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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Decoupling High-Density Hydrogen from the Liquid Hydrogen Infrastructure: Catalyst-Filled Heat Exchangers for Modular Cryo-Compressors

    SBC: VERNE INC            Topic: NA

    Cryo-compressed hydrogen (CcH2) offers a thermodynamic optimum for high-density, low-cost storage as a key element in achieving economical hydrogen infrastructure. Verne is developing a cryo-compressor technology platform that will convert gaseous hydrogen (GH2) at low pressures (e.g. 20 bar) and 300 K, to CcH2 (60 – 80 K and 300 – 500 bar). These systems provide hydrogen with liquid-like dens ...

  8. A fast pulse, portable fast neutron source for special nuclear materials detection

    SBC: ALAMEDA APPLIED SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes to develop a fast pulse, portable, fast neutron source to detect SNM in the field. Our source offers a 20ns neutron pulse with a repetition rate up to 1kHz. The goal is to develop a source with 1000hrs of continuous operation at 1E8 n/s. The Ph I program will demonstrate the critical features of the source including pulse width, reproducibility and neutron yi ...

  9. High-Yield Pulsed Neutron Generator

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    A pulsed neutron generator is proposed for the detection of special nuclear material. A recently developed RF-excited plasma neutron generator will be pulsed to produce the activating neutrons whose pulse length is 100 microseconds with a fall time of less than 1 microsecond. High pulse repetition rates and high peak neutron yields can be otained depending upon the RF generator used. Using the T-T ...

  10. CZT Surveillance Camera

    SBC: Aguila Technologies, Inc.            Topic: HSB071008

    The improved surveillance of radioactive sources used in hospitals, research centers, food irradiations plants and other fully legal and sanctioned industries is paramount to interrupt the terrorism value chain. This value chain relies on stealing radioactive sources from the legitimate before mentioned institutions to build radiological dispersal devices (RRD). Nowadays, radioactive sources are s ...
