The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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.

The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.

  1. Black Carbon and UV Particulate Matter, Multi-gas, Multi-pollutant Sensor Platform

    SBC: MICROAETH CORPORATION            Topic: 18NCER2A

    As forest fires are increasing in prevalence and intensity there is a need for miniaturized, lower cost, and easily portable air sensors that provide information to first responders, public health managers and communities so informed, timely decisions can be made. PM2.5 is an accepted standard for particulate matter (PM) measurements, but PM2.5 mass measurements cannot identify sources without ana ...

  2. Open Path Analyzer for Accurate, ppt-level Quantification of EtO via Mid-Infrared Cavity Enhanced Spectrometry

    SBC: NIKIRA LABS INC.            Topic: 20OSAPE2A

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to utilize open-path, mid-infrared cavity enhanced absorption spectrometry to develop a sensitive (< 10 ppt), fast (< 100 seconds), and highly-selective ethylene oxide (EtO) analyzer suitable for field-deployment. The US EPA has concluded that EtO, which is widely used in ethylene glycol production and medical ster ...

  3. Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator to Remove Per- and Poly-fluoroalkyl Substances from Water

    SBC: BioLargo, Inc.            Topic: 18NCER1C

    This proposal addresses the need for a pre-treatment technology to remove per- and poly- fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) from industrial wastewaters. Phase I involves the design, build and testing of a novel technology to remove PFAS from water, termed the Aqueous Electrostatic Concentrator (AEC). This technology will be tested as an electrical bench-scale device that concentrates PFAS through selec ...

  4. Development of a near-real-time analytical system for measurement of N-nitrosamines in water reuse.

    SBC: HYPERION ANALYTICAL LLC            Topic: 20OSAPE1A

    Trace organic compounds are a major challenge for water reuse. N-nitrosamines and NDMA in particular are of concern because they occur in treated wastewaters at levels closest to those of potential human health concern. These are formed as a disinfection byproducts (DBPs) in treatment processes used in water recycling. NDMA limits and monitoring requirements are included in most permitting require ...

  5. Chemical Sensor-Modulated Transistors for Water Treatment Performance Monitoring

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 20OSAPE1A

    The growing scarcity of potable water is increasing pressure on public health, the environment, and the economy, intensifying the clear and present need to advance water recycling and reclamation technologies. To that end, the EPA and has announced the National Water Reuse Action Plan (WRAP). Annual spending on water reuse is $1.8 billion, expected to increase by ~30% by 2027. As the water reuse m ...

  6. Laser-based In-situ Testing of Microbes with Ultraviolet Spectroscopy (LITMUS)

    SBC: PHOTON SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: 20OSAPE1A

    This proposal addresses the need for continuous microbial monitoring in water reuse treatment systems. The proposal will lead to a near-real-time, in-situ, reagentless sensor for potable and non-potable water systems. LITMUS (Laser-based Insitu Testing of Microbes with Ultraviolet Spectroscopy) uses deep UV laser excitation to directly detect microbes from the autofluorescence of protein-bound aro ...

  7. Regenerative Capacitive Electro-Desalination System (RECED)

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: 14NCER4B

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Water (OW) is seeking innovative technologies to improve the performance and reliability of small drinking water systems. In response, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a novel Regenerative Capacitive Electro-Desalination System (RECED) to enable the use of reduced-quality water sources, such as weakly saline brackish wat ...

  8. Cost-effective, portable and automated platform for microplastics characterization

    SBC: LUCENDI INC            Topic: 19NCER1A

    An estimated 75% of litter along the shoreline globally is made of plastic. Plastic particles and debris find their way into oceans, rivers, lakes, sediment, and eventually into our bodies. Over 90% of the plastic contamination in the open ocean is attributed to microplastic particles (MP) - i.e. plastic objects with diameter

  9. Remote Air Quality Reporting (RAQR) Device

    SBC: INTELLISENSE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: 18NCER2A

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking a ground-level air-quality monitoring device to measure wildland fire pollutants including carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and particulates, in a small, easy-to-use unit capable of data storage and data viewing. As more frequent wildfires are expected to occur near populated areas, air-quality monitoring will be more persisten ...

  10. Radiation Contamination Visualization and Mapping (RaCOM) System

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: 19NCER4A

    To address the EPA's need for 3D mapping and radiation data fusion technologies, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Radiation Contamination Visualization and Mapping (RaCOM) System. Key advantages of RaCOM include mapping and visualization of radiation contamination to enable planning of cleanup operations while minimizing exposure to crew and equipment. End users include ...
