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. Diamond/W Microcathode/Microcathode Array with Very High Field Emission Current Density

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Diamond has recently emerged as a promising material for electron field emission due to its unsurpassed properties of low voltage and room temperature operation, operation robustness, simple design, and reproducibility. However, the present diamond cathodes, which are microcrystalline diamond thin films deposited on macro-substrate (mm to cm size ) suffer a few drawbacks. Only 1-10% or less of the ...

  2. Dynamic Consolidation of Powders for Very Large Components

    SBC: UTRON, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BMDO seeks development of novel methods to cut tabrication cost of metallic spacecraft and interceptor structures. UTRON proposes to develop an innovative rapid powder consolidation technique called Combustion Driven Dynamic Consolidation (CDDC) to consolidate metal (and other) powders. This technique is versatile and can be applied to various material systems such as metal and alloy powders, inte ...

  3. Embedded Sensors via Laser Engineered Net Shaping

    SBC: OPTOMEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Optomec Design Company proposes to use Laser Engineered Net Shaping (LENSTM), a Rapid Prototyping and Manufacturing (RP&M) technology currently under development at Sandia National Laboratories (SNL), as a new method for integrating instrumentation (e.g., embedded sensors) into metal structural components. SNL has demonstrated the ability of the LENSTM technology to produce near net shape stainles ...

  4. Environmentally Safe, Sprayable, Waterproof, Rapid Three Minute Room Temperature Cure Resin for the Manufacturing of Aerospace Composite Sealants

    SBC: Infinite Materials & Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Currently manufactured aerospace composites absorb water vapor to varying degrees. This moisture absorption adds weight to the composite, however, it lowers the glass transition temperature. And, subsequently, the ultimate strength of the resin holding the composite together, in the total composite matrix. For aerospace vehicles that slip the bonds of Earth and enter the vacume of space, any compo ...

  5. Fabrication of a Low-Cost, Lightweight Cu-AlN Composite for Thermal Management

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    High thermal conductivity materials with low CTE, and high strength and stiffness are required for high thermal flux applications. In addition, if these materials are relatively inexpensive, lightweight and non-toxic, and have low vapor pressure to survive in space-operating environments, they will be attractive candidates for thermal management in aerospace structures. Such materials are urgently ...

  6. Frequency-Doubling Millimeter-Wave Amplifier

    SBC: MICROWAVE TECHNOLGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose the experimental investigation of a frequency-doubling millimeter-wave amplifier (MWA) that has diverse applications such as short-wavelength radiation sources for sensors and associated systems. The MWA is proposed as a very compact, light-weight RF source in which an electron beam is injected into a deflection cavity operating at the drive frequency. A transverse magnetic field produc ...

  7. Functional Gradient Materials

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Functional gradient materials (FGMs) have a microstructurally graded transition in composition (e.g. zirconia to a nickel based superalloy). The graded transition eliminates problems associated with a discrete interface such as poor mechanical strength and transport losses. They are being actively pursued by the engineering community, particularly in Japan, as a means of taking advantage of two di ...

  8. Graded Composite Architecture for Thermal Management

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Design and fabrication of a high thermal conductivity carbon fiber/aluminum matrix composite architecture is proposed which consists of discrete segments of functional areas that can respond to complex design calling for thermal management, low-expansion, structural, and low specific weight requirements. Composites will be produced utilizing Hollow and Planar Cathode Magnetron Sputtering Processin ...

  9. High Current Cathodes with Controlled A-K Gap Glosure

    SBC: Tetra Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSED PROGRAM USES POLARIZATION REVERSAL ON FERROELECTRIC MATERIALS THAT YIELD CURRENT DENSITIES IN THE kA/cm2 RANGE. THE FAST CHANGE IN THE POLARIZATION VECTOR WITHIN THE MATERIAL RESULTS IN A TRANSITION THAT LIBERATES THE POLARIZATION INDUCED CHARGES (4 P) RESULTING IN A CURRENT PULSE LIMITED ONLY BY THE TRANSITION TIME AND SPACE CHARGE EFFECTS. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WILL DEVELOP THE TECHN ...

  10. High Energy Density Inductors

    SBC: Angstrom Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Inductors are essential components of military and commercial power management and electronic systems. Existing ferrite based inductors have reached a technology plateau that allow only marginal improvements in performance per unit volume. It is anticipated that the future inductor based technologies, such as EMI suppression, would require significantly higher energy density inductors. Fundamental ...
