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. Frequency agile THz detectors for multiplicative mixing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT26

    ABSTRACT: A system that operates at room temperature and that could scan for concealed weapons from standoff distances of >10 m would be a tremendous asset for US military homeland security personnel worldwide. THz imaging can, potentially, be used for this application, but it requires the development of a new class of THz detectors whereby the signal to noise ratios are improved significantly. ...

  2. Novel Algorithm/Hardware Partnerships for Real-Time Nonlinear Control

    SBC: Elissar, LLC            Topic: AF09BT06

    The growing complexity of future military systems demands the development of high-performance nonlinear control algorithms. The goal of this proposal is to develop a specially designed software/hardware architecture to enable real-time autonomous closed-loop control of nonlinear high-dimensional dynamical systems. Following the recent success of pseudospectral (PS) computational control methods in ...

  5. A Unique Focal Plane Array Detector for THz and MM Wave Imaging

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT33

    Detecting explosives and weapons under clothing or in hand carried packages, and imaging terrain and objects through fog and smoke are two high-priority needs that can be met using light in the Terahertz frequency range. However, to image concealed threats, and aid in navigation in fog and smoke, a practical, low cost THz camera is needed. Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) in collaboration with Re ...

  8. Theoretical Innovations in Combining Analytical, Experimental, and Computational Combustion Stability Analysis

    SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF09BT38

    The occurrence of combustion instability has long been a matter of serious concern in the development of liquid-propellant rocket engines due to the high rate of energy release in a confined volume in which energy losses are relatively small. Shear layer instabilities and intermittent growth rates of the mixing layer cause fluctuations in the burning rates and result in acoustic waves triggering ...

  10. Coupled Cluster Theory (CCT)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT40

    Single-reference coupled cluster (SRCC) methods have revolutionized our ability to accurately predict molecular energies and properties. As new developments in theory and computer science extend the application of SRCC methods to larger and larger systems, advancements in coupled cluster methods for studying multi-reference systems have lagged far behind. DECISIVE ANALYTICS Corporation has teame ...
