The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY20 is not expected to be complete until September, 2021.

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.

  1. Embedded Sensors for Flight Test (Every Aircraft a Test Aircraft)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT01

    Increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, GNC, etc., enabled by smaller and more capable electronics systems have led to a trend for overall size reduction in military aircraft. This has resulted in a reduction in the avail...
