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. Lifetime Prediction Model for Pavement Repair

    SBC: Simcredible            Topic: N/A

    A software product is proposed to enhance lifetime prediction and design of structural pavements by including the effects of fatigue cracking. The fatigue lifetime prediction (FLIP) code will calculate incremental crack growth that occurs in pavements for cycles of stress below the yield stress. FLIP combines crack growth calculations with an extrapolation procedure to predict the growth of fat ...

  2. Distributed Human Augmentation of Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: AGENTAI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: This novel model envisions an economy where economic growth can be accelerated without the harmful continual depopulation of America's rural areas in favor of ever more overpopulated urban centers. This will be accomplished by innovative technology, which will access two largely untapped resources, namely the underemployed, but well-educated, rural workforce and the power of ...

  3. A Volatile Antibiotic Producing Fungus for Control of Soil-Borne and Postharvest Diseases

    SBC: AgraQuest, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Agriculture is in need of safer products to replace methyl bromide and other synthetic fungicides. Soil-borne diseases caused by pathogens such as Pythium, Rhizoctonia, Verticillium and Phytophthora are a major problem in horticulture, field crop production and greenhouses causing root rots, wilts and loss of vigor and yield. Methyl bromide, a potent ozone-depleting agent be ...

  4. Flow Control and Operation Monitoring System for Individual Spray Nozzles

    SBC: Capstan Ag Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Agricultural spray equipment operators typically cannot monitor all nozzles along the boom. Clogged or malfunctioning nozzles produce undesirable spraying results. This project is designed to lead directly to a useful product, namely, a single-nozzle monitoring unit for agricultural spray applications. The monitoring capabilities of the system will allow more efficient, reli ...

  6. Use of Site-Specific Recombination for Hybrid Rice Production

    SBC: HybriGene, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Based on previous work we anticipate that this project will provide a proof of principle for hybrid rice production as an attractive alternative to the use of CMS in rice. We expect that this technology will become standard to the rice industry and integrated into worldwide breeding programs. We also anticipate that this technology will be used in a wide array of other cerea ...

  7. A Soil Sampling System for On-the-Go Analysis and Mapping of pH and Other Properties

    SBC: Kejr, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: As crop growers begin to use GPS technology to manage the variability in their fields, they are seeking ways to assess the variability of physical and chemical properties more accurately and cost-effectively. In the most common approach, soil samples are acquired on a 2.5 acre grid pattern. Soil properties often have greater spatial variability than is identified with this a ...

  9. Development of All-Female Populations of Striped Bass

    SBC: KENT SEATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Striped bass culture has become the fourth largest form of fish production in the U.S., trailing only catfish, trout, and salmon in terms of market value. Unfortunately, this promising new industry faces considerable market pressure from foreign competitors who often enjoy lower labor, water, and utility costs and fewer environmental regulations than encountered in the U.S. ...
