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. Air Cycle Machine Low Friction, Medium Temperature, Foil Bearing Coating

    SBC: ACREE TECHNOLOGIES INCORPORATED            Topic: N16AT005

    The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the feasibility of using an innovative, durable, low friction, and non-toxic solid lubricant coating for foil air bearings for air cycle machines (ACM). Acrees coating provides superior wear characteristics at all temperatures and provides a substantial improvement over polyimide type coatings that are currently used on ACMs. The coating consists of tw ...

  3. Fully Encapsulating Dielectrics for Gaseous Helium Cooled Superconducting Power Cables

    SBC: TAI-YANG RESEARCH COMPANY            Topic: N16AT011

    The Navys Next Generation Integrated Power Systems (NGIPS) for on shore, surface ships, and underwater vehicles will require novel power distribution systems. State of the art prime mover power generation and high power directed weapons require power distribution cables that surpass conventional copper cable capabilities. As such, the Navy has determined that electrical power systems must increase ...

  4. Proactive Contextual Decision Support for Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    SBC: PACIFIC SCIENCE & ENGINEERING GROUP, INC.            Topic: N13AT020

    Decision making is driven by context. Context can be hard to operationalize and harness to the design of decision support systems. Modern military task displays often omit important context which can lead to singificant errors. This problem is exemplified in undersea warfare and specifically contact management for safe littoral navigation. In littoral navigation, workload may be high and team memb ...

  6. Innovative Multi-scale/Multi-physics based Tool for Predicting Fatigue Crack Initiation and Propagation in Aircraft Structural Components using Phase

    SBC: Global Engineering and Materials, Inc.            Topic: N16AT003

    A multi-scale/multi-physics integrated tool will be developed to predict fatigue crack initiation and propagation in a metallic structure by bridging the length scale from its polycrystals microstructure to a smeared continuum of its complex geometry. In order to simulate the microstructure and localized plasticity driven crack initiation, its micro-growth within a grain or across several grains, ...

  9. Novel Methods for Sensor Quieting in Turbulent Flows

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS, LLC            Topic: ST092004

    The Progeny – University of Utah team proposes a new approach for flow noise reduction to improve acoustic sensor performance. Our proposal is to investigate the ability of controlling the turbulent flow by utilizing acceleration which makes the flow locally laminar. Our proposed method of achieving acceleration is to send the flow around a concave surface, by adding a “two-dimensional bump ...

  10. Micro-sized Microwave Atmospheric Satellite Cluster (MicroMAS)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: ST092005

    Small satellites working in coordinated manner as part of a distributed constellation hold the promise to revolutionize DoD space operations. However, small satellites also have significant inherent limitations. Their size limits the types of sensors that they can accommodate. It also limits propulsion, power generation and attitude control capabilities. One way of overcoming some of these lim ...
