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. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  2. A stable, low cost, low power CO2 sensor for demand controlled ventilation

    SBC: Matrix Sensors, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001738

    "We propose to develop a stable, low-cost, low power CO2 sensor module that meets the requirements of the ARPA-E SENSORS FOA, namely, 30 ppm precision over a dynamic range of 400 ppm to 2000 ppm with 10 ppm drift per year. Existing optical non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 sensors simply cannot scale to the cost and power requirements of the FOA. We therefore propose a solid state architecture ...

  3. A Bidirectional, Transformerless Converter Topology for Grid-tied Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: Opcondys, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Grid-tied energy storage systems provide stabilization to the electric grid that is necessary to accommodate the growing percentage of electricity generated by intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Existing conversion systems between the storage media and the utility lines are large, costly and only 95%-98% energy efficient. In this ARPA-E project, Opcondys, Inc. will build ...

  4. Resonant voltage regulator architecture eliminates 30-50% energy consumption of digital ICs

    SBC: Empower Semiconductor Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Empower Semiconductor has developed a resonant integrated voltage regulator (IVR) technology that can dramatically improve the energy efficiency of any digital CMOS IC. As Moore’s law has advanced, the plexity and power needs of digital ICs has grown dramatically. The voltages required by these ICs have lowered and the resulting voltage accuracy needs have become more stringent. Existing voltage ...

  5. Learning to Code with a Pretend Play Storytelling Model

    SBC: CODESPARK, INC.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In previous research and development, the developers created codeSpark, a game that employs a visual and block-based approach with puzzles to teach programming skills to children ages 5 to 9 years old. In this project, the developers will create a prototype of a fantasy-based story to be integrated within the existing game. The pretend-play scenarios will include characters, storylines, and incent ...

  6. Structured Adaptivity for Computer Science Coding

    SBC: ZYANTE INC.            Topic: 91990018R0006

    In this project, the team will develop a prototype of a web-based coding progression tool for high school students to practice coding from easy to successively harder levels. The prototype will provide graded practice exercises, solutions, and explanations for important coding tasks. At the end of Phase I, in a pilot study in five high school classrooms, the researchers will examine whether the pr ...

  7. Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Differentiation of Viral vs. Bacterial Infections for Point of Care Applications

    SBC: GeneCapture, Inc.            Topic: CBD15C001

    The modern warfighter faces the constant threat of endemic infections, multi-drug resistant bacteria and Biological Warfare Agents. In order to provide accurate front-line treatment that will curtail the overuse of antibiotics, a rapid and robust molecula

  8. Joint Learning of Text-based Categories

    SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA152005

    The fundamental problem addressed by this SBIR proposal is the capability to uncover new entity types, relations and topics that are implicit in text documents.Joint inference offers an opportunity to make discoveries that are more accurate and more nuanced than traditional pipelined approaches, but the hypothesis space is more complex and extraordinarily large.In this project we propose to develo ...

  9. Signal Processing for Layered Sensing

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: CBD152006

    As a foundational component of a Layered Sensing architecture, Toyon proposes to develop a Multi-Modal Fusion Module (M2FM) capable ofconfirming detections from Chemical, Biological and Radiological (CBR) sensing networks by fusing together information from other (non-CBR)sensors. The module will provide information to assist operators in confirming an initial CBR detection or rejecting it as a fa ...

  10. Self-Decontaminating Textiles

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: CBD161001

    Luna Innovations is addressing the need to develop novel fluid repellent textile treatments for military uniforms that will actively decontaminate chemical and biological warfare agents (CBWA).There have been recent significant advances in textile treatments that have demonstrated water, oil and chemical agent resistance that are superior to Quarpel repellent treatments currently used on protectiv ...
