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. Optimized Real-time Complex Information Display (ORCID) Phase II Proposal

    SBC: APTIMA INC            Topic: N08T004

    Advances in modeling and simulation, networking, and computer graphics technology have made it possible to conduct large-scale, distributed live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training events, such as the Navy’s Fleet Synthetic Training (FST) exercises, on a regular basis. However, FST exercises are not without room for improvement. Instructors and exercise controllers often confront difficult ...

  2. Out-of-Oven Aerospace Composites

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: N18BT031

    Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Photo Triggered Carbon Nanotube Field Emission Cathode for Free Electron Lasers

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: N10AT023

    Busek Co. Inc (Busek) and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) propose to develop the design of a photon actuated, ultrafast carbon nanotube (CNT) field emission cathodes for high-power electron beam accelerator sources. The cathode will be based on massive arrays of Vertically Aligned Carbon Nano-Fibers (VA-CNFs) that are individually controlled by a vertical ungated field effect transisto ...

  5. Plasmonic Enhanced Infrared Rectennas: Energy Harvesting, Terahertz Detection and Thermal Imaging

    SBC: COOLCAD ELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: N11AT003

    We propose to build a two-dimensional multi-pixel infrared detector based on rectenna technology. The rectennas comprise of a micro-antenna tuned to terahertz reception and an integrated Metal-Insulator-Metal diode. This system captures infrared radiation, rectifies it and converts it to a direct current for further processing. In this Phase II project, we plan to fabricate 2-D arrays of rectennas ...

  6. Power-Dense Electrical Rotating Machines for Propulsion and Power Generation

    SBC: CONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N19AT007

    The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...

  7. Power Dense Turbo-Compression Cooling Driven by Waste Heat

    SBC: MANTEL TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19AT013

    The U.S. Navy seeks methods to improve the fuel economy of marine diesel engines through utilization of waste heat. Low temperature engine jacket water, lubrication oil, and aftercooler air are largely untapped streams of thermal energy on these ships, but their utilization circumvents many operation challenges associated with exhaust gases. For example, variable and high exhaust gas temperatures ...

  8. Prediction of the Full-Scale Cook-off Response Based on Small-Scale Testing

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT011

    We propose to develop scaling relationships for reaction violence in the cook-off of energetic materials such as explosives or propellants. This will be accomplished by a coordinated effort consisting of data review and analysis. The anticipated results include key non-dimensional parameters that incorporate the thermo-physical, flow, thermodynamic, and kinetic properties of the material, the heat ...

  9. Prediction of the Full-Scale Cook-off Response Based on Small-Scale Testing

    SBC: SAFETY MANAGEMENT SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N10AT011

    The objective of this project is to develop a methodology for predicting reaction violence of full-scale munitions in either a fast or slow cook-off scenario. This methodology will use a combination of existing heat transfer models and thermal stimulus simulation tools coupled with an empirical model to be developed from data collected from various lab and subscale experimental hardware. Hardware ...

  10. Prehensor for one atmosphere diving suit

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: N13AT010

    Current atmospheric diving suits and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) have end effectors with simply 1 DOF. This rudimentary manipulation results in excessive time spent working a problem underwater, development of task specific tools that can be operated by the pliers or acceptance that a specific job simply can't be accomplished. Vishwa Robotics proposes a teleoperated, anthropomorphic end ...
