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. An Automated Tool for Deriving FARSITE Canopy Fuel Parameters from Airborne LiDAR Data

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The USDA is the managing agency for 192.5 million acres, much of which is national forest. A major threat to national forests is uncontrolled wildland fires. These fires are a serious threat to goods and services provided by national forests, including natural resources (timber), forage for livestock and wildlife, outdoor recreation, and a vector to sequester carbon. Healthy forests provide habita ...

  2. Buhl Ethanol Project: Co-producing Ethanol and Barley Protein Using Local Resources


    The phase II project combines fuel ethanol production with manufacturing of a protein concentrate to create a new industry in a rural south Idaho community. In phase 1 research, MMP demonstrated technical feasibility of a process to produce ethanol and protein concentrate as co products from barley. The use of barley addresses irrigation constraints in south Idaho by creating increased value for a ...

  3. Novel Use of Plant Tissue Culture for Site-adapted, Acid Soil, Heavy Metal Tolerant, Native Plants Useful for Mine Land Reclamation

    SBC: SMK PLANTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    SMK Plants LLC will use plant tissue culture to quickly produce large numbers of acid-soil heavy-metal tolerant (AHMT) locally-adapted native plants suitable for revegetating land contaminated by hard rock mining wastes. Large numbers of AHMT plants are in demand because of the immense area of degraded mine land needing to be reclaimed. It will take billions of dollars to reclaim these lands. We p ...

  4. A Lower-cost System for Wind Power Generation on Individual Farms and Ranches

    SBC: WIND INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is potential for a vast expansion of wind-power production in rural America. However, US sales of small wind turbines are still relatively limited, amounting to fewer than 7,000 units in 2006. The major reason for these limited sales is the high system cost and long payback period of current wind turbines. Other reasons include public objections to the visual appearance and noise of conventi ...

  5. Multiplex Fluorescent Dyes for Ultrasensitive Proteomics

    SBC: ZDYE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The broad long-term goals of this project are to develop more powerful proteomics detection technology with greatly improved sensitivity, that will reveal the global patterns of biologically stimulated changes (differen tial detection) in protein levels, posttranslational modifications and enzyme activities simultaneously (using 6-12 channel multicolor fluoresc ...

  6. Waveguide Phase Modulator for Integrated Planar Lightwave Circuits in KTP

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    This SBIR Phase II effort proposes the development and integration of a Planar Lightwave Circuit (PLC) into an all fiber-based seed laser system used in high spectral resolution aerosol and cloud lidar applications. The PLC integrates a frequency doubling element, a waveguide splitter, and phase modulator into a monolithic, waveguide-based device. This technology is important for lidar systems r ...

  7. Highly Efficient, Compact, Wavelength Converters for Pulsed and CW Laser Sources Used in Lidar-Based Remote Sensing and Ranging Systems

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S602

    AdvR, Inc. proposes the development of a highly efficient, fiber pigtailed, waveguide-based UV frequency converter module. This UV module will be an important element in future NASA sponsored Doppler lidar and High Spectral Resolution Lidar (HSRL) aerosol missions. The key innovation is the use of dual-element periodically poled waveguides embedded in a nonlinear optical substrate. This innovat ...

  8. Miniature Carbon Dioxide Sensor for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: S603

    Phase 1 has seen the development of a revolutionary new type of sensor for making carbon dioxide (CO2) measurements from small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and other platforms such as sounding balloons. The chemistry behind the new sensor has been proven, example sensors were fabricated, and the technique has shown its immunity to many interferences (notably humidity and temperature) which aff ...

  9. SBIR Phase II: (IT-B5) Feasibility to run novel voice interface on a low-power microcontroller

    SBC: CameronSound, LLC            Topic: IT

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II research project will implement a miniature information management system that is suitable to the access requirements for visually impaired users. Current information technologies for the visually impaired are slow and difficult to operate while holding a white cane or guide dog. Visually impaired people will benefit greatly from a hands-free ...

  10. SBIR Phase II: FireScape: A Platform for On-Demand, Browser-Based Incident Command

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: EO

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II aims to prove the feasibility of creating a web-based mapping and visualization application for end-users in wildland fire management communities as an extension to the results of the Phase I work. By partnering with strategic vendors, the project will expand our current application to offer not only advanced remote-sensing data products and ...
