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. Recovery Act- Performance Monitoring and Actionable Alert Messaging for Building Integrated Photovoltaics

    SBC: Wattminder            Topic: 07c

    Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) systems present significant challenges with respect to optimal energy efficiency of Photovoltaic (PV) arrays. In these systems, the PV panels replace roof tops, and other building components such as windows. Due to their diverse locations and orientations, influence of numerous environmental factors can significantly reduce the performance and overall eff ...

  2. Accelerating Metagenomics Using Graphics Processing Units

    SBC: Multicoreware, Inc.            Topic: 35a

    A key application of the technological breakthrough associated with decreased cost of DNA sequencing is metagenomics. Metagenomics is the process of sequencing DNA from whole ecosystems, rather than individuals or cultures. This approach has the potential to allow the dissection of microbial ecosystems in biofuel producing agricultural land, toxic contaminated sites and hydrocarbon recovery enviro ...

  3. Verification of CO2 Storage in Coal Beds

    SBC: Algorithmica Llc            Topic: 24b

    The injection and storage of captured CO2 in coal beds has been suggested as a strategy to reduce industrial emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere. The sequestration process involves the adsorption by coal of injected CO2 and an associated desorption of CH4 whose production can partially offset the operational cost. The acceptance of this strategy depends on: the ability to effectively monitor the ...

  4. Recovery Act- High-Efficiency Membrane Regenerator for Liquid Desiccant Air Conditioning

    SBC: PAX SCIENTIFIC INC            Topic: 01a

    Low-Flow Liquid Desiccant Air Conditioning (LDAC) has the potential to dramatically lower the electricity used for commercial air conditioning by directly removing moisture from the air prior to cooling. But in order to achieve widespread market adoption, the mechanisms by which the liquid desiccant is regenerated must be made more energy efficient, reliable and cost-effective. Membrane technolo ...

  5. Advanced Membranes for CO2 Capture from Existing Coal-fired Power Plants

    SBC: NEXTECH MATERIALS, LTD.            Topic: 24a

    Coal is an abundant source of energy in the USA, but is not currently utilized effectively. Recently, the DOE has begun a carbon sequestration program is to develop advanced CO2 capture and compression technology for existing coal-fired plants with increased efficiency with no more than a 35% increase in the cost of electricity. This will require new approaches and technologies to be successful. N ...

  6. High Power RF Windows for Accelerator Applications

    SBC: CALABAZAS CREEK RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: 14e

    High power RF windows are failing due to single surface multipactor. A more effective and robust technique is required to address this problem. This program will investigate two approaches for addressing multipactor failure in high power windows. The first will explore improved methods for depositing surface films to reduce secondary electron emission. The second approach will investigate changes ...

  7. Direct Conversion of Carbon Dioxide to Methanol

    SBC: INNOSENSE CORPORATION            Topic: 13c

    Although carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology has received the most attention for its potential to reduce emissions, processes that convert CO2 into a useful product can provide a positive return on investment and not just be an unrecoverable cost. Compared to CCS technology, the potential revenue generated by the use of CO2-based product is likely to grow popular with time while reducing ...

  10. Nano-Patterned Cathode Surfaces for High Efficiency Photoinjectors

    SBC: RADIABEAM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 05a

    Present day photoinjector cathodes have a poor lifetime or inadequate quantum efficiency for advanced applications. In addition, the efficiency is constrained by the frequency up- conversion in the drive laser from infrared to ultraviolet photons. Novel nanofabrication techniques allow for the sub-wavelength patterning of grooves and hole-array surfaces on the cathode. Exploiting the surface plas ...
