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. Realtime, rapid detection of Illegal substances using hyperspectral and neuromorphic technologies

    SBC: QUANTUM VENTURA INC            Topic: DHS211009

    Improving detection of illegal threats and materials passing through US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Ports of Entry (POE) is sought by the DHS S&T. Concerns for both materials and persons at these border crossings limit the type of inspection tools that can be used safely. Although current systems are capable of screening vehicles and large freight containers and conveyances, maintaining an ...

  2. Rechargeable carbon-oxygen battery: A new class of ultra low-cost, lightweight energy storage technology

    SBC: NOON ENERGY INC            Topic: G

    Noon Energy has developed a new class of battery technology that will cost-effectively turn intermittent solar and wind electricity into on-demand power. It uses ultra-low-cost storage media and can match the energy efficiency of lithium-ion technology. It stores energy by splitting CO2 into solid carbon and oxygen in a flow battery configuration, utilizing abundant materials and simple reaction c ...

  3. Reduced-Order Modeling of Critical Communications Network Protect Surfaces

    SBC: TIAMI LLC            Topic: DHS231006

    Tiami LLC, a socially and economically disadvantaged small business located in a HUBZone, aims to develop a first-of-its-kind reduced-order modeling solution for data communications networks. We will develop a discrete-time linear time-invariant (LTI) state-space model for a general communications network. We will then apply projection methods such as proper orthogonal decomposition (POD) and bala ...

  4. Reliable Occupancy Sensor for Modified Straddle Carriers

    SBC: Linea Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Each year, over 14 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) of containers are transported into the U.S. from approximately 700 ports around the world. To facilitate the screening of containers, modified straddle carriers with plastic scintillators, neutron detectors, and NaI detectors (spectroscopic detectors) travels through rows of containers to perform radiation scanning. Portal monitors surv ...

  5. Remote Identity Proofing Methods and Analysis

    SBC: PreID Inc.            Topic: HSB0161010

    The Internet and mobile technologies has brought on a rapid transition from doing business "in-person" to remote. Knowing the identity of the individual at this other end of the wire is at the very foundation of trust and security of this new world. Traditional methods to prove identity, such as driver's licenses, were designed for "in-person" use, not the digital economy. Instead, the Internet ...

  6. Remote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: HSB0181002

    To address the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) need for a cell phone location finder for maritime and remote search and rescue (SAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new REmote Phone Locator for Improved Emergency Rescue (REPLIER). REPLIER leverages novel techniques recently developed at POC to extend the range of cellular communications and integrate commercial cellu ...

  7. Renewable electricity-powered carbon dioxide conversion to ethanol for storage and transportation

    SBC: TWELVE BENEFIT CORPORATION            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Cost-effective electrochemical reduction of CO2 (ECO2R) in the atmosphere, is the holy grail of green chemistry. Using only water and electricity as other inputs, ECO2R has been demonstrated to produce ethanol with pure oxygen as a co-product. Ethanol is a versatile fuel that can be used in fuel cells, reformed to make hydrogen, or burned in an internal combustion engine. Ethanol produced from air ...

  8. Resonant voltage regulator architecture eliminates 30-50% energy consumption of digital ICs

    SBC: Empower Semiconductor Incorporated            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Empower Semiconductor has developed a resonant integrated voltage regulator (IVR) technology that can dramatically improve the energy efficiency of any digital CMOS IC. As Moore’s law has advanced, the plexity and power needs of digital ICs has grown dramatically. The voltages required by these ICs have lowered and the resulting voltage accuracy needs have become more stringent. Existing voltage ...

  9. Responder Wireless Physiological Monitoring Device

    SBC: QUANTUM APPLIED SCIENCE & RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    The primary cause of mortality in firefighters is cardiovascular disease, which accounts for 45% of fatalities among personnel on duty. Although physiological monitoring devices have existed for decades, their use on subjects during strenuous activities (such as firefighting) has been significantly limited due to excessive signal artifacts and extremely low user compliance arising from the invasiv ...

  10. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...
