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. Nonlinear Phased Array System for Detection/Imaging of fatigue damage precursors and assessment of remaining useful life

    SBC: Metallurgical Acoustic Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Despite decades of experimental and theoretical studies cyclic fatigue failure remains one of the most critical challenges for engineering as it can occur without any indication of impending failure. More than half of mechanical in service failures are due to cyclic fatigue resulting in unanticipated and significant costs. Metallurgical Acoustic Research Solutions, LLC (MARS, LLC) in collaboration ...

  2. Lunar Surface Network and Kinetic Delivery System

    SBC: SPACE INITIATIVES INC.            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    We propose a mesh network system that can be deployed onto the lunar surface either with or, in advance of a new landing, either crewed or robotic, that can provide the following services: terminal navigation and landing positioning, even in the possible presence of hostile jamming or spoofing; local PNT for astronauts and robots over an area surrounding the landing site; communications relay over ...

  3. Machine Learning of Part Variability for Predictive Maintenance

    SBC: EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN & ANALYSIS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Extensive testing at substantial cost is a major part of military propulsion development programs. These programs involve numerous component and engine tests aimed at producing safe and reliable engines. Despite these efforts, engines still experience unexpected failures. Geometric variability of parts within design tolerances is a well-known source of uncertainty in overall reliability. USAF sust ...

  5. Novel Image Segmentation Methods for Missile Attitude

    SBC: UHV Technologies Inc            Topic: AF19BT005

    Missile attitude in flight can be difficult to determine from ground-based images due to image resolution, lighting, object occlusion, and poor contrast. To address the need, UHV and UTARI propose a fusion based approach of 2 well proven methods to solve this problem. First, UHV Technologies will implement their existing innovative and state of the art machine learning methods for image segmentati ...

  7. Optimized Substrate Orientation for 4H-SiC Epitaxy

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: AF19BT015

    SiC devices are limited in application due to high substrate manufacturing costs. High temperatures are required to make high quality 4H-SiC substrates, limiting throughput and imposing large maintenance costs on equipment. Lowering the process temperature will make SiC devices more economical, but difficulties with maintaining useful growth rates remain; altering CVD gas precursor chemistry alone ...
