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. Metasurface Enhanced Solar Blind Ultraviolet Photodetector

    SBC: PHOEBUS OPTOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: A13AT002

    This project will develop plasmonic films that perform the dual functions of optical filtering and electrical conduction for solar-blind ultraviolet radiation (UV) detectors. Two types of plasmonic structures will be investigated, namely nano-hole arrays in an aluminum film atop UV radiation detecting semiconductors. These two similar plasmonic structures support different types of surface plasm ...

  2. Metal-blacks for plasmonic enhancement of solar-cell efficiency

    SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation            Topic: AF09BT39

    This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...

  3. Metal Additive Manufacturing with Minimal Post Processing (MaMMPP) (18-RD-116)

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: A18BT003

    Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) research has typically addressed understanding how to maximize performance for an AM material, taking into account microstructural anisotropy, residual stress, defects (such as pores and lack of fusion defects), and surface finish. Optimizing a part then requires significant post processing such as hot isostatic pressing (HIP), heat treatment and surface finishing ...

  4. Meso-scale Framework for Simulating the Response of Structural Reactive Materials to Shock Loading

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS, INC.            Topic: AF16AT23

    Structural reactive materials (SRMs) or multifunctional energetic materials offer the ability to combine the high energy release rates of traditional high explosives with structural strength.When successfully formulated they can lead to light-weight, high-performance and hitherto inaccessible designs of munitions. The key feature of structural energetic materials (SEMs), perhaps even more so than ...

  5. MEMS based thermopile infrared detector array for chemical and biological sensing

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A10AT004

    Thermopile arrays manufactured using integrated process compatible materials and micro-machining will provide high performance with low manufacturing cost. Black Forest Engineering (BFE) teamed with Case Western Reserve University will design thermopiles using silicon based semiconductors and compare performance. Low cost thermopiles, differentially coupled with advanced BFE CMOS readout, will pr ...

  6. Membraneless Water Purification via Continuous, Self-Contained, Vacuum-Assisted Diffusiophoresis

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: A18BT005

    We propose the development of a membraneless water purification system using continuous, self-contained, vacuum-assisted diffusiophoresis. Using diffusiophoresis allows the system to clean water contaminated with particulates and bacteria without membranes or filters, while producing a stream of fresh, drinkable water. The system will operate using only electricity supplied by portable batteries/s ...

  7. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Grounding System

    SBC: CONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N16AT012

    During the Phase 1 effort, there were several achievements toward the design of grounding systems for MVDC architectures. For one, the common-mode equivalent circuit (CMEC) modeling approach that was derived at Purdue under ESRDC funding, was validated in a reduced-scale hardware setup at Purdue. The system studied consisted of a single generator, active rectifier, inverter, and propulsion machine ...

  8. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Fault Detection, Localization, and Isolation

    SBC: ISSAC Corp            Topic: N16AT009

    During the Phase II effort, the ISSAC Team will investigate several objectives and questions posed in Phase I efforts, in order to best develop a draft specification for NGES MVDC DLI systems. This includes exploring notional and conceptual architectures and discerning thresholds for DLI parameters; exploring individual and hybrid protection plan technologies to drive performance requirements for ...

  9. Mechanical Property Characterization and Modeling for Structural Mo-Si-B Alloys for High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Imaging Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N13AT012

    Under this STTR, Imaging Systems Technology (IST) in cooperation with Georgia Institute Technology (GIT) will develop and mature models to predict mechanical properties of refractory alloys with an eye toward tailoring these alloys for specific applications. In particular, this research will focus on addressing core aspects of Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) as it applies to ...

  10. Mechanical Property Characterization and Modeling for Structural Mo-Si-B Alloys for High Temperature Applications

    SBC: Deep Springs Technology            Topic: N13AT012

    The objective of the work described in this proposal is to aid in the advancement of Mo-Si-B alloys for use in high temperature applications such as hot gas stream components in turbine engines. Such alloys are being characterized for their monotonic tensile properties in tension and compression as well for their creep resistance. Likewise, multiphase Mo-Si-B alloys have been studied in terms of m ...
