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. AN ULTRA FAST SCINTILLATOR FOR WELL LOGGING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    BECAUSE OF THEIR LONG DECAY TIMES, SCINTILLATORS IN NEUTRON LOGGING TOOLS ARE RESPONSIVE PRIMARILY TO THE GAMMA RADIATION FROM THE NEUTRON CAPTURE SPECTUM. THIS INHIBITS POROSITY MEASUREMENTS IN GAS-FILLED ZONES AND SUBSTANTIALLY LIMITS THE ELEMENTAL INFORMATION ON THE STRATA WHICH CAN BE ACQUIRED. ADVANCES IN NEUTRON LOGGING TOOLS REQUIRE A NEW SCINTILLATOR MATERIAL CAPABLE OF MAKING PRECISION ME ...

  2. A HIGH ADHERENCE CERAMIC COATING FOR EROSION RESISTANT APPLICATIONS

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    WOOD AND RESIN MATRIX COMPOSITE PROPELLERS FOR UNMANNED AIR VEHICLES SUFFER UNACCEPTABLE EROSION DAMAGE DUE TO LIQUID AND SOLID IMPACT. POLYMERIC PROTECTIVE COATINGS ARE INEFFECTIVE IN SOLID PARTICLE ENVIRONMENTS. THE BROAD DAMAGE AREA OF PROPELLERS MAKES METALLIC PROTECTIVE COATINGS, SUCH AS HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED FOR HELICOPTER BLADES, UNACCEPTABLE FROM A WEIGHT PENALTY. CONVENTIONAL CERAMIC COATIN ...

  3. Reclamation Reuse of Pyrotechnic Ingredients

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The Navy has over 14,000 tons of pyrotechnic flares and smoke munitions forecasted to enter the Resource Recovery and Disposition stockpile by FY 2001. Disposal of pyrotechnics is now limited to open burning by controlled incineration. Processes to demil these munitions while recovering Valuable constituents are needed. TPL is the leading company in the development of demilitarization resource re ...

  4. Volatile Non-Toxic Compounds as Fuel Combustion Inhibitors

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Weapon payloads are needed to degrade an adversary's military capability while minimizing the destructive effect on civilian populations. A payload which inhibits operation of internal combustion engines while having no destructive impact on human beings would meet a variety of non-lethal weapon requirements. Immobilization of engines by uptake of fuel combustion inhibitor (FCI) compounds, tailor ...

  5. Low Cost, Sensor System for Real-Time Detection of Explosives, Poison Gases, and Other Personnel Hazards

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Events including the Oklahoma CIty bombing and the Sarin attack in the Tokyo subway have emphasized the vulnerability of personnel, both military and civilian, to unexpected attack with conventional explosives and chemical substances. To combat this threat requires portable, low cost sensor systems capable of detecting a variety of dangerous materials at extremely low concentrations. Such a tech ...

  6. Practical, Cost-Effective, Nondestructive Evaluation Technique for Composite Materials

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The mechanical characteristics of advanced composite materials are strongly affected by physical parameters such as ply orientation, thickness of the layers, and homogeneity of the fibers. Although proper material integrity is critical for performance, many factors influencing mechanical properties cannot be detected by visual inspection Small anomalies or incipient degradations including d ...

  7. Low Temperature Processing of Boron Carbide Cement Composite for Tough, Wear Resistant Structures

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Natural materials such as tooth, bone or shell consist of a high volume fraction of ceramic grains coated by thin layers of proteinaceous film. The ceramic grains are grown in situ in a pre-formed organic polymer matrix. The organic portion provides high toughness, while the ceramic component provides stiffness. This unique microstructure allows for mechanical properties superior to man-made ce ...

  8. Polymer Infiltration/Pyrolysis Processing of TMD Missile Propulsion Components

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research is directed toward demonstrating the feasibility of manufacturing refractory matrix continuous fiber-reinforced ceramic composites (RM-CFCCs) by Polymer Infiltration/Pyrolysis (PIP) processing. RM-CFCCs are currently produced only by Chemical Vapor Infiltration (CVI) which is very costly and time consuming. PIP processing is a simple extension of the methods used to manufactu ...

  9. Porous Sol-Gel Derived Ceramic Release Agent

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Breathable release coatings that can withstand processing conditions up to 750F are needed for use on ceramic tooling. In situ removal of volatiles in solvent-based composite processing is a critical issue that will enable production of high quality parts at lower cost per part. Current release coatings meet neither the temperature nor the solvent transport requirements of solvent-based composit ...

  10. Development of Safe, Effective Difluoramination Reagents

    SBC: TPL, INC            Topic: N/A

    Rocket motors that develop greater thrust with lower weight and volume require-ments are an ever present goal of the BMDO. One method of providing this is through formulation of higher energy propellant mixtures. TPL proposes to develop a new method of effectively producing new high perfor-mance propellant constituents for launch, orbit-orbit transfer and station keeping propulsion systems. The p ...
