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. AgileBeam Reconfigurable Free Space Optical Communication System

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18AT010

    Free Space Optical (FSO) communication systems provide many benefits for satellite communications, including high data rates and low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) compared to traditional RF communication systems.Additionally, FSO systems operate without RF emissions and are inherently immune to RF interference and jamming.The narrow optical beams and small Field-of-View of the optical receivers al ...

  3. Volumetric Wavefront Sensing for the Characterization of Distributed-Volume Aberrations

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Modern Directed Energy (DE) missions require target engagements at low elevation angles and long ranges.These engagement geometries require propagation through distributed-volume turbulence. To correct for distributed-volume turbulence effects, an estimation of the turbulence along the propagation path is required. Correcting for these image aberrations will improve the quality of the target image ...

  4. Electrically Small Multiferroic Antennas

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: AF14AT12

    ABSTRACT: We exploit recent advances in magnetoelectric/piezoelectric (ME/PE) composite materials to enable the development of efficient sub-wavelength radio frequency (RF) transmitting antennas. With these materials will be possible to achieve high dielectric permittivity and magnetic permeability, slow electromagnetic propagation and low RF loss tangents. Together, these special properties m ...

  5. Higher Order Mesh Generation for Simulation of Complex Systems

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF14AT07

    ABSTRACT: We propose here a robust production-level high-order mesh generation software for complex geometries. High order accurate numerical methods are becoming increasingly popular in the present time and have demonstrated a great measure of success in efficient error-controlled simulations for a wide variety of important problems. A curved geometry and mesh generation system is essential in m ...

  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 ...
