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. Out-of-Oven Aerospace Composites

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: N18BT031

    Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...

  2. Carbon Nanotube-Based Heater Coatings for Processing of Thermosetting and Thermoplastic Composites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N18BT031

    For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...

  3. Scalable Manufacturing of Composite Components Using Nanostructured Heaters

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT031

    Manufacturing of structural composites traditionally employs autoclaves to achieve high quality parts, including high fiber-volume-fractions and low porosity. A laminate comprised of stacked prepreg plies are cured under a vacuum in addition to ~7 bar of pressure to prevent formation of voids, particulalry in interlaminar (inter-sheet/ply) regions. However, manufacturing composites within an autoc ...

  4. Advancing the Capabilities and Deployment of Functional Encryption

    SBC: Zeutro, LLC            Topic: N12AT025

    Functional encryption (FE) is a new vision of public key encryption that allows access controls to be embedded within a ciphertext. This project has three main components: (1) develop an FE toolkit and FE-based key management service, (2) conduct essential cryptographic research to support deployment, and (3) explore opportunities for interoperability and integration for FE with existing and futur ...

  5. Environmentally Adaptive Arctic navigation Signal Processing

    SBC: Ocean Acoustical Services and Instrumentation Systems, Inc.            Topic: N12AT016

    The OASIS/WHOI team will design and develop a long-range under-ice acoustic navigation and telemetry system. The Phase I work has resulted in a much-improved model for under-ice acoustic propagation and an in-depth exploration of the potential for regional scale (200-500 km) acoustic navigation and communication. Phase II work will focus on bounding the design problem and selecting a suitable freq ...

  6. Hybrid State-Detection System for Gearbox Components

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N12AT007

    This STTR aims to develop a novel method for detecting and tracking growth of cracks in rotorcraft gearbox. Aerospace structures are subject to dynamic loading. In particular, gearbox components experience continuous cyclic loading, wear and eventually develop fatigue cracks. As opposed to most other aircraft components, gearbox components are non-redundant, so a failure can have catastrophic cons ...

  7. Resilient Environment for Teams of Agents Making Decisions (RE-TEAM II)

    SBC: CHARLES RIVER ANALYTICS, INC.            Topic: N11AT031

    Submarine commanders must make complex decisions to accomplish increasingly diverse missions. Moreover, concurrent missions may involve contradictory requirements. Planning must also account for the unexpected, including equipment failures, environmental factors, or external events that impact the ship's mission(s). Since all submarine operations involve a degree of risk, the commander must b ...

  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 ...

  9. Maneuver Prediction and Avoidance Logic For Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Encounters with Non-Cooperative Air Traffic

    SBC: RDRTEC INCORPORATED            Topic: N13AT003

    RDRTec Inc. and Lincoln Laboratory propose to establish the feasibility and develop the plan for an extensible analytic framework and methodology to address unanticipated maneuver encounter modeling, collision risk estimation, and ownship maneuver logic. With the widespread introduction of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), the nature of the airspace will change significantly over the next 10-20 yea ...

  10. Low-Cost High Power Surface Emitting Micro-Stripe Quantum Cascade Laser Arrays

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: N13AT006

    We envision a coherently coupled QCL array architecture featuring 2nd order DFB gratings to vertically couple out light with excellent beam quality and high output power. This approach does not require cleaving of the devices or facet coatings and is therefore inherently more robust and manufacturable than facet emitters.
