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. LASER CONTROLLED HIGH POWER SEMICONDUCTOR OPENING SWITCH TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE CONCEPT FOR A BULK OPTICALLY-CONTROLLED SEMICONDUCTOR SWITCH (BOSS), WHERE TWO DIFFERENT WAVELENGTH LASERS ARE USED TO GENERATE AND QUENCH PHOTOCONDUCTIVITY WAS RECENTLY INTRODUCED BY SCHOENBACH AND LAKDAWALA AT OLD DOMINION UNIVERSITY (ODU). INSTEAD OF SUSTAINING PHOTOCONDUCTANCE BYLASER LIGHT, AS IN CONVENTIONAL PHOTOCONDUCTIVE SWITCHES, ONE LASER IS USED TO DRIVE THE SWITCH INTO A CONDUCTIV ...

  2. A NEW, OFF-PEAK ELECTRIC THERMAL STORAGE APPLIANCE FOR COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL USE.

    SBC: Thermal Electric Devices Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS COUNTRY IS FACING AN EXTREMELY DIFFICULT PROBLEM IN PROVIDING ELECTRIC ENERGY IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITIES FOR THE NEAR FUTURE. THIS PROBLEM IS COMPOUNDED, ON THE ONE HAND, BY THE VERY HIGH COST OF NUCLEAR POWER, THE EXTREMELY LONG APPROVAL AND CONSTRUCTION TIMES, AND THE SHUTTING DOWN OF SEVERAL PLANTS EVEN BEFORE START UP BECAUSE OF THE CONCERNS OF LOCAL CITIZENS. ON THE OTHER HAND, CONVENTIONA ...

  3. AN ULTRA FAST SCINTILLATOR FOR WELL LOGGING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF THEIR LONG DECAY TIMES, SCINTILLATORS IN NEUTRON LOGGING TOOLS ARE RESPONSIVE PRIMARILY TO THE GAMMA RADIATION FROM THE NEUTRON CAPTURE SPECTUM. THIS INHIBITS POROSITY MEASUREMENTS IN GAS-FILLED ZONES AND SUBSTANTIALLY LIMITS THE ELEMENTAL INFORMATION ON THE STRATA WHICH CAN BE ACQUIRED. ADVANCES IN NEUTRON LOGGING TOOLS REQUIRE A NEW SCINTILLATOR MATERIAL CAPABLE OF MAKING PRECISION ME ...

  4. INLET-PRECHARGED LIMESTONE EMISSION CONTROL (LEC) PROJECT

    SBC: ETHERWARE, LLC            Topic: N/A

    MANY UTILITY AND INDUSTRY COAL-FIRED BOILERS HAVE ELECTROSTATIC PRECIPITATORS (ESPS) ALONE, WHICH ARE NOT CAPABLE OF REMOVING SO2. MANY OLDER ESPS WILL REQUIRE UPGRADING IN THE 1990S TO MEET MORE STRINGENT PARTICULATE STANDARDS. ETS, INC. HAS TESTED ITS PATENTED LIMESTONE EMISSION CONTROL (LEC) SYSTEM, DEMONSTRATING GREATER THAN 90% SO2 REMOVAL CAPABILITY. LECS CAN BE PLACED DOWNSTREAM OF ESPS. IT ...

  5. DEPRESSED COLLECTORS FOR MEGAWATT GYROTRONS

    SBC: PHYRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO SHOW THE FEASIBILITY OF DEPRESSED COLLECTORS FOR VERY HIGH AVERAGE POWER (APPROX. 1MW) GYROTRON OSCILLATORS FOR FUSION APPLICATIONS. INITIAL CALCULATIONS INDICATE THAT COLLECTION EFFICIENCIES EXCEEDING 75% CAN BE REALIZED. USE OF SUCH A COLECTOR ON A GYROTRON WITH A BASE EFFICIENCY OF 30% WOULD INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY TO OVER 60%. SUCH A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN EFFICIENCY WOU ...

  6. IMPROVEMENTS IN MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE DESIGN AND PREDICTIVE MODELS FOR RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY SYSTEMS

    SBC: KALSI ENGINEERING, INC            Topic: N/A

    MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE OPERABILITY PROBLEMS AND FAILURES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AS STATEDIN NRC IE BULLETIN 85-03 AND GENERIC LETTER 89-10. THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT IMPROVING GATE VALVE PERFORMANCE BY (1) DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIVE PERFORMANCE PREDICTION MODELS FOR USE OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, (2) DEFINING LIMITS, BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGNS, BEYOND WHICH E ...

  8. A HIGH SPATIAL RESOLUTION SPECTROGRAPH FOR DNA SEQUENCING

    SBC: Chromex Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IF THE HUMAN GENOME PROJECT IS TO BE SUCCESSFUL, MUCH MORE RAPID DNA SEQUENCING WILL BE REQUIRED. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS 100-500 TIMES TOO SLOW TO PERMIT SEQUENCING OF THE ENTIRE HUMAN GENOME BY THE ORIGINAL PROJECTED COMPLETION DATE OF 2005. CURRENTLY, THE MOST SUCCESSFUL TECHNOLOGY EMPLOYED FOR LARGE SCALE DNA SEQUENCING INVOLVES REAL-TIME, FOUR COLOR, FLUORESCENT LINE IMAGIN ...

  9. AN EFFICIENT 10-20 GIGAHERTZ HIGH-POWER MICROWAVE AMPLIFIER

    SBC: Fm Technologies Inc            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVOLVES THE ANALYSIS OF A HIGH HARMONIC, HIGH EFFICIENCY MICROWAVE GENERATOR THAT APPEARS TO BE SUITABLE FOR APPLICATIONS SUCH AS A DRIVER FOR THE NEXT GENERATION OF LINEAR COLLIDERS. THE CONCEPT EMPLOYS A ROTATING "SPIRALING" BEAM TO EXCITE AND AMPLIFY CIRCULARLY POLARIZED MICROWARE RADIATION IN AN INTERACTION OUTPUT WAVEGUIDE. MODULATION OF A LINEAR, HIGH POWER, SMALL DIAMETER BEAM ...

  10. A GEOSTATISTICAL ANALYSIS OF CROSSBOREHOLE SEISMIC DATA FOR RESERVOIR CHARACTERIZATION

    SBC: Justice Associates Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED MANAGEMENT OF HYDROCARBON RESERVOIRS MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT KEY TO MAINTAINING OR EXPANDING THE PETROLEUM/NATURAL GAS PRODUCTION CAPABILITY OF THE U.S. IN THE WORLD MARKET. NEW INTERWELL SEISMIC IMAGING OF THE DISTRIBUTION OF RESERVOIR DESCRIPTION, SIMULATION, AND MANAGEMENT. THIS TECHNOLOGY OFFERS ONE OF THE FEW MEANS AVIALABLE TODAY FOR EVALUATING THE STATE OF THE RESERVOIR BETWEEN S ...
