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. Mathematically Rigorous Methods for Determining Software Quality

    SBC: GRAMMATECH INC            Topic: N10AT035

    Software is rarely written entirely from scratch. Typically, third-party commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) components are integrated into larger software systems used both in the commercial sector and in critical infrastructure. Third-party components often come in binary form, e.g., as dynamically linked libraries, Active X controls, or plain executables. That is, the source code for those componen ...

  2. Mathematically Rigorous Methods for Determining Software Quality

    SBC: MZA ASSOCIATES CORPORATION            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 ...

  3. Maneuver Prediction and Avoidance Logic For Unmanned Aircraft System Encounters with Non-Cooperative Air Traffic

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: N13AT003

    For Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) to operate seamlessly in both the U.S. National Airspace System (NAS) and abroad, it will be crucial that they possess a sense-and-avoid (SAA) capability that can ensure safe operations among maneuvering, non-cooperative aircraft. Numerica Corporation, in partnership with Johns Hopkins University, proposes to develop a set of algorithms to model the uncertaintie ...

  4. Magnetostrictive Vibration Energy Harvester (MAVEN)

    SBC: Impact Technologies            Topic: N10AT020

    Impact Technologies, in cooperation with Dr. Mohammed Daqaq from Clemson University, propose to develop a magnetostrictive materials based device for harvesting energy from mechanical vibration. The energy harvesting device will harness power from ship-hull vibrations in order to power sensing devices. This technology will be a key enabler for improved structural and machinery health management. K ...

  5. Magnetoelectric Modules for Scavenging UAV Power from Electric Utility Lines

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC.            Topic: N19AT019

    NanoSonic will work with Penn State to develop, demonstrate and manufacture materials and systems to allow unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to scavenge magnetic field energy from electric power lines and operate continuously in the field. NanoSonic will work with energy harvesting researcher Dr. Shashank Priya and a major US aerospace company to design, fabricate and demonstrate a prototype system ...

  6. 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 ...

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

    SBC: XDOT ENGINEERING & ANALYSIS PLLC            Topic: N10AT037

    Micro gas turbine engines with state-of-the-art ultra-compact recuperators could be a real game-changer for small unmanned air vehicles and portable power generation. A key enabling technology for these engines is a low-cost, high speed bearing system that has long life, while operating without either a separate lubrication system, or oil in the fuel. For this Phase I STTR effort, Xdot Engineerin ...

  8. Local Stochastic Prediction for UUV/USV Environmental Awareness

    SBC: APPLIED OCEAN SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: N19AT022

    This project delivers a system to assess local uncertainties and track the evolution of the maritime environment around unmanned platforms at sea. The system uses Navy ocean forecasts for initial environmental guesses and outlooks and implements a Reduced Order Model (ROM) derived from Dynamically Orthogonal (DO) solutions to deliver a local uncertainty picture (for the next 24-48 hours). The ROM- ...

  9. Lightweight Layered Protection Systems for Missile Launchers and Canisters

    SBC: Strategic Insight, Ltd.            Topic: N10AT018

    The research objective is to develop Modeling and Simulation (M&S) tools to accurately predict the performance of new state-of-the-art material systems as protection for high value missiles deployed in their launchers or canisters. The focus is on adapting multi-layered novel and non-traditional material technologies to improve protection against penetration and fragment impacts, focused detonatio ...

  10. Large Component, High-quality Composite Fabrication Using Nanocarbon Heating Films

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N18BT031

    Autoclaves are typically used to fabricate high-quality composite components with acceptable thermal properties and low void volume. They provide elevated temperature processing cycles and external pressure required for adequate compaction to achieve these desired properties. However, autoclaves represent large capital and energy investment while limiting the size of fabricated parts and productio ...
