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. Prototype for Rapid Reconstitution for Ground-based Space Situational Awareness Capability for Near-geosynchronous Objects

    SBC: DFM Engineering Inc            Topic: AF16AT05

    We propose to research the feasibility of rapidly reconstituting a ground based sensor system for space situational awareness with a large fraction of the capability of the GEODSS sensor system. This system can be deployed quickly to a GEODSS site where ...

  2. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. Moreover, the thermal cracking of the fuel creates coke ...

  3. Power Generation for Long Duration Hypersonic Platforms

    SBC: Atrex Energy, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT39

    ABSTRACT: Acumentrics, Wright State, and GoHypersonic are partnering to deliver a robust solution to the need for power generation for long duration hypersonic platforms. This solution considers not only the direct generation of power using a highly efficiency fuel cell package, but overall vehicle requirements. This work utilizes existing commercial technology in developing this unique solution. ...

  5. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The U. S. Air Force needs turbulent combustion models that can be used to simulate combustion in actual propulsion systems at both design and off-design conditions, not models that are only useful for highly idealized problems. With this motivation in mind, Combustion Science & Engineering, Inc. and the Computational Combustion Lab at Georgia Tech plan to enhance current capabilities to ...

  6. Phase Transitions, Nucleation and Mixing Modeling through Trans-Critical Conditions

    SBC: CASCADE TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF14AT23

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal, researchers from Cascade Technologies and Professors Matthias Ihme and Ali Mani from Stanford University lay out a plan to develop predictive modeling tools for transcritical flows. Phase I of the three phase plan is outlined in detail and extensions are proposed for Phases II and III. Central points of the Phase I plan include: A comprehensive review and assessment ...

  7. Passive Radiometry Based Aerial Navigation

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF15AT26

    ABSTRACT: The sensor system requirements for image based navigation that uses passive millimeter wave imaging radiometry will be established based on existing RelNav and AbsNav algorithms that were demonstrated to work in multi-modal imagery. Existing flight data will be used to simulate the PMMW imagery for these tests. A preliminary design of such a PMMW system will be created. Under Phase-II th ...

  8. Orientation-patterned Semiconductor Crystals with Low Insertion Loss and High Resistance to Laser Damage

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF18AT016

    The Air Force needs tunable laser systems with high average power in the mid-infrared region of the spectrum for military applications including defense against heat-seeking missiles.Currently-fieldedlaser systems, based on nonlinear frequency conversion in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN), have limited optical power at wavelengths between 4 m and 5 m because of intrinsic absorption in th ...

  9. Open Standard for Display Agnostic 3D Streaming (DA3DS)

    SBC: Third Dimension Technologies LLC            Topic: AF16AT07

    The Air Force has identified a need for the creation of a common streaming model for 3D data that is agnostic to the display technology. To address this need, Third Dimension Technologies (TDT) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) propose to form a c...
