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. HASLOC: Hierarchical And-Or Structures forLocalization and Object Recognition

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT014

    Target detection and recognition is a challenging problem because of changes in appearance, viewing direction, occlusion and other covariates. Systems that can accurately and efficiently detect and track objects can provide several benefits in surveillance, monitoring and other applications. As part of this effort, we propose to develop a robust learning-based approach to detect, track and recogni ...

  2. Radio Frequency (RF) Filter Tuning Element

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: AF18AT015

    This proposed effort will focus on the design, development and analysis of a high voltage BST based varactor for tunable filter applications. The high voltage BST varactor will enable wide tuning range filters with high quality factor and increased power handling and linearity. Advanced filter design techniques will also be leveraged to increase the effective quality factor of the filter resonator ...

  3. Orientation-patterned Semiconductor Crystals with Low Insertion Loss and High Resistance to Laser Damage

    SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC.            Topic: AF18AT016

    The Air Force needs tunable laser systems with high average power in the mid-infrared region of the spectrum for military applications including defense against heat-seeking missiles.Currently-fieldedlaser systems, based on nonlinear frequency conversion in periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN), have limited optical power at wavelengths between 4 m and 5 m because of intrinsic absorption in th ...

  4. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation (RADARS)

    SBC: COLDQUANTA, INC.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta, in partnership with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado at Boulder, proposes to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combines Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF elec ...

  5. Detection of Radio Frequency and Magnetic Field Bioeffects in Living Cells

    SBC: QUINC.TECH INC.            Topic: AF18AT001

    The Biomagnetics Micro Dosimetry System (BMDS) program will design, model, and simulate a microdosimetry system that can measure and create a three dimensional map of weak radiofrequency signals in biological organisms. The heart of the BMDS project is the front end called a Quinc, that delivers very sensitive, broad band measurements with high spatial resolution.The Quinc based front end is a val ...

  6. Multi-Physics Models for Parachute Deployment and Braking for Coupling with DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT004

    Design analysis of parachute recovery systems has relied on a combination of core design principles, historical empirical data, and extensive testing for decades. Parachute motion involves complex phenomena involving porous bluff-body aerodynamics and highly deformable cloth. The proposed project is a plugin for the DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel simulation suite that will enable high-fidelity simulations ...

  7. Metasurface optics for compact and scalable polarization cameras

    SBC: Metalenz Inc.            Topic: AF18AT005

    Metasurfaces are a fascinating new direction for producing small form factor optical elements that can be directly integrated with a variety of sensors and illumination sources. Metasurfaces have received extensive attention for their potential applications in imaging optics as they enable significantly more compact camera modules with enhanced functionality and because the unit processes to creat ...

  8. Volumetric Wavefront Sensing for the Characterization of Distributed-Volume Aberrations

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Modern Directed Energy (DE) missions require target engagements at low elevation angles and long ranges.These engagement geometries require propagation through distributed-volume turbulence. To correct for distributed-volume turbulence effects, an estimation of the turbulence along the propagation path is required. Correcting for these image aberrations will improve the quality of the target image ...

  9. Complex Object Reflectance Characterization System (CORCS)

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT007

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop a method for characterization of the full Mueller matrix for reflective scattering from a test object. The Complex Object Reflectance Characterization System (CORCS) will initially be designed for laboratory use and characterization of test objects by active imaging to measure both the Mueller Matrix and the target depth associated wi ...
