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. Non-Equilibrium Plasma for Energy-Efficient Nitrogen Fixation

    SBC: NITRICITY INC.            Topic: T

    Nitricity is developing a technology that produces nitrogen fertilizer using inputs of air, water, and renewable electricity. If successful, this technology has the potential to economically decarbonize fertilizer production from the Haber-Bosch process, which is a $68B global market and gigaton CO2eq/yr mitigation opportunity. Our team has developed a plasma-based process that couples with on-far ...

  2. Development of Carbon-Conserving Biosynthetic Systems Co-Utilizing C1 and Biomass Derived Feedstocks

    SBC: ZymoChem Inc            Topic: 1

    Herein, Zymochem, Inc., in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), proposes to develop carbon- and energy-efficient biocatalysts capable of co-conversion of C1- and biomass-derived substrates to a high-volume platform fuel and chemical intermediate. We propose to demonstrate a carbon conserving decoupled growth & production (DGP) process to enable improved carbon efficien ...

  3. Engineering of Scalable Platinum-free Electrodes for Pure-Water AEM Water Electrolysis

    SBC: EVOLOH, INC.            Topic: T

    Producing green hydrogen using renewable energy can reduce emissions for major domestic industrial sectors which use hydrogen as a feedstock like ammonia fertilizer, refineries, chemicals and steel. Additionally, green hydrogen can be used to reduce dependencies on foreign energy sources as a transportation fuel for heavy-duty vehicles, a long-duration energy storage medium, or as a natural gas re ...

  4. Increasing Carbon Drawdown and Retention in Terrestrial Biomass using Bioengineered Trees

    SBC: Living Carbon PBC            Topic: T

    Carbon drawdown and retention in terrestrial biomass is currently limited by the rate of photosynthetic assimilation and of decay of lignocellulosic biomass respectively. Living Carbon is developing innovative methods of reducing the susceptibility of vegetative biomass to decay by lignotrophic fungi, thereby reducing the rate of release of carbon dioxide back to the atmosphere through fungal resp ...

  5. A transformative low cost approach for Direct Air Mineralization of CO2 via repeated cycles of ambient weathering of metal oxides

    SBC: EQUIOPPS, INC            Topic: T

    Increasing concentration of CO 2 in the atmosphere poses a threat to the global climate. One promising method for reducing atmospheric CO 2 is a repeated enhanced weathering process. Enhanced weathering is a process where a natural reaction between CO 2 gas and minerals rich in magnesium and/or calcium is accelerated to quickly form a solid carbonate. The cycle can be repeated by separating the CO ...

  8. Structured Stories for MOVINT

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA203001

    Arete will integrate the Mover Intelligence Extraction Engine with the Social Structured Framework (SSF) to produce a capability to generate narratives of MOVINT track data with context derived from associated Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and other foundation data. The Extraction Engine will be derived from the Arete Cognitive Behavior Classifier (CBC) to characterize MOVINT tracks into co ...

  9. A Multiphysics Approach to Radio Frequency Modeling of Ablators in Ionized Hypersonic Flow

    SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: NGA203002

    ATA Engineering, Inc., (ATA) proposes to develop and demonstrate a multiphysics framework for the radar cross-section (RCS) analysis of an ablating hypersonic vehicle in an ionized plasma flow field. ATA has developed a software toolset, known as the Multiphysics Engine, capable of modeling many of these hypersonic phenomena. It couples state-of-the-art solvers for CFD (Loci/CHEM), ablation (CHAR) ...

  10. Topological Data Analysis for Automated Annotation of EO/SAR Datasets

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: NGA203005

    In recent years, it has become increasingly important to conduct Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) operation via commercial and government persistent sensor systems, which have produced a copious amount of data relevant to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA). As the supply of data expands, it is necessary to employ automated analytics to exploit the data efficiently. We cannot rely on ...
