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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N10AT012

    We propose to design a high average power Er:Fiber ultrafast laser system which is pumped at 14xxnm, and at the same time solve other problems related to ultrashort pulses in fiber lasers. The advantage of using 14xxnm pumping is the reduction of the standard quantum defect from 37% to 5%, thus greatly reducing the thermal load on the system, which makes it inherently more efficient. We also inten ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Impedance-based Sensing Optimization & Algorithms for Visualization of Ship Hull Structural Health Monitoring Data

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORP            Topic: N10AT042

    The implementation of structural health monitoring (SHM) systems into naval applications has been hindered due to component quantity, including sensors, power/communication cables, and acquisition/computation units, as well as data quality. Particularly for large-area applications such ship hulls, complexity of implied system infrastructure can be impractical, and data can be worthless with attenu ...

  7. Low-Cost Ball/Air/Magnetic Hybrid Bearing System for Extended-Life Micro Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Nastec, Inc.            Topic: N10AT037

    A unique type of air lubricated thrust bearing called a Wave Bearing is proposed to assist a rolling element bearing to carry the thrust load and to improve the bearing’s life when used in a micro gas turbine engine. The Wave Bearing technology will provide improved reliability, safety and life compared to rolling element bearings used alone, as well as to allow simplification of engine design a ...

  8. Low-cost, high rate, roll-to-roll manufacturing of organic solar cell powered high frequency flexible communication system

    SBC: OMEGA OPTICS, INC.            Topic: N10AT031

    Having realized the bottlenecks in electronic systems-on-film manufacturing, Omega Optics and the University of Texas at Austin propose to develop a low-cost, high rate, roll-to-roll manufacturing process for hybrid electronic systems on flexible substrates. Roll-to-roll fabrication of hybrid systems enables the utilization of the combined advantages of organic, inorganic and other material system ...

  9. Optical External and Intrinsic Fiber Cooler for GaN Microwave Amplifier

    SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc.            Topic: N10AT017

    In this STTR program, Photonic Systems Inc. and Prof. Jacob Khurgin at Johns Hopkins University propose novel optical external and internal fiber cooling approaches to efficiently cool the high power GaN microwave amplifier. The external cooler is a single end, square-shape, Yb:ZLAN fiber with high reflection (HR) coated surface which can attach to the amplifier surface and create a cold spot at t ...

  10. Reduction of Mutual Coupling between E and B Field Antennas in SQIF Arrays

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: N10AT015

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in partnership with the Electrical Engineering Department of the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), proposes to compute and reduce mutual coupling between E-field antennas (in Transmit mode) and SQUIDs magnetic loops (in Receive mode) for improved signal reception in SQIF arrays. For the computation of the mutual coupling in the near field PSI and WPI will use an ...
