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. Multi-vehicle Collaboration with Minimal Communications and Minimal Energy

    SBC: ORBIT LOGIC INCORPORATED            Topic: N17AT029

    Orbit Logic,the University of Colorado, and the University of California are developing a hierarchical autonomous mission planning and response capability for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) to address the challenges associated with long duration operations. The research is innovating approaches to the exchange of information between collaborating vehicles enabling onboard decision-making to ...

  2. No Power Bionic Lower Extremity Prostheses

    SBC: LIBERATING TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: DHP16C007

    Current prosthetic feet produce much less peak mechanical power than the able-bodied foot/ankle and release only about half of the mechanical energy generated during gait. This leads to higher energy expenditure among amputees as compared to able-bodied i

  3. Novel Biomass Conversion Process for Production of Butylenes

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N10BT047

    The United States is currently faced with unprecedented energy challenge. Petroleum prices have skyrocketed due to rising competition for energy resources from emerging economies. There is a significant need for processes that can produce hydrocarbons from renewable resources rather than petroleum. The use of renewable resources ensures a long-term supply of hydrocarbons, even after easily extract ...

  4. Novel Development of an Intelligent Quench Detection (QD) Method for HTS Coils

    SBC: TAI-YANG RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N19AT016

    Energy to Power Solutions (e2P) has teamed with quench detection (QD) expert Dr. Yuri Lvovsky (retired GE), Dr. Sastry Pamidi of the Center for Advanced Power Systems (FSU-CAPS), and American Superconductor Corporation (AMSC) to design, fabricate, and test a robust, reliable, and low cost QD system. e2P’s proposed system is a vastly different quench avoidance system that will provide multiple le ...

  5. Novel Electrolytic Extraction Processes for Scarce Elements

    SBC: INFINIUM, INC.            Topic: OSD12T03

    Metal Oxygen Separation Technologies, Inc. proposes a 6-month SBIR Phase I project to demonstrate feasibility of using molten salt electrolysis with a zirconia solid electrolyte to cleanly and efficiently produce dysprosium metal from its oxide. This Phase I project will have as its goal the design of a molten salt-zirconia-anode system in the context of an electrolysis cell for producing high-pu ...

  6. Novel management of transducer heat and nonlinearity

    SBC: FERRO SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N08T020

    Ferro Solutions has demonstrated in Phase I that ferro fluids can be used to create a self-pumping cooling system that can extend the life and improve performance of highpower transducers or other electro-mechanical devices. In the Phase I demonstration a resistor submerged in a ferrofluid was powered so that its temperature increased to over 1200C. Upon introduction of the appropriate magnetic fi ...

  7. Novel Primary Processing of Scarce Element Ores

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: OSD12T02

    The rare-earth elements (REEs) find uses in many high tech military applications, including night vision goggles, laser range finders, precision guided weapons, and stealth technology. Their high costs (up to $6800/lb. Scandium) are due to low concentration in ores and high cost of separation. Fourteen of the REEs are listed in a single box in the periodic table, meaning they all have almost iden ...

  8. Ocean Surface Vector Winds (OSVW)

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & SPACE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: N16BT026

    Ocean surface winds are critically important in naval operations. They may aid, hinder, or negate maneuvers and operations, and are a primary consideration in routing ships. Continuous and reliable information on favorable and unfavorable sea state is critical for a broad range of naval missions, including strategic ship movement and positioning, aircraft carrier operations, aircraft deployment, e ...

  9. Optical External and Intrinsic Fiber Cooler for GaN Microwave Amplifier

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N10AT017

    In this STTR program, Photonic Systems Inc. and Prof. Jacob Khurgin at Johns Hopkins University propose novel optical external and internal fiber cooling approaches to efficiently cool the high power GaN microwave amplifier. The external cooler is a single end, square-shape, Yb:ZLAN fiber with high reflection (HR) coated surface which can attach to the amplifier surface and create a cold spot at t ...

  10. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: METAMAGNETICS INC            Topic: N19AT001

    HPM (high power microwave) weapons could disable vehicles, enable vehicle recovery, and reduce collateral damage. Metamagnetics, in partnership with Professor Jane Lehr (University of New Mexico), and General Atomics propose a completely solid-state HPM system based on their work in Gyromagnetic Nonlinear Transmission Lines (gNLTL) and compact High-Gain Slotted Waveguide Antennas. The system will ...
