The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. 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 ...

  2. Low-Cost High Power Surface Emitting Micro-Stripe Quantum Cascade Laser Arrays

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: N13AT006

    We envision a coherently coupled QCL array architecture featuring 2nd order DFB gratings to vertically couple out light with excellent beam quality and high output power. This approach does not require cleaving of the devices or facet coatings and is therefore inherently more robust and manufacturable than facet emitters.

  3. Multi-scale modeling of corrosion fatigue damage using peridynamics theory

    SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N13AT007

    The overall objective of this effort is to identify, and validate a suitable methodology and the associated multi-scale computational technique for predictive assessment of corrosion fatigue damage in Naval aircraft. Annual costs for corrosion inspection and repair of military aircraft are estimated to exceed $1B. Predictive modeling of corrosion fatigue damage is challenging since it has to captu ...

  4. Parametric Analysis of Various Test Configurations for Measuring the Interlaminar Fracture Toughness of CMCs using LayerSlayer and Abaqus

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: N13AT008

    The low weight, excellent durability and heat resistance of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) make them attractive materials for use in aircraft engine hot sections, where improved overall engine efficiency can be realized. Nevertheless, the interlaminar properties of CMCs must be well understood before CMCs can realistically replace metallic superalloys in engine hot sections, and no standardized ...

  5. Soft and Elastomeric Intramuscular Electrode with Therapeutic Delivery Capability

    SBC: TDA RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A13AT019

    Approximately 5-6% of military injuries involve some form of major peripheral nerve injury with little chance of spontaneous healing. Currently these injuries lead to major impairment of voluntary muscle function in the limbs and extremities, making tasks of walking, reaching, grasping, etc. very difficult or impossible for many patients. It is not enough to focus therapeutic treatment on the se ...

  6. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: ST13A005

    The Mide/University of Colorado - Boulder team is proposing to use Boulder"s modeling capabilities to model the unsteadiness of the pulse generated pressures, temperatures and swirl to provide the flow information needed to optimize the turbine stages for

  7. Prehensor for one atmosphere diving suit

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: N13AT010

    Current atmospheric diving suits and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) have end effectors with simply 1 DOF. This rudimentary manipulation results in excessive time spent working a problem underwater, development of task specific tools that can be operated by the pliers or acceptance that a specific job simply can't be accomplished. Vishwa Robotics proposes a teleoperated, anthropomorphic end ...

  8. A Rapid Optical Approach to Quantitative Composite Bond Quality Assessment

    SBC: SPECTRAL SCIENCES INC            Topic: N13AT011

    Composite materials are widely used in aircraft to reduce weight and cost, improve structural performance, and boost fuel efficiency. However, composites are susceptible to adhesive bond quality issues, including kissing bonds which may occur because of initial fabrication or service related issues. Detection of such weakened bonds requires an easily used detection approach to routinely monitor co ...

  9. Progressive Model Generation for Adaptive Resilient System Software

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: N13AT014

    Complex software systems are typically developed by disparate engineering teams working concurrently. At the same time, software requirements are frequently dynamic, evolving even during active development cycles. Discrepancies between how software is defined and how it is implemented at the modular level can cascade into critical system errors when modules are integrated. More troubling is that i ...

  10. Ship Wake Velocity Mapping Using InstantEye MAV

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: N13AT015

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and their academic partner, West Virginia University (WVU), are pleased to propose a uniquely innovative approach to measuring the three-dimensional air wake velocity field behind ship structures and towers. The velocity data is needed to support the validation of CFD models that will ultimately be used to provide sufficient safety margins for ship aircraft operations ...
