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 Mediator Architectures for Efficient Electron Transfer in Enzymatic Fuel Cell Electrodes

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT03

    Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC systems offer ...

  2. Multi-scale Physics-Based Models for High Strength Titanium Alloys Accounting for Higher-Order Microstructure Statistics.

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT29

    The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of new multi-scale models for linking higher order micro-structure descriptions to failure initiation and crack propagation for high cycle fatigue of high strength titanium alloys. This includes new high temperature materials such as the lightweight intermetallic titanium aluminide turbine blades to be used in the lower pressure sections ...

  3. Modeling and Testing of RF/HPM Effects in a Voltage Controlled Oscillator

    SBC: VOSS SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF09BT08

    Military applications for the use of directed electromagnetic energy, which include high power microwave (HPM), seek to disrupt electronic systems by exploiting non-linearity in semiconductors. While current mode second breakdown is a thermal non-linearity often exploited, it has been demonstrated that a broad class of semiconductors have more subtle non-linearities that can be utilized to induce ...

  4. Theoretical Innovations in Combining Analytical, Experimental, and Computational Combustion Stability Analysis

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF09BT38

    Combustion stability is an important consideration in the design of liquid rocket engines. While fundamental modes of unstable operation in simple geometries are easily identified using analytical methods, recent times have seen these methods greatly expand in scope, applied in semi-numerical format to increasingly complex geometries and flow situations. Much remains to be explored in understandin ...

  5. Ultrahigh Efficiency Quantum Dot Multi-photon Photovoltaics using Nipi Lateral Architecture

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT20

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...

  6. A Li-Ion Battery Tool for Predicting Life and Performance for Satellite Orbit Operations Scenarios

    SBC: GLOBAL AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA08T008

    The expected life of satellite Li-Ion batteries is determined by many factors, including thermal considerations, electrode chemistries, orbit and mission life, DOD, and pulse power requirements. First-principles battery model literature pertains primarily to orbital cycling at moderate DOD under isothermal conditions without variable power loads. Knowledge must be extended to encompass wider life ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Novel protocol for Quantum Key Distribution

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF09BT21

    Quantum cryptography, and in particular Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a secure method to distribute a secret key between two distant authorized partners whose security is based on the laws of physics. Current public key cryptosystems have not been proven to be secure and are based on the computational complexity of evaluating one-way functions. These functions are easily evaluated, but extrem ...

  10. Plasmon Induced Photoelectrochemistry for artificial photosynthesis

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT39

    The Air Force has a strategic need for a fuel source that is renewable (and which does not rely on foreign petroleum sources). Several approaches to a renewable fuel source have been investigated; with “artificial photosynthesis” being one example. At its core, the photosynthesis reaction is a photoinduced charge separation reaction with light being concentrated by antenna complexes onto a c ...
