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. Innovative Methodologies for Manufacturing of Lethality Test Articles

    SBC: MRL MATERIALS RESOURCES LLC            Topic: MDA17T001

    Metallic additive manufacturing (AM) is an attractive technology for the production of lethality test articles due to the potential for significantly reduced lead time and manufacturing cost. However, in order to be effective in providing accurate lethality data, the properties of the AM material have to match closely the properties of conventionally manufactured alloys found in real threat target ...

  2. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: EXCITING TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF19AT006

    The imaging vibrometer development will be based on a representative Directed Energy (DE) aperture assumed to be 30 cm. This effort will provide both DE and Combat IDentification (CID), modes for relative short range DE operations, and an ISR Combat IDentification (CID) mode for operation at extended range. A combination of analytic derivations and wave optics simulations will be used to define a ...

  3. Vibration imaging for the characterization of extended, non-cooperative targets

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT006

    Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...

  4. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: IRGLARE LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    The development of a catastrophic optical damage model for quantum cascade lasers describing instantaneous laser damage at high optical power levels is proposed. The model will be validated by comparison to experimental data. Based on obtained results, changes to laser design and laser fabrication resulting in an increased damage threshold will be implemented. The work will ultimately result into ...

  5. GECCO: Gecko-gripper for EOD with Cavitation Cleaning Operation

    SBC: VALOR ROBOTICS, LLC            Topic: N19AT011

    The objective of the Phase I proposal is to investigate the application of controlled cavitation cleaning technology in conjunction with gecko-inspired mechanical adhesion and soft elastomeric applicators for use in non-intrusive EOD operations. This investigation requires the proof-of-concept testing and validation of a controlled cavitation cleaning mechanism, and a soft robotic gecko-inspired m ...

  6. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: MANTEL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  7. High Speed Spinning Scroll Expander (HiSSSE)- Organic Rankine Cycle for Increased Naval Ship Power Density and Fuel Efficiency

    SBC: Air Squared, Inc.            Topic: N19AT013

    Waste heat from Naval diesel generators provides significant opportunity to introduce organic Rankine cycles (ORC) to increase their fuel efficiency. The objective of the proposed effort is to design and demonstrate a high-speed, spinning scroll expander (HiSSSE) ORC as a power dense waste heat recovery system for diesel generators on ships. The system will leverage Air Squared’s spinning scroll ...

  8. Compact Waste Heat Recovery Power Generation System

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT013

    The STTR topic N19A-T013 seeks innovative technology to improve the power density and efficiency of propulsion and power generation devices. To address this challenge, Spectral Energies in collaboration with its academic partner Dr. Rory Roberts at Wright State University proposes to develop a compact heat recovery system based on a supercritical CO2 based Rankin Cycle. At the end of the STTR prog ...

  9. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation (RADARS)

    SBC: COLDQUANTA, INC.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta, in partnership with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado at Boulder, proposes to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combines Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF elec ...

  10. FPGA Vulnerability Analysis Tools

    SBC: GRAMMATECH INC            Topic: N19AT018

    Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are becoming increasingly critical components in advanced electronic systems. However, limited research has been applied to identifying critical vulnerabilities that could be present in the designs deployed on these FPGAs. The risk is further increased by the use of 3rd party intellectual property in many designs.GrammaTech is proposing to develop a Trust ver ...
