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. Advanced Thermal Management of Power Converters

    SBC: ADVANCED COOLING TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N21AT012

    Advanced sensors and effectors are driving shipboard power distribution systems toward higher voltages, resulting in greater thermal demands on the power conversion modules.  Wide Bandgap (WBG) semiconductors, such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN), can be utilized to reduce thermal inefficiencies with high-frequency switching topologies, but heat generation is still a primary li ...

  2. Integrated Reduced-Expansion Microchannel Cooling for SiC Power Modules

    SBC: Micro Cooling Concepts, Inc            Topic: N21AT012

    High power semiconductor devices suffer from difficulty in dissipating heat and thermal stresses. Silicon carbide-based power modules, in particular, have increasingly challenging heat loads despite their high efficiencies. In general terms, the module packaging methods used to improve cooling (moving metal heatsinks closer to the die) also increase thermal stresses, and the methods used to reduce ...

  3. Self-Healing Ship Systems

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: N21AT014

    As modern-day ships require more advanced applications and systems to run directly on the vessel, they require large amounts of computational resources to execute the complex software and algorithms.  While these next generation capabilities provide immense value, the downside is that now the compute servers and clusters required to support these capabilities become single points of failure. To c ...

  5. A photoacoustic spectral absorption instrument with integrated calibration system

    SBC: HANDIX SCIENTIFIC INC            Topic: N21AT015

    Light absorption by aerosols is a key component to atmospheric extinction, and affects a number of processes relevant to the Navy. Satellite and other remotely sensed measurements can be strongly impacted by aerosols, obscuring targets and/or confounding interpretation of data products. Directed energy applications, including weapon and communication systems, are also impacted by absorption, which ...

  6. Chaotic resonators for low-SWaP integrated compressive sensing systems

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: N21AT004

    We propose the novel approach of using chaotic micro-resonators on photonic integrated circuits to reduce the size, weight, and power (SWaP) and increase the stability of the random basis generation portion of a compressive sensing system with the goal of enabling a large bandwidth radio frequency (RF) receiver while reducing the requirements on data capture. Our proposed technical and programmati ...

  7. Photonic Integrated Analog-to-Information Receiver

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: N21AT004

    As complexity and performance requirements increases for RF sensors and systems for electronic warfare applications, the need for innovative and low-power compressive sensing (CS) technologies will become urgent in power constrained mobile platforms. There are several DOD and government application areas where this holds true and the high-performance CS technology to be developed in this program c ...

  8. Eye-readable Solution-based Dye Displacement Probe for Large-area Detection of Opioids

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: CBD20AT001

    Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc., in collaboration with Bowling Green State University, proposes to develop a field-rugged, eye-readable indicating spray solution that can immediately detect synthetic opioids over a large area of contamination (i.e., military vehicles, individual protective equipment, clandestine labs, etc.). The proposed chemosensor in a spray solution format will detect multipl ...

  9. Efficient Burn-in Process for High Power QCL Lasers

    SBC: RAYTUM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: N20BT029

    Raytum Photonics teams with the Center for Advanced Life Cycle Engineering (CALCE) of University of Maryland in order to come up with an efficient burn-in process to effectively screen out infant mortality and accurately predict life time for QCL lasers in shortest possible time.   The proposed burn-in process is based on an accelerated degradation model which speeds up the burn-in process by el ...

  10. Accelerated Burn-In Process for High Power Quantum Cascade Lasers to Reduce Total Cost of Ownership

    SBC: ADTECH PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N20BT029

    Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) are one of the most versatile sources of radiation in the mid-infrared range and have found applications in a variety of fields. Despite their widespread adoption, one of the main hurdles holding QCLs back from large volume manufacturing is the large cost of ownership. While QCLs, like most semiconductor devices based on III-V compounds, can leverage the economies of ...
