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. Power Electronics Thermal Interface (PETI) with Conductive Diamond Plating

    SBC: GLOBAL CIRCUIT INNOVATIONS INC            Topic: AF19BT001

    A growing number of electronic applications within the Air Force, such as devices for power conditioning and distribution, RF power amplification, and high power lasers have been identified for increased heat transfer requirements to maintain operational temperatures at acceptable levels while increasing the performance through higher power. However, this same target research that requires increas ...

  2. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: MANTEL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  3. Power-Dense Electrostatic Rotating Machines

    SBC: C MOTIVE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N19AT007

    Next-generation naval ships will require electric machinery with at least 50% greater power density than is available today. Such machines must deliver up to 10’s of MW at 100-200 rpm with very high energy efficiency, extremely low noise signature, and reasonable cost. Electrostatic machine technology is often overlooked but is perfectly suited to achieving these goals. C-Motive Technologies pro ...

  4. Power-Dense Electrical Rotating Machines for Propulsion and Power Generation

    SBC: CONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...

  5. Power and Propulsion System Optimization

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: N18AT012

    Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) are currently limited in the type of missions they can perform. Limited available power limits which sensors can be run or for how long, and also limits the duration and range of the mission. More efficient propulsion systems would increase the power available to the UUV payload. Improved power distribution systems and control systems would also increase the ava ...

  6. Plasmonic Metamaterial Approach to Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: PLASMONICS INC            Topic: AF17AT022

    As both the response speed and sensitivity of thermal imagers have improved significantly over recent years, new IRSP systems are needed to provide greater dynamic range and faster response speeds. Addressing these issues, as well as producing a cost effective and modular IRSP system will be critical for providing quality scene projection for the next generation of infrared imagers. To address the ...

  7. Plasmonic Infrared Scene Projector

    SBC: TRUVENTIC LLC            Topic: AF17AT022

    Truventic proposes to design, build and characterize a 5x5 array of fully functional MEMS-based plasmonic infrared scene projector pixels which operate at multiple wavelengths to support hardware-in-the-loop testing of missile seekers, forward looking IR cameras (FLIR), counter measure simulation and tracking systems. The approach avoids known limitations of resistive arrays and provides high dyna ...

  8. Plasmonic Cavity Spectroscopic Polarimeter

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08T027

    This Small Business Technology Transfer program will develop a spectroscopic polarimeter-on-a-chip using novel plasmonic resonant cavities sensitive to linear polarization over a narrow wavelength range. Spectral selection will be possible through geometric scaling, with this work concentrating on the visible to near infrared wavelength band. Dielectric gratings with subwavelength period will act ...

  9. Phase-Change Materials for Tunable Infrared Devices

    SBC: PLASMONICS INC            Topic: N17AT020

    There is a critical need for the development of dynamic IR materials that can be used to form device level components and systems necessary for mid to long wave infrared (3-12 µm) applications. To meet these future needs, the team proposes to develop tunable optical elements based around metamaterial surfaces or metasurfaces. Metasurfaces are a class of engineered materials where arrays of sub-wa ...

  10. Passive Millimeter-Wave Imaging Camera System Using Optical Up-Conversion in Sparse Array Configuration

    SBC: NOVAA LTD            Topic: A18BT017

    The objective of this proposal is to enable high-sensitivity, passive imaging system of natural mm-wave emissions, which can be used as standalone or fused with other imaging modality such as conventional IR imagery in degraded environments. This is achieved through a unique antenna integrated electro-optic (EO) modulator, where received mm-wave signals modulate an optical carrier. The optical car ...
