The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY24 is not expected to be complete until March, 2025.

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. DroN2O: A Drone-Based System for Measuring Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Agricultural Fields

    SBC: MICHIGAN AEROSPACE CORP            Topic: 1

    Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an inexpensive system to sense nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from agricultural fields using laser-based sensors mounted on drones. These sensors include an optical absorption cell, a wind sensor, and a camera for plant health and ground assessment. The measurements from these sensors will be combined and processed with artificial-intelligence-enab ...

  3. Integration of Ultrahigh Capacity Sorbents into Direct Air Capture Systems

    SBC: MOSAIC MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: T

    Addressing climate change from greenhouse gas emissions to prevent continued global warming will be done with a suite of technologies. Direct air capture (DAC) of carbon dioxide (CO2) is receiving significant attention as a way to reverse these emissions, however, it is a relatively new technology that will require continued technology development for viable cost targets to be realized. DAC is sig ...

  4. Engineering of Scalable Platinum-free Electrodes for Pure-Water AEM Water Electrolysis

    SBC: EVOLOH, INC.            Topic: T

    Producing green hydrogen using renewable energy can reduce emissions for major domestic industrial sectors which use hydrogen as a feedstock like ammonia fertilizer, refineries, chemicals and steel. Additionally, green hydrogen can be used to reduce dependencies on foreign energy sources as a transportation fuel for heavy-duty vehicles, a long-duration energy storage medium, or as a natural gas re ...

  5. A transformative low cost approach for Direct Air Mineralization of CO2 via repeated cycles of ambient weathering of metal oxides

    SBC: EQUIOPPS, INC            Topic: T

    Increasing concentration of CO 2 in the atmosphere poses a threat to the global climate. One promising method for reducing atmospheric CO 2 is a repeated enhanced weathering process. Enhanced weathering is a process where a natural reaction between CO 2 gas and minerals rich in magnesium and/or calcium is accelerated to quickly form a solid carbonate. The cycle can be repeated by separating the CO ...

  6. Co-Generation of Low-Energy, CO2-Free Hydrogen and Ordinary Portland Cement from Ca-Rich Rocks

    SBC: Finke, Cody            Topic: G

    We are building a technology that produces low cost hydrogen while releasing low or no carbon dioxide emissions. Key to our affordable hydrogen is the co-generation of valuable co-products like: Sulfuric Acid or Cement. Our processes are lower emission, lower energy and lower cost than conventional production method. We validated a proof-of-concept in our lab in May 2019 and our objective is to de ...

  7. Rechargeable carbon-oxygen battery: A new class of ultra low-cost, lightweight energy storage technology

    SBC: NOON ENERGY INC            Topic: G

    Noon Energy has developed a new class of battery technology that will cost-effectively turn intermittent solar and wind electricity into on-demand power. It uses ultra-low-cost storage media and can match the energy efficiency of lithium-ion technology. It stores energy by splitting CO2 into solid carbon and oxygen in a flow battery configuration, utilizing abundant materials and simple reaction c ...

  8. Space Division Multiplexing with Multi-Core Fiber for Energy Efficient Integrated Photonic Networking Technologies

    SBC: ULTRA-LOW LOSS TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: G

    The trend for short-reach optical fiber communications, those used for data centers and HPC, has been to use simple and power-efficient approaches to scale bandwidth. Approaches include parallel single mode (ex. more fibers), multi-level modulation coupled with direct detection (ex. four-level pulse amplitude modulation or PAM-4), and wide channel spacing (i.e. coarse WDM or CWDM). Bandwidth and c ...

  9. The salt and iron path to renewables integration

    SBC: Inlyte Energy, Inc.            Topic: NA

    To meet the grand challenges of climate change and energy independence we must replace fossil fuels with solar, wind, and storage. The sodium metal halide (NaMx) battery is a uniquely attractive solution for next-generation grid storage. The raw storage materials in the NaMx iron chemistry are table salt (NaCl) and iron, two of the most abundant and lowest-cost materials. In addition, the NaMx bat ...

  10. SeaSTAR: Selective Thalassic Ambulatory Retriever (STAR)

    SBC: OTHER LAB, INC.            Topic: G

    Growth, electrification, and increased installation of renewable energy is driving significant increases in worldwide demand for metals like manganese, nickel, copper, and cobalt. This increase in commodity prices and projected demand has driven interest in exploring new sources of minerals such as deep sea mining. The abyssal plain contains locations of concentrated deposits of polymetallic nodul ...
