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. RAPID (Remote Assessment of Powerline Infrastructure Damage) Radar

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 29c

    In a catastrophic event, much of the electrical infrastructure can be damaged, even destroyed. The US Power Grid is a critical infrastructure and a catastrophic failure would result in huge humanitarian and economic loss. In addition, a widespread power outage would affect the readiness and response capabilities of various security agencies including Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Local P ...

  2. Economical Self-Powered Portable Clean Energy Desalination System

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: 09

    Many communities face water scarcity as a fundamental challenge to their economic and social development. Seawater is an abundant source which can be reached by most of the countries in the world. In order to utilize seawater as potable water, it is required to remove the high salinity. Desalination technologies are intended for the removal of dissolved salts that cannot be removed by conventional ...

  4. Experimental analysis and model development of pyrolysis/combustion of coal/biomass in a bench scale spouted bed reactor

    SBC: PRECISION COMBUSTION, INC.            Topic: 15a

    There is widespread concern regarding carbon emissions from fossil fuels, resulting in a drive towards improved efficiency in reactor (boiler) performance while reducing carbon emissions. Coal will continue to be a primary source of energy for economic growth for the foreseeable future, thus there is a push to reduce net carbon emissions of coal operated plants by replacing part of the coal with b ...

  5. Cavity Enhanced Thomson Scattering System for Low Temperature Plasmas

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 30a

    Electrons play a very key role in plasma chemistry and dynamics of low temperature plasmas. Improved capability for measuring electron number density, ne, and electron energy distribution function, EEDF, in weakly ionized low temperature plasmas would benefit both fundamental study and application areas. For example, the capability would directly benefit emerging research targeted at modifying and ...

  6. Practical Fiber Delivered Laser Ignition Systems for Vehicles

    SBC: Seaforth LLC            Topic: 08b

    Improved ignition methods are needed for advanced vehicle combustion systems, in particular those that allow reliable ignition of lean mixtures in gasoline engines at elevated pressures. Laser ignition is a candidate technology having the potential to address these needs. However, despite more than 40 years of laser ignition research, the technology is not yet in commercial use. A critical proble ...

  7. Optimal Integrated Control of Grid-Connected PV Generation and On-site Load

    SBC: NHU ENERGY, INC.            Topic: 13

    Maximizing the value proposition for solar and distributed energy resources to consumers requires a more integrated and coordinated approach to utilizing these resources on-site. Commercial solutions are not yet widely available to provide optimal use of combined on-site resources locally, while at the same time optimizing their value to the electric power distribution system as well. Solutions st ...

  8. Surface Acoustic Wave Enhancement of Photocathode Perfomance

    SBC: MUPLUS INC.            Topic: 23b

    Novel electron gun features are required to enhance the peak and/or average beam brightness by reducing the emittances of electron bunches while allowing the guns to operate at a high repetition rate using laser excitation of the photocathode. The generation of surface acoustical waves (SAWs) on piezoelectric substrates is known to produce strong piezoelectric fields that propagate on the surface ...

  9. Bio-inspired Macromolecules Containing Atomically Precise Catalytic Active Sites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: 09

    High selectivity in chemical reactions is the key to reducing costs, energy consumption and emissions in chemical processing. More selective and active catalysts will reduce the need for recovering unreacted chemicals for recycle and removing byproducts. Reducing the burden on separation processes will greatly reduce the energy required for chemical production. We propose to design macromolecular ...

  10. Safety Software Assurance Compliance verification and Risk Evaluation (S-SACRE)

    SBC: Tri-Guard Risk Solutions, LTD            Topic: 30

    Most digital systems being software intensive are also vulnerable to attacks that exploit software weaknesses. According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, “exploiting weaknesses in digital technology could be the most attractive route for those terrorists seeking to attack nuclear facilities without fear of interdiction.” Recent publicized events about cyber-attack on critical infrast ...
