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. Decision Support for Operators of Fully Autonomous Systems using RESTORE: Robust Execution System for Trusted Operation in Relevant Environments

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: N18BT032

    SSCI and MIT (Prof. Julie Shah) propose to develop and test a system that provides real-time assurance and trust in decisions made by autonomous collaborating vehicles. The proposed system is referred to as the RESTORE and represents a decision support tool which facilitates decision making by the operator in cases when decisions by the Collaborative Autonomy (CA) system results in deviations from ...

  2. Optimized Higher Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: METAMAGNETICS INC            Topic: N19AT001

    HPM (high power microwave) weapons could disable vehicles, enable vehicle recovery, and reduce collateral damage. Metamagnetics, in partnership with Professor Jane Lehr (University of New Mexico), and General Atomics propose a completely solid-state HPM system based on their work in Gyromagnetic Nonlinear Transmission Lines (gNLTL) and compact High-Gain Slotted Waveguide Antennas. The system will ...

  3. Targeted Enhancement of Critical Composite Interfaces using Vertically Aligned Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: N12 TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N19AT003

    Vertically-aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) will be selectively applied at interfaces in laminated composite structures to effect locally the mechanical properties that limit rotorcraft structures, such as fatigue and damage tolerance. In Phase I this work will quantify these effects in CFRP and CFRP/GFRP hybrid coupons. The VACNT material will be transferred directly onto prepreg plies, but also ...

  4. Catastrophic Optical Damage Mitigation in Quantum Cascade Lasers by Facet Disordering

    SBC: N2 Biomedical, LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    Quantum cascade laser optical output power is limited by laser facet catastrophic optical damage (COD). In edge-emitting semiconductor lasers COD is a thermal runaway process wherein the front facet of the laser heats under high power operation. This facet heating reduces the semiconductor bandgap which increases the optical absorption and also increases the electrical injection current in the fac ...

  5. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: PENDAR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    In this program, we will develop solutions to optimize QCL fabrication processes, such as facet passivation and high thermal conductivity coatings, that will mitigate the reliability issues for high power QCL applications. In phase I, we will first evaluate all concepts and efforts that have been largely investigated for GaAs based high power diode lasers and transfer the knowledge to InP based QC ...

  6. Process to Mitigate Catastrophic Optical Damage to Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: IRGLARE LLC            Topic: N19AT004

    The development of a catastrophic optical damage model for quantum cascade lasers describing instantaneous laser damage at high optical power levels is proposed. The model will be validated by comparison to experimental data. Based on obtained results, changes to laser design and laser fabrication resulting in an increased damage threshold will be implemented. The work will ultimately result into ...

  7. Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integrated Wavelength Beam Combining

    SBC: PENDAR TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT005

    Pendar Technologies proposes to develop the next generation of compact, high power quantum cascade laser (QCL) sources with output power exceeding 10 Watts at a wavelength of 4.6 microns. The proposed subsystem will include a DFB QCL array integrated monolithically with power amplifiers, low-loss passive waveguides resulting from ion implantation and optical elements aimed at realizing on-chip wav ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. GECCO: Gecko-gripper for EOD with Cavitation Cleaning Operation

    SBC: VALOR ROBOTICS, LLC            Topic: N19AT011

    The objective of the Phase I proposal is to investigate the application of controlled cavitation cleaning technology in conjunction with gecko-inspired mechanical adhesion and soft elastomeric applicators for use in non-intrusive EOD operations. This investigation requires the proof-of-concept testing and validation of a controlled cavitation cleaning mechanism, and a soft robotic gecko-inspired m ...

  10. 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 ...
