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. Multi-Modal Sensor Fusion Utilizing Statistical Dependence and Compressive Sampling

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: AF15AT16

    ABSTRACT: Our goal is to develop theoretical frameworks for efficient multisensor fusion of high dimensional data for target detection localization and tracking. We plan to develop novel algorithms based upon our previous research on copula theory to perform inference with multi-modal correlated sensor data. Copulas describes the dependence between random variables and allow one to optimally explo ...

  2. Carbon Nanotube Technology for RF Amplification

    SBC: ATOM INC            Topic: AF15AT15

    ABSTRACT: In this project, we propose to develop the baseline process to form low source-drain contact resistance to the CNTs. This includes finding the right metal stack and annealing recipe to form good ohmic contact to the CNTs. The goal is to achieve a resistance less than 25 k at per nanotube contact. To reach such goal, we will leverage the interfacial dipole alignment of conjugated polyelec ...

  3. Reverberation Mitigation of Speech

    SBC: MINERVA SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF15AT17

    ABSTRACT: Speech recognition technology is in wide use today and has been successfully integrated in a number of applications. Most of these applications require a microphone located near the talker. However, when a distant microphone is used where the speaker is at some distance from the microphone as in a hands-free communication, or in a meeting room, there is a major problem with the captured ...

  4. Active Control of Scramjet Isolator Shocks (ACSIS)

    SBC: Innoveering, LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: Active control of the shock system in a scramjet engine isolator opens possibilities for enhanced engine performance and reduced engine weight by eliminating excess isolator design margin. A successful system will allow for maximum performance from a given engine configuration and will deliver range and efficiency that exceeds those possible using passive unstart control. Our approach is ...

  5. Multi-Mode On-Board Power Generation

    SBC: EXQUADRUM INC            Topic: AF15AT39

    ABSTRACT: Exquadrum, Inc. proposes to develop an innovative multi-mode power generation system for hypersonic flight vehicles. This system produces the required power output that the flight vehicle demands, independent of the flight characteristics at the time. However, this system will work in conjunction with the propulsion system to augment the power generation capabilities. This is accomplishe ...

  6. Simultaneous Multi-property Planar Laser Diagnostic for Hypersonic Flows

    SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF15AT38

    ABSTRACT: An unseeded measurement technique is proposed for simultaneous spatially-resolved measurements of density, temperature, and velocity in hypersonic wind tunnel flows with the future potential for time-resolved measurement capability. A variant of filtered Rayleigh scattering (FRS) will be developed that takes advantage of unique monotonic relationships between molecular vapor cell filter ...

  7. Surface Deformation Measurements Using Light Modulation Imaging

    SBC: SOUTHWEST SCIENCES INC            Topic: AF15AT38

    ABSTRACT: Hypersonic vehicles will require structures that can withstand highly transient flows and complex loadings throughout the flight trajectory. Shock boundary-layer interaction can excite panels locally and lead to structural failures. Non-contacting measurement technologies are needed to characterize the effect of flow transients (due to pressure and temperature fluctuations) on the struct ...

  8. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to extend MZAs WaveTrain wave-optics sensor simulation framework to model EO/IR sensors operating on hypersonic aircraft. Following the methods we have developed for aero-optical imaging through subsonic, transonic, and supersonic flows, existing WaveTrain libraries will be expanded to include hypersonic flow, shocks, thermal effec ...

  9. Biomimetic Material Solutions for the Stabilization of Labile Reagents

    SBC: Carrera Bioscience Inc.            Topic: AF15AT29

    ABSTRACT: A platform (PHA-fuse) for the stabilization of diagnostic and therapeutic reagents will be established based upon the polymer, polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA). Fusions of a target molecule to PHA synthase, the enzyme responsible for PHA synthesis, will be constructed and used to catalyze the synthesis of PHA granules. These PHA granules will help stabilize the fused target molecules and elimi ...

  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 ...
