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. 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 ...

  2. Development of Navy Wave Rich Collaboration for Command and Control

    SBC: SOLUTE            Topic: N10AT045

    The SOLUTE team’s Phase I technical approach consists primarily of a feasibility study assessing the viability of a Navy implementation of the algorithms, standards, and protocols that comprise Google's Wave technology. Of specific concern is Wave’s ability to handle varying bandwidth and DIL communications channels associated with Navy platforms. While computer science research in the field o ...

  3. Adaptive Fleet Synthetic Scenario Research

    SBC: KAB LABORATORIES INC.            Topic: N10AT044

    Synthetic scenario-based training of Navy personnel in the use of Navy SIGINT/IO systems has helped to reduce training costs, and it has enabled the personnel to be trained in an environment that sufficiently approximates real-world situations that could not otherwise be accomplished within the class room. However, scenario development is highly complex and involves a great deal of human effo ...

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

    SBC: Raydiance, Inc.            Topic: N10AT012

    Compelling applications of infrared ultrafast lasers—ranging from ship self defense and aircraft self defense, to medical and micromachining applications—have defined a critical performance point at about one millijoule per pulse from a reliable and robust portable laser system with high average power. Increasing amplifier efficiency is a critical need in order to reach high average powers nee ...

  5. Probabilistic Prediction of Location-Specific Microstructure in Turbine Disks

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC FORMING TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT028

    While there are established methods available in determining the fatigue life of critical rotating components, there is still room for improvement for better understanding and prediction of life limiting factors. Improved risk assessment of jet engine disk components would require probabilistic modeling capability of the evolution of microstructural features, residual stresses and material anomali ...

  6. Innovative Application of Urban ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) Imagery for High Fidelity Training Devices

    SBC: CG2, Inc.            Topic: N09BT038

    In today’s information age, there are vast resources of data on every region of the Earth. The application of geospecific imagery over large areas has been limited to terrain for the most part. The hindrances to full use of geospecific imagery are the labor required to create the databases, and limits on the rendering capacity of current image generators (IGs), both in polygon count and texture ...

  7. Integrally Bladed Rotor (IBR) Blend Optimization Tool

    SBC: M4 ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N13AT002

    M4 Engineering and UCLA propose to develop software for rapidly and accurately assessing the impact of blend repairs on bladed disk structures. Reduced order modeling techniques will be employed to efficiently simulate modal responses and parametric models of blend repairs will be generated. This approach will be coupled with an optimization scheme for determining optimal blend geometry with minim ...

  8. 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 ...
