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. Co-Generation of Low-Energy, CO2-Free Hydrogen and Ordinary Portland Cement from Ca-Rich Rocks

    SBC: Finke, Cody            Topic: G

    We are building a technology that produces low cost hydrogen while releasing low or no carbon dioxide emissions. Key to our affordable hydrogen is the co-generation of valuable co-products like: Sulfuric Acid or Cement. Our processes are lower emission, lower energy and lower cost than conventional production method. We validated a proof-of-concept in our lab in May 2019 and our objective is to de ...

  3. Space Division Multiplexing with Multi-Core Fiber for Energy Efficient Integrated Photonic Networking Technologies

    SBC: ULTRA-LOW LOSS TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: G

    The trend for short-reach optical fiber communications, those used for data centers and HPC, has been to use simple and power-efficient approaches to scale bandwidth. Approaches include parallel single mode (ex. more fibers), multi-level modulation coupled with direct detection (ex. four-level pulse amplitude modulation or PAM-4), and wide channel spacing (i.e. coarse WDM or CWDM). Bandwidth and c ...

  6. A Multi-Branch Network for Automated VNIIRS Assessment of Motion Imagery

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: NGA191003

    Due to the lack of consistency in existing automated methods for assigning VNIIRS levels to motion imagery, and the overwhelming human resources required to manually assign levels, a new method of automated/semi-automated VNIIRS assessment is needed. In recent years, advancements in deep learning have provided solutions to previously intractable computer vision problems. In many cases, automated d ...

  8. DroN2O: A Drone-Based System for Measuring Nitrous Oxide Emissions from Agricultural Fields

    SBC: MICHIGAN AEROSPACE CORP            Topic: 1

    Michigan Aerospace Corporation proposes to develop an inexpensive system to sense nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions from agricultural fields using laser-based sensors mounted on drones. These sensors include an optical absorption cell, a wind sensor, and a camera for plant health and ground assessment. The measurements from these sensors will be combined and processed with artificial-intelligence-enab ...
