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. Extended Look-Ahead Sensor Management for Missile Defense with a Bayes Net Battle Model

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Effective missile defense relies on an array of sensors performing diverse collection tasks to successfully engage a missile attack. Sensors cannot cover the entire battle volume continuously, and Sensor Management is needed to allocate sensors to tasksproviding the greatest mission utility. Prior research has shown two ways to achieve effective Sensor Management: (1) integrate sensor allocation ...

  2. Fluorescence sensors of heavy metal ions

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

    "ALTAIR Center proposes to develop a miniature, cost-effective fiber optic sensor array for detection of toxic heavy metal ions. The main detection principle is based on dual measurement of both absorption and fluorescence employing thin films ofporphyrin/polymer membrane. In Phase I of the project we studied the luminescence compounds and demonstrated that thin films of porphyrin-based membranes ...

  3. Self-assembling of micro-lenses on optical fibers

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

    "ALTAIR Center proposes to develop an innovative technology for fabrication of a micro-lens directly on the optical fiber employing a simple and efficient self-organization process of the lens formation based on Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD). During thisprocess the micro-lens is automatically created exactly on the fiber core as a result of a chemical reaction. Geometrical parameters of the mic ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. GaN substrates for Superior GaN based Devices

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    "There is a need for a cost-effective technology for producing III-nitride substrates for fabrication of high efficiency and high power radar transmit/receive modules, as well as opto-electronic devices. The problems with the current technology offabricating III-nitride based devices on thin films grown on foreign substrates, such as sapphire or SiC, are the plethora of defects associated with th ...

  6. Single Converter Hall Thruster Power Processor

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The need for low mass, cost and complexity electric propulsion systems driven by the growing interest in microsatellites to perform high delta-V missions requiring north/south station keeping, orbit transfer, inclination changes and precise formationflying can be enabled by Busek's multi-mode low power Hall thruster. However, state-of-the-art electric propulsion technology is complex and costly ...

  7. Rapidly Starting Cathode for Electric Propulsion

    SBC: BUSEK CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Busek's tandem Hall thruster can deliver precisely controllable, repetitive or single impulse bits of arbitrary magnitude, the latter dictated by the duration of the discharge pulse. To fully capitalize on the pulsed operation of a Hall thruster requiresa cathode capable of rapid starting to minimize the time from the command for thrust to the time the discharge pulse can be initiated. The most ...

  8. All-optical Switch Actuated by Optical Data

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "All-optical switches capable of rapidly switching light with light are needed for missile defense in the Airborne-Laser, Space-Based Laser and Space-Based Infrared System as well as in Big Safari special mission aircraft. While the commercial and militaryusefulness of optical-electrical-optical switches for security, recognition and switching applications is well established, these devices are s ...

  9. Novel Hybrid Photonic Materials for Optically Addressed Light Modulators (Subtopic A)

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "Novel bio-organic/inorganic hybrid materials for use in optically addressed light modulators is proposed. Supramolecular chemistry will be used to prepare previously unknown materials for light modulation. If successful, the proposed research willimprove the speed, pixel count, resolution and contrast of spatial light modulators while simultaneously reducing their size, weight and cost. Phase ...

  10. BMDO 014A- Novel System for Bulk Growth of Semi-Insulating SiC

    SBC: CAPESYM INC            Topic: N/A

    "It is proposed to develop a novel growth system capable of producing large diameter and long Semi-Insulating SiC crystals. The proposed system aims to achieve semi-insulating properties in the crystal by reducing the impurity levels in the reactorassociated with the graphite containment elements. The proposed growth system is based on using gas precursors instead of SiC powder, and uses a nove ...
