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. An Ultralight Autonomous Robot for Weed Control

    SBC: PARALLEL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The effective control of weeds is one of the most important and costly issues in commercial agriculture. Practically all weed control is accomplished by mechanical means (cultivation) or broadcast spraying of herbicides. Global positioning systems, remote sensing and variable-rate technology have been used for site-specific herbicide application. The anticipated results will ...

  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. Establishing A Viable Organic Goldenseal Production System for Small Family Farms Phase II

    SBC: SLEEPY HOLLOW FARM            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Many small, limited resource farms are only marginally profitable and their owners are seeking ways of increasing farm income and financial stability through diversification. It has been suggested that innovative businesses need to be designed to optimize the mix of labor, capital, and natural resources to the size and scale of the farm. Opportunities that exist for smaller- ...

  7. Goldenseal, Processing and Value-Added Product Development

    SBC: SLEEPY HOLLOW FARM            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Many small, limited resource farms are only marginally profitable and their owners are seeking ways of increasing farm income and financial stability through diversification. The Wallace Center at Winrock International has suggested that innovative businesses need to be designed to optimize the mix of labor, capital, and natural resources to the size and scale of the farm. O ...

  8. UV LEDs for Solid State Lighting

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    72979S03-I This project will develop technology to enable the commercial production of high-quality (In,Al,Ga)N epitaxial materials and high-performance UV LEDs for solid state lighting applications on AlN substrates. This will be accomplished by developing a production-quality bulk AlN wafer, developing high quality, p- and n-type doped AlGaN and InAlGaN-based multi-quantum wells, and introduci ...

  9. Transport of Methane Pellets for Advanced Cold Moderators

    SBC: Cryogenic Applications F, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    73071S03-I Existing and planned neutron facilities, such as the Spallation Neutron Source, generate pulses of cold neutrons for materials research. The efficiency of the beam line components, which convert the fast neutrons to a cold neutron beam, determines the usefulness of the facility. Existing solid methane moderators have a high efficiency, but they can¿t be scaled to work on planned hig ...

  10. 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 ...
