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. High-Reliability Cements for Enhanced Geothermal Systems

    SBC: HIFUNDA LLC            Topic: 04b

    The nation is currently faced with the significant challenge of developing alternative sources of energy to meet our growing energy needs in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner, while reducing carbon emissions. For a significant population of the western United States and the world that live near geothermal resources that may be exploited by enhanced geothermal systems (EGS), the ...

  2. Enhanced Methane Production by Co-Gasification of Potassium-Rich Biomass and Coal

    SBC: REACTION ENGINEERING INTERNATIONAL            Topic: 25a

    Natural gas, which is predominantly methane, is widely used by industry as a chemical feedstock and as a fuel for power generation. The increasing price and diminishing domestic supply of natural gas creates an incentive to develop a low-cost replacement for the fuel. Coal gasification is one approach to provide the alternative fuel. However, the dominant commercially available coal gasifiers are ...

  3. A Wireline-Deployed Tool for Monitoring Fluid Flow within an EGS Borehole

    SBC: Fluidtracer, Inc.            Topic: 05a

    Critical to determining the success of an EGS well is the measurement of the flow distribution along the open-hole length of that well. Knowledge of not only the depth but the spacing of intersected fractures is required in order to determine the sweep efficiency of fluids flowing through the reservoir. Currently, the only device available for measuring fluid flow within a geothermal wellbore is t ...

  4. Automated Cache Performance Analysis and Optimization in Open|SpeedShop

    SBC: ARGO NAVIS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 02b

    While there is no lack of performance counter tools for coarse-grained measurement of cache activity, there is a critical lack of tools for relating data layout to cache behavior to application performance. Generally, any nontrivial optimizations are either not done at all, or are done by hand requiring significant time and expertise. To the best of our knowledge no tool available to users measure ...

  5. Laser Cladding Applied to the Construction of PFCs with Integral Tritium Diffusion Barriers

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 27b

    Selection of the Plasma-Facing Component (PFC) material composition is a primary consideration in future fusion reactor design. The PFC materials must not only withstand the harsh operating conditions of the reactor, but the amount of tritium uptake experienced by the PFC during operation is a significant factor. Proper operation, safety and environmental impact mandate that t ...

  6. Synthesis of a Potential Fast Ionic Conductor for Mg+ Ions

    SBC: POWDERMET INC            Topic: 15b

    Development of a solid with high conductivity of Mg2+ cations will allow application of that substance as membrane in magnesium-air batteries. These batteries will be much cheaper, safer, and at the same time store much more energy than lead-, lithium- or sodium batteries with the same weight. Such batteries would be ideal for electric vehicles and for the off-peak storage of renewable elect ...

  7. Virtual Accelerator Support for HPC Clouds

    SBC: RNET TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 02a

    Due to huge levels of computing parallelism and higher performance per watt, comuting accelerators are crucial for increasing HPC efficiency. This is economically significant for small and medium size manufacturing companies (SMMs) and essential for transition to Exascale computing. However, due to high procurement costs, in-house maintenance of an accelerated HPC cluster is prohibitive for many ...

  8. Rotating Liner Engine: Improving Efficiency of Heavy Duty Diesels by Significant Friction Reduction, and Extending The Life of Heavy Duty Engines.

    SBC: ROTATING SLEEVE ENGINE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: 06h

    The ultimate goal of the project is to demonstrate that the rotating liner engine (RLE) can increase fuel efficiency in heavy duty vehicles by about 3.5-4% at full load, about 25% at idle, and about 10% for an average duty cycle, can reduce CO2, NOx and PM and reduce engine wear. Design already completed. The face seal is the only technical challenge of the concept, and the main design features pe ...

  9. Carbon Nanotube-based Solar Water Heater

    SBC: SOLARNO INC            Topic: 03e

    Solar water heaters are a well-established renewable energy technology that has been widely adopted outside of the United States. Here we propose to significantly improve the evacuated solar tube collectors (ETC) by utilizing the dry-drawable carbon nanotube (CNT) sheets for solar energy absorption and CNT multifunctional nanocomposites with functional layers of heat accumulators and heat transpo ...

  10. High Efficiency Thin Film Thermoelectric Generators (HiE TFTEGs) for Vehicles

    SBC: Sheetak Inc.            Topic: 06f

    A significant portion of the waste heat from engine exhaust can be recovered using thermoelectric generators to achieve up to 10% gain in automotive mileage. There have been several efforts underway on this front but most have focused on demonstrating thermoelectric generators using bulk materials that consume significant amount of raw materials and are prone to failures due to thermal expansion, ...
