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. Implicit Level Set Based Software for Generating Geometrically and Topologically Accurate Urban Terrain Models Using Implicit Methods

    SBC: Level Set Systems            Topic: A06T011

    We propose a new method developed by our employees and collaborators for the digital representation of real world objects. This will result in an implicit surface urban terrain model that interpolates raw point cloud data. The method can handle complex topologies and geometries easily. Topology changes pose no difficulties. The key idea involves shrink wrapping an implicit surface around data poin ...

  2. Passive Object Detection System

    SBC: MIRMAR SENSORS, LLC            Topic: A06T016

    Imaging with X-rays and gamma rays is a long established technique. It is possible with recent technological advances that standard transmission radiography may be extended to self-radiography, where the natural radioactivity of the object itself and the surrounding matrix is used as the source of X-rays. Self-radiography is much more complex than traditional radiography, chiefly because it depend ...

  3. Modeling Software and Tools for Reliability Engineering of Micro/Nano-Device Systems and Components

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: A06T002

    Simulation techniques play an important role in material and device design at the nanoscale. Among these techniques, molecular dynamics (MD) simulation has become a powerful tool for revealing complex physical phenomena. However, completely modeling nano-structured materials and nano-devices of tangible size using MD simulation is unrealistic, even when using today’s most powerful supercomputers ...

  4. Bulk Nitride, Exchange-Coupled Magnet

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: A06T003

    The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of using an innovative deposition process for making Sm2Fe17Nx/á-Fe16N2 magnetic materials in bulk quantities. In addition, exchange-coupled nanostructured composites of these materials will be produced. The advantage of this process is that it allows precise control over the deposition ions so that the morphology of the materials ca ...

  5. High-Power Millimeter-Wave Micro-Sources for Communications & Radar Dominance

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF06T022

    The proposed effort is to evaluate the feasibility of a W-band sheet-beam vacuum electronic device that can provide up to 1 kW of peak RF power at a minimum efficiency of 20%. Key elements of this effort are on the generation and transport of the sheet beam and its interaction with the RF circuit. The potential of employing a depressed collector to improve overall efficiency will also be investiga ...

  6. Enhancing IPB with Representations of Meta-information (EPROM)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T031

    Modern military operations increasingly require decision-makers to reason predicatively about adversary actions and the battlespace environment – a task made more challenging due to meta-information (i.e., qualities of information such as uncertainty or staleness). Understanding the role of meta-information in reasoning about intelligence and developing methods for effectively portraying it ha ...

  7. Development of On-Demand Non-Polar and Semi-Polar Bulk Gallium Nitride Materials for Next Generation Electronic and Optoelectronic Devices

    SBC: Inlustra Technologies LLC            Topic: A06T019

    Inlustra Technologies and the University of California, Santa Barbara propose to grow and characterize thick non-polar and semi-polar gallium nitride (GaN) wafers that will act as seeds for subsequent GaN boule growth. In this Phase I STTR effort, Inlustra will first develop non-polar and semi-polar GaN films with smooth surfaces and minimal wafer bowing and cracking. The growth conditions for e ...

  8. Mechanically Adaptive Materials for Morphing Aircraft Skins

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T017

    The main goal of the proposed research is to develop a material with a high modulus ratio (Ez / Ex = 105 ) by the end of Phase II. This material is ideally suited for use in morphing aircraft that require large shear strains of the skin, while limiting out-of-plane pillowing at the same time. The major effort during the beginning of the program will be to characterize Shape Memory and Electroactiv ...

  9. Nanoscale Antennas

    SBC: Nanolab, Inc            Topic: A06T012

    This effort will culminate in the demonstration of a new class of antennas, to allow the coupling of RF signals with nanoscale devices and sensors. An antenna for RF must be millimeters long, and nanoscale in diameter, if it is to interact with nanoscale devices. The aligned carbon nanotubes grown at NanoLab are synthesized in millimeter lengths, have good conductivity, and therefore should make ...

  10. Power Harvesting for Encrypted Wireless Sensor Clusters

    SBC: TECHNO-SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: N06T020

    Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi) in collaboration with the Smart Structures Laboratory Laboratory at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP), proposes to develop an innovative energy harvesting device suitable for integration with electronics for data acquisition and wireless transmission used as a node. The energy harvester will be mounted to a substructure and use ambient vibrations for ener ...
