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. Carbon Nanotube Antennnas

    SBC: RF Nano Corporation            Topic: A06T012

    It is the purpose of this Phase I STTR program to both demonstrate proof of concept of long nanotubes as receiving and transmitting microwave antennas, and to develop detailed simulation tools to predict their performance and determine the optimum geometry. This will build on four years of UC Irvine experience fabricating mm long individual single walled carbon nanotubes, and pioneering theoretica ...

  2. High Cycle Fatigue Analysis of Integrally Rotors

    SBC: ROTORDYNAMICS-SEAL RESEARCH            Topic: N06T015

    A new approach is proposed for high fidelity analysis of aeroelastic characteristics of integrally bladed rotors. This new multiscale approach for nonequilibrium flow path analysis will yield high fidelity solutions including all turbulence scales at a fraction of the computational cost of RANS. Integration of this advanced capability within an existing multidisciplinary, multifidelity, transien ...

  3. Combustion Stability Innovations for Liquid Rocket

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: AF06T005

    Combustion instability in liquid rocket engines (LREs) has manifested in nearly all LRE development programs. While the driving mechanisms of combustion instability are vast and coupled, in all instances, the net result is significant cost and schedule over-runs. In today’s business environment, such over-runs are rarely tolerated and generally result in program cancellations. Development of hig ...

  4. Environmentally-Benign Oxidizers for Propulsion

    SBC: Science and Technology Applications, LLC            Topic: AF06T007

    Ammonium perchlorate (AP) is the most commonly used oxidizing ingredient in solid propellant formulations. It carries a sufficient excess of oxygen to allow for the combustion of the required binder and added metal, such as aluminum. The major drawback of AP is its chlorine content which results in the formation of large amounts of HCl as a combustion product and causes severe environmental proble ...

  5. INTELLIGENT DRIVERS USING OPTICAL SENSING

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: ST061009

    Science Research Laboratory (SRL) and the Penn State Electro-Optics Center (PSU) propose to develop intelligent laser diode driver technology, incorporating optical diagnostics, that extends the operating lifetime of laser diode arrays by an order of magnitude. Random perturbations of temperature or current density during operation of a laser diode array can lead to thermal runaway and the formati ...

  6. Low Power Retroreflectors for Optical Communications

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A06T005

    Optical retro-reflectors have been used for communications for many years. The approach has many advantages, when one terminal has limited power, space, weight, and a low cost as requirements. The major limitation for “Retro-Comms” has been that the modulator consumes too much power at higher modulation rates. What we propose is to reduce the power, size, weight and cost of the Retro-Modula ...

  7. Acoustic Pattern Recognition for Security Breaching Noise Detection

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N06T036

    A proposed acoustic pattern recognition system will be based around an array of acoustic sensors to allow localization of sound events and cancellation of background noise. The number of sensors could be adjusted to vary the coverage area depending on the site. The measured signals will provide the input to a sophisticated signal processing algorithm that will separate the acoustic signals into ...

  8. A lightweight infrastructure for detection and mitigation of insider threats in distributed environments

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: MDA06T009

    The insider threat remains one of the most difficult to detect -- left alone to mitigate -- threats against information systems. The overall objective of the effort (Phase I and Phase II) is to produce and prototype a Distributed Insider Threat Detection System (DITDS) for distributed environments, capable of identifying and quantifying emerging insider threats against the network, allowing for t ...

  9. Aided Navigation: Theory and Applications for Sensors and Architectures

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: AF06T032

    The coupling of GPS and INS is often characterized as loose, tight, or ultra-tight depending on the nature of the GPS input to the navigation filter. Thus, considering the challenge of precision navigation without GPS, this project will test and validate the coupling of sensor (EO, IR) information such as ego-motion and position updates similar to the coupling of a GPS and INS system. This proje ...

  10. Viscous Drag Reduction Using Hydrophobic Surface

    SBC: Seashell Technology LLC            Topic: N06T024

    It has been shown that hydrophobic surfaces can reduce skin-friction drag in micro-fluidic devices. During Phase I research, we will fabricate and test a high performance durable hydrophobic surface coating created by a simple, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly method. This coating could have significant effects on skin-friction drag reduction and/or transition delay in boundary layers. ...
