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. Floatation Technologies for Rare Earths Enrichment of a Novel Low-cost Raw Material

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: OSD12T01

    Secure, domestic sources of rare earth elements (REE) would be of great strategic importance to the Department of Defense, as well as many commercially important industries. Our approach takes advantage of an abundant and low cost source not previously co

  2. Thermal-Shock-Resistant Sensor Windows and Domes for High-Speed Flight Made of Low-Expansion Ceramics

    SBC: Materials and Systems Research, Inc.            Topic: N08T003

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase II proposal from Materials and Systems Research, Inc. (MSRI) and University of Utah (research institution) seeks to fabricate single-phase, polycrystalline tungstate ceramics with densities greater than 99.95% and a mean grain size of less than 1 um. These ceramics have been chosen because of their low thermal expansion and low elastic ...

  3. Efficient, Environmentally-Compatible Recovery Technologies for Rhenium and Other Strategic Critical Materials

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: OSD12T04

    Rhenium (Re) was the last natural element to be identified and is the rarest of metals. The most concentrated ore contains only about 1800 ppm Re. It has a very high melting point, which leads to uses in high temperature resistant applications like cataly

  4. Novel Primary Processing of Scarce Element Ores

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: OSD12T02

    The rare-earth elements (REEs) find uses in many high tech military applications, including night vision goggles, laser range finders, precision guided weapons, and stealth technology. Their high costs (up to $6800/lb. Scandium) are due to low concentration in ores and high cost of separation. Fourteen of the REEs are listed in a single box in the periodic table, meaning they all have almost iden ...

  5. Novel Electrolytic Extraction Processes for Scarce Elements

    SBC: INFINIUM, INC.            Topic: OSD12T03

    Metal Oxygen Separation Technologies, Inc. proposes a 6-month SBIR Phase I project to demonstrate feasibility of using molten salt electrolysis with a zirconia solid electrolyte to cleanly and efficiently produce dysprosium metal from its oxide. This Phase I project will have as its goal the design of a molten salt-zirconia-anode system in the context of an electrolysis cell for producing high-pu ...

  6. Automated Human and System Performance Assessment in Operational Environments

    SBC: ADVANCED ANTI-TERROR TECHNOLOGIES CORP            Topic: N11AT001

    Our Fused-Realities-Assessments-Modules(FRAM) enables innovative new levels and types of automated quantification strategies for combining human and system performance in real-time for fused performance monitoring and after-action-review purposes. FRAM accomplishes this by fusing output of normative models of behaviors (cognitive/procedural/team), human states (physiological/affective), system sta ...

  7. Efficient Rare Earth Separation Technology

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: OSD12T02

    In this Phase I SBIR proposal, Reactive Innovations, LLC will demonstrate the technical and economic viability of a room temperature environmentally friendly technology for extraction and separation of light rare earth metals (lanthanides) with improved efficiency. Rare earths currently require multiple separation steps to yield high purity material. Decreasing the number of separation processes ...

  8. Improved Fusion of Sensor Array Data for Tactical RF Emitter Geolocation

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: N11AT012

    The predominant method used in electronic support measure (ESM) systems to detect and geolocate noncooperative RF emitters employs arrays of antennas to estimate signal angle of arrival (AOA). There are several issues that preclude wide installation and use of these for emitter geolocation. One issue is accuracy. There are various error sources, including signal noise, multipath effects, and ambig ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
