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. Development of culture methods for marine ornamental fish larvae

    SBC: SEA & REEF AQUACULTURE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The marine aquarium industry is growing rapidly due to the increasing popularity of keeping marine aquariums. Each year approximately 25 million fish are harvested from coral reefs around the world to supply the marine aquarium hobby. The U.S. market accounts for approximately 60% of these wild collected fish. The collection of reef organisms threatens the coral reefs due to frequent overharvestin ...

  4. High Temperature, High Stress GPS Antenna Window

    SBC: Fiber Materials, Inc.            Topic: N08215

    The development of guided munitions offers interesting challenges in system, component, and materials design. Indeed, system requirements drive component requirements which, in turn, drive material requirements. A prime example of this linkage may be seen in the component of focus for this proposed effort; a GPS antenna. The primary functionality of these components, EM transparency for trackin ...

  5. Developing Elderberries as a Specialty Crop for Herbal Supplements, Nutraceuticals and Functional Foods

    SBC: ELDERTIDE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Although the American elderberry species has not been cultivated, bred, or promoted as a medicinal plant like its European counterpart, university based variety trials indicate that the attributes of American elderberries complement, equal, or exceed the European cultivars currently in the market, suggesting a need for increased American elderberry production and product development. Purpose: To e ...

  7. SBIR Phase I: Development of non-toxic antifouling compounds targeting a key G-protein coupled receptor involved in settlement and metamorphosis of barnacles

    SBC: MariCal, Inc.            Topic: BC

    This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project develops a novel, non-toxic, antifouling technology for the aquaculture industry. Unlike existing biocidal metal-based coatings, our technology is based on a class of compounds that inhibit the settlement, attachment, and/or metamorphosis of invertebrates on marine surfaces by modulating the activity of a specific nutrient-salinity sen ...
