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. SBIR Phase I: Knowledge-Based Adaptive Software Development Methodologies

    SBC: Adaptive Process Technologies            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project builds on a research program investigating the design of process-based software development tools and methodologies. The project will develop a next generation of this software that supports the creation, refinement, and adaptation of software development methodologies in a principled manner while preserving the need for rapid innovation. Th ...

  2. Sunlight Independent Crop Canopy Reflectance Sensor

    SBC: Holland Scientific, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Over application of nitrogen fertilizer on agricultural and commecial landscapes has resulted in contamination of ground and surface waters. This project proposes to develop a new sensor technolgy that will help reduce the amount of N applied to crops and turf by determining the amount of N needed by the plant via the plants reflectance characteristics.

  4. Single-Molecule Image Analysis for DNA Sequencing

    SBC: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We have been developing a system for real-time single molecule DNA sequencing. System components include novel "charge-switched" nucleotides, an adapted DNA polymerase, a method for isolating and handling single DNA molecules, a microfluidics flowcell for sorting molecules by charge, a TIR (total internal reflection) optical system for single-molecule detection ...

  5. Nano- and Micro-Encapsulation of Food Additives and Agrochemicals (SBIR Phase I)

    SBC: LNKCHEMSOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: General methods to produce uniform capsules with well-defined and controllable shell thickness and diameter, especially at the nano- and micro-scale, are in great demand for controlled and timed release of drugs, agrochemicals, nutraceuticals, and probiotics. The proposed technique should in principle allow encapsulation of all such types of valuable agents, e.g., agrochemic ...

  6. Novel Nanofiber-reinforced All-ceramic Dental Materials

    SBC: LNKCHEMSOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION: Novel continuous, non-woven oxide nanofibers will be used to design, produce and test a new class of allceramic materials for restorative Dental applications. The working hypothesis is that these new nanofiber/glass systems will be of significantly higher mechanical quality than state-of-the-art technologies used in the field. Two materials scientists (Drs. Dzenis and Larsen, co-PI an ...

  7. Promoter Rescue Vectors

    SBC: NATURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Mouse VL30 (retrotransposon) long terminal repeats (LTRs) are a potential source of tissue-specific transcriptional promoters that can be used to deliver and express therapeutic genes in humans. Such vectors are badly needed, because the current retroviral vectors appear to be effective only in hematopoietic cells in vivo. In phase I, a retro-vector system will ...

  8. New Low Cost Resins Systems

    SBC: SHADE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    There is great anticipation and an urgent need to develop a low viscosity, affordable, non-styrene based, flame resistant resin system similar to the vinyl ester Derekane 510A and curable at room temperature. This resin system, compliments of DowChemical, is a Brominated bisphenol and has work quite well relative to confined place. There is a need to find an alternate material that will produce n ...

  9. OTOREFLECTANCE ASSESSMENT OF MIDDLE-EAR FUNCTIONING

    SBC: Sonicom, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Otoreflectance (OR) is a new class of hearing test instruments utilizing acoustic signals presented and recorded in the ear canal. OR instruments address limitations in existing screening and diagnostic instruments in such areas as: (1) detecting otitis media, (2) predicting conductive hearing loss, (3) augmenting the newborn hearing screening protocol to test ...

  10. A New Application for Finely Ground Rubber in the Control and Abatement of Odors Emitted from Livestock Manure Storage Structures

    SBC: Tire Recycling Centers USA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Most livestock manure storage structures are open-air earthen and formed structures or under-slat structures for liquid manure storage. This manure storage system allows for seasonal manure application on harvested or small growing crops, but has the disadvantage of exposing odors or gaseous emissions to production workers, neighbors, and the environment. Previous research h ...
