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. Development of Grow-out Techniques for Juvenile Green Sea Urchins

    SBC: R.J. Peacock Canning Company            Topic: 841

    This SBIR Phase 2 project looks to develop and further refine the culture conditions to optimize the growth of juvenile green sea urchins (Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis), a commercial species not previously cultured as juveniles. We will develop an alternative technology for the New England fishery which now depends only on the harvest of wild urchins. Sea urchin roe is a delicacy in Japan t ...

  2. Converting Sawmill Waste Stream Material into Higher Value Solid Wood Products Using a "Total Solution Recovery and Value-Adding Strategy"

    SBC: Auburn Machinery, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The Sawmill industry is facing a number of serious problems that are undermining its stability as a key industry in many rural areas of the United States. The top ten problems facing the industry are: (1) A declining access to timberlands in some areas, (2) Higher saw log costs, (3) Lower saw log quality, (4) Greater residue disposal problems, (5) Fluctuating lumber pricing, ...

  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. 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 ...

  7. Use of Lactic Acid Bacteria to Inhibit the Growth of Clostridium Botulinum in a Novel Mussel Pack

    SBC: Great Eastern Mussel Farms, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Mussels are packed live in a non-permeable, drip-free package with a proprietary mixture of gases in order to improve freshness, improve processing yields and increase retail sales. Prior to regulatory approval, a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) analysis of the package has identified the potential formation of botulism in packages exposed to temperature ab ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Preparation of an IHN Virus Whole Killed Vaccine: Retention of Neutralizing Epitope Integrity of the IHN Virus Glycoprotein During Viral...

    SBC: Maine BioTek, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: IHN disease in farmed salmon and trout exerts a negative impact on the productivity and profitability of the aquaculture industry. The purpose of this project is to produce an efficacious, safe and cost-effective killed IHN virus vaccine. The vaccine would decrease or eliminate IHN disease in farmed salmon and trout, thereby increasing the productivity and profitability of t ...
