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. Advances in Ammonia Detection Systems

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 811

    This Phase II SBIR Research project will continue the development and testing of an innovative instrument for measuring fluxes of atmospheric ammonia to be delivered at the end of Phase II. The instrument will combine advances in diode laser technology with sophisticated laser modulation methods to quantify ammonia in a low pressure flow cell. The instrument¿s small size and light weight will ...

  2. Miniature Chemical Ionization Mass Spectrometer for Measuring Tropospheric Ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes to develop an automated, fast, and compact instrument to measure tropospheric ammonia from light aircraft. Ammonia plays important roles in aerosol particle chemistry, and particle characteristics are critical in understanding climate change and air quality. Existing ammonia instruments are either too large or measure too slowly for use on light aircraft. The unique ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Materials Characterization & Manufacturing Development of an Irrigation Ditch Liner System

    SBC: FastDitch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The productive use of surface water for agriculture has become a critical national and international priority as competition for water resources increasingly outpaces supply. This is demonstrated by the World Bank's investment of $3 billion a year in water projects. Small earth-lined irrigation ditches are used to deliver water from larger canals or streams directly to field ...

  7. Solar Powered Bilateral Virtual Fencing Using Global Positioning System Technology & Animal Behavior for Controlling Free-Ranging Animals

    SBC: Future Segue            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Managing free-ranging animal distribution in real-time remains a worldwide challenge. Most conventional approaches to improve animal distribution cannot be implemented in real-time because the tool to bring about the change is fixed in time and or space while forage and animal resources are temporally and spatially dynamic. Until recently Bilateral Virtual Fencing (BVF) was ...

  9. 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 ...
