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. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. Using Stylistic Topic Models to Detect Deception Through Unusual Linguistic Activity

    SBC: KITWARE INC            Topic: N10AT029

    Analysts are faced with the challenge of sifting through enormous quantities of documents, blog posts, communications, etc. to find deceptive behaviors. We propose novel techniques for efficiently and automatically detecting deception on large data with high accuracy by using methodologies from both stylometry and topic modeling. This combined approach will learn models of authors and will detect ...

  5. Ultra-Wideband and Full Duplex Radio

    SBC: NOVAA LTD            Topic: AF19BT001

    High-speed and reliable tactical communications have empowered the Air Force with overwhelming information superiority, and control of the battlespace. However, the effectiveness of such systems has been impacted by the increasingly congested and contested spectral environment, compounded by the reliance on half-duplex systems. The latter rely on time- or frequency-division to separate transmit an ...

  6. Ultra-strong and Ultrahigh Conductive Metal/CNT Composites by Electrochemical Co-Deposition and Processing

    SBC: ULTRACONDUCT            Topic: N14AT017

    The goal of this project is to develop processing capabilities for high-strength and ultra-conductive wires to improve power-to-weight ratios and energy efficiency of electrical military systems. The first objective of this Phase I project is to build up quantitative microstructure-property models to guide the development of electrical and thermal conductive carbon nanotubes (CNTs) modified coppe ...

  7. Ultra High Repetition Rate Multi-Parameter Imaging Diagnostics for Reacting Flows

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: AF11BT16

    ABSTRACT: ORBITEC will develop a new diagnostic to acquire simultaneous planes of velocity and temperature data at very high repetition rates. This diagnostic relies on a novel pulse burst laser system, a phosphor thermometry technique, and the mature PIV method. The work plan will involve developing and testing the laser, refining the integrated technique, and demonstrating it in a supersonic ...

  8. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) materials with outstanding material properties offer significant promise to transform infrastructure design and service life. Evolution of UHPC into a mainstream construction material would benefit from the resolution of issues relevant to the restrictive selections of finer aggregates/fillers, large heat of hydration and thermal stresses, high aut ...

  9. Ultrahigh-Bandwidth Robust Performance Diagnostics for Rotating Detonation Engines

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Spectral Energies proposes to design a multisensory diagnostic suite for measurements within elevated-pressure RDEs. This sensor will utilize tunable-laser absorption spectroscopy to measure temperature, pressure and H2O concentrations in the annulus of a rocket-RDE and background-oriented schlieren imaging system for flow density gradient imaging to provide time resolved information about the sho ...
