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. Mechanistic Model Development for Gold Contaminated Solder Joint Reliability

    SBC: DFR SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: MDA15T005

    DfR Solutions and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) have formed a team of experts in solder joint reliability and gold embrittlement to perform a series of experiments that will provide the data necessary to create mechanistic reliability models. Critical to any application of these models and of interpreting experimental results is the ability to determine solder joint gold contaminatio ...

  2. CCA-SAFE: A Model-Assisted NDE Tool for Failure Analysis of Gold Contaminated Solder Joints

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T005

    Gold contamination in Circuit Card Assembly (CCA) solder joints leads to brittle intermetallic compounds (IMCs), which is one of the major factors in solder joint failure. The conventional rule of thumb considers 3 wt% of gold (Au) as a safety threshold, which is not always reliable due to varieties of package platforms, solder types, reflux settings, operational and environmental conditions, etc. ...

  3. Gold-Contaminated Solder-Joint Characterization for Quantifying Risk Associated with Gold Embrittlement

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: MDA15T005

    Circuit card assembly (CCA) reliability is dependent on solder joints, which join components to printed circuit boards (PCBs). Board users strive to mitigate risks associated with gold-embrittled solder joints. Enig Associates, Inc. (ENIG), in collaboration with Sandia National Laboratories, proposes to develop a risk-forecasting tool for quantifying the risks associated with gold-embrittled sold ...

  4. Enhancement of Ballistic Missile Defense System Level Simulation Operations Through Multi-core Processing

    SBC: ISSAC Corp            Topic: MDA13T003

    The ISSAC Team propose a novel method to encapsulate legacy models and simulations that allows these components to take advantage of modern, multi-core, multi-processor hardware suites. Encapsulating these legacy codes provides 3 primary advantages to deal with complex systems and systems of systems (Air Force, Navy, Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) ...

  5. Energy Harvesting Fabric

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: A15AT017

    A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...

  6. Using the Conditional Moment Closure Method to Assess the Effects of Turbulence Chemical Kinetics

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A16AT001

    The ability to accurately design and predict the performance of combustion-based machinery like gas turbine engines is important in improving their performance, increasing their fuel economy, lowering operating costs, and decreasing pollutant emissions. Almost all of the flows are turbulent in industrial combustion applications, therefore understanding the interaction between turbulence and combu ...

  7. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...

  8. Novel OSINT Platform for Enhanced OSINT Collection

    SBC: ZUESS, INC.            Topic: A16AT006

    The meteoric rise of personally identifying information (PII) created and shared online is unprecedented. The sheer volume of open source intelligence available on sites such Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, message forums, Instagram, etc. makes the task of collecting and organizing OSINT increasingly laborious for analysts. Zeuss has already built and tested an operational product that addresses this ...

  9. QADE: Quantification, Analysis, Defense and Evaluation System for Resilient and Secure Wireless Communication Operations

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A16AT007

    Wireless communication systems are critical components of Department of Defense (DoD) information operations, such as tactical mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) and control of unmanned vehicles. These systems must offer trusted and reliable mission-oriented information exchange over the air in contested, congested, and adversary battlefield scenarios. The broadcast nature of the wireless communicati ...
