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. Development of a Computational Method for Prediction of After-Burning Effect

    SBC: Strategic Insight, Ltd.            Topic: N10AT002

    The research objective is to develop a fully functional computational method for prediction of the after-burning effect of different fuels in a wide range of temperature, pressure, and turbulence regimes. Achievement of the objective requires understanding and modeling of key phenomena including (a) post-detonation response of the fuels, (b) near-field coupling of detonation products with particul ...

  2. MgB2-Coated RF Cavities for Free Electron Laser

    SBC: SUPERCONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N10AT023

    Free electron lasers (FEL) made from Nb cavities offer high performance, but they are complex, bulky, and expensive. For Navy FEL applications, where footprint, power consumption, and cost are severely constrained and reliability is of great importance there is a critical need for an alternative to Nb. MgB2 is a recently discovered superconductor with a high critical temperature and critical field ...

  3. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N10AT028

    Turbine efficiency improves with increased operating temperature. Consequently, the rim zone of disks operates at high temperatures where creep is the main concern. The bore and web zones operate at lower temperatures, where strength is the driving design criterion. Procedures to produce disks that can meet both demands include dual heat-treatment and hybrid disks. A thin transition zone forms in ...

  4. Robust Model for Behavior of Complex Materials during Spin Testing

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: AF08T013

    The objective of this project is to develop a practical finite element-based simulation of spin-pit tests of disks. The performance of disks in spin-pit tests critically depends on localized effects, such as residual stresses, dislocations, and microstructure gradients. Therefore, a two-scale modeling approach is adopted. At the global-scale, the disk is represented by means of finite elements wit ...

  5. Plasmon Induced Photoelectrochemistry for artificial photosynthesis

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT39

    The Air Force has a strategic need for a fuel source that is renewable (and which does not rely on foreign petroleum sources). Several approaches to a renewable fuel source have been investigated; with “artificial photosynthesis” being one example. At its core, the photosynthesis reaction is a photoinduced charge separation reaction with light being concentrated by antenna complexes onto a c ...

  6. Frequency agile THz detectors for multiplicative mixing

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT26

    ABSTRACT: A system that operates at room temperature and that could scan for concealed weapons from standoff distances of >10 m would be a tremendous asset for US military homeland security personnel worldwide. THz imaging can, potentially, be used for this application, but it requires the development of a new class of THz detectors whereby the signal to noise ratios are improved significantly. ...

  7. Simulation Tool for Modeling Weakly Ionized Plasma

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT10

    We propose to develop a commercial weakly ionized plasma modeling capability based off of Tech-X’s high energy density plasma fluid code TxFluids. The new additions will be able to be used to model hypersonic vehicle physics including shock waves, plasma chemistry and innovative techniques for blackout mitigation and hypersonic vehicle control through the application of electric and/or magnetic ...

  8. Enhanced Riverine Drifter

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT024

    The Navy has need of assessing the river environment including bathymetry, flow velocity profile, and navigational obstructions. While improvements in measurement fidelity and reduction in cost have come about by the use of multiple drifters, measurement quality is lost due to convergent drifter trajectories, and cost/risk remains high due to personnel effort required for deployment. An autonomous ...

  9. Innovative Application of Urban ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) Imagery for High Fidelity Training Devices

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N09BT038

    Toyon Research Corporation and Brown University propose to develop a complete real-time software solution which ingests multi-sensor ISR imagery and produces geo-specific, realistic simulated imagery for flight simulators and training devices. The technical innovations enabling this solution include fully automated 3-d model construction from sequences of ISR video frames, and geo-registration of ...

  10. Ultra Fine Grain Steel Alloys by Severe Plastic Deformation

    SBC: TRANSITION45 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10AT001

    This STTR program proposes to exploit the tremendous benefits that could be offered by the development of ultra fine grain steel alloys for application to the production of high performance components for military rotorcraft applications. A severe plastic deformation technology based on isothermal forging technologies will be explored here. The goal is to demonstrate a practical, production leve ...
