The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Embedded Sensors for Flight Test (Every Aircraft a Test Aircraft)

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF14AT01

    Increasing system capabilities in terms of weapon systems, ISR payloads, GNC, etc., enabled by smaller and more capable electronics systems have led to a trend for overall size reduction in military aircraft. This has resulted in a reduction in the avail...

  2. Biomimetic Design of Morphing Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: Concepts to Systems Inc.            Topic: AF15AT01

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this STTR is to design micro air vehicles (MAVs) capable of adaptively changing wing geometry utilizing novel active materials that overcome limitations of previous attempts at implementing practical biomimetic multifunctional structures. The basic idea of a morphing aircraft wherein the vehicle changes its shape to optimally perform in multiple flight segments holds the prom ...

  3. Robust Mid-IR Optical Fibers for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Lambda Photonics, LLC            Topic: AF15AT02

    ABSTRACT: Infrared sources and sensors are becoming increasingly useful for military and commercial applications. We propose to exploit recent advances in multimaterial fiber technology to produce a new class of optical infrared fibers that are robust and low in cost for high-power, high-stress environments. The use of beam confining fiber optics reduces or eliminates issues with misalignment or d ...

  4. Bio-Inspired Bone, Wing, Tail, and Muscle Structures for Morphing Aircraft

    SBC: Prioria Robotics, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT01

    ABSTRACT: Our focus in this proposal is to perform basic research to create bio-inspired 3-D morphing mechanical structures which are a gateway technology to enable true 3-D morphing flight. Prioria and Virginia Tech University will team to perform basic research into bio-inspired structure such as artificial bones/wings/feathers and artificial muscles. Prioria will establish technical feasibility ...
