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. Carbon NanotubeCopper Composite as Electron Emitter for Passive Spacecraft Discharging

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF18AT011

    This SBIR project will develop and demonstrate efficient electron emitter based on carbon nanotubecopper (CNT-Cu) composite for passive discharging of spacecraft in plasma environment. A spacecraft moving through harsh plasma environment collects electrons, which leads to the spacecraft charging up to several kilovolts. High voltage between different parts of the spacecraft can ignite arcing, whic ...

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

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: AF17AT015

    Thermoelastic structures pose a critical challenge to designers due to the inherent design dependence of thermal loading on structural thickness. This is further exacerbated by structural nonlinearity due to in-plane, and more importantly, the out-of-plane bending deformation that further increases the effective loading on the structure. During Phase I of this project, we have added significant ne ...
