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. 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 ...

  2. Electrically Small Multiferroic Antennas

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF14AT12

    ABSTRACT: We exploit recent advances in magnetoelectric/piezoelectric (ME/PE) composite materials to enable the development of efficient sub-wavelength radio frequency (RF) transmitting antennas. With these materials will be possible to achieve high dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability, slow electromagnetic propagation and low RF loss tangents. Together, these special properties m ...

  3. Embedded Sensors for Flight Test (Every Aircraft a Test Aircraft)

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF14AT01

    ABSTRACT: Two accelerating trends in military aircraft design and development are apparent: (1) increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, guidance, navigation and control (GNC), etc., enabled by ever-smaller and evermore capable electronics; and (2) reduction in overall size and available space for auxiliary equipment (and associated wiring, etc.) to measure and asse ...

  5. Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex Systems

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF14AT07

    ABSTRACT: We propose here a robust production-level high-order mesh generation software for complex geometries. High order accurate numerical methods are becoming increasingly popular in the present time and have demonstrated a great measure of success in efficient error-controlled simulations for a wide variety of important problems. A curved geometry and mesh generation system is essential in m ...

  6. Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex Systems

    SBC: PARASIM INC            Topic: AF14AT07

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal, a team comprising ParaSim Inc. and the University of Utah will examine the feasibility of generating curved high-order meshes from hybrid linear meshes while retaining a given boundary geometry. Specifically, a preliminary design of a software package for creating high-order (up to 4th order and higher) hybrid-element meshes for complex geometries will be developed. S ...

  7. EX-SCAN: Autonomous Inspection System for Aircraft Surface Coatings

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT09

    ABSTRACT: Current methods for inspecting the external surface of manned and unmanned low-observable (LO) aircraft are time consuming and error prone. Technology that can reduce inspection times and minimize human error will benefit the Air Force by significantly increasing aircraft reliability and availability while reducing lifecycle maintenance costs. To address this need, Intelligent Automat ...

  8. High-Sensitivity Monolithic Silicon CMOS APD and ROIC

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: AF14AT13

    ABSTRACT: In this effort, Freedom Photonics will develop a high-sensitivity high-resolution coherent imaging system based on a Si avalanche photodiode (APD) array and corresponding bias and read-out electronics. This will be a monolithic APD and ROIC (readout-integrated-circuit) focal plane array (FPA) system. We start from a proven high-performance CMOS electronics backplane and build the photon ...
