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. Multi-Physics Models for Parachute Deployment and Braking

    SBC: CMSOFT, INC.            Topic: AF18AT004

    The main objective of this STTR Phase I effort is two-fold. First, to develop a robust approach for coupling the flow solver Kestrel with the multidisciplinary software tool AERO Suite in order to enable the physics-based modeling and simulation of the dynamics of Aerodynamics Decelerator Systems (ADS) such as parachutes from deployment to terminal velocity or terminal descent and touchdown, and t ...

  2. Compact CMOS-Compatible Optical Transceiver

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF14AT13

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the research group of Professor Richard Osgood at Columbia University propose to develop a compact optical transceiver based on devices fabricated on a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) platform. The recent development of novel integrated structures in silicon including waveguides, resonators, and photodetectors will enable dramatic reductions in size, ...

  5. Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex Systems

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF14AT07

    In this program, HyPerComp and University of Michigan have teamedtogether to develop a high-order grid generator for Euler and viscousmeshes. The grid generator is based on HyPerComps successful generalpurpose CAD2Mesh software and is being integrated with HyPerCompsHDphysics and U. Michigans XFlow DG high-order solvers. High-order gridgeneration methods are being implemented to accurately capture ...

  6. High-Sensitivity Monolithic Silicon CMOS APD and ROIC

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: AF14AT13

    This work will focus on the development of monolithic SWIR focal plane array technologies using CMOS or CMOS compatible fabrication technology. This will be realized on a Silicon substrate and incorporate APD+TIA arrays and be scalable to Megapixel arrays and coherent receiver operation for capture of the full optical wavefront vector information.

  7. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation

    SBC: COLDQUANTA, INC.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta is partnering with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado, Boulder, to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combine 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 electrometer will ...

  8. EX-SCAN: Autonomous Inspection System for Aircraft Surface Coatings

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT09

    Current methods for inspecting the external surfaces of low-observable (LO) aircraft are time consuming and error prone. Technology that can reduce inspection times and minimize human error will benefit the Air Force by increasing assessment reliability and aircraft availability while reducing maintenance costs. To address this need, Intelligent Automation (IAI) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU ...

  9. Harness Enhanced Awareness for Radio System (HEARS) for Dynamic Spectrum Access in Space Application

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FUSION TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: In this project, IFT and its academic partner GMU developed an innovative Harness Enhanced Awareness for Radio Systems (HEARS) framework and technical underpinnings for DSA systems operating under conditions of imperfect knowledge, and used the framework to address challenging problems in satellite communication (SATCOM)DSA. As the logical core of the HEARS, Multi-Entity Bayesian Network ...

  10. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The U. S. Air Force needs turbulent combustion models that can be used to simulate combustion in actual propulsion systems at both design and off-design conditions, not models that are only useful for highly idealized problems. With this motivation in mind, Combustion Science & Engineering, Inc. and the Computational Combustion Lab at Georgia Tech plan to enhance current capabilities to ...
