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. Enabling Moving Target Hand-off in GPS-Denied Environments

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: AF15AT34

    ABSTRACT: Future conflicts in contested environments will require coordination between teams of manned and unmanned platforms performing ISR tasks. Coordinating ISR tasks is much more challenging in these contested conditions as GPS cannot be reliably depended upon. Consider the ISR task of handing off a tracked target from one platform to another. Reliably performing this task requires at a mini ...

  2. Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex Systems

    SBC: PARASIM INC            Topic: AF14AT07

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal, a team comprising ParaSim Inc. and the University of Utah will examine the feasibility of generating curved high-order meshes from hybrid linear meshes while retaining a given boundary geometry. Specifically, a preliminary design of a software package for creating high-order (up to 4th order and higher) hybrid-element meshes for complex geometries will be developed. S ...

  3. EX-SCAN: Autonomous Inspection System for Aircraft Surface Coatings

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT09

    ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting the external surface of manned and unmanned low-observable (LO) aircraft are time consuming and error prone. Technology that can reduce inspection times and minimize human error will benefit the Air Force by significantly increasing aircraft reliability and availability while reducing lifecycle maintenance costs. To address this need, Intelligent Automat ...

  4. Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex Systems

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF14AT07

    ABSTRACT: We propose here a robust production-level high-order mesh generation software for complex geometries. High order accurate numerical methods are becoming increasingly popular in the present time and have demonstrated a great measure of success in efficient error-controlled simulations for a wide variety of important problems. A curved geometry and mesh generation system is essential in m ...

  5. Transparent Non-Cubic Ceramics Using Magnetic Fields to Control Microstructural Orientation

    SBC: RADIATION MONITORING DEVICES, INC.            Topic: AF14AT26

    ABSTRACT: This effort is a close collaboration between RMD and Alfred University. Our goal is to develop a process for producing optical ceramics with properties approaching or exceeding single crystals. Ceramic processing can provide enhanced performance, lower cost, higher yield, relaxed constraints on size and shape, and materials that are difficult or impossible to grow as crystals. We will ...

  6. Phase Transitions, Nucleation and Mixing Modeling through Trans-Critical Conditions

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF14AT23

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal, researchers from Cascade Technologies and Professors Matthias Ihme and Ali Mani from Stanford University lay out a plan to develop predictive modeling tools for transcritical flows. Phase I of the three phase plan is outlined in detail and extensions are proposed for Phases II and III. Central points of the Phase I plan include: A comprehensive review and assessment ...

  7. Electrically Small Multiferroic Antennas

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF14AT12

    ABSTRACT: We exploit recent advances in magnetoelectric/piezoelectric (ME/PE) composite materials to enable the development of efficient sub-wavelength radio frequency (RF) transmitting antennas. With these materials will be possible to achieve high dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability, slow electromagnetic propagation and low RF loss tangents. Together, these special properties m ...

  8. AFSCN Upgrade Based on Smart Antenna and Cognitive Satellite Radio

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF14AT16

    ABSTRACT: This proposal presents an Air Force Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) upgrade scheme using smart antenna and cognitive satellite radio techniques. On the remote tracking station (RTS) side, switched beam smart antenna, distributed beam forming technique, multiple access technique based on FDMA and/or CDMA are applied to obtain multiple satellites reception objective. On the satellite si ...

  9. Embedded Sensors for Flight Test (Every Aircraft a Test Aircraft)

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF14AT01

    ABSTRACT: Two accelerating trends in military aircraft design and development are apparent: (1) increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, guidance, navigation and control (GNC), etc., enabled by ever-smaller and evermore capable electronics; and (2) reduction in overall size and available space for auxiliary equipment (and associated wiring, etc.) to measure and asse ...

  10. Low Cost Repeatable Bio-FET Sensing

    SBC: TRITON SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF14AT11

    ABSTRACT: The Triton team proposes to develop techniques for fabrication and characterization of high performance biofunctionalized field effect transistors (bio-FETs) for sensing applications. Nanoscale electronic materials such as silicon nanowires, carbon nanotubes and graphene are promising materials for biosensing applications. Field effect transistors (FETs) using nanomaterials have been de ...
