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. The Development of a Breeding Station for a Predator of Coffee Berry Borer

    SBC: ALPHA SCENTS, INC.            Topic: 813

    The goal of this proposal is to increase the population of the Square-necked Grain Beetle (SNGB), Cathartus quadricollis, in coffee plantations by developing breeding stations that use pheromones and food source odors to increase the population of this predator of Coffee Berry Borer, Hypothenemus hampei, (CBB). SNGB is a major predator of the CBB which causes significant damage to coffee in all co ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Continued Development Of A Novel Next Generation Airborne Wind Energy System For Small And Mid Size Farms

    SBC: EWINDSOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 812

    As Oregon farmer and Organically Grown Company (OGC) executive director Andy Westlund confesses, being one of the 800,000 small commercial farmers in America is challenging (Hoppe, MacDonald, & Korb 2010). Small farms are highly exposed to market risks, tend to focus on commodities, and have profit margins of just 3-4% (Hoppe, MacDonald, & Korb 2010). As such, small price changes of a sing ...

  7. An Open Source, Standards-based, Extensible, Smart Energy Management Platform

    SBC: RANKIN, LINDA            Topic: 08

    The Smart Grid is essential to meeting our future energy needs by changing how we use, distribute, and generate electricity. This energy future includes an increased amount of energy from renewable resources, load management techniques to improve resiliency and reliability, and distributed energy resources that can be managed to meet energy provider and individual customer’s needs. Two primary S ...

  8. Large-Format, High-Throughput Photon-Counting Imager

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 07

    Low-cost, power-efficient, time-resolved imaging is increasingly important for DOE remote sensing operations. While large-area CMOS and CCD visible imagers and high-resolution thermal imagers now provide excellent images, these technologies do not have the temporal resolution to detect and track transient events, such as lasers, muzzle flashes, or other energetic events. Needed are imagers that ha ...

  9. 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. ...

  10. Alternative Interconnect Manufacturing

    SBC: Vadient LLC            Topic: 07b

    Nationally, lighting now consumes over 20% of all electricity generated, and energy demand continues to grow. But solid‐state lighting (SSL)—due to its efficiency, reasonable cost of ownership, controllability, and lifetime—has the potential to become the dominant lighting technology, accounting for the majority of the lighting market within the next 20 years. This requires very rapid growth ...
