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. An Enhanced: Lower Power, Higher Efficiency, Concentrator Design

    SBC: Digital Flow Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Two primary efforts define the DFTI (Digital Flow Technologies, Inc.) response to the HSARPA requirements to develop a lower cost, more efficient, high (1000 liters/min) volume flow rate concentrator that requires lower power than the extant concentrator designs. The first of these is to create an operational ¿¿pre-concentrator¿¿ that will deliver a jet flow of air-plus-particles with ...

  2. A New Method for Sample Preparation Directly in Aerosols

    SBC: Chembionics, Inc.            Topic: HSB051001

    Rapid detection of pathogens in air and/or liquid samples is of paramount importance to minimize a potential threat of biological warfare agent attack as well appearance of emerging infectious diseases. Current methods, particularly those that target aerosols are determined by the efficiency and speed of sample preparation which comprises collection of air sample its conversion into a liquid sampl ...

  3. A Novel Sensor for Concealed Object Detection

    SBC: WaveBand Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Building on previous and ongoing research in concealed object detection (COD), WaveBand Corporation (WaveBand) proposes a novel approach specifically aimed at extended range of detection with a goal of up to 50 meters. Among various sensors tested and proposed to date, those working in the millimeter wave (MMW) spectral region have been proven to have the unique characteristics of providing adequa ...

  4. An ultra-low cost miniature X-band linac to replace radionuclide gamma sources

    SBC: RADIABEAM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N/A

    One of the objectives of the DNDO is to dramatically reduce the amount of radioactive material in use in order to improve public security and prevent the diversion of radioactive material for Radiation Dispersion Devices (so-called "dirty bombs"). RadiaBeam Technologies proposes the development of an inexpensive, handportable accelerator to replace radionuclide radiography devices. The accelerator ...

  5. An Ultra-Low Power Handheld Device for Analysis of the Post-Fire Environment

    SBC: KWJ ENGINEERING INC            Topic: HSB0142006

    KWJ proposes to develop an ultra-low power and low cost, handheld device for monitoring of post-fire air quality, including DHS target toxic gases, combustion gases, CO2, LEL and particular matter (PM). The proposed device will significantly improve the current air monitoring instrumentation of protecting fire responders from hazard post-fire environment. Current multi-gas analyzers are not suitab ...

  6. An Underwater Threat Detection System Employing Low-Cost Sensing and Advanced Algorithms

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: HSB051004

    A vast array of high-value installations are situated within or near waterways. With such a large number of vulnerable targets, current threat detection schemes are too costly to provide sufficient levels of protection. At the same time, with 95% of material goods arriving via ports and waterways, any new system must offer sufficient performance to prove effective in such an active environment. A ...

  7. A Rapid-to-Deploy Agent-Based Wireless Sensing Architecture for Autonomous Structural Collapse Prediction

    SBC: CIVIONICS, LLC            Topic: HSB0132004

    While most media attention in the wake of a terrorist attack, a natural disaster, or even a single building fire focuses rightly on the safety and wellbeing of the general public, one often overlooked aspect of these catastrophic events is the extreme risk taken by first responders who enter structures on the verge of collapse. For example, after the attacks on the World Trade Center on September ...

  8. Associated Particle Imaging Shipboard Inspection System

    SBC: DYNAMICS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Dynamics Technology, Inc. (DTI) will develop a man-portable shipboard inspection system based on Associated Particle Imaging (API) technology, which can provide through-wall imaging behind bulkheads and within containers, along with automated threat material identification. The system builds on a decade of research by DTI and its partners, encompassing explosives identification, current government ...

  9. A stable, low cost, low power CO2 sensor for demand controlled ventilation

    SBC: MATRIX SENSORS INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001738

    "We propose to develop a stable, low-cost, low power CO2 sensor module that meets the requirements of the ARPA-E SENSORS FOA, namely, 30 ppm precision over a dynamic range of 400 ppm to 2000 ppm with 10 ppm drift per year. Existing optical non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 sensors simply cannot scale to the cost and power requirements of the FOA. We therefore propose a solid state architecture ...

  10. A transformative low cost approach for Direct Air Mineralization of CO2 via repeated cycles of ambient weathering of metal oxides

    SBC: EQUIOPPS, INC            Topic: T

    Increasing concentration of CO 2 in the atmosphere poses a threat to the global climate. One promising method for reducing atmospheric CO 2 is a repeated enhanced weathering process. Enhanced weathering is a process where a natural reaction between CO 2 gas and minerals rich in magnesium and/or calcium is accelerated to quickly form a solid carbonate. The cycle can be repeated by separating the CO ...
