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. Low Cost Hollow Cathode

    SBC: Rms Engineering            Topic: N/A

    A low cost hollow cathode is proposed for use with various xenon based electric propulsion systems. In addition to a factor of five reduction in cost the proposed device would offer several advantages over the current NASA developed state-of-art hollow cathode. These advantages include a reduction in the susceptibility to damage through launch vibrations, the replacement of the life limiting swage ...

  2. Composite Insulators For 3000 Degree Celsius Environments

    SBC: Schaeffer Industries            Topic: N/A

    AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF ARCJET THRUSTERS IS THE INSULATOR HOLDING THE CATHODE BASE AND SEPARATING THE ELECTRODES. THE CURRENT BASELINE MATERIAL IS BORON NITRIDE (BN), WHICH IS WELL KNOWN FOR ITS HIGH ELECTRICAL RESISTIVITY AND HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. HOWEVER, AT ARCJET OPERATING TEMPERATURE, BN HAS A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY AND A DECREASE IN THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. ADDITION ...

  4. Adaptive Spatio-Temporal Control: a Practical Approach to Achieve Unprecedented Structural Vibration Control Performance, Robustness, and Reliability

    SBC: ETEGENT TECHNOLOGIES, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    Adaptive spatio-temporal filtering methods are proposed which are inherently suitable to utilizing many sensors and actuators to achieve superior control and monitoring of structures for vibration and shape control and damage detection. When utilizing large numbers of sensors and actuators, failure detection and failure recovery become important issues. The adaptive spatio-temporal filtering metho ...

  5. Photrefractive Polymer-Based Holographic Data Storage

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Photorefractive materials promise to enable dynamic holography and erasable high density data storage for future information technologies. This project will develop and demonstrate a holographic data storage technology using novel photorefractive polymers with electro-optic (EO) coefficients and bandwidths that are significantly superior than LiNbO3. An important advantage of these polymers is tha ...

  7. Manufacturing/in-service Health Monitoring Of Composite Structures

    SBC: Simula, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    ADVANCED COMPOSITE MATERIALS HAVE EVOLVED TO BE THE CLASS OF MATERIALS WHICH MEET THE STRICT REQUIREMENTS OF MANY GROUND- AND SPACE-BASED CRITICAL STRUCTURES. SYSTEMS WHICH INCORPORATE THESE NOVEL MATERIALS ARE FREQUENTLY EXPOSED TO HARSH ENVIRMENTS DURING SERVICE, AND MUST THEREFORE BE MANUFACTURED USING HIGH QUALITY STANDARDS. NOT ONLY IT IS DESIRABLE TO MONITOR AND CONTROL THE FABRICATION PROCE ...

  8. Ultrahigh Quality, Single-Crystal Bulk Silicon Carbide

    SBC: INTRINSIC SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide materials will revolutionize semiconductor devices for military and commercial markets. The material's wide bandgap, high electric field breakdown, high thermal conductivity give SiC capabilities that far exceed those of silicon or gallium arsenide. Despite significant progress in silicon carbide development, fundamental defects--most prominently micropipes--persist. If SiC is to s ...

  9. Optimal SiC Source Powder for Bulk SiC Growth

    SBC: INTRINSIC SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The properties of single-crystal silicon carbide are such that electronics devices from this material have demonstrated remarkable performance characteristics. Despite the material's promise, the material has not yet found acceptance in mainstream device markets because of the material's high cost, among other reasons. This Phase I SBIR proposes an SiC source powder with unique properties which wi ...

  10. Novel Technology for Electronic Multilayer Devices

    SBC: Sumi Tech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel technological approach was recently devised by Sumi Tech engineers to fabricate multilayer electronic components, which enables the manufacture of devices with very high volumetric efficiency and reliability. Inexpensive electrode materials such as copper, or aluminum are potential candidates, since the process takes place at relatively low ambient temperature (e.g., less than 400 C), thus ...
