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. Advanced Materials for the Design of Lightweight JP5/JP8/DS2 Fueled Engines for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)

    SBC: Northwest Uld, Inc.            Topic: N10AT001

    Northwest UAV Propulsion Systems proposes using our purpose built heavy fuel engine designed and built in the USA for small unmanned aerial systems in the tier 2 & 3 class. We will be adding a lightweight ceramic material set combined with FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and heavy fuel atomizer (IRAD Project) to create a lightweight engine for a SUAS or STUAS class UAVs. The Ceramic material set is ...

  3. Multi-Photon Solar Cell

    SBC: Photonic Glass Corporation            Topic: AF09BT20

    This proposal addresses the attainment of conversion efficiency exceeding 35% in a single-junction solar cell. Non-absorption of long wavelength photons and thermallization of short wavelength photons accounts for the loss of over half of the incident energy in a single junction cell; however, a large fraction of this energy could be captured if the spectrum is first modified by an efficient phot ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. Innovative Approaches to Scalable and Multi-reference Coupled Cluster Methods

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF09BT40

    Increased computational speed and improved numerical algorithms have made computational chemistry an important tool in the development of new chemical compounds and processes. In particular, single-reference coupled cluster (CC) methods, such as CCSD(T), provide an excellent compromise between speed and accuracy in applications involving molecules near their equilibrium geometries, capturing most ...

  8. Full-Response TDDFT on Graphical Processing Units for Modeling Optical Response in Materials

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF09BT30

    Limited computational resources remain a serious obstacle to the application of quantum chemistry in problems of widespread importance, such as the design of new catalysts for use in fuel cells, or for modeling of material and optical properties of liquids and solids. Researchers have a considerable impetus to relieve this bottleneck, both by developing new and more effective algorithms and explor ...

  9. BRDF Analysis of LADAR-based Target Surface Characterization

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: A10AT006

    LADAR light reflection from a target is highly dependent of the spectral reflectivity and texture properties of the surface. Such dependencies could be exploited for target recognition based on surface characterization with appropriate imaging conditions and processing algorithms. Target surface light reflection is characterized by the Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF), which ...

  10. Impedance-based Sensing Optimization & Algorithms for Visualization of Ship Hull Structural Health Monitoring Data

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT042

    The implementation of structural health monitoring (SHM) systems into naval applications has been hindered due to component quantity, including sensors, power/communication cables, and acquisition/computation units, as well as data quality. Particularly for large-area applications such ship hulls, complexity of implied system infrastructure can be impractical, and data can be worthless with attenu ...
