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. Fuel Efficient Nanofluid Gear Oil

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: A15AT018

    Pixelligent, teamed with the Tribology Group at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn), proposes a 6 months, $150K STTR Phase I project to demonstrate a proof-of-concept for a fuel-efficient nano-fluid gear oil based on Pixelligents advanced nano-additives. If successful, this will pave the way to develop innovative lubricants for gear boxes that can improve f ...

  2. Fuel Efficient Nanofluid Gear Oil

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: A15AT018

    Improving vehicle fuel efficiency for the military can significantly reduce costs and reduce risk to solider safety. One way to improve vehicle efficiency for new and legacy vehicles is to reduce frictional loses in the drivetrain through use of lower viscosity lubricants. However, this comes with the risk of reducing durability of drivetrain components through increased wear, pitting and scuffing ...

  3. High Dynamic Range Heterodyne Terahertz Imager

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: A17AT007

    The Tunable Active HEterodyne Terahertz Imager (TAHETI) system will use Terahertz Quantum-Cascade Lasers (QCL) combined with a Schottky diode detector for ultra-high dynamic range heterodyne imaging. Distributed feedback (DFB) QCLs with milliwatt power levels are engineered to emit at slightly offset frequencies, and are used as local oscillator and illumination for imaging. The QCLs will be down ...

  4. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Eureka Aerospace            Topic: A14AT004

    This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. The proposal constitutes a logical continuation of Phase I effort where the main focus was on the detailed design of the PCSS/laser diode array (LDA) integrated architecture. In Phase II ...

  5. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: NESS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: A14AT004

    The objective of this Phase II proposal is to continue the development of a Photoconductive Semiconductor Switch (PCSS) with an integrated optical trigger that can switch at least 30 kV, 1 kA, 20 ns pulses with jitter 108 shots. Ness Engineering, Inc. (NEI) and Texas Tech University (TTU) propose to utilize wide bandgap materials to demonstrate lock-on switching and allow much less optical trigger ...

  6. Hybrid Battery/Supercapacitor Energy Storage Device

    SBC: ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A15AT010

    ADA, in collaboration with USC, proposes the development of a high energy hybrid battery/supercapacitor to replace multiple heterogeneous energy storage devices currently used by the Army soldier. The hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) will be developed incorporating ADAs high energy supercapacitor and a commercial-off-the-shelf high energy Li-ion battery through an externally paralle ...

  7. Hybrid Battery/Supercapacitor Energy Storage Device

    SBC: ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A15AT010

    ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA) and Dr. Massoud Pedram at the University of Southern California (USC) have successfully completed a Phase I STTR effort for the development of a lithium ion (Li-ion)/ supercapacitor hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) to afford pulse power characteristics (projected ~10 kW/kg) in a high energy system (100-150 Wh/kg). The system is enabled via a constant cur ...

  8. Identification of Multiple Illicit Drugs Using a Handheld Detector Based on Chemiresitive Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16AT008

    Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. Novel sensing materials, with enhanced chemical sensit ...

  9. Improved Flotation Separation of Rare Earth Ore

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: OSD12T01

    A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...

  10. Industrial Production Methods for Ultra-High-Strength Fibers based on Double-Walled Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A12AT026

    This project will complete development of a viable, cost-effective industrial production technique for producing ultrastrong, flexible and tough carbon fibers composed of double-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs) and of a small amount of a polymer, based on a continuous manufacturing process. This will be done by refining MERs innovative technology for the efficient continuous production of unique fo ...
