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. Electronically Dimmable Eye Protection Devices (EDEPD)

    SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The            Topic: AF18BT003

    Electronically dimmable materials with sufficiently strong visible transmission shift, color neutrality, durability and switching speeds have eluded development since the search began nearly half a century ago. We demonstrate the potential for dynamic optical dimming using plasmonic nanostructures with electrodynamic simulations of promising plasmonic metamaterial architectures. In order to achiev ...

  6. PRIME: PRimary Integration and Maturation of EGS

    SBC: KBR Wyle Services, LLC            Topic: AF18BT012

    Legacy satellite command and control capabilities and their related telemetry operate in a largely stove piped framework. Satellites are still commanded, controlled, and communicated with their ground station in a specific constellation structure. Each ground station is unique to a given constellation and the communications and telemetry are aligned to the specific constellation, underscoring an o ...

  8. Efficient and Faster Methods for Performing General Wave-Optics Propagation

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF18BT004

    We will develop hybrid wave propagation approach that implements FFT and EMA (Efficient Matrix Algorithms) propagators in a fashion that is transparent to the user but insures the highest efficiency and accuracy for a given propagation problem. We will develop rules to decide which propagation approach is ideal for a given situation. The propagation algorithms will be coded in Vulkan/CUDA and C++ ...

  9. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: AHMIC AEROSPACE LLC            Topic: AF15AT19

    Scramjet engines are designed to operate across a wide Mach number range and typically incorporate isolator sections to provide sufficient back-pressure margin and prevent unstart. As military requirements become increasingly demanding, an active, closed-loop control system is necessary to maintain engine stability and power output. During Phase I, key components of a scramjet control system were ...
