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. Freeform Optics for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: A19BT001

    Traditional spherical optics implemented on a common optical axis are the foundation of today’s fielded gunsights for small arms fire control. SA Photonics has helped pioneer the application of precision injection molded freeform optical surfaces in head/helmet mounted display (HMD) systems for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and low light level sensor applications. SA Photonics tea ...

  2. Metasurface-Enhanced Absorption in a Type II Superlattice Detector

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: A19BT009

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with the University of Texas, Austin (UT), propose to develop a metasurface-enhanced type-II superlattice (T2SL) imaging detector that achieves significant absorption enhancement for midwave infrared wavelengths (MWIR, 3–5 μm) using an absorbing layer with average thickness that is sub-micron. MWIR imaging is critical need for unmanned aircrafts an ...

  3. Sorbent-Polymer Passive Re-chargeable Thermal Battery for Cold Climate Operations

    SBC: THERMOPYLON LLC            Topic: A19BT014

    Cost effective and compact thermal energy storage systems that enable passive, non-powered, repeatable storage and release of heat could offer significant tactical and practical advantages for soldiers’ mission execution and success in a deployed setting of cold climates. Sorbent systems can store heat indefinitely, however, current sorbent-based technologies require storage tanks and complex co ...

  4. Large-scale production of fungal melanin for novel radiation shielding/harvesting applications

    SBC: MELATECH, L.L.C.            Topic: A19BT010

    Melanin-based biomaterials present novel solutions to radiation shielding/countermeasures, camouflage, and insulation, among others. A scalable and sustainable production process for natural melanins is needed to support the R&D and commercialization of melanin-based technologies. MelaTech proposes to develop a fermentation system that involves a novel, rapid melanin isolation process to yield gra ...

  5. Additive Manufacturing of Thermoset Polymers Using Projection-based Stereolithography

    SBC: STORAGENERGY TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A20BT010

    Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes a novel methodology that allows for the 3D printing of different wholly thermally cured thermosets in a fast and precise fashion mask-image-projection-based -Stereolithography (MIP-SLA) additive manufacturing process. The proposed MIP-SLA based approach has several advantages over other technologies for additive manufacturing of thermoset polymers, including ...

  6. Multiplexed field effect transistor sensor suit for filtration performance monitoring

    SBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A20BT025

    Soldiers require upwards of 15 L of water/day to remain properly hydrated. On an extended mission, soldiers can obtain water from indigenous sources using recently developed TIC/TIM filters that are compatible with the MOLLE hydration pack. There is currently no way to assess the continued efficacy of the filtration system in the field. Triton Systems and its partner will develop a handheld electr ...

  7. A Microwave Measurement Facility for Dispersed RF Chaff Materials

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: A20BT016

    Physical Sciences Inc., together with its STTR partner, New Mexico State University proposes, to develop the design of a prototype microwave measurement facility for dispersed radio frequency (RF) chaff materials in this Phase I STTR effort.  The resulting design would be built and tested in Phase II establishing a unique, compact testbed for quick, relatively low-cost screening of laboratory-sca ...

  8. Cost Effective Synthesis of Linear Ring Opening Metathesis Polymers

    SBC: TDA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A20BT011

    Most AI accelerator hardware, such as GPU and TPU, are focused on increasing the throughput and efficiency for training and inference algorithms by massively parallelizing the computation across distinct computing unit and processors. Massive parallelization has to be powered by the continuous shrink of transistor nodes. Unfortunately, an increasing number of barriers are inhibiting the scaling of ...

  9. HASEL Artificial Muscles for Human-Scale Robotics

    SBC: ARTIMUS ROBOTICS INC            Topic: A20BT007

    While robotic systems have advanced in recent years, they are still dramatically outperformed by their biological counterparts. Robots are largely limited by the use of decades-old actuation paradigms such as electromagnetic motors which are bulky, rigid, and expensive, thus limiting the complexity and degrees of freedom of such systems and making close interactions with humans unsafe (such as in ...

  10. Eye-readable Solution-based Dye Displacement Probe for Large-area Detection of Opioids

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Bowling Green State University, proposes to develop a field-rugged, eye-readable indicating spray solution that can immediately detect synthetic opioids over a large area of contamination (i.e., military vehicles, individual protective equipment, clandestine labs, etc.). The proposed chemosensor in a spray solution format will detect multipl ...
