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. Gigawatt Nonlinear Transmission Lines (GW-NLTL)

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: AF09BT14

    Nonlinear transmission lines offer new vistas in the generation of high power microwave wave (HPM) signals. All electromagnetic sources use an active medium to convert electrical energy to high frequency waves and ultra-wide band signals that can perform useful work. Traditional methods rely on electron beams for the active medium. Nonlinear transmission lines use nonlinear circuit elements to ...

  2. Advanced High Power Solid-State Burst Generator

    SBC: NESS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF09BT14

    Recent advances in dielectric and magnetic materials have spurred renewed interest in the field of solid state pulse and RF burst generation using Non-Linear Transmission Lines (NLTL) . The NLTL approach to HPM and UWB generation eliminates the need for an electron beam, vacuum system and magnets required in conventional HPM sources. Furthermore, the novel waveforms of NLTL generated pulses promi ...

  3. Improving Software and Data Security in Industrial Control Systems

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: OSD09T003

    Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are critical elements in electrical, water, oil/gas, and manufacturing services involving supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), distributed control systems (DCS), and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). These systems allow operators to monitor sensor data and remotely control field devices. Initially, these devices were designed for closed-network or ...

  4. Plasmonic Logic Devices

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: AF08BT18

    Digital electronics is approaching its limits in meeting the demand for increased processing speeds. Photonics, while promising high processing speed, is lacking integration capacity. Plasmonics promises to combine the information capacity of photonics with the integration density of electronics. The team of Luna Innovations, UCLA and Virginia Tech proposes to develop plasmonic logic devices and c ...

  5. Micro Air Vehicle Tether Recovery Apparatus (MAVTRAP)

    SBC: INNOVATIVE AUTOMATION TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF08T014

    Our team proposes to develop, test, and commercialize a Micro Air Vehicle Tether Recovery APparatus (MAVTRAP). This system operates by deploying an instrumented MAV capture device attached via a tether system from a mothership unmanned air vehicle (UAV). The instrumented MAV capture device contains an integrated avionics suite. Our team will determine and control the precise mother ship UAV loi ...

  6. Efficient Multi-Scale Radiation Transport Modeling

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF08T020

    Radiative heat transfer is a dominant mode of heat transfer in combustion and propulsion systems as well as for hypersonic flow encountered during planetary entry. Solution of the Radiative Transfer Equation (RTE), which is an integro-differential equation, places stringent requirements on the computational resources as: (a) the radiation depends both on spatial and angular dimensions, (b) radiati ...

  7. High-order modeling of applied multi-physics phenomena

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF08T023

    The gap between research in numerical methods and popular commercial solvers in CFD and related areas has been gradually widening in the recent past, particularly in the realm of high order accurate algorithms. At HyPerComp we are advancing a suite of high order codes based on the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) technique that can be used in electromagnetics, fluid mechanics, MHD and radiative heat tr ...

  8. Distributed Adaptive Control of Engine Systems

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T026

    Aurora and Georgia Tech"s Phase I efforts demonstrated the feasibility of a partially distributed control scheme with separate controllers on the engine core and fan, where the controllers are linked by a supervisory controller. This scheme is representative of the situation encountered in VTOL UAV design and the design of new turbo-props and variable pitch turbofans by the large commercial gas t ...

  10. Advanced Computational Methods for Study of Electromagnetic Compatibility

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF09BT13

    The leakage of electromagnetic (EM) energy into air vehicles, and particularly into ordnance, poses a hazard that requires careful evaluation. Under current guidelines, such evaluations are primarily to be carried out through extensive testing of items under possible field conditions, a process that can be both time-consuming and costly. The scope of this STTR Phase I activity is to implement a h ...
