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. Novel Ceramic Membranes for Efficient Hydrogen Recovery

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT AND TRANSFER, INC.            Topic: 26a

    The conversion of carbon-containing feedstocks to hydrogen and syngas will play important roles in the 21st century in the form of large plants for converting natural gas to liquids, hydrocarbons to chemicals, biomass to fuels and chemicals, and small units for powering fuel cells. Advancements in hydrogen membrane separation technologies have the potential to reduce costs, improve efficiency, and ...

  2. Membrane Materials with Improved Properties

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: 10a

    Currently the commercially available technologies for H2 separation such as pressure swing adsorption and cryogenic distillation are very energy intensive. Membrane technologies can be very energy efficient; but for high selective membranes low flux and high cost are the major challenges that frustrate commercialization. Recently, cermet has shown promise because of less precious metal usage and m ...

  3. 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

  4. Recovery Act- Hybrid Building Integrated Solar Energy System for Photovoltaic, Thermoelectric, and Heat Utilization

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: 08a

    Conventional photovoltaic technologies have been able to achieve limited market penetration due to high first costs and reductions in efficiency caused by the high operating temperatures at which the panels are typically employed. Traditional solar panels are also configured as mounted equipment, separate from the building envelop elements. The use of unaugmented PV power generating technology l ...

  5. STTR Phase I: Cost Effective Core-Shell Nanocatalysts for PEM Fuel Cells

    SBC: BETTERGY CORP.            Topic: MM

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cells as a power source for automobiles and stationary or portable power applications. Currently, the high cost of the PEM fuel cell limits their commercial applications. A significant cost of a PEM fuel cell comes from the use of Platinum. This project intends to develop a low cost core shell nanostructured catalyst whic ...

  6. Wide Bandgap Nanostructured Space Photovoltaics

    SBC: Firefly Technologies            Topic: T3

    Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes an STTR program for the development of a wide-bandgap GaP-based space solar cell capable of efficient operation at temperatures above 300oC. Efficiency enhancement will be achieved by the introduction of InGaP quantum wells within the active region of the wide-gap base material. The introduction of these nanoscale features ...

  7. Nanowire Photovoltaic Devices

    SBC: Firefly Technologies            Topic: T3

    Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes an STTR program for the development of a space solar cell having record efficiency exceeding 40% (AM0) by the introduction of nanowires within the active region of the current limiting sub-cell. The introduction of these nanoscale features will enable realization of an intermediate band solar cell (IBSC), while simultaneous ...

  8. Advanced Membrane Technology for Helium Recover

    SBC: HELIOS-NRG LLC            Topic: 10d

    This Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Phase 1 project will lead to the development of a simple, cost effective technology which can recover helium from gas reservoirs containing helium concentrations too low to permit economic recovery at present. This will enable helium recovery from fields currently producing natural gas but considered uneconomical for the recovery of the contained heli ...
