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. A Miniaturized Carbon Dioxide Detector

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: 819S

    NOAA supports over 25,000 underwater dive programs per year.  To increase the duration and depth of these dives, the use of closed circuit mixed gas rebreathers (CCRs) is being considered.  As there currently are no sensors to detect CO2 levels in the breathing gas, Giner, Inc. proposes to continue development of an electrochemical CO2 sensor for CCR use.  The technical innovation i ...

  2. Near-IR Differential Absorption Lidar for Automated Water Vapor Profiling

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: 832

    Measurement of vertical profiles of H2O vapor density in the troposphere can provide new understanding of H2O vapor mass transport.  Increased density o9f such measurements can improve predictive capability for precipitation in meteorology and can increase our understanding of feedback mechanisms involving the interaction of H2O vapor, radiative balance and precipitation that are important in ...

  3. Device and Strategy for Shock Wave Mitigation

    SBC: Larry Hill Consulting Inc.            Topic: 091FH1

    Substantial simulation work has been done showing that traffic shock-waves can be reduced or eliminated through "cooperative adaptive cruise control" and "communicating cruise control" where following vehicles are warned that leading vehicles are slowing in time to react.  To be effective, however, such devices must be installed and operate in the majority of vehicles in t ...

  4. Digital Imaging of Pipeline Mechanical Damage and Residual Stress

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: 091PH1

    While mechanical damage to pipelines is a common occurrence, the impact of mechanical damage on pipeline remaining life is not easily determined.  The mechanical damage features, such as residual stresses and stress concetrations, will determine the effect of the damage on pipeline remaining life.  Empirical relationships between damage features and burst pressure have been developed and ...

  5. A Multi-Pedestrian Counting System Using Fusion of Stereo Camera and Laser Scanner

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: 091FH4

    Automated vehicle counting technology has been in use for many years, but developments in automated pedestrian counting technology have been limited.  Pedestrians are more difficult to detect, track and count, than motor vehicles because their paths are much less constrained.  In Phae I, we propose to develop a new system for pedestrian detection, tracking and counting.  In this sys ...

  6. Electrochemical Ammonia Monitor for Agricultural Operations

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has identified the need for a practical analytical instrument for the detection of air emissions resulting from animal manure management systems. Based on this very important need, Giner, Inc. proposes to study and evaluate the feasibility of designing and fabricating a simple-to-operate, selective and solid-polymer electrolyte-based, thick-film electro?ch ...

  7. Advanced Remote Sensing Methods for Cogongrass Mapping

    SBC: GeoVantage Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Cogongrass is recognized as one of the most significant invasive species in the U.S. Cogongrass is a growing threat as it continues its rapid spread across the Southeast, reducing forest and pasture productivity, destroying wildlife habitat, impacting rights of ways and presenting an extreme fire hazard. Throughout the World it has gained notoriety as the "Worst Invasive Plant of Non-crop Lands". ...

  8. Synergistic Agents to Reduce Fungicide Resistance and Health Risks

    SBC: AGION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The growth of agricultural productivity in the past century can be partly attributed to an intense focus on pest management, including the development of fungicides and bactericides. Agricultural history contains many examples of fungi or bacteria causing complete crop loss. The use of fungicides and bactericides can prevent such catastrophic losses and maximize yield, however, these benefits come ...

  9. Blow Molded Bioproducts From Renewable Plastics

    SBC: METABOLIX, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The widespread use of synthetic plastics has increased concerns over their adverse environmental impacts, and dramatic fluctuations in the cost and availability of petrochemical sources for plastic production creates the need for renewable, environmentally-friendly plastics derived from agricultural sources. Blow molded products are used widely in packaging, and are a major component of the plasti ...

  10. Solar Optical Waveguide System for Value Added Transplant Production

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Situation or Problem: Use of high quality transplants (seedlings or rooted cuttings) is critical for success in horticultural crop production. The transplant quality can be evaluated using various aspects including visual quality, vigor and status of pests/diseases. As high quality transplant production is a specialized technology, more growers purchase their transplants from specialized propagato ...
