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. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Innovative additive manufacturing (AM) process for successful production of 7000 series aluminum alloy components using Smart Optical Monitoring Syste

    SBC: SENSIGMA LLC            Topic: N18AT005

    Naval aircraft components are routinely made of 7000 series aluminum alloys due to their strength, weight and fatigue properties. Present Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes falls short of producing 7000 series Al alloys successfully due to lack of porosity, thermal and composition control. In-situ methods implemented to date largely only yield information about the component surface and other m ...

  7. Laser Additive Manufacturing of Seven Thousand Series Aluminum Aircraft Components (LAM-STAAC)

    SBC: MV INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N18AT005

    Alloys of aluminum in the 7000 series are known to have good weight, strength, and fatigue properties and are commonly used in Naval aircraft components. Recent manufacturing trends are increasingly focused on additive manufacturing (AM) methods as a way to reduce lead time, cost, and to improve part performance. Current additive manufacturing techniques are unable to fabricate parts in 7000 serie ...

  8. Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: N18AT006

    To meet the U.S. Navy, specifically PMA-201, need for nondestructive evaluation (NDE) of concrete, including evaluating its strength, material properties, and damage localization, Luminit, LLC, and Southern Illinois University (SIU) propose to develop a novel Concrete Materials Characterization (COMAC) system, combining several methods of concrete characterization into a single sensor/software com ...

  9. Meaning-Aligned Record Synthesis for Training Emerging Capabilities (MARSTEC)

    SBC: SOAR TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N18AT003

    Operational experts collect recorded data about emerging tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) from sources such as live and virtual training exercises, and numerous test and evaluation simulations. However, instructional designers cannot easily reuse the recorded data to create new training. Without sufficient access to operational experts, expert knowledge is inaccessible and fragmented, of ...

  10. Next-Generation, Power-Electronics Materials for Naval Aviation Applications

    SBC: SIXPOINT MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N18AT004

    This STTR project develops an innovative seed fabrication technology to address the fundamental size-quality limitation of gallium nitride (GaN) substratesthe indispensable key component for GaN-based vertical high-power devices. Currently, there is no viable GaN technology to realize large-area and low-defect substrates simultaneously. The technology producing 6" and larger GaN wafers results in ...
