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. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. Moreover, the thermal cracking of the fuel creates coke ...

  2. Passive Radiometry Based Aerial Navigation

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF15AT26

    ABSTRACT: The sensor system requirements for image based navigation that uses passive millimeter wave imaging radiometry will be established based on existing RelNav and AbsNav algorithms that were demonstrated to work in multi-modal imagery. Existing flight data will be used to simulate the PMMW imagery for these tests. A preliminary design of such a PMMW system will be created. Under Phase-II th ...

  3. High Performance and Novel Target Recognition Algorithm in the Sparse Measurement Space

    SBC: Applied Research LLC            Topic: AF15AT27

    ABSTRACT: Our main objective in this project is to propose a novel Structured Sparse Priors for Target Recognition (SSPTR) system and to demonstrate that discriminative applications such as data clustering or target detection, tracking, and classification can be solved effectively and directly on the compressed measurement domain without the need to recover the original data. Our proposed sparse-r ...

  5. Terahertz Nano-Radio Platform with Integrated Antenna and Power source

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for nano-scaled ultra-low-power low-cost radios to address field-deployable and massively producible sensing and communication networks in future military and commercial applications. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by exploiting the holistic integration of THz radio transceiver system, on-chip antenna ...

  6. Terahertz Nano-Radio Platform with Integrated Antenna and Power source

    SBC: CREONEX SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A15AT005

    Recent demand for short-range communications has risen sharply for both the defense and commercial sectors. Tactical communications with a deployed sensor network require secure short-range communications and high network density to enable robust data fusion and collaborative sensing for enhanced situation awareness for the war fighters. The THz nano-radio technology being developed in this projec ...

  7. EM-SMART: Electromagnetic Spectrum Monitor, Identification, and Broadcast

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A15AT008

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes to develop and implement a two-fold spectrum monitor and broadcast system EM-SMART (Electromagnetic Spectrum Monitor, Identification and Broadcast). EM-SMART provides the electromagnetic spectrum (EMS) capability to recognize and classify blue force and red force waveforms, and the emulation capability to broadcast anticipated opposing force waveforms. Th ...

  8. Hybrid Battery/Supercapacitor Energy Storage Device

    SBC: ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A15AT010

    ADA, in collaboration with USC, proposes the development of a high energy hybrid battery/supercapacitor to replace multiple heterogeneous energy storage devices currently used by the Army soldier. The hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) will be developed incorporating ADAs high energy supercapacitor and a commercial-off-the-shelf high energy Li-ion battery through an externally paralle ...

  9. System for Precision Direction-Finding, Anti-Jam and Anti-Spoof

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: A15AT013

    Assured position, navigation and time (PNT) require constant vigilance against intentional and unintentional sources of coherent and non-coherent interference. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is especially vulnerable to attacks and must be defended through electronic protection (EP) measures such as anti-jam (AJ) and anti-spoof (AS). The proposed effort will design and demonstrate GPS-based at ...

  10. Fuel Efficient Nanofluid Gear Oil

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: A15AT018

    Pixelligent, teamed with the Tribology Group at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn), proposes a 6 months, $150K STTR Phase I project to demonstrate a proof-of-concept for a fuel-efficient nano-fluid gear oil based on Pixelligents advanced nano-additives. If successful, this will pave the way to develop innovative lubricants for gear boxes that can improve f ...
