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, Laser Process for Synthesizing Nanolayered Solar Cells

    SBC: NANOTRON            Topic: AF06T026

    A low-cost laser process for synthesizing nanolayers in solar cells is proposed. The net effect of these nanolayers is a wide absorption of the solar spectrum. In this proposed process a laser is used to form many p-n junctions in a thin, lightly doped wafer. Each p-n junction formed will be unique so that each p-n junction converts a different range of the sunlight’s spectrum into current.

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Deposition of Amorphous Aluminum Alloys as a Replacement for Aluminum Cladding

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T023

    The protective properties of the oxide films that form on aluminum alloys can break down locally and allow extensive corrosion. An amorphous alloy system recently developed at the University of Virginia is promising as an environmentally compliant metal cladding. We propose a new method for converting alloy powder into coatings. This technique does not require large standoffs and has very high hea ...

  5. Novel, High Power, W-band, Meander Line TWT

    SBC: CALABAZAS CREEK RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF06T022

    This proposal contains innovative, traveling-wave tube (TWT) designs compatible with three-dimensional (3D) micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques for millimeter-wave applications. The development will focus on novel planar interaction circuits; long life, high current density electron guns; and compact magnet configurations. The ultimate goal will be high power, efficient, ...

  6. High resolution multispectral imaging with plasmon lensing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T006

    It is desirable to make high resolution imagers that simultaneously acquire multispectral information from the same spatial locations; doing so enables a number of target detection and tracking applications. Currently, image resolution is limited by the pixel pitch which cannot be reduced below optical diffraction and carrier diffusion limited values, and by the need to have different pixels resp ...

  7. Coaxial High Energy Thruster for Rapid Maneuvering of Space Assets

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: AF06T001

    Busek Co. Inc. and Stanford University propose to jointly develop and test a high power plasma propulsion concept called the Coaxial High EnerGy (CHENG) thruster. This high efficiency (> 85%) pulsed system will be capable of average thrust levels commensurate to chemical propulsion (10^4 N/m^2), but with an Isp comparable to electrostatic propulsion (4000-50,000 s). Both thrust and Isp will be va ...

  8. A High Current Microfabricated Carbon Nanotube Field Emitter Array with Ballasting

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: AF06T018

    High current density carbon nanotube-based field emission arrays with uniform emission will be developed under this program. Working in conjunction with MIT, microfabrication techniques will be used to produce high density arrays of CNT emitters on substrates which incorporate feedback to ensure uniformity of emission between emitters. The feedback techniques employed will minimize thermal effec ...

  9. Hearing Protection for High-Noise Environments

    SBC: MONOPOLE RESEARCH            Topic: AF06T035

    We propose to develop high-fidelity numerical simulation tools to be used in the analysis and assessment of bone conduction of sound in the human head and the desigh of noise protection devices. The proposed approach utilizes boundary and volumetric integral equation methods, and will constitute an extension of our currently developed approach from acoustics to coupled elasticity-theory and acou ...

  10. Commercial Methods for Production of Orientation Patterned GaAs

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF06T010

    The Air Force desires development of a commercial production source for nonlinear optical (NLO) gallium arsenide semiconductor crystals with orientation patterning, i.e., OP-GaAs. The need for these materials is driven primarily by applications for NLO laser frequency converters in Infrared Counter Measures (IRCM). The proposed Phase I project will demonstrate feasibility for a fabrication metho ...
