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. A LevelSet / XFEM Approach for Topology Optimization of Thermally Loaded Structures

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    The automotive and aerospace industries use topology optimization to minimize structural weight while satisfying functional constraints. However, the industry-standard fictitious material or density approach has been less effective when applied to physics beyond simple structural mechanics. Known issues include: failed numerical convergence or so-called gray material in computed optimal designs, n ...

  2. LWIR Fiber Bundle for Thermal Imaging in Gas Turbine Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF17AT016

    Improved temperature measurements of thermal barrier coating (TBC) components are needed for gas turbine research and development.Imaging pyrometry systems are preferred because they are non-contact and can measure the complex spatial temperature distribution on components.Measurement in the long-wave infrared (LWIR) band is required for accurate temperature measurements of modern TBCs.Fiber coupl ...

  3. Security in Cyber-Physical Networked Systems

    SBC: TENET 3, LLC            Topic: AF13AT05

    Achieving cyber security has been problematic given the general lack of foundational quantitative metrics to gauge the advantages of one security solution over another. This work significantly advances the development of quantitative metrics and the sec...

  4. Spiral: A Framework for Chaotic Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT017

    Computational design is encountering barriers due to chaotic dynamics. The characteristic unpredictability, aperiodicity, and sensitivity to initial conditions in chaotic dynamics requires computationally costly time-dependent analysis. Computationally costly analysis precludes sampling-based optimization, indicating that chaotic systems would significantly benefit from gradient-based optimization ...

  5. An Immersed Boundary Framework for Topology Optimization of Nonlinear Thermoelastic Structures with Internal Radiation

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    Thermoelastic structures poses a critical challenge to designers due to the inherent proportionality of the thermal loading on the structural thickness. This is further exacerbated by structural nonlinearity where any out-of-plane deformation further increases the effective loading on the structure. As a result of this, conventional design optimization procedures, which are typically based on line ...

  6. High speed, multispectral, linear polarization display

    SBC: POLARIS SENSOR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF17AT021

    Several birds and insects use sky features such as sun, moon or star positions, sky polarization and even forest canopy structures to navigate and maintain heading in day or night conditions. To better understand this ability in insects, a sky projector is needed to allow researchers to project realistic sky images to the insect so that insect response can be studied. Polaris proposes to partner ...

  7. Fast Optical Limiters (OL) with Enhanced Dynamic Range

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF17AT029

    The proliferation of commercial, visible and infrared wavelength laser systems is increasingly becoming an existential threat to our warfighters, which drives the need for further EO/IR sensor and eye protection development. Current fielded sensor protection is limited to fixed wavelength filters. Broadband filters designed to circumvent multi-wavelength laser threats are plagued by low transmitta ...

  8. Aptamer-based Nanofunctionalized OFET Biosensors

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: AF14AT11

    ABSTRACT: Researchers are identifying new biomarkers to help monitor, diagnose, and treat growing threats to the human body and enhance human performance. Recent sensor work combining biorecognition elements with field effect transistors (bio-FETs) has been shown sensitive and selective to biomarkers in the picomolar range with continuous detection; however device-to-device performance variability ...
