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. Quench Detection Method for Large Superconducting Magnets using Robust MEMS Acoustic Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: 23c

    High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) materials have excellent mechanical and electrical properties that are attractive for various applications such as power cables and high field, high current superconducting magnets, particularly playing a key role in the commercialization of fusion energy machines. However, HTS materials have very slow normal zone propagation velocities (NZPV) (2-3 orders of ...

  3. NOVEL POLYMER-ELECTROLYTE MEMBRANE DEVELOPMENT FOR CARBON DIOXIDE CONVERSION TO SOLAR FUEL

    SBC: TWELVE BENEFIT CORPORATION            Topic: 19b

    Solar fuels production is necessary for the future of the global economy. To produce solar fuels from CO2, a highly conductive and stable polymer-electrolyte is needed for this demanding application. A promising class of polymer-electrolytes for electrochemical energy applications has been developed, and this project’s goal is to scale-up production, add quality controls, and reduce waste. The n ...

  4. Development of a superconducting RF flipper

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 08a

    A recent report by the Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee entitled “Challenges at the Frontiers of Matter and Energy” pointed to the need to better understand hierarchical and heterogeneous materials, often at the mesoscopic scale. Such structures can be studied by x-ray and neutron scattering techniques, but they do not generally yield narrow signals in momentum or energy space. The nat ...

  7. A Fast Neutron Source for Material Irradiation using a Superconducting Electron Linac

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 16d

    Next generation reactor R&D aims to produce safer, longer lasting and economically viable nuclear power plants. New designs rely on novel materials that are resistant to both corrosive environments and radiation damage. Testing these novel materials requires an intense fast neutron environment, commonly created with a nuclear reactor or a national laboratory scale accelerator such as the proposed ...

  8. Low Cost Alloys for Magnetocaloric Refrigeration

    SBC: GENERAL ENGINEERING & RESEARCH, L.L.C.            Topic: 12b

    Replacement of petroleum based vehicles with fuel cell electric vehicles operating on hydrogen produced from domestically available resources would dramatically decrease emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants as well as reduce dependence on oil from politically volatile regions of the world. One major inhibitor to a hydrogen society is the lack of infrastructure, which requires hydroge ...
