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. Passive Spacecraft Coating

    SBC: GLOYER-TAYLOR LABORATORIES INC            Topic: AF18AT011

    The overall objective of this effort is to demonstrate that UTSI’s Nanoneedle array technology can be used to develop a material for application to spacecraft to produce passive electron emission in a space plasma environment. It is envisioned that this spacecraft material will be used as a coating placed upon the spacecraft surface, similar to MLI. UTSI has demonstrated that the Nanoneedle ...

  2. High Speed High Accuracy Artificial Neural Networks for UAV based Target Identification

    SBC: UHV TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF18BT007

    The machine learning and artificial intelligence community has recently garnered much attention for ground breaking performance of novel neural network architectures for self-driving cars. One of the machine learning methods used in self-driving cars is semantic segmentation. In this fashion each pixel in an image is label with a class, allowing for contour-based image segmentation which is differ ...

  3. Low-Energy Adiabatic Circuits for Space Applications

    SBC: SIGNAL SOLUTIONS, LLC            Topic: AF18BT013

    Adiabatic logic-based energy-conserving circuits have potential to significantly improve energy efficiency. Adiabatic circuits recycle charge stored in load capacitance resulting in lower power dissipation as compared to conventional CMOS. However, these circuits have only targeted low-frequency operations. Research is needed to develop adiabatic logic circuits for high performance applications wi ...

  4. A Novel, Microscale, Distributable Sensor Technology for Ionizing Radiation

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: DTRA14B004

    Terrorist use of radioactive nuclear materials via nuclear and/or radiological dispersion devices (dirty bombs) is a serious threat. Therefore, it is crucial to detect proliferation of nuclear material. Critical challenges include: (a) high sensitivity detection of signature emissions from radioactive isotopes, and (b) cost-effectiveness for deployment of sensor networks across large storage facil ...

  5. NEUTRON: Network Enforcement Using TRansctiONs

    SBC: SMART INFORMATION FLOW TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF17BT004

    SIFT proposes Network Enforcement Using TRansactONs (NEUTRON) a dynamic fine-grained network enforcement policy design that captures network dependencies. NEUTRON closes the knowledge gap between mission needs and observed network traffic to increase mission network awareness. Then using that knowledge develops a revolutionary security enforcement policy based on network transactions. It reduces t ...

  6. Infrared Metamaterials for Emission Phase Control

    SBC: PLASMONICS INC            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: Under the first phase of the program, Plasmonics Inc. and Sandia National Laboratories investigated a range of surfaces that yield non-Lambertian emission profiles in the thermal infrared. The second phase of this program will further maturate the designs developed in the first phase of the program. With the vast majority of the analytical work complete, focus in the second phase will b ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Plasmonic Metamaterial Approach to Infrared Scene Projection

    SBC: PLASMONICS INC            Topic: AF17AT022

    As both the response speed and sensitivity of thermal imagers have improved significantly over recent years, new IRSP systems are needed to provide greater dynamic range and faster response speeds. Addressing these issues, as well as producing a cost effective and modular IRSP system will be critical for providing quality scene projection for the next generation of infrared imagers. To address the ...

  9. Efficient High-Power Tunable Terahertz Sources using Optical Techniques

    SBC: Microtech Instruments, Inc.            Topic: AF08T009

    The main objective of the proposed Phase II project is to leverage the technology of THz generation in resonantly-pumped quasi-phase-matched (QPM) GaAs structures, jointly developed by Stanford University and Microtech Instruments, Inc., and create a compact and power-efficient commercial THz source with a mW-level average power. This source will be continuously or step-tunable in the 0.5-3 THz ra ...

  10. Adaptive Integrated Multi-Modal Sensing Array

    SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF08BT02

    Nanoscale infrared detectors are emerging as a potentially powerful alternative to traditional infrared detector technologies. The University of New Mexico has developed dots in a double well (DDWELL) quantum dot infrared photodetectors which have a spectral responsivity that can be tuned by controlling the bias voltage applied. In this Phase II effort, Polaris Sensor and UNM would fabricate a g ...
