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.

  4. Development of the Hypersonic Environment- Sensor EO/IR Effects Software (HySEES)

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES, INC            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: Electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) sensors are key to the mission success of future hypersonic vehicles. Although EO/IR sensors have been extensively used for subsonic flight regimes, the hypersonic flight regime creates new conditions and complexities with significant impact on optical sensors. These complexities include turbulent, high temperature gas that is in Non-Local Thermodynamic Equ ...

  6. Prediction and Measurement of the Soot Build-Up in Film-Cooled Rocket Engines

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: The need for improved performance of liquid rocket engines requires efficient wall cooling technologies to mitigate high heat fluxes from hot combustion gases to the engine wall in the thrust chamber. High heat fluxes to the chamber liners can be overcome by fuel film cooling (FFC) of the inside chamber using the liquid propellant. Moreover, the thermal cracking of the fuel creates coke ...

  7. Measurement and Modeling of Surface Coking in Fuel-Film Cooled Liquid Rocket Engines

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF15AT21

    ABSTRACT: Designing an efficient and effective film cooling system to protect critical components of modern rocket engines requires a significant number of challenges to be addressed. Complicating the already difficult hydrodynamic challenges, thermal cracking of hydrocarbon fuels is always accompanied by coke formation. The coke deposits on the combustor and nozzle walls reduces heat fluxes and c ...

  8. Active Control of a Scramjet Engine

    SBC: COMBUSTION SCIENCE & ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF15AT19

    ABSTRACT: The hydrocarbon-fueled scramjet is capable of providing hypersonic air-breathing propulsion for high-speed applications. The effective operation of high-speed air-breathing engines (ram- and scram-jets) over a wide range of flow parameters (velocity and altitude) is one of the most technically difficult challenges in the design of hypersonic vehicles. The most promising approach to overc ...
