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. Robust RF Photocathodes

    SBC: CALABAZAS CREEK RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 33e

    Photocathodes are one of the most critical components in RF-based linacs and light source systems. Current photocathodes lack the capability to meet the long term requirements for medical, defense, industrial and many scientific systems. This program will develop a new generation of photocathodes that provide high performance and long life. Calabazas Creek Research Inc. (CCR), in collaboration wi ...

  2. Nano-Patterned Cathode Surfaces for High Efficiency Photoinjectors

    SBC: RADIABEAM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 05a

    Present day photoinjector cathodes have a poor lifetime or inadequate quantum efficiency for advanced applications. In addition, the efficiency is constrained by the frequency up- conversion in the drive laser from infrared to ultraviolet photons. Novel nanofabrication techniques allow for the sub-wavelength patterning of grooves and hole-array surfaces on the cathode. Exploiting the surface plas ...

  3. Practical Fiber Delivered Laser Ignition Systems for Vehicles

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 08b

    Improved ignition methods are needed for advanced vehicle combustion systems, in particular those that allow reliable ignition of lean mixtures in gasoline engines at elevated pressures. Laser ignition is a candidate technology having the potential to address these needs. However, despite more than 40 years of laser ignition research, the technology is not yet in commercial use. A critical proble ...

  4. Cavity Enhanced Thomson Scattering System for Low Temperature Plasmas

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 30a

    Electrons play a very key role in plasma chemistry and dynamics of low temperature plasmas. Improved capability for measuring electron number density, ne, and electron energy distribution function, EEDF, in weakly ionized low temperature plasmas would benefit both fundamental study and application areas. For example, the capability would directly benefit emerging research targeted at modifying and ...

  5. Novel Thermal Spray Lubricious Oxide Coatings

    SBC: DRS RESEARCH            Topic: 01b

    The extreme operating conditions experienced by many moving mechanical components in aerospace and automotive engines require the uses of high-performance materials and lubricants. Current oil-based lubricants degrade rapidly under such conditions and become useless, especially at high temperatures. As a result, many moving components of engines that are run at high temperatures to impro ...

  7. Compositionally Gradient Garnet/PVDF-HFP Hybrid Membranes for Li-Metal Batteries

    SBC: HAZEN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 19a

    Development of Li-ion conducting membranes capable of supporting Li-metal anode to enable high- performance Li-metal batteries (LiMB) is a priority for the Department of Energy (DOE). State-of- the-art membranes used for Li-ion batteries (LiB) are not suitable for LiMB and have a number of disadvantages including poor cycling performance, low Li-ion conductivity, and electrochemical stability with ...

  8. Recovery Act- High-Efficiency Membrane Regenerator for Liquid Desiccant Air Conditioning

    SBC: PAX SCIENTIFIC INC            Topic: 01a

    Low-Flow Liquid Desiccant Air Conditioning (LDAC) has the potential to dramatically lower the electricity used for commercial air conditioning by directly removing moisture from the air prior to cooling. But in order to achieve widespread market adoption, the mechanisms by which the liquid desiccant is regenerated must be made more energy efficient, reliable and cost-effective. Membrane technolo ...

  9. Development of Ceramic Scintillators for High Speed, Ultra-High Resolution X-Ray Imaging Detectors

    SBC: Xradia            Topic: 03a

    X-Ray microscopy offers rich internal information of objects under study due to the highly penetrative nature of x-rays. Significant improvements in laboratory x-ray sources, synchrotrons and detector technologies in the past few years have pushed the frontiers of spatial and time resolution enabling time-lapse imaging of structures in the micron scale. Xradia, a US based small business founded in ...
