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. 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 ...

  2. Compact Waste Heat Recovery Power Generation System

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT013

    The STTR topic N19A-T013 seeks innovative technology to improve the power density and efficiency of propulsion and power generation devices. To address this challenge, Spectral Energies in collaboration with its academic partner Dr. Rory Roberts at Wright State University proposes to develop a compact heat recovery system based on a supercritical CO2 based Rankin Cycle. At the end of the STTR prog ...

  3. Power and Propulsion System Optimization

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: N18AT012

    Unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) are currently limited in the type of missions they can perform. Limited available power limits which sensors can be run or for how long, and also limits the duration and range of the mission. More efficient propulsion systems would increase the power available to the UUV payload. Improved power distribution systems and control systems would also increase the ava ...

  4. Out-of-Oven Aerospace Composites

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: N18BT031

    Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...

  5. Compact Thermal Management System for Laser Systems

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: N18AT001

    The use of laser technologies and high-power electronics is rapidly being incorporated into tactical platforms for imaging, target designation, and range finding. Electronic equipment including lasers demand power from a tactical aircraft and produce large amounts of thermal energy as a waste product. Current thermal management technologies will not be sufficient for future aircraft as thermal man ...

  6. Carbon Nanotube-Based Heater Coatings for Processing of Thermosetting and Thermoplastic Composites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N18BT031

    For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...

  7. Innovative additive manufacturing (AM) process for successful production of 7000 series aluminum alloy components using Smart Optical Monitoring Syste

    SBC: SENSIGMA LLC            Topic: N18AT005

    Naval aircraft components are routinely made of 7000 series aluminum alloys due to their strength, weight and fatigue properties. Present Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes falls short of producing 7000 series Al alloys successfully due to lack of porosity, thermal and composition control. In-situ methods implemented to date largely only yield information about the component surface and other m ...

  8. Advanced Ship-handling Simulators

    SBC: D'Angelo Technologies, LLC            Topic: N18AT014

    There is a need to create an automated, adaptive, real time coaching module that can integrate the Conning Officer Virtual Environment (COVE) along with the associated Intelligent Tutor System (COVE-ITS) and the Conning-Officer Ship Handling Assessment (COSA) together. By automating the evaluation process, Surface Warfare Officers (SWOs) will have the opportunity to use the COVE simulations more f ...
