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 an effective non-antibiotic dry-off agent for the dairy industry

    SBC: AMELGO            Topic: 83

    Intramammary infection (a.k.a., mastitis) is the largest attributable cause of lost productivity, discarded milk, chronic morbidity, and prophylactic antibiotic use in the dairy industry. The majority of new infections are associated with the dry period, during which the udders are temporarily engorged with milk that often leaks from the teat ends. Furthermore, the three major agencies of the U.S. ...

  2. Wheelchair Optimal Route Planning for Public Urban and Indoor Places

    SBC: Innovative Design Labs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Innovative Design Labs (IDL) proposes to create a system which helps guide wheelchair users along the best path through complex urban landscapes. Since the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) were established in 1990 the ability of wheelchair users to navigate has greatly improved. However, there are still many areas in which modification for accessibility was not “r ...

  3. Monitoring Individuals at Risk for Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: ADVANCED MEDICAL ELECTRONICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The project will create an affordable system to monitor adolescent athletes in contact sports to identify individuals at risk for traumatic brain injury from continual sub-concussive impacts. The need is to reduce the risk of long term brain injury by providing tools to tell when it's risky/safe to play and find areas where strength training and technique may reduce risk on an individual level. Th ...

  4. Sensing and Control of Stand-To-Sit Motions of a Wearable Bionics Suit

    SBC: Innovative Design Labs Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Innovative Design Labs (IDL), in collaboration with the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), proposes to create a system for the sensing and control of stand-to-sit motions of a wearable bionics suit. Recent research found that 3.86 million Americans require wheelchairs and the number has been increasing annually by an average annual rate of 5.9% a year. While wheelchairs provide freedom all ...

  5. Investigation of Donor and Acceptor Ion Implantation in AlN

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: 02a

    AlN is an attractive material for power electronics device applications due to its wide bandgap and resulting high electric breakdown field. One of the major challenges that need to be addressed to achieve full utilization of AlN for power electronics applications is the development of a doping strategy for both donors and acceptors. Ion implantation is a particularly attractive approach since it ...

  6. Late Award- Nanocomposite Coatings for Low-Cost Motor Windings in Electric Vehicles

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: 06g

    Electric vehicles, including hybrids in the nearer term, are the principal transportation technology by which the United States can become independent of foreign oil, can become energy independent overall, and can effect control over greenhouse emissions. For this to become reality, electric vehicle costs need to come down and performance needs to improve. For electric vehicle motors, the goals ...

  7. Direct Digital Secondary Electron Signal Acquisition Probe for Scanning Electron Microscope.

    SBC: SCIENCETOMORROW LLC            Topic: 08a

    ScienceTomorrow in collaboration with Dr. David C Joy, at the University of Tennessee Research is proposed to fabricate direct digital Quantitative Secondary Electron Detectors (QSED) for scanning electron microscopes (SEMs). If successful, commercial versions of the QSED would transform the SEM/STEM into a quantitative, metrological tool with enhanced capabilities that, in turn, would broaden re ...

  8. GaAsSb/AlGaAsP Superlattice Polarized Electron Source

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 41e

    The negative-electron-affinity (NEA) photocathodes which produce polarized electrons are a vital component of electron accelerators such as that at DoE Jefferson Lab and the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC). Future systems, such as the International Linear Collider (ILC), will require a polarized electron beam intensity at least 20 times greater than produced by strained GaAs, which is us ...

  9. Novel flavonoids as anti-inflammatory agents in alcoholism

    SBC: NAPROGENIX, INC.            Topic: NIAAA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Flavonoids are ubiquitous secondary metabolites in plants with many known health benefits, which are mostly ascribed to their potent anti-oxidant activity. However, a search for novel nicotinic ligands, using high throughput pharmacological screening of a native plant extract library, and subsequently a pure flavonoid library, led to the highly surprising con ...

  10. Accurate WiFi-Based Localization of Dementia Patients For Caregiver Support

    SBC: ASTER LABS, INC            Topic: NIA

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An estimated 5.4 million Americans had Alzheimer's disease in 2012 and a 50% increase in this number is expected by 2030. The majority of these patients (70%) will live at home where they receive 75% of their care frominformal caregivers, unpaid individuals such as family members, friends, and neighbors. These caregivers provide valuable services, often a ...
