The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY21 is not expected to be complete until September, 2022.

Download all SBIR.gov award data either with award abstracts (290MB) or without award abstracts (65MB). A data dictionary and additional information is located on the Data Resource Page. Files are refreshed monthly.

  1. Safety Software Assurance Compliance verification and Risk Evaluation (S-SACRE)

    SBC: Tri-Guard Risk Solutions, LTD            Topic: 30

    Most digital systems being software intensive are also vulnerable to attacks that exploit software weaknesses. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, “exploiting weaknesses in digital technology could be the most attractive route for those terrorists seeking to attack nuclear facilities without fear of interdiction.” Recent publicized events about cyber-attack on critical infrast ...

  2. Experimental analysis and model development of pyrolysis/combustion of coal/biomass in a bench scale spouted bed reactor

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: 15a

    There is widespread concern regarding carbon emissions from fossil fuels, resulting in a drive towards improved efficiency in reactor (boiler) performance while reducing carbon emissions. Coal will continue to be a primary source of energy for economic growth for the foreseeable future, thus there is a push to reduce net carbon emissions of coal operated plants by replacing part of the coal with b ...

  3. A miniature, low-cost black carbon sensor for unmanned platforms

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC Inc.            Topic: 17b

    Achieving a systems-level understanding of science associated with climate change is a key topic within the DOE mission. Light absorbing particles are an important atmospheric constituent and have a direct impact on climate. They also impact air quality and health and human activities play a major role in their abundance and distribution. There is a critical need for improved observational capacit ...

  5. 31e. Pressurized Gas Beam Monitor for Extremely High Intensities

    SBC: MUPLUS INC            Topic: 31e

    A novel pressurized gasfilled multiRFcavity beam profile monitor has been studied that is simple and robust in highradiation environments. Charged particles passing through each RFcavity in the monitor produce intensitydependent ionized plasma, which changes the gas permittivity. Standard RF techniques to measure the change in quality factor (Q) and frequency (f) as a function of time are then use ...

  6. Rapid Development of Weapon Payloads via Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A001

    MATSYS proposes to adapt emerging additive manufacturing techniques (so-called 3-D Printing) for use with reactive structural materials and demonstrate this capability to rapidly fabricate reactive case. Our concept incorporates two major manufacturing steps: 3D printing of green compacts from pure Al or Al-based reactive powder blend; and Microwave (MW) sintering of green compacts into net-shaped ...

  7. Self-fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials (SF-SRM) for High Combustion Efficiency

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A002

    MATSYS proposes to develop, test and evaluate a scalable metal-based reactive structural material that will self-fragment to micron or sub-micron scale fuel particles when subjected to explosive shock loading, resulting in significantly enhanced metal combustion efficiency. Use of reactive material casings offers the potential for several-fold increases in blast and overpressure by generating rapi ...

  8. Innovative Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Technology Nodes

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Establish a radiation-aware analysis capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) for DoD ASICs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications. Layout-aware, calibrated single-event radiation models that captur ...

  9. Advanced Code for Photocathode Design

    SBC: Calabazas Creek Research, Inc.            Topic: 06a

    There are currently no comprehensive computational design tools for developing photocathodes and the electron sources they support. Existing codes do not address the latest photocathode materials, nor do they provide the complete physics related to electron emission. This is complicating design of RF guns and photoinjectors for accelerators and light sources. Statement of how this problem or situa ...

  10. Production of a Zero Calorie Sweetener L-arabinose from Biomass D-Xylose by an Enzyme Cocktail

    SBC: Cell-free Bioinnovation Inc.            Topic: 13a

    A new high-value product zero calorie sweetener L-arabinose has been identified because it may be produced from the D-xylose-rich aqueous biomass intermediate stream at low costs. L-arabinose is an FDA approved healthy sweetener with dual functions as a sucrase inhibitor and a prebiotic, but its current high price ($30/kg) prevents wide use. The co-production of high-value products such as L-ara ...
