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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Development of a Catalytically Active Solvent for Desulfurization of Transportation Fuel

    SBC: Extractica, Llc            Topic: N/A

    72102S03-I In order to comply with current EPA regulations for reducing the level of sulfur in gasoline and diesel fuel, domestic refineries will need to install new process units for desulfurization of the fuel streams. However, current commercially available desulfurization technologies have significant energy requirements due to the severe operating conditions (such as high temperatures and p ...

  7. An Optical Fiber Probe for the Measurement of High Temperatures

    SBC: HOPE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    72255S03-I In the materials processing industry, melting raw materials and forming them into products involve high-temperature operations in which large amounts of energy are consumed. Sensors that work in these high-temperature industrial processing environments (which also have harsh chemicals, physical restrictions, and electromagnetic interference) will contribute significantly to minimizing ...

  8. Hydroforming of Lightweight Aluminum and Magnesium Components from Tube-Development and Commercialization of a Novel Elevated Temperature Hydroforming System

    SBC: K. Wetzel & Company            Topic: N/A

    70075T02-II Significant fuel cost savings can be realized in the automotive and aerospace industries by employing lightweight materials in the design and fabrication of vehicular components. To date, the exploitation of lightweight magnesium and aluminum alloys in component fabrication has been restricted due to their limited formability at room temperatures in conventional metal stamping proc ...

  10. Enhancing Elderly Balance & Gait Using Mechanical Noise

    SBC: AFFERENT CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): EIderly falls constitute one of the most costly health problems in the U.S., both in terms of expense to the healthcare system and in individual suffering. Fully one-third of people over age 65 fall each year, many incurring significant injuries that strongly impact their long-term health prospects and productivity. Although many factors contribute to the prop ...
