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. OPERATIONAL MODEL FOR THE DESIGN OF OPTIMUM WIND BREAKS TO REDUCE WIND-CAUSED EROSION OF SOIL

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO DEVELOP AN OPERATIONAL MODEL FOR THE DESIGN AND PLACEMENT OF WIND BREAKS TO CONTROLSOIL EROSION. OPTIMUM PROTECTION IS RELATED TO PHYSICAL PARAMETERS (HEIGHT, WIDTH, POROSITY, MATERIAL), NUMBER OF BARRIERS, LOCAL TERRAIN FEATURES, SOIL CHARACTERISTICS (INCLUDING SIZE DISTRIBUTION, MOISTURE CONTENT, COMPOSITION)AND METEOROLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS. CONSEQUENTLY, S ...

  2. ROBOTIC TRANSPLANTING

    SBC: Agrobotics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP THE FUNDAMENTAL CONTROL ALGORITHMSAND PERFORM THE SYSTEMS ENGINEERING STUDIES NECESSARY TO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC FEASIBILITY OF ROBOTIC TRANSPLANTING. ANIMATED CAD SIMULATIONS OF WORK-CELLS AND PLANT MATERIALS MOVEMENT ARE USED TO EVALUATE THE CAPACITY OF COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE ROBOTS. THESE COMPUTER SIMULAITONS ALSO DETERMINE THE TECHNICAL FEASIBILITY OF E ...

  3. DEVELOPMENT OF AN ECONOMICALLY COMPETITIVE OYSTER/SHRIMP PRODUCTION SYSTEM

    SBC: Aquaculture Technology            Topic: N/A

    THE RESEARCH WILL PROVIDE TECHNICAL INFORMATION ON THE PRODUCTION OF PREMIUM QUALITY HALF-SHELL OYSTERS USING SHRIMP POND EFFLUENT. SHRIMP POND WATER IS PUMPED THROUGH FLUIDIZED OYSTER COLUMNS, PASSED THOUGH SEDIMENTATION TANKS,AND RETURNED TO THE POND. WHEN FED TO OYSTERS, THE ALGAE- LADEN POND WATER CAN PRODUCE MARKET-SIZE OYSTERS IN LESS THAN 200 DAYS. IN THE FLUIDIZED COLUMNS, THE OYSTERS ARE ...

  5. EVALUATION OF A FILTER PRESS SYSTEM TO REDUCE MOISTURE CONTENT OF FISH PRODUCTION WASTES

    SBC: Bay Port Fish Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    AS THE AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY HAS GROWN, LITTLE ATTENTION HAS BEEN GIVEN TO THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS OF AQUACULTURE, UNTIL RECENTLY. BETTER COLLECTION TECHNIQUES FOR FISH WASTEMATERIAL, WHICH IS IN THE FORM OF A SLURRY AND IS APPROXIMATELY 95% WATER, HAVE INCREASED OPERATING COSTS FOR THE AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY TO TREAT EFFLUENTS AND DISPOSE OF SOLIDS GENERATED. FUTURE REGULATIONS MAY LIMIT CURRENT D ...

  6. MEMBRANE-BASED MICROBIAL-OXIDATION PROCESS FOR PHEROMONE PRODUCTION

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED METHODS ARE NEEDED TO LIMIT THE COSTLY DAMAGE CAUSED BY FOREST BEETLES THROUGHOUT THE U.S. AND THE WORLD. INSECT PHEROMONES--CHEMICALS THAT CAN BE USED TO CONTROL INSECT BEHAVIOR--ARE AN ATTRACTIVE PEST-CONTROL METHOD BECAUSE OF THEIR SAFETY, SPECIFICITY, AND EFFECTIVENESS. THE USE OF FOREST-BEETLE PHEROMONES HAS BEEN LIMITED, HOWEVER, BY THE LACK OF A COMMERCIALLY PRACTICAL, COST-EFFECTI ...

  7. EMPOWERMENT OF DISADVANTAGED WOMEN THROUGH MULTI-CULTURAL COOPERATIVE

    SBC: Big Sky Artisans            Topic: N/A

    THE METHODS TO BE EMPLOYED IN THIS PARTICIPATORY EXPERIMENT SEEK TO UTILIZE VISUAL AND DEMONSTRATION METHODS IN TEACHINGNEW CRAFTS AND BUSINESS SKILLS TO WOMEN WITH MULTIPLE BARRIERS, (E.G. ENGLISH LANGUAGE DEFICIENCIES; LOW SELF-ESTEEM; LACK OF PERSONAL PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS) IN ORDER TO OVERCOME THE DISSIMILARITIES OF CULTURAL AND ETHNIC VALUES AND TRADITIONAL SKILLS. IT IS THE AIM OF THIS EXPE ...

  8. BOVINE IGF CARRIER PROTEIN TO ENHANCE GROWTH, MILK PRODUCTION, AND WOUND HEALING

    SBC: Biogrowth Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OVERALL GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A NOVEL, COST-EFFECTIVE CARRIER VEHICLE FOR BOVINE INSULIN-LIKE GROWTH FACTOR (IGF): THE BOVINE IGF CARRIER PROTEIN (BBP3).BBP3 WILL BIND IGF WITH HIGH AFFINITY, PROTECT IT FROM DEGRADATION, AND SLOWLY RELEASE IT IN AN ACTIVE FORM. THEREFORE, BBP3 WILL SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE THE BIOACTIVITY OF IGF, PARTICULARLY IN GROWTH PROMOTION, MILK PRODUCTION AND ...

  9. SALMONELLA CONTROL ON POULTRY USING A DISINFECTANT DIP

    SBC: Biomedical Development Corporation            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, POULTRY PRODUCTS WHICH ARE PROCESSED AND DISTRIBUTED IN A NON-COOKED FORM, MAY CONTAIN SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS OF PATHOGENIC BACTERIA SUCH AS SALMONELLA, LISTERIA AND CAMPYLOBACTER. POULTRY PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY HAS NOT AT THIS TIME DEVELOPED A SYSTEM OF EVISCERATION THAT DOES NOT CONTAMINATE THE CARCASS TO SOME EXTENT. TECHNOLOGY TO ELIMINATE THESE CONTAMINATING PATHOGENS FROM THE CARCASS ...

  10. A LIVE SALMONELLA ENTERITIDIS VACCINE FOR POULTRY

    SBC: Biomune Inc            Topic: N/A

    THERE HAS BEEN A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN EGG BORNE SALMONELLA ENTERITIDIS (SE) INFECTION IN HUMANS. FROM JANUARY 1985 THROUGH 1988, THERE WERE 4976 REPORTED SE CASES IN 140 OUTBREAKS IN THE NORTHEASTERN U.S., RESULTING IN 896 HOSPITALIZATIONS AND 30 DEATHS. SIXTY FIVE (73%) OF OUTBREAKS WITH IDENTIFIED FOOD VEHICLES WERE RELATED TO CONSUMPTION OF GRADE A EGGS OR GRADE A EGG PRODUCTS. FROM 1985 TO 198 ...
