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. Sensor Package for Bottom Water Environmental Measurements

    SBC: Advanced Design Consulting USA, Inc.            Topic: 834

    Monitors that are currently used to periodically record bottom water temperatures cannot be read by the lobstermen who use them. In addition, current monitors make no provision for recording changes in depth if they are redeployed in a different location. The specific aim of this proposal is to develop a sensor that will measure water temperature and pressure hourly and will be readable by a rad ...

  2. Biomolecular Farming System for Industrial, Pharmaceutical and Other Non-food Plant Products

    SBC: CEA Systems            Topic: N/A

    Although laboratory-scale advances in molecular and genetic engineering bring the promise of one day utilizing plants to produce human therapeutic proteins (such as insulin) there is a concomitant requirement for technological advances in plant biomass production that will convey the future products of plant molecular engineering to the marketplace in a safe, secure, reliable and economically feas ...

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


    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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Large-Scale Production and Marketing of Vermicomposted Dairy Manure

    SBC: RT SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Excess manure is a cause of reduced water quality in agricultural watersheds. In order to offset the cost of transporting the manure out of these watersheds, it must be converted into a higher value product This project is designed to examine the cost of large-scale earthworm composting systems to convert dairy manure into more user-friendly, and value-added products

  6. A New Process for Biodiesel Production Based on Waste Cooking Oils and Heterogeneous Catalysts


    In the United States, the vast majority of biodiesel consumed is made from soybean oil by an energy and labor-intensive alkali-catalyzed process known as transesterification. The cost of biodiesel production is much higher than for petroleum-based diesel, and it is therefore not currently cost-competitive. The feedstock costs of soybean and processing costs associated with homogeneous alkaline cat ...

  7. 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 ...
