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. Rapid Identification of Effects of Defects within Metal Additive Manufacturing (RIED-AM)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N18AT013

    Additive manufacturing (AM) systems, especially metal AM, bring revolutionary capabilities, but suffer from a lack of understanding of the defects that exist within the components. In this research, based on selective experimental study and numerical simulations, we will develop an empirical database of defects and their effects on mechanical properties using Laser Powder Bed Fusion (LPBF) technol ...

  2. Quantifying Uncertainty in the Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured Parts Due to Material and Process Variation

    SBC: VEXTEC Corporation            Topic: N16AT004

    The Phase I objective is a proof of concept capability integrating process information, material properties and damage tolerance simulations into the Additive Manufacturing (AM) design certification process. VEXTEC has a toolbox of software and methods that consists of various software modules in multiple formats that are used to assess the durability of parts processed by traditional methods of c ...

  3. Pseudospectral Optimal Control for Flight Trajectory Optimization

    SBC: STOCHASTECH CORPORATION            Topic: N15AT006

    The computation and real-time implementation of controls in nonlinear systems remains one of the great challenges for applying optimal control theory in demanding aerospace and industrial systems. Often, linearization around a set point is the only practical approach, and many controllers implemented in hardware systems are simple linear feedback mechanisms. From proportional guidance in missiles ...

  4. Pseudospectral Optimal Control for Flight Trajectory Optimization

    SBC: SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: N15AT006

    Systems Technology, Inc. proposes to use and extend new technology from the University of Florida to enable real-time use of trajectory optimization to improve the guidance of autonomous air vehicles such as those used by the U. S. Navy. These range from missiles to UAVs. Specifically this work will involve enhancements, from the University of Florida, in hp-adaptive pseudospectral optimization. T ...

  5. Protocol Feature Identification and Removal

    SBC: P & J ROBINSON CORP            Topic: N18AT018

    Protocols used for communication suffer bloat from a variety of sources, such as support for legacy features or rarely used (and unnecessary) functionality. Traditionally, the Navy subscribes to a blanket adoption of a standard protocol "as is". Unnecessary features are active and can be accessed by both internal and external systems creating security vulnerabilities. PJR Corporation's (PJR's) Pha ...

  6. Process diagnostics to quantify mechanical performance of AM parts

    SBC: POLARONYX INC            Topic: N16AT004

    This Navy STTR Phase I proposal presents an unprecedented NDI tool to quantify mechanical properties of metal parts made with laser additive manufacturing with material characteristics and process parameters. A fiber laser SAW and heterodyne detection is used with LIBS to study both in-process and post-process for both flat and shaped parts. It is the enabling technology for characterize the AM pa ...

  7. Proactive Contextual Decision Support for Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: N13AT020

    Current decision tools often omit important situational context. Unfortunately, this can lead to dangerous and costly errors, as context drives decision making. For example, in operational navigation planning tasks, decisions must be made that rely on multiple information sources of different fidelities and uncertainties. Furthermore, after obtaining additional information the necessity for replan ...

  8. Precision Optical Navigation Guidance System (PRONG)

    SBC: FOMS INC.            Topic: N15AT014

    FOMS Inc. and University of Southern California propose to develop the PRecision Optical Navigation Guidance (PRONG) system to provide continuous, high quality range and bearing data to fixed wing aircraft during landing approach to an aircraft carrier. The PRONG system uses infrared optical communications with advanced modulation and coding to measure range between ship and aircraft with accuracy ...

  9. Optimization of Fatigue Test Signal Compression Using the Wavelet Transform

    SBC: ATA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N18BT029

    Traditional approaches to accelerated fatigue testing rely on heuristic methods with thresholds based mostly on experience and engineering judgment. These methods generally do not apply to the multiaxial dynamic loading situations characteristic of most aerospace applications and often result in uncharacteristic fatigue damage and failure modes during testing. To overcome the limitations of tradit ...

  10. Operational Sand and Particulate Sensor System for Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: HAL Technology, LLC            Topic: N18AT023

    Gas turbine engines with prolonged exposure to sand and dust are susceptible to component and performance degradation and ultimately engine failure. Hal Technology’s proprietary, compact, rugged, flush-mounted, fiber-optic sensor platform measures particulate size, size distributions, and concentration for real-time engine health monitoring. Our proposed sensor will use an innovative hybrid disc ...
