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. Development of a breeding system in Chlamydomonas moewusii for improved production strains

    SBC: GLOBAL ALGAE INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: 08c

    For economically viable large-scale production of microalgae based food and biofuel to become a reality, significant improvements in algal productivity need to be achieved. With current regulatory guidelines, large scale outdoor cultivation of microalgae for these products restricts the use of transgenic algal strains, which in the laboratory, have thus far been the primary strategy taken to effec ...

  2. Plasma Catalyst Coupling for Improved Conversion of Methane to Liquids

    SBC: HIFUNDA LLC            Topic: 22c

    The discovery of large shale gas reserves in recent years has resulted in the reduction of natural gas price and a need to develop new applications for the available resource. Upgrading shale gas to liquid fuels which are more easily transportable and have greater economic value can result in significant benefits to the US. Coupled with this challenging problem the DOE has a goal of further develo ...

  3. High Power Ceramic Disk Lasers with Gradient Doping Made by Direct Ink Writing

    SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC.            Topic: 25c

    The power output of the high power lasers used in physics research is limited by the materials available for making the gain media in the laser. Future increases in power will require new and better materials. Operation at high power creates great thermal stresses that can lead to effects such as birefringence, thermal lensing or even physical fracture damage to the host itself. Effective cooling ...

  5. Expanding Access to Electronic Property Modeling in Scintillator Crystal Growth and Development

    SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC.            Topic: 03a

    The development of radiation detection materials would benefit with greater access to computational models that relate physical traits seen in manufacture with complex energy transitions occurring in the material that control operating performance. However, the HPC requirements behind these models remain beyond the reach of most businesses involved in this small yet vital field impacting National ...

  6. User Location-Specific Data for Smarter Smart Grids

    SBC: ERIK PAGE & ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: 06b

    Society at large and DOE in particular have an interest in the continued development and refinement of a smart grid infrastructure that more efficiently and reliably matches electrical resources to demands. While technological advances in recent years have improved the smart grid, these advances have been limited by a lack of granularity of data (e.g. environmental conditions at multiple locations ...

  7. Tip-based femtosecond multiphoton spectroscopy with radiative heating

    SBC: Laser Prismatics LLC            Topic: 10a

    One of grand challenges in nanoscience and nanotechnology is to achieve fundamental under- standing of the dynamic evolution of materials in actual operating environment, non-equilibrium conditions, or undergoing chemical reactions at the nanoscale. This requires forefront advances in imaging and analysis techniques that combine nanometer-scale spatial resolution, optical excitation and spectrosco ...

  8. Ultrafast Electron Microscopy Module to Upgrade Existing Commercial Electron Microscopes

    SBC: Niowave, Inc.            Topic: 11a

    This project will develop a flexible longitudinal electron optical system based on high-precision radio-frequency cavities for short and intense electron bunch compressions, both in the energy and time domains. The proposed system is designed to be insertable into an existing transmission electron microscope column to upgrade its temporal resolution. Active phase-space control enables broad ranges ...

  9. Axisymmetric and Focusing Analyzers to Enable Efficient Powder and Residual Stress Neutron Diffractometers

    SBC: ADELPHI TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: 12a

    Although thermal and cold neutron scattering is widely used, and is critical for success in many areas of materials science and engineering, relatively low neutron fluxes severely limit applications of not only laboratory neutrons generators, but also large national neutron facilities. State-of-the-art thermal and cold neutron sources are large expensive national facilities, which serve diverse co ...

  10. Novel Sulfonated Block Copolymers for Efficient Electrochemical Hydrogen Compression

    SBC: Sustainable Innovations, LLC            Topic: 17d

    According to a report by the Hydrogen Council, a global lobby set up in January 2017 by Toyota and Air Liquide that includes 27 members such as automakers Audi, BMW, Daimler, Honda and Hyundai, and energy firms Shell and Total, increasing the use of hydrogen in power, transport, heat and industry could deliver around one fifth of the total carbon emissions cuts needed to limit global warming to sa ...
