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. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: CARBON TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have great potential for high performance RF applications. Theoretical study has shown that the electrical current in a CFET is intrinsically linear. Today, linearity is the underlying limitation in increasing the data transport densities of wireless networks. The complex modulation protocols used to achieve higher data rates requires linear amplifiers. Increasing ...

  3. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied by coke formation. The coke deposits on the combustor and nozzle walls reduces heat fluxes and c ...

  4. Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control Conditions

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N15AT014

    This research will show how data-capable laser communication retro-reflectors integrated with multispectral image processing can provide extreme reliability positioning suitable for full time automatic landing aboard ship of piloted fixed wing aircraft. The positioning system supports the SALRS long-term objective to reduce or eliminate pilot training to perform manual landing aboard ship includin ...

  5. Precision Optical Navigation Guidance System (PRONG)

    SBC: FOMS INC.            Topic: N15AT014

    FOMS Inc. and University of Southern California propose to develop the PRecision Optical Navigation Guidance (PRONG) system to provide continuous, high quality range and bearing data to fixed wing aircraft during landing approach to an aircraft carrier. The PRONG system uses infrared optical communications with advanced modulation and coding to measure range between ship and aircraft with accuracy ...

  6. Hybrid High Ampacity Electric Power Cable

    SBC: ADVANCED CONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N15AT016

    The Navy is interested in developing hybrid superconducting power transmission cables that would carry at least 5 kA of current and have a current density of at least 35 MA/m2. The cable should be able to carry 30 % of the rated current even when the superconducting cable fails. We propose to develop a hybrid superconducting cable, based on CORC cables, which potentially have a current density of ...

  7. Type System for Naval Essential Tasks

    SBC: DATANOVA SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: N15AT017

    Knowledge graphs are information networks with a specific topology. The topology is simple enough that we do not need graph grammars to specify the subgraphs that belong to a mission graph. Knowledge graphs can be modeled as terms of an algebraic data type in a type system called Flutes. Flutes was created by Datanova Scientific to rigorously analyze formal approaches to semantic integration. This ...

  8. Socio-computational Methods to Detect and Predict Bot Activity in Novel Information Environments

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N15AT020

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) proposes to understand social bots behaviors, extract indicators, develop socio-computational models with predictive capabilities to detect bot activity, and implement them in a mature social media analytics software tool. Our approach will use predictive socio-computational models that exploit context, user, friends, temporal, and network features of social medi ...

  9. Design, Reconfigure, and Evaluate Autonomous Models in Training

    SBC: TIER 1 PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: AF15AT14

    ABSTRACT: The proliferation of autonomous- and human-machine systems necessitates the creation of new tools for system design and evaluation. Key among these are simulation testbeds that support interactions between multiple warfighters and systems, and methods for creating and integrating intelligent agent models into simulation environments. We see a significant opportunity to advance the state ...

  10. Environmentally-Compliant Kinetic Metallization Coating Materials for Corrosion and Wear Protection

    SBC: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF15AT31

    ABSTRACT: Future corrosion and wear protection of structural metals on on military aircraft and weapon systems will require advanced development of metallic and composite materials that are not restricted with respect to environment, safety and occupational health regulations. Conventional metallic alloys containing chromium, nickel, cobalt, and tungsten that have historically provided coating pro ...
