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. High Temperature Unique Low Thermal Conductivity Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) Architectures

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: 27c

    Higher operating temperature for the gas turbine engine is needed for enhanced efficiency, lower emission and increased performance goal. The current state-of-the-art thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are not adequate to provide the needed protection for the metallic components of the turbine engine operating at higher TBC surface temperature (>1300

  3. Recovery Act- Performance Monitoring and Actionable Alert Messaging for Building Integrated Photovoltaics

    SBC: Wattminder            Topic: 07c

    Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) systems present significant challenges with respect to optimal energy efficiency of Photovoltaic (PV) arrays. In these systems, the PV panels replace roof tops, and other building components such as windows. Due to their diverse locations and orientations, influence of numerous environmental factors can significantly reduce the performance and overall eff ...

  4. Accelerating Metagenomics Using Graphics Processing Units

    SBC: Multicoreware, Inc.            Topic: 35a

    A key application of the technological breakthrough associated with decreased cost of DNA sequencing is metagenomics. Metagenomics is the process of sequencing DNA from whole ecosystems, rather than individuals or cultures. This approach has the potential to allow the dissection of microbial ecosystems in biofuel producing agricultural land, toxic contaminated sites and hydrocarbon recovery enviro ...

  5. Verification of CO2 Storage in Coal Beds

    SBC: Algorithmica Llc            Topic: 24b

    The injection and storage of captured CO2 in coal beds has been suggested as a strategy to reduce industrial emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere. The sequestration process involves the adsorption by coal of injected CO2 and an associated desorption of CH4 whose production can partially offset the operational cost. The acceptance of this strategy depends on: the ability to effectively monitor the ...

  6. 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 ...

  8. Novel Module Architecture Development for Increased Reliability and Reduced Costs

    SBC: Creative Light Source, Inc            Topic: 07a

    Statement of Problem: The US DOE has set a goal to advance photovoltaics (PV) technology to reach installed costs of less than $1/Watt. This requires module costs below $0.50/ Watt. Thin film PV provides the lowest documented production cost per watt ($0.67) of any PV technology. Module reliability has a direct impact on the levalized cost of energy (LCOE), or the cost of the energy produced by ...

  9. 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 ...
