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. 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...

  2. RAPID RECONSTITUTION FOR GROUND-BASED OPTICAL SSA CAPABILITY FOR GEO, HEO AND MEO

    SBC: J.T. MCGRAW AND ASSOCIATES, LLC            Topic: AF16AT05

    Commercially-derived telescope systems, consisting mostly of commercially available components assembled to optimally meet space surveillance goals, stand ready to temporarily replace, supplement and/or augment existing optical surveillance systems. In t...

  3. Chalcogenide Glass Mid-IR Optic Development

    SBC: Rochester Precision Optics, LLC            Topic: AF15AT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop a fast axis collimating lens for quantum cascade lasers (QCL) which emit in the midwave-infrared (MWIR) range. These lenses must withstand the stress of both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed laser emission. These high laser powers may cause ablation of lens material reducing effectiveness of the optic and leading to failure. Thus, a high damage ...

  4. Broad Spectrum Optical Property Characterization

    SBC: SPECTRAL MOLECULAR IMAGING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT12

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a flexible, low-cost, integrated and sensitive broad spectrum optical property characterization system. We propose a hyperspectral imager designed for operation in the 300nm 2000nm spectral region with state-of-the-art spectral and spatial resolution through the use of a high density array of high finesse (F = 1000) tuna ...

  6. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: CARBON TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have great potential for high performance RF applications. Theoretical study has shown that the electrical current in a CFET is intrinsically linear. Today, linearity is the underlying limitation in increasing the data transport densities of wireless networks. The complex modulation protocols used to achieve higher data rates requires linear amplifiers. Increasing ...

  7. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: MINERVA SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Speech recognition technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated in a number of applications. Most of these applications require a microphone located near the talker. However, when a distant microphone is used where the speaker is at some distance from the microphone as in a hands-free communication, or in a meeting room, there is a major problem with the captured ...

  8. Active Control of Scramjet Isolator Shocks (ACSIS)

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Active control of the shock system in a scramjet engine isolator opens possibilities for enhanced engine performance and reduced engine weight by eliminating excess isolator design margin. A successful system will allow for maximum performance from a given engine configuration and will deliver range and efficiency that exceeds those possible using passive unstart control. Our approach is ...

  9. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied by coke formation. The coke deposits on the combustor and nozzle walls reduces heat fluxes and c ...

  10. Spectrum Sensing and Sharing by Cognitive Radios in Position, Navigation and Timing (PNT) Systems

    SBC: Innoflight, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT23

    ABSTRACT: The next-generation Global Positioning System (GPS) in congested and contested environments is expected to exploit Spectrum Holes (SH) in order to provide uninterrupted Position Navigation and Timing (PNT) service worldwide. Innoflight has teamed with the Air Force Institute of Technologys (AFITs) Autonomy and Navigation Technology (ANT) Center to develop a system based on cognitive radi ...
