The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

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. A Smart IR Fire Detection System

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Smart IR technology has advanced at a rapid pace over the last two decades, pushed along by primarily defense-related requirements. This includes such breakthroughs as Acousto-Optic Tunable Filters and microbolometer detector arrays. Coupled with the continuing growth in microprocessor power, this promises to make a new generation of fast, cheap and reliable infrared (IR) fire detectors possible ...

  2. Electromagnetic Detection of Tornadoes

    SBC: Airborne Research Associates            Topic: N/A

    The ultimate objective of this project is to develop an instrument capable of remote detection and location of tornadoes and/or storms containing tornadoes. There are many reports, both scientific and anecdotal, suggesting that tornadoes and tornadic thunderstorms emit anomalous electromagnetic (EM) radiation-both RF and luminous. This radiation is characterized by unusually high rates of EM pulse ...

  4. Electromagnetic Resonance Sensors for Determination of Moisture Content in Concrete

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The overall quality and the comprehensive strength, in particular, of concrete are critically dependent on the water content in the concrete mixture. It is also essential to know if the concrete has reached a stage of moisture equilibrium before surface finishes such as paint or carpet can be applied. At present, no reliable method or easy-to-use instrument exists for determining the moisture co ...

  5. A Ruggedized System for Measuring Extreme Winds

    SBC: Caregiver Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop technology, termed a Ruggedized Wind Measurement System (RWMS), to measure directly extreme winds with high space and time resolution, focusing on the winds that occur beneath hurricanes at land fall. This development effort will include design, fabrication of two prototype RWMS units, and a series of proof-of-concept demonstrations in strong mountain-induced downslope and severe t ...

  6. Ultrafast Compact Laser Source for Non-Linear Optical Diagnostics

    SBC: CLARK-MXR, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to develop compact, reliable lasers producing intense (millijoule) femtosecond pulses at high repetition rates. These lasers will be designed to operate in industrial environments and will be ideally suited for non-linear optical diagnostics. During the Phase I we will demonstrate that diode-pumped fiber lasers can generate reliably ultrashort pulses, and that their ...

  8. Use of Very High Frequency Plasmas to Prepare a-SiGe Alloy Photovoltaic

    SBC: ENERGY CONVERSION DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The program objective is to investigate the feasibility of using a very high frequency (VHF) [70 MHz] plasma technique to produce high efficiency a-SiGe:H solar cells at relatively high deposition rates. Using the VHF technique, high quality a-SiGe:H material is expected due to enhanced low energy ion bombardment of the growing film surface which has been found to be beneficial to the growth of th ...

  9. A Dynamical Instrument for Machining Centers

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In the program, we will develop a measurement system based on the dynamics of the machining process. This system will use the variation in the forces or accelerations occurring during machining to characterize the mechanisms occurring between the cutter and workpiece. This will provide real time indications of the finish of the surface that is being created, the proximity to the chatter threshol ...
