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. 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 ...

  4. 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. Tunable interferometer in SiN

    SBC: NEXUS PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N21BT019

    We propose to develop tunable, high-power handling, low-loss phase-to-amplitude conversion photonic-integrated circuit (PIC) based device on heterogeneous SiN platform. The use of SiN for waveguide is the key to meet the stringent requirements, while additional heterogeneously integrated components are the key to enable tuning and locking of the phase-to-amplitude device. Nexus Photonics, realizi ...

  7. Tunable wideband optical phase to amplitude conversion in a monolithically assembled network

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: N21BT019

    We propose a serially concatenated switchable asymmetric Mach Zehnder switching network on a silicon nitride photonic integrated circuit platform to provide flexible and switchable demodulation of signals from less than 1 GHz to greater than 45 GHz. The silicon nitride platform provides a low size weight and power solution while reducing the stabilization requirements and providing long path lengt ...

  8. Hatchable Solid State Transformer Rectifier Design through System Co-Optimization

    SBC: HEPBURN AND SONS LLC            Topic: N21BT020

    Hepburn and Sons LLC teamed with North Carolina State University (NCSU) proposes an analysis of alternatives (AoA) to design and optimize a megawatt class, solid state transformer rectifier (SSTR) supporting maintainability of U.S. Navy shipboard power infrastructure. The design will convert 13.8kV AC to +-850V DC with modular, line-replaceable units (LRUs) that are compact and lightweight such th ...

  9. Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) Modeling Tool for Optimum Gas Flow in Metal Additive Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N21BT022

    Users of additive manufacturing machines expect the highest quality when it comes to the mechanical properties of parts, the usability of the machines and associated processes, and overall machine design. The main contributor to the quality of the part is the involvement of process-related by-products originating from the melting process. To handle these by-products in additive manufacturing - in ...

  10. 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 ...
