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. KINETIC ENERGY PROJECTILE LETHALITY ENHANCEMENT

    SBC: Nichols Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    A FEASIBILITY STUDY IS PROPOSED ON A NOVEL IDEA FOR A DESIGN OF A SEMI-SMART PROJECTILE FOR KINETIC ENERGY WEAPONS, AND IN PARTICULAR, EML WEAPONS. THE TECHNOLOGY FOR THIS DESIGN IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. IT WOULD BE INTRINSICALLY HARD TO THE 100000 G ACCELERATIONS EXPERIENCE BY AN EML PROJECTILE AND WOULD HAVE A GREATLY IMPROVED PROBABILITY OF HIT (AND KILL) OVER A CLASSICAL DUMB PROJECTILE AGAINST ...

  2. MATERIALS DEVELOPMENT FOR PULSED CONDUCTORS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROJECT WILL DEVELOP MATERIALS AND SUPPORTING THERMAL TECHNOLOGY LEADING TO DESIGN OF HIGH POWER PULSE CONDUCTORS FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS. IN PHSE I WE WILL EVALUATE AN EM GUN SYSTEM, IDENTIFY ALTERNATIVE MATERIALS AND THERMAL APPROACHES FOR SELECTED COMPONENTS, AND IDENTIFY TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS. COMPONENT DEVELOPMENT FEASIBILITY AND BENEFITS WILL BE DEFINED.

  3. WET TURBOEXPANDER FOR CRYOCOOLERS OF SPACEBORNE SURVEILLANCE SENSORS

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE NEED FOR INCREASING THE SENSITIVITY OF SPACE-BORNE SENSORS WILL REQUIRE DEVELOPMENT OF LONG-LIFE, HIGHLY EFFICIENT HELIUM LIQUIFIERS. CONVENTIONAL HELIUM LIQUIFIERS EMPLOY A JOULE-THOMSON EXPANSION VALVE TO EXPAND THE HELIUM AT TEMPERATURES BELOW ABOUT 10 DEG K. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT GAINS OF UP TO 30% IN OVERALL CYCLE EFFICIENCY CAN BE OBTAINED IF THE JOULE-THOMSON VALVE IS REPLACED BY AN EX ...

  4. ANNULAR FLOW ELECTROTHERMAL PLUG RAMJET INVESTIGATION AS A HYPERVELOCITY PROJECTILE LAUNCHER

    SBC: SRS Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A NEW SYSTEM, THE ANNULAR FLOW ELECTROTHERMAL PLUG RAMJET, IS PROPOSED AS A ALTERNATIVE TO CHEMICAL ROCKETS AND ELECTROMAGNETIC LAUNCHERS AS A KINETIC ENERGY WEAPON. THIS SYSTEM APPEARS TO BE CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING THE HYPERVELOCITIES NECESSARY IN REASONABLE LAUNCHER LENGTHS, PRIMARILY BECAUSE IT DOES NOT ACCELERATE EITHER THE PROPELLANT OR THE PROPULSION SYSTEM REQUIRED TO ACHIEVE HYPERVELOCITIES. ...

  5. Advanced Scene Generation Techniques

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: MDA03003

    In Phase II of this project, we will build and demonstrate a COTS-based infrared scene generation system that utilizes multiple graphics processing units operating in parallel with pixel level timing synchronization. Current and future defense system technologies are being designed with performance characteristics and capabilities which make them challenging to adequately test in a hardware-in-th ...

  6. Thin-Walled HfN Components for KKV Divert and Attitude Control Systems

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: BMDO01002

    During this Phase 2 program, which has been submitted under Pre-2002 MDA Phase 2 Guidelines, we propose to transition the status of potentially ultrahigh temperature-capable, highly cost-effective, HfN-based monolithic ceramics and cermets (two-phase ceramic + metallic) materials from the laboratory scale to engineering status. It is our hope and expectation that follow-on funding for our Phase 1 ...

  7. On-Orbit Longevity of Cryogenic Cooling Systems

    SBC: EXOTHERMICS, INC.            Topic: MDA03062

    Exothermics and their Phase 2 partner Northrop Grumman Space Technology seek to increase the reliability, producibility and performance of cryocoolers which cool Long and Very Long Wave Infrared (LWIR and VLWIR) focal planes in space surveillance systems. The materials proposed for investigation address the regenerator, a critical thermodynamic component in pulse tube and Stirling cryocoolers. In ...

  8. Enhanced Electromagnetic Effects-

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: A02206

    In modern Department of Defense (DOD) and Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Radar and Communications Systems, it has been shown that two of the most costly requirements are the effective radiated power (ERP) and target Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR). For MDA radar systems estimates of up to $50M per added dB of SNR have been reported. In its Phase I effort entitled "Influence of Fractal Signals on the Eff ...

  9. Tactically Ready Asset Condition Recorder (TRACR)

    SBC: INTUITIVE RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: MDA03049

    The objective of the Tactically Ready Asset Condition Recorder or TRACR Phase II effort will be to continue the transfer of the Remote Readiness Asset Prognostic and Diagnostic System (RRAPDS) technology onto the Theater High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile system. Phase I illustrated the feasibility of the TRACR concept for THAAD missile platform. This successful effort, in addition to the ...

    SBC: MENTIS SCIENCES INC            Topic: MDA02021

    The focus of the Phase I SBIR effort, SMDC Contract DASG60-03-C-0093, was to initiate a study of this same material for different RF frequencies, specifically, X-Band. The preliminary results are very promising. Purposely, MSI utilized its core competencies to develop a viable X-band candidate solution and leapfrogged the bulk of the material properties analysis to evaluate the electrical stabil ...
