The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Metal-blacks for plasmonic enhancement of solar-cell efficiency

    SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation            Topic: AF09BT39

    This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...

  2. Metasurface Enhanced Solar Blind Ultraviolet Photodetector

    SBC: PHOEBUS OPTOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: A13AT002

    This project will develop plasmonic films that perform the dual functions of optical filtering and electrical conduction for solar-blind ultraviolet radiation (UV) detectors. Two types of plasmonic structures will be investigated, namely nano-hole arrays in an aluminum film atop UV radiation detecting semiconductors. These two similar plasmonic structures support different types of surface plasm ...

  3. Method for Locally Measuring Strength of a Polymer-Inorganic Interface During Cure and Aging

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: A17AT016

    The NMR relaxometry instrument developed in Phase I project will be refined and thoroughly calibrated for nondestructive evaluation of the structure and properties of polymer-inorganic interfaces. The system design, operation conditions and data acquisition/analysis algorithms will be improved for precise and reliable evaluation of the structure and properties of the interfaces formed between dive ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Miniaturized, Power Efficient C-band Telemetry

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: AF12BT07

    ABSTRACT: The overall program objective is to utilize the best available technologies to successfully develop the concept and design of a state of the art C-Band telemetry transmitter that meets or exceeds the performance qualification parameters and size constraints detailed in the AF12-BT07 solicitation. Specifically, the objective of the entire two-phase program is to develop, test, and deliv ...

  6. Miniaturized, Power Efficient C-band Telemetry

    SBC: Quasonix, LLC            Topic: AF12BT07

    ABSTRACT: A smaller transmitter package operating in C-band with greater power efficiency will pave the way for newer, compact weapons to utilize the expanded frequency range at C band. BENEFIT: Reduced payload weight, giving off less heat, with longer battery life.

  7. Minority carrier lifetime measurements in Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS)

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: A09AT005

    We propose the development of a system for measuring the minority carrier lifetime in strained layer superlattices (SLS). Mid wave infrared (MWIR) and long wave infrared (LWIR) detectors based on SLS technology show promise due to the large and inexpensive focal plane arrays that can be fabricated. The devices are held back though, by excessive dark current, which is related to a poor minority car ...

  8. Mission and Information Assurance through Cyber Atomics

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: AF17BT004

    Securboration is proposing to build a prototype tool called CRATE - Cyber Risk Assessment for Threatened Environments, which will take as input mission requirements and run-time transactions, and produce a mission-centric threat map (as opposed to network-node-centric which most COTS tools do) during execution. It will trace the run-time behavior of various processes in the system that expose thos ...

  9. Mission and Information Assurance through Cyber Atomics

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: AF17BT004

    Cyber Risk Assessments for Threatened Environments (CRATE) is a system that produces actionable, mission-level alerts when anomalous behaviors indicative of cyber-attack are discovered within deployed mission-critical cyber-systems. CRATE is particularly relevant to deployment scenarios involving third-party infrastructure, such as deployment to a Platform as a Service (PaaS) provider or other clo ...

  10. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: ST13A005

    Pressure gain combustion has the potential to significantly improve the specific fuel consumption for gas turbine engines by realizing a pressure rise through the combustor as opposed to a pressure drop. One drawback to this form of combustion is the cycl
