The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY22 is not expected to be complete until September, 2023.

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.

  1. Biologically-inspired Integrated Vision System

    SBC: Spectral Imaging Laboratory            Topic: AF12BT03

    ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV) imaging sensors that sample the radiation field in multiple modes: spectral, temporal, polarization, and detailed object shape. These multimodal sensors are to be deployed on high altitude drones to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities. Smaller versions o ...

  2. Proactive Contextual Decision Support for Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: N13AT020

    Current decision tools often omit important situational context. Unfortunately, this can lead to dangerous and costly errors, as context drives decision making. For example, in operational navigation planning tasks, decisions must be made that rely on multiple information sources of different fidelities and uncertainties. Furthermore, after obtaining additional information the necessity for replan ...

  3. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: ST13A005

    We propose to design, fabricate and test turbine blade configurations in a flow driven by a continuous detonation wave engine with a goal of understanding the physics and efficiency of such an integrated device. Analysis based on CFD models and cycle perf

  4. MK III Upper Extremity Exoskeleton

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: 739552

    As the carry and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the burden on the human body will necessarily increase. In our present TALOS MkIII project, we are developing lower body augmentation to preserve speed and agility while bearing this weight. Yet we cannot ignore the impact of this weight on the upper body: in this project we propose to develop an upper body exoskeleton with p ...

  5. New Paradigms in High Pressure Combustion Dynamics Prediction and Control

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF12BT15

    ABSTRACT:In this project we seek to transition major recent developments in the mathematics of model reduction to industrial grade computing applications in liquid rocket combustion instability. From the mathematical side, we are interested in unsteady nonlinear dynamical systems which exhibit limit-cycle behavior and large oscillations and potentially discontinuous solutions. From the application ...

  6. Improved Flotation Separation of Rare Earth Ore

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: OSD12T01

    A critical step in the extraction of elements from ore, especially rare earth elements that are found in complex minerals, is separation. Froth flotation is a highly versatile method for physically separating particles based on differences in the ability of air bubbles to selectively adhere to specific mineral surfaces in a mineral/water slurry. The particles with attached air bubbles are then ca ...

  7. A High Power Density Rotary Engine for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N10AT001

    In Phase I MER demonstrated the superior performance and power-to-weight ratios of the VS-Rotary engine. In Phase II MER will team with the University of Arizona who will provide engine modeling, simulation, and analysis along with advanced precision machining and fabrication. MER will also team with NCE of Tucson to provide test and systems integration development of the engine to the applicatio ...

  8. Radio Frequency Infrared (RF-IR) Data Fusion

    SBC: Decibel Research, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T002

    Under the Phase I effort, a set of algorithms were developed/enhanced that, when integrated into a fused track and characterization schema, are capable of realizing the full potential performance afforded by the battle manager having multiple sensors. dBWager is a multi-sensor measurement correlation algorithm that provides highly accurate state vector estimates and provides the correlation of e ...

  9. Automated Approaches to Cellular Engineering and Biomanufacturing

    SBC: Covitect Inc.            Topic: ST12B003

    Genome-scale predictable cellular design and engineering of biomanufacturing systems is the overarching goal of DARPAs Living Foundries and 1000 Molecules programs and, if realized, will enable rapid engineering of living systems for a broad range of applications in biotechnology and pharmacology. However, constructing living cells with designed genome is an arduous task that is severely limited ...
