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. Terahertz cyber security testing using artificial intelligence (FA-002)

    SBC: ELECTRONICS OF THE FUTURE, INC.            Topic: AF19BT001

    The focus of this proposal is FA-002 - artificial intelligence (AI), which will be used for the hardware cyber security. AI will link the THz and sub-THz responses at the pins to the defects and deviations from design of the integrated circuits under test. An increasing complexity of digital and mixed-signal systems makes establishing the authenticity of a chip to be a key problem. New rapid, inex ...

  2. Terahertz Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF09BT33

    Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...

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

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF09BT38

    Combustion stability is an important consideration in the design of liquid rocket engines. While fundamental modes of unstable operation in simple geometries are easily identified using analytical methods, recent times have seen these methods greatly expand in scope, applied in semi-numerical format to increasingly complex geometries and flow situations. Much remains to be explored in understandin ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Theoretical Innovations in Combustion Stability Research: Integrated Analysis and Computation

    SBC: Kassoy Innovative Science Solutions            Topic: AF09BT38

    Quantitative predictions of reactive flow dynamics from large-scale simulations of Liquid Rocket Engines (LRE) appear to be model dependent. Relationships and coupling among the dominant mechanisms most responsible for destabilization are obscured by the complexities of the model and subtle consequences of inherent ad hoc approximations not supported by mathematical rationale. The reliability of ...

  6. Thermoelectric material-coated carbon nanotubes as high conductivity thermal interface materials

    SBC: ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF09BT22

    The ever-decreasing size of the electronic microchips and the ever-increasing density of electronic components required to support future Air Force platforms are creating the problem of substantial localized heat generation that can impair component operation. State of the art thermal interface materials (TIMs), that are used to dissipate heat from the source to the spreader in a microchip, are se ...

  7. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Two variants of laser-based Rayleigh scattering will be investigated, each of wh...

  8. Three-Dimensional Measurement of Fluid Density Distribution

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            Topic: AF16AT06

    We propose to develop a 3D tomographic background-orientated Schlieren measurement technique, including hardware setup and post-processing software to produce 3D visualization of compressible flow features in subsonic, transonic, and supersonic wind tunn...

  9. Toolset For Prediction of Carbon-Carbon Aeroshell Properties Based On Constituent Materials And Manufacturing Process Parameters

    SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF19AT021

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are used in the fabrication of aeroshells and thermal protection systems (TPS) in hypersonic and atmospheric reentry applications because they maintain their strength at elevated temperatures and have desirable thermal conductivity properties. Although these materials have been used in mission-critical components for decades, the effects of variations in processing m ...

  10. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...
