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. Offshore Spar Based Fish Feeder

    SBC: Net Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As fish farmers attempt to increase capacity, they are being forced to more exposed growing sites. The technology for rearing fish in this high-energy environment is dependent on robust fish pens and the infrastructure to support them. One very important technology that must be developed is an automated feeding system capable of operating in this difficult environment.Using already proven ¿spar t ...

  4. Ballast Water Exchange Monitoring System

    SBC: Glosten, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Glosten Ballast Management System developed under SBIR Phase I determined that tracking ballast exchanges was feasible and showed strong commercial viability. Phase II of this project is intended to demonstrate, with a full-scale shipboard installation, that automated tracking of a vessel¿s ballast system is practical and cost effective for both the operator and the regulator. The system is ...

  5. Developing Novel Rice Cultivars With Improved Processing

    SBC: Anawah, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: United States domestic rice production is an important industry that directly and indirectly generates over 55,000 jobs and over $9 billion in income. An abundant by-product of the rice milling industry is rice bran. Rich in nutritious proteins, vitamins, and antioxidants, it is nevertheless an underutilized resource because of its tendency to spoil rapidly. Spoilage is caus ...

  6. Commercialization of Sustained Release Delivery Systems for Controlling and Monitoring Fire Ants

    SBC: BioGuard Research & Development, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Imported fire ants have a combined impact/cost of over $6B annually including loss of human life. Of that, approximately $1B is agricultural damage to crops, livestock and other domesticated animals. The purpose is to improve/reformulate then laboratory/field-test the efficacy of a series of "very successful" Phase I SBIR sustained-release prototypes for deliverying volatile ...

  10. Wood-Strand Erosion Control Material

    SBC: FOREST CONCEPTS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    NON-TECHNICAL SUMMARY: Soil erosion from disturbed lands, construction sites and low-volume roads is a major source of water pollution in all areas of the United States. This project will develop a wood-based erosion control material for forest and wildlands applications that performs or exceeds the functionality of agricultural straw while addressing straw's known limitations.
