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. Ultra-High Temperature Thermal Barrier Coatings

    SBC: HiFunda, LLC            Topic: 19d

    State of the art yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) based thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are typically limited to maximum use temperatures of 1200-1300C. A thermal barrier coating (TBC) with a 1500C temperature capability would be a major gas turbine materials breakthrough. New coatings with a 200C temperature advantage can be used by the gas turbine industry to significantly increase turbine effi ...

  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 ...

  4. ICE Ignition Using Transient Plasma Acceleration

    SBC: ARC TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: 17e

    Lean-burn gasoline engines have difficulty reliably igniting fuel mixtures at sufficiently high air to fuel ratios. Common ignition systems are based on a spark gap driven by a pulse transformer ignition coil). Unfortunately, these systems have small plasma excitation areas, are slow, wear down the spark plug electrodes, and are not suitable for high pressure engines. The use of transient plasma i ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Hydrogen Contamination Detection

    SBC: Skyre, Inc.            Topic: 14b

    The new purity requirements SAE J7219, ISO 14687-2 and ISO 14687 (Table I and Figure 1 below) place a three orders of magnitude increase on the accuracy of the instrumentation that is necessary to detect these extremely low levels of several critical contaminants. The design and verification of the conceptual approach of a cost-effective and reliable instrument that can sample the hydrogen at the ...
