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. Software System Reliability Analysis

    SBC: GRAMMATECH INC            Topic: OSD06SP4

    System reliability is a fundamental requirement for safety-critical weapons systems. A key challenge is identifying reliability problems early so that they can be fixed quickly and cheaply. Reliability problems are often integration problems: integration often reveals that flaws that seemed minor in isolated components but lead to serious system-wide reliability problems. The combination of static ...

  2. Surface plasmon enhanced thin-film photovoltaic systems

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF09BT39

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of surface plasmon enhanced photovoltaic devices that exhibit increased current collection. Photon management, the manipulation of the incident optical field to increase the probability that a photon is absorbed in the active region of the cell, is critical to the development of next generation thin film sol ...

  3. Multi-scale Physics-Based Models for alpha-betaTitanium Alloys Accounting for Higher-Order Microstructure Statistics.

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: AF09BT29

    Modern military and civilian aircraft technologies are pushing the performance envelope through design and use of new advanced materials with superior property combinations. Aircraft powerplant manufacturers are facing intense competition to efficiently deliver ever increasing thrust, while meeting the highest standards of reliability and performance over an expanded service life. These performanc ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. OPTOFLUIDIC WAVEGUIDES FOR RECONFIGURABLE PHOTONIC SYSTEMS

    SBC: Illuminaria LLC            Topic: AF08T024

    In this Phase I STTR, Illuminaria, in collaboration with Professor Erickson’s Laboratory at Cornell University, designed and developed a practical liquid based reconfigurable photonic device photonic switch using low voltage microfluidic pumps and microfabricated optofluidic waveguides. Briefly, the basic element of this approach comprises a stream of high index of refraction liquid (core) micr ...

  6. Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational Environments

    SBC: MacroCognition, LLC            Topic: ST092002

    We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained b ...

  7. New Thruster for Proliferated Satellites Has More Force and Longer Life

    SBC: The Granville Group Inc.            Topic: ST092005

    Granville has designed a new satellite/spacecraft propulsion engine, GREP, delivering over 100.mN/1.0 kW of force from strong electromagnetic energy… more force magnitude and efficiency than existing propellant limited ion thrusters. And, because it uses renewable power from on-board solar/electric panels, GREP offers extended propulsion maneuver life, up to 15 years or more, substantially lon ...

  8. Reconfigurable Optical Elements Based on Single and Coupled Microdisk Resonators with Quantum Dot Active Media

    SBC: Hybrid Photonics LLC            Topic: AF08T024

    In this Small Business Technology Transfer Program (STTR) - Phase II project we will build photonic integrated circuits that perform flip-flop and optical switching operations on silicon platform. These circuits are based on our Phase I work where we have established the feasibility of using coupled microdisk resonators and active waveguides coupled to a single microring resonator to realize bista ...

  9. Modeling Spin Test Using Location Specific Material Properties

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC FORMING TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08T013

    Jet engine disk components are increasingly subjected to higher operating temperatures. To meet the demands of increasing thrust and higher operating temperatures, a newer generation of nickel based superalloys such as LSHR, Alloy 10, Rene104 and RR1000 are being processed with dual microstructure distributions. Fine grain, high strength, fatigue resistant bore properties are contrasted with co ...

  10. Demonstration of a JP-8 Powered Compact ECU

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: OSD09T002

    Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...
