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. Modeling Auditory Pattern Recognition and Learning with Gradient Frequency Neural Oscillator Networks

    SBC: OSCILLOSCAPE, LLC            Topic: AF09BT12

    This Small Business Technology Transfer research project addresses the perception and learning of complex sound patterns within complex auditory scenes. The objective is to model auditory signal processing, pattern recognition and learning in the human auditory system. Our novel approach simulates the nonlinear signal processing that has been observed in auditory physiology. By mimicking functiona ...

  2. Efficient Propagators and Gravity Models in non-Cartesian Coordinate Systems

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT02

    Accurate and timely surveillance of objects in the near-Earth space environment is becoming increasingly critical to US national security. One of the main difficulties in this domain is efficiently and accurately modeling trajectories of the vast number of objects in orbit around the Earth. The orbital trajectory of a single object is typically modeled as a second-order system of equations which ...

  3. Simulation Tool for Modeling Weakly Ionized Plasma

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT10

    We propose to develop a commercial weakly ionized plasma modeling capability based off of Tech-X’s high energy density plasma fluid code TxFluids. The new additions will be able to be used to model hypersonic vehicle physics including shock waves, plasma chemistry and innovative techniques for blackout mitigation and hypersonic vehicle control through the application of electric and/or magnetic ...

  4. Adaptive Quantum-Dot Photodetectors with Bias-Tunable Barriers

    SBC: ESENSORS INC.            Topic: AF08BT02

    The proposed research program focuses on design, fabrication, and characterization of quantum-dot infrared photodetectors (QDIPs) which features bias-tunable parameters, including the spectral response, optical gain, and operating time. Wide variations of detector parameters can be realized through the bias-tunable potential barriers surrounding quantum dots. Changes in bias will transform the ba ...

  5. Dynamic PHM Modeling

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N10AT009

    Impact Technologies and Montana State University propose to develop a Dynamic Prognostic and Health Management (PHM) modeling capability and related test, validation, and support toolsets that will enable standardized approaches to model representation, information exchange, and PHM system support, providing for improved integration, interoperability and reuse of developed and emerging capabilitie ...

  6. Storable Clean Ethane/ethylene Nitrous Engine (SCENE)

    SBC: PIONEER ASTRONAUTICS            Topic: MDA18T005

    he Storable Clean Ethane-ethylene Nitrous Engine (SCENE) is a proposed technology designed to provide upper stages and spacecraft with non-toxic, liquid, non-cryogenic, high-performance propulsion with an Isp on the order of 300 seconds. The propellant components are stored as liquids under their saturated vapor pressures. With the SCENE, nitrous oxide is used as an autogenously pressurized oxidiz ...

  7. Novel Surface Preparation Methods for Existing Metallic Structures

    SBC: ECOSIL TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: MDA13T010

    The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of novel surface preparation methods that are easier to apply on metal substrates in various field environments while still enhancing the corrosion protective performance of topcoats. This is made possible by the characteristics of a patented pretreatment technology developed at Ecosil that can be spray or immersion applied. This novel ...

  8. Hypergolic Hydrocarbon Engine

    SBC: Exo-Atmospheric Technologies LLC            Topic: MDA18T005

    Development of novel propulsion systems in the past two decades has focused almost exclusively on cryogenic boost-phase systems (LOX/LH2, LOX/LCH4, and LOX/RP-1) for launchers and uppers stage engines, and Attitude / Reaction Control Systems (A/RCS) for in-space applications using green monopropellants such AF-M315E or LMP-103S. Basic research and development of scalable, non-toxic, non-cryogenic, ...

  9. Metal-blacks for plasmonic enhancement of solar-cell efficiency

    SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation            Topic: AF09BT39

    This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...

  10. M&S Uncertainty Quantification

    SBC: Applied Biomathematics Inc            Topic: MDA12T007

    An emerging consensus in engineering holds that aleatory uncertainty should be propagated by traditional methods of probability theory but that epistemic uncertainty may require methods that do not confuse incertitude with variability by requiring every possibility be associated with a probability that it occurs. Therefore, although Monte Carlo shells that re-run calculations many times while var ...
