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. Advances in Ammonia Detection Systems

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: 811

    This Phase II SBIR Research project will continue the development and testing of an innovative instrument for measuring fluxes of atmospheric ammonia to be delivered at the end of Phase II. The instrument will combine advances in diode laser technology with sophisticated laser modulation methods to quantify ammonia in a low pressure flow cell. The instrument¿s small size and light weight will ...

  2. Miniature Chemical Ionization Mass Spectrometer for Measuring Tropospheric Ammonia

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes to develop an automated, fast, and compact instrument to measure tropospheric ammonia from light aircraft. Ammonia plays important roles in aerosol particle chemistry, and particle characteristics are critical in understanding climate change and air quality. Existing ammonia instruments are either too large or measure too slowly for use on light aircraft. The unique ...

  3. Materials Characterization & Manufacturing Development of an Irrigation Ditch Liner System

    SBC: FastDitch, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: The productive use of surface water for agriculture has become a critical national and international priority as competition for water resources increasingly outpaces supply. This is demonstrated by the World Bank's investment of $3 billion a year in water projects. Small earth-lined irrigation ditches are used to deliver water from larger canals or streams directly to field ...

  4. Solar Powered Bilateral Virtual Fencing Using Global Positioning System Technology & Animal Behavior for Controlling Free-Ranging Animals

    SBC: Future Segue            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Managing free-ranging animal distribution in real-time remains a worldwide challenge. Most conventional approaches to improve animal distribution cannot be implemented in real-time because the tool to bring about the change is fixed in time and or space while forage and animal resources are temporally and spatially dynamic. Until recently Bilateral Virtual Fencing (BVF) was ...

  6. Innovative Wood and Ceramicrete Composite Building Material

    SBC: Santa Clara Woodworks            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Forest management agencies and environmental groups have recognized the need to reduce fuel load and increase use of small diameter timber thinnings in order to improve the health of the forest and prevent forest fires. It is difficult to cultivate demand for residues as they are neither of high value for building material nor available in large enough quantities for traditi ...

  7. Distributed Relevance Ranking in Heterogeneous Document Collections

    SBC: Deep Web Technologies, Llc            Topic: N/A

    72223S03-I Given the large and ever-growing volume of scientific information spread throughout the Internet, a researcher with limited time needs help to determine the most relevant documents to review. No satisfactory tools exist to retrieve the most relevant documents across different collections. Therefore, this project will develop, test, and implement key components of a distributed approa ...

  8. Development of a New, Low Frequency, Rf-Focused Linac Structure

    SBC: Linac Systems            Topic: N/A

    70755S02-II The acceleration of proton, light-ion, and heavy-ion beams are important for many scientific, medical, industrial, and defense applications. Developments that reduce the size, cost, and complexity of these accelerator systems would be welcome. The weakest link in most accelerator systems is the low energy end, where the disruptive effects of acceleration are the greatest and the ...

  10. A Reliable Optical System for Natural Gas Pipeline Leak Detection

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    72927S03-I The safety and reliability of the nation¿s natural gas infrastructure requires the rapid and efficient detection of pipeline leaks. Existing methods have the requisite sensitivity, but are too slow. What is needed is a rapid, remote sensing system, suitable for aircraft deployment, that can provide short term (hours to weeks) monitoring of potential trouble spots. This project wi ...
