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.

  3. 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 ...

  4. Signal Processing with Memristive Devices

    SBC: MICROXACT INC.            Topic: AF09BT23

    To streamline data processing in, e.g., hyperspectral imaging, new massively parallel data processing circuits are needed. The team of MicroXact Inc. and UC Santa Barbara propose to develop circuits based on completely novel computing paradigm, which could be extremely efficient (i.e. dense, relatively inexpensive, and consume very little power) for massively parallel signal processing. We offer t ...

  5. Plasmonics for Solar Energy Generation

    SBC: MICROXACT INC.            Topic: AF09BT39

    Photovoltaics, while promising clean and reliable energy source, is not yet compatible with fossil energy for most applications. Organic-based solar cells have potential to reduce the cost of solar energy due to low-cost active materials, high-throughput reel-to-reel deposition technologies, low-temperature processing and application versatility. Currently organic photovoltaics (OPV) cannot commer ...

  7. A Unique Focal Plane Array Detector for THz and MM Wave Imaging

    SBC: INTELLIGENT OPTICAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT33

    Detecting explosives and weapons under clothing or in hand carried packages, and imaging terrain and objects through fog and smoke are two high-priority needs that can be met using light in the Terahertz frequency range. However, to image concealed threats, and aid in navigation in fog and smoke, a practical, low cost THz camera is needed. Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) in collaboration with Re ...

  9. Surface plasmon enhanced thin-film photovoltaic systems

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT39

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of surface plasmon enhanced photovoltaic devices that exhibit increased current collection. Photon management, the manipulation of the incident optical field to increase the probability that a photon is absorbed in the active region of the cell, is critical to the development of next generation thin film sol ...

  10. VLSI Compatible Silicon-on-Insulator Plasmonic Components

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF08BT18

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop ultradense, low-power plasmonic integration components and devices for on-chip manipulation and processing of optical signals. Both passive and active components will be studied. Detailed performance predictions will be obtained through finite element modeling (FEM) of the harmonic Maxwell’s equations. The FEM provides detai ...
