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. Aided Navigation: Theory and Applications for Sensors and Architectures

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF06T032

    The coupling of GPS and INS is often characterized as loose, tight, or ultra-tight depending on the nature of the GPS input to the navigation filter. Thus, considering the challenge of precision navigation without GPS, this project will test and validate the coupling of sensor (EO, IR) information such as ego-motion and position updates similar to the coupling of a GPS and INS system. This proje ...

  2. Image-based Tracking and Resource Allocation Algorithms for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF06T020

    We propose to develop advanced algorithms and software to collaboratively track people and vehicles in an urban environment using video imagery (visible, IR) from a network of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The tracking and data fusion architecture will have one fusion node in a surveillance region, with a number of UAVs associated with the fusion node. We propose the multiple hypotheses trackin ...

  3. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: FLUOROCHEM, INC.            Topic: AF06T007

    Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. One major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of hydrochloric acid (HCl) as a combustion product and can cause environmental probl ...

  4. Innovative Selective Nanocatalysts in Hydrocarbon RBCC Systems

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF06T019

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and Purdue University (PU) propose to synthesize, characterize, and investigate the efficiency, reactivity, and selectivity of new nanocatalysts in hydrocarbon fuel liquid for RBCC applications. The nanocatalysts will have higher surface area/volume compared to conventional microcatalysts and films, thereby leading to faster reaction rates. Decreased coking will occur ...

  5. Mechanized Skins for Morphing Aircraft Structures

    SBC: TECHNO-SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: AF06T013

    Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi), in collaboration with the Smart Structures Laboratory of the Alfred Gessow Rotorcraft Center at the University of Maryland (UMD), proposes to develop an innovative mechanized skin technology for large-scale area changes in morphing UAVs. The pneumatically driven morphing skin (PDMS) system will exploit superior performance characteristics of McKibben actuators, in con ...

  6. Command and Control for Embedded Systems

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N06T004

    For many military operational scenarios there is an extremely large geographical theater. Providing coverage requires 100s to 1000s of sensing devices. Command and control (C2) of such a large number of devices, to provide time sensitive targeting (TST), poses a difficult technical challenge. Our solution to this problem is to use a hierarchy of unattended ground sensors (UGS). Ultra low-cost trig ...

  7. ADAPT: Allocation of Dynamic Attention across People & Teams

    SBC: APTIMA INC            Topic: AF06T003

    Effective task management is a critical component of mission success. As warfighters are given more information to monitor, however, their ability to detect and attend to critical information and tasks is stressed. An automatic task manager is needed to help ensure that responses to events occur in a timely manner. The foundation of such a tool is an accurate model of human dynamic attention. Many ...

  8. High Speed CMC Laser Machining

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: N06T012

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a high speed laser machining process for ceramic matrix composites. The recent development of high rate, high pulse power lasers and the non-contact nature of the PSI process minimize the damage typical of other laser machining processes. It also enables precise placement of through holes, trenches and identification markings. The goal of the Phase ...

  9. Development of Amorphous Alloy Coatings and the Application Technology for Aircraft Protection

    SBC: PLASMA TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF06T023

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I objective is twofold. During both depot and field repair operations the coating system is removed using mechanical and chemical stripping methods that result in removal of some of the metallic cladding. The removal of the cladding during paint stripping makes the underlying high strength aluminum alloy more prone to corrosion. Thus, the fi ...

  10. Thermally-Conductive Nanocomposite Elastomer Boot System (TCNEBS) for V-22 Rotor Blade Leading Edges

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: N06T013

    The metal sheath used to protect the V-22 aircraft rotor blade leading edge against sand, rain and ice erosion, and provide heating to prevent ice buildup, is heavy, rigid and expensive. An elastomeric boot can offer lower weight, flexibility, abrasion-resistance and field repairability. However, elastomeric boots have exhibited delamination and creep failure caused by high centrifugal loads and ...
