The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. Wireless Networked Sensors for Remote Monitoring in Propulsion Systems

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC.            Topic: T1301

    This NASA Phase I SBIR program would fabricate wireless networked nanomembrane (NM) based surface pressure sensors for remote monitoring in propulsion systems, using SOI (Silicon on Insulator) NM techniques in combination with our pioneering HybridSil ceramic nanocomposite materials. Such low-modulus, conformal nanomembrane sensor skins with integrated interconnect elements and electronic devices ...

  2. Innovative Hybridsil Poly(Siloxane Imide) Composite Repair Materials and Methods

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC.            Topic: T1202

    Through the proposed STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will create an innovative low viscosity, high Tg copolymer injection repair material and methodology that enables fiber reinforced composite repair within a short time frame in areas with limited user access. The proposed injection repair material will consist of fluidic HybridSil poly(siloxane imide) resins that are molecularly engine ...

  3. Integrated Sensors for the Evaluation of Structural Integrity of Inflatable Habitats

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC.            Topic: T1203

    Future long-duration, crewed space habitat systems will be inflatable structures. This type of structure is advantageous in that it is not limited to the diameter of the launch vehicle and can therefore provide a greater volume of living and work space. Unlike conventional metal structures, however, softbody inflatables require support members to maintain their desired shapes. Despite their robust ...

  4. Reusable Nanocomposite Membranes for the Selective Recovery of Nutrients in Space

    SBC: NANOSONIC INC.            Topic: T702

    Through the STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will create low-cost, reusable membranes that selectively capture and recycle nutrients (e.g., N, P, K) from urine in space. Urine is a readily available commodity in space that is rich in valuable nutrients for plant growth. Humans produce individually about 500 L of urine per year that contains ~7 g/L of nitrogen (N), ~1 g/L phosphorous (P) ...

  5. Efficient Composite Repair Methods for Launch Vehicles

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: T1202

    Polymer matrix composites are increasingly replacing traditional metallic materials in NASA launch vehicles. However, the repair and subsequent inspection methods for these materials are considerably more complicated. Typically, a composite laminate patch must be manually fabricated and bonded or co-cured to the damaged structure. To ensure high quality patches with sufficient compaction and l ...

  6. Next Generation Water Recovery for a Sustainable Closed Loop Living

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: T601

    Among the numerous technological advances sought in order to facilitate human space travel, solutions and innovations are needed for techniques that supports the mass- and energy-efficient maintenance of closed air, water, and waste systems in spacecraft habitats that operate within microgravity. As missions are foreseen to be extended with limited earth resupply available there is need to develop ...

  7. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: T802

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to develop an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged, and miniature ...

  8. Ultraefficient Themoelectric Devices

    SBC: MICROXACT INC.            Topic: T801

    Thermoelectric (TE) devices already found a wide range of commercial, military and aerospace applications. However, at present commercially available TE devices typically offer limited heat to electricity conversion efficiencies, well below the fundamental thermodynamic limit, calling for the development of higher efficiency materials. The team of MicroXact Inc., Virginia Tech and Sundew Technolog ...

  9. Advanced Simulation Framework for Design and Analysis of Space Propulsion Systems

    SBC: STREAMLINE NUMERICS INC            Topic: T901

    The innovation proposed here is a high-performance, high-fidelity framework in the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code called Loci-STREAM to enable accurate, fast and robust simulations of unsteady multiphase flows such as combustion involving liquid-gas phases in liquid rocket injectors and solid-gas phases in solid rocket motors, and cryogenic cavitation in delivery systems of liquid rocket ...

  10. Multi-Robot Planetary Exploration Architectures

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: T101

    Space policy direction is shifting, particularly with respect to human goals. Given the uncertainty of future missions to the moon, Mars, and other bodies, a tool that allows for informed analysis of the option space is particularly relevant. Aurora Flight Sciences and MIT propose to further develop the Multi-Robot Planetary Exploration Architecture (MRPEA) methodology, a suite of software tools ...
