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. T12.02: Extensible Modeling of Metallurgical Additive Manufacturing Processes

    Release Date: 01-11-2018Open Date: 01-11-2018Due Date: 03-09-2018Close Date: 03-09-2018

    Lead Center: JPL   The subtopic of modeling of additive processes is highly relevant to NASA as NASA is currently on a path to implement additive processes in space flight systems with little or no ability to model the process and thereby predict the results. In order to reliably use this process with a variety of materials for space flight applications, NASA has to have a much deeper under ...

  2. T12.01: Thin-Ply Composite Technology and Applications

    Release Date: 01-11-2018Open Date: 01-11-2018Due Date: 03-09-2018Close Date: 03-09-2018

    Lead Center: LaRC The use of thin-ply composites is one area of composites technology that has not yet been fully explored or exploited. Thin-ply composites are those with cured ply thicknesses below 0.0025 in. and commercially available prepregs are now available with ply thicknesses as thin as 0.00075 in. By comparison, a standard-ply-thickness composite would have a cured ply thickness of appr ...
