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. Impedance-based Sensing Optimization & Algorithms for Visualization of Ship Hull Structural Health Monitoring Data

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT042

    The implementation of structural health monitoring (SHM) systems into naval applications has been hindered due to component quantity, including sensors, power/communication cables, and acquisition/computation units, as well as data quality. Particularly for large-area applications such ship hulls, complexity of implied system infrastructure can be impractical, and data can be worthless with attenu ...

  2. Scalable Manufacturing of Composite Components Using Nanostructured Heaters

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT031

    Manufacturing of structural composites traditionally employs autoclaves to achieve high quality parts, including high fiber-volume-fractions and low porosity. A laminate comprised of stacked prepreg plies are cured under a vacuum in addition to ~7 bar of pressure to prevent formation of voids, particulalry in interlaminar (inter-sheet/ply) regions. However, manufacturing composites within an autoc ...

  3. Interlaminar Reinforcement of Composite Rotorcraft Components via Tailored Nanomorphologies of Aligned Carbon Nanotubes (A-CNTs)

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N19AT003

    Composites are often used in aerospace applications due to their superior specific strength and stiffness properties, as well as their resistance to fatigue and corrosion. In particular for rotorcraft, composites offer additional benefits for their versatility in tailoring material properties for such components as rotor blades. However, rotors introduce additional challenges by including multiple ...

  4. Carbon Nanotube FET Modeling and RF circuits

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: AF18BT006

    The computing demands of future data-intensive applications far exceed the capabilities of today’s electronics and cannot be met by isolated improvements in transistor technologies or integrated circuit (IC) architectures alone. Carbon Nanotube Field-Effect Transistors (CNFET) technology has emerged as leading candidate for energy-efficient and high-performance digital systems. Unfortunatel ...

  5. Compact, cold-atom clock for Navy field use

    SBC: VESCENT TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: N13AT018

    Vescent Photonics proposes to develop a compact laser system and integrate it with a cold-atom micro primary standard developed under the DARPA IMPACT program. In phase I we will investigate performance enhancements resulting from immobilizing the cold-atom sample with an optical lattice formed from an optical field whose wavelength is chosen to minimize the differential light shifts between the s ...

  6. Atomic Triaxial Magnetometer

    SBC: VESCENT TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: N19AT006

    Vescent Photonics and MIT Lincoln Labs (MIT-LL) propose to develop a quantum-based vector magnetometer with low size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP+C) for Navy applications. The proposed system will rely on probing magnetically-sensitive, atomic-like transitions of nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond to provide stable, high-bandwidth readout of the vector magnetic field with sub-picotesla sen ...

  7. High Efficiency Gain Media for Eye-Safer 1.55 µm Ultrafast Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: KAPTEYN-MURNANE LABORATORIES, INC            Topic: N10AT012

    We propose to design a high average power Er:Fiber ultrafast laser system which is pumped at 14xxnm, and at the same time solve other problems related to ultrashort pulses in fiber lasers. The advantage of using 14xxnm pumping is the reduction of the standard quantum defect from 37% to 5%, thus greatly reducing the thermal load on the system, which makes it inherently more efficient. We also inten ...

  8. Solid-State Green Laser

    SBC: Q-PEAK, INCORPORATED            Topic: N13AT023

    Green laser sources are important in advanced naval mine detection as this wavelength has good penetration though seawater. Mine detection programs such as the Coastal Battlefield Reconnaissance and Analysis (COBRA) system and the Airborne Laser Mine Detection System (ALMDS) currently use frequency-doubled 1-µm lasers as the laser source. The generation of green laser light via frequency doubling ...

  9. 3-Band Picosecond High Energy Compact Laser System

    SBC: Q-PEAK, INCORPORATED            Topic: N19AT009

    The Navy seeks technology that is oriented toward a deeper experimental and theoretical understanding of marine turbulence and laser light propagation in the marine boundary. Current measurement techniques, such as Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) technique, are limited to resolutions of 0.5 meters or greater and fall short of the required millimeter level resolution. A new type of spectral imaging modal ...

  10. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: MIDE TECHNOLOGY CORP            Topic: ST13A005

    The Mide/University of Colorado - Boulder team is proposing to use Boulder"s modeling capabilities to model the unsteadiness of the pulse generated pressures, temperatures and swirl to provide the flow information needed to optimize the turbine stages for
