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. Integrated Optical Transmitter for Space Based Applications

    SBC: FREEDOM PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: T802

    The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement an integrated optical transmitter for RZ-DPSK modulation for integration into modems for the international space station (ISS). Conventional optical transmitters are based on commercially available discrete components. These have several fiber interconnects which leads to increased optical loss, reduced reliability in a space e ...

  2. Low-Cost, Scalable, Hybrid Launch Propulsion Technology

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: T101

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration Purdue University, proposes to develop a novel launch propulsion technology for rapid insertion of nano/micro satellites (~ 5-50 kg scale) into low earth orbit, with the potential to lower the current state-of-the-art launch stage cost by a factor of two. The technology employs a propulsion scheme comprising a storable liquid oxidizer and a unique sol ...

  3. Low Mass/Power Sensor Suite for Spacesuits

    SBC: SEACOAST SCIENCE, INC.            Topic: T601

    To provide additional telemetry and data for long-term mission, the composition of internal atmosphere of spacesuits must be determined. Specifically, the unambiguous detection and quantification of carbon dioxide is crucial for mission completion. Detection of other gasses (ammonia, oxygen) is also necessary for a complete sensor suite. Seacoast Science and Case Western Reserve University pro ...

  4. Modular Embedded Intelligent Sensor Network

    SBC: ANGSTROM DESIGNS INC            Topic: T1301

    Remote sensing, when combined with real-time processing, provides instant feedback on safety, mission success and system health. Being able to combine embedded sensing with distributed networks gives us the additional potential to further benefit many systems and sub-systems in the aerospace industry including launch vehicles, ground test equipment and spacecraft. These remote distributed sensor ...

  7. Robotic Tool for Asteroid Resource Prospecting and Characterization

    SBC: INTELLIGENT FIBER OPTIC SYSTEMS CORP            Topic: T402

    Optical fibers are inherently tolerant of cosmic radiation and a wide temperature range, immune to electromagnetic noise and thus solar flares, etc. Embedded fiber sensors can be highly resistant to shock and vibration, hence their usage in the oil drilling industry. IFOS will work with Stanford?s Center for Design Research to develop a robotic prospecting tool with fiber-optic based haptic sensi ...

  9. Sensitivity Analysis for Design Optimization Integrated Software Tools

    SBC: Linked, Inc.            Topic: T401

    The objective of this proposed project is to provide a new set of sensitivity analysis theory and codes, the Sensitivity Analysis for Design Optimization Integrated Software Tool set, to work within the existing NASA O3 Tool. In this Phase I effort, the sensitivity approach will be implemented for two basic types of analysis, namely static systems of equations (linear and non-linear) and eigen-pro ...

  10. Soft Robotic Manipulators with Enhanced Perception using Multimodal Sensory Skins

    SBC: OTHER LAB, INC.            Topic: T1101

    We propose that the key to robotic automation in unstructured environments is compliant robotic manipulators that can tolerate, sense, and leverage contact in a feedback loop. We will demonstrate an instrumented end-effector that will be capable of enhanced perception through observed and controlled contact. This approach requires: (i) a network of sensors capable of capturing the highly compliant ...
