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. Adaptive Learning for Stall Pre-cursor Identification and General Impending Failure Prediction

    SBC: Frontier Technology Inc.            Topic: N10AT008

    Frontier Technology, Inc. (FTI) and Northeastern University propose to investigate and develop an innovative approach to predict stall events of aircraft engines prior to occurrence and in sufficient time to allow the FADEC controller to adjust engine variables. The team will utilize vector quantization and neural network techniques to develop accurate models of engine behavior that will be used t ...

  2. A Li-Ion Battery Tool for Predicting Life and Performance for Satellite Orbit Operations Scenarios

    SBC: GLOBAL AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: MDA08T008

    The expected life of satellite Li-Ion batteries is determined by many factors, including thermal considerations, electrode chemistries, orbit and mission life, DOD, and pulse power requirements. First-principles battery model literature pertains primarily to orbital cycling at moderate DOD under isothermal conditions without variable power loads. Knowledge must be extended to encompass wider life ...

  3. Guidance, Navigation, and Control System for Maneuverable Pico-Satellites

    SBC: Austin Satellite Design, LLC            Topic: T601

    Pico-satellites are an emerging new class of spacecraft. Maneuverable pico-satellites require active guidance, navigation, and control (GN&C) systems to perform coordinated tasks such as formation flying and automated rendezvous and docking. A compact, low power GN&C system will be fabricated and tested for use on pico-satellites. The proposed design provides 6 degrees-of-freedom (DOF) translat ...

  4. Multi-scale Physics-Based Models for High Strength Titanium Alloys Accounting for Higher-Order Microstructure Statistics.

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT29

    The goal of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of new multi-scale models for linking higher order micro-structure descriptions to failure initiation and crack propagation for high cycle fatigue of high strength titanium alloys. This includes new high temperature materials such as the lightweight intermetallic titanium aluminide turbine blades to be used in the lower pressure sections ...

  5. Fracture Evaluation and Design Tool for Welded Aluminum Ship Structures Subjected to Impulsive Dynamic Loading

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N10AT041

    A software tool for fracture evaluation and load deflection prediction of welded aluminum ship structures subjected to impulsive loading will be developed by enhancing and integrating an existing extended finite element method (XFEM) for dynamic fracture of thin shells in Abaqus. The software package will be able to model arbitrary crack paths as dictated by the physics of the scenario, completely ...

  6. Exact modeling of targets in littoral environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N09T026

    The US Navy needs the capability to model acoustic propagation in complex ocean environments containing natural or man-made objects. Such accurate modeling requires the solution of the wave equation in the ocean containing scatterers. In the absence of the scatterer, the oceanic waveguide can be assumed to be axially symmetric. This allows certain types of physically valid approximations to be mad ...

  7. Advanced Nonlinear Transmission Lines as High Power Microwave Sources

    SBC: HEM TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF09BT14

    Current high power microwave technology typically consists of electron beam sources which require high vacuum and large magnets. Such systems are typically difficult to use in the harsh environment associated with the modern battlefield. These systems are very sensitive to vibrations and typically can be easily damaged if dropped or launched from a weapon system. Nonlinear transmission lines, N ...

  8. Sustainable Materials for Thermal Management of Base Camps

    SBC: HI-Z TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A10AT024

    Hi-Z Technology, Inc. (Hi-Z) and the University of California San Diego propose to adapt Hi-Z’s innovative Quantum Well (QW) thermoelectric (TE) technology to develop a TE cooler for the Army’s base camp tents. The cooler is to be embedded in the flexible tent materials and powered by electricity generated by photovoltaics. Hi-Z has developed nanocomposite QW TE materials that have high Figur ...

  9. Innovative Combat Simulation to Craft Tomorrow’s UAV Operational Doctrine

    SBC: HPS Simulations            Topic: AF09BT31

    Existing computer combat wargames offer a sophisticated and high fidelity base platform for accurately modeling standard combat scenarios. However, the rapid development of UAV capabilities in terms of sizes, weapons, sensors, communications and flight ability is presenting a new challenge for these simulations. At the same time, the general state of world affairs is changing such that the likeli ...

  10. Theoretical Innovations in Combining Analytical, Experimental, and Computational Combustion Stability Analysis

    SBC: HYPERCOMP INC            Topic: AF09BT38

    Combustion stability is an important consideration in the design of liquid rocket engines. While fundamental modes of unstable operation in simple geometries are easily identified using analytical methods, recent times have seen these methods greatly expand in scope, applied in semi-numerical format to increasingly complex geometries and flow situations. Much remains to be explored in understandin ...
