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. Low Cost Fabrication of Armor Protection Systems for Military Tactical Vehicles

    SBC: NexGen Composites LLC            Topic: A13AT021

    There is a great need and opportunity to develop lower cost manufacturing process for ceramic tile-based composite armor system for military tactical vehicles. The threat levels encountered by the military tactical vehicles, particularly due to the Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) pose an ever-increasing need for more lightweight and effective vehicle armor system at an affordable cost. A low-co ...

  2. Low-Cost Ball/Air/Magnetic Hybrid Bearing System for Extended-Life Micro Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: Nastec, Inc.            Topic: N10AT037

    A unique type of air lubricated thrust bearing called a Wave Bearing is proposed to assist a rolling element bearing to carry the thrust load and to improve the bearing’s life when used in a micro gas turbine engine. The Wave Bearing technology will provide improved reliability, safety and life compared to rolling element bearings used alone, as well as to allow simplification of engine design a ...

  3. Liquid Crystal-based Sensors for Detection of Airborne Toxic Chemicals for Integration with Unmanned Robotic Systems

    SBC: PLATYPUS TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A13AT004

    We aim to develop lightweight and rugged liquid crystal (LC)-based sensors suitable for integration into small unmanned vehicles, including hand-launched UAVs and throwable robots. For Phase I proof of concept, we propose to develop sensors that detect DMMP, H2S, NO2 and NH3. These gases include simulants of chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals, selected for their relevance to ...

  4. Liquid Crystal-based Sensors for Detection of Airborne Toxic Chemicals for Integration with Unmanned Robotic Systems

    SBC: PLATYPUS TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A13AT004

    In Phase I we successfully reached all goals and milestones in developing liquid crystal sensors that detected 100 ppb of each of four target gases (DMMP, hydrogen sulfide, nitrogen dioxide and ammonia) within 60 seconds. In Phase II, we propose to expand this detection capability to a total of seven gases, adding volatile organic compounds, chlorine and half-mustard to the set. We then propose ...

  6. Lightweight Magnesium Components of a Missile Body

    SBC: TERVES, LLC            Topic: MDA17T004

    Magnesium alloys have 35% lower density compared to aluminum, with improved temperature stability compared to high strength aluminum.They can also be fabricated with minimum gauge thicknesses considerably thinner than fiber composites, and are weldable, with much higher impact resistance.Traditional magnesium alloys, however, have had lower strengths than more developed aluminum alloys.Powder meta ...

  7. LeastProtocol: Minimizing Attack Surface by Removing Unwanted Protocol Features

    SBC: TRAIL OF BITS INC            Topic: N18AT018

    Standard protocols such as SSL, SSH, etc. are implemented as one-size-fits-all libraries. To maximize compatibility, these libraries implement rarely used features that increase attack surface. Examples include the SSL Heart Beat feature (HeartBleed) and weak SSH ciphers (LOGJAM).The Navy would like to reduce software attack surface by removing unused protocol features. Our proposal, LeastProtocol ...

  8. Learner Engagement and Motivation to Learn Assessment and Monitoring System

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT009

    Training can now be delivered on a large scale through emerging platforms, but training must be engaging to be effectively utilized. Key to providing training that makes a difference in the field is an understanding of how to induce high levels of engagement during learning and the ability to objectively assess engagement in real-time so that interventions can be tailored during training to optimi ...

  9. Laser and Rapid-thermal Crystallization of Low-defect GeSn and SiGeSn Layers for High Performance Infrared Detectors and Integrated Si-based Optoelectronic Devices

    SBC: EPITAXIAL LABORATORY INC            Topic: AF16AT28

    latereThis proposal describes the development of a process to synthesize low defect Ge1-xSnx and SiyGe1-x-ySnx layers on silicon and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) substrates through low thermal budget laser and rapid thermal annealing/crystallization for high performance mid-wave infrared (MWIR) photo detectors and integrated Si-based optoelectronic devices. In phase I, we demonstrated synthesis of G ...

  10. Laser Additive Manufacturing of Seven Thousand Series Aluminum Aircraft Components (LAM-STAAC)

    SBC: MV INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N18AT005

    Alloys of aluminum in the 7000 series are known to have good weight, strength, and fatigue properties and are commonly used in Naval aircraft components. Recent manufacturing trends are increasingly focused on additive manufacturing (AM) methods as a way to reduce lead time, cost, and to improve part performance. Current additive manufacturing techniques are unable to fabricate parts in 7000 serie ...
