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. Band-Gap Engineered Varistors

    SBC: Angstrom Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Solid-state electronic devices are often subjected to high voltage transients generated by switching, lightning, or electrostatic discharge. These transients can cause mission critical components to fail. Varistors are increasingly used to avoid such failures. The current varistor devices, however, are not well suited for high frequency applications and the increasing trend towards device miniatur ...

  2. High Energy Density Inductors

    SBC: Angstrom Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Inductors are essential components of military and commercial power management and electronic systems. Existing ferrite based inductors have reached a technology plateau that allow only marginal improvements in performance per unit volume. It is anticipated that the future inductor based technologies, such as EMI suppression, would require significantly higher energy density inductors. Fundamental ...

  3. Polycrystalline Optical Waveguide Isolator

    SBC: Jacob M. Hammer Photonics            Topic: N/A

    Semiconducting lasers, laser arrays and other diode-laser devices for both military and private sector applications benefit greatly if used in conjunction with isolators capable of preventing reflections from reentering the device. This proposal describes an approach which can be integrated with laser/amplifier semiconducting material system, to produce efficient non-reciprocal magneto-optic isola ...

  4. Sensors-Adaptive Beam Expander

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design and fabricate an adaptive beam expander that can be switched between two magnifications. Specifically, the beam expander provides diffraction-limited performance for laser radar beams with diameters of 1 mm and 3 mm. The adaptive beam expander is lightweight, and it has no moving parts. Because the beam expander is an afocal system, it operates on both outgoing and incoming be ...

  5. Graded Composite Architecture for Thermal Management

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Design and fabrication of a high thermal conductivity carbon fiber/aluminum matrix composite architecture is proposed which consists of discrete segments of functional areas that can respond to complex design calling for thermal management, low-expansion, structural, and low specific weight requirements. Composites will be produced utilizing Hollow and Planar Cathode Magnetron Sputtering Processin ...

  6. Fabrication of a Low-Cost, Lightweight Cu-AlN Composite for Thermal Management

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High thermal conductivity materials with low CTE, and high strength and stiffness are required for high thermal flux applications. In addition, if these materials are relatively inexpensive, lightweight and non-toxic, and have low vapor pressure to survive in space-operating environments, they will be attractive candidates for thermal management in aerospace structures. Such materials are urgently ...

  7. A Novel High Thermal Conductivity, Low CTE, Low Weight MMC Substrate for Microelectronics Packaging

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I program proposes the development of a high thermal conductivity (470-550 W/mK), low coefficient of thermal expansion (5-8 ppm/K), and low weight (2.9-4.3 g/cc) Cu based metal matrix composite material to produce high performance substrates for microelectronics packaging. The proposed MMC system uses copper as the continuous metal matrix and cubic bor ...

  8. Diamond/W Microcathode/Microcathode Array with Very High Field Emission Current Density

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Diamond has recently emerged as a promising material for electron field emission due to its unsurpassed properties of low voltage and room temperature operation, operation robustness, simple design, and reproducibility. However, the present diamond cathodes, which are microcrystalline diamond thin films deposited on macro-substrate (mm to cm size ) suffer a few drawbacks. Only 1-10% or less of the ...

  9. Nanomaterials for High Performance Rocket Engines

    SBC: MATERIALS MODIFICATIONS INC            Topic: N/A

    The application of high-temperature refractory materials such as rhenium, iridium and tungsten to liquid rocket engines holds substantial potential for improvement in the life of the components. Currently, Ir-Re rocket engines and thrusters are manufactured by chemical vapor deposition. Although this technique has been successful, it is plagued by prohibitively high costs and low rate of product ...

  10. Rapid Finishing of Optics

    SBC: MATERIALS MODIFICATIONS INC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I is to develop a high quality, high speed, cost effective technique for polishing silicon carbide mirrors that are machined using single point diamond turning methods. The finished optic should have a more perfectly polished surface with uniform shape and thickness than is presently being produced. We will achieve this by using two different approaches, a novel non-con ...
