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. Terahertz Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF09BT33

    Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...

  3. The Message in the Medium: Predicting influence and attention using attitude annotation and salience modeling

    SBC: Ntrepid Corporation            Topic: ST12B002

    We propose scalable, linear-time models and algorithms for online social network analysis that remedy limitations of current state-of-the-art models by creating a capability for tracking, predicting affiliations, and roles of participants in and across online communities. The model goes beyond simple clustering and community detection by using more of the message in the media, i.e. by taking into ...

  4. Theoretical Innovations in Combining Analytical, Experimental, and Computational Combustion Stability Analysis

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF09BT38

    Combustion stability is an important consideration in the design of liquid rocket engines. While fundamental modes of unstable operation in simple geometries are easily identified using analytical methods, recent times have seen these methods greatly expand in scope, applied in semi-numerical format to increasingly complex geometries and flow situations. Much remains to be explored in understandin ...

  5. Theoretical Innovations in Combining Analytical, Experimental, and Computational Combustion Stability Analysis

    SBC: METACOMP TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF09BT38

    The occurrence of combustion instability has long been a matter of serious concern in the development of liquid-propellant rocket engines due to the high rate of energy release in a confined volume in which energy losses are relatively small. Shear layer instabilities and intermittent growth rates of the mixing layer cause fluctuations in the burning rates and result in acoustic waves triggering ...

  6. Theoretical Innovations in Combustion Stability Research: Integrated Analysis and Computation

    SBC: Kassoy Innovative Science Solutions            Topic: AF09BT38

    Quantitative predictions of reactive flow dynamics from large-scale simulations of Liquid Rocket Engines (LRE) appear to be model dependent. Relationships and coupling among the dominant mechanisms most responsible for destabilization are obscured by the complexities of the model and subtle consequences of inherent ad hoc approximations not supported by mathematical rationale. The reliability of ...

  7. Thermal Barrier Coatings for Long Life in Marine Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: N16AT019

    The marine environment is extremely corrosive to turbine engine components due to the large amount of salts from the sea coupled with the fuel impurities and the high temperatures experienced. To cope with future operational requirements, a strong need exists to develop novel, protective coatings to provide environmental protection from hot corrosion and oxidation conditions across a wide range of ...

  8. Thermoelectric material-coated carbon nanotubes as high conductivity thermal interface materials

    SBC: ADA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF09BT22

    The ever-decreasing size of the electronic microchips and the ever-increasing density of electronic components required to support future Air Force platforms are creating the problem of substantial localized heat generation that can impair component operation. State of the art thermal interface materials (TIMs), that are used to dissipate heat from the source to the spreader in a microchip, are se ...

  9. Thin Film Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals for Sensor Applications- Phase II

    SBC: SUMMIT INFORMATION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A17AT001

    Deposition of highly conductive, continuous thin film metals has proven to be a significant challenge. There are several techniques that allow deposition of these metals, but their application is limited to planar surfaces and only offer complete line of sight deposition. During a recent Phase I STTR project, Summit Information Solutions, Inc. (Summit), in partnership with University of Alabama in ...

  10. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Two variants of laser-based Rayleigh scattering will be investigated, each of wh...
