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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  6. Multifunctional Nanocomposite Structures Via Layer-by-Layer Assembly Process

    SBC: Nanolab, Inc            Topic: AF09BT36

    The goal of the proposed STTR is to demonstrate the feasibility of using a rapid, automated spray layer by layer process, developed by the Hammond group in MIT’s Department of Chemical Engineering, to create polyelectrolyte/carbon nanotube composites for Air Force applications at deposition rates superior to existing layer by layer techniques. This proposal will be led by NanoLab, Inc., a compa ...

  7. Efficient Propagators and Gravity Models in non-Cartesian Coordinate Systems

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT02

    Accurate and timely surveillance of objects in the near-Earth space environment is becoming increasingly critical to US national security. One of the main difficulties in this domain is efficiently and accurately modeling trajectories of the vast number of objects in orbit around the Earth. The orbital trajectory of a single object is typically modeled as a second-order system of equations which ...

  8. Realistic State and Measurement Error Uncertainty Computation and Propagation for Space Surveillance and Reconnaissance

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT11

    Space surveillance is the component of space situational awareness focused on the detection of resident space objects (RSOs) and the use of multisource data to track and identify space objects. While the propagation of the states of RSOs has been investigated extensively over the last fifty years, the correct propagation of their covariance or the more general (non-Gaussian) probability distribut ...

  9. Space-Time Signal Processing for Detecting and Classifying Distributed Attacks in Networks

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT09

    A mathematical framework for detection and classification of weak, distributed patterns on computer networks is proposed. The framework will provide rigorous methods for understanding performance bounds and optimality of intrusion detection methods, while also providing concrete and implementable algorithms. The algorithms will find immediate application in cyber-security efforts, as well as mor ...

  10. 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 ...
