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. Advanced Diagnostic for Performance and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: Exo-Atmospheric Technologies LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Rotating Detonation Rocket Engines (RDRE)are being developed to take advantage of the near instantaneous heat release potential of detonation waves versus conventional deflagration-based chemical reactions in combustion applications. However, the detonation product environment is extreme and current instrumentation to measure wall / surface conditions within the detonation chamber are lacking. The ...

  2. Diagnostics for Performance Quantification and Combustion Characterization in Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE)

    SBC: INNOVATIVE SCIENTIFIC SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: AF19AT011

    In Phase I, ISSI will design and demonstrate a laser absorption-based sensor for time-resolved measurements of combustion fuel/product concentrations (H2O, CO, CO2 and fuel) and gas temperature within the detonation channels and nozzle exit-plane of a rotating detonation rocket engine (RDRE). The goal of this STTR is to develop a single sided sensor that plugs into the outer wall of the RDRE simil ...

  3. Ultrahigh-Bandwidth Robust Performance Diagnostics for Rotating Detonation Engines

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF19AT011

    Spectral Energies proposes to design a multisensory diagnostic suite for measurements within elevated-pressure RDEs. This sensor will utilize tunable-laser absorption spectroscopy to measure temperature, pressure and H2O concentrations in the annulus of a rocket-RDE and background-oriented schlieren imaging system for flow density gradient imaging to provide time resolved information about the sho ...

  4. ENHANCE – Enabling Hybrid Anodes with Nano-Carbon Electrodes

    SBC: Cellec Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT014

    The objective of this research program is to develop an ultra-lightweight carbon nanotube-lithium metal (CNT-Li) hybrid anode to enable high energy density lithium ion cells. These CNT-Li anodes will be paired with carbon nanotube enhanced high areal loading (mAh/cm2) cathodes to achieve cell-level energy densities that exceed 400 Wh/kg at the cell-level and have the potential to exceed 500 Wh/kg. ...

  5. Space-Based Computational Hyperspectral Machine Vision using Compressed Sensing Neural Networks

    SBC: Kent Optronics, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT015

    In this STTR Phase I proposal, Kent Optronics (KOI) together with its partner, Rice University, propose to develop novel deep learning algorithms to perform machine vision tasks such as target recognition and tracking utilizing the direct measurements from a compressive hyperspectral imaging system. By skipping the hypercube reconstruction, this combination of hardware and software will allow real ...

  6. Multifunctional Integrated Sensing Cargo Pocket UAS

    SBC: ENDECTRA LLC            Topic: AF19AT016

    Palm-sized unmanned aerial systems (nano UAS) weighing tens of grams have evolved to the point where they are becoming useful to the warfighter. However, their small mass, fragility, and limited batteries still necessitate the use of emerging, low mass/power technologies to meet the full range of potential missions, including new autonomous flight control and collision avoidance strategies, struct ...

  7. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: Electro Magnetic Applications, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT017

    Metamaterials and photonic crystals are engineered composites that exhibit novel and interesting properties not found using ordinary materials. They have been shown to allow extraordinary control over the electromagnetic field, including molding the flow of energy, amplitude profile of the field, phase of the waves, intermodal coupling, and more. To achieve such control, a set of tools and procedu ...

  8. Tunable bioinspired spatially-varying random photonic crystals

    SBC: APPLIED OPTIMIZATION, INC.            Topic: AF19AT017

    The research objective is to develop a tunable spatially-varying photonic crystal (SVPC) to achieve the optical propagation properties (reflection and transmission) of the light through the designed structure for the visible and near IR-bands. The light from this SVPC will be able to focus and bend as a function of the spatial variation of the refractive index, input angle, and state of polarizati ...

  9. Open Call for Science and Technology Created by Early-Stage (e.g. University) Teams

    SBC: FLIGHTPROFILER, LLC            Topic: AF19BT001

    RADAR (and similar direct or observational meteorological measuring equipment) has limitations (inability to measure low vis conditions, line-of-site, limited vertical (z-axis), expensive/heavy equipment is required, etc.). To solve these limitations, a Purdue University team (launched via a SBC called FlightProfiler) has developed a technology that delivers a computer generated X-Y-Z environmenta ...
