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. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The most promising approach to overc ...

  3. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. Moreover, the thermal cracking of the fuel creates coke ...
