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. Integration of Advanced Inductive Signature Vehicle Detectors with an Advanced Transportation Controller running under the Real Time Linux Operating System

    SBC: Inductive Signature Technologies Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to determine what outputs from the SSAJ measurement system would be suitable for traffic control applications, to determine what the "real time" needs and accuracies are for measurements of signature, speed, acceleration, and jerk (SSAJ), to integrate the output of our IST-222 Standard Signature Output Card with and Advanced Transportation Contorller (ATC) and finally to demonstrate pro ...

  2. Poly(Lactic Acid)/Starch Blend for a Degradable Agricultural Mulch Film

    SBC: AgRenew, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Agricultural mulch films are used for the production of vegetables and fruits. Thin plastic films (typically polyethylene) are spread along the rows of plants at the beginning of the growing season. Holes are made in the films to plant the seeds or seedlings. The use of mulch films speeds the ripening of crops, conserves moisture and fertilizer, and inhibits weed growth, fungus infection and insec ...

  3. Interactive CD Guide for Food-Borne Fungal Indentification

    SBC: BCN Research Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although good textbooks on food mycology are available, a clear need exists for simpler and more visual identification systems. Because of ease of manufacture and use, interactive potential and ability to display color pictures, the CD is the ideal medium for such a system. However nothing of this sort is available. The proposed project aims to produce an interactive CD for the identification of f ...

  4. Detection of Termites Using Distributed Wireless Monitoring

    SBC: Hatchpoint, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Structural damage from termite infestation causes over $2 Billion in damage yearly within the U.S. In addition, current treatment methods are labor intensive and provide little feedback as to effectiveness. This effort will develop a prototype system for remote monitoring and detection of termites.

  5. Poplar Root System Characterization Studies for Next Generation Root Research


    Root systems are critical to many important tree traits. Characterizing tree roots is difficult because they are hidden underground. This project will use digital x-rays to visualize and characterize tree root systems in order to develop enhanced root systems (and the resulting improved tree traits) in the future.

  6. A Marketing Model for Small Family Farms Selling Niche Products to Supermarkets

    SBC: RAINBOW ORGANIC FARMS CO            Topic: N/A

    There is currently limited access to supermarkets for small family farms to sell their locally grown and raised farm fresh foods. The learning curve for small-scale family farms to meet the requirements of retail supermarket chains is long and demanding. However, there is an increasing number of small family farms seeking to fill this growing consumer demand for foods from local and regional small ...

  7. The eServe Initiative: An Empirically Supported, Web-based Educational Decision Making Product

    SBC: Software Outfitters Inc            Topic: N/A

    Software Outfitters, Inc., in collaboration with the University of Kansas, proposes to evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of a web-based data analysis and educational intervention selection product, called the eServe Initiative, which would be designed to support teachers, building administrators, and district administrators in making critical decisions about the selection of specific, effectiv ...

  8. On-Line Monitoring of Accuracy and Reliability of Instrumentation and Health of Nuclear Power Plants

    SBC: Analysis And Measurement Services Corporation            Topic: 27

    The nuclear power industry continues to depend largely on antiquated methods and hands-on maintenance for its instrumentation, for plant-aging management, and health monitoring. This project will develop on-line monitoring technology that will help establish the accuracy and reliability of nuclear power plant instrumentation and also will help in the management of aging critical plant equipment. ...

  9. Standard Data Exchanges for Distribution System Management

    SBC: Enernex Corporation            Topic: 05

    The databases and software tools developed for the electrical distribution system do not interoperate. As a result, electric utilities incur a number of problems: increased costs for training and database maintenance; delays in completing engineering studies and other functions; and, often, a decreased quality of output from software systems. For software providers, this situation leads to mark ...

  10. Distribution System State Estimation

    SBC: Enernex Corporation            Topic: 05

    Many good load-estimation algorithms for the electricity distribution system have arisen from research activities, but they often are difficult for utilities to implement. This project will develop a customizable load estimation system, using OSIsoft's Historian with extensions to the IEEE Power Quality Data Interchange Format (PQDIF) standard, to collect and manage the data. In Phase I, the OSI ...
