The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Brain Targeting Nanoparticle for Drug Delivery in Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: WEINBERG MEDICAL PHYSICS, INC.            Topic: DHA18A001

    There is an urgent need to bypass or cross the blood brain barrier (BBB) to deliver drugs for TBI treatment. This project aims to develop targted intranasally delivered, magnetically propulsed, and targted nanoparticles for traumatic brain injury (TBI). In Phase I, we will demonstrate the design, fabrication, and in vitro characterization of proposed drug laden magnetic nanoparticles as well as co ...

  2. Laser Cladding Applied to the Construction of PFCs with Integral Tritium Diffusion Barriers

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 27b

    Selection of the Plasma-Facing Component (PFC) material composition is a primary consideration in future fusion reactor design. The PFC materials must not only withstand the harsh operating conditions of the reactor, but the amount of tritium uptake experienced by the PFC during operation is a significant factor. Proper operation, safety and environmental impact mandate that t ...

  3. High Efficiency Thin Film Thermoelectric Generators (HiE TFTEGs) for Vehicles

    SBC: Sheetak Inc.            Topic: 06f

    A significant portion of the waste heat from engine exhaust can be recovered using thermoelectric generators to achieve up to 10% gain in automotive mileage. There have been several efforts underway on this front but most have focused on demonstrating thermoelectric generators using bulk materials that consume significant amount of raw materials and are prone to failures due to thermal expansion, ...

  4. Rotating Liner Engine: Improving Efficiency of Heavy Duty Diesels by Significant Friction Reduction, and Extending The Life of Heavy Duty Engines.

    SBC: ROTATING SLEEVE ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 06h

    The ultimate goal of the project is to demonstrate that the rotating liner engine (RLE) can increase fuel efficiency in heavy duty vehicles by about 3.5-4% at full load, about 25% at idle, and about 10% for an average duty cycle, can reduce CO2, NOx and PM and reduce engine wear. Design already completed. The face seal is the only technical challenge of the concept, and the main design features pe ...

  5. 100 Gbps Radiation Tolerant Optical Transceiver

    SBC: PHOTON SCIENCES, INCORPORATED            Topic: 27d

    High-radiation environments such as the Large Hadron Collider, (LHC) need components which are rad hard to a level of hundreds of Mrad. In addition, because the LHC will receive a high luminosity (HL) upgrade, the data produced will need to be transmitted at the rate of 10’s to 100’s of Tbps. In addition, the solution needs to be low mass. This will be accomplished using an array-able rad hard ...

  6. A Wireline-Deployed Tool for Monitoring Fluid Flow within an EGS Borehole

    SBC: Fluidtracer, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    Critical to determining the success of an EGS well is the measurement of the flow distribution along the open-hole length of that well. Knowledge of not only the depth but the spacing of intersected fractures is required in order to determine the sweep efficiency of fluids flowing through the reservoir. Currently, the only device available for measuring fluid flow within a geothermal wellbore is t ...

  7. Synthesis of a Potential Fast Ionic Conductor for Mg+ Ions

    SBC: POWDERMET INC            Topic: 15b

    Development of a solid with high conductivity of Mg2+ cations will allow application of that substance as membrane in magnesium-air batteries. These batteries will be much cheaper, safer, and at the same time store much more energy than lead-, lithium- or sodium batteries with the same weight. Such batteries would be ideal for electric vehicles and for the off-peak storage of renewable elect ...

  8. Virtual Accelerator Support for HPC Clouds

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 02a

    Due to huge levels of computing parallelism and higher performance per watt, comuting accelerators are crucial for increasing HPC efficiency. This is economically significant for small and medium size manufacturing companies (SMMs) and essential for transition to Exascale computing. However, due to high procurement costs, in-house maintenance of an accelerated HPC cluster is prohibitive for many ...

  9. Carbon Nanotube-based Solar Water Heater

    SBC: SOLARNO INC            Topic: 03e

    Solar water heaters are a well-established renewable energy technology that has been widely adopted outside of the United States. Here we propose to significantly improve the evacuated solar tube collectors (ETC) by utilizing the dry-drawable carbon nanotube (CNT) sheets for solar energy absorption and CNT multifunctional nanocomposites with functional layers of heat accumulators and heat transpo ...

  10. Permanent Magnet (PM) Induction Heater for Paraffin Abatement

    SBC: AUSTIN GEOTECH SERVICES INC            Topic: 20b

    One of the major maintenance headaches causing increased operational cost in the production of mature oil wells is the elimination of wax and paraffin buildup in the production tubing. The accumulation over time of paraffin compounds in "cold spots" in the tubing creates high pressures and flow constrictions that contribute to accelerated pump wear, and constrict the flow of fluids to the surface. ...
