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. 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 ...

  2. Situational Awareness for Mission Critical Ship Systems

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N18AT009

    The US Navy operates a vast fleet of combat and support vessels with complex power control systems under the control and decision authority of human operators. Several current resources such as SPY-1D radar and Vertical Launch System (VLS) and future resources such as railgun, AMDR, and high energy laser (HEL) are energy hungry, exceeding current and planned power generation capability when deploy ...

  4. Active Imaging through Fog

    SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: N18AT021

    Active imaging systems are used to for imaging in degraded visual environments like that found in marine fog and other environments with a high level of attenuation and scattering from obscurants like fog, rain, smoke, and dust.These systems are still limited in range and resolution. SA Photonics is taking advantage of multiple image enhancement techniques, like wavelength tunability, pulse contro ...

  5. Cubic Boron Nitride Claddings for Friction Stir Tooling

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N18AT026

    Friction stir welding (FSW) is an attractive joining method where high strength low porosity welds can be attained. However, the high temperatures and forces required for welding high strength materials like steel require the use of exotic tools. Cubic boron nitride (cBN)-based tools offer attractive tool wear characteristics in steels, but are very costly. Conversely, refractory metal alloys are ...

  6. Control & Optimization of Multiple Illumination Characteristics (COMIC) of A Pulsed Fiber Array Laser System For Active Imaging Through Fog

    SBC: MV INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N18AT021

    Degraded weather conditions particularly, dense maritime fog, reduces the US Fleet EO/IR systems ability to maintain situational awareness and detect/identify and track targets of interest. It is the Navys goal to develop an active EO/IR imaging system that jointly optimizes illumination source properties and implements advanced image processing to improve performance and operational range of curr ...

  7. Protocol Feature Identification and Removal

    SBC: P & J ROBINSON CORP            Topic: N18AT018

    Protocols used for communication suffer bloat from a variety of sources, such as support for legacy features or rarely used (and unnecessary) functionality. Traditionally, the Navy subscribes to a blanket adoption of a standard protocol "as is". Unnecessary features are active and can be accessed by both internal and external systems creating security vulnerabilities. PJR Corporation's (PJR's) Pha ...

  8. Operational Sand and Particulate Sensor System for Aircraft Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: HAL Technology, LLC            Topic: N18AT023

    Gas turbine engines with prolonged exposure to sand and dust are susceptible to component and performance degradation and ultimately engine failure. Hal Technology’s proprietary, compact, rugged, flush-mounted, fiber-optic sensor platform measures particulate size, size distributions, and concentration for real-time engine health monitoring. Our proposed sensor will use an innovative hybrid disc ...

  9. Internet of Things (IoT) Agent (IoTA) Framework for Evaluating Effectiveness and Efficiency

    SBC: RAM LABORATORIES            Topic: N18AT027

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is increasingly being used to create smart platforms where operators are being removed from the loop. These smart capabilities include collaborative IoT sensors and platforms that are self-aware and provide capabilities of self-prediction, self-configuration, and self-maintenance. To fully take advantage of these advances, however, testbeds and frameworks are needed to ...

  10. Information-based Norms on Flow, Operations, and Traffic Over Networks (INFOTON)

    SBC: ISEA TEK, LLC            Topic: N18AT027

    The Internet of Things (IoT) connects people, data, and "things" (e.g., software, sensors, platforms), facilitating the translation of information into actions. Although naval platforms’ networks and communication suites have evolved significantly in the past few years to support such required connectivity, one of the greatest technical challenges still facing the military community is the proce ...
