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. Power-Dense Electrical Rotating Machines for Propulsion and Power Generation

    SBC: CONTINUOUS SOLUTIONS INC            Topic: N19AT007

    The primary objective is to develop electric machine/drive topologies and power architectures that achieve the power densities required for 50% more power without the increase in weight or space requirements. In addition to PMSM-based designs, two new machine topologies will be considered. The first is a trapped flux coreless (TFC) machine that utilizes superconducting pucks made of YBCO to produc ...

  2. Compact Waste Heat Recovery Power Generation System

    SBC: SPECTRAL ENERGIES LLC            Topic: N19AT013

    The STTR topic N19A-T013 seeks innovative technology to improve the power density and efficiency of propulsion and power generation devices. To address this challenge, Spectral Energies in collaboration with its academic partner Dr. Rory Roberts at Wright State University proposes to develop a compact heat recovery system based on a supercritical CO2 based Rankin Cycle. At the end of the STTR prog ...

  3. Out-of-Oven Aerospace Composites

    SBC: CORNERSTONE RESEARCH GROUP INC            Topic: N18BT031

    Large aerospace composite structures currently require autoclaves and ovens to achieve desired performance which are expensive to purchase, costly to operate, and often limit part size and production rate. Ovens and autoclaves rely on convective heating which is inefficient, consumes large amounts of energy, and can be difficult to predict. Alternative cure processes using external heaters or hot ...

  4. Carbon Nanotube-Based Heater Coatings for Processing of Thermosetting and Thermoplastic Composites

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: N18BT031

    For this research program, Mainstream will collaborate with Colorado State University (CSU) to develop a nanostructured heater capable of curing aerospace grade composites out-of-autoclave (OOA). The use of autoclaves is the primary cost driver in composite manufacturing due to size limitations, long processing times, and inefficient energy usage. Therefore, the Navy is looking to develop a nanost ...

  5. TRACE – Target Recognition with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N18BT033

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) proposes the design and implementation of the Target Recognition with the Assistance of Artificial Intelligence (TRACE) system that incorporates classical model-based target classification and identification approaches with data-driven machine learning solutions to improve the target classification accuracy. The outcome of the TRACE systems is a set of machine lea ...

  6. Scalable Manufacturing of Composite Components Using Nanostructured Heaters

    SBC: METIS DESIGN CORPORATION            Topic: N18BT031

    Manufacturing of structural composites traditionally employs autoclaves to achieve high quality parts, including high fiber-volume-fractions and low porosity. A laminate comprised of stacked prepreg plies are cured under a vacuum in addition to ~7 bar of pressure to prevent formation of voids, particulalry in interlaminar (inter-sheet/ply) regions. However, manufacturing composites within an autoc ...

  7. Decision Support for Operators of Fully Autonomous Systems using RESTORE: Robust Execution System for Trusted Operation in Relevant Environments

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SYSTEMS CO INC            Topic: N18BT032

    SSCI and MIT (Prof. Julie Shah) propose to develop and test a system that provides real-time assurance and trust in decisions made by autonomous collaborating vehicles. The proposed system is referred to as the RESTORE and represents a decision support tool which facilitates decision making by the operator in cases when decisions by the Collaborative Autonomy (CA) system results in deviations from ...

  8. Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Teams of Autonomous Systems (VERITAS)

    SBC: APTIMA INC            Topic: OSD09T004

    different modes, while using different combinations of subsystems. This presents a challenge for the personnel validating the system during design and development; the number of combinations of environments, modes, and subsystems is exponential. They cannot all be tested, so an optimal subset of tests must be run. We propose to develop VERITAS: Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Tea ...

  9. Recovery of Rhenium from Superalloy Scrap

    SBC: LYNNTECH INC.            Topic: OSD12T04

    Recovery and re-use of Rhenium is of critical importance to the superalloy industry due to its limited availability and growing demand. The recycling loop in the superalloy industry is currently far less efficient.The proposal addresses the recovery of Rh

  10. Efficient, Environmentally-Compatible Recovery Technologies for Rhenium and Other Strategic Critical Materials

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: OSD12T04

    Rhenium (Re) was the last natural element to be identified and is the rarest of metals. The most concentrated ore contains only about 1800 ppm Re. It has a very high melting point, which leads to uses in high temperature resistant applications like cataly
