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. 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 ...

  2. MEMS based thermopile infrared detector array for chemical and biological sensing

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A10AT004

    Thermopile arrays manufactured using integrated process compatible materials and micro-machining will provide high performance with low manufacturing cost. Black Forest Engineering (BFE) teamed with Case Western Reserve University will design thermopiles using silicon based semiconductors and compare performance. Low cost thermopiles, differentially coupled with advanced BFE CMOS readout, will pr ...

  3. Metal Additive Manufacturing with Minimal Post Processing (MaMMPP) (18-RD-116)

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: A18BT003

    Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) research has typically addressed understanding how to maximize performance for an AM material, taking into account microstructural anisotropy, residual stress, defects (such as pores and lack of fusion defects), and surface finish. Optimizing a part then requires significant post processing such as hot isostatic pressing (HIP), heat treatment and surface finishing ...

  4. Metal-blacks for plasmonic enhancement of solar-cell efficiency

    SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation            Topic: AF09BT39

    This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...

  5. Metal Digital Direct Manufacturing (MDDM) for Close-Out of Combustion Chambers and Nozzle Fabrications

    SBC: Keystone Synergistic Enterprises, LLC            Topic: T12

    This NASA sponsored STTR project will investigate methods for close-out of large, liquid rocket engine, nickel or stainless steel nozzle, coolant channels utilizing robotic laser and pulsed-arc additive manufacturing (AM)methods. Structural jacket to coolant channel land area interface strength will be quantified and metallurgical characterization completed.Process optimizations will be conducted ...

  6. Metasurface Enhanced Solar Blind Ultraviolet Photodetector

    SBC: PHOEBUS OPTOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: A13AT002

    This project will develop plasmonic films that perform the dual functions of optical filtering and electrical conduction for solar-blind ultraviolet radiation (UV) detectors. Two types of plasmonic structures will be investigated, namely nano-hole arrays in an aluminum film atop UV radiation detecting semiconductors. These two similar plasmonic structures support different types of surface plasm ...

  7. Methane Harvesting for Seafloor Power Generation

    SBC: MARITIME APPLIED PHYSICS CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C005

    The US Navy, industry and the scientific community is using and developing a variety of AUVs, underwater sensors, and other systems that can be easily deployed and operated with minimal maintenance or recurring costs. A primary hindrance to the long-term implementation of these systems is the availability of in situ energy. The concepts presented herein focus on the harvesting of methane from seep ...

  8. Micro Air Vehicle Tether Recovery Apparatus (MAVTRAP)

    SBC: INNOVATIVE AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF08T014

    Our team proposes to develop, test, and commercialize a Micro Air Vehicle Tether Recovery APparatus (MAVTRAP). This system operates by deploying an instrumented MAV capture device attached via a tether system from a mothership unmanned air vehicle (UAV). The instrumented MAV capture device contains an integrated avionics suite. Our team will determine and control the precise mother ship UAV loi ...

  9. Miniature, Portable, Device to Detect and Monitor Coagulopathy

    SBC: Enterprise Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N10AT043

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a new thromboelastograph (TEG)-like instrument that has the same basic capabilities as the TEG – that is to say, capabilities of monitoring in vitro the kinetics, strength, and stability of clot formation in blood samples that are clot induced – but which is miniaturized, highly portable, rugged, and insensitive to adverse env ...
