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. Self-Sustaining, Intelligent Pavement Systems

    SBC: Solar Roadways            Topic: 091FH5

    As stated in the solicitation, the pavement infrastructure in the US covers a large surface area and requires intensive energy and natural resources. Vehicles that travel over these pavements are also resource intensive. Solar Roadways Incorporated envisions replacing current asphalt surfaces with modular Solar Road Panels: structurally-engineered solar panels that can be driven upon. The roadwa ...

  2. Development of a serotype-independent vaccine based on Salmonella T3SA proteins

    SBC: INTEGRATED ANIMAL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: 83

    Salmonella is a bacteriathat causessevere stomach and gut distressinpeople andis the leading cause of food-borne illnesses resulting in hospitalization and death in the US. The resulting economic losses caused bythisbacteriain the livestock industry are staggering with much of the loss attributed to recalls, permanent disruption of the gut lining impairing nutrient absorption, and necessary cullin ...

  3. Development of grower applicable Alfalfa Leafcutting Bee incubation protocols to extend interruption duration for improved pollination management that improves seed yield and bee health

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 812

    The purpose of this proposal is to improve the protocols of incubation interruption of Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALBs) used in the managed pollination of alfalfa seed crop. An efficient alfalfa pollination management program coordinates bee release with bloom onset while minimizing residual pesticide hazard. Our customer feedback suggests that this approach may increase yield up to 100% for grower ...

  4. Alfalfa bloom prediction using plant images and processing techniques for the purpose of improving pollination using alfalfa leafcutting bees

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 813

    The purpose of this proposal is to conduct research that will provide alfalfa seed growers a bloom forecast application to improve their pollination practices and increase yield. Most U.S. growers outside of California use Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALB) for pollination because they increase yield by more than 50% over honey bees. Growers spend ~$400/acre for ALB's, yet our customer diligence i ...

  5. Low Trellis Production and Harvesting System for Hops

    SBC: Trellis Growing Systems            Topic: 812

    There is a large demand for high quality, locally-grown hops by craft brewers throughout the U.S. Farmers are increasingly looking at establishing small-scale (1/4 to 5 acres) commercial hop yards to supply this demand. Typically, commercial hop farmers use a high trellis system for large-scale production on 60 acres or more. Their hop yard start-up cost (excluding harvesting and processing equipm ...

  6. High-Efficiency Turbine Generator for Instream Electric Power Production

    SBC: Magnetic Power Motion            Topic: 15

    Concerns over global warming due to carbon emissions have spurred an interest in such renewable energy alternatives as hydroelectric, wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass. Of all of these, hydroelectric power offers perhaps the greatest potential for supplying a significant portion of our nation's energy needs. To realize this potential, however, this technology needs to expand beyond traditional ...

  7. MEMBRANES AND MATERIALS FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY Subtopic: High Performance Conductors "Reinforced Commercial Metals for Enhanced Electrical and Thermal Conductivity"

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMIC FIBERS, LLC            Topic: 12b

    Major improvements in the electrical and thermal conductivity of metals used in conductors are needed to improve the energy efficiency and reliability of our national electrical power systems. These metals need to be stronger and more resistant to corrosion, oxidation and fatigue which reduce the reliability and lifespan of conductors and create high costs for maintenance, repair and replacement. ...

  8. COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS FOR THE DESIGN OF LIQUID METAL THERMOMAGNETIC SYSTEMS

    SBC: Maidana, Carlos            Topic: 32k

    Liquid metal cooled fission reactors are both moderated and cooled by a liquid metal solution. These reactors are typically very compact and they can be used in regular electric power production, for naval and space propulsion systems or in fission surface power systems for planetary exploration. Liquid metals in fusion reactors can be used in heat exchange, tritium breeder systems and in first wa ...

  10. A method for accurate and sensitive detection of HIV drug-resistant minority variants

    SBC: Medosome Biotec, LLC            Topic: NIAID

    DESCRIPTION provided by applicant Drug resistance to HIV is a major threat to achieving long term viral suppression in HIV individuals Up to of newly infected individuals acquire HIV with resistance to at least one of the major antiretroviral classes and incomplete viral suppression and virologic failure are often associated with drug resistance Therefore current DHHS guideline recomme ...
