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.

  3. 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 ...

  4. Large Eddy Simulation (LES) Flow Solver Suitable for Modeling Conjugate Heat Transfer

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19BT027

    Accurate prediction heat transfer in gas turbine components subject to cooling requires high fidelity modeling of heat transfer in the presence of high Reynolds number turbulent flow. The cooling internal to the blades results in sustained temperature gradients within the structural parts, from low temperature in the interior of the structure to increasingly higher temperature closer to the surfac ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Interlaminar Mode I and Mode II Fracture Toughnesses in Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs)

    SBC: ALPHASTAR TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS LLC            Topic: N13AT008

    Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC)'s are highly susceptible to interlaminar shear failure at elevated temperatures. Therefore, interlaminar properties, critical design limitation of CMC should be assessed accurately with appropriate test methods to ensure overall structural reliability/integrity of components in Naval gas turbine engines. AlphaSTAR proposes to develop rigorous, precise, and innov ...

  8. Integrated photonic Raman sensor on a chip

    SBC: PARTOW TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT023

    A photonic integrated spectrometer based on high-index contrast thin film platform is proposed for Raman signal processing. Raman signal generation on the chip via waveguide collection integrated with a spectrometer is proposed to increase the efficiency and signal to noise ratio and significantly reduce cost and the size of Raman sensor systems. All components of the proposed Raman detection syst ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
