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. Use of the halophyte Sarcocornia utahensis as a phytoremediation strategy for the amelioration of saline-sodic impacted soils...

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: N/A

    The environmental impacts of coal bed methane development (CBM) in Montana and the Rocky Mountain States are well documented. CBM exploration is expanding rapidly with the nation's focus on energy independence and the relative ease of extraction. Extraction of CBM necessitates pumping large volumes of often saline discharge waters to the surface. The impacts of those waters include: reductions in ...

    SBC: BEE ALERT TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Beekeeping is a billion dollar industry, of which honey production plays only a small part. Most beekeepers make their money with crop pollination, charging up to $120 per hive for this service. Crop growers want healthy, strong colonies. It takes a skilled beekeeper about 10 minutes to inspect a colony; the Colony Health Scanner performs the same function in about 2 minutes, and can be operated b ...

  3. Demonstrate the Safety and Efficacy of a PRRS-RP Vaccine Candidate

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome Virus (PRRSV) costs the swine industry approximately $560M annually through reproductive loss in mature females and respiratory disease in growing pigs. There is a need for new vaccines for PRRSV to battle the strain evolution and heterogeneity of this RNA virus. Currently the only available US commercial product is a Modified Live Virus (MLV) from BI- ...

  4. Cost-Effective Wind Turbine for Electricity Self Sufficiency on Small and Mid-Size Farms

    SBC: WIND INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    There is potential for a major expansion of windpower production on small and mid-size farms in the United States. Most of the nation?s wind resources are located on farm and ranch land. However, US sales of small (less than 100kW) wind turbines are still relatively limited, amounting to fewer than 7,000 units in 2006. The major reason is the unacceptably high system cost and long payback period o ...

  5. Low Cost Optrodes for Chemical Sensor Development of Tethered PET-Fluorophores

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 16a

    Besides temperature, pH measurement is one of the most common controls used in the processing of aqueous media within various industries. One example is in chemical processing where titration is often used to drive the pH to a certain level, in order to initiate, maintain, optimize, or terminate reactions. Another instance involves the monitoring of cell growth bioreactors, where microbial and e ...

  6. An Advanced Vibrothermography Approach for Wind Turbine Applications

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: 20b

    The reliability of wind turbine systems is greatly impacted by hidden defects. Therefore, an improved method of inspection is sought for the manufactured composite materials used in these systems. In addition, an inspection method is also needed in the field, to assure quality during and after installation. This project will develop a reliable, portable, instrumentation system that can be utili ...

  7. Hyperspectral Sensor for Large-Area Monitoring of Carbon-Dioxide Reservoirs and Pipelines

    SBC: Resonon, Inc.            Topic: 04b

    Geologic carbon sequestration has been identified as a potential means of reducing the amount of carbon­dioxide emitted into our atmosphere, thereby reducing one of the major contributors to global warming and climate change. A major difficulty with carbon­dioxide sequestration is monitoring sequestration sites and pipelines for leakage, which may come from zones on the order of 1 meter in s ...

  8. Development of a digital photorefractor to detect amblyogenic risk factors

    SBC: VIVAKOR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): If left undetected and untreated, reduced vision in one eye can lead to monocular blindness in an amblyopic eye. Most vision screening is conducted on children once they have started kindergarten; this is after the critical detection period for the treatment of amblyopia. Early detection is essential for favorable prognosis. Unfortunately less than 21% of pre-k ...

  9. Development of Methods and Software for Interior Tomography Applications

    SBC: INTERIORSOFT, LLC            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): In contrast to the conventional wisdom that the interior problem does not have a unique solution, in 2007 we developed and patented the interior tomography technology (exact and stable interior reconstruction from x-ray projection data associated with only lines through an internal region of interest). When applying conventional CT algorithms to such an incompl ...

  10. Hypoxia-Perfusion Bioreactor for Stem Cell Applications

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop and demonstrate a prototype Hypoxia Perfusion Bioreactor (HPB). In order to utilize recent discoveries that low oxygen levels are favorable to stem cell expansion, Resodyn Corporation has developed the HPB, which is designed to provide controlled delivery of both oxygen and fresh medium to ste ...
