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. High Performance Arcjet Engines

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    IT IS PROPOSED THAT ADVANCED ARCJET ENGINES CAN BE DEVELOPED USING KNOWN PRINCIPLES FOR ADVANCED NOZZLE DESIGN, ARC ATTACHMENT, INCREASED CHAMBER EFFECTIVE TEMPERATURE AND SO FORTH. SUCH STUDIES ARE PARTIALLY SUPPORTED BY EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS BY RESEARCHERS IN THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION. YET THESE PRINCIPLES RESULT IN INCREASED HEATING OF THE ANODE, AS THE ARC MORE EFFECTIVELY HEATS THE ANODE. THIS CA ...

  2. Thermionic Nuclear Thermal Propulsion Bimodal Reactor

    SBC: Applied Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    BIMODAL REACTORS FOR POWER AND PROPULSION HAVE LONG BEEN OF INTEREST FOR MISSIONS REQUIRINGS BOTH HIGH POWER AND LARGE DELTA-V; E.G., HIGH ALTITUDE, GEOSYNCHRONOUS AND PLANETARY MISSIONS. IT PROPULSIVE THRUST AND ELECTRIC POWER CAN BOTH BE SUPPLIED FROM THE SAME UNIT, A LARGE POTENTIAL SAVINGS CAN OCCUR. SUCH A REACTOR CAN BE DEVELOPED FROM A URANIUM CARBIDE FUELED THERMIONIC REACTOR WITH SINGLE C ...

  3. Compact Infrared Grating Laser

    SBC: CENTER FOR REMOTE SENSING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A THEORETICAL PROGRAM IS PROPOSED TO INVESTIGATE A COMPACT, LOW-VOLTAGE INFRARED GRATING LASER WITH MULTI-KILOWATT OUPUT CAPABILITY. THE RADIATION IS GENERATED BY THE PASSAGE OF AN ANNULAR BEAM OF ELECTRONS THROUGH A COAXIAL PAIR OF CONDUCTORS, THE INNER CONDUCTOR BEING A CORRUGATED CYLINDER WHICH FORMS THE GRATING. THE ELECTRON BEAM IS GUIDED BY AN AXIAL MAGNETIC FIELD. THE DIMENSIONS OF THE OPTI ...

  4. Advanced Intermetallic Matrix Composites

    SBC: CORDEC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MANY CURRENT AND PLANNED DEFENSE AEROSPACE PROGRAMS DEPEND CRITICALLY UPON RAPID DEVELOPMENT OF LIGHTWEIGHT COMPOSITE MATERIALS HAVING UNPRECEDENTED HIGH-TEMPERATURE PROPERTIES. CONTINUOUS FIBER REINFORCED INTERMETALLIC MATRIX COMPOSITES (IMC'S) HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO MEET THESE PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS, AND CONSIDERABLE RESEARCH EFFORT IS NOW DEVOTED TO DEVELOPING THEM. WE RECENTLY DEMONSTRATED A ...

  6. Ultrasmooth Finishing Of Optics

    SBC: MATERIALS MODIFICATIONS INC            Topic: N/A

    OPTICS USED IN SENSORS OR MISSILE SYSTEMS ARE MADE FROM SAPPHIRE, OR SILICON CARBIDE BECAUSE OF THEIR EXCELLENT OPTICAL OR INSULATING PROPERTIES, THEIR INERT, AND THEIR ABILITY TO RESIST HARSH ENVIRONMENTS. POLISHING SAPPHIRE BY MECHANICAL OR MECHANOCHEMICAL METHODS INDUCES RESIDUAL DAMAGE AND LIMITS THE OVERALL SURFACE ROUGHNESS (USUALLY AROUND 1 MICROINCH). THIS ROUGHNESS PRODUCES SCATTERING CEN ...

  7. Nanophase Metal Oxides for Electroceramic Sensor

    SBC: Nanophase Technologies Corp            Topic: N/A

    MANY OF THE COMMERCIAL SENSORS IN USE (OR UNDER DEVELOPMENT) ARE BASED IN METAL-OXIDE CERAMIC MATERIALS. METAL-OXIDES OFFER SPECIAL ADVANTAGES BECAUSE OF THEIR CHEMICAL AND THERMAL STABILITY, FAST RESPONSE TIMES, AND SENSITIVITY TO ELECTROCHEMICAL CHANGES. THERE ARE REPORTED CASES THAT SHOW ADSORPTION OF WATER IN METAL OXIDES OFTEN ENHANCING BOTH THE SURFACE CONDUCTIVITY AND DIELECTRIC PROPERTIES ...

  8. High Performance "Supercon" Electric Engine

    SBC: PROPULSION RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ENGINE ELECTRIC HIGH-SPEED MAGNETOSTRICTIVE MATERIAL LONG-LIFE PROPULSION RESEARCH INC WILL DEVELOP AN ULTRA-EFFICIENT, HIGH POWER LOW WEIGHT COMPACT ELECTRIC ENGINE USING A REVOLUTIONARY PHYSICAL CONCEPT. IT WILL ALLOW THE CREATION OF ELECTRIC POWERED ENGINES FOR USES IN EVERYTHING FROM "WEED-WACKERS" TO SUBMARINE ENGINES. THESE ENGINES HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR HIGH STARTING AND RUNNING TORGUE, HIG ...

  10. 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 ...
