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. Versatile and Robust Three-Dimensional Software for Multi-Fluid Plasma Modeling

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF11BT08

    ABSTRACT: In this STTR Tech-X corporation in partnership with the University of Washington will improve a commercial plasma modeling tool, Nautilus, for simulating high-temperature multi-fluid plasmas for problems such as the field reversed configuration, dense plasma focus and the plasma opening switch. Semi-implicit algorithms will be implemented in Nautilus so that the speed of light and elec ...

  2. Computational Model for Electrode Erosion by High-Pressure Moving Arcs

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF11BT25

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this project is to develop theoretical models for electrode erosion in high-pressure arcs and incorporate them into computational tools for simulations of arc heaters. The complexity of the electrode material removal process is associated with the multi-phase nature of the arc-electrode interactions, melting and vaporization of the electrodes near the arc foot. Available mod ...

  4. Satellite Drag Physical Model Module for a Near Real Time Operation Test Bed

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & SPACE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC            Topic: AF11BT29

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force seeks to improve the accuracy of orbit specification and of 72-h orbit predictions beyond present capabilities. Thermospheric neutral density and satellite ballistic coefficient strongly impact satellite drag estimation, which is a leading source of error in orbit predictions in LEO. The goal of this Phase II project is to develop a satellite drag specification capability ...

  5. First-principles-based framework for discovery and design of sustainable non-rare-earth high-temperature alloy systems

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: OSD12T06

    The aim of this STTR program is to develop protocols to discover rare-earth-free/rare-earth-lean magnetic alloys for replacing rare earth (RE) -based alloys for reducing the dependence of supply from China. The development of non-RE high temperature magnetic materials is very challenging. In Phase I, CFDRC in collaboration with its university partner has demonstrated a proof-of-concept computation ...

  6. Evaluation of SANDGT Using SOA Framework for Persistent and Risk-Averse Space Situation Awareness

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF12BT09

    ABSTRACT: Space superiority needs protected tactical space communications with dynamic spectrum sharing, routing adaptation and interference mitigations against kinetic and non kinetic threats. The main focus of this project is to develop game-theoretic analytics and frameworks to support the Air Forces autonomy science & technology strategy (e.g., "deterrence" posture which in turn may be enabled ...

  7. Evaluation of High Performance Computing Enabled Multiple-Target Tracking Based on Massive Parallelism for Urban Surveillance Areas

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT10

    ABSTRACT: Threat detection of people, vehicles, and others as well as person-vehicle interactions (dismounts) of possible malicious intent are difficult problems due to the complexity of the problem space. The wide area motion imagery (WAMI) systems aid analysts to track and identify dismounts, but typically produce an overwhelmingly large amount of information. The large scale data input challeng ...

  8. A Comprehensive Framework to Develop, Refine, and Validate Learning Agents for Tactical Autonomy

    SBC: ORBIT LOGIC INCORPORATED            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: To maintain superiority in the battle domains of space, ground, air and sea, it is natural that the U.S. move toward incorporating autonomous capabilities to enhance/replace the traditional role of humans. Continued advances in processing capability and techniques to employ decision logic and adaptive learning strategies will soon make this vision reality. To deploy any such capability o ...

  9. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: MINERVA SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Speech recognition technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated in a number of applications. Most of these applications require a microphone located near the talker. However, when a distant microphone is used where the speaker is at some distance from the microphone as in a hands-free communication, or in a meeting room, there is a major problem with the captured ...

  10. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The most promising approach to overc ...
