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. Extractive Fermentation for Production of Lactic Acid from Corn Starch by Filamentous Fungi Immobilized in Fibrous Bed Bioreactor

    SBC: Environmental Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The ability now exists to take simple starches and convert them into biodegradable plastic products for future generations. Using continuous immobilized fungal fermentation simple starches are converted to a 95% pure stream of L(+)-lactic acid. Commercialization of this biodegradable plastic precursor is being enabled by this project. Increasing the yield, volumetric product ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Developing a Natural Nontoxic Replacement for Organophosphate Insecticides in California Nut Crops

    SBC: Phelan Natural Chemicals Co.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: New government regulations, such as FQPA, public concerns about food safety, and environmental contamination, are driving the devolution of traditional synthetic pesticides. While this might be of benefit in the long-term, in the short-term, U.S. farmers and growers who have come to depend on these tools for productivity may be caught in the middle. There is an immediate nee ...

  8. Hydroforming of Lightweight Aluminum and Magnesium Components from Tube-Development and Commercialization of a Novel Elevated Temperature Hydroforming System

    SBC: Applied Engineering Solutions, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Significant fuel cost savings can be realized in the automotive and aerospace industries by employing lightweight materials in the design and fabrication of vehicular components. To date, the exploitation of lightweight magnesium and aluminum alloys in component fabrication has been restricted due to their limited formability at room temperatures in conventional metal stamping processes. Hydrofo ...

  10. Transformer Ratio Enhancement Experiment for Next Generation Dielectric Wakefield Accelerators

    SBC: EUCLID TECHLABS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    70838B02-II Dielectric wakefield acceleration is presently being studied intensively as a promising technique to provide efficient and cost effective high gradient acceleration of electrons for next generation linear colliders. This project will develop an experimental scheme to enhance the efficiency of dielectric wakefield acceleration by up to a factor of 4, compared to conventional colline ...
