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. A Blockchain-enabled Peer-to-Peer Energy Trading Platform for Managing Complex Exchange of Kilowatt-hours and Negawatts

    SBC: BEMCONTROLS, LLC            Topic: 12c

    The structure of the electric utility business has long been a centralized model where an electric utility is the only authority selling electricity to, and buying excess rooftop PV generation, from customers. This is changing as utilities explore new business models including Distributed System Operator (DSO) models. On the other side of the meter, with the increasing penetration of rooftop solar ...

  2. A Concrete Additive Manufacturing Process for Fixed and Floating Wind Turbine Foundations and Towers

    SBC: JC Solutions            Topic: 14b

    Tall towers and foundations for modern offshore and land-based wind turbines are too large to transport over roads or rail due to their extremely large dimensions. Existing “one-off” on-site construction methods are too expensive, and are too slow for manufacturing foundations and towers in the large numbers needed, especially for offshore components manufactured in ports with limited lay-down ...

  3. A microfluidic ice nucleating particle counter for continuous measurements from small aerial platforms

    SBC: Handix Scientific Inc.            Topic: 23a

    Quantifying atmospheric aerosol, clouds and precipitation processes are critical needs for understanding and interpreting Earth’s changing energy budget, is a DOE objective, and is of broader benefit to the public. Specifically, the formation of ice in the atmosphere depends on the nature and abundance of ice nucleating particles, and has major implications for precipitation and cloud interactio ...

  4. Biological CO2 Fixation for the Production of Formic Acid Powered by Sugars

    SBC: Gate Fuels Incorporated            Topic: 12a

    Formic acid (FA, CH2O2) is the simplest carboxylic acid. It is mainly used as a preservative and antibacterial agent in livestock feed. A significant fraction of FA is used in the leather-processing, textile and rubber industries and a small fraction of formic acid is used as a cleaning agent replacing mineral acids. Aqueous FA is a promising liquid hydrogen-storage carrier with a hydrogen storage ...

  5. Bulk Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 03b

    This DOE SBIR/STTR program will result in the commercialization of a low-cost anostructured composite thermoelectric device. Such devices represent the next generation solution for an increasingly strained energy market by converting existing waste heat into electrical power. More waste heat is generated by the combination of industry and automobiles than the total contribution of all renewable en ...

  6. Cavity Enhanced Thomson Scattering System for Low Temperature Plasmas

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 30a

    Electrons play a very key role in plasma chemistry and dynamics of low temperature plasmas. Improved capability for measuring electron number density, ne, and electron energy distribution function, EEDF, in weakly ionized low temperature plasmas would benefit both fundamental study and application areas. For example, the capability would directly benefit emerging research targeted at modifying and ...

  7. Climate Control Technology for Fossil Energy

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: 24f

    Concern over CO2 emissions and global greenhouse effects has prompted new uses for reclaimed CO2 effluent from coal fired power plants. Similarly, volatile organic solvent emissions have prompted an initiative to identify cleaner solvents for high performance polymer processing, particularly when such processing requires large volumes of environmentally unfriendly, toxic organic solvents. Furthe ...

  8. Defect Free, Ultra-Rapid Thinning/Polishing of Diamond Crystal Radiator Targets (20??m) for Highly Linearly Polarized Photon Beams

    SBC: Sinmat Inc            Topic: 46e

    The fabrication of high-quality ultra thin (~20 micron) diamond crystals targets for 9 GeV highly polarized photon beams is an outstanding challenge. Current state of the art polishing/thinning techniques are not successful in thinning single crystal diamond to such dimension because of its extreme hardness and chemical inertness. These techniques create significant stresses surface and sub-surfac ...

  9. Extreme Temperature Distributed Sensing in Modular Energy Systems

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: 17b

    Fossil Energy (FE)-based modular power systems are a growing market that can meet the demand of rural and isolated areas both domestically and abroad. Many of these systems, also known as Radically Engineered Modular System (REMS), provide power and/or heat for farms, homes, and other industrial processes. The concept is to produce syngas (synthetic natural gas) from coal and readily available bio ...

  10. Functionalized, Therapeutic-Loaded Liposomes for the Acute Treatment of TBI

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: DHA18A001

    Traumatic brain injury is a common problem in both the military and civilian communities, but current treatment protocols are focused on managing symptoms and fail to prevent significant long-term repercussions. In the proposed program, Luna will demonstrate the feasibility of a liposome-based therapeutic delivery system capable of delivering hydrophilic and hydrophobic therapeutics to the traumat ...
