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. Q-Trap: In-transit detection of bioinvasive insects in intermodal shipping containers.

    SBC: APTIV            Topic: N/A

    This sensitive insect sensor will run 24 hours per day, every day that cargo is in transit, attracting insects to a containment surface where they remain for immediate detection and identification when inspectors gain entry to the container. Flying insects will be waiting, ready to be counted on arrival, rather than hidden within the cargo. An increase in the availability, timeliness, accuracy and ...

  2. Hybrid System for Ultrasound Signal, Spectral, and Image Analyses to Enhance Meat Quality Evaluation in Food Animals

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Determining meat quality attributes in food animals is essential for genetic selection, sorting, and marketing. Ultrasound techniques have the potential to benefit the swine industry for improvements in both quality and yield measures by non-destructive means. There is a need to continually improve percentage intramuscular fat estimation accuracy and reduced bias, especially before integration of ...

  3. Enhancing Pork Quality and Value Using Live Animal Ultrasound Technology for Better Breeding and Marketing Decisions

    SBC: BIOTRONICS, INC            Topic: N/A

    Consumers and an ever growing segment of the pork industry know that more optimal levels of marbling must be put back into the high-value pork cuts. Biotronics, Inc. is developing technology to solve this problem by using real-time ultrasound to measure the percent of intramuscular (% IMF) fat in live pigs and hot carcasses. The premise of the project is that swine breeders can be rewarded financi ...

  4. Developing a Pyrolysis Platform Biorefinery (1) High Quality Bio-Oil

    SBC: Frontline Bioenergy, LLC            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal, lead by Frontline BioEnergy, teams with the Iowa State University (ISU), Center for Sustainable Energy Technologies (CSET) to develop high quality, time-stable and storable fast pyrolysis oils in phase-I that are useful for production of fungible liquid fuels such as diesel, gasoline and jet fuel. Our approach uses novel filtration techniques to reduce total alkali contamination in ...

  5. Improvement of The Yield and Quality of Poplar Biomass for the United States Bio Fuels Industry

    SBC: GREENWOOD RESOURCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Hybrid poplar plantations will play a large role in the supply of cellulosic feedstock, in meeting the Nation's 30x30 goals for the renewable transportation fuels industry. The success of the poplar plantation industry will be contingent on elite plant material that has undergone hybridization for improved agronomic characteristics. Hybridization between the cottonwoods and the poplars has been th ...

  6. Ambient Processing and Nutritional Assessment of Trypsin-Inhibitor-Null Soybean Products

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: N/A

    Commercial soybeans require heat processing to deactivate anti-nutrition factors/enzymes. Schillinger Seed has developed a new soybean free of the key anti-nutrition Kunitz Tyrpsin Inhibitor (SKTI-Null). This new SKTI-Null) soybean presents the opportunity for ambient or cold processing of soybeans for use in food and feed. The elimination of heat processing eliminates the need of a signifcant amo ...

  7. Autogenous replicon particle (ARP) vaccines for porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrom virus (PRRSV)

    SBC: HARRISVACCINES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is a clear and immediate need for improved PRRSV vaccines. PRRS is estimated to cost pork producers in the U.S. nearly $600 million annually and with a national eradication effort being proposed, the need for a second generation vaccine tool that is effective and safe is crucial. The use of a vector such as replicon particles (RP) merges subunit and modified live technologies to safely induc ...

  8. Effects of Aqueous Extracts from Vermicomposts (teas) on Crop Growth and in Suppressing Plant Diseases, Nematodes and Arthropod Pests

    SBC: Oregon Soil Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This Phase II SBIR project aims at confirming the potential of aqueous extracts (teas) from vermicomposts, in promoting plant growth and suppressing plant diseases, nematodes and pest arthropods. In Phase I research we demonstrated that: (i) microorganisms and plant growth regulators can pass into teas, (ii) aerated vermicompost teas performed better than non-aerated ones, (iii) soil drenches and ...

  9. Rural Iowa Dialysis Patient Record Management and Transfer Method

    SBC: Tripletail Ventures, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Tripletail Ventures, Inc. aims to facilitate the creation, adoption, organization, update, transmission, portability, and sharing of rural patient health records, specifically for a Medicare certified dialysis unit. Many rural dialysis units in Iowa do not have access to their patients complete records, spend considerable time and expense tracking vital information from other providers, and do not ...

  10. Context Aware Self Management Tools for Individuals with Significant Congnitive Disabilities

    SBC: Assistech Systems LLC            Topic: N/A

    This project has two goals: (1) to develop and evaluate the feasibility of intelligent, computer-based self-management and household management applications that would improve the independent living capacity of persons with cognitive disabilities, and (2) to identify an agenda for full development of a deployable system in a Phase 2 project. Intelligent multimedia computer agents offer an untapped ...
