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. Extending Molecular Simulation to Grain Scale for Simulating Response of Energetic Material Under High Strain Rate and Shock Loading

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF17AT023

    High Velocity Penetrator Weapons experience severe stress in terms of high frequency vibration and shock during launch, flight, and on impact. The extreme conditions have significant impact on the survivability of the weapon due to damage of the energetic material and fuze compartment. Molecular dynamics is often used to understand the effect of external shock on the material. However, molecular ...

  3. A LevelSet / XFEM Approach for Topology Optimization of Thermally Loaded Structures

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    The automotive and aerospace industries use topology optimization to minimize structural weight while satisfying functional constraints. However, the industry-standard fictitious material or density approach has been less effective when applied to physics beyond simple structural mechanics. Known issues include: failed numerical convergence or so-called gray material in computed optimal designs, n ...

  5. Spiral: A Framework for Chaotic Sensitivity Analysis and Optimization

    SBC: Lateral Unbounded Software LLC            Topic: AF17AT017

    Computational design is encountering barriers due to chaotic dynamics. The characteristic unpredictability, aperiodicity, and sensitivity to initial conditions in chaotic dynamics requires computationally costly time-dependent analysis. Computationally costly analysis precludes sampling-based optimization, indicating that chaotic systems would significantly benefit from gradient-based optimization ...

  6. An Immersed Boundary Framework for Topology Optimization of Nonlinear Thermoelastic Structures with Internal Radiation

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    Thermoelastic structures poses a critical challenge to designers due to the inherent proportionality of the thermal loading on the structural thickness. This is further exacerbated by structural nonlinearity where any out-of-plane deformation further increases the effective loading on the structure. As a result of this, conventional design optimization procedures, which are typically based on line ...

  8. Fast Response Heat Flux Sensors and Efficient Data Reduction Methodology for Hypersonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Ahmic Aerospace LLC            Topic: AF17AT001

    Accurate knowledge of heat flux is critical in assessing the performance and survivability of hypersonic aerodynamic systems. Under these flow regimes extreme pressures, temperatures, and vibrations make it difficult to quantify even the most basic aerothermodynamic properties. Ahmic Aerospace and Virginia Tech propose an innovative new approach to develop robust heat flux sensors and a data reduc ...

  9. AC Plasma Sensor For High Enthalpy Hypersonic Test Facilities

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF17AT002

    Spectral Energies and the University of Notre Dame is developing a new class of point-wise sensors for high-enthalpy conditions that rely on the use of a weakly ionized AC discharge between two electrodes as the main sensing element. The advantages of this approach include a native high bandwidth with a theoretical maximum in excess of 15 MHz and a simple mechanical design that is inherently robus ...
