The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY21 is not expected to be complete until September, 2022.

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. Resilient Control Electronics

    SBC: Iris Technology Corporation            Topic: MDA17T003

    As the orbital space around the earth gets more and more crowded with civilian and military reconnaissance, weather, tracking, communication, and navigation satellites - civilian and military users become increasingly dependent on the services provided by these spacecraft. This situation increases the possibility of offense actions against some or all of these spacecraft. The possibility calls for ...

  2. Scaled and Optimized Internally Cooled Window

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF121092

    Forward-looking infrared seekers are the preferred guidance system for current and future hypersonic interceptors. Seeker performance is limited by the infrared window’s ability to survive and image in a high-Mach, endo-atmospheric environment where heating rates can exceed 80 W/cm². Window materials primarily fail because of thermal shock, but can also experience issues due to absorption/emiss ...

  3. Multiple Images Spatial Turbulence Imager (MISTI)

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF071340

    Because of the maneuvering capabilities of adversaries’ new hypersonic weapons, defensive missiles must fly in very demanding flight regimes, and intercept maneuvers place stringent requirements on interceptor seeker systems. Successfully completing the hit-to-kill end game requires the seeker can either compensate for or perform despite the thermal and optical effects that cause the seeker to m ...

  4. Additively Manufactured Internally Cooled Window Frame

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA18021

    Mounting of infrared (IR) windows on hypersonic vehicles is a critical design issue because of the stresses caused by high temperatures combined with the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) mismatch between the window and frame materials. Many applications use elastomeric seals to limit window distortion and stress by allowing for joint flexibility. However, windows and frames operating in this ...

  5. Comfortable, Easy-To-Fit, Deep-Insert Earplug

    SBC: Paxauris LLC            Topic: DHA19C001

    Effective hearing protection is essential for service members who work in hazardous noise environments and for whom permanent or even temporary hearing damage affects performance, endangers lives, and reduces quality of life. Various devices have been developed to attenuate high levels of impulse and continuous noise while allowing low-level sounds to pass through. However, issues with comfort, ea ...

  6. Advanced Data Association Algorithms to Address Emerging Threats

    SBC: Archarithms, Inc            Topic: MDA19T001

    The proposed approach provides innovative sensor data association algorithms capable of performing correct data association in multi-target tracking environments with one or more sensors. Current air and missile threats have the ability to fly non-ballistic, highly maneuvering hypersonic trajectories, and the ability to maintain closely spaced trajectories. Improved detection/track association is ...

  7. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: MDA19T002

    The objective of this project is to develop a capability to model fracture of materials used in hypersonic vehicles that results from hypervelocity impact while exposed to extreme temperatures. Symplectic Engineering’s approach addresses this challenge at two levels. At the computational level, a Relaxed Extended Finite Element approach is pursued to represent (possibly intersecting) fractures l ...

  8. High Temperature Fracture Mechanics

    SBC: Karagozian & Case, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T002

    This STTR research study aims to enhance and apply thermo-mechanically coupled computational models for high-temperature fracture. This topic is particularly challenging in that hypersonic flight in the atmosphere generates extreme conditions over a vehicle that can affect the strength and performance the vehicle materials, both in-flight conditions as well as for cases where the vehicle encounter ...

  9. Question Answering for Data Analytics

    SBC: Archarithms, Inc            Topic: MDA19T003

    This topic seeks an innovative NL solution for answering questions that data analysts ask when analyzing data sets to increase efficiency and consistency. The government is working on an all-digital missile defense simulation architecture that will deliver massive amounts of simulation data. Data analysts will soon be inundated with more data than they can possibly analyze manually. A critical par ...

  10. Secure Virtual Environment for Cyber Resiliency Validation

    SBC: Gray Analytics, Inc.            Topic: MDA19T004

    The most direct way to meet the technical objectives for the Secure Virtual Environment (SVE) for Cyber Resiliency Validation would be to replicate the missile defense system’s tactical hardware, software, and network. However, this is cost prohibitive due to the amount of hardware procurement required for the Cyber test environment. Luckily, with the exception of supply chain threats, firmware, ...
