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. Low-Cost High Power Surface Emitting Micro-Stripe Quantum Cascade Laser Arrays

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: N13AT006

    We envision a coherently coupled QCL array architecture featuring 2nd order DFB gratings to vertically couple out light with excellent beam quality and high output power. This approach does not require cleaving of the devices or facet coatings and is therefore inherently more robust and manufacturable than facet emitters.

  2. Parametric Analysis of Various Test Configurations for Measuring the Interlaminar Fracture Toughness of CMCs using LayerSlayer and Abaqus

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N13AT008

    The low weight, excellent durability and heat resistance of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) make them attractive materials for use in aircraft engine hot sections, where improved overall engine efficiency can be realized. Nevertheless, the interlaminar properties of CMCs must be well understood before CMCs can realistically replace metallic superalloys in engine hot sections, and no standardized ...

  3. Improved Fusion of Sensor Array Data for Tactical RF Emitter Geolocation

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: N11AT012

    The predominant method used in electronic support measure (ESM) systems to detect and geolocate noncooperative RF emitters employs arrays of antennas to estimate signal angle of arrival (AOA). There are several issues that preclude wide installation and use of these for emitter geolocation. One issue is accuracy. There are various error sources, including signal noise, multipath effects, and ambig ...

  4. Efficient Rare Earth Separation Technology

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: OSD12T02

    In this Phase I SBIR proposal, Reactive Innovations, LLC will demonstrate the technical and economic viability of a room temperature environmentally friendly technology for extraction and separation of light rare earth metals (lanthanides) with improved efficiency. Rare earths currently require multiple separation steps to yield high purity material. Decreasing the number of separation processes ...

  5. Automated Human and System Performance Assessment in Operational Environments

    SBC: ADVANCED ANTI-TERROR TECHNOLOGIES CORP            Topic: N11AT001

    Our Fused-Realities-Assessments-Modules(FRAM) enables innovative new levels and types of automated quantification strategies for combining human and system performance in real-time for fused performance monitoring and after-action-review purposes. FRAM accomplishes this by fusing output of normative models of behaviors (cognitive/procedural/team), human states (physiological/affective), system sta ...

  6. Novel Electrolytic Extraction Processes for Scarce Elements

    SBC: INFINIUM, INC.            Topic: OSD12T03

    Metal Oxygen Separation Technologies, Inc. proposes a 6-month SBIR Phase I project to demonstrate feasibility of using molten salt electrolysis with a zirconia solid electrolyte to cleanly and efficiently produce dysprosium metal from its oxide. This Phase I project will have as its goal the design of a molten salt-zirconia-anode system in the context of an electrolysis cell for producing high-pu ...

  7. Novel Primary Processing of Scarce Element Ores

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: OSD12T02

    The rare-earth elements (REEs) find uses in many high tech military applications, including night vision goggles, laser range finders, precision guided weapons, and stealth technology. Their high costs (up to $6800/lb. Scandium) are due to low concentration in ores and high cost of separation. Fourteen of the REEs are listed in a single box in the periodic table, meaning they all have almost iden ...

  8. Efficient, Environmentally-Compatible Recovery Technologies for Rhenium and Other Strategic Critical Materials

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: OSD12T04

    Rhenium (Re) was the last natural element to be identified and is the rarest of metals. The most concentrated ore contains only about 1800 ppm Re. It has a very high melting point, which leads to uses in high temperature resistant applications like cataly

  9. Thermal-Shock-Resistant Sensor Windows and Domes for High-Speed Flight Made of Low-Expansion Ceramics

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N08T003

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II proposal from Materials and Systems Research, Inc. (MSRI) and University of Utah (research institution) seeks to fabricate single-phase, polycrystalline tungstate ceramics with densities greater than 99.95% and a mean grain size of less than 1 um. These ceramics have been chosen because of their low thermal expansion and low elastic ...

  10. Floatation Technologies for Rare Earths Enrichment of a Novel Low-cost Raw Material

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: OSD12T01

    Secure, domestic sources of rare earth elements (REE) would be of great strategic importance to the Department of Defense, as well as many commercially important industries. Our approach takes advantage of an abundant and low cost source not previously co
