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. 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 ...

  2. Novel Ceramic Membranes for Efficient Hydrogen Recovery

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT AND TRANSFER, INC.            Topic: 26a

    The conversion of carbon-containing feedstocks to hydrogen and syngas will play important roles in the 21st century in the form of large plants for converting natural gas to liquids, hydrocarbons to chemicals, biomass to fuels and chemicals, and small units for powering fuel cells. Advancements in hydrogen membrane separation technologies have the potential to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and ...

  3. Membrane Materials with Improved Properties

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: 10a

    Currently the commercially available technologies for H2 separation such as pressure swing adsorption and cryogenic distillation are very energy intensive. Membrane technologies can be very energy efficient; but for high selective membranes low flux and high cost are the major challenges that frustrate commercialization. Recently, cermet has shown promise because of less precious metal usage and m ...

  4. High Temperature Unique Low Thermal Conductivity Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) Architectures

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: 27c

    Higher operating temperature for the gas turbine engine is needed for enhanced efficiency, lower emission and increased performance goal. The current state-of-the-art thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are not adequate to provide the needed protection for the metallic components of the turbine engine operating at higher TBC surface temperature (>1300

  5. High-Reliability Cements for Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    SBC: HIFUNDA LLC            Topic: 04b

    The nation is currently faced with the significant challenge of developing alternative sources of energy to meet our growing energy needs in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner, while reducing carbon emissions. For a significant population of the western United States and the world that live near geothermal resources that may be exploited by enhanced geothermal systems (EGS), the ...

  6. Rotating Liner Engine: Improving Efficiency of Heavy Duty Diesels by Significant Friction Reduction, and Extending The Life of Heavy Duty Engines.

    SBC: ROTATING SLEEVE ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 06h

    The ultimate goal of the project is to demonstrate that the rotating liner engine (RLE) can increase fuel efficiency in heavy duty vehicles by about 3.5-4% at full load, about 25% at idle, and about 10% for an average duty cycle, can reduce CO2, NOx and PM and reduce engine wear. Design already completed. The face seal is the only technical challenge of the concept, and the main design features pe ...

  7. Automated Cache Performance Analysis and Optimization in Open|SpeedShop

    SBC: ARGO NAVIS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 02b

    While there is no lack of performance counter tools for coarse-grained measurement of cache activity, there is a critical lack of tools for relating data layout to cache behavior to application performance. Generally, any nontrivial optimizations are either not done at all, or are done by hand requiring significant time and expertise. To the best of our knowledge no tool available to users measure ...

  8. Laser Cladding Applied to the Construction of PFCs with Integral Tritium Diffusion Barriers

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 27b

    Selection of the Plasma-Facing Component (PFC) material composition is a primary consideration in future fusion reactor design. The PFC materials must not only withstand the harsh operating conditions of the reactor, but the amount of tritium uptake experienced by the PFC during operation is a significant factor. Proper operation, safety and environmental impact mandate that t ...

  9. Synthesis of a Potential Fast Ionic Conductor for Mg+ Ions

    SBC: POWDERMET INC            Topic: 15b

    Development of a solid with high conductivity of Mg2+ cations will allow application of that substance as membrane in magnesium-air batteries. These batteries will be much cheaper, safer, and at the same time store much more energy than lead-, lithium- or sodium batteries with the same weight. Such batteries would be ideal for electric vehicles and for the off-peak storage of renewable elect ...

  10. Virtual Accelerator Support for HPC Clouds

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 02a

    Due to huge levels of computing parallelism and higher performance per watt, comuting accelerators are crucial for increasing HPC efficiency. This is economically significant for small and medium size manufacturing companies (SMMs) and essential for transition to Exascale computing. However, due to high procurement costs, in-house maintenance of an accelerated HPC cluster is prohibitive for many ...
