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. Novel Algorithm/Hardware Partnerships for Real-Time Nonlinear Control

    SBC: STOCHASTECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF09BT06

    The real-time implementation of controls in nonlinear systems remains one of the great challenges in applying advanced control technology. Often, linearization around a set point is the only practical approach, and many controllers implemented in hardware systems are simple PID feedback mechanisms. To apply Pontryagin’s principle or Bellman’s equation using conventional hardware and algorith ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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. ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. High Energy Density Nanocomposite Based on Tailored Surface Chemistry

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: AF09BT05

    High energy density capacitors are required for practical implementation of GW-class pulse power loads. In response to this need, TPL has established unique dielectric and capacitor capabilities. Revolutionary materials, designs and manufacturing process have been developed for power sources that have potential for an order of magnitude reduction in mass and volume relative to current commercial ...

  7. Ultradense Plasmonic Integrated Devices and Circuits

    SBC: ULTIMARA INC            Topic: AF08BT18

    We propose to develop ultradense plasmonic integrated devices and circuits for optical interconnect compatible with the electronic circuitry. In our proposal, we will employ engineered metallic nanostructures that combine energy concentration by plasmonic lenses and retardation-based plasmonic resonances to even further boost the efficiency of materials exhibiting optical nonlinearity. These plas ...

  8. Modeling and Testing of RF/HPM Effects in a Voltage Controlled Oscillator

    SBC: VOSS SCIENTIFIC LLC            Topic: AF09BT08

    Military applications for the use of directed electromagnetic energy, which include high power microwave (HPM), seek to disrupt electronic systems by exploiting non-linearity in semiconductors. While current mode second breakdown is a thermal non-linearity often exploited, it has been demonstrated that a broad class of semiconductors have more subtle non-linearities that can be utilized to induce ...

  9. Advanced High Power Solid-State Burst Generator

    SBC: NESS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF09BT14

    Recent advances in dielectric and magnetic materials have spurred renewed interest in the field of solid state pulse and RF burst generation using Non-Linear Transmission Lines (NLTL) . The NLTL approach to HPM and UWB generation eliminates the need for an electron beam, vacuum system and magnets required in conventional HPM sources. Furthermore, the novel waveforms of NLTL generated pulses promi ...

  10. Novel nonclassical-light-assisted protocols for quantum key distribution

    SBC: MATHSENSE ANALYTICS            Topic: AF09BT21

    The key to making quantum key distribution practical (especially for free-space applications) is to be able to use weak laser pulses (WLP) instead of single photons, while at the same time making sure that any third party wanting to avoid detection and mount an eavesdropping attack is restricted to using beam-splitting rather than photon-number splitting (PNS). In this effort, we propose a novel s ...
