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. Combustion Stability Innovations for Liquid Rocket

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: AF06T005

    Combustion instability in liquid rocket engines (LREs) has manifested in nearly all LRE development programs. While the driving mechanisms of combustion instability are vast and coupled, in all instances, the net result is significant cost and schedule over-runs. In today’s business environment, such over-runs are rarely tolerated and generally result in program cancellations. Development of hig ...

  2. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: AF06T007

    Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. The major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of large amounts of HCl as a combustion product and causes severe environmental proble ...

  3. High resolution multispectral imaging with plasmon lensing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06T006

    It is desirable to make high resolution imagers that simultaneously acquire multispectral information from the same spatial locations; doing so enables a number of target detection and tracking applications. Currently, image resolution is limited by the pixel pitch which cannot be reduced below optical diffraction and carrier diffusion limited values, and by the need to have different pixels resp ...

  4. Deposition of Amorphous Aluminum Alloys as a Replacement for Aluminum Cladding

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T023

    The protective properties of the oxide films that form on aluminum alloys can break down locally and allow extensive corrosion. An amorphous alloy system recently developed at the University of Virginia is promising as an environmentally compliant metal cladding. We propose a new method for converting alloy powder into coatings. This technique does not require large standoffs and has very high hea ...

  5. Novel, High Power, W-band, Meander Line TWT

    SBC: CALABAZAS CREEK RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF06T022

    This proposal contains innovative, traveling-wave tube (TWT) designs compatible with three-dimensional (3D) micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) fabrication techniques for millimeter-wave applications. The development will focus on novel planar interaction circuits; long life, high current density electron guns; and compact magnet configurations. The ultimate goal will be high power, efficient, ...

  6. Enhancing IPB with Representations of Meta-information (EPROM)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T031

    Modern military operations increasingly require decision-makers to reason predicatively about adversary actions and the battlespace environment – a task made more challenging due to meta-information (i.e., qualities of information such as uncertainty or staleness). Understanding the role of meta-information in reasoning about intelligence and developing methods for effectively portraying it ha ...

  7. Mechanically Adaptive Materials for Morphing Aircraft Skins

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T017

    The main goal of the proposed research is to develop a material with a high modulus ratio (Ez / Ex = 105 ) by the end of Phase II. This material is ideally suited for use in morphing aircraft that require large shear strains of the skin, while limiting out-of-plane pillowing at the same time. The major effort during the beginning of the program will be to characterize Shape Memory and Electroactiv ...

  8. Low-Cost, Laser Process for Synthesizing Nanolayered Solar Cells

    SBC: NANOTRON            Topic: AF06T026

    A low-cost laser process for synthesizing nanolayers in solar cells is proposed. The net effect of these nanolayers is a wide absorption of the solar spectrum. In this proposed process a laser is used to form many p-n junctions in a thin, lightly doped wafer. Each p-n junction formed will be unique so that each p-n junction converts a different range of the sunlight’s spectrum into current.

  9. Flex-Skins Using Cellular Cores (XSCL)

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF06T013

    Morphing aircraft structures have been under focused development over the last five years, primarily under DARPA and Air Force sponsorship. NextGen has been a leader in this effort; prior and on-going work by the NextGen team has identified significant technology barriers which need fundamental understanding as well as innovative solutions. Key among these is the development of skins which have in ...

  10. Combustion Stability Innovations for Liquid Rocket

    SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF06T005

    The proposed effort can provide the framework for a unified modeling & simulation program to substantially improve the capability for understanding, analyzing, and predicting the underlying mechanisms dictating the combustion stability characteristics of liquid-propellant rocket engines. Emphasis will be placed on the effects of atomization, mixing, and distributed combustion of liquid oxygen (LO ...
