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. DESIGN OF SMART MICRO-FLARE FLEET TO MITIGATE DISTRIBUTED METHANE EMISSIONS

    SBC: Frost Methane Labs Co.            Topic: T

    Methane emissions are responsible for 20% of greenhouse gas warming. A proven, economical way of mitigating these emissions is to find high-flow methane sources and convert the methane stream into carbon dioxide, using flares or generators, mitigating 96% of the warming effects. We propose to develop a miniature methane flare, capable of handling emissions from sources in the range of 10-200 tonne ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. A Bidirectional, Transformerless Converter Topology for Grid-tied Energy Storage Systems

    SBC: OPCONDYS INC            Topic: DEFOA0001736

    Grid-tied energy storage systems provide stabilization to the electric grid that is necessary to accommodate the growing percentage of electricity generated by intermittent renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Existing conversion systems between the storage media and the utility lines are large, costly and only 95%-98% energy efficient. In this ARPA-E project, Opcondys, Inc. will build ...

  4. A stable, low cost, low power CO2 sensor for demand controlled ventilation

    SBC: MATRIX SENSORS INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001738

    "We propose to develop a stable, low-cost, low power CO2 sensor module that meets the requirements of the ARPA-E SENSORS FOA, namely, 30 ppm precision over a dynamic range of 400 ppm to 2000 ppm with 10 ppm drift per year. Existing optical non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 sensors simply cannot scale to the cost and power requirements of the FOA. We therefore propose a solid state architecture ...

  5. High Rate Ammonia Synthesis by Intermediate Temperature Solid-State Alkaline Electrolyzer (ITSAE)

    SBC: STORAGENERGY TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: DEFOA0001563

    Ammonia is not only one of the most produced chemicals worldwide for fertilizer, but also a real carbon-neutral liquid fuel (CNLF), which is important for renewable energy storage and transportation. The well-known traditional Haber-Bosch (HB) process annually generates more than 120 million metric tons of ammonia for fertilizer, with about ~1.0% of the world’s annual energy consumpti ...

  6. 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 ...

  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. Advanced sodium batteries with enhanced safety and low cost processing

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: 1

    Sodium beta-alumina batteries are one of the most promising large-scale electrical energy storage technologies due to their high energy density and excellent cycling capability. Despite many advantages, the sodium batteries have several barriers for successful commercialization, mainly related to safety issues and high capital investment for installation. The current battery cells typically oper ...

  9. High-quality, low-cost GaN single crystal substrates for high-power devices

    SBC: FAIRFIELD CRYSTAL TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: 1

    The proposed project is to demonstrate a novel technique for producing GaN single-crystal boules that yield GaN wafers and substrates suitable for fabrication of GaN high-power devices. The two key attributes of the proposed novel GaN growth technique (a bulk crystal growth technique) are: a high growth rate and an ability to achieve a superior crystal quality. The novel GaN crystal growth techn ...

  10. Vertical GaN transistors on bulk GaN substrates

    SBC: Avogy            Topic: 1

    In this abstract the development of vertical power transistors utilizing bulk GaN substrates with breakdown voltages of 1200V or higher, normally-off operation, and a drain current rating of 100A is proposed. These devices will feature vertical current flow, avalanche ruggedness, and a wide operating temperature range (-55 to 150°C). The target specific on-resistance for the transistor is 30x low ...
