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. Super Parallel Holographic Optical Correlator for Rapid Identification of Targets (BMDO/02-211B: Optical Devices)

    SBC: DIGITAL OPTICS TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    "In many situations, it is necessary to identify a target rapidly. Here, we offer to demonstrate a novel device that can search through more than ten million images, stored in a one terabyte holographic memory unit (HMU), in a millisecond. Called the superparallel holographic optical correlator (SPHOC), this device can be viewed as nearly two thousands holographic optical correlator (HOC) running ...

  2. Superior and Affordable Infrared Windows for High-Speed Missiles

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The program will demonstrate the scientific, technical and commercial merit of our innovative infrared window material and cost-effective production process. The materials will have IR transmission characteristics close to that of current monolithicsapphire and ALON window materials. Additionally, our self-reinforced single crystal oxide material will provide a substantial improvement in therma ...

  3. Subtopic B Radar and MMW: Mobile mmW Radiotelescope for Detection of Rocket Plumes at Lunch

    SBC: PROSENSING INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This Phase I SBIR proposal addresses the use of millimeter-wave radiometry to detect continuum radiation from rocket plumes at launch. Preliminary experiments carried out in a rocket test bed at Stennis AFB, showed that the radiometric signature of arocket plume can exceed 1000o C at 35, 60 and 95 GHz. These results suggest that rocket plumes can be readily detected using a millimeter-wave radiom ...

  4. Structural Materials, Components and Composites

    SBC: MIDE TECHNOLOGY CORP            Topic: N/A

    "Mid¿ is proposing a novel and innovative strain-sensor-grid using pseudoelastic shape memory alloys. By embedding a grid of ultra-thin pseudoelastic wires in an epoxy and encapsulating the embedded grid between two layers of Kapton, the embedded sensorcan be used as a layer in a composite, thus forming a multi-functional structure. When one of the Kapton layers is replaced with a flex-circuit ...

  5. Stereo CSO Detection, Tracking and Object Feature Extraction for SBIRS Low Midcourse Discrimination

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The Space Based Infrared System (SBIRS) is scoped to provide timely and accurate warning of missile attacks against the United States and Allied forces worldwide. The SBIRS Low component provides information to active defensive systems by detecting andtracking intercontinental, intermediate/medium, and short range ballistic missiles in their boost (TBR), post boost, mid-course and early terminal ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Single-Walled Nanotube Composite Structures for Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) possess a unique combination of high strength, high modulus and high elongation. Before the benefits of these materials can be realized in BMD structural applications, SWNT fillers must be made compatible with thethermosetting resins traditionally used in these applications so that load transfer into the nanotubes can be accomplished. In the proposed progr ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. SiC Optical Telescope for Next Generation Midcourse Interceptors

    SBC: SSG, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Advanced seeker systems for endo- and exo-atmospheric applications will utilize infrared and visible signature of ballistic threats in addition to LADAR ranging and imaging information for improved identification, discrimination and tracking. This futurecapability requires diffraction limited near visible performance for the optical system, while still maintaining the low cost production capabil ...

  10. Short Pass Deep UV Omnidirectional Optical Filter With Ultra Wide Blocking Range

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This SBIR Phase I proposal addresses a need for improved UV and deep UV filters for aerospace and defense applications. A new approach to the design and fabrication short pass filters, based on a new photonic material, will allow filters to be made withtransmission at wavelengths as short as 130nm or less. Both these properties are unachievable by any other means. In Phase I, it is proposed to ...
