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. Autonomous Landing at Unprepared Sites for a Cargo Unmanned Air System

    SBC: Data Flux Systems Inc.            Topic: N10AT039

    We propose to design, develop, implement, simulate, and demonstrate an autonomous control and sensing system for the safe vertical landing of autonomous aerial cargo delivery system (ACDS). The landing site is expected to be unprepared mountain sides with slopes up to 15 degrees and rough terrain containing rocks and brush. We also plan to reduce the amount of ground equipment required to operate ...

  3. Improved Sensing Using Simultaneous Orthogonal Spectroscopic Detection

    SBC: Applied Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: A09AT019

    US forces are increasingly involved in asymmetric warfare, peacekeeping and humanitarian assistance missions. These scenarios can place soldiers in direct contact with harmful biological and chemical warfare organisms and agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and explosives. Current portable sensor technology solutions rely on visible and near-IR Raman or Fluorescence spectroscopy. But operations ...

  4. Plasmonic MEMS Sensor Array

    SBC: Five Stones Research Corporation            Topic: A10AT002

    Sensor development researchers and engineers have perpetually sought novel methods to reduce sensor size and improve performance. Continued miniaturization of sensors through micromachining has enabled novel applications and introduced new paradigms for engineered systems to interact with the world. The challenge has always been to improve performance while continually reducing size. In the cur ...

  5. Orthogonal Chip Based Electronic Sensors for Chemical Agents

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: AF08T015

    Recent years have seen a shift in threats to US national security. Today increasing focus for national security is management of terrorist activities. Deliberately exposing a civilian population to chemicals and explosives to cause harm represents a looming terrorist threat. Early detection and identification is a difficult but essential element to minimizing the threat. The Seacoast Science/U ...

  6. Distributed Adaptive Control of Engine Systems

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T026

    Aurora and Georgia Tech"s Phase I efforts demonstrated the feasibility of a partially distributed control scheme with separate controllers on the engine core and fan, where the controllers are linked by a supervisory controller. This scheme is representative of the situation encountered in VTOL UAV design and the design of new turbo-props and variable pitch turbofans by the large commercial gas t ...

  7. Fast Updatable Large-area Holographic Display

    SBC: NEW SPAN OPTO-TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF08T001

    Two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic storage is promising for updatable 3D display applications. In Phase I, New Span Opto-Technology has demonstrated novel concepts of both holographic recording technique and recording material system without the use of high voltage. We have ...

  8. DEVELOPMENT OF MICROPLASMA ARRAYS FOR HIGH EFFICIENCY LIGHTING TILES

    SBC: EDEN PARK ILLUMINATION, INC.            Topic: AF08T012

    ABSTRACT: EDEN PARK ILLUMINATION, INC. and the University of Illinois have formed a team to pursue the demonstration and commercialization of large arrays of microcavity plasmas capable of producing white light panels with luminous efficacies above 30 lumens/W. This proposed project will demonstrate the ability of arrays of microplasmas to yield flat lamps of high efficiency, luminance, and col ...
