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. Coral Tissue Engineering for Mass-Production of Coral for the Recreational Marine Aquarium Trade

    SBC: Haereticus Environmental Laboratory            Topic: 812

    Over 10 million coral specimens a year are traded in the +$100 million/year ornamental-recreational aquaria industry.  Over ninety percent of commercial coral specimens come from some form of mass harvesting of wild corals from coral reefs.  This can have a detrimental impact to coral reefs.  We have invented a method of perpetual propagation of corals through tissue engineering.&nb ...

  2. Non-contact Track Gage Measurement System (NC-TGMS)

    SBC: DFUZION, INC.            Topic: 081FR4

    One of the causes of derailments occurs when the track gage is no longer compliant with the FRA track safety standards for gage measurments.  Ensuring track gage is in compliance with the FRA track safety standards is therefore of paramount importance to the FRA.  Currently, the FRA wishes to develop a non-contact track gage measurement system that overcomes the limitations of current sy ...

  3. Portable Active Thermographic Coating Inspection System

    SBC: Fuchs Consulting Inc            Topic: 091FH2

    This proposal seeks to produce a unique thermographic coating inspection system that is customized for the inspection of bridge coatings.  This system uses active thermography where IR sources are used to provide controlled heating to a coating system.  The presence of a defect in a coating system will result in differences in heat flow, which can be imaged with an infrared camera.  ...

  4. Roadway Waste Heat Electricity Production Using Impoved Roadway Paving Technologies

    SBC: Planphoria LLC            Topic: 091FH5

    Planphoria will research, define and develp methods to turn our nation's roadways into a giant energy collection and transference system that produces low cost electrical energy close to point of use.  Though roadway environmental conditions change, and different roadway requirements vastly differ from the requirements of other roadways, we will determine the feasibility of this concept by le ...

  5. Improving the efficiency of feed use in the cattle industry

    SBC: 3 C CATTLE FEEDERS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    3-C Cattle Feeder, in collaboration with the New Product Development Center [NPDC] at OSU will develop enhanced prototypes to be tested in the field. The doors to the feeder will be controlled by an RFID reader which actuates a motor allowing the feeder doors to open. For safety, the doors are fail-safed using an infrared safety switch to prevent the doors from closing on a cow or calf, while thei ...

  6. Cobia Production Using Novel Low Salinity RAS Technology

    SBC: VIRGINIA COBIA FARMS            Topic: N/A

    This application describes the Phase I commercialization by Virginia Cobia Farms (VCF) of a combination of unique technologies including proprietary technology involving molecular salinity nutrient sensors in fish, use of intensive land based recirculation systems (RAS), novel dietary fish feed formulations as well as commercial production scale application of ARS scientists focused on development ...

  7. Multiple Foodborne Pathogen Resequencing Microarray-based Diagnostic Assay

    SBC: TESSARAE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Most contemporary diagnostic tests are designed to detect and identify a single particular pathogen if it may be present in a given specimen. Furthermore such assays typically rely upon a short biomarker, or short signature gene sequence element to INDIRECTLY determine if the specimen is or is not present in the specimen. Such assays are inevitably vulnerable to false negative or false positive re ...

  8. Development of co-immobilized enzyme pellets to replace GMOs for cellulosic ethanol

    SBC: SuGanit Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Economic bioethanol production is critically dependent upon the ability to convert both the hexose (C6) and pentose (C5) sugars resulting from cellulose and hemicellulose components of biomass. C5 sugars are not readily fermentable by native organisms. Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are designed to ferment xylose, but their stability, ethanol yield, environmental impact, and survival under ...

  9. Improved Animal Traceability via Active EID

    SBC: STRATEGIC SOLUTION INTERNATIONAL LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR research addresses two important and related needs regarding management of the national herd during an animal disease outbreak. First, is the need to facilitate keeping the national animal tracking databases (ATDs) as complete, accurate, and up-to-date as possible. The second is the need to immediately stop the transport of potentially-infectious animals during an animal disease ...

  10. Production of a Value-Added Crop for Greater Human Nutrition

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A. Situation or Problem The U.S. population has a deficit of dietary Ca, with 55% of men and 78% of women in the United States not meeting the US recommended daily allowance (RDA) for Ca of 1000 mg/d, putting them at risk for developing osteoporosis. One in two women and one in eight men over the age of 50 will have an osteoporosis-related fracture, resulting in more than $10 billion in health car ...
