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. A Fast-Response, Electronically Controlled Fuel Injection System for Small Heavy Fuel Engines with Multi-Fuel Capabilities

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N10AT033

    Advances in electronically controlled injection technologies for diesel engines have provided a method to improve medium- to heavy-duty engine performance through increased injection pressures, multiple injections, and injection rate shaping. Although these injection systems have been primarily limited to larger engines, the ability to rapidly and precisely meter fuel for smaller engines is partic ...

  2. Innovative Passive Magnetic Thrust Bearings for High-Speed Turbomachinery

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N10AT037

    In miniature gas turbines for UAV applications, traditional bearings exhibit a typical lifetime of only 25 hours due to excessive axial loading. Mainstream proposes to use a passive, permanent magnet thrust bearing to alleviate this problem and increase service life to over 1000 hours. Since this type of bearing is non-contacting, it can operate at very high rotational speeds with minimal heat gen ...

  3. Demonstration of a JP-8 Powered Compact ECU

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: OSD09T002

    Military shelters currently use electrically driven Environmental Control Units (ECUs) to provide cooling for the air inside the shelter. The ECU is vapor compression cycle powered by a diesel generator, operating on JP-8 fuel. Other than fueling jet engines, the largest drain on U.S. military fuel supplies in current operations comes from running generators at forward operating bases. In hot cli ...

  4. Characterizing the Impact of Control Surfaces Free-Play on Flutter

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: N10AT003

    Free-play nonlinearity of the control surfaces has a direct impact on aircraft’s dynamic stability characteristics. . It is impossible to design and manufacture a control surface with zero free-play. As control surface free-play increases, tighter limits must be imposed on the aircraft mission capability. Typically, researchers have utilized an oversimplified piecewise-linear torque-rotation rel ...

  5. Probing Dense Sprays with Gated, Picosecond, Digital Particle Field Holography

    SBC: METROLASER, INCORPORATED            Topic: N10AT027

    This is a proposal to develop a unique, robust, fieldable, gated, picosecond, digital holography system for characterizing dense particle fields under harsh conditions. Many powerful imaging methods have failed to fulfill this requirement because noise from multiple scattering buries the signal needed to acquire a useful image. Solutions to this limitation are very expensive, hard to implement, an ...

  6. Mathematically Rigorous Methods for Determining Software Quality

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORP            Topic: N10AT035

    Current software development and testing methodologies are inadequate for validating software in mission-critical applications. As Dijstra famously stated: "testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence." When lives and national security is at stake, there is a need for mathematically rigorous techniques that can verify the absence of bugs. We propose to devel ...

  7. Wideband Metamaterial Antennas Integrated into Composite Structures

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: N10AT021

    A team led by NextGen Aeronautics Inc., and working with San Diego State University proposes the development of redundant wideband antennas that are embedded in composite armor structures The planned work builds upon the team’s extensive prior experience in conformal load-bearing antenna structures (CLAS), antenna design, and metamaterials. The proposed antenna is a combination of concepts that ...

  8. High-rate Manufacturing of Structural-state Sensors (MOSS)

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: N10AT031

    The goal of the proposed research is the development of a high-volume, low-cost manufacturing along with a novel deposition process that enables fabrication of a structural-state electronic system-on film. This hybrid electronic system contains a multifunctional sensor suite that can measure a structure's static (such as deformation, stress and strain) and dynamic state (such as slow or under acce ...

  9. Robust, Real Time, Full Field Strain Monitoring Over Large Areas

    SBC: NEXTGEN AERONAUTICS, INC.            Topic: N09T010

    NextGen Aeronautics in collaboration with Virginia Tech plan to build on our Phase I work and propose to further develop our concepts and designs for a scalable, fast and easy to use optical strain measurement system. Our proposed Phase II effort will focus on the development of a dual level optical camera system which uses one set of cameras to measure strains over the entire test specimen and a ...

  10. Dynamic Physical/Data-Driven Models for System-Level Prognostics and Health Management

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N10AT009

    The proposed effort leverages the capabilities of data-driven and physics of failure (PoF) based prognostic techniques for electronic systems by combining them within a hybrid approach. Data-driven and PoF-based techniques both have shortcomings; combining them into a hybrid framework allows using their capabilities in a complementary fashion, and thereby providing a reliable way of prognostics an ...
