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. Lasers Based on Gas or Liquid Filled Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibers

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18BT015

    We propose a compact, monolithic, power scalable, hollow core fiber-gas laser emitting in the atmospheric transmission region in the mid-IR. The proposed optically pumped fiber-gas laser system is efficient, has a small footprint as well has a broad spectral coverage in the mid-IR. Due to the unique approach employed, the proposed technology allows generation of mid-IR output with varying pulse re ...

  10. Real-Time Stress Biomarker Sensor

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: AF18CT001

    Research is currently identifying new biochemical markers to help monitor cognition and stress in the human body and enhance human performance. Traditional biometric markers like heart rate, temperature, oxygen partial pressure, blood glucose, electrolyte concentration, and others have been correlated with cognition and stress states. However, the correlation is indirect. Molecular biomarkers with ...
