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 grower applicable Alfalfa Leafcutting Bee incubation protocols to extend interruption duration for improved pollination management that improves seed yield and bee health

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 812

    The purpose of this proposal is to improve the protocols of incubation interruption of Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALBs) used in the managed pollination of alfalfa seed crop. An efficient alfalfa pollination management program coordinates bee release with bloom onset while minimizing residual pesticide hazard. Our customer feedback suggests that this approach may increase yield up to 100% for grower ...

  2. Alfalfa bloom prediction using plant images and processing techniques for the purpose of improving pollination using alfalfa leafcutting bees

    SBC: Kairosys Inc.            Topic: 813

    The purpose of this proposal is to conduct research that will provide alfalfa seed growers a bloom forecast application to improve their pollination practices and increase yield. Most U.S. growers outside of California use Alfalfa Leafcutting Bees (ALB) for pollination because they increase yield by more than 50% over honey bees. Growers spend ~$400/acre for ALB's, yet our customer diligence i ...

  3. MEMBRANES AND MATERIALS FOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY Subtopic: High Performance Conductors "Reinforced Commercial Metals for Enhanced Electrical and Thermal Conductivity"

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMIC FIBERS, LLC            Topic: 12b

    Major improvements in the electrical and thermal conductivity of metals used in conductors are needed to improve the energy efficiency and reliability of our national electrical power systems. These metals need to be stronger and more resistant to corrosion, oxidation and fatigue which reduce the reliability and lifespan of conductors and create high costs for maintenance, repair and replacement. ...

  4. COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS FOR THE DESIGN OF LIQUID METAL THERMOMAGNETIC SYSTEMS

    SBC: Maidana, Carlos            Topic: 32k

    Liquid metal cooled fission reactors are both moderated and cooled by a liquid metal solution. These reactors are typically very compact and they can be used in regular electric power production, for naval and space propulsion systems or in fission surface power systems for planetary exploration. Liquid metals in fusion reactors can be used in heat exchange, tritium breeder systems and in first wa ...

  5. Switching Electronics for Space-Based Telescopes with Advanced AO Systems

    SBC: Sunlite Science & Technology, Inc            Topic: S201

    A 32x32-channel multiplexing Application Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) driver, which can hold a voltage signal with a 16-bit resolution or beyond, is proposed. Such a driver will greatly reduce the operation power, and are compact and reliable. When the ASIC driver is vertically integrated with a Deformable Mirror (DM), the potential wiring failure will be eliminated. Furthermore, radiation r ...

  6. SDR-Based MicroADS-B for Low Altitude Small UAS Operations

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: A302

    ADS-B is emerging as the defacto standard for manned aircraft in the context of NextGen ATM. There are several advantages to ADS-B, but most ADS-B gear was developed for manned aircraft, and some smaller versions have been developed for UAVs recently. However, even the smallest currently-available ADS-B transponder is still about 250g, which is not suitable for small UAVs, such as those becoming p ...

  7. Autonomous Air Traffic Reporting and Operations for UAS

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: A302

    A hardware/software solution for autonomous reporting of flight operations of a UAS is proposed. Such a system would enable the UAS to report identity, position, and other information to local human and autonomous traffic and air traffic controllers in an autonomous manner, in legacy terminology. This will improve the overall safety of UAS operations, and lead to easier integration of UASs into th ...

  8. Portable Neutron Spectrometer

    SBC: Radiation Detection Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA133003

    Proposed is the development of an advanced solid state neutron spectrometer (NeuKopis) with directional resolve, building from prototype instruments that have demonstrated the art-of-the-possible. The intrinsic neutron detection efficiency of the refined

  9. Cognitive Computing Application for Defense Contracting

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: AF151194

    A cognitive computing natural-language question/answer system for defense contracting documents is proposed. The results of the Phase I effort are discussed. A detailed Phase II technical plan is presented. This includes refinements to the Phase I work, extended build-out and testing of the proposed system. Implementation plans are presented.
