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. Low Cost High-rate Manufacturing of Flexible Explosive Detection Sensor

    SBC: Nanotrons            Topic: N10AT031

    Nanotrons Corporation, in collaboration with Professor Byungki Kim at NSF Nanomanufacturing Research Center at the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UML), proposes to develop the low-cost high-rate manufacturing technique for flexible explosive detection sensors to significantly increase sensitivity of detection of trinitrotoluene (TNT) explosives. The new approach combines cutting-edge nanomate ...

  2. Real-time In-situ Adaptation of Decision Parameters for Undersea Target Tracking in a Sensor Field

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N10AT038

    Network-centric command and control of complex military missions (e.g., anti-submarine warfare, collaborative mine hunting, etc.) calls for cost-effective designs that can dynamically tradeoff multiple conflicting objectives. Often these optimizations have to be carried out at a higher level, and the associated control directives have to be disseminated down to a distributed system, thereby, influ ...

  3. An adaptive and scalable SOA-based network resource virtualization framework for MANET

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N10AT006

    The key innovation of this proposal is to develop an adaptive and scalable network resource virtualization framework. The framework employs simple yet efficient mechanisms to deliver a comprehensive network resource virtualization solution through network virtualization, service discovery/advertisement, and service differentiation in mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). It uses local caching to facili ...

  4. The Deceptive Language Processing Framework: Fusing Top-Down and Bottom-Up Approaches to Deception Discovery

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N10AT029

    The exponential growth of text-based communication associated with the Internet has lead to a vast increase in the amount of unstructured messages that open source intelligence needs to process. This increase has lead to the need to develop methods for facilitating the detection of deception in various forms of text-based messages, from chat rooms, emails, weblogs, to text messaging. Methods are r ...

  5. Wideband Metamaterial Antennas Integrated into Composite Structures

    SBC: JEM ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: N10AT021

    A broadband antenna, having more than a 100:1 bandwidth,is integrated with a high impedance surface that is compatible with the manufacturing processes associated with with Navy topside panel constructions and marine vehicle armor. The high impedance surface (also known as an artificial magnetic conductor, or AMC) can be tuned to discrete frequency bands using voltage-variable capacitors and the o ...

  7. A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel Capabilities

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N10AT033

    Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...

  8. Innovative Passive Magnetic Thrust Bearings for High-Speed Turbomachinery

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N10AT037

    In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposes to use a passive, permanent magnet thrust bearing to alleviate this problem and increase service life to over 1000 hours. Since this type of bearing is non-contacting, it can operate at very high rotational speeds with minimal heat gen ...

  9. Demonstration of a JP-8 Powered Compact ECU

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: OSD09T002

    Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...

  10. Thermal-Shock-Resistant Sensor Windows and Domes for High-Speed Flight Made of Low-Expansion Ceramics

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N08T003

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II proposal from Materials and Systems Research, Inc. (MSRI) and University of Utah (research institution) seeks to fabricate single-phase, polycrystalline tungstate ceramics with densities greater than 99.95% and a mean grain size of less than 1 um. These ceramics have been chosen because of their low thermal expansion and low elastic ...
