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. Using explainable AI (XAI) and related technologies to reduce physician burnout and improve medical surge capacity.

    SBC: DIGITAS, LLC            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Physicians are highly burned out (up to 80% of physicians) and the COVID-19 pandemic is making this problem much worse; Department of Defense doctors are at higher risk (caring for more patients per capita).  Burnout may manifest itself as sustained stress; but also leads to severe effects such as physician suicides, physician drug abuse, and increased patient medical errors.  Electronic health ...

  2. High Performance Energetic Propellant Ingredient Process Research and Development

    SBC: NALAS ENGINEERING SERVICES INC            Topic: N16AT021

    CL-20 is the most powerful conventional explosive known, but its high cost has limited its adoption in a range of potential applications. Par of the challenge in making these materials is the complexity of the reaction used to prepare the polycyclic cage. The complexity of this reaction makes it difficult to have insight into the reaction and to improve it. Additionally, several of the intermediat ...

  3. Military Supersonic Cargo and Troop Transport Concept: How Exosonic's Commercial Supersonic Airliner can be Transitioned to a Military Supersonic Transport Vehicle

    SBC: EXOSONIC, INC.            Topic: AF19BT001

    Exosonic develops supersonic commercial jets for airlines and proposes a USAF version. This aircraft flies at Mach 1.8 over 5000 nmi and carries 64-92 troops or 6 troops and 6 463L master pallets.

  4. Rapid Nondestructive Inspection of Traditionally Uninspectable Adhesively-Filled Composite Joints

    SBC: THERMAL WAVE IMAGING INC            Topic: AF18BT016

    To a large extent, Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) composites have become the material of choice in modern aircraft design, due to their high strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion immunity and fatigue properties. Many primary structure components (e.g. bulkheads, stabilizers, wing boxes), where an aluminum skin was previously joined to a metallic airframe by fasteners, adhesives or welding, h ...

  5. A Software Toolkit for Predicting the Neural Signatures of Cognitive States

    SBC: SONALYSTS INC            Topic: AF18BT001

    The United States Air Force (USAF) has a long history of using human performance models to increase the effectiveness of training, and predict the impact of physical factors (like fatigue) and environmental factors (like time pressures and information uncertainty). Within Phase I, Sonalysts and Miami University worked to improve the quality of these models through the development of the EEG Modeli ...

  6. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    We propose to investigate, in collaboration with MGH Voice Center and Altec, Inc., application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience of our partner, MGH (including resea ...

  8. Visual Relative Navigation

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST18C006

    As unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) become more prevalent there is an increasing desire to automate UAS navigation and control. To enable future UASs to perform a wider variety of missions, they must be able to complete autonomous relative navigation to accomplish missions. Current technologies rely heavily on GPS measurements, which are undesirable since GPS signals may be unavailable in many DoD ...

  9. Marburg Virus Prophylactic Medical Countermeasure

    SBC: Flow Pharma, Inc.            Topic: CBD18A002

    Through this STTR contract, we propose to evaluate the efficacy of our vaccine, FlowVax Marburg, in nonhuman primates (NHPs). This will be achieved through four Tasks. In Task 1, we will manufacture the vaccine in a quantity sufficient for the animal studies. In Task 2, we will perform MHC genotyping on a representative population of NHPs and, based on results, select a set of MHC-matched NHPs for ...

  10. Toolset For Prediction of Carbon-Carbon Aeroshell Properties Based On Constituent Materials And Manufacturing Process Parameters

    SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF19AT021

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are used in the fabrication of aeroshells and thermal protection systems (TPS) in hypersonic and atmospheric reentry applications because they maintain their strength at elevated temperatures and have desirable thermal conductivity properties. Although these materials have been used in mission-critical components for decades, the effects of variations in processing m ...
