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. Metal Additive Manufacturing with Minimal Post Processing (MaMMPP) (18-RD-116)

    SBC: UES INC            Topic: A18BT003

    Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) research has typically addressed understanding how to maximize performance for an AM material, taking into account microstructural anisotropy, residual stress, defects (such as pores and lack of fusion defects), and surface finish. Optimizing a part then requires significant post processing such as hot isostatic pressing (HIP), heat treatment and surface finishing ...

  2. MEMS based thermopile infrared detector array for chemical and biological sensing

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A10AT004

    Thermopile arrays manufactured using integrated process compatible materials and micro-machining will provide high performance with low manufacturing cost. Black Forest Engineering (BFE) teamed with Case Western Reserve University will design thermopiles using silicon based semiconductors and compare performance. Low cost thermopiles, differentially coupled with advanced BFE CMOS readout, will pr ...

  3. Membraneless Water Purification via Continuous, Self-Contained, Vacuum-Assisted Diffusiophoresis

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: A18BT005

    We propose the development of a membraneless water purification system using continuous, self-contained, vacuum-assisted diffusiophoresis. Using diffusiophoresis allows the system to clean water contaminated with particulates and bacteria without membranes or filters, while producing a stream of fresh, drinkable water. The system will operate using only electricity supplied by portable batteries/s ...

  4. Low Cost Fabrication of Armor Protection Systems for Military Tactical Vehicles

    SBC: NexGen Composites LLC            Topic: A13AT021

    There is a great need and opportunity to develop lower cost manufacturing process for ceramic tile-based composite armor system for military tactical vehicles. The threat levels encountered by the military tactical vehicles, particularly due to the Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) pose an ever-increasing need for more lightweight and effective vehicle armor system at an affordable cost. A low-co ...

  5. LITE Spectrometer for surface bound CBE Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT022

    A stand-off mid-IR based system offers great promise for the detection of chemical, biological or explosive (CBE) agents. Such a system has yet to be realized due mostly to broad spectral features and interfering substances. In this proposal we will demonstrate the feasibility of a system that collects laser induced thermal emission (LITE) from a substance and identifies it as known CBE agent with ...

  6. Leader-Following for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A10AT030

    TRACLabs Inc. has worked with NASA to create indoor/outdoor, vision-based leader-following systems for sparse, extra-terrestrial environments. Brown University's Robotics Group has demonstrated leader-following and gesture recognition in high-traffic, dynamic, indoor environments using active lidar sensing. We propose to combine our technologies in order to create a passive sensing system that w ...

  7. Inorganic Oxide Supported Biomimetic Membranes with Ion Channels for DMFC Application

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC            Topic: A11aT013

    Methanol crossover of commercial Nafion membranes is a major issue that results in lowering of the efficiency of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs). A biomimetic approach for the membrane design using either proton conducting nanochannels and/or nanothin barrier layer can produce DMFC membranes with highly selective and fast proton transfer. In the Phase I project, Lynntech demonstrated the feasib ...

  8. Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT009

    The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...

  9. Improved Combustion Efficiency and Reduction of Emissions of Compression Ignition Engines Using On-Board Non-Thermal Plasma Generated Hydrogen/Syngas

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC            Topic: A11aT023

    The Department of Defense (DOD) accounts for over 21 million barrels of oil usage per day, with a majority of the fuel being appropriated to JP-8. Among the military"s various armed forces, the Army alone spends over $4.1 billion for energy, with a major portion of this also attributed to JP-8 jet fuel consumption for maintaining operational capability on a daily basis. Diesel generators are curre ...

  10. Impact of Climate Change on Military Compounds in the Environment

    SBC: Environmental Quality Management            Topic: A09AT024

    This will facilitate the development of remedial approaches for existing facilities and assist in planning new facilities, logistics, and procedures to protect the environment without impairing critical mission functionality. The commercial application will include software distribution and updates.
