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. A Prototype Fish Metrology System for Open Ocean Aquaculture

    SBC: Onomea Scientific, LLC            Topic: 845

    Open-ocean aquaculture businesses are proving commercially successful. There are several refinements this technology must undergo in order to maximize productivity. One of the specific areas of refinement is in gathering detailed statistical knowledge of the captive fish stock population as a function of time. This knowledge will allow optimization of feed rates. Optimized feed rates will mini ...

  2. Cost Effective and Reliable Anaerobic Digestion for Agricultural By-products

    SBC: HANSEN ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The current problem with on farm anaerobic digesters is the high failure rate. Some failures are do to plugging because of the viscous and heterogeneous nature of agricultural animal waste. Other digesters have been abandoned because the management of the digester was too difficult or required to much time. The purpose of this project is to develop a novel method along with the machinery capable f ...

  3. Dietary L-Thyroxine to Induce Molt Without Feed Withdrawal in Laying Chicken, Broiler Breeder, and Turkey Breeder Hens to Extend Production

    SBC: Hooge Consulting Service            Topic: N/A

    Molting (reproductive rejuvenation) of poultry to extend table or fertile egg production is a well accepted commercial practice in the U.S. However, the conventional method of ~10-day feed withdrawal to induce molt is increasingly viewed as unacceptable by McDonald's, Wendy's, AVMA, and the egg consuming public. The use of dietary L-thyroxine (T4; the natural molting hormone) for poultry can provi ...

  4. Enabling Transplastomic Dunaliella as Green Biofactories

    SBC: Kuehnle AgroSystems Corporation            Topic: 88

    Improved genetics in green algae has the potential to significantly increase the production of high-value dietary supplements, oils, and vaccines and thus help address industrial, nutritional and biomedical needs in civilian and military applications. This project examines chloroplast genetics of an industrial alga, Dunaliella.

  6. High Value Products from Molokai Seaweed: A New Enterprise for Coastal Hawaiians

    SBC: Lohea Audio            Topic: N/A

    The project is to expand a small business in Molokai, a rural community in Hawaii, to develop products based on one of the island's most under utilized resources, seaweeds. Seaweeds are marketed as fresh sea-vegetables in local markets. However, these markets are limited; and this proposal includes the development and marketing of new, seaweed-based products The focus is on the production products ...

  7. Aquaculture of Reef Fish

    SBC: Pacific Planktonics            Topic: N/A

    This project investigates the feasibility of producing high value ornamental reef fish that have not been raised before, and reducing the cost to farm these fish. The market for ornamental reef fish is very large, but that market is supplied primarily by wild fish captured from tropical reefs. Hatchery technology is only marginally successful for most reef fishes. Success in this project will incr ...

  8. Project PREPARE: Preparing preschoolers and kindergartners who are deaf to learn to read by teaching them early critical service words typically visually and linguistically inaccessible to them through a computer-based instruction product

    SBC: HOPE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Children with significant hearing loss continually exhibit low reading levels, due in part to the difficulty they face upon entering school of understanding basal reading vocabulary, especially critical service words. Service words cannot easily be learned through the use of pictures or objects but constitute up to 75% of all words used in basal readers, including prepositions, conjunctions, artic ...

  9. Development of a Fourier-Transform Infrared Gas Analyzer to Measure Carbon Isotopes of CO2.

    SBC: Campbell Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    79737B Only half of the estimated carbon delivered to the atmosphere by human activities in the 1990s remains there. The "missing" carbon was absorbed by terrestrial ecosystems and oceans, thus mitigating human perturbations to the carbon cycle. Carbon isotopes play a central role in understanding this terrestrial carbon sink at a variety of scales, but instrumentation to directly measure carbon ...

  10. Electrolytic Process to Produce Sodium Hypochlorite Using NaSICON Ceramic Membranes

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: 19d

    79513S Sodium hypochlorite is an industrial chemical that is produced with technologies that rely on organic membranes and undivided cell methods, which have performance limitations from fouling and limited selecivity. This project will develop an innovative and energy efficient, low temperature, cost-effective, and environmental friendly electrochemical process that uses a sodium-ion-conducting ...
