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.

  4. Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS)

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF15AT22

    ABSTRACT: Spectral Sciences, Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories propose a Metal Vapor Ionospheric Control System (MVICS) for on-demand turbulence suppression and control of ionospheric RF propagation. The system uses a lightweight, throttleable directional mechanism for controlled production and dispersal of artificial plasma into the space environment. MVICS relies on three innovations: a nove ...

  6. Multi-Mode On-Board Power Generation

    SBC: EXQUADRUM INC            Topic: AF15AT39

    ABSTRACT: Exquadrum, Inc. proposes to develop an innovative multi-mode power generation system for hypersonic flight vehicles. This system produces the required power output that the flight vehicle demands, independent of the flight characteristics at the time. However, this system will work in conjunction with the propulsion system to augment the power generation capabilities. This is accomplishe ...

  7. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The most promising approach to overc ...

  8. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: Digital binocular helmet-mounted display (HMD) systems are now available that allow high resolution wide field-of-view (WFOV) digital imagery to be displayed on high resolution microdisplays. These digital HMD systems require a low-latency embedded vision processor (LLEVS) capable of implementing the necessary image processing algorithms. An SA Photonics LLEVS will be implemented on next ...

  9. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. Moreover, the thermal cracking of the fuel creates coke ...

  10. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: ATOM INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: In this project, we propose to develop the baseline process to form low source-drain contact resistance to the CNTs. This includes finding the right metal stack and annealing recipe to form good ohmic contact to the CNTs. The goal is to achieve a resistance less than 25 k at per nanotube contact. To reach such goal, we will leverage the interfacial dipole alignment of conjugated polyelec ...
