. Sustainable Production of Pinfish (Lagodon rhomboides) for the Live Bait Market

    SBC: AQUATIC INNOVATIONS            Topic: N/A

    Recreational saltwater fishing is a major industry in coastal areas of the United States. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service estimated that saltwater anglers spent $8.4 billion in 2001 on fishing trips and supplies. In many communities this type of "wildlife tourism" is the lifeblood of the community. It is vital to these communities to have a consistent supply of needed goods for these anglers. T ...
