The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY23 is not expected to be complete until September, 2024.

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. HIGH RESOLUTION HIGH SPEED BISTABLE OPTICAL DEVICE FOR OPTICAL COMPUTING APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Optron Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPTICAL COMPUTERS ARE RECOGNIZED AS POTENTIALLY USEFUL ELEMENTS IN THE QUEST TO MEET THE INTENSE BATTLE MANAGEMENT COMPUTATIONAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE SDI PROGRAM. CURRENTLY, OPTICAL COMPUTERS ARE GREATLY LIMITED IN PERFORMANCE BECAUSE NO EXISTING NONLINEAR LIGHT MODULATION DEVICE SIMULTANEOUSLY OFFERS FAST OPTICAL SWITCHING WITH HIGH GAMMA (THRESHOLD), HIGH SPATIAL BANDWIDTH, LOW POWER DISSIPATION, ...

  3. DEPOSITION OR INP ON SI SUBSTRATES FOR MONOLITHIC INTEGRATION OF ADVANCED ELECTRONICS

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A PROCESS IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR THE HETEROEPITAXIAL GROWTH OF INP ON SILICON SUBSTRATES BY METALORGANIC CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPOSITION. DUE TO ITS ELECTRON SATURATED DRIFT VELOCITY AND RADIATION RESISTANCE, INP ISAN EXCELLENT MATERIAL FOR USE IN HIGH SPEED ELECTRON DEVICES AND SPACEAPPLICATIONS. SILICON IS AN OPTIMAL SUBSTRATE MATERIAL DUE TO THE AVAILABILITY OF HIGH PURITY, LARGE AREA, LOW COST WAFER ...

  4. SURFACE MORPHOLOGY OF SILICON ON INSULATOR FILMS PREPARED BY ZONE-MELTING RECRYSTALLIZATION

    SBC: Kopin Corporation            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT TECHNIQUES TO IMPROVE SURFACE MORPHOLOGY IN SILICON ON INSULATOR (SOI) WAFERS PREPARED BY ZONE MELTING RECRYSTALLIZATION (ZMR). THE THREE AREAS OF PRIMARY IMPORTANCE IN IMPROVING THE SURFACE MORPHOLOGY OF ZMR PROCESSED WAFERS ARE: SLIP, BOW AND WARP, AND SURFACE SMOOTHNESS. SLIP IS CAUSED BY THERMALLY INDUCED STRESS THAT RESULTS FROM THE TEMPERATURE GRADIENT IN THE MELT ZON ...

  5. SOLID STATE OXYGEN COMPRESSOR FOR JOULE-THOMMPSON CRYOCOOLERS

    SBC: CERAMPHYSICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO OF INFRARED DETECTORS INCREASES DRAMATICALLYAS THE TEMPERATURE OF THE DETECTOR IS REDUCED TO CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES AND THERE HAS BEEN A SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENT IN CRYOCOOLERS TO MEET THIS NEED. HOWEVER, VALVES OF ONE TYPE OF CRYOCOOLER, THE JOULE-THOMPSON EXPANSION CRYOCOOLER, ARE PRONE TO PLUGGING BY THE FREEZING OF IMPURITIES IN THE HIGH-PRESSURE STREAM. TO ADDRESS THI ...

  6. Neurophysiological Based Methods of Guided Image Search

    SBC: Veridical Research and Design Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Complex analysis of intelligence imagery is crucial to the missions of intelligence organizations, yet remains constrained by labor-intensive, time-consuming visual search of large volumes of imagery. Many algorithms have been developed to automaticallyidentify regions of interest in large, complex sets of imagery, yet the utility of such algorithms is limited by the fact that human analysts dete ...

  7. Optical Quantum Information Processing in Photonic Crystals

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: N/A

    "Quantum mechanics predicts that quantum two-level systems - quantum bits, or simply qubits - can provide fundamentally new methods of information processing due to possible existing in an arbitrary coherent superposition of quantum states. That offers anenormous gain in the use of information technology resources such as time and memory. The first qubits and quantum logic gates are now being buil ...

  8. A Heterointegrated InGaAs 40Gb Optoelectronic Cross Bar Receiver E- IR (> 0.9 microns)

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "Advances in EO sensors and fiber optic information distribution systems havesimplified the distribution of targeting information among the varioussystems. The requirements for higher levels of functionality and performanceare pushing the levels of integration to a point that can no longer besatisfied by the industry mainstay approach of hybrid assembly. Significantimprovements in fiber-optic syst ...

  9. Agile Engagement Planning: Integrating Decision Graphs with Stochastic Dynamic Programming Solvers

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Missile Defense Engagement Planning systems are highly automated. It is the system developers, not the commanders of those systems, who are formulating the engagement planning problem and thereby deciding how engagements will be planned and executed. Inthe history of warfare system developers have never trumped commanders in deciding how a system will carry out orders, and this reversal of affair ...

  10. Model-Based Classification for Laser Radar

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Laser Radar (ladar) sensors are under consideration for BMD ground and interceptor platforms. An advantage of ladar over other modalities, such as SAR, is that it has very high range and Doppler (range rate) resolution. Therefore, ladar has the potentialto separate, characterize, and classify closely spaced objects, which is a critical part of the BMD problem. To realize this potential for com ...
