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. Measuring Depth Profiles of Scattering in the Ocean

    SBC: SOFTRONICS, LTD.            Topic: 822

    LIDAR (laser radar) is used for oceanographic research, and emits a short light pulse whose return echoes are digitized and analyzed to determine the composition and location of underwater objects. This requires a digitizer with high sampling speed, wide bandwidth commensurate with the pulse width, and high dynamic range. What is needed in reality is a 14 bit, 1 Gsample/second (Gs/s) analog-to-d ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. Large-Scale Production and Field Testing of Pelleted Fungal Inocula for Use in Fungal-Based Remediation of Contaminated Soil

    SBC: EarthFax Development Corp.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Fungal inocula are a critical and economically-significant component of a technology that exploits the abilities of white-rot wood-decay fungi to degrade pollutants in soil. This technology involves mixing of a fungal inoculum with contaminated soil and placing this mixture in an aerated pile. Current standard inoculum production techniques are expensive, involving the field ...

  6. Development of a Sequencing Batch Biofilm Reactor for Treatment of Pesticide Rinsewater

    SBC: Aronora, Inc            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Pesticide formulation and agricultural-chemical facilities generate a dilute troublesome pesticide rinsewater that is difficult to dispose of due to its low volume, highly variable flow and the presence of a mixture of pesticides, solvents and emulsifiers. The sequencing batch biofilm reactor (SBBR) is expected to be a low-cost treatment technology for pesticide rinsewater. ...

  7. Designing a Natural Soy Processing System that Delivers Nutritious Texturized Soy Protein

    SBC: SCHILLINGER SEED INC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Since the Food and Drug Administration announced in 1999 that foods containing soy protein may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, commercial food companies have been looking for soy foods to meet customer demand for more healthful, convenient food. Development of appealing meat alternative products has been limited by existing equipment used to produce texturized soy ...

  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 ...
