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. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: ATOM INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: In this project, we propose to develop the baseline process to form low source-drain contact resistance to the CNTs. This includes finding the right metal stack and annealing recipe to form good ohmic contact to the CNTs. The goal is to achieve a resistance less than 25 k at per nanotube contact. To reach such goal, we will leverage the interfacial dipole alignment of conjugated polyelec ...

  2. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: CARBON TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have great potential for high performance RF applications. Theoretical study has shown that the electrical current in a CFET is intrinsically linear. Today, linearity is the underlying limitation in increasing the data transport densities of wireless networks. The complex modulation protocols used to achieve higher data rates requires linear amplifiers. Increasing ...

  3. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Optic Development

    SBC: Rochester Precision Optics, LLC            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop a fast axis collimating lens for quantum cascade lasers (QCL) which emit in the midwave-infrared (MWIR) range. These lenses must withstand the stress of both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed laser emission. These high laser powers may cause ablation of lens material reducing effectiveness of the optic and leading to failure. Thus, a high damage ...

  5. CyberSTEPS- Cyber Skills Training with Electronic Performance Support

    SBC: TIER 1 PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF16AT08

    There are many challenges in creating Air Force systems that are resilient against cyber threats. The cyber environment and its threats are highly dynamic, requiring practices and training to be dynamic as well. Cyber threats must be considered during th...

  6. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: OTHER LAB, INC.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...

  7. Design, Reconfigure, and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: TIER 1 PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The proliferation of autonomous- and human-machine systems necessitates the creation of new tools for system design and evaluation. Key among these are simulation testbeds that support interactions between multiple warfighters and systems, and methods for creating and integrating intelligent agent models into simulation environments. We see a significant opportunity to advance the state ...

  8. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF16AT14

    Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...

  9. DREAMIT- Design, Reconfigure and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: TIER 1 PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    Our Phase I work focused on improving modeling and simulations so that the impact of autonomous systems in the battlespace could be better understood. As we have trained our attention on Phase II, it has become increasingly clear that the work we are doing to improve the modeling and simulation of autonomous systems also provides significant leverage for the development of the intelligent behavior ...

  10. Electrically Small Multiferroic Antennas

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF14AT12

    ABSTRACT: We exploit recent advances in magnetoelectric/piezoelectric (ME/PE) composite materials to enable the development of efficient sub-wavelength radio frequency (RF) transmitting antennas. With these materials will be possible to achieve high dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability, slow electromagnetic propagation and low RF loss tangents. Together, these special properties m ...
