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.
SBC: VECTOR CONTROLS, INC. Topic: N10AT036
A boat’s coxswain is adept at analyzing the wave environment, adjusting the craft’s propulsion system and control surfaces to mitigate its motions and reduce the chance of capsizing. There is a significant predictive component in the coxswain’s control decisions. Unmanned surface vehicles (USVs) lack the benefit of a highly trained coxswain reading and predicting oncoming waves - existing au ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy

different modes, while using different combinations of subsystems. This presents a challenge for the personnel validating the system during design and development; the number of combinations of environments, modes, and subsystems is exponential. They cannot all be tested, so an optimal subset of tests must be run. We propose to develop VERITAS: Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Tea ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC. Topic: OSD09T004
The dependability, persistence, and versatility of unmanned systems have made them indispensable assets in today’s warfighting. As they are tasked to fulfill new missions in unpredictable, dynamic environments, they are transitioning from remote control into the realm of autonomy. Here they perform rapid and semi-autonomous behaviors, such as re-planning and re-tasking, to accomplish mission obj ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy

Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy

Current issues with forward deployed flight simulator sickness prevent flight simulators from being used to their fullest potential. Infoscitex and the Mayo Clinic have been jointly developing a system for incorporating a vestibular display into flight simulators. In the Phase I program, we successfully demonstrated that using the vestibular display with a fixed-base simulator reduces both the inc ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
Thermal-Shock-Resistant Sensor Windows and Domes for High-Speed Flight Made of Low-Expansion CeramicsSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: FERRO SOLUTIONS, INC. Topic: N08T020
Ferro Solutions has demonstrated in Phase I that ferro fluids can be used to create a self-pumping cooling system that can extend the life and improve performance of highpower transducers or other electro-mechanical devices. In the Phase I demonstration a resistor submerged in a ferrofluid was powered so that its temperature increased to over 1200C. Upon introduction of the appropriate magnetic fi ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy

Icing is among aviation’s most serious weather hazards because it renders aircraft unflyable before flight and severely reduces aircraft performance during flight. Existing approaches for mitigating ice accretion on leading edges, such as the inflatable boot and liquid deicer can significantly increase weight, power requirements and manufacturing complexity without providing sufficient reliabili ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
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 ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: APTIMA INC Topic: N08T005
Vertical short takeoff and landing (VSTOL) operators face numerous challenges, particularly during takeoff, hover, and landing operations. Threats take the form of power lines, structures, and—in the case of combat—enemy fire. Often, these threats are obscured when visibility is compromised by dust, sand, or snow. Maintaining awareness of the surrounding environment becomes almost impossible. ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
