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. Directionally-Tailored Infrared Emission and/or Transmission

    SBC: Sensormetrix INC            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: It is proposed to demonstrate a surface fabricated using thin film metamaterial designs that can exhibit rapidly varying angular as well as spectral emissivity profiles. The technology enables specification of desired angular pattern at design time, and can be fabricated in large area formats. BENEFIT: The proposed technology will allow directional control of thermal radiation in app ...

  2. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: AHMIC AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    Scramjet engines are designed to operate across a wide Mach number range and typically incorporate isolator sections to provide sufficient back-pressure margin and prevent unstart. As military requirements become increasingly demanding, an active, closed-loop control system is necessary to maintain engine stability and power output. During Phase I, key components of a scramjet control system were ...

  3. Radio Frequency (RF) Filter Tuning Element

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18AT015

    To meet the requirements of the AF18A-T015 solicitation, MaXentric and University of California San Diego are proposing the development of a low loss, high linearity capacitor. The tunable capacitor target is a compact integrated design, capable of a tuning range up to 4:1, with a minimum Q of 80 at 4 GHz, and handling up to 20W CW. During phase I, UCSD studied a novel varactor structure to improv ...

  4. Environmentally-Compliant Inorganic Material(s) for Corrosion and/or Wear Protection of Structural Metals on Military Aircraft and Weapon Systems

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT31

    The proposed project will focus on qualifying amorphous-iron Particle Reinforced Metal Matrix Composite (PRMMC) coatings as replacements for Electrolytic Hard Chrome (EHC) and HVOF WC- Co wear and corrosion resistant coatings on high-strength steel components. These legacy coatings have been identified on the OSD Emerging Contaminants Watch or Action Lists, and future manufacture and maintenance o ...

  5. Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, Phase II.

    SBC: QUANTUM APPLIED SCIENCE & RESEARCH INC            Topic: AF17BT002

    Human analysts are presented with ever-increasing amounts of data to process, taxing the limitations of human cognitive capacity. This cognitive overloading leads to increased likelihood of errors and accidents, with costly consequences in mission critical operations. Consequently, there is a rising demand for more efficient processing of increasingly large amounts of intelligence. Transcranial di ...

  6. Development of Multidisciplinary, Multi-Fidelity Analysis and Integration of Aerospace Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: AF08BT03

    ABSTRACT: Aurora Flight Sciences, in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), proposes to further develop and test in realistic settings an innovative method for representing and managing multidisciplinary design information from a wide range of analysis tools. The practical implication resulting from this novel approach is a mathematical framework to confidently determ ...

  7. Speckle image processing for conformal sub-aperture arrays

    SBC: Optical Physics Company            Topic: AF08T021

    Future Air Force platforms require electro-optic long range imaging systems conformal to the surface of the aircraft to minimize drag and maximize stealth. The long imaging range often means having to compensate for atmospheric turbulence as well as the boundary layer around the aircraft. During the first phase of this STTR project, Optical Physics Company (OPC) demonstrated the feasibility o ...

  8. Design and Analysis of Multi-core Software

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD11T03

    Modern processor design is trending increasingly toward multicore architectures. This is problematic for programmers because writing a correct parallel program is known to be difficult compared to writing the equivalent sequential program. Additionally, a wide body of sequential code has already been developed that cannot exploit the power offered by these new cores because it was written in a s ...

  9. Efficient Multi-Scale Radiation Transport Modeling

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF08T020

    Radiative heat transfer is a dominant mode of heat transfer in combustion and propulsion systems as well as for hypersonic flow encountered during planetary entry. Solution of the Radiative Transfer Equation (RTE), which is an integro-differential equation, places stringent requirements on the computational resources as: (a) the radiation depends both on spatial and angular dimensions, (b) radiati ...

  10. Optically Reconfigurable Smart Deployable Materials for Future Satellite Applications

    SBC: BLUECOM SYSTEMS & CONSULTING LLC            Topic: AF17AT018

    In this proposal, Bluecom Systems proposes to develop a framework in designing and manufacturing smart materials that can be used as adaptive radiating structures to operate at different frequencies, with different radiation patterns, and achieve polarization diversity. The solution proposed, based on optically pixilated Silicon or GaAs surfaces, can be used as reflective surfaces for reconfigurab ...
