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. A COMPUTERIZED ASSESSMENT OF TEAM LEADERSHIP SKILLS

    SBC: Humrro International Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCHERS ARE DEVELOPING AND VALIDATING A MEASURE OF TEAM LEADERSHIP ABILITY. OVER THE PAST DECADE, MANY ORGANIZATIONS HAVE IMPLEMENTED INNOVATIVE WORK PRACTICES IN RESPONSE TO GROWING COMPETITION AND OTHER MODERN CHALLENGES IN THE MARKETPLACE. AMONG THESE INNOVATIVE PRACTICES IS THE IMPLEMENTATION OF SELF-DIRECTED WORK TEAMS. TO REAP THE BENEFITS OF THIS PRACTICE, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ORGANI ...

  2. MICROCONTAMINATION REDUCTION IN PLASMA PROCESSING THROUGH CHARGE STATE MODIFICATION

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    PLASMA PROCESSING HAS MOVED TO THE FOREFRONT OF INTEGRATED CIRCUIT (IC) FABRICATION TECHNOLOGY. CONTAMINANTS CONTINUE TO PLAGUE THE INDUSTRY BEING RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE THAN 50 PERCENT OF THE YIELD LOSSES. THESE PARTICLES ALSO ACT TO LIMIT THE FEATURE DENSITY ON THE IC WAFERS. ADVANCES IN CLEANROOM TECHNOLOGY HAVE RESULTED IN THE PLASMA PROCESSOR BEING THE MAIN SOURCE OF MICROCONTAMINANTS. PART ...

  3. PRODUCTION OF EVACUATED MICROSPHERES FOR THERMAL INSULATION

    SBC: IA, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE POTENTIAL TO ACHIEVE HIGH INSULATING VALUE BY THE USE OF EVACUATED GLASS MICROSPHERES HAS BEEN KNOWN FOR SOME TIME. THE PURPOSE OF THE RESEARCH IS TO SOLVE THE PRINCIPAL OBSTACLE TO THEIR USE, WHICH HAS BEEN THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE TECHNIQUE TO PRODUCE EVACUATED MICROSPHERES. IF HOLLOW GLASS MICROSPHERES CAN BE EVACUATED AND COATED COST-EFFECTIVELY, THEIR UTILITY AS INSULATI ...

  5. POLISHING OF SAPPHIRE FOR OPTICAL APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MATERIALS MODIFICATIONS INC            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT PROCESSES FOR MANUFACTURING SAPPHIRE INTRODUCE A NUMBER OF DEFECTS SUCH AS DIE MARKS AND GROWTH ARTIFACTS IN THE AS-GROWN SAPPHIRE BLANK. THUS, THESE MATERIALS NEED TO BE POLISHED PRIOR TO USE IN OPTICS. THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A HIGH-QUALITY, HIGH-SPEED, COST-EFFECTIVE TECHNIQUE FOR POLISHING SAPPHIRE BASED OPTICS. THE TWO METHODS CURRENTLY USED FOR POLISHING SAPPHI ...

  6. DIAMOND COMPOSITES FOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT

    SBC: MATERIALS MODIFICATIONS INC            Topic: N/A

    THE HIGH PRESSURE/HIGH TEMPERATURE (HP/HT) METHOD IS, AT PRESENT, THE ONLY VIABLE PROCEDURE FOR PRODUCING DIAMOND GRIT FOR USE IN VARIOUS APPLICATIONS INVOLVING GRINDING/ABRASIVE WHEELS. DIAMOND POWDERS PRODUCED BY THIS METHOD ARE MODERATELY EXPENSIVE AND ARE NOT ECONOMICAL (50-70 CENTS/CARAT) FOR USE IN APPLICATIONS INVOLVING THERMAL MANAGEMENT DEVICES, WEAR RESISTANT SURFACES, AND CUTTING/DRILL ...

  7. SOLUTION METHODS FOR DIFFERENTIAL ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS IN MECHANICAL SYSTEMS SIMULATION

    SBC: Mechanical Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MECHANICAL SYSTEM SIMULATION (MSS) IS THE TECHNOLOGY USED TO ANALYZE SYSTEMS UNDERGOING LARGE OVERALL MOTION, SUCH AS AN AUTOMOBILE GOING OVER A POTHOLE OR A SPACE SHUTTLE PERFORMING SATELLITE RETRIEVAL. MSS FORMULATIONS LEAD TO A COUPLED SET OF DIFFERENTIAL AND ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS CALLED INDEX-3 DAE. INDEX REDUCTION METHODS (IRM) ARE EMPLOYED TO SIMPLIFY AND SOLVE THESE EQUATIONS. THREE FACTOR ...

  8. TECHNIQUES FOR DYNAMIC LOAD BALANCING IN SCIENTIFIC SOFTWARE

    SBC: OBJECT SCIENCE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCHERS ARE DEVELOPING AND DEMONSTRATING A MODEL FOR SCALABLE HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING SOFTWARE WHICH COMBINES TWO EXISTING COMPUTING PARADIGMS. THE FIRST IS A MODEL FOR DYNAMIC LOAD BALANCING THAT HAS BEEN TESTED ON MULTIPLE-INSTRUCTION MULTIPLE-DATA (MIMD) MACHINES. THE SECOND IS A REUSABLE SOFTWARE DESIGN CALLED A "FRAMEWORK." THE FRAMEWORK IS AN OBJECT-BASED SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE THAT ...

  9. A FREQUENCY MODULATED UV SOURCE FOR MEASURING TROPOSPHERIC HYDROXYL RADICAL

    SBC: SOUTHWEST SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    THE HYDROXYL RADICAL (OH) PLAYS A KEY ROLE IN THE PHOTOCHEMISTRY OF BOTH THE TROPOSPHERE AND THE STRATOSPHERE. IT IS THE PRIMARY OXIDIZING AGENT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE REMOVAL OF MOST TRACE GASES INCLUDING CO AND CH4. SINCE THE OH RADICAL DETERMINES THE LIFETIMES AND, THUS, THE CONCENTRATIONS OF MANY CHEMICAL SPECIES, ACCURATE DETERMINATION OF OH CONCENTRATION IS PIVOTAL IN UNDERSTANDING ATMOSPHERI ...

  10. SIMULTANEOUS MEASUREMENT OF TWO ARBITRARY ULTRASHORT LASER PULSES USING DOUBLE-BLIND FREQUENCY-RESOLVED OPTICAL GATING

    SBC: SOUTHWEST SCIENCES INC            Topic: N/A

    ULTRAFAST LASERS (LASERS THAT GENERATE PULSES WITH DURATIONS OF ~10 PICOSECONDS OR LESS) HAVE A LARGE NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS IN BIOCHEMISTRY, CHEMISTRY, PHYSICS, AND ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING. UNFORTUNATELY, THESE SYSTEMS ARE DIFFICULT TO USE LARGELY BECAUSE ULTRAFAST LASER PULSES ARE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO CHARACTERIZE AND FEW TECHNIQUES ARE CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. THOSE THAT ARE AVAILABLE USUALLY AR ...
