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. Passive Acoustic Cued Electro-Optical (ACE-O) Detect and Avoid For sUAS

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N21AT003

    Detecting and Avoiding (DAA) manned aircraft from small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (sUAS) remains the unsolved problem for safe integration of sUAS into civil airspaces where Navy UAS must pay Due Regard to the laws of civil aviation. The difficulties are manifold. The solution requires both ultra-low SWaP sensors that track aircraft over long ranges, providing 360o field-of-regard (FOR), and often ...

  2. Integrated Reduced-Expansion Microchannel Cooling for SiC Power Modules

    SBC: MICRO COOLING CONCEPTS            Topic: N21AT012

    High power semiconductor devices suffer from difficulty in dissipating heat and thermal stresses. Silicon carbide-based power modules, in particular, have increasingly challenging heat loads despite their high efficiencies. In general terms, the module packaging methods used to improve cooling (moving metal heatsinks closer to the die) also increase thermal stresses, and the methods used to reduce ...

  3. Novel Thermal Management Solutions for Advanced Power Converter Applications

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: N21AT012

    Advancements in electronic warfare driven by sophisticated sensors and weapons are pushing shipboard power distribution systems to higher voltage, more power dense solutions. Reduced cost and increased flexibility necessitate solutions that are rapidly scalable and are characterized by longer life and lower maintenance. These objectives are in conflict, as increased power density reduces life and ...

  4. The use of modulated radiation pressure in target detection and classification

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N21AT010

    Both acoustic and electromagnetic waves exert forces of radiation on targets in their path of propagation. The radiation force (pressure) results from the change in wave momentum due to scattering by the target, averaged over one period of oscillation.  Modulated radiation pressure (MRP) utilizes the acoustic radiation force by using a double-sided suppressed carrier modulated (DSB-SCM) incident ...

  6. PARTEL: Periscope video Analysis using Reinforcement and TransfEr Learning

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N20AT007

    We propose a suite of video processing algorithms utilizing the machine learning (ML) techniques of artificial intelligence (AI) reinforcement learning, deep learning, and transfer learning to process submarine imagery obtained by means of periscope cameras. Machine learning (ML) can help in addressing the challenge of human failure of assessing the data of periscope imagery. Though pre-tuned blac ...

  7. Accelerated Burn-In Process for High Power Quantum Cascade Lasers to Reduce Total Cost of Ownership

    SBC: Adtech Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N20BT029

    Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) are one of the most versatile sources of radiation in the mid-infrared range and have found applications in a variety of fields. Despite their widespread adoption, one of the main hurdles holding QCLs back from large volume manufacturing is the large cost of ownership. While QCLs, like most semiconductor devices based on III-V compounds, can leverage the economies of ...
