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. Nanofiber LIBS for Nanoparticle Composition

    SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC.            Topic: A04T011

    The pervasiveness of nanoparticles and nanomaterials is rapidly expanding, and determination of their chemical composition can be achieved by Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) excited through an optical fiber of nanometer dimensions. We propose to develop a LIBS system for nanomaterials based upon recently demonstrated nanometer silica wires [Nature, Dec 2003] for excitation and an ultr ...

  2. Tunable Terahertz-Frequency Lasers Based on Semiconductor Nanocrystals

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: A04T015

    ALTAIR Center proposes to develop a new class of tunable terahertz laser sources based on an active laser material fabricated from spherical semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots) incorporated into an optical medium transparent in terahertz-frequency range. Due to the strong Stark effect, recently discovered in semiconductor nanocrystals, the transition frequencies can be shifted by an applied ...

  3. Nanoscale Chemical Analysis using Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (nano-LIBS)

    SBC: APPLIED SPECTRA INC            Topic: A04T011

    As nanotechnology fabrication develops internationally, the availability of tools for ensuring that materials and systems abide by their chemical design characteristics becomes essential. In order for nanotechnology to mature, diagnostic instruments must be developed to detect and analyze physical and chemical properties with spatial resolution much less than the dimensions of the nanostructures ( ...

  4. Nanocomposites with Independently Controlled Properties of the Thermoelectric Material for High Figure of Merit

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: A04T007

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop advanced nanocomposite materials to achieve high thermoelectric figure of merit by incorporating nanoparticles with high Seebeck coefficients within a high surface area semiconducting matrix with extremely low thermal conductivity and high electrical conductivity. In the proposed nanocomposite structure, we will achieve the high hot charge carrier generation effi ...

  5. Biologically Inspired Acoustic Source Localization System

    SBC: Ausim, Inc.            Topic: A04T013

    Situational awareness is a critical factor for the soldier in the field. An acoustic source localization system can greatly benefit the soldier by detecting threat and displaying its location. The goal of this proposal is to study a promising algorithm based on a biologically inspired technology and verify its ability to perform in various environments and with multiple sources. The proposed ...

  6. Quantum Dot Microcavity Terahertz Laser

    SBC: CBL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A04T015

    CBL Technologies and Stanford University propose to develop and characterize a unique quantum dot microdisk source for high-power laser operation in the low terahertz frequency regime. The source will be used in military applications such as chemical and biological sensing, imaging and communications, as well as emerging commercial applications in medicine and biology. The source contains two co ...

  7. Nanostructured Thermoelectric Composites

    SBC: Nanolab, Inc            Topic: A04T007

    Advances in thermoelectric materials are needed to broaden the application areas for these materials. Specifically, the figure of merit (ZT) for thermoelectrics must be increased. Some recent demonstrations show that nanoscale structures are the key to obtaining high ZT (>2). However, these superlattice structures are created one layer at a time, in expensive processes. In the Phase I effort, Nan ...

  8. A Novel Bio-Applique for Corrosion Protection

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: A04T003

    Traditional coatings used by the military to camouflage and protect aluminum alloys contain organic solvents (VOCs) and toxic metal corrosion inhibitors (chromates). Gases emitted during application and wastes generated when stripping the metal for recoating create hazardous working conditions and pollute the environment. Appliqués (thin film fluoropolymers with a pressure sensitive adhesive) pr ...

  9. Metal Organic Framework Adsorbents for Fuel-Cell Relevant Small Molecules

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: A04T004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to utilize 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional Metal Organic Framework (MOF) structures for the selective adsorption of small contaminant molecules from a hydrogen feed stream. These contaminants include carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and ammonia. Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells (PEM-FC), which are typically fueled by hydrogen, can suffer catalyst poisonin ...

  10. Smooth, Piecewise-Polynomial Terrain Representation Using Nontraditional Metrics

    SBC: Schafer Corporation            Topic: A04T016

    Current methods for representing terrain data utilize standard metrics (least squares or maximum deviation) to generate an approximation of terrain surfaces. These methods typically represent the data through a piecewise linear (polygonal) surface which fails to capture the smoothness of the data and thereby creates undesirable artifacts. The result is a poor representation of the actual surface w ...
