NOTE: The Solicitations and topics listed on this site are copies from the various SBIR agency solicitations and are not necessarily the latest and most up-to-date. For this reason, you should visit the respective agency SBIR sites to read the official version of the solicitations and download the appropriate forms and rules.

If no search results for your keyword(s) were found, you are encouraged to review Agency omnibus solicitations for additional funding opportunities. Omnibus solicitations are structured to be broad, extensive Programmatic issuances with research areas related to the petitioning Agency and are not limited to predetermined Topics/Subtopics. If upon reviewing you have additional questions, you may consider reaching out to the respective Agency for clarification regarding acceptable proposals (https://www.sbir.gov/agency-contacts).

  1. NX19-001: Compact Inflatable Structures for Submerged Payload Launch & Recovery

    Release Date: 03-20-2019Open Date: 04-12-2019Due Date: 05-13-2019Close Date: 05-13-2019

    OBJECTIVE: The U.S. Navy (USN) seeks to develop enabling technologies for the use of soft inflatable structures as components to undersea payload launch and recovery (L&R) systems. Inflatable structures using seawater as the inflation medium are particularly attractive to the USN because of their ability to produce large developable shapes possessing significant load-carrying capacities and st ...

  2. NX19-005: Cool Suits

    Release Date: 03-20-2019Open Date: 04-12-2019Due Date: 05-13-2019Close Date: 05-13-2019

    OBJECTIVE: Columbia-Class submarines have a higher steel preheat requirement than previous classes. Currently, welders suffer from heat exhaustion (especially during the summer months) and the new Columbia requirement will only exacerbate this problem. Increasing weld times by just a half-hour in aggregate would yield immense productivity gains. Clothing materials that reduce the thermal body temp ...

  3. NX19-003: Flow Conditioning for Improved Piping Arrangement

    Release Date: 03-20-2019Open Date: 04-12-2019Due Date: 05-13-2019Close Date: 05-13-2019

    OBJECTIVE: In order to minimize straight pipe length requirements, a technology is sought that can expedite the establishment of a fully-developed flow profile after non-straight pipe sections such as elbows and bends. The solution should readily integrate with existing piping and should produce minimal pressure drop. Furthermore, it is required that the solution does not induce cavitation and doe ...

  5. NX19-002: On Demand Structures – Submarine Launch of UUVs

    Release Date: 03-20-2019Open Date: 04-12-2019Due Date: 05-13-2019Close Date: 05-13-2019

    OBJECTIVE: The U.S. Navy (USN) seeks to develop enabling capabilities for launch and recovery (L&R) operations of Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs) from submarines at prescribed submergence conditions. More specifically, there is a need to launch vehicles of different hull diameters from a standard 21-inch diameter by 25-foot long tube (ocean interface). To prevent damage to the tube and veh ...

  6. NX19-004: Quiet Bunks

    Release Date: 03-20-2019Open Date: 04-12-2019Due Date: 05-13-2019Close Date: 05-13-2019

    OBJECTIVE: Today’s sailors are asked to perform ever increasing tasks and thus need to be at peak performance. Restful sleep is essential to achieving this peak performance, yet the close working quarters inside submarines can be detrimental to sleep cycles. Therefore, materials and uses of materials to bolster the natural sleep cycle for more restorative rest are desired. Additionally, soun ...
